To the tune of What a Wonderful World

I see geese at the pond...

Ripe strawberries too... I put them in a bowl... for me and me.
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

I see daddies snuggle... on the couch.
It's Father's Day... lucky guy. (grouch rhymes but he's not a grouch.)
And I think to myself... what a wonderful world.

The noodles on the counter... whole wheat yes indeed.
Are also made with cookie cutters to help my Liz Liz feed.
I see days at the park...with rain boots on...
I forgot the camera... and our phone was gone.

...And you thought I was done talking about Sam and Liz

Sad (also note the crutch in the background. Tiny tim is gone to work.)

"Ho ho ho... green giant."

Some people get a puppy that their children grow up with. I have a sunflower.

Sam had his 2 month appointment.

Weight 90th percentile.
Height 90th percentile. (It was easy to remember.)
Head 42nd percentile. (He takes after his dad. :)

I didn't post my second child's birth info or anything like that. Mostly because it all got posted on Facebook. Sometimes when you have to prioritize, you have to make decisions about what gets your attention and what doesn't.

Samuel Victor Hirschi
Born April 13, 2011 Mckay Dee Hospital
8 lbs 11 oz
20.5 in.

What can I say about his labor and delivery. It was pretty good actually. The only pain that I felt was when I was changing positions and wasn't relaxed. He came out en caul, that is to say he had the sac still on him, when he was born. I talked with my doctor about it, and she says that it is extremely rare for a larger baby to be born this way. They try to get smaller babies out like that because it's a cushion for them, but with the big babies, the pressure from pushing usually pops the sac and sprays the dr and nurses. :) It isn't pushing per se in Hypnobirthing, but more of a breathing technique, so it didn't pop.

Sam's been a good baby. He loves to be touched and held.
