Since Monday, we’ve been seeing unseasonably cool temperatures, even setting record lows at night. Though it’s been 90°F or higher in the afternoons, it still feels cool and breezy after the searing summer heat wave. My wife was off work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, during which we took several walks with Rebecca, each time going[...]
Since returning from our trip to Odessa (blog entry; photos), life has returned to normal, whatever that means.
Today, I’m home alone. My wife took Rebecca to church and I stayed here. Nothing odd about that, until I started feeling strange. I realized it’s the first time I’ve been home by myself since Rebecca was in NICU. And thus, it’s also the first time my wife has taken Rebecca somewhere without me.
Contradicting my last entry, we’re actually doing something interesting besides watching Rebecca grow. Beginning last night, we’re hosting Marline’s friend Valentina for a few days. This is the first time anyone besides my family has come to see us in Killeen.
During the last few days, we’ve enjoyed ourselves. My wife had two days off in the middle of the week, so we were able to go swimming again, for one thing. Rebecca is enjoying the pool more each time, getting comfortable in the water. She splashes with her hands and kicks with her legs (and[...]
Any time I don’t post for several days, you can assume the obvious reasons: Rebecca. She’s much more independent now, so you’d think I’d have more time to blog. Ha. She will play by herself for long periods of time, as long as I’m not attempting to use the computer.

I was once a morning person. By that, I mean I used to wake up early in high gear and go full speed until sometime in the evening, when I would slow down and eventually come to a complete stop. That was during my childhood, all the way up through high school, until I got[...]
Today, the forecast high was (still is!) 77°F, though our current temperature is 82°F. Instead of the early morning clouds giving way to afternoon sun, today has been sunny all day. The grass is starting to grow again (though the weeds are growing faster, I admit). I think Rebecca likes the warmer weather, other than[...]
Ever since the warm weather returned (almost a week ago now), we’ve been enjoying it. We’ve taken Rebecca outside for at least a few minutes every day, which she seems to enjoy. We went on another walk Sunday afternoon, on the as-of-yet-unfinished trails nearby: (Copyright © 2011 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.)
