The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.
but, some of the bloom has come off the normal sleeping rose, too, with more-than-occasional wake ups at 2:00am and then a very “helpful” young girl hoping to help with the 5 a.m. feeding.
thank you sweetie, but we’ve got this. really.
i neglected to mention it at the time, but at our last check-up mommy pointed out to our pediatrician that the mighty quinn’s head was still a little mis-shapen from delivery. the doctor said that she was sure there wasn’t anything wrong, but we should schedule an appointment at Children’s National Medical Center here in D.C. just to be sure.
i didn’t realize how nervous i was, until i got there. then i realized the only time i’ve every really seen a children’s hospital — with the aggressively saturated colors, and overly playful decorations — was when watching a horrible (or miraculous) medical wonder story on extreme makeover home edition.
as a result, i’ve decided that i’m not a big fan.
thankfully, it turns out that everything is perfectly fine. the mighty quinn’s head is well within the medical definition of normal for this point in his life, and there was no evidence of brain or cranial problem.
no matter what you think you’ve done wrong, chances are (a) people aren’t paying close enough attention to have noticed, and (b) you are being way too self important if you think they care.
that said, holy crap it’s been a long time since i’ve updated this blogthing.
seven weeks. 1,689 photos. 45 minutes of video. 9 extra lbs of baby. 441 diapers. but, i think we are starting to come through the other side of the madness.
the mighty quinn is getting up to 6 hours of sleep at a shot, and — as we have more time for her — sparklet’s terrible twos are receding just a little bit. kinda. sorta.
so, no apologies for the lack of posting because you probably didn’t notice, and — if you did — i just wrote (and backdated) 76 posts for posterity (and you) in the space of 18 hours.
that was penance enough.
