New Baby Name September 24, 2006

Posted by gordonwatts in life.

Day 8Not sure why I like this, but my wife has taking to calling our baby “J-Mo”. Short for J-Monster. All in affection, of course. πŸ™‚

This is the last evening of “vacation.” That is, we pack everything up that we’ve had here in Ottawa for the last two months and cart it 3000 miles back across the USA to Seattle. The ostensible reason to come up here was to learn how to deal with a new born baby.

Now, if she would stop changing from day to day we might have actually accomplished that. But she is a totally different character each day. One day all fuss, the next day no poop, the third day ALL poop, and then sleep-all-the-time. We’ve been good parents (but no ice cream for her yet) and bad parents (I drew first blood, but both of us have cut her now). It has been fun and exhausting.

And there are another 20 years to go! Onward, ho!

One day all fuss, the next day no poop, the third day ALL poop…

Well, if you don’t see any poop for a day, you know all that poop’s gotta be SOMEWHERE… πŸ™‚

p.s. J-Mo’s got a very impressive mane going on there! I wonder which side she got that from? πŸ˜‰

Aaron — yes. She has had something like that since day one. Pretty amazing it didn’t fall out. And I actually think that comes from Paula’s side of the family — I didn’t have hair when I showed up…

SparkleCow — nice nic-name! πŸ™‚ You should start a blog called that!
