11 Cool Things About Newborns

[twitter]Well, it’s been a week and I’ve survived. I’m a Dad. I’m doing it. As crazy and sleepless and stressful and confusing as it’s been, it’s also been absolute bliss.

To avoid any legal issues with David Letterman, here’s a Top 11 List of things I’ve discovered about life in the past week:

1. babies can hold their breath a really long time

2. everybody, deep down, means well

3. dirty diapers aren’t that dirty when your own son is the dirtier

4. the “miracle” part in the “miracle of life” is that women survive and want to do it again

5. sleep is a luxury, not a right

6. a baby’s vomit is the fastest way to stop an argument and bring peace

7. people who run around showing off pictures of their children aren’t crazy, the baby is their equivalent to the latest movie you saw or restaurant you ate at

8. babies have more outfits than Imelda Marcos had shoes because they need them

9. all you really need is 2 good hours

10. one smile erases a week of sleepless nights

11. 8 days old is a pretty cool age
