should make all kinds of apologies about not updating my blog, but this
point it just seems lame. So guess what, you get busy after having a
kid! Who knew!?
And besides, I heard on NPR that cool kids don’t blog anymore. I am ahead of the effin’ curve, man!
That being said, anyone out there who might have been following along and doesn’t know me personally, everything went great! The kiddo is great! Being a parent is hard but mostly less hard than I imagined. And a whole lot more fun. Alfie is big and funny and cute. He looks like me a little and his dad a little. He was born with a head of spikey dark hair, but promptly lost it all and is now growing in fuzzy light hair. He likes blinky lights and pretending he can stand. He like fart noises so he fits right in at our house. We sing silly songs and try our damndest to get him to laugh. He laughs like an old man – seriously, it goes HEH HEH HEH, so hilarious. He also talks more than any baby I have know, just chatty, chatty, chatty. I have no idea what he is saying but he is very ardent and I try to keep up. I am pretty sure we don’t bath him enough, but it is so cold and we keep his face, hands and butt clean. He is busting out of his 6 months clothes, the kid has some long arms and legs. At his last doctor’s appointment (for an ear infection, boo!), he was 17lbs and 27 inches. He is determined to roll over any day now.It is pretty cool.
