...my womb forever says Joie's 1st child. She is packing her bags and getting ready to leave 5 weeks early.




It appears that she will be here today....




or tomorrow....




or the next day. :shrug:



Because she is so early the doctors are not going to force her to come unless something bad happens. However, she is going to come. Each day she stays put is 3-4 days less in intensive care. So I sit here and wait.:rolleyes:

So are you in a birthing room with wifi? And if so, are you going to be able to put your laptop on Joie's belly and give us play-by-play of the birth?I could in theory. But once the baby comes out the platform in which the computer would be sitting would then be less and the computer may fall to the ground.

Three things should not hit the ground during childbirth.

1. baby
2. acesn8s
3. computer

The risks are too great to give play by play.;)

As one who recently went through it... Tell her not to be a hero.. Take thebsrugs as soon as she can. You simply be there for her although nothing will seem to be enough.. In all honesty she won't even remember what you said. It fucking hurts don't tell her that though now.. Shell know soon enough. My last advice enjoy the time you have to learn from the nurses in the nicu it sucks she has to be there but it does give you both time to recover and adjust...
and FYI in about three months when she smiles on purpose you will feel as if your lives were worth nothing before this beautiful being came into your lives.

My daughter just turned 6 and it seems like she still has that look on her face about half the time. At that age, the world is still full of surprises.

Just yesterday, for instance, she came running upstairs yelling "Hey daddy, did you know Easy Off Oven Cleaner can also be used on the grill?"

True story. My wife was nursing my daughter a few hours after she was born. I came quietly into the room and whispered to my wife, "How is she doing?" My daughter spun her head around from my wife's boob (impossible, I thought), looked up at me and lifted her hand toward me. She recognized my voice, apparently. I kissed her little hand like the princess she is and she went back to sucking my wife's nipple.

I have a picture of my daughter looking at/through me the day we were bringing her home from the hospital. I know they say babies that age can't really see, but you couldn't prove it by that picture. I felt like she knew who I was from the moment she was born.

It is also fun playing with their toys with them.


When my daughter was about 2 we had this little plug in organ and she would push the keys so gently and sing and sing and sing. Was the most beautiful thing ever. Then she started playing it with her feet. We laughed so hard.

Now that she is 17 and took piano lessons for years, she won't hardly touch the damn real piano...



Oh and one time when she was about 1 and 1/2 or 2 she and her daddy were making tools with play dough and he would make something and tell her what it was ...like a hammer, a screw driver ect...

she made something that kind of looked like a sledge hammer. Daddy asked her what it was she sweetly said "its a dick rock daddy" we had to clean up spewed pepsi all over the chair. To this day we have NO idea where that came from
