Youngest Baby Ever Born. Reborn Baby Doll Supplies. Used Baby Walkers.
My name is Molly, and I sleep with my baby; day 199
Before Perla was born, we bought her a crib -- she has yet to sleep in it. Perla had a rather dramatic entry into the world: she suffered a head injury and required resuscitation; when she was finally released to me from the NICU, I couldn't bear to have her sleep alone in the hard lucite hospital bassinette, so I took her into bed with me. Our first night together was the most blissful experience of my life. When we were released from the hospital, I attempted to put Perla to sleep for the night in her bassinette: she wouldn't have it. So, she began sleeping with me and my husband in our bed. She has yet to fall asleep on her own (and yes, I've tried Ferber -- the "cry it out" method -- and it pisses Perla off to no end; her cries turn to angry, frightened screams until she's picked up); the majority of Perla's naps are taken with me. Most nights I get a reasonable amount of sleep: usually 6 hours, sometimes 8, although not consecutively. Too often, we do what we are supposed to do, what we are obligated to do, or what we think people expect us to do -- we far too rarely do what is right for us. The "family bed" gets a lot of flack: it's setting a bad habit, it's perverted, it's dangerous, it spoils your child, your child will still be sleeping with you when she's 8... but it is right for us. The great majority of mothers in the world sleep with their babies (think of all the mothers in rural and developing nations that don't have access to a Babies R Us...); the concept of a crib is largely western, and about 150 years old. People complain that kids grow up too quickly nowadays, that they're too eager to be independent and don't respect their parents. Yet it's common practice to encourage young babies to sleep independently and for parents to ignore their cries. Babies cry because they need something from grown ups -- be it food or comfort. Ignoring the only way a baby can communicate, to me, is wrong. I am very fortunate that I can stay home with Perla, that she can snuggle herself to sleep with me. It isn't glamourous; it's the hardest job I've ever had and I get frustrated and I'm tired, but I know it's the right thing to do. At least for us.Baby Chicks , Kauai Cuties
If you have ever been to Hawaii you know that some of the cutest chicks on the island are not sporting bikinis and riding surf boards but they do have colorful feathers and attract a lot of attention of tourists and kids. These young siblings were up in the park near Wiamea Canyon in Kauai. I must say that when they grow up those who become roosters have some of the most colorful outfits in the animal kingdom. Its all part of the island scene as cars slow down and stop while the hen and her little mates go wandering arcross the highways. There cute looks make up for all those roosters that want to wake you up at five am in the morning.
