I tried to stay hopeful and optimistic, but I feared it was all over. After leaving the clinic, J and I headed to our favorite Mexican restaurant for a belated celebration of my birthday (it’s our long-standing tradition). It was a bit subdued.
This year we again had a belated celebration of my birthday at the restaurant, and there were three of us along 🙂 Last year’s and this year’s visits were starkly contrasted, but I definitely prefer this year!
Daniel did well for most of the meal, but I think the noise and light bothered him because he became fussy about halfway through. He seemed to prefer being held to being in his car seat, so I held him for the rest of the time. He charmed our waitress, and she held him and chatted with him in Spanish. The only word we caught was “el guapo,” which apparently means handsome or ladies’ man LOL. In response, he grinned at her three times. Living up to it already!
