Breastfeeding is Bestfeeding.

Today Ivy was again entranced with Sam’s method of feeding the baby.  She crawled up and asked lots of questions.

“Dylan eating a apple?”

“No honey, Dylan is drinking milk.”

Dylan drinking a milk?”

“Yes honey….”

And on and on over and over.

Sam says “Big mouth Dylan” while she encourages her to latch well, instead of having a lazy mouth.  Ivy of course, starts repeating it.

“Dylan got big mouth?” “Big mouth Dylan?”  “Dylan drinking milk?”

“Yes honey.”

She looks up at Sam suddenly serious and aks “Mom, got juice in there too?”

We both started laughing uncontrollably while we explained that there was not, in fact, any juice in there.  And I just thought I might share that awesome moment of parenthood with the rest of you.

Today’s Comic of Most Awesome Awesomeness.   xkcd of course.

happy non-denominational cupidy mass-market holiday

I’ve been sending Sam lolcards.  You need to check these out.  I haven’t sent any to anyone who isn’t sami, so don’t get sad that I didn’t think of you.

PS.  Did I mention these things are hawesome?

The sweetest thing..

This is the sweetest thing I’ve ever found on youtube.

Thanks to a link at Jonathan Coulton’s blog (see two posts ago, I’m too lazy to link again).

The video…

of the ending song in Portal. Not the cover by cupcakesandtea, you can find the link to that in my last post. I should find a video of actual gameplay for those who haven’t had a chance to check out this amazing game.

Lyrics below the video.

This was a triumph.
I’m making a note here:
It’s hard to overstate
my satisfaction.
Aperture Science
We do what we must
because we can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there’s no sense crying
over every mistake.
You just keep on trying
till you run out of cake.
And the Science gets done.
And you make a neat gun.
For the people who are
still alive.

I’m not even angry.
I’m being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a pyre.
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!
Now these points of data
make a beautiful line.
And we’re out of beta.
We’re releasing on time.
So I’m GLaD. I got burned.
Think of all the things we learned
for the people who are
still alive.

Go ahead and leave me.
I think i prefer to stay inside.
maybe you’ll find someone else
to help you.
maybe Black Mesa…
Anyway this cake is great.
It’s so delicious and moist
look at me still talking when theres science to do
when i look out there
it makes me glad I’m not you
i’ve experiments to run
there is research to be done
on the people who are
still alive.

and believe me I am still alive
I’m doing science and I’m still alive
i feel fantastic and I’m still alive
while your dying ill be still alive
and when your dead i will be still alive
still alive
still alive

Solve for X

I wonder if the “ten second tidy” on Big Comfy Couch is really a good idea.  I mean, Ivy likes it, and is starting to go through her cleaning phase.  We hear lots of “Clean up, Clean up, Clean up, Clean up” when we remind her she’s made a mess.

However, Loonette the clown seems to believe that tucking everything back into the couch is a good version of a tidy. (I beg to differ)

Combine that with Ivy’s new interest in television, and interaction (Go, Diego, Go and Hi-5 are her current favourites) and you get a formula like the following:

TST+Ivy(TV + Interest x Copying+ Interacting)/Couch = X

Solve for X where TST = Ten Second Tidy

I think the only thing we’re going to get out of this is a couch full of treasures.

A thought….

I start lots of projects, but I never seem to finish anyth
