Winery Baby

Ern is sort of a gym rat at this point.

We did this support group thing of new parents for months. It was one of those things that I dreaded, it was two hours long each meeting, but usually I was happy I did once it was over. It was nice to hear that other new parents were having similar issues to us. It was also nice to hear when they were having a worse time than us so I felt like we were doing better by comparison. Sometimes I wonder if I am a bad person.

Anyway we made a couple of legitimate friends from the group and invited them out to Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery for some wine tasting. They are German and I think we have this weird thing where we make friends with foreigners better than Americans sometimes. I guess people that have moved here necessarily already have more of an international mindset that we appreciate? I'm not really sure what it is. We had fun anyway. Their baby is funny because he is very stoic and serious compared to Ernie. Comparing Ernie to other babies is a fun way to get to know him better because I don't have a ton of baby experience other than him so it's difficult to know what is his personality and what is just standard baby behavior.
