The Baby Ellie Chronicles

Mrs. LMC and Ellie came home yesterday afternoon and treated us to a night of little sleep. Random thoughts:
1. Our Little Debutante is not beyond attention-getting tactics now that the competition has arrived. Last night she announced she gave her bed its own little baptism, without a trace of embarrassment or regret. The pediatrician told my wife that our daughter will surprise us with her maternal instincts. One can only hope. The primary purpose of the baby monitor is to alert us whenever Our Little Debuante enters Ellie's room.
2. Ellie has to be held to sleep. Putting her in a bouncy seat or an oscillating swing is not an acceptable substitute.
3. KMR once observed the baby monitor is like an idol in an action movie set in a primitive culture. Sometimes it is harmless and at others it becomes an angry god which must be appeased.
4. I can still attach a nipple to a bottle of Similac with one hand while holding the baby in the other. As a matter of fact, I can feed her with one hand and blog with other. I am doing it now.
5. Last night's cable lineup included one of the worst sci-fi flicks ever: Krull. I watched most of it in the wee hours for the first time since I inflicted it on my college girlfriend in 1983. It has not improved with age although I note it had to be one of Liam Neelson's first gigs. I understand why he does not talk about it. If Chai-Rista was still blogging, I would nominate this awful movie for "Truly Bad Films."
