When I called at 10:30 she was in the tub, and her mom said 'she doesnt' like the way it feels, they're coming frequently, maybe 5 min apart, the midwife is going to bed.' Apparantly she got out of the tub around 11, her water broke on the floor, she sat on the toilet and felt like she had to push, and pushed the baby out at 11:15! The midwife arrive 4 min before, no tears, got up and around, placenta out, had another bath, baby is a girl, 8lbs even and beautiful and perfect! Hows that for a birth story??? Guess being young has an advantage!
That is SO great!! Congratulations to her!

I am a teeny weeny bit jealous though...
I haven't even written Micah's birth story because I don't like to think about it...: I thought I would be over it by now...

Whenever Liam is playing with a stuffed toy I ask him what the name of the stuffed toy is and he always answers "Badice" which is weird cause that's not even a name. But I swear Romi's been saying Badice lately too!
Micah "says" -- "bah-bah" (bye bye) and "bay-buh" (baby) and once or twice I could have sworn I heard "ma-ma"

Anyone else's babes go wild with happiness and excitement when they catch a glimpse of your boobies?

I thought it was just a fluke, so I would put my shirt down and she would stop....then lift it up and she would start flapping her arms and smiling again. I did it again and and again with the same reaction. I dunno why it's so funny to me - I guess I just didn't think she knew exactly WHERE her food was coming from.

Have a happy b-day tomorrow, doudat and mizliz!
Micah has this whiney "eh eh eh eh" thing he does when he sees them and wants them....If I "flash" him, he'll smile really big....And, if he just wants them and I am holding him, he just dives for them like he is going to eat the shirt and all!

2:20 am....I really thought it was going to be the 11th. I went in to labor some time late night 10th/early morning 11th. It brought me out of bed for the millionth time around 7 am (first time I looked at the clock).

Our babes remind me of each other for some reason, too! Not that they really look alike, but they are both long and slender....and have always been on the move. Micah is not quite the superbaby that Ion is, but he is definitely following close behind... Maybe Micah thinks he is a good role model...I think he needs to dial it back a notch (Micah that is...)

According to my MIL, Ion is not nearly as super as his dad who was running at 8 months

Just one more....(I promise)

Someone posted about their babe climbing on the stairs but I don't remember who it was...

I watched Micah do something similar the other day! I have a ceiling fan that I need to install in Micah's room (well, did when it was warm, but now that it's not there is no rush) and the box it is in is sitting in our living room and Micah LOVES to pull up on it. When it isn't actively in use, I just store it next to the entertainment center (about 2 ft. tall). On the end of the ent. cent. behind the TV (yes, I know they are evil... is the cable modem and wireless router which have lots of pretty green lights. Micah was trying to get the lights the other day. He pulled up on the box, leaned over, grabbed onto the edge of the ent. center, used his arms to hold himself steady, and pulled his knees up on the box, and proceeded to stand on the box. I am SO glad I was sitting there watching him do this because I would never have guessed he could do this!!

queen--your friend's birthing sounds wonderful! maybe it is an age thing. my friend (age 17) had a very smooth, natural birth too-very quick for a first birth. i love that axel calls eva banjo...what a cute nickname if it sticks

mizliz--sounds like nice birthday plans...i could go for some japanese food.

i agree, etsy is dangerous...

so, speaking of babytalk...last night while i was at work, zenon woke up and was upset. he started saying mamamamama alot and was very sad. kaylo got really upset hearing it and was saying "i love you" and trying to comfort him. so sweet. anyway, i think he can really say mama for me and papa for papa.

Happy Birthday MizLiz and doudat :!

Desmond slept for 3 hours straight last night, it was nice. It is also sad I'm happy for 3 hours straight, but that is another story .

Today we are driving to Richmond (and home) to visit my Grandparents (and drop my Mom off there, her flight is out of Richmond tomorrow). My Mom bought an electronic picture frame for my Grandmother so last night I put pictures of Desmond on it. It is the all Desmond all the time picture frame. It is really nice, and I should probably get one for us, since we don't have much room for more pictures of Desmond in our house.

Oh while we were out we found Guitar Hero 3 with the guitar at Target, so my Mom bought it for DH's Hanukkah present. I bought him the completely series of the old Adams Family TV show instead.

One of Desmond's new favorite tricks is climbing. He likes to climb up DH's leg onto the sofa and wander around up there, though he isn't quite sure how to get off so we have to keep an eye on him so he doesn't try to come down head first.

That's a funny one!!! I wonder how useful it'll end up being. And Etsy rocks. You can find a lot of crap there too, but once you get the hang of it, it's fabulous!

The storm is really bad right now. It's like snowy ice blowing everywhere :. Liam is coming home from a morning with grandma and Nico just sent me this picture from his cel phone:

ShyDaisi - That was me, Scarlet had climbed to the second stair the other day. Yesterday, she climbed on to the open dishwasher door, just looking into the dishwasher on all fours, what the heck!?

Got most of my Christmas shopping done today, thank goodness. Now the trick will be getting them into the house, wrapped and hidden from Mr. Interested in Every Little Thing, Max. Ah, the fun of Christmas, so fun!

Enjoy the snow, wish we had some, too. My folks got 8 inches, yowza.

i ate it raw in a smoothie--didn't taste it in that.

the rest i ate after it was steamed and dried. i powderized it and put it in yogurt or applesauce. dh said it smelled like liver while cooking...i am a vegetarian--wouldn't know. it does have a smell even after dried, but i don't have anything to compare it to.
