nothing but the tooth

Monday, dec. 28, 2009   |   8 comments

Desi is five months old today! And to celebrate, he spent the past week screaming and squeezing out real human tears and generally not sleeping at all. Meanwhile I lay on his floor in a semi consciousness, my back seizing as I augmented the batteries in his swing with vigorous pushings the likes of which usually put him to sleep but which this week only managed to reduce him to the soft growl stage.

And then lo! This very evening! Out pops a sharp little tooth, his very first one!

Ah. Well then. That makes perfect sense, then. Grow on!

    Doesn’t sound like anything a little bourbon wouldn’t cure pronto, for you or him. Poor kiddo!

    Hi Evany!!

    How are you?! Remember me from Oxford Poly days? Nikola Whyte – Diamond – sent me this link – I can’t bloody believe it’s you!

    Congratulations on baby Desmond – how cute he looks! Hope motherhood is suiting you? I have two little boys now Harry – 4 and Harvey 2. Madness but absolutely fab.

    In case this doesn’t get through, drop me a line to confirm you’ve got it and I’ll write more…

    Wow good to know you are still around!

    I keep meaning to pass along a nickname: Des-Mo from the Get-Go. Has a certain ring, no?
