An hour in the life of Bellinha

Please, everyone, drop mom a note and tell her how grateful we all are that Lil' Genghis is in good hands. Here's an excerpt from the little lady's life that dad sampled in lieu of mom, who is either much to proud, sweet or tired to complain adequately:

12:30 p.m.: Wet diaper. Change.
12:35 p.m.: Crying. Find new new diaper is now wet.
12:45 p.m.: Try to put in bed (following a two-hour feeding). Cries begin soon.
12:50 p.m.: Looking for a bottle. None mixed. While holding baby, turn on bottle warmer, mix two kinds of milk in three bottles, put two in fridge and one in warmer, all while trying to comfort baby.
12:57 p.m.: Bottle out of warmer and into baby.
1:20 p.m.: Time for lunch?
1:21 p.m.: Crying.
1:22 p.m.: Find new new diaper is filled, look for new new new diaper.
1:29 p.m.: Put baby back to bed, comfortably bundled and in a new outfit. Find out she now has the hiccups (common).
1:30 p.m.: Time for a hat.

Three cheers for mom! Hip! Hip! Horray!

  • mom, you rock. I love you and I respect you more each and every day. (Even as you defend your eldest brother.) I'm so glad we share our lives, a beautiful girl and two wonderful dogs together. EAVPS.

  • ...now imagine having a new baby almost every year, for 10, 20 years, how our grandparents used to... O.o

  • Queridos Sú, Mike e vovó Biziza!
    Adorei as fotos de Bellinha. Ela é muito lindinha e fofa. Fiquei com vontade de apertar as bochechas dela. Sú, você caprichou!!! Parabéns ao papai também! Gostei de ver vovó Biziza sentada na poltrona com ela no colo. Fiquei com inveja e o jeito é esperar o fim de ano para curtir também a Bellinha.
    Beijos, saúde e amor da Tia Aldinha.

  • "all while trying to comfort baby"

    Newbie!!

    Just wait a couple of months until you just let her cry (it tires the little bugger out, you know) while you get a bottle ready. Go into her room and give her the bottle to drink while you're changing the diaper (Multitasking, doncha know). Then put her to bed mumbling that you can't wait until you're 80 and she has to change your diaper and bring you liquified food.

    That's how a vetern dad does it. ;)

  • Suze and Mike,
    Your blog for Isabella is also helping prepare us for the crazy days ahead as we wait for Baby Savannah... it sounds like you're making it though... just like I know you would.
