Instead, I wrote down some real thoughts that either traveled through my real brain or really came out of my mouth the first week after Alice was born. Before I had a baby, I didn't think a list like this would be that interesting. However, I myself was shocked at the things I thought and said during that first week. And I'd like you all to be shocked with me.
"I don't think time is moving. I'm 90% certain that we are in some weird time warp/continuum thing and it is standing still in this time and we just happened to have a baby right before time stopped and now we're stuck here. Forever."
"Whoa, that's a cute baby. Maybe they should've DNA tested to make sure she was ours before we left the hospital. No, she's probably ours."
Ya. I know--crazy. I think we use the word crazy pretty lightly nowadays but this is a time when it is not being used lightly. Crazy.
Here are a couple pictures of that cute baby, and two very tired parents.
