The Sweetest Thing


Okay, so one more.

Regular posts resume tomorrow -- for now though, I just can't tear my eyes away from her.

As it should be. And don't babies just smell so good? Congrats.

Take your time, this is kinda special. We'll still be here, the world can wait.

What if this becomes the new 'regular'? I doubt anyone would object.

sparksinner said...

so far so good, she seems to be taking more after mom...

I don't blame you. the first week or two were kind of a daze. And not just due to less sleep. It's a game changer, this new baby business.

So CUTE.

I do see a bit of Morena in her!

HG said...

She's just delicious, Chez. Congratulations to you and Jayne.

Of course you can't tear your eyes away - she's deliriously beautiful! Have you resisted going all NOM NOM NOM on those rosy cheeks yet? 'Cause if you have, you're a stronger individual than I! What's amazing about newborns is how they *feel* - like their skin is made from clouds, and they're not fully "matter" yet. So incredible.

We'll forgive you for the lapse in posts - my God, you've got better things to do. Congratulations to you and Jayne. Enjoy this intoxication.

It's a Smurf.

Suzy said...

shouldn't she get a job already? lazy bum...

Jayne said...

"Votar," back off. This one you can't make fun of. OK???

Nobody in their right mind would hold against you the altogether justified feelings you are sharing with everybody here.

Congratulations!

Looks like she might be a muslim with that head scarf thing.

WOW!

Fantastic!

Congratulations!

Dianne said...

She is exquisite. Congratulations.

She is absolutely gorgeous!

Makes me want to have one of my own... or maybe not.

Anyway, take your time rejoicing with your new baby. Remember, every stage of her life will pass by really quickly so you better be watching --and enjoying!

You better get a stick to beat back the boys. My son is only 18 mos and he pointed at her picture on my screen and smiled. ;)

Chez I would think by now (2 days) you would have crayons and a pad out for her!

Deacon Blue said...

Ok, Chez...I know what you're feeling. Just remember: Only have the ONE girl...and always tell her she's your absolute number one favorite GIRL ever. That way, you can be head over heels for her AND Jayne, and neither gets short shrift. At least until Inara becomes an adult. But by then she's getting ready to break your heart by considering getting married one day, so at that point, you can slight her a tiny bit by relegating her to second-place adult woman.

Oh, wait. I just remembered that you have another girl already. Shit, you're emotionally and karmically screwed then.

Amy said...

Of course you don't. She is just beautiful.

good thing she looks like mom, eh?

:P

SherryB said...

Get used to it... Daddy's going to be wrapped around Inara's tiny little pinky finger for the rest of his life. As he should be.

And oh, I remember those pouty little infant lips. She is so precious. Almost makes me want to have another one. Almost. ;)

denesteak said...

baby Inara!! keep posting them!

winged unicorn said...

she is beautiful.

i remember my own...she's the size of my younger two girls at birth.
it was so LONELY inside after they came out, no more movement, that constant awareness of another [alien] life form inside, needing me. so quiet.

i think a lot of postpartum depression is from that lonely after the babe comes out. empty.
one of the reasons i breastfed for so many years, it was a way of getting that closeness again.

god, she's beautiful.

get rest. lots of rest. relish it. file it away for the future, for the days you will want to kill because before you know it she'll be a teenager doing the same stuff you did...

i am so happy for the three of you.

who doesn't believe in miracles?

so when can we start corrupting her? all the teachings of chobot brand mischef and mayhem! Mine is well on his way, now he needs an accomplice.


Congrats fam.
