weekend wrap-up

well, it was another full weekend! bebe is getting a little fussier later in the evening, but sleeping through most of the night. we get a pretty acceptable amount of sleep at night right now, so thanks for that, beebs. and speaking of beebs, you may have noticed we've been busily creating nicknames for our daughter. since we both realize our propensity towards abandoning original chosen names for more colorful nicknames(a la the cat, who hasn't been called 'caeser' since he was probably ten days old, and is instead referred to as 'chief weezy cheezle,' 'patches o'droolibran,' 'tiny,' 'mini,' 'minners,' 'bittles,' 'dibbles,' weezy,' 'the weeze,' 'the b,' and i assure you, the list goes on...) -where the hell was i? oh, so we're trying to remain conscious of the fact that her name is beatrix, that we really love that name, and that her name should remain intact. but that she may also be occasionally known as:

the beebs
bebe marie
bebe mareebee(courtesy of mems)
beebs mareebs
squeezy marie
one-eyed jack
the pink lady
the milk monkey
missus lady bubble bottom

and my personal favorite:

ladies and gentlemen, give it up for DJ Chubby Cheeseneck!

get those hands up! i want to see those hands in the air!

now it helps if you picture her wearing a pink or white fuzzy kangol:
and i've been looking, but they don't come small or cheap. we'll see...

so the weekend brought on more nicknames, some nap time with daddy:

some nap time with mommy:

and some hang-time:

the weekend also featured some feedings:

some post-feeding milk drunkenness:

followed by some victorian-era lower extremity exhibitionism.

The Nana

and on sunday, she got all dressed up to meet her uncle seth for the first time:

they make a pretty cute couple

colleen looks on as bebe
inspects her uncle's facial hair

which she promptly, and quite literally, thumbed her nose at.

things were going really well until all of a sudden, in the middle of a conversation, beatrix went for a nipple. right in the middle of a conversation! bad bebe!
seriously! where are your manners? uncle seth handled it like a champ- he quickly changed the subject from 'the politics of a potential draft reinstatement' to 'preparing a delicious no-bake cheesecake in 15 minutes or less!' and we all moved on.

it was a pretty full weekend for someone who isn't even two weeks old yet.

next week: what the job market looks like for three-week-olds...
