Babies R Us

Well I have officially been outposted by the family blog-nazis. It is hard to compete when you are STILL STAYING AT THE HOSPITAL with a recuperating wife. Anyway, well done blog-nazis, well done. I think you both got some quality material.

The birth of baby number three has really got me thinking. A nurse at the hospital called our kids Irish triplets, but all I could come up with in response was, "We're not Irish, we're Scottish" which illustrated that I missed her point completely. All of Ryley's primary friends call me "Ryley's dad" and I guess that is kind of the price of having kids...you lose your identity and become..... what? I am not sure.

Ryley's quote of the week, through tearstained lips: "Maybe you're not such a nice papa after all." Since I have been home all week, I have had to step up my disciplinarian game (I am used to coming home from work and being the "fun" parent) because Kate is busy nursing and sleeping and all that new mom stuff. I think Ryley likes me better as the fun guy too.

PS I have a newfound respect for what my sweetheart does every day. Our kids can be CRAZY!!

Irish triplets means to have three children in two years. I looked it up on wikipedia, otherwise I wouldn't have had a clue either. The nurse, I guess, thought that you and Kate like to make babies and make them often. Which is fine of course because the babies you guys make sure are cute!

I don't know why people think that having kids two years apart is super quick or whatever. I mean, I realize Ben isn't quite two yet, but dude, y'all don't want to be chidbearing forever! My kids are spaced exactly 30 months apart (by accident) and people act like that's SO many kids in SO little time. I simply point them toward my mother, bless her crazy little heart, who had four kids under three. And also lost her mind.

Belated congratulations on your really beautiful baby. I loved this post, especially Ryley's quote. I love precocious little girls. And good on you for appreciating your wife--life with three little kids at home is CRAZY. Love & miss you guys...

All egress from my chamber, except http://storyah44.info/bielizna+sexowna.html through a window, was cut off.. Excellent boy! http://wowyesaf.info/reporterskim+okiem.html said his mother.. But the http://startso11.info/karkulator.html Colonel's colloquial speech was apt to be fragmentary incoherencies of his larger oratorical utterances.. The widow knew how to run a farm successfully, and a large farm is not much more difficult to run than one http://startso11.info/szwalnia+chojn%C3%B3w.html of half the size.. John Sanks became sheriff, and rewarded with a http://startso11.info/WIO%C5%9A.html deputyship some important special service rendered by him in the late very close canvass.. Indeed, I wonder, when I think that a sensible people like ours--really more attached to their http://startso11.info/fotka+mak%C3%B3w+maz.html clergy than they were in the lost days, when the Mathers and Nortons were noblemen--should choose to neutralize so much of their ministers' lives, and destroy so much of their early training, by this undefined passion for seeing them in public.. Fluker, admitting in her heart that farming was not her husband's forte, hoped, like a http://startso11.info/www.esa.truck.pl.html true wife, that it might be found in the new field to which he aspired.. I soon notice that it http://startso11.info/www.aniuusiaa199.html is an advantage to break up the dream into its elements, and to search out the ideas which link themselves to each fragment.. Dar, now! http://startso11.info/osrodek+kwp+w+miedzyzdrojach.html What'd I tell you? I knowed dat baby done be plum growed up.. Methought he stood at the foot of the http://startso11.info/torrent.fun.html couch, drew aside the curtains, and in the hollow, detestable tones of a rum puncheon, menaced me with the bitterest vengeance for the contempt with which I had treated him.. 'Gad, sir, you must be mighty sweet on http://storyah44.info/reno+5+super.html the ladies.. Like her mother, http://rebestal.info/cheap4ferries.html she was plainly dressed; unlike her, she had a pale, rather refined face, with a demure mouth and downcast eyes.. Physically there was nothing the matter with him; he could have passed his rigid http://startso11.info/bilans.html insurance scrutiny as easily as he had done months before, when his life and health had been insured for a sum that made good copy for his press-agent.. We learn that the repression which, though originally http://startso11.info/www.job.pl.html expedient, terminates nevertheless in a harmful rejection of inhibition and of psychic domination, is so much more easily accomplished with reminiscences than with perceptions, because in the former there is no increase in occupation through the excitement of the psychic sensory organs.. For my part, I believe that in all civilized countries the upper classes of people are very much alike, http://startso11.info/polbank.pl.html at least in their leading characteristics.. There is, firstly, the psychical significance of the dream, its position with regard to the psychical processes, as to a possible biological function; secondly, has the dream a meaning--can sense be made http://startso11.info/barcellona.html of each single dream as of other mental syntheses? Three tendencies can be observed in the estimation of dreams.. will be ready to resist the http://startso11.info/Regulamin+EKG+ONZ+nr+13.html attacks of blackmail, continued Hotchkiss, retreating along the passage.. Watkinson, said http://startso11.info/szkolenia+bran%C5%BCowe.html Caroline Morland.. For he contended, perhaps with justice, that no man in the responsible position he http://startso11.info/TopMarket.html was about to take ought to be expected to go about, or sit about, or even lounge about, without even a continental red in his pocket.. He was surprised, however, on opening the door of his private office to find his visitor already there; he was still more startled to find her somewhat past middle http://startso11.info/choroba+skory.html age and plainly attired...

