I keep trying to write something witty and funny and enlightening about the birth of our son. I have started 6 or 7 times. I got nothing.
I guess some things really are just better left unsaid... for now anyway.
So... here it is.
Birth Day: 10/02/09 (I will be starting a campaign entitled "Due Dates Are A Big Fat Lie Perpetrated By The Man On Unsuspecting Women Who Can No Longer See Their Feet")
Weight: 9 lb. 10 oz
Length: 22 inches long,
Other random facts:
- Huge shoulders (which I think they should measure and document on that little card in the baby warmer and the birth certificate... and maybe give you a t-shirt and a medal like at the end of a marathon. I wonder who I talk to about that.)
- Lovely auburnish hair... which has all fallen out (except for the back and a few long scraggly ones on the top. Basically he has a middle age man comb over.)
- Ears that are flat to his head... rather than the "elf" models that our other children were issued. (Thankfully they grow out of this.)
- Pointy chin. He will thank me for that later. There's no hiding a weak chin.
And here he is...
And so it begins.
