Star Wars: Return of the Inen

So I've found myself making numerous parallels between my newborn son and Star Wars. This is probably my true geekiness showing through, but it seems to happen so naturally. The first time was in the hospital, when they had Inen wearing a little onesie that looked so similar to Luke Skywalker's getup: white, robe-like...

As we got to experience more of the "faces of Inen" (he is SO expressive), I've found that some of those faces are reminiscent of Star Wars characters. First was the scrunchy Yoda face. We've also seen the half-smile smirk so remarkably like that of cocky Han Solo.

Then today, I was wearing a black shirt and Inen was wearing a little white onesie again, ala Luke. I, being his father and not his mother, do not have the built in equipment to feed him. I didn't want to bottle feed him, because his mother was going to be out of the shower and in to feed him shortly. He was perfectly content until he realized that it had been more than 30 minutes since the last meal and he was hungry again. "I can't feed you, Inen. I am your father." (Insert heavy machine-aided breathing here.) Suddenly he showed me the pained, contorted, red face that until previously I thought only Mark Hamill was capable of. "Noooooooo!!! It's not true! That's impossible!"

Oh, child, may the Force be with you.


  1. Holy cow! Brandon the Sith Lord?!?! Say it ain't so!

  2. That is hilarious. Oh my. Even funnier is that those movies (the good ones) were just on cable the other day here, and I watched bits and pieces of each of them.


  3. He-he. Am I the ONLY person around here who does not care about Star Wars?
