A Little Dab'll Do Ya

SO ... I've been off the grid for at least a week now. I hadn't realized how much blogging is a force of habit, that once broken, is really hard to start up again.

I feel rusty. Or maybe that's tired. Maybe it's the baby waking us up every couple of hours (feels like minutes) in the night. He's a cutie and make no mistake (said the proud papa).

What have I been doing all this time? Not much that would interest you: changing diapers, snickering at the mustard yellow color, practicing the burrito baby wrap to make him all snug and cozy, getting that cramp back in my arm that can hold a young 'un for hours on end, looking for the binky (pacifier) when Momma isn't available, re-discovering my patented "Daddy pat" that can put any baby to sleep, and just holding and marveling and laughing at this awesome baby boy, that's what.

Like I said, nothing to you, but music to me.

We had some really great Name the Nodling entries that made it harder and harder to pick his cybernym. Must I pick just one? Awwwright. That's my prerogative. First I leaned this way, then that. But after due consideration the winning selection is (drumroll) ....

... Dab.

Reminds me of the old Brylcreem jingle "a little dab'll do ya".
Bryl-creem, a little dab'll do ya,
Use more, only if you dare,
But watch out,
The gals will all pursue ya,--
They'll love to put their fingers through your hair.
Bryl-creem, a little dab'll do ya,
Bryl-creem, you'll look so debonair.
Bryl-creem, the gals will all pursue ya,
They'll love to RUN their fingers through your hair.
Say hello, handsome!

Congratulations!!! I am sorry I didn't say so sooner. This is outstanding, and I think Dab goes well as a moniker. :)

Well hello Dab... glad to meet ya!

He got dibs on being dubbed Dab. As in: "B'dab b'dab b'dab dab's all folks!"?

I'm sure his siblings are overjoyed as well (at least until you ask the older ones to take care of the Cream of Mustard diapers, right?)

Congratulations again!

Beautiful baby! Congratulations! It used to make me so mad when I couldn't get the baby to sleep, and hubby could, so I was definitely grinning when you were talking about it!
