I was texting with Mark yesterday and he accidentally ended a sentence in a question mark and then said, "I just Anchormaned that sentence." From the movie Anchorman, when someone accidentally puts a question mark at the end of a sentence and Ron reads it as written, "I'm Ron Burgundy?"
(And then later he reads, "Go Fuck Yourselves, San Diego." Gah, I love that movie.)
Anyway, I wrote the title to this post and it looks like I Anchormaned the title.
No matter how you look at it, Adelle is one month old. I mean, she's more than four weeks old. But she was born May 29, so maybe she isn't a month old until June 29? Am I supposed to go by weeks or by the calendar date? Important details to nobody, I'm sure. Let's just get right to the cute, shall we?

(Seriously, I do know people that I didn't meet on the Internet, and occasionally I send them real mail. I swear. Most of them like me, too, if you can fathom!)
Other very cute things happened that were not professionally photographed. I have a very nice camera but I have no idea how to work it and really, I take all of my pictures on my iPhone.

Very exciting, aparently.
|"Ima pet her. Like a doggie."|
|It's hot out, idiots.|
Also, I am rocking this hat.
Also also, Adelle has entered the colicky/witching hour phase where, for an hour or two every night, she is just pissed the hell off and nobody can make her happy for more than five minutes at a time. This is the phase that made me realize that babies can act like assholes. It is the reason that I do not especially enjoy the newborn phase and, regretfully, makes me wish I could fast forward to three months. I hate to wish time away, but by the time of day the crying starts, my nerves are shot and I just really want a beer and some earplugs.
|And then she falls asleep on me and does a sleep smile and I'm all,|
"What? I love newborns!"
I bought those monthly onesie stickers that everyone seems to have for their babies. But when I ordered them from Etsy I didn't realize the shop was in Canada and so shipping is expensive and takes forever. I FAIL at life at least daily so this was not a surprise to me. Plus they started at zero months so now I am two months behind. MomFAIL.
Adelle really is a nice little chunk of baby. I do believe that I will keep her, especially since I have not yet finished gnawing on her deliciously fat cheeks.
