Suck it, Anne Geddes.



OK so here’s Alice! I’m so sorry it took me so long to get a post up. I had planned to announce her birth right away by posting a photo of her giggling in the Dutch oven, all Anne Geddes style.

Well you may or may not know that two-week old babies don’t giggle, and they don’t like being put in pots, even when you promise them a big slab of ribs afterwards.

So that first photo shoot failed miserably, and had I posted photos of a wretched newborn punching herself in the face with fists clenched in sheer terror and betrayal, I would have gotten more hate mail from that one post than the Tyler Florence post and the parrot-eating post combined. And no one is emotionally stable enough to get hate mail for their baby’s birth announcement, so I put that project on hold until she seemed old enough to enjoy sitting in a soup pot, and also old enough to understand me when I told her if she was good, she would get a beer with her ribs.

Almost ten days to a year! I think we've all missed your blogging. ;)

Welcome back! And Alice looks like a perfectly gorgeous baby - maybe she'll grow up to be like her mother and inherit her wicked sense of humour, heh.

Thanks Kristen! My mom pretends to eat me sometimes. I guess I am pretty yummy. Love, Alice.

Ha ha Annie, I was wondering if people would think that...

Thanks Dianne!

Kim, do you know that from experience? A BK trip gives me some ideas for some funny photos, though.

Linnommable, thanks thanks thanks!

Glad you like it, Kimberly.

She is pretty tasty, Tammy!

Thanks Hannah. Bloglines is the best, huh? Lets you be so efficient at wasting time reading blogs.

Kevin, I can't believe it's been almost a year. I'm such a jerk. Here's to another post before August 2009!

Thanks Caren! Hope to see you soon. Maybe around the holidays?

Hello Fancy! I like your name.

Casey, I will probably start calling her dumpling now. What a cute nickname!

the orange saffron aioli sounds insane. makes me wonder about adding a little adobo sauce to kick it up and then toss in some crispy fried chicken wings...
