Too much squabbling at the breakfast table got Mr. P banished to the back porch, from whence he recently reported, "I just encountered a fly! It tried to take my bagel! I think it's going to go get a lot of flies and take my bagel away. An army of flies."
A good reason to develop a hands-free nursing technique is to be able to eat cake in a civilized two-handed manner while nursing. My preference is to be mostly reclined in bed and drape the baby across my rib cage on his tummy. Baby has to be alert and hold his head up to latch on, but then he can fall asleep and let his head loll sideways on my chest. Relaxing for everyone. Plus cake.
Lump has his first very own stuffed animal, an adorable knight-bestridden* horse. Shmoogie is a scoach jealous and we are quite curious, because this gift horse came with no name attached. If you know who we have to thank, please share. :)
* bestridden is totally the past participle of bestride. I looked it up to make sure.
