Talk Like A Pirate Baby!

Posted: January 1st, 2009 | Author: | Comments Off

Last night, we had a lovely, quiet New Year’s Eve party at Shawn and Meg’s. There was a baby named John there who was born on Talk Like a Pirate Day!

John weighed about 12 pounds. When I held him, Shawn and I spent a moment imagining what I would look like if I had a baby approximately that size (though okay, not quite that big) INSIDE ME. Then we laughed in a combination of horror and amusement, because such a thing cannot – or should not – be physically possible for me.  I wish I had a picture of how huge he looked when I held him, so you could share in the crazy imagery.

In other sort of funny news, John has a dog at his house. I think I held John for 10 minutes or so before I had to give him to Meg because I was sneezing so much. Thank you, pregnancy, for making me such a good pet-detector, and so pleasant to have at parties!
