1. Milk Bomb: A baby who has a full belly of milk and isn't able to close the stomach flap (that is NOT the medical term) fully. Milk might fly at any moment... so you better watch out. Milk could exit the infant in a gurgle or with a more projectile force.
2. Milk Bum (not to be confused with term #1): A baby who has a full belly of milk and seems very satisfied. This state can be identified by the half-closed and glazed over eyes, the goofy crooked grin, and the drunken-like-state in which the baby is behaving. Mothers, this is a good sign.

When I was pregnant with H, I didn’t feel very well. There aren’t many ‘convenience’ snacks available here, but they do sell these little packs of cookies.
Needless to say, I ate a lot of these packs of cookies when I was pregnant with H.
He’s basically made of custard cookies.
Maybe that’s why he’s so sweet. Ha!

1. My boy's first laugh!! Who knew that a "guh-guh-guh" from Dad would bring out a little giggle in our baby boy? Yeah!! You can be sure that now we will spend every spare minute for the next couple days experimenting in all types of baby-talk trying to get him to reproduce that sound. Just chalk it up to proud first-time parents. You'd do the same (and some of you have, right?).
2. It's cold!! 73 degrees in the house now, and I'm freezing. Sweat pants, hoodie, even socks with my flip flops. I know... desperate times call for desperate measures. It even rained today, which is unheard of this time in the desert. And some people would chalk that up to global warming.

Well, this afternoon, I was in our courtyard and I saw a strand of cassette tape tape hanging from our tree. I think I'll go pull it down now.

So, I have decided to make my own reusable baby wipes. Turns out it's really easy, it's good for baby's skin, and it's SO cost effective. We already wash cloth diapers, so why not toss in some wipes too? I also made my own disinfecting spray for the changing table. But I will bring back some essence oils to make it smell more like citrus and less like vinegar.
I mean, who wants to load down luggage with a case of baby wipes and lysol disinfecting wipes when the space could be used to carry books, chocolate chips, or my L'oreal face creme?
Who knows what else I'll come up with in the next few days...
