I f’d SXSW 2009

I’ll be the first to admit that some of my friends were more excited than others that I was having a baby. Some expected it and others seemed downright resentful that their playmate was taken away. Remember when I had the onesie making baby shower? One of my best friends made me this onesie which I thought was downright hilarious.

The onsie is like a scarlet letter for the poor baby. Sure I’m sad I can’t be at SXSW with my friends, but I’d much rather be home with my new baby wearing this onesie. Poor little thing didn’t F’ up South by South West for anyone. I’m sure this will be the most interesting March in my life and after attending SXSW for the last 10+ years I have had some pretty interesting months of March in my time.

Hope my ladies are out there hitting all the day parties, getting their fill of free drinks (don’t forget the Twang) and enjoying some awesome music. I like to think it won’t be the same without me there, but I’m sure they will all pull through. In the meantime baby and I are at home keeping it real, reading the Tweets about SXSW and having our own grand ole’ time.

    That’s hilarious! I love her little face! You’re right, being home with your new baby is even better than getting drunk in broad daylight!! 🙂

    Lil’ Whip is looking gorgeous, I must say!

    Don’t feel bad — I’m going to haul my rapidly ballooning pregnant belly to SXSW, but I bet I’ll only do a day or two… hope I won’t be miserable. And I hear you about the friends thing!

    Being home with baby is so much more important. 20 years from now, you will not regret missing SXSW. But if you had missed time with baby, you would’ve definitely regretted it. You can never get that time back and it’s such a precious time. 🙂

    Erin you are a brave woman hitting the shows. Still thinking of conquering Round Top too? You can do it! Second trimester is weird high energy time.

    Knit Purl I totally agree. We are having out own party here. Well not exactly a party she is sleeping and I’m blogging.

    Did i miss the post where you announced the arrival of your precious baby? (if so, i feel so bad).
    Congratulations on a beautiful little girl. I love her lips..

    Enjoy every moment with her.

    Sommer you didn’t miss any posts, this is her first blog appearence. Full details post with more pictures coming soon I promise. Just wanted to show her in her SXSW onesie since it was time sensative 🙂

    KV SXSW is pretty dang fun, but not as fun as staring at my baby, taking her for walks and cuddling in the middle of the night.

    first e-appearance of miss tallulah! (which, btw was on my girl name list, so BRAVO!) If it makes you feel any better, elliot could be wearing a matching onesie to this. but its okay, he’s laughing at himself in his jumper and i can have a beer and be more entertained than watching a wall collapse at the moose lodge! sing it!

    What a cutie pie! I think playing with the kids is way more fun than going to see bands and stuff. Ten years ago I would not believe such words would come from my own mouth. Times change. Hooray for change! Yay cute babies!

    I’m hoping to power through just a few more things (Round Top, whoo hoo!) and then I’ll feel like I’ve done it all. I’m starting to get tired again, though.

    But if baby boy were already here, I wouldn’t think twice about staying home and being with him. Actually, I’m really pretty jealous of your baby time!

    congratulations jen! i’ve been reading your blog like a madwoman waiting to see whether lil whip was a boy or a girl. she’s a cutie! hope y’all are having lots of fun!

    Andra that is so funny I too was at that party and saw the same wall fall, will not be missing the dewars.

    Jenny I know 10 years ago kids over bands was something I never thought could happen. I’ve been going to see bands for over 15 years I needed a change 🙂

    Linda the jig is up its a girl! I was so glad we waited to find out and yes I was hella happy when the doctor said its

    congratulations, jennifer! welcome to the world of the ever behind and sadly out of the loop…;)

    i remember when ramona was born how shocked i was to not give a damn when i was missing out on stuff my friends were doing. that lasted a few months. then the bitterness set in.

    i jest.
