If it's one thing that babies can do, it's scrape life down to the bare essentials (eating, sleeping, pooping). Given the ridiculous amount of time that we spend on these essentials, I have recently been impressed with the importance of maintaining our sense of humor. So to that end, I want to record a couple of very funny moments. At least, I thought they were hysterical. We'll see if all you folks operating on more than 3 consecutive hours of sleep have the same opinion.
Several nights ago, Scott and I were in the living room and a show about adoption was on TV. This couple was trying to adopt an 18-month-old Indian boy who had had a trachaeotomy. Because of the trach, he couldn't talk or make noises. It was the weirdest thing to watch him cry pitifully without making a sound. Scott was on the computer and hadn't been watching, so I said, "Hey look, that boy has a trach, so he doesn't make any noise when he cries!" Without missing a SECOND, Scott looks up and says, "How much does that cost?"
And then last night we were entertaining Lily away from fussiness, and started thinking and talking about how tiny her little organs must be. This led us to contemplate her tiny little girl organs, and the fact that she already has all her eggs. And then we made the jump to thinking about Lily having babies. Scott told her very seriously that she was WAY too young to have babies, that she was simply not mature enough. And it was just so funny, sitting there thinking of Lily, who can't take care of herself enough to even know why she's crying half the time, taking care of her own fussy babies. Baby Lily and her teensy little babies, just sitting there crying together.
