I *heart* Cows

Min over at MamaDrama talks about cows sometimes. And I like this. Because I like cows.

Wanna see how much?

This cow is known as "!SOCKCOW!" You gotta say it all fast and kung-fu like.

This one I bought at Tweetsie Railroad. I call it "Gheebie." Don't ask. I don't know why. It's just Gheebie.

Teapot from my dad and stepmom...

Flashlight from Joe. It moos when you turn it on. It kinda looks like a hippo in cow's clothing.

Moos when you turn it on...hehehehehe

Another gift from Joe. We found this at the antique mall downtown. It moos, too...when you remove its head. I get a kick of of the expression on its face.

Oh, how I adore my cow creamer. Gift from Nadine. If you look closely, you can see where I have lovingly glued her back together, several times. Because I'm clumsy like that.

And finally...our wedding cake.

You'd think with all that love for cows, I would refrain from eating them.

No can do.

Gratuitous Baby Video

Jackson. Hiccups. And a round baby belly.

Over at MamaDrama, I was tipped off to Vicki's blog. Check out the view from the front door, er...doors...

And here's ours.

What you can't see are the hundreds of chunks of ice in the yard that fell from the trees all night, pummelling the roof and freaking Seth out to no end.

Gratuitous baby photo:

Oh my GOD we made a cute bebe.

So, I caved in to the itty bitty, teeny baby. I let him sleep on me. All night. My philosophy has been for him to sleep in his crib, not in my bed. I am no where CLOSE to being a co-sleeper. But. Jackson seems to absolutely HATE his crib. And I must sleep. So I compromised. We slept on the sofa. And sleep we did.

Any comments about how tired I look will be kept to yourselves, thankyouverymuch.

I caught just a bit of the Golden Globes, and loved the bit I caught. And after reading the account of the show at Dooce, I must watch the entire show. Bravo replays it tomorrow...JOY. Tonite..."What Not to Wear." Sunday...SAINTS IN THE PLAYOFFS, BITCHES!!!! YAH!!!!

Did ya'll know that Daylight Savings Time is a month earlier this year? Did ya'll know the joy this brings to me?

Note to self: Drink regular coffee only after a meal. Not before. Too. Much. Stimulation.

Jeanne, thought of you this fine morning. "I Write the Songs" came on the radio. Your love of Barry Manilow is one of the things I love most about you. And I wanted to tell you that.

Love us or hate us

Inspired by Stuff on my Cat and Chuck.

Joe and I are bad, and are headed straight to hell.

12, 3, and 6

I think the fog has lifted.

The fog of newborn newness.

Last night, I actually got three hours of sleep. THREE. Thank you GOD. Jackson was nursing every hour or two, for two weeks. And packing on the pounds. He is already at 8 lbs., 9 ozs. He's got that fat little baby belly that looks like a loaf of bread. Much love and thanks to Laura, for coming to help for two days. She got to experience the sleep deprivation fog we've been living in.

Things are starting to feel normal again. Hormones have calmed themselves down. I am almost back to 100% Heather. My body lets me know when I overdo it, but pain? Gone. It is amazing to me that a month ago, I had major surgery, and today, I feel fine.

BooBoo is awake...gotta run...

Hi everybody!

I just wanted to let ya'll know that all is well over here. I am well fed. I eat every hour, hour and a half, during the night. Mom said something about her nipples falling off. I don't understand.

I am hungry again. Must. Eat.

Will update more when my hunger subsides just a bit...

Baby Kisses~
