Rebecca and her friend (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Morning: I mowed the whole yard & watered most of it. Did some more organization in the garage. RLF played across the street with her friend who’s about to move away to Georgia. They had a good time, but parted in[…]

Benjamin and me (Copyright © 2013 by Marline Fry. All rights reserved.) Morning: I filled up the Sable for $3.219/gallon, the cheapest we’ve seen in a while. Cashed a check sent to Benjamin; put the money in his savings pile — he has slightly more than Rebecca now; we’ll even it out later perhaps. RLF[…]

Rebecca with her newly acquired set of trains (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) The trains/tracks that Rebecca received from a neighbor the day before were her sole occupation today. In the morning, I set up a track circuit for her (and later improved on it), and she ran trains on[…]

(Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Morning: I walked with RLF to the playground; she played for half an hour or so and then we walked back. We hadn’t been there in weeks; I think she appreciated it more because of the absence. MF took her to the library for some[…]

(Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Took Benjamin back to Metroplex for his hearing test — he passed without issue as we guessed he would. (On June 12, he’d been given two hearing tests, once passing with just his left ear and once passing with just his right ear.) On the[…]

Benjamin smiles when he hears Rebecca’s voice (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Benjamin had trouble sleeping at night again (in the crib). I put him next to me and he slept just fine. I don’t want to make a habit of it, but my wife needed some sleep — for[…]

(Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Burlington Coat Factory in the morning, for a few baby-related items. Ate lunch at Wendy’s in the mall, which reminded us why we rarely eat at Wendy’s (cost 30% more than McDonald’s, takes eight times as long to get food, part of order missing, food[…]

Rebecca holds Benjamin for the first time (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Received 0.95 inches of rain, most of it in a pre-dawn thunderstorm (and a tad in the afternoon). Perhaps it was the lightning and thunder, but Benjamin was awake from 1-3 a.m. and again at 4 a.m. I[…]

(Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) Benjamin is a week six days old today. (Edited to reflect correct age.) He turned his head from left to right — and back again — while on his tummy on the Baby Einstein gym. Rebecca also did it for the first time on that[…]

Benjamin was awake for a good two hours during the night, feeding on and off and generally just wanting to be held and to look around and listen to us talk to him. So I was exhausted when Rebecca woke me at 8 a.m. (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

Benjamin at four days old (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) The first day with all of us in the house (Thursday, June 13) passed quickly. I honestly don’t recall most of what we did. I think we ate at Chick-fil-A for lunch, Benjamin’s first time in a business establishment —[…]

Morning: Rebecca, my parents and I all drove to the hospital to meet Benjamin. Took a bunch of pictures. MF said she was fine, didn’t need me to stay. (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

First photo of Benjamin (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) The day began slowly enough. My wife went to work as scheduled. Rebecca and I played in the back yard as long as the shade of the house would allow. I should have known something was off; she hasn’t wanted to[…]

Benjamin Wesley Fry was born at 7 p.m. June 11, 2013, at Metroplex Adventist Hospital in Killeen, Texas. He was 6 lbs. 2 oz. That’s all I know as I write this. I have a much longer entry scheduled for tonight, but it probably won’t go live until morning. :-) CORRECTION: 6 lbs. 1.8 oz.[…]

We hit 99°F today, which is a record high for this day, according to both weather.com and wunderground.com, and the hottest day of 2013 so far. Still, the month has been cooler than the past two Junes. (Copyright © 2013 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)

Rebecca played in the evening with her friend (“Daley”) across the street. They’re moving in about a month. They played tug-of-war with a jump rope, neither ever winning or letting go — it’s been fun to see her play with someone so equally matched in almost every way, which seems to be rare among children.[…]
