Is it Friday yet?

It's been a long week in babyville. Good thing it's Friday. Oh wait. I don't get weekends off! Oliver has us running around like crazy people. Nothing too major to report for the week's big activities. Lots of laundry got done, but not much else!
Here's a rundown of notable events in Oliver's 5th week of life:
1. Won't you be my neighbor? : Our neighbors up the hill (who are from Lawton!) came over and brought us dinner. Actually, they made us a 5-star gourmet meal, complete with dessert, wine, and somehow got our fussy child to fall asleep. This was our first time meeting them. Needless to say, they are welcome here anytime!
2. Baby Blowout! : I thought I was adjusted to cleaning up messy, runny baby poop, but this particular blowout was by far something I had not seen before. Let's just say that baby diarrhea has a shooting range of about 6 feet. Lots of scrubbing of the carpet after that one.
3. First "babysitter": I had a doctor appointment this morning, and instead of taking the baby with me, a girl from Matt's clinic offered to watch him. She is Matt's partner's daughter and happens to live above the clinic. So, I dropped off Oliver with her and everyone at the clinic. This was the first non-relative to watch Oliver. It was only for an hour, but I did have a twinge of guilt for dumping him off already after only 5 weeks! Oh well. I guess he will have to get used to it at some point. Might as well start now. ;)
4. Bowling and babies: We are taking the kiddo with us tonight for bowling and beers (his will only be the 3.2 stuff, promise). I will let you know how it goes!
