Today her umbilical stump fell off. To celebrate, we made a pilgrimage to Bayou St. John.
She’s definitely growing. Her loose folds of skin are filling in with baby fat. Xy has been breastfeeding, and the results can be seen daily. Funny, by sheer coincidence we watched The Life of Mammals just before the birth. Mammals are defined by having fur/hair and giving milk to their young. Did I mention she’s very hairy? She had down all over her body and even hair on her ears but it’s falling off.
In another landmark, our contractor Mike Kaplan made his final visit in this renovation today. He finished up a few odd details, and what with various paperwork and a recent inspection by our mortgage company, we are nearly ready to close the book on this chapter. To celebrate, I did my best Eliot Spitzer impression.
