We decided to do a Reddit IAmA using the username KosmosAroundTheWorld. Hi Reddit!
All the baby gear we got for Kosmos has been working out great. We use the glider chair for breast feeding, the diaper changing station in the forward stateroom, and during the night he sleeps in the little folding bassinet next to our bed in the mid-stateroom.
We took Keith out for his first cruise yesterday. It was just a quick bay trip to keep Kosmos exercised. We put Keith in the car seat in the pilot house for the duration of the trip. He seemed to really like the engine noise. While underway, he mostly slept. However, during docking he figured out he was not the center of attention and got upset.
Keith has been a good baby overall, doing all the usual things. Christi is recovering nicely. We think we have adjusted pretty well to taking care of Keith. Christi has commented that waking up a couple times for 30-45 minutes to breast feed and diaper change in the middle of the night is easier than having to wake up for a 4 hour watch during a passage!
We made a two page photo montage of Keith from Mar 16-24. Most of them came from a session where he was wide awake making all kinds of faces. Take a look. While we think they are all adorable pictures, we like the “faceplant”, “I’m so fabulous”, and “winky face”.
We are pleased to announce our son, Keith Frederick Grab, was born on March 16, 2012! Weight 3110 grams (6 pounds 13 ounces) and 48 cm (19 inches) long. Mother and baby are doing well.
And something else fun, his was born on 3/16, and in the hospital we are in room 316.
