This morning Lex exploded in that special way that only babies can manage...

Yeah, I could write about the beauty and wonder, which is all present and correct, but that would be far more boring. Lots of "I love watching the faces he pulls" & "when he's asleep on my chest, I'm incredibly happy."

Besides, every tells new parents about how wonderful it is being a parent, but forget about how hard it is to start. That's what I want to record - the rough start and (hopefully) how it all settles down to a bearable level of chaos.

I have no arguments - I meant it when I said I loved it.

I'm making plans in this direction myself, so I'm paying close attention.

*grin* I'm kind of writing this because I know so many people who are expecting or trying for babies. And reading about the problems that someone else is having can be a real help when similar problems crop up in your own life.

I appreciate it, for one - the decision is a big one and it's one that a lot of thought goes into. I found that most guys I asked said, "Oh, yes, you'll love it, best years of my life..." through a sort of deranged sleep-deprived rictus, and it really wasn't convincing at all.

So, hearing what it's actually like - from someone who's enjoying about it but being honest about the reality of the experience - is a balm to a troubled soul.

(Well, it would be, if my soul were troubled. Protective ointment to the potentially troubled soul, maybe. :) )
