Hail the wisdom of the American Consular Office!
We went in today to do the Report of Birth stuff and were also given forms for her passport and social security number. All done in one swoop. Yesterday I got some passport photos and I thought they’d work but they wanted her face straight on. I was recommended a nearby photographer and after we finished up the rest I headed over there. It was a bit of a challenge getting her eyes to open and stay open but the employees were really nice and seemed to have fun. I had been given a labeled envelope to put them in and just dropped them off as I passed by on the way home, no need to go through security again.
One of the women who went over our paperwork (and performed the oath for the passport) said “I have kids, but that is one cute baby.”
I also had another opportunity to get some exercise. These two times I’ve gotten in 30 minutes. It included a warm-up, stretches and then some abdominal work. By that time Sara Ellen gets a little fussy. As it is my abdominals I want to work, this suits me fine so far. Maybe in the evening or on weekends I can get Tim to hold her while I do the full hour.
We pick up our snazzy new stroller on Monday.
Oh, and it’s still snowing!
