Things Sean Doesn't Know Differently
1. Syracuse always beats UConn.
2. Occasionally the Orange require more than the regulation 40 minutes to beat their opponents.
3. It's always sunny in Rochester in March.
This was Sean's first week in the world and what an eventful week it was. First there was the minor detail of him being born in the early, early hours of Sunday, March 8. After what seemed to be an interminable 4 days in the hospital, Mom and Papa were allowed to take Sean home and leave the uncomfortable confines of Room3-1619 behind. Even though hospital chairs fold down into a flat surface resembling a bed they were not meant to be slept on for more than one night.
After a couple days of getting used to a new home and being up at all hours of the night, Sean received his first visitors. Grandpa George and Grandma Terry flew in from Durham, NC to spend some quality time with their first grandchild. The weekend was filled with much college basketball, napping on Grandpa's chest in the afternoon and a lovely stroll through Highland Park.
Mom and Papa are looking forward to Sean's second week in the world, and are hoping he continues, and even extends, his three hour sleeps at night.
On behalf of his parents, Sean would like to thank Grandma Donna for being a tremendous support and resource during this first week. Without her timely food deliveries and excellent advice, Mommy and Papa would've been lost and hungry. Thank you!
