  • OT, belated: New addition to the family

    It was brought to my attention in another thread that I never posted about something major that happened back in December. I don't like posting off-topic stuff, but in this case I'm happy to make an exception.

    On December 18 we welcomed little Elise into the world. Itty bitty, but healthy and cute as a button. Here she is, now, at 7 months:



    She is our third, but our first girl. It's been a really fun experience. She's the happiest baby I've ever seen, always with a smile that lights up the room. I readily admit that she already has Dad completely wrapped around her little finger.

      Wonderful, and great picture. I recently welcomed the first grandson - after two older girls. This is going to be and adventure for all of them I expect.

        Congratulations to the both of you, I have 3 also, 2 nags and one fridge raider, I hated the maternity ward more than any I've been to, scared ****less is a reasonable approximation, I would happily stand under a 500 ton ladle and sick a lance up it but my knees went to jelly in there, stress on tap.
        One nurse even gave me the gas and air, not bad either!

              A serious CONGRATULATIONS to both of you!

              RB211, seeing the one post and then a couple of hours later the product was VERY sweet. And as a model airplane builder and flier I approve the choice of swaddling...

              Hey Mars' Your little tyke is a real cutie. She's obviously coming into her own what with the keen eye she's got on you or Mom from around that soother .

                In a couple of years, it'll be "lift me up, I want to see how the lathe works."

                  When my now 7 year old daughter was cranky as a baby, one surefire cure was to fire up the lathe and make chips. It fascinated her.

                  Of course I saw this video, and it has a good solution too. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...&v=Ha-3MiVa7-Y

                      Congrats to all! Kid are a blast but grandkids are the best. Our 3 year old grandson thinks Grandma & grandpa are the best things he's ever wrapped around his finger. My wife worked in OB for years & loved it. Guy's used to bring in those huge VHS cameras to film the birth, like what are you going do invite friends for a cookout & viewing? She was the one the doctor handed the baby to & was there for several of Alis kids births. Our 2 sons were born naturally on the same day 2 years apart & I married here on her Birthday 35 years ago last week. Again Congrats! Kids are what it's all about.

                        Some days it would be more like homemade tools!

                            Congrats to both you. Kids are such a blessing and it's a miracle everyday to watch them grow, learn, love, and laugh. They really teach you about love. Crying is ok too I guess .

                            With our third child on the way I've been thinking about putting grease zerks on the fridge door ... my wife and I finally broke down and purchased a Costco membership. Friends of ours have 4 children, and they continually remind us that we are going to be outnumbered.

                              What a cutie! You still have plenty of lathes left to give them one each, so don't stop at 3 i have 2 girls and they're awesome, just not looking forward to the teen years.
