Today was Simon’s first trip into London! We had to apply for his passport at the embassy – so Steve stayed home from work and we headed into town in the afternoon. Since we were headed to the embassy, where camera weren’t allowed, I left my camera in the car and don’t have pictures from our time in central London – but we were on business – not much sightseeing – so you’re not missing much. Steve did take a picture of us in the car park to record the occasion.
And I took a silly tourist photo because it must be done on one’s first trip to London.
After our business was done (I’ll post soon on the actual embassy business) we stopped to see our friends and their new baby. Alan is Steve’s co-worker, and their baby was born almost exactly 8 weeks after Simon. I knew I’d be shocked how much difference there would be between the boys – but I wasn’t prepared to realize just now much Simon has grown! He’s hardly a tiny baby anymore. He is more of a thug. A first side-by-side photo was required to mark the occasion.
Then Simon and Jackson could commence the play date part of the day. They had a blast.
Then Megan cooked us dinner. It was fabulous pasta, but I am more than a little embarrassed that instead of us taking them dinner she cooked us dinner.
Simon was a trooper all day – as usual. He is so easy to take out and content to be toted about. Now, with a passport we’ll be able to tote him all around the world!
