I Miss Newborns (But Not Bad Enough to Have More of Them)

My son held my thumb until he fell asleep tonight as though he were a newborn. He surprised me by reaching his hand up to meet mine during a rare bedtime head-to-toe relaxation exercise.

Since The Lawyer was only two, we've used the same yoga meditation CD to help him wind down. I hope the astral background music and the narrator's hypnotic voice also ease his recurrent night terrors.

My little first-born, now big enough to play baseball wearing a real uniform on a real team with real rules and real fast pitches on a real field, gripped my thumb so tight tonight, just as he did when he arrived Feb. 15, 2001, filled with epidural fluids and a lusty spirit, naturally endowed with that amazing reflex, the Plantar grasp.

Newborns are good. 18 months and up are good. It's that 14 month period in the middle that kills me.

I disagree. Newborns are boring. All babies should be born at the age of six months

I agree with Dan on this (although I like how you can take newborns to a bar and they won't fuss much) but still got a little misty thinking about how kids age...the cuteness is so fleeting. I might need to have my child frozen or something to preserve the current cheekiness...

my wife and I have a 3 1/2 month old beautiful baby girl, Samara. It is so nice having her around. Its our first and we have been learning a lot. She is a blessing.
