No Paparazzi!

Something's wrong with our camera--it reports batteries dead the instant you put them in. This has been compounded, as a problem, by the fact that my mother's internet is out, so I can't get her photos. So we've had a shortage of pictures this week, and I'm sorry.

It's been a busy week, though. We had dinner at Brenda and Jason's on Monday, where Adam had to fight their new kitten Oliver for lapspace. Also for his bottle, though we mostly fought that battle for him. For the record, we HAVE photos of Brenda and Adam, and I'll post them as soon as I get them from them.

Tuesday we went to New Hampshire to visit the farm. This marked our second successful ring sling walk. (I really do love it, though it's still tricky to get him in.) For the record, I didn't walk across the border with the baby in a sling, pilgrimage-style--I just roamed the farm a little. Marsha made us a lovely lunch (partly as an excuse to hold the baby while everyone else was eating) and Pa finally put his paws on Adam, which he had heretofore been reluctant to do. We have photos of that, too, somewhere. Sigh.

The rest of the week has been about Christmas shopping; Mike and I took turns. I feel guilty going out, sometimes--I'm not supposed to want to leave the baby, am I? And most moms can't leave for three hours, because they're nursing. It works out really well, being able to run those errands, and of course, once Mike is back at work Adam and I will be joined at the hip (my hip, probably), but I still feel slightly like I'm doing motherhood wrong. I try not to let it worry me, though, and a cute baby will go a long way toward canceling out that concern.

Finally, for the record, Mike Sr. has chosen "Gramps" for his name, which I think is great. So we have Nana and Grandpa, and Grandma and Gramps. These names are subject to change as Adam learns to talk.

"Gramps" seems appropriate for Mike's dad somehow! :) Don't feel guilty for enjoying some alone time- I know it's hard, but don't, because it's sanity-enhancing and thus good for all! Ain't nobody happy if mama's not happy!!!! ;p
