ninja-like vomiting 

crying without taking breaths 

escaping from swaddles like Houdini

listening to The Beatles (especially the Abbey Road side-two medley—because that’s all my mom can think of to sing to me when I’m throwing a fit) 

working in the garage with Dad

Favorite pastimes: 
taking warm baths


filling up my britches 

watching baby TV 

throwing gang signs

In just 11 days.......

........ I have learned a whole slew of new things.

  • childbirth isn't that scary
  • babies aren't as breakable as I had previously thought
  • it actually IS possible to take a 3 minute shower
  • breastfeeding isn't for everyone--you're a lifesaver, Medela!
  • baby clothing makers need to find something better than those impossible little snaps
  • projectile pooping 
  • I can't keep a thought in my head for more than 5 seconds. I'm getting good at making lists
  • babies are a lot more fun when they're yours :)
