I updated my last post—Sol has had a very welcome uptick in weight in the past few days. We have another weigh-in next week and are hoping to see more of a normal growth curve. He’s spending more time awake and alert—even beginning to smile—but I snapped this pic while he was napping. (He’s got a bit of a skin rash, but that’s very normal for new babies.)

    Awww. He’s adorable. (And I confess a small, irrational pleasure at seeing other people’s babies with temporarily awful skin.)

      Isn’t it weird that people talk about babies’ skin as if it’s the epitome of perfection? I mean, yeah, it’s soft — but also extremely delicate and prone to irritation. Lanugo, vernix, cradle cap, stork bites…I don’t think most of us would like to have skin like a baby’s.

      Also, sleep. If by “sleep like a baby” you mean “wake up every three hours and wet yourself twice a night,” well, it no longer sounds so attractive!
