Infrequent blogger

I don't really want to become one of *those* bloggers, you know the kind that only post once every two months? There are gaps in my life that you won't ever know now, and I'm sorry about that.

Truth be told you haven't missed much. The last month or so I've just been whining about being 8-9 months prego and trying to scrounge up enough sympathy from Russell and the kids so I could have excuses to lay around at night and watch tv and eat the rest of my cadbury mini-eggs (I only have about 10 left, sadly, but they are still selling them on ebay if I feel the urge).

But now that the babe has emerged into this world, I must introduce him.




Baby Dylan
He is a sweet boy born on April 17. He was 6 lbs 10 oz, but at the rate he's eating he should be a few pounds more by now. It's kind of interesting what his body decided to focus on development-wise in the womb. It was important to his genetic code to grow a head full of muppet hair, yet his code didn't worry that it forgot to send hair to the eyes for lashes and brows. And why not pad the bum a little bit if there's time during those 9 months? But hey- don't get me wrong; I'm not dissing the cute boy. His body rocks and so does mine for housing him. His brows can grow out here in the open air just fine. And I've got eyes- I just need to take a look at the male family tree and realize a tush is not in the future for this little guy.


I'm shielding baby D from the unrelenting paparazzi that are always hounding my family and me. Leave us alone! I know we're adorable and super-exciting, but you gotta know when to let kids be kids.

Isn't it great that we all can fit on a bed and watch shows on the laptop? It's Kipper the Dog. I have never seen that show before, but it seemed to please. That, or the mesmerizing glow of any children's brainless programming.

So that is our happy news. Spring has sprung and so has my baby.

What is your obsession with booties?? The kid just hatched-there will be plenty of time for implants and false eyelashes in about 20 years. And if he elects for them at that point, you got bigger things to worry about....
As for the Family Bed, awesome. It worked for Michael Jackson and it could work for you. Except I didn't see enough room for Russell. Good thing he's got his own bed elsewhere.

Congratulations! He is a handsome little guy. Can't wait for the paparazzi to dwindle down so you can bring him out for all of us to see. ;)
Hope you are getting some sleep in the meantime.

Oh how cute!! Spring babies are the best. I was actually getting really worried about your lack of blogging, but now I feel better :)

What a cutie pie! LOVE his hair!!! All my babies had and still have too many eyebrows, they say it's their family curse. So, be glad that he's bald their for awhile anyway. I'm so glad all went well. You look great as always and your kids are growing so fast. Enjoy your time away from the paparazzi and good luck!

Maria said...

Yay! Congrats, he's a cutie. Five kids?! You are amazing!

glad to see the little one at last - no wonder the paparazzi have descended!!!

LC said...

Finally! A post!
I'm dying to hold Dylan and stroke all that hair.
B and A have discovered Kipper and think it's hilarious?...I don't get it but whatever...fun with Netflix.

Sher said...

Congrats again. He is very handsome and I'm looking forward to visiting with you in person for at least a minute or two and getting to hold him.

Yay! Congrats Erin! I actually had no idea you had him until I just read this post! {I guess it would help if i had been to church in the last few weeks, or if I was still a fb member... but since neither of those are the case, this is BRAND new news to me!} I'm happy that you are both home and doing well! :) You are quite the great little mama and I'm glad that you are back to posting too! You definitely make me smile when I read what you've got to say!

Jenny, Arturo, y Dalia said...

Cute little nipper! Here it is July, but I suppose I can still find Russell and congratulate him, too.

If you would like to blog more consistently, try synchronizing your updates with something else you do on a monthly or weekly or whatever-ly basis. Update it every Fast Sunday, or every payday, or whenever you buy a new bag of Cadbury eggs. Make it a reward for paying the water bill.
