January 2006


Wow! It was so bright out today! Mom and Dad said the sun was out, but what would I know, I’m only two weeks old. Anyway, my two servants took me down to the river in my chariot. I’ve included a photo. Enjoy!

So it’s been eleven days since I arrived here. Mom and Dad are starting to get the hang of things. As for me, I’m just starting to be able to focus on their faces (they sure do stare at me a lot). For fun I like to trick Dad into changing my diaper before I’m done, and when he’s got me on the table – BAM! I had him go through four diapers in one change once.

Last night I slept for almost 3 and a half hours straight, which Mom thinks is great. Dad fed me a big bottle of Mom’s milk the other night before bed and I went out like a light. Personally I’d rather be up looking at things, but after a big meal like that, I get so sleepy I can’t help myself. Then Mom and I get up for just two quiet feeds after that big nap. Mom and Dad think I’m on some sort of “schedule” but little do they know I have other plans for them, wait and see.

So Dad showed me this really funny video from Saturday Night Live the other night (here). I hear its the funniest thing SNL has done in a long time, but I wouldn’t know since I’ve only been around for 1 Saturday. Anyway, the video talks about these great cupcakes which I just had to see for myself. Fortunately, the cupcake shop is only a few blocks from my house and Mom and Dad go there frequently. Today they took me with them. (For some reason, I got a sense of deja vu on the trip… almost as if I had been there before, only before I was born…).

I just had my first bath. Mommy washed me on the kitchen counter. I liked it so much that I pooped in my towel. Oops!

I love my hippo towel!

Wow! I’m finally here! Who are all these people? They’re acting like they’ve never seen a 7lb 6oz bundle of joy before. I’ve got to go take my APGAR test now, I’ll write more when I’m done with it.
