I am still here!

Things are going well. Max is doing great, he goes to get his first round of shots next week. He just keeps pudging up, so that is positive. He is currently hanging out on the kitchen table which is actually in the living room, and has now become his changing table. For some odd reason it is his favorite place to be. He can lie there for about 20-30 minutes and be perfectly happy. Sadly, there are no sides, but luckily it is within arms reach of my computer, and he has yet to throw himself off of any furniture.


Back, Max is in what I like to call the "magic swing." I have to say that breastfeeding with diabetes has been really interesting, my bloodsugars drop to nothing for no reason at all. Some days it is hard to keep up. It wouldn't be so bad if I could get out of the house and get me some sugar (the Slytherin has been doing the grocery shopping, bless him, but since he is watching sugar intake as well he doesn't buy ANYTHING sweet anymore!) I am feeling like putting Max in the Snugli carrier and walking down to the mini mart and buy out their stock of Reese's Pieces.

Since no one asked--- My Spoiler Policy for DH: I would prefer not to read anything spoilery aside from speculation based on the various cover arts that have been released. If I ever have the time to post about such speculations, I will put them under a warning cut, basically because I don't want tunxeh to defriend me! ;)


Back again, I am really looking forward to seeing all my friends here for the weekend of the OotP movie release. The only thing that upsets me is that I have to go back to work the week after they are here, adn I about go into a panic attack the second I even start thinking about leaving Max for 9 hours at a time.

Okay I have been working on this entry for about 5 hours now so here is the picspam and I am off to eat something before Max wakes up again!

Here is Max in his Magic Swing

And here he is pulling his own hair, which he often does and then gets very upset about. Here's hoping that he figures out that he is the one doing it soon!

I was a bad mommy while Max was sleeping and I gave him this hairdo for my own personal laugh:

I propped him up against this pillow and he stayed there! So I took pictures:

totally digging on the mohawk!

i like the last photo best, he looks quite erudite, like he's contemplating some very serious business. (perhaps pooping.)

he is so beautiful! *kisses that sweet little nose*

I'm glad the breastfeeding is going well, even though it is affecting your blood sugar.

Hogan was obsessed with his changing table. When he was fussy, which was never really, we'd just lay him on it and he'd calm right down.

Max is the same way. He stops crying and just stares around when I put him down there.

His latest trick is screaming when he is tired and not wanting to keep nursing, which is pretty counter productive to him actually getting to sleep, so on the table he goes for about 10-15 minutes until he calms down enough to nurse again and then he goes to sleep in about 2 minutes. Strange little boy.

Oh, he is a gorgeous and yummy thing!

Thanks! His little hands and toes do get nibbled on quite often :D

Such cute sweet photos! I love the sleeping hairdo! Well done!

I am glad to hear that you are doing well and I look forward to some cover art speculation. Behind a cut, of course!

I hope I find some brain power to make some speculations!

Such a cutie!

Love the knit blanket in the swing. Alex has a green one my mom made that he still loves, and we have great pics of him in it when he was like two weeks old.

The mohawk is very cool!

Yup that is the blanket that his Grammy (my mom) made for him. I thought that the mohawk was pretty funny myself.

I just adore the picture of Max sleeping. Isn't it wonderful when they are asleep - which reminds me, why aren't you having a nap at the same time?
Jun. 10th, 2007 10:39 pm (UTC)
I was probably using the valuable time to do something frivolous like eat or shower ;)

He just keeps getting cuter, if that's possible! Oh, I'm so happy for you and I can't wait to meet him in a few weeks!

I've been thinking about you a lot—came across some of your smutty_claus fics—which I hadn't read because this December was rather a drag...

In any case! I will review fics, etc., etc, but more imporantly...

Beautiful baby.


I particularly love what my wife used to call the drunken sailor look in the one where he's sleeping. What a cutie!

I am officially, totally and completely in love.

What an edible child!!! :-)

Don't you just love the little toes and little fingers. I used to just hold Nathan and nibble and kiss on them and he'd cackle...

*gets teary*

Ohhhhh you're such a lucky cow.....Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy.

The other day avatar gleefully stood on my chest and while I struggled to breath I wistfully recalled the days when I could support him in one hand and burp him with the other.....

Enjoy every momment.

It's great that Max is doing well. best wishes
Jun. 11th, 2007 05:18 pm (UTC)
SQUUUEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! He's sooo damn cute!

I'm not a mom so I'm not an expert....but you'll do fine...you're a great mom Tor! Can't wait to see you either.....a month and counting!
Jun. 11th, 2007 07:36 pm (UTC)
Wow, he's a cuty Tory...btw he is starting to look more like Dave (this is a good thing, yes???? *grin*). I can see the resemblance in the pix but can't wait to see the little wizard in the flesh. Boooo to you having to go back to work so soon, especially just after we have all been there...not long to go though!!!

Jun. 15th, 2007 10:42 pm (UTC)
He's just such a wee poppet!

Reminds me a lot of my two (both had dark hair), and Lauren used to grab hers all the time, then get angry because someone was pulling her hair.

Take care of yourself Tory. It's just sheer hard work in the first few months. But boy, you can just spend hours watching them!

Love from the Gryffindors
