New Year’s Eve with the new parents

We spent this New Year’s Eve getting a glimpse at
our future, which apparently will involve a lot of dishwashing and scrambling
for burp cloths. A year ago, who could have imagined that we would usher in 2005
by discussing breast ailments with Pete and Laura?

We spent this New Year’s Eve getting a glimpse at
our future, which apparently will involve a lot of dishwashing and scrambling
for burp cloths. A year ago, who could have imagined that we would usher in 2005
by discussing breast ailments with Pete and
Laura?

Laura gave birth to Jacob
Paul on December 1, five weeks before her due date. After several days in the
NICU, he emerged healthy and no doubt happy to head home. He’s got spiky hair
(that suspiciously matches my color) and curls up like a little peanut when
held.



So, we hung out and watched Dodgeball as Pete and
Laura modeled their new found parenting skills. I was mentally taking notes as
Pete changed Jacob’s diaper (see above…and no, Aleisha was not drinking beer;
I made her pose with the bottle seconds before…honest), took his temperature,
fed and burped him.



It’s hard to tell if this
is just Pete being Pete or the result of sleep deprivation. Laura seems to have
some idea.
