Moms of supersize babies unite! I had to buy a new car seat when my son was 12 weeks. Because I know you will end up needing to know this, Evenflo makes a booster seat that has a 5 point rated to 65lbs/50" tall, I'm 2" off him outgrowing this now!

My son has a habit of puking about half an hour into any long journey. He puked up something bright pink all over literally everything in the middle of massive Chicago highway construction, at rush hour on a Friday as we were half an hour into our 20 hour drive to Florida. He rode all the way to Knoxville in just his diaper! Since he calls all bodily functions by their color, puke is now known as pink, as I discovered as we set off from San Antonio on Sunday - "mommy I need to do pink".

That is such a cute video, I wish I had one for each of my kids!

You can get a version of the BabyNes here, I wonder if there's a diamond encrusted Butt Paste.
Well of course now that I don't live in Chicago anymore... Congrats, very excited for you that you get to expand your series like this, it's a great project.
We can't stop you pooping into a nurse's hand... We can't help you avoid having to go through potty training AGAIN... We can't make minivans cool...
Both of my kids loved to play 'hide the high value banknotes', where you take either EUR100 or $100 depending on where you live at the time, and disappearing it from all sight, forever and ever. There is also 'drop one cat biscuit into the cat's water so that mommy has to change it, again' which is very popular on my house.
Pinned it too!

Husband shaming. Closely followed by Hannukah elf shaming. And all the letters to babies.

Well Kyle is 2 right now so he could do with adopting all of those resolutions. Although I have mittens down, because I sewed them on to his coat sleeves so he has no choice. And if I could get him to have a security item that was not my hair, I would let him carry as many as he wanted. Also, I totally have my old ipad to my toddler after getting a mini for myself. He is now free to watch Pocoyo in every language it comes in.
With regard to number 9 and gifts, you have to wait 6 years, move to another country and get new friends. Then there are gifts. Actually I was more worried with my second because now I knew all the things that actually could go wrong, rather than what I may have imagined from reading every book published about babies. Like how expensive stitches are at the ER.
What an awesome party, and even more awesome friend!

Inappropriate elf is literally my favorite thing about Christmas now. I need one just so I can enter this competition!
I took Kiki out on a tram in Amsterdam (and shopping) when she was 6 days old. Kyle came to our anniversary lunch at Olive Garden when he was 5 days old. What can I say, us Europeans do it different. And Kyle had the same ability to cry the second I sat down to eat anything. It was like he could sense it or something.
Almost there! Although if it were my house, my husband would suddenly have to take over one night and blow all my hard work in an instant.

We saw the Magnatiles for the first time at a cool play place near us recently, I was excited to buy some for Kyle until I saw how expensive they are!
Gutted because I could totally win that contest, thanks to the Dutch not giving a crap about being sued.

What can I say, us Jens from England are pretty talented! That is a lovely quilt, Mazzy is going to treasure it forever I think.

The last weeks are the worst because everyone is asking you if you had the baby yet - like you wouldn't have let them know or anything...

So glad you guys are all OK, and it's great that you managed to get somewhere else to stay so quickly. Now keep those legs crossed!

This is what king size beds were invented for. My daughter was never one to sleep in our bed, even when she was sick. But the little guy slept in our bed most nights until about 6 months ago, when he just took himself into his own bed one night and that was it. He still comes barging in at 6am, but usually finds the ipad and is happy. But when he was in our bed, he also did that sideways sleeping thing Mazzy is doing here. Without fail.

Argh you're lucky you're pregnant here in the US. When I was pregnant with my first in Holland I had to give up my seat to old ladies all the time, once I had a young guy in a suit give ME a dirty look for not standing to give my seat to a woman who actually appeared to be way less pregnant than me, but she was dressed to let everyone know about it while I was dressed for work. The day before I actually gave birth, at 41.5 weeks, I had to give up my seat to a really old lady because she was really struggling to stand and literally nobody else would get up. I could not believe what was happening. But hey, I avoided an induction so thanks lazy Dutchies.
Mine is the same and she's 8. She loves Lego, and Pokemon, and Skylanders (yes she has expensive taste). She also loves having her hair done, and wearing pink dresses. It's a problem now because she doesn't share interests with the girls at school, and the boys don't want to play with a girl, especially one in a pink dress. Ah the joys of almost tweendom.

It didn't take much convincing. My husband still finds reasons we should have gone with it after 2 years.
