You know you’re in trouble when “la bamba” makes you cry

And it did that to me today, in the car, on my way to fed-ex to send off the authenticated DNA results.

Because when the Boy was doing his most excellent imitation of a howler monkey on speed, we would try to distract him with this maraca. Shaking it, rattling it – singing la bamba so off-key that I’m surprised he stopped crying…

More Maraca Madness

He is the most excellent, fabulous, wonderful boy ever (even when he’s howling). And when he’s not howling? He has this smile that goes from sly and mischevous to cheek stretchingly wide.

Looking at me? Not so shy smile
He lives to take baths and splash his mamas. He is far more socially at ease than either of his mamas and loves to hang with other babies. He started rolling from back to side while we were with him. He loves to check out his hands and to kick his little legs all around.

you called?

And I miss him like crazy. The only thing that made giving him back bearable was seeing how happy the nannies were to have him back and how much they loved him.

(I know what you all really want are pictures. Go to flickr for more… pictures with grown-up faces are friends only for paranoid internet privacy reasons… or because I want more people to become my flickr friends!)

    i cannot imagine what it must have been/be like to leave him there. will you be able to take another trip?

    was i right that once you met him you are not able to even imagine having a girl?
