Super Pooper Trooper

Sorry for the lack of updates my friends... it's been overwhelming to say the least. This one will just be a quickie but I promise there will be more to follow as soon as we get our bearings. And a couple more showers. And some more food as I am now ravenous almost constantly. And of course after a few more snuggles with the bun.


Calvin gave me this in exchange for this ....


Going Home

Introducing Freyja Marguerite Drover.

Freyja is pronounced Fray-ah. Just say it fast & don't think about the j. If you want some info (mildly cheesy in a Lord of the Rings kind of way) on where her name comes from go here. Basically the goddess of love & beauty. Marguerite is Calvin's mother's name and means "pearl". Drover... "driver of herds to the village". So she's a beautiful pearl of a girl who likes farm animals.

She's a real cutie-putootie & very snuggly. She likes to make impressions of purring kittens & velocirapters. She loves to sleep and can be very hard to wake up to feed, but once she's on the boob there's no coming off, much to the chagrin of my poor nipples. (Thanks for the lansinoh Katherine!!!) She loves the swing & to be swaddled up tight like a burrito. Diaper changing - not so much, hence the velocirapter noises. When she's awake she looks around & checks us out in wonder at "what these silly giants are & why are they making silly noises at me?" kind of way.

I'll let you all know about the labour ordeal later when I wrap my head around how to tell it. Let's just say the induction drugs were "manageable" up to 7cm & then the aneasthesiologist became my good buddy. This was eventually followed by 2 solid hours of pushing, with only 1 of those actually doing anything productive. Eventually she came out (with no tearing!!! i can't believe it!) & proceeded to take the biggest crap - all over her new mommy. It was love at first poop & first sight.

Daddy couldn't be happier with his new little bun & mum is recovering pretty well, but we both need a little more sleep (ya fat chance eh?) & then we'll share her with the rest of the world. Thank you all so much for your support & wonderful comments - they really mean a hell of lot to us & it wouldn't have been the same without them. We love you guys!

Hey guys!
Congratulations. She is beautiful with a name that matches. Great photos. That gold medal is hilarious.

I hope you will soon you be equally deserving of a medal for the "Master of Power Naps".
Love, Jody

She's so cute!!!! I love the name too. Wish I could come to the open house. I'm in Toronto -- so close, it's tempting!

Enjoy her

Love Karen
