Say Hello To My Little Friend

You may have noticed, dear readers, that I haven't blogged in a while. Here's the reason:



She was born February 28th. She was 9lb, 10oz at birth and 22" long - both above the 95th percentile. She's an 'A' baby. We're convinced she's a genius. Also, we pity the baby that has to go up against her in a pooping-for-distance contest.

One more for good measure:

She is beautiful! This is the post I was waiting for. Congratulations. Hope you are enjoying your long nights and wonderful days.

Picture # 1: Selah calmly contemplates the meaning of life. Also she wonders what those little pointy things are on the end of her hand and how they taste.

Picture # 2: Selah's Stare O' Death. Watch as she perfects this over the years. By her teenage years, she will be able to kill unsuspecting grownups with just a glance and a rolled eye. Either that, or she's in the midst of the distance-pooping competition in that picture.

Congratulations Jeff & Danielle - Parents. She's beautiful.

Jeff
Wow, what a beautiful baby. We are so excited for you guys. Life seems to change dramatically with one little angel in the house. I can see why you named her Saleh. She brings new meaning to stop and listen.

Jana said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! She is gorgeous. When are you going to be bringing your princess Saleh to visit. Please keep posting these cute pictures. We love the updates.

Congratulations! She looks just like you! Of course, that's coming from someone who has never seen you... Very very cool.

Jeff, I think the expression she has in picture #2 is precisely the same expression I've seen you wear sometimes when playing guitar (complete with the lolling tongue action).

So, definitely the apple of her father's eye. As well as the kumquat.

Congrats again :)

Congrats! Glad to see the photos.

I don't think she looks like you yet, but I will say that she's less ugly than other babies. That's the least cynical comment I can muster. I'm sorry. No wait, here's one: Congratulations.

She's beautiful Jeff, We wish you the best as new parents! Steve and Jane Anne

Stephanie said...

Adorable in every picture... and even more so in person:)

Congratulations, Jeff! You have a beautiful baby there. You've just taken the first step on a whole new road, and you're going to love it. Wait until she says, "I love you, Daddy," for the first time!

You did say: we pity the baby that has to go up against her in a pooping-for-distance contest

Well, I've got the champ here. Our New Baby, while sitting on Mommy's lap, with a diaper ON, was able to poop on Mommy's leg, on the couch, and on the floor. The diaper was not dirty enough to change afterwards.

Oh, the joys of parenting....
