Today Riley and I braved the elements (more like the bitter, bitter cold) and went to Progressive to see Kevin. I don't think I've ever seen a more proud papa. Kevin met us as we entered the building and immediately moved to take Riley out of her carseat. He couldn't wait to hold her! When we made it up to his floor, we were swarmed with co-workers and friends - it was very endearing to have this many people interested in our baby!
I even said to Kevin that it was nice to be there ... but only because I had Riley with me ... and I knew I could leave whenever I wanted. I walked past my desk and forced away the yucky thoughts of having to return to it in just six weeks. For now I was with Riley ... and that was all that mattered.
Now we're back home, all warm inside and ready to take a nap together ... just me and my baby girl.
