Some of the joys of new parenthood
I've been having lots of chances to hang out with Petra and fall in love. Here are some of the things I've been struck by in the past several days:

Petra started giving us social smiles on her one-month birthday, two weeks before I expected them. They get more frequent every day. I am incredibly motivated by this to do exceptionally silly things. Who knew I could scat? I'm actually getting pretty good at it. I think this is fundamentally good for me. If you know me, you probably know that I am way too earnest. Thus, I think, do infants train their parents to be as silly as they need us to be.

Time to go. The Menschkin needs feeding.
