First day back at work was good - felt efficient and helpful and in my element. After work I went out to eat with Ruth and Chris and then sent the evening with her at their house, in Liam's bright nursery, sorting little clothes into size categories and petting baby toys. They have little stations for Liam in every room - the cosleeper in the bedroom, little swing in the kitchen, bouncy seat in the nursery, bassinet in the livingroom, and, of course, car seat in the car (to be properly installed by firemen) and crib in the nursery. It is beautiful to see this house, which I remember Ruth buying as a young single woman, transforming into a haven for herself and Chris as a couple, now transforming again into a family home.
