>Doesn’t cry much, but grunts a lot and makes noises that sound like a goat.

>Is a good nurser, although he needed quite a bit of teaching at first.

>Am really looking forward to getting back into a routine eventually.
>Can eat ice cream again without feeling sick!
>Love the warmer weather that we’re having, and intend to get out and about more now because of it. Trips to the craft and thrift stores are in my near future.
