It is becoming increasingly clear to me that my youngest child suffers from some sort of milk-induced insanity.
Every time I sit down to give her a bottle, she begins thrashing around, flailing her arms and legs, making horrific grunting and choking noises, and spitting milk. This causes me to remove the bottle.
At which point she becomes a complete rage monster.
So the bottle returns. And the above repeats.
After two or three iterations, she calms down and drinks happily from the bottle. When she finishes the bottle and I try a second bottle, the above repeats as though she has never taken a bottle before in her young life, let alone thirty-five seconds ago.
Please advise or commiserate.
Hard to believe but Kiddo #2 is already a month old!
(She is not yet a professional at sitting up.)
Here, by the way, are all the photos we took of Kiddo #1 each month of his first year.
Prepared for tonight’s foreign policy debate.
It took a few days longer than we thought it would, but Talia Jane Kohen joined the rest of her family at 2:15pm on October 18th. Big brother Judah was very happy to meet her … and so were Mommy and Daddy!
And yes, of course, Talia already has her own Tumblr!
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to Talia Jane Kohen, born at 2:15pm. 7 lbs, 1 oz; 20 in.
Mom and baby are doing great. More pictures coming soon.
While I’m in the hospital with my wife today, my students are taking their midterm exam.
The meanest professor or just the best prepared?
Comment of the Day
There have been a lot of strong comments already today, but when Reuters picks a date in the Baby Birthday Pool you just know that’s going to be the Comment of the Day:
Reuters replied to your photo: Thus far, October 11 is a very popular date in the…
I’m choosing to assume that it’s the entire staff of Reuters throwing their collective weight behind October 12, that they all sat down and discussed which day to pick, “Newsroom”-style.
Incidentally, this is one of those things I absolutely love about using Tumblr as my blogging platform.
Thus far, October 11 is a very popular date in the baby-arrival pool.
Have a guess? Let me know.
