On Saturday we brought Zack to his new house and showed him around. Here he is in his rocket shirt given to us by Kathy and Sarah. Zack's least favorite things are having his shirt or diaper changed, so he started out the trip pretty honked off.
And then he got more honked off while Tara the helpful nurse showed us how to buckle him into his car seat. Yeah, he hated that.
This pic is a bit gratuitous but I was all excited about my perfect level of preparation. Car parked, door open, seat forward, car seat ready, picture taken...onward!
With all the commotion enough time had passed that Zack was hungry again, and Jules had to fake him out with a finger. If he was thrilled to be outside for the very first time he didn't tell us.
But he did let us know that he likes driving in the car by promptly conking out. I drove about 15 mph the whole way home.
Here we are crossing the threshold...
...and here we are seconds later in Zack's room, parked in the glider chair Julie's grandmother got us. All that work going into his room and it wasn't nearly complete until this moment. Shortly after this I took a nap and Zack further completed the moment by peeing and spitting up on all kinds of stuff, including his rocket shirt, the crib we got from Tekla and Bruce, and the new Boppy we got from my sister Casey.
Feeding completed, we wrapped the sleepy traveller in his monkey blanket. (Monkey blanket courtesy of Grandma.)
