Today was my first day, and it was long. I was born very early this morning, and after that everything was all aflutter. I tried feeding with Mommy, and then they took me away to get checked out or processed or whatever. I could have told you that I was healthy, but the doctor confirmed it.
Then it was eating, sleeping, pooping, repeat. I pooped FOUR TIMES today! I'm not sure if you're interested in this information, but I'm the center of attention, it seems, so I can do what I want. I'm also really tired. Daddy thinks I'm having nightmares about certain birth canals. I also dream about roller coasters, like some of my friends do.
The cycle was broken up with my first bath, which I did NOT enjoy. Too cold!!! I like being warm and wrapped up. I don't cry often, but I'll let you know if I'm too cold. It helps keep Mommy and Daddy moving quickly with the diaper changes.
The doctor checked me out again, and he said my body temp is too low. See? What did I tell you? So they're keeping me wrapped up with a funky hat on. I make the look work.
Daddy left to take a shower at home, and on the way he talked with my Unkie Chad. They worked out a dowry for me and Natalie to get married. July 23, 2031. Save the date!
When Daddy came back, some girls came to visit me. It was my friends Rachel and Theresa! They were my first visitors. Rachel is one of my godmothers, and Theresa is my god-Methodist. They brought my Mom ice cream. They brought my dad coffee. They brought me presents, and gave me lots of attention, and took lots of pictures. It took me HOURS to figure out how to upload them. It's not the problem of using my hands, it's just that I'm not used to working with iPhoto. I still can't figure out how to rotate them in Blogger. What do you expect? I'm a newborn!
Auntie Rachel liked to hold me, but Aunt Theresa got confused by a balloon.
She eventually figured it out.
Then she got confused again.
Then the balloon took a picture of Auntie Rachel and me.
Now I'm sleeping (try wrapping your grown-up mind around THAT ONE) and Mommy and Daddy are getting ready for bed. All in all, a pretty eventful day. I'm not sure if coming out was a good decision, but a lot of other people sure think is was. Later.
