Is it possible to spoil a fetus?

If so, I think that just happened.

This weekend we had a wonderful baby shower (thanks to Rachel, Dave, and of course mom!). We were really overwhelmed with the number of people that showed up to celebrate the boy, especially since they barely know him. He’s sort of a quiet homebody. But there were a houseful of happy people, many of whom brought gifts for the boy. Alexander now has a larger wardrobe than his mother and father combined, plus enough toys and books to ensure a lifetime struggle with ADD.

We also received a Newborn Soothing Center (thanks, Brad and Ella!). This thing is pretty sweeeeet. If the label on the box is to be believed, this machine will practically raise the kid itself. Simply insert screaming baby, set center to “sooth”, and walk away. When you hear the ‘ding’ of a bell, your baby is done! Gently remove your freshly soothed baby and enjoy.

If we can find an Adult Soothing Center, our whole family will be in good shape.

Well, I’d better get started on thank-you cards. Somehow I think Miss Manners would frown upon posting a big “THANK YOU TO ALL” on the blog and calling that good. Please allow 6-12 weeks for shipping and handling.
