I’m not the kind of guy who carries around pictures of his newborn child.
But I will post ’em on the net.
I can understand that our geographically dispersed family members would want to see more pictures of our little girl, but I was surprised that friends and co-workers have requested more as well. I mean, generally speaking, I don’t want to look at other people’s baby pictures. Xy and I both share the conviction that all newborn babies look alike — which is to say rather ugly. Curiously enough we have both found our daughter to be an amazing exception to this rule. I guess it’s her goddess-like qualities that make other people want to adore her as well. Even Xy’s 6th grade classroom has been clamoring for a closer look.
So without further ado, check out this Flickr photoset: Birth & First Days of Life.
Postscript: If you’re really interested in keeping up with the pictures from our lives, you should sign up for a free Flickr account and add me as a contact.
