20. A cool name?

Yes, a very cool name!

Portable babies...now that is something to appreciate!

I share two items with him: # 16 and #17. It is possible that I used to share all of these attributes, but no more. Particularly gone: 4 through 7. Extra particularly #5.

Considering it that way, I have the opposite of #1, but I am very interested in wind and Ben, and am pretty much all about #17.

Why is it that boys are lucky enough to be born with such long, beautiful eyelashes? I guess someone (G-d, the universe, whoever, whatever) is making it up to them because they aren't supposed to wear mascara. Long eyelashes AND no clumping.

I'm 4__, but totally 17. (See "Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.)

Asa is a great name. I have twin girls who will be two weeks old on Thursday.

I am personally into baby heads. Not like wearing them on a belt or anything sick like that, but there is something about stroking a tiny soft head with barely any hair that makes everything else (getting up 52 times a night for each girl, 48 of those times just to move the pacifier three inches into her mouth) a lot easier to deal with.

I've done an informal study: My large, mostly hairless, hard head does not have the same effect on people.

Baby heads rule. You're so lucky to have two! I don't know how you have time to look at a blog!
