Without further delay - I introduce..... Milk Dud

Hello everyone!!! I have been so lazy with this baby that I have put off introducing him long enough. That and my sister LOST her camera!!! in the lake!!! BUT, thank God for mom and disposable camera's that she brought for the delivery!! Just got them developed, and sister in law let me borrow her camera for this introduction. Can you tell I have been cooped up in this house for over a week - I am making less sense than normal. Whats normal... not me... SO here is a description of what I have been up to - in pictures...



I am trying to get a sponsorship from Pampers or Huggies!! I will have to ask PW how this works - how to get sponsors.. :)

BUT - Here is how the day that Milk Dud came into the world went....
I got up about 4 - made breakfast for the minions, showered making sure to wash all the 'areas' nessicary to be clean for the humiliation that was about to take place. Really, I could show it to anyone at this point and not feel embarrassed... I mean - they all look the same, sorry - got off track.

Kissed the older boys goodbye and told hubby to take it easy on that cow that was delivering - I knew how she felt and she needed him to be kind. My mom and sister went with me, I drove - I hate to ride with anyone else, makes me nervous...
We got to the hospital, checked in and went to my luxury suite. They put me in the room that I was going to be in for the duration, so it was nice to be able to get the room set up how I wanted it before we got into the thick of things. So here is the LONG awaited belly shot - no I dont have a beehive hairdo, my moms purse was on a shelf right behind my head so it looks like my hair is from the hayday of BIG HAIR!!

After this we had to get ready for the main event. My mom suited up and braved the O.R. since the Milk Man was helping a poor damsel in labor distress.... frigin cow.... Did I say that out loud??? Sorry...
This is my mom -

Then it all went off without a hitch - we both did great and these are some after pictures. We couldnt take a camera in with us, but the nurse made sure that we got some great pictures of Milk Dud in the nursery getting ready to come back to me in the room.

Getting his prints:

This is my sister giving him his first bath - she is 13 year younger than I am, yes we have the same parents they just felt frisky later on in life ok! I have a brother that is also 16 years younger than I am.... I take after my mom... frisky.
Anyway this is my sister..

Lispy didnt know what to think at first, but he got over not likeing the baby and has pretty much taken over his care - to an extent. He wants to give him a ride on his 3 wheel trike....



Then the Milk Man came to see his new son - the day AFTER he was born... I know what you guys are thinking, but its really HARD to get away from the farm and I knew that when we married. I dont get angry about it, because I know in my heart he wanted to be there - its just as disapointing for him as it was for me - so why be angry at him.
This is my beloved Milk Man and Milk Dud meeting for the first time...



What is it that PW says about fore arms??? These are not the greatest pictures of him, trust me he is MUCH hotter in person - that chest, forearms, smile... I want to have his baby's - wait - I just did - SO what I want another one or at least a chance to 'try' for one!!!

So now I leave you with the lateset picture I have of my dearest baby...


And last but not least, for those with a baby foot fetish, heres your fix...

Congrats on the new baby! He's soooo cute! Love the baby toes's picture! Hope you get that sponsorship!

Heide said...

What a sweet and beautiful baby. Thank you for sharing the experience with us all. You look absolutely beautiful too. Congratulations to all of you.

Milk Dud is soooooooo cute. You know, it is so true about dairy farmers....really, they can never take a day off. HA.

It's the reality of life. The cows are your livelihood and you cannot chance a dead cow and baby. A lot of people probably wouldn't understand but they don't live a farm life that has a different set of commitments. And besides...look at that man, who could stay mad at him?

You did fine...your mom did a great job, Milk Dud is healthy and has cute toes. All is well in the world.

P.S. Heidi - you don't have e-mail contact information on your profile.....so e-mail me, I've got some ideas/stuff to discuss with you!!!

Oh, this one made me cry!!! Your baby is absolutely beautiful!!!! I've been watching for his picture. What is it about a new baby that just grabs you by the heart? My baby was 42 in May!!! Yikes!!! I am getting old!!! I know you have your hands full with 5 boys and a frisky husband! (Takes two to tango, you know!) You look just beautiful pregnant, too!

Anxious to watch him grow now!!! Glad that dear little Lispy is okay with a new baby in his house.

Good luck with the diaper sponsorship!

I know you have your hands full with 5 boys and 1 frisky husband!
But we'll all be waiting for updates on the life of a mom of 5 boys! Bless your heart!!!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Milk Dud is wonderful! I could just eat him up! Milk duds are my favorite candy. And thanks for the feet shot. But did you smell his head for me????
It was fun to see your picture you look just like my friend Jodi, except for the beehive:)
Enjoy that bundle of love.

Rechelle said...

Oh Heidi - you crack me up! Love the purse on your head shot. He is absolutely beautiful... the baby... not the Milkman... although the Milkman is not terribly hard to look at either.

Caame over by way of Country Doctor's Wife. Congratulations on the new one. He is so cute and yes, I wanted to hold those cute little toesy woosies...makes me want to have another one...no, I already have 7, so I will have to wait for those little grands that I can spoil and spoil and then give back. Congrats on the new camera too.

Rhea said...

I do have a baby feet fetish, thank you for that picture.

Congrats on your newest boy! I can't believe you have five of them. This is my first time reading your blog, came over from The Country Doctor's Wife. Nice to meet you!

Susan said...

At the point of having your particulars scrutinized by absolutely EVERYONE, you automatically open up to anyone entering the room..........with nary an embarrassing twinge.

very funny....your reference to those "areas"
