Cue Elton*

Social buttefly that she is, Natalie already has many baby friends. (And MANY more that we can't link to 'cause their parents don't have blogs! Fix that already, willya?) She's met so many babies that are older and or bigger than she, and it's always fun to see what's in store for us in the coming months and years. (Laughing! Rolling! Sitting up! Putting in the binky all by herself! We can't wait...)

Today, though, things were a bit different. We took Natalie to meet our friends' new baby today. Ava was born on Friday and made quite an entrance, all 9 lbs. 4 oz. of her! The tables were turned and WE had the older baby showing off all the big baby tricks. (Smiling! Babbling! Standing in our laps! And shrieking, unfortunately.) We also got to pay back some karmic debts by bringing them food and running a couple of errands for them.

Tomorrow, we head off to the beach for a couple of days with my mom, and after that, we're off to Michigan to meet Cait's family and let Natalie get to meet another cool baby friend. Our Internet access will be spotty for at least the next week, so apologies in advance for minimal posting.**

*The first person to correctly identify the allusion in the title will win a prize, AddProb style. Loyal readers will know that means: yum!
**As if we'd been posting a lot lately! Ha! But I am indeed working on questions for the interviewees. Consider it my vacation assignment.

  • Sadly, the only Elton song that comes to mind is "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," and I'm pretty sure that's wrong. Sigh.

  • Circle of Life?

    Tiny Dancer, True Love, and I'm Still Standing also came to mind, but Gus says we're going with Circle of Life

  • I was going to guess "Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting," but maybe Natalie hasn't really shown her martial arts side yet.

  • Clearly you are writing about Bennie & The Jetts! right???
    or um...Blue Eyes?

  • I kept singing a Beatles Song in my head whilst reading this post:

    "I get by with a little help from my friends."

    And a big thank you for the LOVELY prezzie that arrived from Nat yesterday!

  • Youre a butterfly, and butterflies are free to fly, fly away!
    All I can think of is Someone saved my life tonite and that doesnt seem right but, you did call her a social butterfly!

    And goodness, that baby looks like shes starving! You must lactating miracle grow or something!

  • How appropriate that one of Natalie's beby friends should be the winner. Sadly for Gus, he just started solids, so he'll have to get his prize second hand. But the Moms will enjoy! Yup, Circle of Life. Though I enjoy all the rest of your suggestions!

  • "blessed"? i don't know if that's the name of it, but i was listening to it on the subway and started tearing up when i realized that it was written for a child... so beautiful.
