Matilda seems to like helping, or trying to at least. She's in that whole stage of bringing things to you to give. As I type, she just wandered in to hand me a spoon.

Of course, not all of her help is quite as helpful as I'd like. The other night when I was folding laundry, if I took socks out of the basket to pair up, she kept throwing the loose ones back into the basket. The basket that contained folded clothes, she decided needed to be emptied one item at a time. It was funny, but it does get kind of aggravating to put the same laundry in the basket about 5 times.

Earlier I gave her her toothbrush, because she likes to brush her teeth herself for a while, and after we were done brushing her teeth and she was just wandering around the bedroom with it, she came over to me as I was sitting on the floor watching her, and poked the brush at my mouth. When I obliged and opened up, she actually tried brushing my teeth. It was rather cute.

So, we finally have Dashiell in something resembling a normal sleeping pattern (third night in a row where he's gone to bed somewhere between 8-9pm and slept til 5-6am, for him a *huge* deal), and then Matilda just gets worse and worse. She just pulled an all-nighter, pretty much. Well she had one or two of those <10 minute micro naps, which amped her up completely, but obviously doesn't do much for me beyond make me extremely frustrated.

I just canceled and rescheduled the tour of the school that I was going to go visit later, because I honestly don't think it's going to be a good idea to get in the car in an hour and drive around after not having slept yet, and having slept poorly yesterday.

Currently she's calmer, as I put her in her seat in front of the tv for a few minutes, so she's watching PBS/Sprout. It seems to be distracting her, which is good, because she was bouncing off the walls not 5 minutes earlier and driving me to the point of wanting to scream.

If I'm really lucky, she'll pass out within the next 5-10 minutes. *sigh*

Happy New Year to everyone!

I have been a bad LJ person. I haven't kept up with anything the past 2 or so months, and obviously have not posted either. It is likely that such will be remedied shortly.

In the meantime, here are the kiddos:

When Prez informed a former colleague of the birth of Matilda on IM the other day, he joked to said colleague that he could type her name as ~ (tilde) being that Tilda is one nickname for Matilda. Said colleague then pointed out that we already have a - (Dash) and that we are the ( ) (parens aka parentheses).


Funny, but completely accidental.

So our family is (-~) ?

Please welcome Matilda Anais (supposed to have 2 dots on the i, but PreZ's laptop won't let me do it the way I know how).

Born March 25th at home in the pool at 3.54pm as a surprise breech birth! She decided that coming head first was too mundane, and so she came butt first instead, to everybody's surprise.

8lbs 1/2oz and 19.5 inches tall.

Other than her surprise presentation (being that she's been head down for weeks, even for an internal exam), labour was pretty fast once I got past yesterday's pro-dromal and early labour. Pushing itself was a 10-15 minute affair which occurred much sooner than I had anticipated.

Anyway, needless to say we are thrilled, and also tired and sore.

Thanks to all who wished me well in the earlier stages! :)
