Oh my gosh! You did some good breeding there :D I bet you have trouble putting her down.
Seriously. Read your role PM before playing.
I am sorry if you have to prod me, I have absolutely no concept of time.

My prefered pronoun set is "cie/cir/cirs[elf]" but they is more than acceptable.

Third child will be born January 4th, 1109, and concieved February 19, 2205. Kublai seems like the kind of guy who'll have a time machine at some point.
One time, back in 'nam, Sudo was set upon by an entire squadron of charlies. He challenged them all to a game of Pictionary, which he won resoundingly. The charlies were forced to not only surrender the skirmish, but also their world-famous chili recipe, which Sudo sold to Texas for a hefty profit. Sudo is a master of diplomacy.

Thanks for all the congrats guys. We're pretty much exhausted at this point and everyone is napping.

My wife got some horrible postpartum depression last time with Brody, mostly because of her inability to breastfeed. But out of that came a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and a prescription to lithium which has helped her tremendously. But there apparently isn't much literature regarding pregnancy and lithium and the studies that do exist point to an association with a rare cardiac disease called Ebstein's anomaly and something scary about "floppy baby syndrome". So there was stress, and a plan to give birth at a birthing center was cancelled. But ultimately everything was fine in the sonograms (although late-stage sonograms are a pain because the rib cage forms to a point where it blocks proper view of the heart). The lithium probably accounts for the bigger size of the baby, apparently.

But everything is going super well. Breastfeeding is going well, we passed all screenings (heel sticks for blood sugar checks are obnoxious) and left the hospital a little earlier than expected (we were able to opt out of the "Don't Shake Babies" class). Right now the plan is to not have a third. I'm probably going to go have a vasectomy.

And those aren't piles of poo, saul. It's a super cozy elephant blanket.

Yeah I figured it was something like that, I was only teasin'.

One thing I learned when we had our yung'uns: Don't put anything in the crib with them, especially things like blankets. Too many babies accidentally grab them and pull them over their faces and then can't breathe. Dress the baby warmly enough and leave the crib barren.

Unsolicited advice, I know, but it was drilled into us so hard I feel compelled to share it. Apologies if it's unwelcome.

Oh yeah, I know. That's always good advice. That picture was taken after we dressed her, so it was just an on-the-bed quick shot.

That's actually good to know. I never would've thought that. Though I haven't taken any classes, yet, so I'm sure I'll get it.

Fun fact: I actually found out we were pregnant the same time KK did, but didn't say anything because I didn't want to steal any thunder (which was good anyway since we had another miscarriage about a week after his announcement). Based on due dates we could've had baby buddies! :P

But seriously, post all the advice cuz there are still people who could use it!

Oof.. That's a tall order. Every pregnancy/birth/baby is different. The general no-nos are stuff like don't shake the baby, keep crib clear, let the baby sleep on it's back... Probably more I can't think of at the moment. The second baby is more relaxing that the first. All the little anxieties over the first one aren't present anymore.

There's been interesting new things though. There was the presence of meconium in the amniotic fluid at birth (she pooped, uh.. during birth while still "inside"), so she had to be suctioned out. But she made the cutest little "grunting" noise for the first 18 hours or so (gradually tapering off) where she worked to pass out of extra stuff. Also, she snorts when she cries. So weird.

Sorry about the miscarriage again, singer.

You hear the "nothing in the crib" thing so many times at the hospital, but with good reason. I never heard it before either.

Don't sleep with your baby either.

Snipped. 2 kids was our agreed upon limit. Though if we had a bigger house and more land, I admit there'd be temptation to have more.

I think 2 kids will be my limit when the time comes. 3 kids requires big cars not just big property
