A few weeks ago, Aaron noticed Elias’ baby book sitting out and said, “There’s no reason why we can’t both work on this, is there?”
“Of course not!” was my answer. I thought it was awesome he wanted to help.
And it has been awesome. This is from my favorite page so far. It is entitled “Settling In: My First Week.”
How I Start My Day: Six miles on the track, bran cereal, coffee (black), MSNBC.
My Hungry Times: Most of them.
Crying Times: The other times.
I Smile When: Daddy tells me how many lives he saved in WWII.
I Laugh When: Mommy says to Daddy: No more lying to E-baby!
My Other Activities: Boogie dancing, skateboarding, hunting, debate team, theoretical physics
When I Sleep: No time for that.
My Bedtime Rituals: Voodoo incantations, human sacrifice, fussing and nursing.
Also good is the page entitled “My First Bath.”
Where (tub? sink?): Kitchen sink. Later baths happened in the tub like normal people.
Who Bathed Me: Mom washed. Dad dried.
My Reaction: Displeasure. Subsequent baths were well received.
