The Durty Baby Whisperer

The Durty Baby Whisperer strikes again!

Something I DO NOT miss about being pregnant

The last few weeks of pregnancy, my belly was huge. It was so huge, it was a challenge to put on pants. I ended up putting my legs ninety degrees to each other to put my pants on. Imagine the acrobatics involved in this exercise.

Stinky, this one is for you

Ava is smiling.
My baby smiles.
It is like sunlight and joy.

A haiku.

Here We Go

Y'all want this party started? Right?

Y'all want this party started ... quickly! Right?

Ava is over partying. Notice her Hello Kitty sunglasses.


Just now, Lola started barking. It is the "danger, Will Robinson, danger" bark. I looked out and saw nothing. No cats, people, Fedex guys. I looked up. There was a blimp overhead. Lola protects us from blimps.

Good Dog.

Armpit Head

Last night, yohboh decided to put Ava next to him while sleeping. He was not wearing a shirt and she was nestled under his armpit. This morning, when I kissed her little face I got a whiff of Daddy's B.O.

Armpit Head

Broken Glass

Last night, the wind was so strong that our patio table was knocked over. The sheet of glass that is on top of it broke into about a million pieces. Yohboh cleaned it up before the wind kicked it up.

Yohboh used the shop vac.

Twins and Hospitality

Can you tell the difference? Exact same arm placement.

Y'all come back now ya hear?

Melancholy Drunk

My baby now wears size two diapers.

I began to tear up about this, and yohboh called me a melancholy drunk.

Designer Ava

Ava is wearing a lovely spring dress with matching knickers from the Ralph Lauren 2006 Spring collection. I had to put it on before Ava outgrew it.

This Face

This face has many names:

This face makes Minjenah
Break out in a sweat
Boobs start to FLOOD
Give Ava whatever Ava wants.

Fortunately, she mainly wants boob milk.

Also, Ava is rocking a mullet.

Lola and Ava

Lola gave Ava kisses today.

I would have taken a picture, but Lola is scared of the camera.

Superdad and the Hair Twister

It's a bird!
It's a plane!
It's Superdad!
Able to change a poopy diaper with a single wipe.
Actually, Yohboh is wearing the infant carrier.

She twists her hair when she is thinking.


Ava observes her feet for the first time

Evil Mastermind

I alone possess the power of the DAHHHK SIDE.



Looks like she is about to say "No, I don't THINK so."

My cutie

She makes little fists when she sleeps

At six weeks old.

Something that makes Ava vomit

Ava vomits when Mommy washes her hair. Ava does not like Mommy's hair to smell like anything but sour milk.

Ava in a Kung Fu Shirt

My mother has tried unsuccessfully to tame her hair. It sticks up all over the place, like Daddy's. Also, her face looks like Blue Steel.

Ava in a wifebeater.


Ava is thirteen pounds one ounce.

At six weeks old.

She wears SHORTS

She likes short shorts. She wears short shorts.

Whatyoutalkinbout mommy? (think Arnold, Different Strokes)

Ava the adorable




I wish I would fucking heal already. I still have problems where Dr. Roid jammed me in the back so sometimes holding my baby cannot happen.

Beer and Sex or Sex and Beer

I have found that drinking one beer increases milk production and helps the baby sleep.

I drink the beer, breastfeed and she sleeps for six hours.

Yohboh and I had sex for the first time since I delivered. I was dreading it, but it was quite nice. The reason I was dreading it was during my exam this week the freaking speculum hurt so bad, I cried.

Ava smiles in her sleep

See Stinky, she does too smile

Hippie Ava

As a tribute to her hippie side


I went to bed after Yohboh and I am up earlier than he is.

I am going to go back to sleep.

I hope yohboh takes care of the baby for a few hours so I can get sleep.

I remember what Rebecca Wells said in Divine Secrets of Ya-Ya Sisterhood. "I crave sleep, it is like warm French bread"

I too crave sleep, it is like my idea of dark chocolate truffles.

Strike a pose

Looking smug and bundled, reminds me of Angelina Jolie, for some reason

A Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, there was a little baby named Ava. She was a well loved baby, but she was cranky.

Cranky Ava

One day, a magical figure came into Cranky Ava's world. He was the Durty Baby Whisperer.

Durty Baby Whisperer

Ava no longer was cranky and slept peacefully.

Ava, who looks like Elvis, sleeping.

The End

Links I just read

Ewww, I am all for the environment but I will NEVER give up this.

Yohboh name ten more than I did so I am pissed.

A hundred years ago, did they have toilet paper?

I played this game for an hour as opposed to napping. Addicting.

Snorted with laughter, I did.
