Buf visit & Codypomeray Bday

So I'm headed back to the Buf for a week at the end of this month with ze bebe Oliver. It will be his first taste of Buffalo and by that I mean the faint hint of beef on weck and chicken wing spice in my breast milk. Richie was gearing him up for the trip by initiating the father son ritual of beer drinking (for dad only) and Sabres hockey watching. Although, at 8 weeks Oliver is pretty much ameused at watching his own hand so I'm not sure if he's a die hard fan yet.
We'll be home Saturday May 27th through June 3rd then I'm back to work again--ugggh! Rich is steping up to the daddy plate and taking a 3 month paternity leave when I go back to work
he is super dad!
BIG OLD HAPPY LATE BIRTHDAY TO CODYPOMERAY who celebrated his big 30 on May 5th. Damn I forgot to text you on your birthday - please attribute my absentmindedness to new mommy lack of sleep and expect that I will text you a toast for certain next year. I am drinking you a beer right now as a matter of fact. Here's to you, hope you have a year full of everything you don't yet know you are looknig for!

Baby Oliver

I finally had my very sweet baby boy Sunday march 12th (5 days later than expected). His name is Oliver Richard Keeves and he was 8 lbs 5.5 oz, and 22 inches long at birth. With support of Rich, the UCLA midwives and my doula Katie, I managed to deliver by totally natural childbirth with no epidural or even an IV. Early labor began at about 3:45 am. With all the great support, I stayed to labor at home as long as possible and arrived at the hospital at 11:30 am in active labor. By just shortly after 3 pm I was told it was time to start the pushing phase and Oliver arrived on the scene at 3:18pm. He came out with his hand next to his head and I was told that my pushing phase was uncharacteristically short. Other than his needing a little extra suction after the short transition, there were no complications and he is the picture of a healthy little angel baby. We are home now and doing great adjusting to the new life. Oliver is a lettle cuddle bug and loves to be held. He rarely cries and is now sleeping in periods of 3 to 4 hours (which to a new momma is a lot!) I'll post pics soon!

the peach?

Not to thrilling a result but here it is. (From (e:robin)'s link)

The Peach
Random Gentle Love Master (RGLMf)


Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach.

For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you're surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don't get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it.


Your exact opposite:
The Nymph

Deliberate Brutal Sex Dreamer

You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you're becoming more selective about long-term love. It's getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who's in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him.

Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you. But not overly intense.

the waiting game

I'm still waiting for baby to arrive, i'm more excited than nervous but I am getting anxious that its now 2 days past the due date. I guess a little late is not that big of a deal in first-time-mama-land but for some reason I had it in my head that baby was going to be early so now I feel like it's really late. I can't wait to meet the little one!
