Best Pictures of Week 6

tummy time

snuggling in our bed on Sunday morning

the I (heart) my cats t-shirt was a gift from our wonderful neighbors, Mary Lou and Michael.

Those poor cats, who were the babies of this household before the arrival of "The Hairless Kitten" as I'm sure they refer to her, are so neglected that Cali has gone on a hunger strike and Frank just lays on the landing in front of the closed nursery door (which used to be "their room") and sighs heavily.

Pediatrician's Visit

Sloane weighs in at 8 pounds, 15 ounces and 21.75 inches. She's 35th percentile for weight, 65th percentile for height and 76th percentile for head circumference... so: tall, skinny and with a BIG HEAD like her daddy!!!

When I had to take her diaper off so that they could measure and weigh her, she had a bowel movement on the table. As I embarassedly cleaned it up, she decided to pee. Then, after I and the nurse cleaned that up, she spit up.

The nurse was cracking up.

Best Pictures of Week 4

Be quiet already... you're giving me a headache.

that's sooo John's nose

I swore I'd never succumb to the lure of the "binky", but after several sleepless nights and a consult with our pediatrician, I gave in. During my pregnancy, I was the Best Mother Who'd Never Had a Child - with all the best intentions. Now I subscribe to the Whatever Works school of parenting.
