Day 3 of Smudge's Reign



Smudge Day 3

I decided to grab and post this photo while Cuppa is napping. I just want one, after all, but once Cuppa rises, she'll probably find it difficult to stop at a half dozen, and this one might be one of them. As you can see, little Smudge has quite a head of hair — which isn't at all fair if you ask me. I could use some of those hairs myself. In fact, I have been somewhat mortified to see in these recent pictures how thin my hair is even on the sides. I hadn't realized that, and I'm not happy about it.

Back to the important one, however: all she does is sleep while we're there, no matter who is holding her — usually grandma. She makes cute little faces when she passes gas ... or ahem whatever. She'll probably come home tomorrow, so for Mom and Dad's sake let's hope the passivity continues for a while longer.

We'll all be glad to have Smudge home, however, because for whatever reason, hospitals make me tired ... and Cuppa too apparently. While it's much better now than sitting in a sick room, it still tends to drain my energy somewhat. All of the adults should be happier and more comfortable once they get home, especially Maw who surely will sleep better when she's out of the hubbub of the maternity ward. Hopefully, Smudge will be happy at home too. I sure hope so because she'll be stuck there for a long time.

Update: I just checked Cuppa's camera and couldn't resist posting this photo too.

I promise I'm not being ingratiating. That is a BEAUTIFUL baby.

And I so agree with you about hospitals - exhausting. Don't fret about the hair, AC - you're a guy and you've got the nice facial hair thing going. Try being a 60'ish female and forlornly examining the hair-restoration aisle at the corner drug store.

My oldest was born with a head full of hair like that. She still has really thick hair.

She's beautiful. Clearly you are a smitten Grandpa. :-)
