Hillary vs Palin on SNL

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

I meant to post this video a long time ago, but was just reminded when I received it via forward. It’s pretty darn hilarious no matter who you’re laughing at. (I wanted to find it on Youtube so I could embed the video directly for ya, but what would you know? Most of the […]

She is her mother’s daughter

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Today was the baby’s first experience with solid adult food – chocolate. (Would I treat her to anything less? Please.) Josh had made me some brownies, which I was gleefully eating in front of her making mmmmMMM noises. Sofía stared at me with an intent and slightly confused expression, and then as I lifted gooey […]

Hi Dad!

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

To everyone who received this blog from my dad, meticulously copied into a Word document and sent to you via email attachment: thanks for stopping by. See, I do know how to format. Really.

Lesson #1: If you get close enough to nuzzle Sofía’s fat little cheeks when she’s feisty, it will result in headbutting. Also, her response to my telling her I love her seems to be to punch me in the face. (I think I’ll choose to look at this through parent-colored glasses and interpret it as […]

In which we stick the baby with needles

Friday, September 19th, 2008

Poor thing got all her immunizations yesterday, and for the first time cried so hard that just being picked up by mommy and cuddled couldn’t make it all better. (I think – despite having sworn I wasn’t going to be one of Those Parents – I cried even more than she did.) Then we got […]

Our little girl is short and fat

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

We had our two-month checkup yesterday, and she behaved like a champ. I can’t wait till she’s old enough to celebrate by going to the ice cream shop. (Because I’m sure that I read somewhere that it’s a good idea to associate rewards with unhealthy foods. Probably right next to the chapter that recommended spanking.) […]

2 months!

Friday, September 12th, 2008

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 8 weeks and we haven’t accidentally killed the baby yet. In fact, sometimes I even feel like I might be getting a tentative grip on this whole “parenthood” thing – this strange, fey state that previously only applied to other people. I’m happy to report that, having finally […]

Why sleep deprivation sucks for everyone

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

 Sofía tricked me. She behaved admirably this past week, reliably sleeping three 3-hour stretches each night and, dependably, a nap from 2-4 every afternoon. This behavior lasted just long enough for me to call up my parents and friends and brag about it last evening. Needless to say, she then felt no pressure to maintain […]
