For the first few days at home Baby Z looked around as if to say, "where's my entourage?" He is slowly recovering from two weeks of absolute attention. Now it seems like a dream and we are in the same routine as before our vacation. Except now the weather is getting hot and sticky.
We've been going to Canal Park since the water feature at Yards Park is closed for repairs. Baby Z isn't too keen on the actual fountains - unexpected jets of cold water! - but liked the shallow pool well enough. He LOVED the pool and the ocean when we were in Bohol, and hopefully with upcoming swimming lessons he'll be even more comfortable. We ended up enrolling at the YMCA in Alexandria, because the places in DC (DC public pools, JCC, or the Y downtown) were all booked or impossible logistically.
I've been trying to decide also what volunteer work I'll take up again. When I found out I was expecting I resigned from everything. Now that we have a pretty standard schedule and Baby Z is more autonomous I feel like ending the hiatus. So I could either go back to the organizations I used to volunteer for (for which I still care and regularly donate) or try something completely new.
As I sift through the trip photos I'll post some randomly.
Unfortunately "Happy Baby in Bassinet" didn't last for the whole 20+ hours.
Seoul Airport, like a boss.
Waiting to board the Manila-Tagbilaran flight, before the reality of diaper rash set in.
