See, that whole godparent thing, that's the problem we really have right now, I think dh would go along with a baptism if I asked, but I'm not sure I want it or not, anyhow, back to point, we don't have anyone to ask to be godparents. We have very few close friends who are Catholic and we really don't want to ask them, and our siblings are either not cath or are not the kind of people you'd want to be godparents.
Either way, my mother has already gotten out my gown, she spent 2 weeks locked in her room making it when I was born, hired a sitter to sit in the house with me and bring me in to nurse and keep me occupied so she could finish it. Had special imported fabric and lace and who knows what else but it was uber-$$ at the time to make. And it's now cleaned and she's embroidered my initials and my brothers (although he was too big to wear it, they just laid it over top of him), and she's all excited about Lauren using it too. UGH. She's too big too, she'll never fit in it, and then dh's grandparents (grandpa is in the hosp. in Fla) who were angry with me that she wasn't born before they left for Fla. called to tell us we can't have a baptism until they come home at the end of April. Oooh ugh ggggh!
Andy, does Ori do a Stevie Wonder type head thrashing on your breast when he's so super tired like that? Lauren is doing that, and I just get tired of it and I pull my shirt back down and roll away from her, and 9x out of 10 she falls asleep in 2 min. I think maybe the boob is too much stimulation for her when what she really needs is left alone, so you might just be on to something by walking away.
Isn't there a girl-equiv. of a circumcision in Jewish tradition? I want to say maybe a naming ceremony or something? Could we all just do naming ceremonies or a blessingway type thing? Forget holy water and snipping boys, there has to be a better solution! Maybe Pam can teach all of us about her ritual.
Got to go, someone is squeaking from dh's arms, I think she's giving a potty signal but he's ignoring it... "I think she NEEDS to poop!" just got his arse up.
Ooooh and magical discovery, I made pancakes today with rice milk, and they taste nearly the same as regular pancakes, which means I'm a happy girl again. I'm going to have to go get more rice milk though, so I can make a big batch of pancakes and freeze them, it's better to micro them for a few seconds than try to hang on to babe and cook.
