Siglet

Sore loser

Yes, this image is blatantly posed, which I normally abhor, but darn it, he's really cute.

And he's actually unhappy because he's hungry.

Not a lot of contrast, but this is the siglet at birth +1 or +2 days; I forget which.

One week (a boring post if you're not me)

In which Sig prattles on a little about his son and heir. You probably shouldn't bother to read this.

Picturesque

My mother-in-law took a picture of me this morning. I was wearing my Fred '08 t-shirt and Ian was in my lap, listening spellbound as I read aloud from Anne Coulter's Slander. I think the only way I could have presented a more offensive scene to liberals would be if I were somehow wearing my Army uniform with the t-shirt while carrying a concealed assault rifle.

If I get the pic, I'll be sure to post it.

"More water? More ice? A margarita?"

The nurse-midwives decide that it might be helpful for her to be able to see the baby coming out. A pair of DoD anti-satellite laser/spotlights are aimed at her unmentionables, and a giant mirror is brought out. This is not something that we had really planned on doing in our birth plan, mostly because I have seen all of the Alien movies and didn't really fancy living one out. But once they wheel it out and allow us to see the Miracle of Birth live and in full color, my response is pretty much the same as my wife's: "Ew."

My life has officially changed again.

My life has officially changed again.

Born 1210 local time on 28FEB08 at the local naval hospital, measuring 20.5" long and 7 lbs 3 oz, I present to you my son and heir, better known as Siglet but officially known as Ian Anthony.

SitRep to follow. Eventually. =)

We shall call him Shiva, Destroyer of Closet Monsters

This particular store has a whole section kind of cordoned off for the kids' books, perhaps to help keep the younger browsers from escaping custody, or maybe just to keep the creepy old guys away from the little ones. Regardless, I stalked up and down the aisles, dodging mothers with infants and tiny babies, checking out the offerings. I'm going to be buying stuff for Siglet eventually, I reasoned, so I ought to check out what's available.

...and in yesterday's ultrasound, you can clearly see my firstborn son giving us the finger. Except for redacting certain personally identifying information, this photo is not edited.

PS- By the way, we're having a son.

I think he's got my eyes.

It's easier to make things out when he/she was wiggling around, but this is the new Siglet:




Pretty cool, huh?
