Sleeping/Pooping/Eating Machine … and Not Much Else.

It’s interesting when you look into the eyes of a newborn.  You know they’re looking out and seeing things, but you can’t really figure out what they’re thinking… Are they thinking?  I have no idea as that would probably require a higher degree than my bachelors in Atmospheric Sciences. 

imageThat’s Junior.  (And I was so mad when I got the picture on a larger screen and noticed it wasn’t crisp.  Nothing makes an amateur photographer more frustrated than finding blur on a great picture.  That’s besides the point though…)

My point is that Stunning and I are putting a lot of work into baby and we’re not even sure he realizes it.  Now, it’s not like I’m going to stop, but I keep looking at him waiting for him to give me some feedback.  It’s only polite to say “Thanks” when someone else wipes your own butt, but instead he just screams when I do it. 

I love him to death and it’s going to be so fascinating watching him grow and develop.  Right now, I’m eagerly awaiting the first real smile.  (Not the fake… “I’ve got some strange gas bubbles, so I’m going to get a look on my face that is like a smile” smile, but a real smile.)  In the end though, what I can’t wait to do is talk to him… about anything… but just talk to him.

I feel you, none of my kids committed or contributed to anything until they were at least 6 months old.

I will say that you can talk to him right now. About anything. As much as you want. He won't judge and sometimes those gas bubble smiles are well-timed during your "talks".

It is not the most exciting time, but I promise you he is listening so talk away. It will be beneficial for both of you.

Dude, I'm almost 27 and I would be screaming if someone tried to do that to me.
