As it turns out I went into labor on Thanksgiving Day. Craziness ensued but I am home with an infant that is gorgeous and everything is good. Just had a minor incident where I was out worming the pigs and got some Agri-mectin in my mouth. Very little, no effects but boy did I panic and call poison control. I drive my hubs nuts. I might just get rid of these pigs. I never considered my kids getting worms from them until hubs freaked out about it and now I'm freaked out about it. Anyway, Had my baby and we're great! Home for the month of December so probably won't be around much.

Congrats, elle, and hopefully all are resting well.  For the most part, I would not worry too much about the low, accidental Agri-mectin dose as this is ivermectin and is used in humans in some cases and parts of the world as an anti-helminth. ( see https://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-1122/ivermectin-oral/details )  Good luck with the new little one!.....

Uh oh. You see that, way back, but there in the twinkle? That's trouble, you betcha.

Good luck with that cutie patootie. If you could bottle that cuteness, you'd have college money and to spare.

Thanks for the pic. Beautiful. Congratulations. Keep 'em comin', keep us posted, and take care.

Chris, I trust you meant, "keep the *pictures* coming". I suspect Elle is perfectly happy with just one baby to look after!

Elle - How did you get the model with hair? Mine both arrived bald as billiard balls. Yours is totally beautiful. Clearly, I'm ready to be a grandmother. Oh, well, I expect I'll have to put up with ducklings for a few more years.

Congratulations, Elle! (Where is the heart emoticon when I need it?) I'm so happy to hear this news!

That's what I would do to, call poison control. Very wise thinking, that's what I think.

I don't know what to say about this but perhaps you could tell your hubs I said "Hi"? Drive him even more nuts? Who's Nina Jay from Finland?

Lots of heart emoticons!

She is so adorable!

The thing of it is, she does not look like Winston Churchill! I am not sure if you noticed this before but ALL babies look like Winston Churchill...not that there is anything wrong with Winston Churchill, or Babies that look like Winston Churchill...which includes my own babies. But she does not...

But she is adorable, and I am so glad how she has helped your family grow!

Oh, a new game - what does that baby 'look' say?

I'd suggest it's a, "you don't seriously expect me to believe that?"  look.

Whereas, in the first picture posted, it's a, "are you my mom?"  look.

Any other opinions? I bet Travis Johnson has seen many baby "looks" like both of those, even if all of his babies looked like Winston Churchill. I'd have said that my first looked like Albert Einstein crossed with Yoda (and yes, I believe I read somewhere that Yoda has Albert's eyes).

Hang in there Elle. I'm sure you appreciate all the "well-wishes", but if we manage to give you some laughs as well, it is supposed to be the best medicine, and babies are a *lot* of work!

I forget how much babies scream. Scream for no discernable reason.

When her father looks at me like that it's usually, "I can't believe how dumb you can be." Lol

I remember one time a guy told me that his wife was spending a lot of time with a man who was short, bald, loud and had no teeth. All of the women in her circle found him adorable. It was her nephew who was only a few weeks old.

Both of my daughters really looked like little girls. Sometimes you just can't tell. Being half Pakistani they were born with plenty of hair. The nurses put bows in their hair. My very blond cousin didn't really have much hair until she was 3 years old.

There was a five-month-old little boy living near us in Cebu Philippines. His father is a handsome man and his mother is pretty. He looks like a miniature version of Chairman Mao. So not all babies look like Winston Churchill. In Kenya, many of the little boy babies look like a miniature version of Idi Amin, even when their mothers and fathers are quite slim.
