Meet Absurdist Baby!


Here he is, this baby I'm totally in love with. You can see he is just kicking back, taking a little doze. He loves having his arms over his head when he sleeps. He is also just the most peaceful sweet thing in the world when he sleeps. Holding him gives me a high, which should make him a controlled substance. I just adore him.

I've also learned a lot about myself through the whole experience -- such as that I'm very proud and that I'm not good at relaxing. I started off at the birth center and ended up having a c-section at a hospital, exactly the scenario I most feared. But it was okay, a disappointment, of course, but it could've been worse. And most important, the baby is healthy and happy.

Mmmm. Don't you just want to kick back on some blankets and snuggle with him? Or is it just me?

Lovely, lovely, lovely!

I'm so happy for you! Happy that you're happy, especially. :)

(And my word verification is 'petyer', which is telling you to go pet yer baby, obviously.)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!


And he's very very cute! If it all worked out well in the end, don't beat yourself up over how the birthing stuff went. After all, that part's over (whew!).

And I couldn't comment when you posted the announcement --- your box was all different and messed up. :-(

he's so beautiful! he looks like (as SB would say) a total "cuddle bunny" and who wouldn't want to snuggle with that little dude? (yes, i call all cute baby boys little dudes; i don't know why--it seems antithetical to my world view.)

you know, i told my friend, the birthing and breastfeeding instructor that you said he like to sleep with his arms up, and she said, "well, that explains the c-section!" she said that babies who sleep like that, slept like that in utero, and that his little arms being up over his head kept him from coming down the birth canal. so see! baby came out the way he wanted to! and all is good.

i love that you're so happy.

loves to babies. (i also make baby plural when they're cute, too. i'm a dork.)
