My thoughts on father’s day

It’s entirely worth it.

She’s badass

I’ve been back at work, following my two week ‘Paternity Leave,’ for all of two days now. Many of my regular customers (@ Starbucks) have been asking me how Eleanor is doing and my response has been, “She’s doing well. We’re all doing well.”

… it wasn’t until I got home today and picked up my little girl that I realized… she’s not just well, she’s badass. She’s more aware, her muscles are getting stronger, she’s starting to make noises beyond the simple baby peeps a newborn makes, she makes eye contact… she does more than simply eat and sleep.

So tomorrow when someone asks me how my baby is doing I will respond with, “She’s badass. Thank you for asking.”

Oh Eleanor,

All that was left of your umbilical cord (e.g. a black, crusty, dried up stump) just fell off. Well okay, it fell MOST of the way off but I had to give it a little flick to get it all the way off. I didn’t want it catching on your onesie and coming off while you slept as I thought that might be a little gross. Maybe not for you, but the thought of having a dried up, umbilical stump rolling around between my body and my pajamas is enough to make me squirm.

I cleaned up some of the dried blood around your belly button but I think I read somewhere that I’m not supposed to do any intense cleaning of the interior of your belly button (right away) so I left that alone.

Hygiene aside, the big question now is HOW THE HELL DO WE KNOW IF YOU HAVE AN INNIE OR AN OUTIE?!! Right now your belly button looks nothing like mine but I’m guessing that’s because you have the luxury of still being able to see your toes. It just looks… weird. I think it wants to be an innie but it’s not quite sure how and everything I’ve read suggests that even if it were an outie now, in six months or a year it could BECOME an innie?!

There’s a lot more “wait and see” that goes into parenting than I had first imagined.

Love,
Daddy

Oh Eleanor,

I’m sure you’re probably wondering why you ended up with breast milk in your eyes at least twice today. The reality is, we’re pretty sure you have two blocked tear ducts as throughout the day, your eyes end up stuck together and filled with gunk. Don’t worry, we still think you’re lovely, however, we also think it’s in your best interest to be able to see and it’s got to be rather difficult with pasty eyes.

With that being said, we did a little research and regardless of how really, really funny it is to see mommy hovering over you with her breast inches from your eye, the word on the street is a few drops of breast milk and some eye massage will do wonders in helping to clear up the gunk and get those tear ducts working.

Love,
Daddy

Oh Eleanor,

I received a disturbing email from your grampa today. In it he mentioned you looked “a tad bow-legged” in one of your recent photos. Though I’m sure he was just trying to be helpful, I’m now in a state of panic. What if you never walk? What if it’s the diapers we put you in? What if kids in school call you Frogger?!

Yes, I know it’s perfectly normal for you to appear bow-legged because of how you were in mommy’s tummy but gosh, now I have to worry for an ENTIRE YEAR that your legs aren’t going to straighten on their own?!

Love,
Daddy

One thing I’ve learned is…

… while mommy is breastfeeding our little girl, instead of hovering and making sure Eleanor has a good latch, daddy should instead be off doing what he’s good at.

Oh Eleanor,

When I returned home from school this evening, I noticed your mommy had been reading about lopsided breasts on the internet. I hope you are forever grateful for the sacrifices she has made for you.

Love,
Daddy

Oh Eleanor,

I think you’re the most awesome kid in the world… even after you tinkle on me.
Love,
Daddy

Pretty in pink

Returned home from the hospital @ 2pm.

I have so much to write about; our birth story, my (daddy’s) first mini-breakdown 24hrs post-delivery, fears, adjusting to life at home, how we hope our pets adjust to the baby.. the list goes on.

Carey will be alone with Eleanor for the first time in less than an hour as I have to leave for school so after a quick feeding I suggested they both take a nap. Maybe I should skip class tonight?

Eleanor James Griffin

I’m only home for a few minutes to say hello to pets and get everything ready for our return but I wanted to make it official.

Eleanor James Griffin born 4:57am on April 2nd. 7lbs 9oz. She’s a tad crusty but OH SO AMAZING. I have a daughter and I’m completely dumbfounded (and in love)

An amazing birth. More on our story later. Both my ladies are rockstars. And now, back to the hospital. We’ll officially be home tomorrow.
