These Are A Few Of My Daughter’s Favorite Things

My daughter is now nearly six weeks old. Like any well-adjusted, mature little person, she has developed a set of desires and preferences, both positive and negative. Here are some of hers.

My daughter likes:

  • Food.
  • Mom.
  • More food.
  • Coltrane.
  • The BBC World Service News podcast.
  • Making faces.
  • Having her hands on her face All. The. Time.
  • Additional food.
  • The story of King Hezekiah, 13th King of Judah.
  • Being in her carseat.
  • Holding hands during story time.
  • Still yet more food.

My daughter dislikes:

  • Sleeping quietly. She prefers to coo and gurgle and sometimes yell out NYSE buy/sell orders in her sleep.
  • Not eating.
  • Having her hands removed from her mouth so she can eat.
  • Sleeping anytime her parents are just sitting down to a meal or to watch a show on Netflix.
  • Baths.
  • The assault of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Russian forces on rebel-held areas of Syria, particularly the bombing of hospitals in eastern Aleppo.
  • Not eating. (Not a repeat.)
  • Sitting still for pictures.
  • The Star Wars prequels. (She likes The Force Awakens despite Dad explaining that it’s totally a rip-off of A New Hope.)
  • Anytime Mom and Dad don’t bring the food Right. This. Minute.
