18 weeks. My anatomy scan is scheduled for the 28th. I'm hoping for team pink, but at this point it could be a dung beetle for all I care, as long as it vacates apartment Aimee by week 40. Not a day longer or I'm pulling it out myself.
*I meant calcium! I realized my error after I went to bed, and almost couldn't sleep. Apparently the loss of a significant amount of brain function is also a pregnancy symptom...

Since Uncle Josh wasn't able to spend Christmas with us, I promised to share the video of Mads opening his gift:
Madelynn sure loves the repetitive screeching of Pooh as he tells her over and over and over and over again that Piglet is under the heart key. She also loves the fact that there is no volume control, off switch or any possible way on the planet to turn off a song once it has started. As for me... well I alternate between longing to shove a salad fork through my eardrums, and fantasizing about the day when I am able to buy your kiddos Christmas presents. I will show you no mercy. Thanks, Josh and Jen! :)

I was cutting the pear FIRST! Madewinn stole my knife! NO, NO, NO, Madewinn. I don't WANT anymore tea! No, Mya! No, Madewinn! Gabey! Gabey!
On Sunday, I babysat Gabe and Mya for the day. Aside from the constant "I was playing with that first!" and Madelynn's refusal to do anything nap related, everyone did a fantastic job. They're really great kids. Mya did have a short episode (full blown kicking, screaming, rubber legs tantrum) when I tried to wash her hands after peeing. I guess I could have just let her go to avoid it all, but something told me that girl's hands just weren't the cleanest...
It was a fabulous day and everyone had fun. I may stop procreating after this next one though.
Mads steals a sip from his tiny cup:

Where are their clothes? They came with clothes, full outfits even. Apparently Madelynn has deemed all clothing inappropriate for her baby dolls, and not only did she undress them, but she also hid their clothes to keep her Momma from redressing them. I can't find any of their clothes, and it's not for lack of trying. I'm actually quite proud of the fact that I keep Madelynn's toys very organized, all pieces together, wood with wood... I'm very anal about it. That's why I kept dressing her babies, I didn't want the clothes to get lost. But I have failed, they are gone.
At first I thought all this naked was kind of strange, I mean what kind of child goes to those kind of lengths to keep her baby's lack of privates exposed? But then I thought, when you compare this to the toy box of my seven year old self, filled to capacity with headless, nude barbies, this nakey newborn phenomenon is actually pretty tame.
I'm still hunting those clothes though.

That's what Christmas was like for me. I woke up for three weeks straight and it was still Christmas, I swear it never ended. I need to get my thoughts and pictures together before I can commit to writing that post. There are high and low points that I don't want to forget; broken chairs, penis pencil topper shoved in my ear, something with wrapping paper maybe... I don't know. I'll get to it.
Until then, here's some kitty love:
Fabulous, shiny hair times two:
