Why I Won't Be Blogging for the Foreseeable Future
I don’t post a lot of pictures, especially of my kids, but in this particular case, a picture really is worth a thousand words:) (Besides, newborns all kind of look the same, don’t they?) I’m pleased to introduce you to Baby Number Three, whom I will affectionately call Monster around the Internet. (He has a real name, honest, but you know how much I like nicknames. And Monster is the name our four-year-old suggested when we asked him what he thought we should name the baby.)
The delivery was uneventful--or at least it was after the anesthesia finally worked. (For some unknown reason, the spinal took five extra minutes to kick in. (I didn’t particularly care for those five extra minutes.)) Monster was born just after daybreak on Wednesday, January 11. He was a whopping eight pounds, seven ounces, which is almost a full pound heavier than Lady was when she was born, and he was twenty-one inches long.
Ironically enough, Monster has been the least monster-ish of all our kids. He actually sleeps sometimes, and he hardly ever cries. Still, I don’t plan to blog for the next couple of months. I need time to adapt to my new normal.
I’ll be back later this spring, probably sometime around April, and as I mentioned once before, I already have some interviews and additional rounds of “An Agent’s Inbox” in the works. Until then, I hope you all have a great first-few-months-of-2012. I’m sure we will.
