my life as a scullery maid

What I don't understand is how Joe can act so exhausted when I ask him to watch the baby in the morning if I haven't asked him to do any of the overnight diaper changes or feeds. It's 7:30am, for chrissake! That's late! I think this kid has wrecked my ability to sleep in.

So while the sleeping beauties were sleeping, I decided to tackle the bottle mound. Never in my life have I longed for a dishwasher, but dealing with Cal's five thousand bottles and plugs and caps and nipples and pump parts have had me reconsidering my stand on being a hand-wash-only kind of household.



Keep in mind that all this waste is only from yesterday afternoon. Imagine the horror of a 24 hour pile-up and maybe you understand why I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night screaming.

And now, some miscellaneous baby pictures:

getting ready for our outing yesterday

He doesn't look thrilled, but generally, he enjoys his bath

Night vision post-bath

Waiting for his next meal, clutching at himself
in the fear that it may not come on time

Thanks for all the computer opinions, everyone. Right now in terms of laptops, I'm leaning slightly towards the 15" Powerbook despite the price in the interest of making us a single-operating system household, and just because I feel like I should just see what all these Mac enthusiasts are talking about. I wonder if I should get a laptop at all, though--seems like I could get a lot more for the money, even within Mac, if I were in the market for a desktop. Honestly, I'd be using the laptop mostly as a desktop replacement--there are very few instances in which I've thought, gee, I wish my computer was portable so that I could take it to Starbucks and get all territorial with the outlets. And as for being portable for presentations, I do have a portable Flash drive already, so having an actual portable computer seems less important. Maybe it would be fun to have a portable computer for trips and stuff, but honestly, it's not like I go on trips that often. Anyway, we're going to be carting around so much baby gear anytime we go anywhere now, I feel like the first thing we'd jettison would be the computer. And we have a portable DVD player already, so even that's redundant. I don't know...I like the idea of having one of the computers in this house as a laptop, but in terms of bang for our buck, I'm having a hard time reconciling the difference.

Does anyone have the iMac G5? Any opinions? Thanks again, computer peoples!
