Happy Anniversary Tim, thanks for another great year.

Matilda has reached the stage where everything goes into the mouth. While her hands seem to be a favorite item for sucking, the plush purple cow is a close second. Cow has gone quite rapidly from soft and fluffy to rather soggy and crusty around the edges. However, Slashfood has brought to my attention a rather nice replacement for Matilda's current beefy companion in case we need to replace him.

- When you poop in the tub it will severely cut short your bathing experience.
Matilda has gone from hating baths to loving them. So much so that she now protests when we take her out too soon. Imagine then, how unhappy she was this morning to discover that after a nice relaxing poop she was promptly removed from the tub. I am not quite sure how to convey to her that in order to continue enjoying her bath she cannot exercise her bowels.

She likes this ant best, since he wears number 10 like all the best players on each team: Rosicky, Ronaldinho,Totti, Zidane, and all her other favorites.
I like the referee Ant waving his red card best of all!

I am in love with Bob. Don't tell Tim.

Now that you can witness the power of breastmilk working on our own little chubster, I thought you might feel the need to make a more public statement on breastfeeding. Tim voted for "that's my baby's lunch you're staring at..." and I am getting him a "Why wouldn't I want to see more breasts in public?" bumper sticker.
Or you might simply be curious about your legal rights associated with breastfeeding. My favorite perk in California is the excusal from jury duty. I am quite curious about Missouri's law and would like to know who gets to define what is discrete enough..... nipple out for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, whole boob out? Who's to say?

Carry her where you might wonder?? We opted not to find out and declined her generous offer of relieving Tim of his 12-pound load.
"Does she know you?" -an elderly woman waiting at a bus stop
I think she probably meant does she recognize me yet, but I like to imagine it the other way. No, she doesn't know me; she just walked up and strapped herself onto the front of a stranger.
Hopefully (if the strangers can keep up their end of the deal) this will be an ongoing series of unusual comments. Babies make people do funny things.

We have ourselves a spitter. Initially we were very disturbed by the amount that M spits up, however, the pediatrician assured us not to worry. Dr. Kramer said that there are two types of spitters: happy spitters and problem spitter. The happy spitter gains weight and is not bothered by their spitting, whereas the problem spitter gains poorly or get upset when they spit up. It is clear from the photo what type we have.
I like the way my Breastfeeding Answer Book states it: "in a healthy baby, spitting is a laundry problem, not a medical problem." Laundry is definitely a problem, and convincing M it is better for us to wipe the goop off her face. She gets more upset by the wiping than the actual process of spitting up.

When first presented with this enormous box of wipes from the generous Wilson family at our baby shower we wondered out loud about how long they would last....... well folks, now we have an answer.
One month, exactly.
We started using wipes when M turned one month and Saturday when she turned two months we returned to Costco to restock. Let's just say that is a lot of butt wiping!
