Doesn't he look serious? Doesn't take much after mom or dad then...perhaps he will develop a sense of humor in the next couple of weeks or months...with parents like us, he better...
There was one thing I didn’t want for my 30th birthday: I did not want to be a mother yet. I wanted to be able to enjoy the day on my terms. Turns out my son already has great manners: not only did he follow those wishes, he also comes early than expected to important events. Although he wasn’t expected until this Thursday, he decided to make his debut into the world last Friday, a belated 30th birthday present Mom was very happy to get!
For many of you, this post is kind of bewildering, because it sounds like I had a baby on Friday, and I never mentioned I was pregnant. Well, that is the case: just a few weeks after being married, my husband and I found out that we were going to be parents just 9 months after being married: we have one of those honeymoon babies. I just wanted to savor the moment and experience, and I never really got around to posting about it.
Being a parent is still very surreal. I can’t believe that the little squirming cutie is mine. Or that I am a mother and my husband is a father (an awesome one, by the way: I call him the human pacifier). And it’s great watching the dog adapt to this new family member. It’s an adventure for sure. So here are a few pics from the past few days:
Susie sensed that something was up and went to go lay in my suitcase that I was packing for the hospital...yes, ladies and gentlemen, I waited until going into labor to pack that suitcase...good thing we live close to the hospital, so my husband was able to bring me things I had forgotten.
She even placed one of her bones in the suitcase, thinking maybe if she packed something from her we would take her...and I believe this is her attempt at making it impossible for us to go without her...like I would have to zip the suitcase closed with her in it.
Less than 4 hours at the hospital and I was already a mother...this child is already making things easy on mom.
So the newest family member is Susie approved. She is a little bewildered by it all, and wants to lick him, but is confused by his lack on interest or engagement with her...that will change in the future though.
So, now this blog is now officially the dog and baby blog...
