Goo Goo Dolls

The Baby is fast approaching 4 weeks of age and it just amazes me how fast she is growing. She used to be able to curl up on my massive forearms and now I need to start holding her with two arms. Everyday she becomes more aware of her surroundings and supposedly this week she will actually genuinely smile. Hopefully none of her visitors decide to "baby talk" her just to get her to smile. The Wifey and I find that extremely annoying. High pitched voices and "goo goo" are looked down upon in this household. I guess it's the snob in me but that's how its going to be.

I got to finally bottle feed the baby the other day and it didn't affect me as much as it affected the Wifey. I guess she's worried that her bond with the baby might not be as strong anymore. There was a little hesitancy to begin bottle feeding but the Baby does not discriminate on how she is being fed.

Last night the Baby wanted to have a little cry fest and typically I sleep through it all but the Wifey was having difficulty actually quelling the baby so I woke up from my golden slumber and offered to work my magic. Fifteen minutes later the baby was fast asleep. And the Wifey was a little upset. But I can't help it that I have the magic touch with women. So from now on, I will occasionally "give up" when rocking the baby to sleep and seek assistance from the Wifey, just to appease her. But deep down inside, the Baby will know who her favorite really is.

  1. Haha--I love reading the dad's perspective. It is hard for a mama to watch someone else feed THEIR baby so you just be a little sensitive! And I am soooo talking baby talk whenever I see Miss Evelyn!
