J-Mac and a Baby  

On my out of town trip last weekend to West Palm Beach, I visited my good friends Dan and Sarah who are husband and wife, both of whom I've known since starting college - about 10 years now. 

I was their first house guest since their new baby arrived on Sept. 9th., so I wasn't quite sure what to expect with a newborn in the home - especially now that these longtime friends of mine are actually PARENTS, and it's still a little foreign to think of them that way.

But the weekend turned out swell, as baby Natalie was as well-behaved as any infant could possibly be. She barely fussed at all, and when she did, she would quiet right up in seconds. And Dan and Sarah are able to make it through most of the nights with Natalie sleeping 4-5 hours at a time between feedings - a pretty good stretch for any baby her age.

Anyway, I know
[info]_cinjudes_  wanted to see a few pics, and I figured [info]latinatemptress would get a kick out of these, as well. So I'll cut a few pics of Dan and Sarah's new family, as well as myself with the rugrat:

A good sign that she'll be passed out soon:

And this was the onesie/t-shirt combo I gave to Sarah as her shower gift of sorts - perfectly appropriate, and they thought so, too:


t-shirt (she'll grow into it):

And that's about all the personal stuff for now.  I have TV to watch.

Kristen Bell is awesome.

OMG, too precious for words! Matter of fact you are so precious and just right holding that baby that I may not even demand request that you shave the goatee before vacay this year. Kinda looks hot to me now. ;P

Again, send my congrats to your friends for me. A very beautiful baby girl indeed - she's gonna grow up to be such a sweetie.

Thanks again for talking to me until my phone died Saturday. I needed a 3 1/2 hour confab with my Daddy more than you can imagine. I think we may actually be caught up now. LOL.

That facial fuzz was only after about 5-6 days, too. It looks better now, as it's filled in more. I just felt like switching it up for a bit, since I'd been clean-shaven for well over a year. I may get rid of it before too long, though - we'll see.

And it turned out I almost reached the battery limit on my house phone's handset, too. After we hung up, I realized the charge was almost completely gone, and the indicator light was flashing the 'low battery' signal. So we were about to be cut off either way, lol.

Also - I am caught up, TV-wise - including stuff from last night. It took me a whole week to do it, but now everything I need to watch has yet to air! Sweet!

*ahem* May I interject here and say that I love the goatee? But thats just my opinion.


The baby is precious and i love the outfits you picked out. Very Jeff-Like and very much appreciated by them Im sure. I loved the 2nd one where she's yawning. Those split second moments caught on camera always make me turn into a soft gooey pile o'girl.

Yeah, for that pic, that was kinda the idea. ;)

What a cutie! I love the outfits you provided--nothing like starting her off early!

Yes, fun was had, as they expected nothing less from me. On the thank you card Sarah sent back for the gift, she even included a Superman stamp.

They know me too well ;)

Good to see you on board the KBell bandwagon (at least a bit). Her awesomeness was, of course, first showcased to my attention as the incomparable Veronica, and then solidified when I met and spoke with her this year.

I'm hoping this week's teaser appearance on Heroes is just that - a tease - so when she shows up again two episodes from now, we get to dig into who Elle is and where she's from. Her three scenes did wonders to kick the show in the ass a bit, but were hardly indicative of what she's truly capable.

Oh, and the onesie came from an individual who makes them custom. I looked all over to find something Supergirl-related for babies, but had a hell of a time. Mostly kids and little girls' stuff, but nothing for infants. This woman makes custom-printed baby gear - and lives in London.

God bless the Interwebs.

Babies are cute. I love that little onesie too, I'd absolutely buy that for my nieces to wear.

If I had personally known anyone else expecting, I would have gotten more, lol.
