and while we're on the topic of people irritating me...
last sunday we walked up the street to our town's farmer's market. it was a warm day so i made sure mischa had sun block and a sun hat on. she was also in her stroller with the hood over her. while looking at some fruit, this woman came up to me and asked if i needed sun block for my baby because she "had some in her purse." i told her no thank you, i already put some on her. i glanced down to see if she looked red and nope, pale as can be. she said "oh, i'm a mom so it's just a mom thing." i looked her straight in the eye and said "yeah, i'm a mom too." like she's the only mother in the world who ever thought of putting sun block on her child! she probably assumed i was the nanny or older sister or something. you know what happens when people assume.... ;)
So here's my question. I've already thanked the Vendor, it's been at least a month since it was given, do I tell him that it didn't work? I wasn't expecting any kind of "gift" to begin with. Or do I just let it go? I don't know how much was on the card, so I don't know if its appropriate to mention it to him.
With my nipple still in his mouth.
Of course it's hard to be angry when he's got such a shit-eating grin on his face while he does it.... like he KNOWS what he's doing is wrong and just doesn't care... LOL.
can anyone describe for me how I would go about updating our user info page table, which has the names and births of some of our babies, but is missing many of them?
a couple of questions about tags-- didn't another mod say she was going to tag entries? I try to add the tags when I think of it and have time, but I know there are many entries that are missing tags. Is there a reason why only mods can tag?
also-- is there an easy way to combine tags, or if we want to do that, do we need to go through all the individual entries? I'm thinking that it is better to just have "birth announcement" rather than that as well as "birth announcements". There are a few things like that that I'd like to change.
Finally, a number of entries are tagged birth announcement, but they are also birth stories. Should I make a separate tag so that we can find birth stories easily, or is that not useful b/c we are all done giving birth and don't need to go back and find birth stories?
Does anyone else in the community have housekeeping concerns? Let me/us know, and maybe we can fix them!
Here they are, when Anya was only 3 days old!! Oh my has she grown and changed!

I won't get into full birth story details right now. Dylan was born March 12th at 3:05 a.m. He was 9 lbs. 6 oz. at birth and 20.5 inches long! Yes, he was a big boy and still is. He's currently 10 weeks and 12 lbs., 23 inches long. In my opinion, I've never seen a better looking baby, but I'm biased.
I look forward to being here and seeing the other pictures. :)
