The baby that kept me from blogging

I've been absent from the blogging world for over a week. Long story, which hopefully I'll find time to tell in greater detail when I return home in a few days, but for now, I'd like to upload a few photos so you can all bask in the loveliness that is my new granddaughter.





Joli Samantha Rose Dawson
Born December 6, 2006
12:04 pm
8 pounds, 20-1/2 inches long




We're finally home, or rather, we're back at Joe and Lisa's home.

Joli is practicing the art of:

  1. nursing
  2. frowning with her eyebrows
  3. getting her diaper changed without alerting all of San Diego county
  4. being held
  5. looking adorable

Lisa is practicing:

  1. nursing
  2. walking on her new center of gravity
  3. how to keep a hat on a baby's head
  4. functioning with hardly any sleep

Joe is practicing:

  1. saying with complete awe "I have a daughter"
  2. the "papa" dance
  3. showing everyone he knows a photo of his daughter
  4. being the humble servant to yet another female
