Still Sort Of MIA (and there is a lot of action, trust me)

A quick moment of time, I give to you, my dear readers a quick synopsis and (more importantly) pictures of the beloved newcomer. First aside, I must warn you. Do not neglect your blog for more than one day at a time. Otherwise you may find yourself with 533 spam comments to wade through. Which also means you people don’t comment enough. Could you imagine if I got 533 real comments every two days?!?!

As you all know (or maybe not) RolyPoly made his debut a week ago today at 1:23PM. All 9 lbs. 5 ozs. He was just a roly-poly-ing along right up until the eviction.  I am sure he would have stayed in residence longer if given the choice. He came out gripping one of Funsize’s ribs in his hand, screaming about the rude interruption. Considering Funsize is half Chinese, tiny boned, stands barely 5 foot and normally 95 pounds dripping wet, I have no idea where she was storing RolyPoly or how she managed to take a breath. The proud father, MacD, was 9 lbs. 14 oz. at birth, but I am much larger than Funsize and an OB once held his fist up to my pubic bone and pronounced that I “was built to handle even a 10 lb. baby” which he retracted after MacDs birth.

My mom and Pop are here (arrived Friday) and my Dad arrives on Tuesday, so I don’t hold out much hope for a coherent post until at least Friday. Someone, in fact, called me today in a panic because I didn’t answer an email within a few hours…..that is how rare it is to find me at least not checking the internet! Here are some pics of the handsome dude to hold you over and because Sara at Red Pine Mountain demanded them and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her (or Lesley or Marlee).

Side note again: All pictures are totally, completely and shamelessly stolen from NannyGoat as I am unable to take any pictures due to the fact I must keep my hands free at all the times to FIGHT FOR BABY HOLDING TIME with Bear, Nanny, Lloyd, Fishboy, Ladybug, Butterball, Mr. Vixen and my parents. Oh. And the actual parental units of the future football star also. (also I would like to apologize publicly to Sparkles for the other night when I slammed you across the room while jumping that chair when MacD said “who wants a turn?” and I needed to get to there first)

Aside to aside. RolyPoly already lifts and holds his head up. He has been accepted at several colleges to start next week, but we are just exploring our options for now. Here is the full Flickr set of his birth day, you get to see me cry alot. These are from after his homecoming (another story to come).
