Oh, so THAT’S what everyone was talking about when they said, “get some sleep before the baby comes.” Well, maybe if people weren’t laughing so much when they said it, I would have taken them seriously.
Isla is six weeks old today and although she is not as tiny as the day she was born, she is even more beautiful. As you can imagine, the past six weeks have been a tremendous learning experience for Patty and me. The most important thing we have learned is that we absolutely love being parents. Even with the lack of sleep, the disjointed schedules, and the fact that previously mundane activities have been transformed into massive undertakings requiring honest-to-God planning, we love the new gig.
Indie & Bear were a little nervous at first, but they have finally warmed up to the adorable li’l screamer. Also, Bear can be bribed with “ice cream.”
This past weekend we also brought Isla to her first Farmers Market where we met up some great friends. The sheer excitement of being in St. Paul, MN caused her to completely pass out. Seriously, she slept the whole time! Even while we looked at Parsnips! Parsnips!!
Now that I’m done saying “parsnips,” here’s a photo of the
pasty happy family. Um, Patty and I didn’t realize we were both wearing black until we got there. Isla is of course looking stunningly sleepy in her red cherry dress.
Man, I wish I could sleep like that.
