More Tears

Hey world!  Excellent news: my rockstar friend Miss Truth gave you a gorgeous baby boy just a few short days ago.  You can thank her later.  He was born with a startlingly full head of thick black hair (thus raising jealousy in his graying 31-year-old father) and tipped the scales at a respectable 8.2 lbs.

Baby T came one week before his due date and three days before my son's due date.  

My little guy turned 2 months old yesterday and presently weighs in at 6.4 lbs when wrapped snugly in a sleep sack (ok, infant straight jacket).

Looks like we have some bulking up to do before I can confidently send the little guy into the ring with Baby T for an infant smack down.  (You look appalled, you guys don't do that??)

I got to meet the handsome little devil yesterday and I am not ashamed to tell you that I cried.  

Are you tired of hearing about my hormonal mom-tears yet?  No? Excellent. I'll press on.

So I cried for several reasons.
A) I think women may just be preprogrammed to cry when they hold newborns.  It didn't happen for me until I was a mom, but I haven't always been wired properly.   

B) Sleep deprivation?  My hubs might call bullshit on that because he pulled nighttime baby duty this weekend, but I think there are cumulative effects.

C) He's beautiful. And beautiful things make people cry.

D) For my own little boys who didn't get to bake long enough in my faulty baby oven; and for all the other rainbow babies who are too anxious to join the world.

E) For the angel babies who are too anxious to join the next world and too precious for ours.  

Incidentally, today is baby monkey's due date.

Happy due date little man. I can't tell you how glad I am that you are here and you are healthy.

Now let's get you that protein shake and hit the gym.  Baby T is toast.
