Some thoughts on gloating


Our child is perfect.

Now I know everyone says that about their child, but in this case, it’s the God’s honest truth.

Each week, Francisco and I pull out a book that Nancy gave us which maps out a baby’s normal development week by week.

Mariel is always meeting and usually exceeding her developmental milestones, so we close the book proud and satisfied.

This week, there was a line we found somewhat jarring: “By this week, your baby should only be crying one hour a day.” Other than the first week of her life, when she was all but starving because I had no breast milk, Mariel never really cries at all.

Now I know the gods are going to send down the cosmic smackdown on me, but
“Oh yeah, our baby is perfect.”
