Overdue Update #3: The Many Moods of Jack

Monday, April 12, 2010

I have received a lot of advice about babies lately.  By far the best two nuggets are these:

(1)  Sleep when the baby sleeps.
(2)  Remember every moment.

I'm having better luck with #2 than #1.  I am hard-wired to be Type A, and I find myself cleaning up the kitchen, doing laundry, etc., when Jack is sleeping.  That's misleading, though, because it makes it sound like I get a lot done in a day.  That is not true.  I am sitting right now at the kitchen table, surrounded by a bouncy chair with a cooing boy on one side, and our taxes on the other.  Which do you think is more fun to contemplate?  Which has a federal filing deadline of Thursday?  Hmm...

Anyway, with regard to #2 (and evident disregard for our taxes), here are a few of the precious moods of Jack that I've captured lately.  He says hello.

Really, Mom?  A photo shoot?  Right now?


I'm feeling sort of shy.


Woah!  A close up!  Okay!  Okay!


Should I show off my dance moves?


Is it a smile or is it gas?  You're not sure yet, are you?

Not done yet, huh?  Hmmph.


I'm running out of steam.  Is it naptime yet?


I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.
