I love that we count a newborn's age by week, generally up to 12 weeks or about 3 months. And if you count months one, two and three, which mothers do, of course, that means 15 birthdays in just three months. What a deal!
But, you know, baby gets yummy sweet milk any time he wants, so he doesn't really need cake or gifts. And, really, after those 41 weeks of cooking this cute kid and hours of intense, painful labor to get him out of the oven and every waking and sleeping hour spent feeding, burping, changing, bouncing, soothing him - these 15 birthdays really should be special days of honoring MOM with cake and gifts. Oh, and ice cream, too. Can't forget the ice cream.
What do you think? Anyone agree with me?
Now, it's just a matter of getting baby - and daddy - to cooperate.
