we had a kid

Let's see, the last time I blogged was in July? That sounds about right considering I was probably still puking up my organs around then. I spent the next 4 months trying to catch up from lost time during my morning sickness phase... I'm actually still trying to catch up. Just when I start thinking about how lame I am for falling so behind in life I say to myself "Chill self, you just made a kid." If that doesn't buy me some understanding what will?

 [9 months pregnant and ready for GO time]

So anyway, seeing that our offspring is now a month old I thought I better introduce her to the few (if any) stragglers that stuck around to see if we would ever revisit our so called virtual diary. I ought to condemn this blog and shut it down permanently due to abandonment but seeing that it's the new year and all (or so they tell me, I refuse to consent to a new year until I'm good and ready!) I figured I should give the blog the old 1, 2 routine... you know blog once and then quit because I'm "2" busy. You're right, maybe I shouldn't try to write jokes when it's 3:30 in the morning. Shall I show off the goods instead?

This is Dempsey Bradley Crosby. She was born  December 11th 2011 at 3:57am via c-section. She was 7lbs - 4oz and 19 inches long w/ BLUE eyes (one point for me, finally). There's a birth story to tell but who wants to re-live being hacked open like a scene out of SAW IV or something? There's also a story about how Dempsey came to be her name instead of Golden but it's painfully long and HELLO it's now 4am.  I'll just save that one for Bret to tell. Her middle name is Bradley after my twin (miss your face twin!). I also call her Cookie because she was nameless throughout our entire 5 day stay at the hospital and you would be shockingly surprised at how much it bothers people when you don't name a baby right away. I nicknamed her Cookie until we could... agree on a more permanent name, by then Cookie had already stuck because she's so sweet and yummy.

She had some health complications after she was born (another long story I will save for the dad to explain since he was actually coherent for it all) but she recovered quickly and remains to be the perfect baby. There's a lot of life adjustments being made around our house and I'm still getting used to having this perfect little thing to look at and care for each day. I'm dreading the day she follows in the footsteps of her notorious disastrous sister. For now she is still a tiny baby doll and a wee bit of a distraction. It's no wonder I'm more than two months behind in work. Ouch! Actually, I think I shall go snuggle her some more now... neener neener!

[ok now I'm just rubbing it in... can you blame me? I LOVE Cookies!]

You're pretty hilarious even at 3:30 am. Love the pictures. I hate to be greedy, but I need more. She is a doll.
