My poor little Frankenbaby...

Oh, just saw the most lovely photo of Owen!

LOL, Owen and Ari are notoriously called the "same same" babies because they gestated for exactly the same amount of time, and Leah and I seemed to have the same sorts of systems usually at exactly the same time, they've even started smiling at the same age - they're only 2 days apart...

But, there is one way in which they're not *same same*...

Poor Ari is looking the worse for wear atm. He isn't a round little cherub like Owen (though he's working hard on getting there), but now, on top of that, he's gone and lost half his hair (he's developed a monk's hairline), and the skin on his head and face is shiny, oily, pimply and now peeling, as well... Poor little blighter!

Of course, I think he's gorgeous anyway... But I'm kind of glad my parents won't be seeing him for another couple of weeks, hahaha! Hopefully by then he'll be completely bald, instead of half bald, and even if he still has shiny, oily, pimply skin, hopefully the peeling will have run its course by then...

Ahh this made me chuckle!! I just said this morning to Steve as we said goodbye at the door Owen is in his ugly phase, the morning light wasn't being very kind to his complexion!! Those recent blogged photos don't show his pimples for some reason, but I assure you he has them. I resist a squeeze everyday LOL He has some dry skin too, but some baby moisturiser fixed that. I will say he has all his hair still! LOL Poor Ari! Tho I imagine he is growing in a beautiful lion mane.

I look at Audrey's 3 week old photos and think wow, you were more spotty than a leopard and redder than a tomato but I never saw it at the time LOL Somehow we manage to see right through it all, and I am sure Ari is still very beautiful!

Oh yeah, he's totally beautiful! Yk how people like to say their babies have these wise old man/woman faces? Well, not Ari, he looks totally wide eyed innocent, like all this is brand new to him and he's quite perplexed by it all, LOL...

I have to wonder if Lucy got ANYTHING right about him, rofl (having said he'd been here before and lived a tough emotional life where he was responsible for the welfare of his little sister)...

Although, having said that, this child knows EXACTLY what he wants... He can forcebly posh his dummy out of his mouth with both hands when he doesn't want it, and if he wants a feed, he'll grizzle, I'll pick him up and if I don't seem to be moving fast enough, he'll kicking impatiently with his legs, like, "C'mon, hurry up, I'm WAITING!" rofl!
