A Start

I was going to write a long, detailed post here. But Damon put me to sleep by rubbing my feet and now I only have a minute.

Thanks to my Friends who posted the arrival of my little baby. I was hoping that would happen, as I am still trying to get it together.

The only really important thing to say is that Alden is here. He has changed everything in the best possible ways. He loves scalp massages and Christopher Walken’s voice.

Soon I will post pictures that will paralyze you with their cuteness.

  1. Alden! I love it.
    I keep trying to come up with something really wise to say, but I just get all choked up. I love it when my friends have babies.

    • Thank you! He’s not remotely sophisticated yet, but maybe some day.
      We were actually watching (or playing, rather) the SNL Best of Christopher Walken and every time he spoke Alden would cast a suspicious eye towards the TV. It was pretty funny.

    • Thank you! I think of your early posts about Donovan often. I also make lots of mental notes of questions when breast feeding is challenging. I’m sure at some point I’ll get organized enough to actually ask you some of them.
      But I am both comfortable and energized most of the time, and thrilled all of the time.
