By the way I graduated

Danny told me, "I have a graduation present for you...and it's not a graduated cylinder."

Science nerd!


Funny moments in August

Danny: "I can't believe the cheese has already gone bad! The expiration date is in September!"
Me:"Are you sure it's bad?"
"Totally! It's all moldy!"
[I look at the package]
"Danny it's a mexican blend WITH JALEPENO bits!"
"Well that's the dumbest idea ever! It looks JUST like mold!"

DMBA did not cover any of my hospital bill due to a coding error on their part. Apparently I was in the hospital for a mental illness, not to give birth (even though it says labor/delivery on the explanation of benefits!). Danny and I think they are retards. It would be one thing if this were the first time this has happened but literally every time I have a financial experience with them that involves them paying for part of my bill this happens. This is why they are listed in my phone as "DAMNBA". Ha-ha. Sigh. Don't worry, we're in the process of working it out with them, the hospital, and my doctor. But apparently coding errors take at least two freaking weeks to figure out. I completely understand why people in this country are screaming for healthcare reform!

When I fed Jane and she sort of smiled at me, and then puked all over me. Combined with the times she's peed and puked on both me and Danny, which are numerous.

OH WOW I think I just saw Jane's first smile! She's here sitting on my lap. Despite what I thought would be impossible, I figured out how to nurse and do other things at the same time (watch TV, type, and read - that's about it). She's been done for about 5 minutes, and I just looked down at her and she got a huge grin - and her eyes were open! This is the first time this has happened. Granted, I think that her eyes were open even though she was asleep because they were kind of rolled up in the back of her head, but it was still exciting to me! I can't wait until she smiles. Like Becky said, it will feel like "Oh! You don't hate me!"

When Jane woke up in the middle of the night, and I was too tired to get up so I said, "Hey, Danny, will you please get up?" and he did - and walked over to Jane's crib - and stood there for a while, and finally rememebered "Oh, I have to feed her!"

Is she getting better at controlling her hands?
