This is not a Mommy Blog...BUT...
Since there are dogs in these pictures, I decided I would post them despite the fact that there is a baby in the photo as well. :) :)
Jennifer has been missing in action for many months, but, I guess she had a good excuse: She had a human creature baby! And, she can still take some of the best photos of her babies that I've ever seen! Just look at baby boy's little face in his new dog pack of four! He looks like he likes it, but has sort of a quizzical look about him, as if to say, "I am comfortable, but somehow I don't quite fit in..what is it?"
Jennifer says: "Sorry I haven't been on the blog lately. This parenting thing is exhausting! We were able to get some pictures today of the baby and the monsters.
"Things are going well. Cambridge was born on January 20, 2008 after about 20 hours of labor. I was supposed to be induced on the 22nd, but he had a mind of his own. I woke up the morning of the 19th, stood up, and my water broke in our bedroom floor. My husband was at work, so I called his boss to go get him off the floor to come home. My hubby thought his boss was joking at first, since we were supposed to induced, his boss had to show my hubby his cell phone with our phone number on it.
"My hubby headed home and we went on to the hospital. After 20 hours of labor, I still was not fully dilated so they performed a C-section and Cambridge was born at 1:44am on the 20th, he weighed 8 lbs, 10 oz and was 21 inches long. I have enjoyed being home with him over the past few weeks. He is an amazing baby! He looks quite a bit like his daddy. He already holds his head up and can almost roll over. I am going to be returning to the office on a part time basis in mid-March and then full time near the end of April.
"The dogsreally seem to love the baby. They are much calmer now and protective of the baby. Zander would sleep in the baby's room if I would let him. He always goes in there and lays right in front of the crib. It is really sweet. Annabelle is motherly and constantly wants to clean the baby's eyes and ears, so we have to keep an eye on her. Overall though they have adjusted wonderfully."
"I miss chatting with you all on the blog and when I get some more time I will return! Enjoy the pictures!"
Question of the Day: Why are dog and cat babies better than human babies? THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 20-hour LABOR before being able to bring them home! LOL.
