It's terrible, but I only use his name if I am yelling at/for him. "Caaaaarl! Supper's on!"
Or "Carrrrl! The baby needs a clean diaper!"
Otherwise, I call him by a nickname. And I only started calling him by his name fairly recently, as we have gotten much busier and he has started to get on my nerves more.
but where in the debil do you go to buy wheat?
I even have a grain mill. DH uses it to make beer. I like beer.

Where's she at on the growth chart? Did they take her prematurity into account? Did they check her adjusted age?
And do you have some guess as to why she has been throwing up? What kind of things does she normally eat?
Hang in there-- my (full-term) DD was diagnosed FTT, too, and though she's still not on the charts, she IS finally looking a little less pitiful.
It's not easy, for sure.
HA! Girl, that is the story of my life. My son got into a bin of (expensive organic) flour last week, while I was on MDC having a sanity break.

gosh, they're cute.

I can. I think it is morally wrong to have more children than one can afford to feed or educate, and yet I defend people's legal right to do exactly that. Because the alternative is worse.
I also think it is morally wrong to be a white supremecist, but I defend people's right...
