Right on Jake, it is the one thing I would do different if I could, make myself a baby or two.
Of course finding the right Mommie for them is good too but I'd settle for a couple of kids alone...

She is a beauty for sure and it is gonna be a real load of fun for Daddy as the boys start to notice this too as time passes.
Too bad for the boys that Daddy is so well armed and not afraid to use them, too bad for Evey too. :)

Jake, get a microwave sterilizer for the bottles much easier just rinse & nuke. I’ll see if I still have my sons around if I can find it I can ship it to you. Amazing how fast you go from needing 5~8 hours of sleep to being glad you got 3 hours interrupted sleep ain’t it!

Steely - I'm finding this late, but CONGRATULATIONS, man! She sure is a pretty one. You got her first little kukri picked out yet? :D Maybe Auntie Yangdu can have a pink-handled one made? ;)

Thanks, guys :)

She's getting bigger every day, Danny:) She's got to be close to crossing the 8lb mark and is eating voraciously. We think she might end up tall. Bren's family is all tall (mine is a mix of brute and gelfling). She has bren's long piano fingers and long legs. Looks like she got my big feet (sorry baby girl). The more time goes on, it looks like she's keeping Bren's eye color and my eye shape.

The one thing that she does that is a chore is she's on a 39 hour poop cycle:confused: The doctor says not to worry as long as she's wetting her diaper (which she is...heavily). However, she just saves up this massive load that looks like a Dijon mustard factory exploded in her pants.

The good news...she generally does this when I'm at work:D

You know, it's always the folks who have their kids after they are settled a bit and have a house who are fascinated by babies' output.

Young parents, usually working a couple of jobs, just don't have time to glory in such. :)

Usually, they are:"Clothed? Fed? Quiet yet? Good.":rolleyes:

You don't live with my wife:p
This is how it went down the first time anal retentive Evey decided to get fecal frugal on us:

1:15pm
"She hasn't pooped. Should we call the doctor?"
"She's fine. if she doesn't got tomorrow, maybe give them a call."

5:37pm
"She still hasn't gone, and she's grunting a lot. I think I'm going to call."
"OK, if it makes you feel better."
"You think I'm being silly?"
"Honey, I have no idea what is up with the baby."
"Fine. I won't call."

10:43pm >3 minutes after I climb back into bed, right as I am falling asleep after changing a wet diaper and leaving the baby in her crib with a full belly of formula<
"...did she poop?"
"mgnngh? Wha?"
"Did she have a poopy diaper?"
"No. It was wet."
"Was she OK?"
"What?"
"Did she seem OK? She's been fussy and farty all day."
"She's a baby. That's what they do."
"I'm calling the Dr. tomorrow."
"OK, honey if it makes you feel better we can call the D.."

>over the baby monitor<
"Gurrrr ugh mmph KERSPLOOOSHhhhh...shooosh"
"Well I guess you don't have to call the Dr."
"It's your turn to change her."
"Ohhh no. That was a 5 alarmer. All hands on deck, mama;)"

Congrat again on your baby Jake.

Changing diapers, mixing milk, waking up 5 times everynight,... All those are waiting for me in another 2 months. Mid to end Oct, it's my time.

Cheers,

Hung

Looks like me. :D

Doh and here I had been eying the milk man for my current predicament:D

Congrats, Hung:thumbup:
It really is an awesome thing. A draining, anxious, worrisome, thing....but awesome nonetheless:D

Projectile Vomit is also one of parenting's little joys. I can laugh about it now but having just cursed myself my son will probably come home sick like that now. There is simply no way anything that small can spew that much volume that far:eek:
hunglvq congrats:thumbup: I look forward to welcoming you to the club.
