Outstanting grumpiness — Dad Declan who submitted the photo, says his daughter (now 13) has honed her abillity to make even meaner faces for the benefit of her parents.
(Thanks, Declan! Declan’s quite the shutterbug and you can catch his photos and other musings on his blog.)
Born and bred a Californian — still, it looks like it will take more than 3 1/2 months to get acclimated to the water. (Hint: move back to Southern CA).
(Thanks, Alison, and congrats on your little girl!)
Her face conveys that she is a bit nonplussed about her going-home outfit… but just wait until she gets home and sees the nursery! Dad Mike (described by his brother as a “big ol’ nerd”) not only picked out the outfit (shocker) but suggested they go old school retro in baby room decor… Behold: 8bit NES-themed baby room complete with Duck Hunt, Mario Bros, and Toadstool characters.
My only thought is WOW — there is a very tolerant and cool wife behind this enthusiastic Dad. I hear she’s also the artist behind all the cool artwork (it’s not like Pottery Barn carries “chic-geek” — not just yet.)
Can’t resist posting some photos of the room. True awesomeness:
(Thanks to Justin V. for the photos!)
Could this pout BEE any cuter??
(Thanks, Lil’ Debbie! Debbie’s rockstar newborn has been featured on babyblooze once before.)
At Day One I was already demonstrating a distrust for my older brother. This may have been the first – but definitely not the last – time he made me cry.
[Editor's note: Thanks, Dad, for finding this gem in "the archives." I also find it quite comforting to know where I get my sense of humor.]
