In Need of a Good Laugh?

It's Friday so you should already be happy, but if you just need a good laugh after a long hard week then watch these cutie pies!

Thank you Hoda and Kathie Lee for sharing this--I've become addicted to their morning show!

A-Fraud: Once a Cheater...

Always a Cheater.

At least in my book. What's the saying..."Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!"

As I watched his Yeah-I-cheated-but-won't-say-the-word-cheating press conference I forgot all about him cheating on his wife too. What a winner.

I must preface this post by saying that even though I am a Red Sox fan true and true, I'm also a fan of the game of baseball. I love the sport, I love reading about the old time players like Ted Williams, Lou Gehrig and Sandy Koufax, Mickey Mantle, and Dom and Joe DiMaggio. Until now I held Alex Rodriguez as the best player in the game today, even though he seems to curse every team of which he has been a part in the postseason, when it counts the most. I like to call it the Curse of the A-Rod!

I'll have to finish this post later since Thomas is waking up. If you're reading this on Facebook you'll have to click on View Original Post.

3 Months Old

Long time no post, I know.
I've been under the weather since the beginning of January off and on, and it's been so annoying. At first, Thomas did not catch my cough and runny nose, and I was quite pleased. Perhaps the breastfeeding immunities worked their magic...

But then The Hub got sick, probably from germy work, and then Thomas caught it too. Like so many others this winter we cannot shake this stupid sickness for the life of us. Just when you think you're starting to get better the cough comes back almost mocking you. Annoying crappy thing. I just feel bad for the baby when he coughs (though his is improving faster than ours) b/c he doesn't understand.

Speaking of the baby--he's getting so big! I attribute this to the natural progression of babies to grow, but also his healthy appetite! He definitely takes after his Daddy in that respect. The bf'ing was hard at first, but now it's a piece of cake thanks to a one-on-one consult with Lactation Care in Newton. They are AWESOME!! It was the best $110 we spent on Thomas and I'm so happy to say that ever since that visit (Jan 2nd) he has been exclusively having Mom's Homecooking ;-) When I can find the time I will definitely give them a glowing review on It's a small woman-owned business, and I actually got to meet with Dot, the founder of the company, who I attribute to be a wise Saint! She's great and they have follow-up phone calls with you as well to make sure you and baby have a good working bf'ing relationship. It really is an skill both of you have to learn; and don't underestimate the father's role as well, at least in the very beginning. Dad's have duties too to help it work. We both went to the bf'ing class at Beth Israel with other couples before we were discharged from the hospital even though we both assumed he need not attend. Not only are there ways for husbands and s/os to help, but it's good on the mom's sleep deprived brain for remembering what you learn at the class. Parenthood is definitely a team effort!

For some reason the pics won't flip like I have them saved, but I don't have time to figure out calls!

**Yay! With the Paint expertise of The Hub, it's fixed!
