On E-day we met Erik Shepherd, newest addition to the James Gang. Via text Creating Wordlenik caught up with Mr. James to see how things were going. This is what he had to say:
Wow, I've been here 26 days now! Where did the time go? For the most part it's been great. Bath's are the best, so warm and relaxing, getting the spit and drool off me. And, waking the parents up every 1-2 hours is amusing.
Speaking of amusing, everything I do makes people laugh. Cross eyes, stretch, coo, spit up--doesn't matter. They go into hysterics. Except at 2 am. I haven't found anything they find amusing at 2 am, but not giving up. Sleeping is so overrated. I mean, what's this deal with bedtime? Bedtime is when I say it is.
So, are there any negatives? Gas, for sure. Having anything clipped, tongue or otherwise. The most frustrating thing is when I do get to sleep, my passy falls out of my mouth and wakes me up. Why does it do that when it knows I HATE that!
Looking forward to more adventures as life continues. Heard about a few cool things I'm excited to try: solid food, juice, church nursery, crawling, being lead guitarist in a rock band,watching the original Star Wars Trilogy.
Let me just say, Michael and Mandy make terrific parents, but Grandparents Rock! They love to hold you and talk to you all the time, and I heard they can't tell you No. How awesome is that?
Advice for those younger? Well, expect some frustration--even anger--with mom or dad when they aren't acting the way you prefer. So, scream louder---it makes them move faster!
