Andie is already 7 weeks old now and, as you can tell from my lack of posting, quite a time-suck. Don’t get me wrong, I love it and all the changes and development the little one is going through. In her 7 weeks on the planet she’s gone from an 8 and a half pound newborn that appeared to have a father of Asian-descent (did you see how black her hair was??), to someone that I can confidently say is my offspring.
I’m 6’7″ and Maggie is 5’8″ – so it stands to reason that we would have tall progeny, and Andie is growing like a weed. This past weekend we broke out the 3 month old clothes for the heat wave we (very briefly) experienced here in Seattle and they fit perfectly.
Yikes, this got me thinking about all of the questions I field regularly about Andie’s future pursuits, whether they be in WNBA or super modeling or both. She is destined to be tall, and we really should start the pageant circuit, shouldn’t we!?!? We need to be prepared…. AAAAAAAAAAAAA!
If we are going to get her “out there” we should start with those grooming habits. She generally has a nice film of breast-milk evenly distributed accross her body, but that gives her a nice sheen for the camera – we’ll keep that.
Generally speaking, we like to keep all of our “pets” nails at a long to very long level. Friday the dog can file her own nails by running on pavement for great distances, so why should we trim them? The cat, well, based on his catting about and catfighting prowess, it would be wrong for us to deal with those. Andie is our most exotic pet and to be frank, we have been letting the nails get a little long.

In some ways you could say this is being a neglectful parent, but I was thinking more about it, and if she truly wants a career in showbiz (and it’s pretty obvious she does), what better way then to have her break a world record. Great press and accolades are sure to follow quickly thereafter.
Forgetting about all the cash and prizes, think about how cool it would look if by the time she’s this ladies age, she’ll have finger nails twice as long!!!
As always we appreciate your thoughts and comments.
