[full of it]

oh my.

i hang my head in shame.  i’m embarrassingly neglectful.  so neglectful, in fact, that i will have to update you via bullet point.  oh, for shame, susie, for shame.

  • felix is four months old.  four months!!  he’s so big.  ok ok, he’s actually a pretty average four month old.  he was born big, and for a bit stayed on the big side of growth charts, but he’s starting to even out.  milestone-wise, he’s mostly ahead of the game (i swore i wouldn’t be a braggy mom.  IMPOSSIBLE.)  he started babbling a little bit ago (SOCUTE), last week he started rolling, a couple weeks ago he started grabbing at things and trying REAL hard to put them in his mouth, sometimes with success.  his first grab was an iphone – how appropriate.  little technophile.  my favorite is when he gets so uncontrollably excited – his whole little faces scrunches up with glee and he pulls himself into a little ball, then explodes and kicks furiously.
  • still about felix, but i thought it was time for a bullet.  sleep.  ugh.  he’s much easier to put down to nap, usually i can just lay next to him and close my eyes and he follows suit.  nighttime, however.  we get a decent stretch at first, 3-4 hours, but then he tends to cluster feed.  fortunately i can latch him on and fall back to sleep.  (in high-pitched mocking-you voice) “ooh, my three week old baby sleeps for seven hours”  first, LIAR.  second, FUCK YOURSELF, WILL YOU.
  • the day has come – breast pads are out of my life.  i HATE them.  i hate maintenance.  brushing teeth, washing face.  what time suckers.  getting dressed is bad enough, and breast pads added an extra step.  but, finally, if i’m wearing a bra that’s tight enough (and i tend to go for spandex sports-type nursing bras), i don’t leak.  hurray!
  • oh hey, we’re in austin!  i’ll spare you the comedy of errors that was our move-in process – what matters is that we made it in one piece.  our place is still a mess, but hey.  what can you do?  oh, i guess i could clean it.  whatever.
  • i have a million-dollar idea.
  • my family is the best.
  • we bought a new car.  a barely used acura rdx.  it’s pretty awesome.
  • i have recently acquired a taste for fried eggs.  what is wrong with me??!

i have loads of pictures and little videos of felix being cute.  later today.
