|« In the Movies!||Welcome Eden Adelei! »|
Day two of being parents is here, and so far we're doing well. As you can see below, Eden has quite a bit of hair. Maybe I can teach her how to twirl it properly some day.
Yesterday I was going out to bring some friends in from the waiting room and stopped by to look at Eden while she was in the nursery. There was another baby there, and his family was crowded around the window. Eden was the biggest baby born here yesterday, and the grandma looked at her called her "gorda nina," which can literally be translated "fat girl." (Actually, gorda is a term of endearment for little babies.) They didn't know I was standing there until I said, "Yeah, she's a big girl, but we sure like her." [Awkward pause.] We then had a nice short conversation and I went on to get my friends. One of the younger ladies in the party gave me a tentative congratulations as I left, and then I heard them whispering as I went down the hallway. It was pretty funny.
Okay, now what you really came here for: Pictures!
Congratulations!!! She is so beautiful and I think she looks like you Pete!!
She’s so beautiful! I don’t think she looks like Peter, she’s way too cute.
I’m so happy for you both, welcome to the world of parenting. Just remember, thirty years from now she won’t remember your phone number.
The first thing I noticed about her was her chubbiness, and I commented to Dave how cute she was, and how much she reminded me of my Hannah, who was by far the chubbiest newborn I had. she is now 35 pounds wet at 5, and saying that she has 2% body fat would be generous. Funny how that happens. I look forward to lots more pics…
congrats guys. she’s so cute.
