such a new mom  

I am such a new Mom. I am willing to concede that my friends have cute children, but I’m afraid none of those children can possibly be as utterly adorably charmingly perfect as young Mister Henry. Even if I know all their parents think the same things about their children. It’s slightly embarrassing. :)

Obviously I have a lot to post about. Someday I might even have the energy to do it. That moment, however, is not now.

Couple pictures behind the cut. :)

Henry on the baby quilt his Grandma Murphy made for him. (We have so many amazing quilts and blankets from people. I need to get a picture of him with all of them.)

My current favorite picture of Henry and Ted, who has unexpectedly gotten to feed His Small Self after an emergency breast-pump purchase, because HOLY CRAP THE BOOB FAIRY. It was like the poor baby was trying to latch onto a softball. The size of Toledo.

What a beautiful quilt! And I love the one woth Ted and Henry--makes me go all "D'awwwwww . . ."

The Toledo softball comment, OTOH? Bwahahahahaha!

Your Henry is awfully cute. But I've got the cutest 3 year old EVAR (no offense to other three year olds) so I quite understand the love.

Oh, and I'll see your softball and raise you a soccer ball. Or, "football" as they call it out your way. My supreme sympathies, and good luck getting it all sorted out. Sounds like things are mostly going well, so I'm sure they will.

I lied.

Henry is possibly the cutest baby ever...
but don't tell any of my friends or cousins I said so.

I can honestly say - as an aunt - that he is the most gorgeous and adorable baby (born this decade so far.)

Are you counting from 2010 or from 2001?

He is a cutie though.

Has he started grinning with the nipple in his mouth as he starts falling asleep? That tops the list as one of my favorites every time it happens with my little man.

And I have to agree. There is just something about watching the father of your child feeding them. It's magic.

I spent so long staring at the face of my daughter when she was born that it was a shock to look at an adult face. The feature were suddenly too large, too coarse, just all wrong. Nineteen years later and I still think she is the most beatiful girl in the world (a pain in the arse a lot of the time, but still beautiful).

I do love the way your daughter managed to lose her West Lunnun accent and find a Somerset one instead.

Awwwwwwww! SO TINY!

Also, awesome quilt. :)

I was already DDD when I had Arthur. I do remember those rockhard times, and when I'd start to leak. When he was about 8-9 mo. old, I went to a Loreena McKennitt concert up in SF, 90 min drive each way. I had some dinner while I was up there, and by the time I got home, it hurt, and I was ready to nurse right away.

When I had to quit nursing at 11 mos for medical reasons, he did not yet have any teeth, so I never got bitten. I did however have to deal with him using a nursing grip when suddenly he'd turn his head 180 degrees. That was no fun. He did wean very easily.

He is adorable.
