My new niece is born!  She was 8 lbs and some ounces, (I don't know, I'm not that good of an aunt.)  She has thick black feathery hair.  She's adorable! (for a newborn which, let's face it, newborns aren't all that cute.)

Here she is with her big sister:

Big sister, Sidney, is not all that impressed.  The novelty of having a new sister wore off really fast when the baby pooped and everyone made a big deal about it.  Nobody thinks it's all that great when Sidney craps her pants anymore so I suppose she is thinking, What's the big deal, I do that every day?  When I came to the hospital shortly after the momentous crappy diaper, I said, "What do you think of your sister?" and she said, "Baby stinks." 

Beth still hasn't decided on a name so we've been calling her Gargamel.  She is going to wait until tomorrow because she is so drugged up and loopy and exhausted right now.  She was scheduled to have a c-section this morning at 8 am, but went into labor last night and went through several hours of contractions until they brought her into the operating room around 3:30.  Fun!  So she's had no sleep, pain, been cut practically in half, had a person removed from her abdomen, and had her fundus massaged repeatedly.  If you don't know what that is, believe me when I tell you that nothing makes you want to punch a nurse in the face as much as when they massage your fundus after a c-section.  I wouldn't even want my fundus massaged on a normal day, much less on a surgery day.  Leave my fundus alone!


  1. The photo is cute! "Baby stinks!" is so funny!

  2. That baby has a full head of hair! Does she have teeth and a driver's license too?

    Congratulations auntie! Please learn the proper weight so that you can fix the family birth pool to work out in your favor.

  3. Congratulations Beth! I could recount my horror story of my c-section...but I won't...Here's to health and happiness!

  4. Congrats on the new niece. And for avoiding having your fundus massaged. (Note to self: look up fundus immediately...)

  5. What a cutie! She already has more hair than I do...

  6. Yeah, she's very cute and her hair is so thick. Like you say Anne, it's thicker than ours. DG, she does not have a driver's license. I looked in her purse and found nothing. She wouldn't open her mouth for me to see if she had teeth.

    They named her Millie. Isn't that cute!

    Oh, and it was 8 lbs 2 ounces.

  7. Fucking abortion, man. I keep telling you but you don't listen. When did the fetus become a person? Oh after its born.


I would love your comments.
