picture found


I found this picture on my photobucket. It was taken from my cell phone a day or two before Aiden was discharged from the NICU. I think he weighed around 5 lbs. at the time. I really love this picture - he's making such a goofy face. :)

this makes me crazy

So I was searching cafe press for NFP items, and I ran across this t-shirt:

This makes me crazy! Now, I will fully admit that there are valid medical reasons for having a c-section. I've had one myself (after much whining and debating, I should add). But the way c-sections are now touted as a normal alternative to vaginal childbirth seriously makes me want to vomit. I don't have a lot of time to post right now, but let's just say that there is ample evidence out there about the risks of c-sections that no woman should just reflexively book a c-section! Planned inductions without valid medical reasons are bad enough, but planned c-sections "just because" are even worse. And wearing this t-shirt out and about screams that you are either ignorant on the issue or just plain ignorant.

Happy 2010!

I hope this year is the best yet.

I just adore this picture of my grandparents with my uncle; it doesn't really have anything to do with the new year.
