Life with Baby

For those of you who don’t know, Joshua William Kligerman arrived at 4:27am on February 13, 2007, weighing in at 6lb and 4oz, at Mount Sinai hospital in Toronto.  Delivery was long and difficult (long and difficult for mom and baby, just long for me), but ultimately a truly unique and wonderful experience.

Joshua is now three months old, and life with baby is just lovely.  Believe it or not, he has been sleeping quite well for about a month now, waking up only once or twice to feed, but going right back to sleep.  He has been growing and developing rapidly, as you would expect, and has recently begun making a variety of noises, as well as having discovered his hands this week.  Who knew that realizing you have hands could be so exhilarating?

As you can imagine, life has also been busy–hence the lack of new reports of my Walking the Earth.  To help fit in enough time to get work done while things are quiet, I have adjusted my schedule such that I now awaken at 5:30am (a time that was previously unquestionably reserved only for sleeping), allowing for a couple hours of work before, well, leaving for work.  So far I have found that working early in the morning is much more productive than working late in the evening; motivation, enthusiasm and clarity of thought are all enhanced, making it possible to complete work that is big and important, yet not necessarily urgent and in your face (email).
