Happy birthday, Z.

Gifts await you at the house!

BTW, I'm wondering which it was that ultimately drew H to Z? I'm thinking the semi-naked gravy-dancing while playing patty-cake finally pushed her over the edge.

Honestly, it's about the geekiest story you can imagine. I'll let Z share it, if'n he wants.

Teaser: Karnor's Castle and Z being a dumbass.

I occasionally glare at Heather over this too.

Because I named them....

We have tried, but he's just awake and wants to play.

Our daughter will try to stay up and play with us all night if we were to let her. We just stick to our nightly ritual like clockwork. She then knows that after dinner, bath, hair and teeth brushing, and 3 books, it's time to go to bed. Some nights, she fusses for 10-15 minutes, but she'll drop off quickly after that.

I've also heard great things about the "No Cry Sleep Solution" book. I skimmed through it at the library, and it seems rather sane.

Cynips - I'm sorry your family is sick! Z and I have had very mild versions of what our daughter has, but not enough to completely knock us out. We're just slightly more cantankerous.

Eek! I'm so sorry!

Have you all tried moving his bedtime earlier? I know it sounds odd, but I've found that the more they sleep, the easier they sleep...

Mortified doesn't even begin to cover it. Horrifically embarassed and pissed at myself for not hiring a lawyer before hitting "OK." I'm afraid that I may have to turn in my geek badge.

To be honest, I've spent the last week wrapping my brain around sentences like "Aldosterone-mediated primary active transport of Na and the medullary gradient create the conditions for passive transport of some bicarb and chlorine and cotransport of H, K, Cl, and HCO3."

Sorry, the combination of pregnancy, finals week, and having a sick toddler forced me to make a bad "Ok" decision...

Thanks!
I doubt that telling the kids to be nice wouls have any effect though as they're 19 and 6 months old respectively. And, no, the oldest one doesn't talk more than a few words yet. (Psst, if you remove the image filename from my former link to the insect you can have a sneek peek of the little ones if you like).

Awww. They are gorgeous. Your wife is also beautiful.

I know that your kids won't necessarily understand the "be nice" request, but it puts good juju out there. Whenever Z or I leave the house, we always tell our daughter to be nice to the parent who is left in charge.

You're a good man, Cynips.

Remember to bring your wife something to drink and to encourage the children to be very nice to mommy. Because when momma ain't happy, ain't no one happy.

So is this officially now "Most Posts Ever by Heather" day? I missed the pronouncement. Or are we just finally on a topic you feel especially verbose on?

I think I've had post-ier days. However, I've been stuck in the house with a sick kiddo since Monday morning (and doing the family thing all T-day weekend), so I'm enjoying the chance to do something besides watch the freaking Wiggles and do the arm motions along with "Little Einsteins."

Cynips - we have an "alien" picture as well.

Your poor wife - I feel so bad for her that she had a rough go of it!

Hormonal headaches suck. They suck even more when combined with stress headaches from a dying mom.

We call ours "Sprout" in conversation. However, when you see the ultrasound, the boniness is quite apparent.

Alas, this hasn't been the easiest of pregnancies. I'm sure a big part of it is chasing a toddler around while trying to gestate. In addition, morning sickness has been more...permanent this go-round.

However, all of those things went poof when I saw our little Skeletor on the ultrasound screen yesterday.

Katamari Damacy (or We Love Katamari) is a lot of fun.
Syberia might be nice.
iTunes gift card wouldn't suck.
Maybe do a combo of a couple of cheaper things (Katamari + iTunes + smallish gift card to one of her fave clothing stores)

And to the person that suggested a personal toy...uh, no. Some things should just not be gifted by family, capiche?

But since we went to a Chinese restaurant w/ some friends I absolutely love the stuff, especially Sesame Chicken. Yum. I'd rather give up pizza than Chinese food now (well, Americanized Chinese food). Just have to make sure they don't add extra MSG while cooking (and yes, I stay away from teriyaki sauce).

*cough* Now who was the one who kept encouraging you to try it minus MSG? The way you wrote that, bucko, was that you were coerced by friends. You denied my persuasive powers.

Now if I can just find that one Japanese item that will blow your mind, Japanese restaurants could be next!

As for Florida, why would you want to move there? It's the bullseye that God keeps flinging hurricanes at. We get the occasional Nor'easter here and some minor flooding every now and then, but that's it.

Here's why people live in Florida:
1. Not having to own long pants or a jacket if you live in extremely South Florida.
2. Key West only gets hit by a hurricane every 70 years or so. Those are decent odds to trade off with a cold winter temp of 65 degrees.
3. No state income tax.
4. Being as far inland as possible and still only being an hour from a beach.
5. The lack of seasons is very nice. Having lived most of my life there, I'm still taken aback by this whole "Fall" concept.

I would move back to San Antonio, Texas if I could... Great weather year round (some might find it too hot in the summer, but having lived in Canada most of my life, I found the summers not so bad - do that math : ).

I lived in San Antonio for 2 years and Dallas for 4 years. The only place in Texas that I'd willingly move to would be Austin. Love the feel of the city, and the hill country is just fabulous. The humidity there doesn't bother me, especially since I grew up in Florida...
