I'm really going to do it this year.

I signed up for this year's NaNoWriMo. I've been trying to finish this for three years now. Am I going to manage a 50,000 novel this November? Well, if OX decides to remain a sleepy dude, I just might crack 10,000 words.

As they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

newly hatched hatchling report

So far, the little man is proving to be a sleepy guy. Our usual schedule goes a little something like this:

    Change diaper
    Continue to nurse (or not)
    Swaddle (or not)
    Cuddle until passed out - noted duly by slack jaw and limp limbs

This is happening on a three-hour cycle. We can't complain.

I think Zee annoys him. When we get home from daycare and she's making a ruckus, he is not pleased with the increased level of noise and complains. It could be that he's also annoyed that I'm trying to make dinner and not sitting still for cuddling purposes.

I can only think that, a year from now, he'll be eating solid foods, and Zee would be almost three. Yeeeks.

style prediction

Serif fonts are going to make a comeback and look decidedly more modern than sans serif fonts. So there.

Ox is here!

The little guy decided to join us early and so made his appearance into the world at 8:44 a.m. on Saturday, October 1. Z-bot was there for the birth, and it didn't faze her one bit.

He's sleeping in the bucket right now, having just suffered multiple indignities at the pediatrician's. He looks almost exactly like the Zee when she was a wee one.

So far, we're going through the semi-sleepless nights. He's not too keen on the bassinet yet, but then again, neither was Zee, initially.

Welcome, small Ox. We have lots of love to share with you.