Otherwise we could not explain the fact of our being always awakened by stimuli of http://startso11.info/on.html certain quality.. His weakness lay in http://startso11.info/Ostrow+Mazowiecka-sklepy.html the very nature of his art.. In the second http://rebestal.info/chopin+lotnisko.html place, I could have no breeches until I came across the crow.. She reproaches her mother for wanting her to live as though she had no genital, and recognizes this reproach in http://startso11.info/www+inwencja+2007.pl.html the introductory sentence of the dream; the mother sends away her little one so that she must go alone.. Which one that management http://startso11.info/terowanie.html might become was a matter of future detail.. She gazed complacently at the flaming foliage opposite, and http://startso11.info/WEJCHEROWO.html allowed him to think.. I am more confident on this point because at the end of the year http://startso11.info/EHOSONDA.html those hands were joined inseparably by the preacher.. He waited full a minute as he surveyed the http://rebestal.info/centrum+medyczne+gizinscy+bydgoszcz.html man of business.. I want http://startso11.info/Miejski+Dom+Kultury+w+O%C5%BCarowie+k%2FOstrowca+%C5%9Bw..html him to speak a speech.. He laughed when the Florida partridge, a small quail, whirred up from under his feet; he paused to exchange affectionate mockery with red squirrels; and once, even when he was brought up suddenly to a familiar and ominous, dry reverberation, the small, crisp sound of the rolling drums of death, he did not look about him for some instrument of destruction, as at any other time he http://startso11.info/movano.html would have done, but instead peered cautiously over the log before him, and spoke in tolerant admonition: Now, Misteh Rattlesnake, yo' jes min' yo' own business.. The act of birth, moreover, is the first experience with fear, and is thus the source and model of the emotion of http://startso11.info/grafoman.html fear.. Tears and sulky faces, and impotent fists doubled fiercely when his back was turned, were the rewards of his conscientiousness; and the boys--and girls too--were glad when working time came round again, and the master went home to help his father on the http://startso11.info/ekoznwstwo.html farm.. Podington stumbled to the bow of the boat, his efforts greatly impeded by the big cork life-preserver tied under his arms, and the motion of the boat was so violent and erratic that he was obliged to hold on to the mast with one arm and to try to loosen the knot http://startso11.info/banklandsbankinn.html with the other; but there was a great strain on the rope, and he could do nothing with one hand.. Oh! Of course not! he blundered, and went back to the woodshed. http://storyah44.info/bobbs+germany.html. Other stories of his deserving of special mention are: A Corner in Farmers (February, 29, 1908, Saturday Evening Post ), A Fortune in Smoke (March 14, 1908, Saturday Evening Post ), Easy Money (November 14, 1908, Saturday Evening Post ), The Triple Cross (December 5, 1908, Saturday Evening Post ), Spoiling the Egyptians (December 26, 1908, Saturday Evening Post ), Whipsawed! (January 16, 1909, Saturday Evening Post ), The Bubble Bank (January 30 and February 6, 1909, Saturday Evening Post ), Straight Business (February 27, 1909, Saturday Evening Post ), Sam Turner: a Business Man's Love Story (March 26, April 2 and 9, 1910, Saturday Evening Post ), Fundamental Justice http://startso11.info/komurki.html (July 25, 1914, Saturday Evening Post ), A Scropper Patcher (October, 1916, Everybody's ), and Jolly Bachelors (February, 1918, Cosmopolitan ).. Most of the company rolled http://startso11.info/Bank+Sp%C3%B3%C5%82dzielczy+w+sicienku.html upon the floor in convulsions of laughter.. Till this moment, indeed, that is http://startso11.info/telekomunjkacja+.pl.html the impression in Naguadavick.. It entered the http://startso11.info/produkcja+kostki+brukowej.html lungs, and in a few days killed him.. It was exactly as I http://storyah44.info/playboy+samochod+roku.html had expected.. The dream element truly represents all this disparate matter http://startso11.info/www.pudzian..pl.html in the dream content...
