Catching up on pictures

8 04 2006

We haven’t put any pictures up in a week, so here come a bunch.

First, here’s how our cats respond to the kid. Get away from me!


Before my mom & grandmom left, we got a four-generation picture:


Here’s how mother and child now spend the mornings:


Now, if you ask me, this fathering thing isn’t so hard. Earlier this week, we bought a baby sling that lets me carry him around and keep my hands free. So I can calm the baby and drink a beer, for example.


Or calm the baby and give him one of my hats to wear.


Sometimes, though, he just likes to be rocked to sleep. That’s when technology helps me with my fathering duties. I can hold him, rock him, and simultaneously watch The Daily Show on my video iPod.


Alex turns three weeks old tomorrow, and so far we’re counting our blessings. No, he doesn’t sleep through the night — but he does fall back to sleep pretty quickly after he gets fed. And when he’s awake, he’s pretty calm. I don’t think we can have another kid, because I don’t think we’d be this lucky again.

Ahhh – I love the one with Memom & Becky & the boys…so my favorite part about that photo is that Alex sticks his tongue out in photos just like his great grandmother!! LOL (so I need to know how you got her to keep it in for this photo…looks like you held her coat randsom!)
