Stay at Home Dad: Day One

14 11 2007

Well, we both survived our first day sans maman. Hugo made it easy on me by taking long naps with little prompting. We were both getting antsy by the afternoon so I decided to encase him in the Baby Bjorn and take the J Church streetcar down to the SF Ferry Building. There, surrounded by wide-eyed tourists, Oracle World sheep, and the idle rich browsing the precious shops, Hugo and I took in the scene. We looked for evidence of the oil spill that seems to be dominating the local news but found nary a greased gull.

After a while, Hugo became hungry and I attempted to feed him from his bottle. I guess I was holding it wrong because he promptly took it from me and held it firmly in place with both of his little hands. Steady and sure as if he’d been doing it for years. See the evidence in the video above.

The boy will probably wake from his morning nap any minute now and I still haven’t figured out where we’re going to go today. Chinatown? That might be too overwhelming, but he’s more interested in his hands than firecrackers and roasting ducks, so it might not be a big deal.

Hugo seems intent on running his own show. This is a great follow-up to the O Canada skit that he and his Mom did.
