So, I have totally become that Mom — the one who dresses her child up in cutesy outfits and takes embarrassing photos. Anything with animal ears is a must-have. To date, Cole has been a bear (twice), a bunny, and a baby hippo. Most of these animal hats have been crocheted by my mother-in-law, so I sort of had to dress him up in them. (That’s my excuse anyway. I secretly, or not so secretly now, love it and think it’s hilarious!)
I don’t know why I already derive so much enjoyment out of embarrassing my son. He’s only five and a half weeks old! Maybe there is something wrong with me.
I’ve taken pictures of him in the bath, pictures of him drooling, and pictures of him while he grunts and pinches a loaf in his diaper. Oh, I also have a collection of Cole 'model poses,' that have been inspired by his outrageous sleeping positions. I’m already imagining which photos I will include in his wedding slide show.
And speaking of slide shows, I’ve already created a little embarrassing video memento that I’d like to share with all of you.
Cole, you can thank me later.
Your Jerk Mother
