Exercising the Nana Prerogative: the Baby Pics

Some holiday pics of our new little girl. Above, she's sleeping in her dad's arms and, bottom left, on her mom's lap. On the right, her Aunt Rhiannon finally gets up the nerve to hold her, being convinced that breakage isn't imminent -- and she does very well!

Below, more sleeping (the girl's a master, really!) and, on the right, she's having a conversation with her Uncle Zach, whom she's just met and, on the bottom, hanging out on mom's lap again.


In case you're wondering why her mom never gets into these shots, it's because when mom and Nola get together, they're usually doing something that Facebook apparently dubs obscene: breastfeeding. While we don't think that way here, I do try to respect privacy. . .

  10. She is adorable. I love the little hat. And as a former lactation consultant and mother, I would like to bash Facebook over the head. What is wrong with people? I am very angry about this. Thanks for lettting me vent

  11. Julianne: Thanks! And yes, isn't that whole Facebook goofiness frustrating -- can't believe this can be an issue!
    Didn't know you had done lactation consulting -- that (and mothering, for that matter) is very important work.

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
