Well we’re back in the apartment now with our new baby boy – Johnathan. He’s pretty darn cute. He’s started to learn how to really cry – something that he didn’t do so well at at first.
I’ve discovered that watching too many episodes of House makes for parental paranoia. Examples follow:
Johnathan twitches in his sleep. Neurological disorder.
Johnathan has skin irritation. Must be lupus.
Johnathan has gas. Some kind of lymphoma.
Slight yellowing of the skin. Jaundice caused by some kind of spore which leads to liver failure.
Ok, I’m not really this bad, but I do find myself jumping at every cough and sneeze. I know it’s a very ‘new parent’ thing to do, so I try to be cool about it – only just peeking a little instead of getting out of bed completely. but I still peek at every grunt and sniff.
So here’s to parenthood and it’s accompanying whatever.
