Let's Panic

The site that inspired the book!

At LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES, Eden Kennedy and I share our hard-won wisdom and tell you exactly what to think and feel and do, whether you're about to have a baby or already did and don't know what to do with it. →

Lo, there came upon the family two new members, and they were good 





No, she's not mine. I WISH. This here is Madeleine, my niece!




My brother James is marrying the sweet, lovely, incredibly brave (sorry, James) Gillian, who comes complete with BABY. That's what we call "value added."

I have no pictures of Gillian because when I met the baby I was too busy 1) adoring her and 2) trying not to eat her whole. You'll have to take my word for it when I tell you they are an attractive couple.

And oh my word. THIS BABY GIRL. Babies are even better when they're not yours. 




I say unto thee: I bring you tidings of great joy, and also hook a baby up with some victuals, wilt thou?

Oh, Maddy. I wilt. I WILT.

Absolutely induces wilt. And I think I just spontaneously ovulated, too.

Could not be any cuter! How old is she? So teeny tiny still! I have a small baby addiction. My five month old seems enormous already!

She looks like you Alice!

Oh my goodness. What a sweet and nomable baby!

Oh my goodness! So teeny and sweet... My littlest is still a baby himself, but baby pictures always make me want another. I'll settle for enjoying your pictures. For now, anyway. Happy Thanksgiving!

Can I just say how much I *LOVE* the idea that a woman coming with a baby is "value added". I mean, I really would expect nothing less from you, but what a lovely way to put it!

Wait im confused. So that baby isnt your brother's biological child? Why does she look so much like you and henry then? ?

November 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

What a fabulous baby. Congrats all around!

Oh, a baby.


Just hand me a spoon.

Jessica: It's a miracle? OR: meant to be? Or she's just an awfully, awfully lucky girl? :)

Does that make me a "great-aunt-in-law" twice removed, or something like that?? Enjoy basking in "auntie-hood", yet again.....She looks sweet & cuddly, so get your share!
Congrats to Gillian & James

That baby looks so darn pleased with herself in every picture. Love it!

I've been gone from the internet world for a while...longer than a humans gestational period, so I about flipped out when I saw a baby picture. She's cute- and congrats, even though she's not yours!

I see your "I wilt" and raise you one "I die" - so there!

November 28, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBonnie B.

Goodness - that is one gorgeous baby. She looks benevolent and wise.
