Tales From the Crib: Week 1

1 Oct

Hello, World.  It’s me—Baby Matty.  W.T.F. was that?  One minute I’m snuggled and cradled in a warm 98.6 degrees with an open-all-night, all-you-can-eat buffet, and the next thing I know I’m being evicted into bright lights with mad scientists poking and prodding and now I have to WORK for my food.  Can you imagine that…I have to work for food—the atrocities of life.

I guess I can’t complain too much.  My mom and dad seem like pretty awesome people.  They’re good at snuggling and are taking good care of me.  I’ve had lots of visitors who are great, too.  Grandma Lisa and Grandpa Dan came to visit me in the hospital on my birthday and brought me my first teddy bear.  Grandma Henri, Grandpa Scott, and Aunt Mary came to visit me at home and brought Mommy and Daddy yummy lunch.  Lots of Mommy and Daddy’s friends have come to visit, too: Brad and Mandy came over and I did my first spit-up on Auntie Mandy.  Kathi and her daughter came to visit and brought some very delicious lasagna.

On Tuesday, I had my first visit at the pediatrician’s office.  Dr. Milligan was very nice and he even has a hypoallergenic puppy in the office (whatever that means)!  When I get a little bigger I get to play with the puppy while getting shots or if I’m sick.  I was so good at the doctor’s that we went to Panera for lunch afterwards.

On Wednesday, I had my first bathtub experience.  I didn’t really like it.  It was wet.  In protest, I peed all over the bathroom and pooped in my ducky robe.  It backfired—I had to take another bath.


Sleep: 2-4 hours at a time
Eat: Mommy has lots of food for me, but I don’t really like having to work for it…
Play: I’m good at holding my head up during tummy time.  I can also already roll from my back to my side.  The doctor said I’m really strong!
Likes: Sunshine. Car Rides. Being swaddled.  Snuggles. Helping Daddy with work.
Dislikes: Bathtime. Diaper changes. Circumcisions. Taxes.

Look! Cute pictures of me:
