A couple of months ago we got some pro photos taken of Arwen. They were a tad expensive let us say, but the main thing is that the quality was good, and the poses were humurous. Anne Geddes the photographer was not, but they came out nice enough. We had a friend take some at Walmart, and they were definitely not even close in terms of quality of shot, and pose. They actually looked fugly to tell the truth. However, instead of a few hundred, I think they dropped like 50 bux on it, so it shows.
At any rate, we spent it, wisely or not, so here they are in all their glory!
This is an incredibly scary subject for parents, or parents to be. Shaken baby syndrome is something that is very real, and there is a lot of misinformation out there. This video really helped me to understand the stress points, and potential possibility of damage, in critical damage areas.
It takes a min for the vid to load up, but it's worth it. Also there is no audio, but it is chilling enough without it.
So this one time I asked this girl if she was legal.... Oops.. wrong blog. =>
On Friday I was picking up some take out food at the local Chinese restaurant. A 40+ year old guy was obviously as bored as I was so we engaged in some light banter. We were talkign about food, and the pub across the street that served a decent pizza, that was next to Dominoes. Yes Dominoes serves abhorent version of what they call Pizza. At any rate, the gist of it is, he asked if I was 18, or old enough to get into the pub to order pizza if I was so inclined. I never thought I looked quite that young? Must be all that Oil of Olay I suppose. But 18?
Over the past few days, our little pride and joy has been exercising her right to emote. From heart warming smiles, or her latest game with Mom n Dad. We'll place her on a flat surface, or bed, then we'll start smiling, tickling and laughing. On Sunday we had her laughing for around 15 minutes.
It was great until my cheeks hurt from trying to laugh so long.
Oh no! All the signs are there. The drooling. The chewing on everything within reach. The breaks in nursing to chew on her fist. The sudden wakes from sleeping to cry out in pain. This wasn't supposed to happen yet! I hope this is one of those cases where the onset of symptoms happens months before the first tooth actually erupts!
