Things have been a bit busy the past few weeks. We had our baby (Jonah Benjamin Cormack) on February 10th, and he came out huge (ten pounds, eleven ounces). It wasn't anything too serious, but there was a small issue with his breathing and he had to be in the NICU for a few days. The NICU had mostly premature babies in it, which made our giant baby look like the Incredible Hulk in comparison. We are back home now, getting adjusted to life without sleep and to constant diaper changes (and the threat of being peed on during those diaper changes).
After things settled down and we developed a routine, I had a chance to get out and get a few pictures. One rainy night last week, I headed out to downtown Little Rock. I went out to a bridge over I-630 which has this view of rush hour traffic and part of the skyline in the background.
From there I headed into downtown and tried to get a few pictures. I headed by the Pulaski County Courthouse, which was built in 1887. It's one of my favorite buildings in Little Rock, and I've taken this shot many times.
It had stopped raining, but the low clouds still lingered and reflected the city light. This was taken from the Junction Bridge.
We had a lot of rain that day, and Riverfront Park was lined with deep puddles. I found this one, which had a little reflection of the skyline behind it.
Luckily my work has an amazing paternal leave policy, so I'm going to be able to spend a lot of time with the new baby over the next several weeks (and maybe sneak in a few more trips out to take pictures when I'm not changing diapers).
