When I have more than one kid, will I have time to put ridiculous things on them. Take photos. And post them on the Internet?
We’re rollin’ for real here in the Krieger house. Start like this… Throw that head back… And end like this! Yay! Good job, David! He goes the other way, too. And mama was there to see it all.
David turns 14 weeks old today. And I, I am reentering the land of the living. Thanks, it’s great to be back. You see, for the past week or so David has been acting like a big ole baby. Turns out his bouts of 10-hour sleep were a tease. A ruse! Just as I started
Usually when David wakes up in the morning, he’s all smiles. He stretches and wiggles and waves. But mostly he just smiles and smiles. It’s easily his favorite part of the day. Usually. This particular morning he acted more like he had a hangover. I pulled him into bed with me and he snoozed HARD
Since babies sleep on their backs these days, doctors recommend they have some “tummy time” every day. The point is for them to strengthen their back and neck muscles, which used to happen when babies were squirming before and after sleeping. David isn’t sure what he thinks of tummy time. Sometimes he loves it and
Does anyone else think he looks like he’s only pretending to sleep in this photo? He might have been. He woke up when the shutter clicked. Faker! Speaking of sleep, Tom and I had the following conversation at 5am. Amanda: Tom! Guess what, this is the first time David’s woken up since 11, he slept
Good morning. Every morning, before he does anything else, David does his morning stretches. I undo his swaddle. He arches his back. And raises his arms. Feels so goooood! Ok, mommy, now I’m ready to start the day.
My mother in law told me about this poem, and I love it. Too often I find myself wishing the newborn phase away (I want to interact with this kid, yo!) so I appreciate reminders that this is a quick and precious phase, the laundry can wait (not that the house has ever been that
Yesterday Tom tried to weigh David in a scale at the grocery store. Everyone in the produce department was laughing, including me. I watched the whole thing from behind a display of pears. (Unfortunately it didn’t work. He didn’t fit in the scale. From my method of weighing myself, and then weighing myself holding David,
We’ll probably forget a lot of David’s “firsts”. Things like first earthquake, first hurricane sort of fade as distant memories, don’t they? But some firsts stick. Today marked the best day of David’s life thus far — his very first Hokie game day. Virginia Tech – 66, Appalachian State – 13 And what a game
Having a newborn in the mix makes things hectic, sure, but things have been extra-hectic around the 804 in the first two weeks of David’s life. August 23 – We don’t have earthquakes in Virginia. I equate earthquakes with volcanoes, they’re other people’s problems. But 5 days after David’s birth, we had a 5.8 earthquake
This scene can only mean one thing… There’s a baby in the house! Welcome to the family David Andrew Krieger. Our son David was born Tuesday, August 16 at 6:39pm. He weighed 7lbs 14oz and was 20 inches long. (By the way, how do moms remember all that info for years? I already forget which
