Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Two Weeks

Has it been two weeks already?? Two weeks and two days, to be precise. Holy wow...

We took Sprout to her two week check-up this morning. They weighed, measured and examined her thoroughly and declared her "beautiful", "perfect", and "really very alert" in tones that sounded genuine rather than rehearsed.

She's almost back to birth weight, although I'm glad they weighed her before she loaded her nappy (poor Someone fielded this one, and it was a doozie!!). At least she waited until we got home to be...er...productive.

She's grown an inch, as well...exhausting work, given how much she sleeps.

Speaking of sleep...I need a nap. Sprout's a good sleeper, but I'm still not getting as much rest as my body seems to want. Sigh.

How're you doin'?

I have a feeling this baby is going to be a fairly good sized kid, ya know?

Guess you must be doing something right, huh?
