Dear Liam

January 11, 2008 Jordana

While I have no doubt of the deep and abiding affection that exists between us, I feel that a few limits need, perhaps, to be made more explicit:

1. While I do supply you with tasty milk (simultaneously providing a pleasant sucking experience), I am neither a pacifier, a chew toy, nor one of those teething ring things.
2. Kittens are cute. Babies are cute. Kittens kneading things with their paws are cute, unless, of course, THEY ARE KNEADING YOUR VULNERABLE ARM AND BOSOM WITH THEIR CLAWS. There is a lesson here.
3. As a small infant, you are quite content to sleep in roughly two-hour increments. As a 28-year-old woman, I am not.

I appreciate your attention to these matters. I am sure that with proper dialogue and willingness to accommodate, we can enjoy a fruitful partnership for years to come. Oh, and could you please make up your mind about the teething thing?

Best regards,
Mommy

NEWS FLASH:
At 7:45 this morning, Liam tasted his first solid food, in the form of sweet potatoes. At 7:46, he expressed mild disapprobation. As he just received three shots and some rotovirus drops at his six-month checkup today, I think we’ll wait a few days before approaching him with non-breastmilk sustenance again.

    He is NOT 6 months old. You made that up, surely.

    So, how big was he? Madelaine wants to know. 😉
