Almost done

I have something like 7 more days before I'm done with my Master's degree. I'm only telling you because my brain has no room for current events or the analysis needed to determine if something is classy, tacky, or stupid.

Ok, maybe I'm telling you because I'm freakin' excited to finish...that is when I allow myself to think about non-school things.

Maybe when I'm done I'll blog. Every. Single. Day.

Poop is funny

We didn't expect that Hannah's poop is one of the things that would make us laugh the most over the last few weeks. Here are the top three highlights that made us almost pee our pants from laughing so much.....

1. Projectile poop: At 4:00am Josh was changing her diaper and she took the opportunity to releive herself. If went flying out landed on Josh's arm and on the floor. I have never heard that kind of scream from Josh or seen him jump backwards so fast to avoid it.

2. Wait I'm not done yet: Again Josh was changing her and she just kept going...He had to stand there and wait about 5 minnutes while she layed on the changing pad finishing her business. Everytime he tried to move her more came out. Add to the picture that I was in the rocking chair pumping. We wondered how our lives had changed so quickly!

3. First real bath: Our first real bath involved her both peeing and pooping in the water. Impressive because the bath only lasted about 5 minutes. Kind of defeats the the goal of getting clean in the bath.

We are coming to Michigan in 2 weeks and will see you guys then.....

Random rant

Does ANYONE have a productive, healthy relationship with saran wrap? I mean, it's the most frustrating product in my kitchen. It makes me so crazy I avoid it. I go out of my way to use a plastic bag or (better yet) a reusable container instead.

So, you may be wondering, why the rant today? It's WATERMELON. One of the only adequate uses of fucking (did that for our blog rating!) saran wrap is to cover the end of a freshly cut watermelon with the oddly not-sticky-but-clingy plastic wrap. BUT don't expect your watermelon to be "sealed"...NOOOOO, all of the not-sticky-but-clingy properties of the saran wrap have been used up during the unrolling process because the saran wrap only STICKS TO ITSELF. ARGH!

I loathe thee.

Baby mania!

Wow! kat and I must have 6 really good friends who are expecting (or new parents, Strangela and that guy who is to remain nameless), so we have been learning along with everyone. One of the most important decisions and eagerly awaited announcements is what to name the baby. I have been thinking about this and trying to come up names that I might gift to a young one.

I've been trying to come up with a name that isn't "out there," but isn't boring. I don't want to be too weird with the spelling, knowing how that feels from personal experience. But I have decided one way to go is to find a name where you haven't met anyone that shares that name. No baggage to deal with then. The other palatable option seems to be to find an old name and recycle it, but nothing too old.

How did all of you parents (or parents-to-be) figure out the name to bestow on your offspring?

Night three at home

First night home bearable, second night home really good, third night home scary and loud.... We saw a new side to Hannah last night - angry, and it turns out hungry Hannah. The pediatrician thinks I am not producing enough milk to keep her full. Hence her lack of weight gain and constant crying last night. I think we have turned the corner this afternoon and she is actually sleeping peacefully for the first time in 18 hours. Looks like we may have to consider our options besides just breastfeeding.

Aside from that, things are going well and this has certainly been a crazy, amazing couple of days.

Oh yeah - we got a congratulations email from Mr. Kaufman. Josh had included Mr. Whitwell on the mass email who then forwarded it to him. I haven't talked to him since the GL alumni band!
