Road Trip - I have only one more week of parental leave, so Jenny and I have decided to make the most of it by going away for the next couple of days. We're heading to Healdsburg in Sonoma County for a stay at the new Hotel Healdsburg. There are some nice restaurants close by and the town is full of antique shops for us to check out. It's also in the middle of Wine Country, but since neither of us drink, we won't be going to any wineries. Yes, we are going to bring the baby, so things could get interesting.

Both Jenny and I have noticed that little Russell has become more irritable in the evenings. The pediatrician called it "evening colic", but she could give no explanation why he cries uncontrollably for a couple of hours per night. We've attempted to calm down the little boy by feeding him as much as possible before bedtime, but that doesn't always work. Jenny's started to just let him cry himself to sleep at times, but I feel guilty about letting the poor boy wail away. However, it does seem to work at times.
