While I was away...

Well, what I didn’t tell you all, was that way back when I still blogged, I was selected to be a contestant on the Weakest Link. The programme was recorded in January 2007 and I, J. Hardspear De la Azotea was broadcasted all over South Africa in July 2007. What do you mean how did I fare? Of course I won! I was not the best – general knowledge wise – the guy who went into the final round with me was, but I put up such a dazzling act that I ended up in the final round. Then Lady Luck smiled upon me and my remaining opposition got im-fucking-possible questions in the final round. I got 2 out of 5. I won R28 000 and boy did it come in handy. Ok, then I stopped blogging for a few months, after which I did one more post to say goodbye. In that post I mentioned that we were having a little trouble, we wanted to start with a family, but Lamb did not fall pregnant. Then I disappeared for about a year. Well, very shortly after that final post Lamb did fall pregnant. We were over the moon. Our little baby girl (Image) was born on 5 November 2008. Image is stunningly beautiful. I know you think I say that because I am her Daddy, but she is the prettiest baby I’ve ever laid my eyes upon. She has red hair, but her eyes are still blue – should start changing just about now. Most likely her eyes will be brown, but I am hoping for green. She is nearly 4 months old. Image turned out to be a colicky baby. That is over now – I do not know whether it is since she turned the magical 3 months old, or is it the soy formula we put her on. What do I miss most of my life before Image was born? “Me time” and sleep. Though the colic is gone, Image is not a very good little sleeper. Mommy & Daddy’s got to take turns to get up when baby is difficult. That way at least one gets to sleep every second night. Since Lamb and I had a very good relationship before Image came along, our relationship survived the upheaval really well. This is a real good thing, since the sex life suffers considerably. But, despite all of this, overall the whole getting a baby experience has been so worth the while and I wouldn’t want to go back to before…
