On May 15th I was blessed with a new niece, Alanna Marie, 7 LBs and so beautiful! Now I’m not just saying it because she’s my niece. Remember the Cone Heads from Saturday Night Live? Not her head…it’s perfect, like a little Cabbage Patch. How about the babies that look like they’re 180 years old, all wrinkly and blotchy? Not her, Alanna’s skin looked like she was ready for an infant pageant. On top of that, the night she came home she slept for almost 5 hours straight and only cries (if you want to call it that) when she’s hungry or needs to be changed.
I do thank god she’s beautiful. What would you do if you went to see someone who just had a baby and they weren’t that cute? Remember the Seinfeld episode? Let’s face it, most newborns are not beautifully cute- they need to get to room temp for at least a week or two, and dry out after being in fluid for 9 months. We all will say our babies were beautiful the day they were born, but will we admit that we thought while we were pregnant…” OMG, Please don’t let me have an ugly baby“. When they’re born, our hormones are so screwed up, I don’t think it would really matter…what are you going to do, give it back. The elephant man had a mommy too! At this point you say it’s the beauty within that counts.
Too harsh? It’s the truth so fess up! Tell me your baby fears (and we’re not talking health or 10 fingers and toes) that would be a no brainer.
Back to Alanna- the Beautiful Baby
I’m going to let you in on a secret, I was hoping she would be a pain in the ass….just like her father…hehe. Not that I would want to cause her mom any problems (I do like her) but it’s always fun to sit and watch other people go through the pains of raising a child (Not serious pains just those that you can say been there done that). I do have plans for her to be treated like a princess, bitch her up a little…if you’ve read my post about my nephews, you’ll know that I love all my nieces and nephews and love to spoil the crap out of them. I guess I’ll have to wait til this one is at least 6 months to get her going in the right direction. UMMM yes I’m devious.
