Like Jeff, I have some backlog.
I went to visit Alice, a friend from UCLA. It was actually kind of a big day for me, because I was still figuring out how to get out of the apartment with Z. And everything went perfectly.
This is where she lives--Malibou Lake. It's one of my favorite spots around here. It's about 45 minutes away, so it was quite an accomplishment to get there on my own with six-week-old Z.
This was Jessica's all female b-day party. (Jessica helped Mike marry us later.) In this picture we're doing this little ceremony where we all have to say something nice about Jess and hold these candles. It started off a little queer and embarrassing but ended up pretty cool.
During the whole party, I was totally working the boho LA mom thing by carrying Z around in a sling. In fact, a party on Echo Park hillside terrain is really the only practical use I have found for the sling. I used to wear it around the house just to put Z to sleep, but the idea that one can accomplish household chores while wearing this thing is totally ludicrous!
Before our wedding, we walked Z to a local park to brainstorm our vows. It got chilly, so I put this thing on him.
