It's my baby's birthday!!!
It's crazy to think that exactly three years ago, I was lying in an OR recovery bed with a bitchy nurse by my side while Jason and Brynn were up in the nursery. In fact, I think it was right around 6:30am that she was FINALLY brought back to me (after almost 2 hours!!) and we nursed for the first time! That was the point when they wanted to take her back to the nursery because of "hospital policy," and I said, "Well I'm her mother, and MY policy is that she stays with me!"
So this morning I got up a little early to make her a special breakfast and then we'll open some presents before we head to school where she will have a birthday celebration in class.
This afternoon I'm actually meeting with the HB MW that we will likely hire (Jennifer, FYI Kavita) so that's not very celebratory but today was the only day we could both meet. Tonight, we'll probably take Brynn out to do dinner of her choosing - I'm guessing she'll pick a bagel at Panera.
Jen, thanks for posting the pictures!! This computer won't load them (gr!!) so I'll have to try to see them from another computer today. I'm so glad you had fun!
Kavita, best wishes to your dad today. I hope everything goes smoothly. And
about the vasectomy comment. So true!!!
Spughy, I'm sorry to hear about your mom!! I hope they find out the issue so she can recover quickly. I know tachycardia is usually soemthing you have forever,but I hope it doesn't interfere with her life too much.
Emily - I do agree with the vasectomy thing too! Women are responsible for EVERYTHNING, and it messes with our bodies too much! Oh, and for computing, go to the library! It's free!!
Mel, the Calhoun thing was sort-of a joke. When I lived in New Orleans, one of my friends lived on Calhoun Street, and I always loved the name, and thought that if I ever had to randomly change my last name (I know, I'm a dork) I would choose Calhoun. So I always told Jason that if we had a boy, he'd be named Calhoun, and when I was pregnant with Brynn, we actually called her Calhoun before we found out she was a girl! Now, I've conceded that we don't have to name our son Calhoun, but maybe when we get a dog . . .
Oh, and that reminds me, Gunter, Brynn is totally attached to the name Buxton right now! Jason's aunt bought her a stuffed beaver while we were in Ark (at a state park, so it wasn't totally random) and she named it Buxton, and she definitely thinks the baby should be named Buxton too. So funny!
Well I finally got a good nights sleep last night, so I'm off to make breakfast and have a good birthing day.
