I’m a Father Again

A little over three months ago — October 7, 2016 — Julie, Fox, and I welcomed River Kate Premo into the world and our family.

For a while I thought she looked like Michael Chiklis. First, while she was still skinny, she looked like bald, ripped Michael Chiklis. Then she gained weight and just a little hair and looked like chubby Michael Chiklis.

Her skin color is like mine, whereas Fox’s is more like Julie’s.

Fox likes her, but does get frustrated at times — like when one parent is in the bathroom and the other parent is holding the baby.

I’m sure that will get better.

I’m a Father.

Six weeks ago tomorrow — June 26, 2013 — Julie and I welcomed Fox Harrison Premo into the world and our family.

For the most part he’s been a great baby.  He cries, but not nearly as often as I anticipated. He pees after we open the diaper, but it doesn’t shoot over my head or worse — into my face. He eats, he sleeps, he poops.

He lets us know when he’s hungry. Sometimes he’s gassy.

He’s photogenic.  When he was born his hands and feet looked like adult hands and feet, just shrunk down.

Although I can’t remember the time specifically, I have seen pictures of myself as a baby.  I suspect that when my mom meets Fox, she will remark that he looks a lot like I looked.

He’s not particularly interactive just yet, but today I found myself looking at pictures of him on my phone, and I found myself wishing I was with him.  It was at that point I decided to start this blog.
