Not surprised he is yawning. We only slept about 3 hours last night. Bret says he has my mouth.

Back seat

Just getting cozy in the back seat with my babies. Joyce refused to nap on schedule. John, however, napped extra long. He only woke when he had to get naked at the doctor's. He is up past his birth weight - now at 9'5". Height is up to 22" and head is 38 cm. 

Sibling love

Joyce just can't get enough of her new brother. Last night they even coordinated their middle of the night wakings. Only once did they overlap so much that I needed Bret's help. That was because John was not going back to sleep easily. Instead he decided to fill two diapers right in a row.

My new baby is sleeping. Which means I can sleep now. He is officially a week old. Nine o'clock last Wednesday night he "sprang from my womb." As I like to describe the 24 hour labor resulting in a c-section.

Joyce's latest talent (and I guess mine since I've never uploaded a video before). I should admit, though, that I didn't take the video - my sister Laurie did. I'm not quite that talented yet. Baby steps.

we took advantage of the spring like weather and visited the park this morning. We were on our way home from getting a flu shot and it seemed like a good reward for enduring the shot. She only shed one tear and her cry lasted less than ten seconds. We both loved the park though. This was her first time on a swing. I loved hearing her laugh. 


Joyce got a new toy from her friend Maggie (Plewe's daughter). She loves it. So does Bret for that matter.

Soy yogurt

I finally made soy yogurt! I also made coconut yogurt. That one does not taste or look as good, though. I am happy to have yogurt back in my life!

Today at play group my friend kiirsten gave me two guayaberas for baby #2 who should be here in a month. I was especially touched because my dad used to wear them and today is his birthday.
