Two Months!

In honor of baby John's two month birthday today, I conducted an interview with him to explore his feelings on his life so far.

Mom (M): So, Baby John, what are some of your favorite things about life these past months?

Baby John (BJ): Well, mom, I have to say that my very favorite thing is the 24/7 Dairy Queen. The food is delicious and the service is tolerable... a little slow in the middle of the night. I also love having "chit chats" with mom and dad. That usually makes me smile! I enjoy parties. As you know, between postpartum baby showers and family weddings, I've been a party animal since I was knee-high to a ladybug. I like all the attention. And sometimes the background noise of conversation puts me right to sleep. I also love reading books, singing songs, being in the swing and bath time.

M: It sounds like you are a happy guy and pretty easy to please! But certainly not everything has been sunshine and rainbows. Tell me your least favorite things about these first two months?

BJ: I have to say the long hours in between the milk buffet can cause me to become quite impatient. Sometimes it feels as if I haven't eaten for days! Though I'm assured it's usually no more than a few hours. Which I have to take your word for because no one has taken it upon himself to get me a watch. Tummy time can ruin my mood. I also abhor shopping when I'm tired. Remember that Whole Foods incident? I haven't screamed bloody murder like that in quite a while!

M: Yes, I do remember the Whole Foods incident. Which is why I now have an irrational fear of grocery stores. What are some of the things that you have learned in these two months?

BJ: I have learned so much! Let's see...I've learned that night time is mostly for sleeping, with a few snacks, of course. A boy has to eat, after all! I've learned to smile and hold my head up. I've also started "talking." I don't yet believe I'm well understood because some of your comments back to me have been absolutely preposterous. But you'll learn in time, I'm sure.

M: Thank you for granting me this interview, baby John! It has been a joy to have you in our family! We love you and can't wait to see the little person you will become!

Baby J took his first trip to the beach this past weekend. Peter's family is staying in Galveston at their timeshare there. Here are some pictures:
