First and foremost, before I do anything else, I would like to begin with a public service announcement. Well, two actually. (Plus some baby photos that are sure to make you reconsider your decision to not have another one.)
- Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today. This is a big deal. Ok, so it’s a HUGE deal. Children have not forgotten that this day is coming, so if you did, don’t worry — there’s still time to pretend that you didn’t! Amazon.com: Toy Story 3 (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy): Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Ned Beatty, Michael Keaton, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Lee Unkrich: Movies & TV: Reviews, Prices & more.
- It’s Election Day! Don’t forget to use your right to vote (if for no other reason than to celebrate that those political campaign phone calls will finally be coming to an end!)
- Today I will introduce you to a rule breaking newborn.
I say “rule breaking” because in every What To Expect book I’ve ever looked in, kind-hearted publishers always seem to be trying to prepare us new mothers for what our newborn will actually look like. We are told not to expect the chubby little cherubs that are the trademark of a three-month old. Heart-tuggingly sweet faces, yes …. but just with arms and legs that are less chubby and more chicken-like. Not this little one though — she had other plans in mind. At just seven days old, meet…..
It’s ok if your heart melts at the sight of her. Mine certainly did.
In case you’re wondering, yes, those are real smiles. No gas here.
I’d like to know her secret. Are those blessed Hawaiian genetics to be credited? Did her mother add some secret ingredient to her morning oatmeal? Does the family have an “in” with the stork?? Whatever her secret …. her mama did an amazing job baking this little bun in the oven!
Congratulations to Mama L on a beautiful baby girl — I truly enjoyed meeting her. Now, go cuddle that cute little chunker :)
