Yes. Thank you, strangers, for your wise, wise wisdom.
First of all, should he be sleeping, ever? If so, should it be at night? Should I keep him in a bassinet or crib or should I let him just sleep in the yard, or the toaster? And when he sleeps, should I just let him sleep as long as he wants, or should I wake him up every fifteen minutes or so for a “baby party” where I give him hard candies and play loud music? Being a new parent is confusing, and there aren’t any books or internets about it, that’s why I have to rely on kind strangers like you.
You guys, this is actually Eric on a beach.
New York is exploding with great stuff, and so am I! (Well… we hope mine is great stuff and not just a motorized basketball.)
In the last three weeks:
I made Eric stay up too late painting the officesery this icy blue with me. The sun started staying up later too. I turned 30 and fell in love with this tissue paper. Brooklyn got pretty again. We made these blocks for the baby and finally got our Etna maps framed and hung, along with the sailboat mobile, which Eric keeps pronouncing mo-bull. I visited Eric at work. We finished baby supply shopping, mostly. I continued to get huge, continued to love my favorite coffee shop in the world, continued to love the smell of rosemary.
