Redemption Day

Today I redeemed my firstborn son.  It was much less traumatic than the bris, but no less weird.  I “bought back” Asher for 5 silver dollars (and additional tzedakah) after which our Kohen friend “Joe the doctor” swung the coins over Asher’s head, made a few blessings, and then invited us to breakfast.  Like I said, a little weird.

The other exciting things today were the arrival of the crib mattress and (we think) the presentation of real smiles!
