    TO the garden the world anew ascending,
    Potent mates, daughters, sons, preluding,
    The love, the life of their bodies, meaning and being,
    Curious here behold my resurrection after slumber,
    The revolving cycles in their wide sweep having brought me again,
    Amorous, mature, all beautiful to me, all wondrous,
    My limbs and the quivering fire that ever plays through them, for
    reasons, most wondrous,
    Existing I peer and penetrate still,
    Content with the present, content with the past,
    By my side or back of me Eve following,
    Or in front, and I following her just the same.Report

      What do they call a blog-uncle? A buncle?Report

      • Avatar James K says:

        I think we should resurrect “nuncle” for that purpose.Report

        • Avatar Kazzy says:

          First off, a blog-uncle would obviously be a bluncle.

          But I’ve been using “fruncle” for friend-uncle for a while. And I see increasingly little reason to segregate blog friends and real life friends. Hell, I actually just became FB friends with one of my co-bloggers over this very topic!Report

    Coolness, congrats! And don’t be terrified. I’m confident you’ll be a fantastic father.Report

    Am I thinking about it too much/ruining the moment when the nurses’ saying, “OOOH, one of the few boys on the unit… lots of girls for him to date here today,” makes me want to scream, “HE’LL DATE WHOMEVER HE DAMN WELL PLEASES”?Report

  15. Avatar Kazzy says:

    And, of course, thanks everyone! We’re very excited and very happy and I can’t wait to teach him the torture of rooting for two terrible sports franchises while living in both teams’ enemy territory.Report

  25. Avatar Reformed Republican says:

    Congratulations! We look forward to your next blog post in 18 years when you have some free time.Report

    • Avatar Kazzy says:

      You kidding me? Zazzy is sleeping with the baby, who himself is sleeping, and I’m sequestered in the room with WiFi. I’ll be more active today than any other day of the year.

      Wait… ONE of them is crying… shit…Report

      • Avatar Will Truman says:

        As they say, enjoy it while you can. For me, the few weeks weren’t really that sapping. So much during that time is dependent on the mother, and there is so much sleep. I kind of had to wait to get involved.Report

        • Avatar Reformed Republican says:

          Yeah, joking aside, it really is not bad if you are

    Kazzy, women like to hear details. How it went, size of baby, if things went as you expected or surprised you. Not much is necessary, but a little.

    If you don’t mind, and when you have time.

    (And I think men like those details, too.)

    Mayo. I’ll take a Zazzy Kazzy with Mayo.


    • Avatar Kazzy says:

      Hey Zic,

      I’ve already said as much on the blog as Zazzy will allow me. She is much more private than I when it comes to the internet. And seeing as how the kid is half hers, I feel the need to respect this wish. Even though I think it nigh impossible for you to somehow determine who I* or my kid is based on height on weight, she drew the line there.

      I will say that he is long and lean; above average length, below average weight. My sports fan friends who are making immediate comparisons to the NFL combine based on height/weight determined he is, at best, a WR, but far more likely to be a runner or maybe a swimmer.

      He did have a cone head due to early attempts at escape but that already seems to be rounding into form. He’s not a cueball, but he could be a charter member of the Hair Club for Babies. He looks like dad… unfortunately. Though better that it be a he looking like dad than a she.Report

      • Avatar zic says:

        When my babies began getting over the cone head thing, they went through this disturbing period where they each looked like Charles Barkley.Report

        • Avatar Kazzy says:

          I understand what all of those words mean… but I’m really struggling to make sense of “little army of baby Charles Barkleys” and “disturbing”…Report

    Welcome, Mayonnaise!

    Alice was a noisy sleeper, and it took about a week for me to stop checking her breathing and thereby waking her up over and over during the night. Jason and my mother teamed up and each told me to “Leave The Baby ALONE!”

    Fun times!Report
