Nine Months


As of today, Inara's officially been out of the womb longer than she was in it.

She's beautiful.

Well now you're stuck with her. Nine months is the point when you can't take babies back to the store.

I love her chubby little cheeks!

She is just too damn beautiful. Don't let her go.

Warranty's over, and now the manual loses all relevance. Hope you're ready for the big show, because here it comes!

She's gorgeous! Bio has changed. No hope in changing it back? If at all possible, Inara would like mommy and daddy together. I am getting divorced now, and I have to say, I am glad we stayed together until our daughter was 19, she is too. Any hope?

Boy are you doing fatherhood right. You don't seem to miss a second, and that's great because it's not a cliche - it really does go that fast. Mine's 12 and I remember 9 months like it was yesterday.

Love how she smiles for pictures. Is she always this glowy and happy?

The both of you are stupid for breaking up. If her face doesn't prove that you're worth something as a couple...

Oh Chez... You changed your profile. Feels like another hard punch to the gut.

From someone who's never been shy about saying "wow, that's a baby!" I must say that Inara is striking. And I say that as the father of two (empirically, of course, beautiful children.

As Aaron said...the big show starts.

She is bound to soon start developing by leaps and bounds. Bigger leaps and bounds. My girl Isa, way back, started talking seriously at 12 months and had gone past (I figure) 1000 words by 14 months. She could have said "polysyllabic".

Oh, on an other subject, your personal life, remember: "free advice is worth every penny". ;)

P.s., do you listen to Sarah Slean any? Much info on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarah_Slean. "Night Bugs" was her breakout cd, I believe.

Barbara, I have to disagree. As someone whose parents stayed together because of her and who only finally, mercifully divorced last year, I want you to be aware that kids not only know that their parents cannot get along, but that they also take on the responsibility for it themselves. I spent my 20s in therapy. I hope your daughter doesn't have to do the same. I'm not saying she will--perhaps you and your husband handled it better than my parents did--but children are not stupid. They just keep their mouths shut about it.

You know the song, Mary Jane, by The Vulgar Boatmen? I've had that song stuck in my head since you put this picture up...not the whole song, just the first line.

You earwormmed me, dammit.
