These Little Piggies Had Tofu

So I'm going to get around to changing the title and header (but not the URL) of this blog eventually. Things are a bit hectic at the moment.

Actually, I lie. Things are quite peaceful at the moment. Liam's sleeping on the couch next to me, three hours of nap and counting... It's probably going to be a long night of awakeness up in the bedroom.

I took photos and video of Anna and Liam's first meeting at the hospital. Here are the photos. Video will come hopefully within a few days.

Like every other human, she loves the feeling of a baby holding her finger.


Liam's a sucker. So much so that mere minutes out of the womb I got him to calm down by putting my pinkie finger in his mouth (he also successfully breast-fed right away ... though I give 99% of the credit there to my experienced wife).

Anyway, Anna got on in the finger-sucking action. It looks like she's trying to decide, in the photo below, where the other finger is going to go.


Liam was breast-feeding and Anna was on the bed next to Jen. She wanted to give him a kiss and a hug again, but Jen suggested she look at his little feet instead. "Can I kiss his toe, Mommy?" she asked. The answer was yes.






The whole fam damily fit on a hospital bed. Ah, the things you do for a good photo.

Adorable! So glad you're proving that vegan kids are the way to go! By the way - I tried to get the counter you have at the top of my blog but the link no longer works. I've looked elsewhere but no luck! Help?

PL&V, I know! I've scoured the internet (for five minutes, but that's scouring when it comes to the internet, isn't it?) and I cannot find the code anywhere. So weird. I can email it to you if you want. Just sent me an email via my profile page and I'll respond with the code.
