Happy New Year

i'm gonna try this again

obviously most of my failure here was for good reason but it was failure nonetheless so let's start over. one decision i have made is that if i don't have anything to actually tell you - i will be picking a topic. but not serial killers because the post with that title has elicited a few dozen chinese language responses and what with the not being able to understand kenji . .. although it does look really pretty

as for today i suppose i do have something to say. i mean there is the holiday season, this is the year i turn forty . . . oh and i had a baby ;) phineas marcus - we couldn't quite decide between the two names; we actually intend to use both of them. we'll see. he's great; he looks like a turtle. a giant 10 pound turtle. i have never seen a baby eat as much as he does. truly, it's frightening. i went on line and i was reading other people's posts about how their five to seven week old babies are eating 2-3 ounces at a sitting or 15 minutes on a breast. if i feed the boy pumped breast milk he will eat between 3 and 6 ounces at a sitting and if he is on the breast he will stay there for 20 - 30 minutes until he falls off and then half the time that will only be for a few minutes and then he will want to eat again. he's TWO WEEKS OLD!! in fact, between one week old and two weeks old he gained a pound. he gained a pound in a week. that's just not normal. but more about little baby fat face tomorrow
