2 Months

Dear Baby Boy,

I am shamelessly ripping off this idea from a bunch of other blogs, mainly Dooce, of writing a little letter to her child on their monthly birthday.

You might have noticed I skipped month number one.

I have a good excuse.

You see, you have an older sister. You might have noticed her. She has been around for quite some time now and we really, really like her. However, she keeps us busy.

With things like this
and this
and even this
So I kind of missed writing about you. About how amazing it was to bring you home from the hospital and how mellow you were in the midst of our crazy first few weeks at home. How you were so good for me and Dr. Dad and let us focus on Baby Girl and all her goings on. How you let us drag you around to your first big introduction to Dr. Dad's BIG family at their annual picnic, and then up to Lakeside for our vacation and then to Pennsylvania to meet my family. Even how you let me take pictures of you with your Bunny.

So now you are two months old. Starting to smile and coo and get really, really happy when you see Mr. Sun on your playmat. You are still pretty mellow. But boy, can you ever spit-up. This is something your sister NEVER did and it has thrown me for a loop. Well, mostly it has thrown our laundry for a loop, but you get the idea. But you make up for the increasing laundry with the smiles

and also the way Dr. Dad likes to pose you with the pets.

We are anxiously awaiting every new thing with you. I am excited to see how big you have grown in these few months with us. So welcome to our little world Baby Boy. Sorry in advance for all the bunny pictures.

Happy 2 month Birthday,

Everybody Else Is Doing It...

So I like to read. I like the Internet. I like people to read what I read on the Internet. What to do about this? Start a blog.

When Baby Girl was born I needed a way to keep everyone updated on her health and progress. I found a free web page that I could update and send out to everyone. It had issues...such as limited picture space and the inability to save what you wrote from month to month (resulting in the permanent loss of whatever I wrote about her in the first few postings). So when Baby Boy was born I thought he should have his own page too. Until I found out it would have to be a separate web page with a new email address. In addition, to preserve whatever I wrote, I would have to print out these pages every month. I am finding out I don't have the time or the desire to do this. So I decided to start a blog.

I love blogs. They are kind of like Internet diaries and since I am hardly shy about my life, I figured why not have my own?

I am hoping this is will be a way to document our pretty average American Life. Including exciting updates on the kids, the adults, heck, even the pets. Since I am new to all this, I'm not using our real the kids are Baby Girl and Baby Boy, my husband is Dr. Dad and the pets are, well, the pets. And me? I'm Lucky. More on that to come.
