    Wow! Look at you and your cracker family getting all ghetto! Word up, Sista!

    Aw, what a cute baby!
    You better take the permanent fix if you no want human baby #3. Yup, my sweet third was a whoopsie when her brothers were 10 and 7, cuz dear old hubby wouldn’t get his junk rewired.
    It’s all good now.

    I’m going to be in Duluth next month visiting my family… Nice to see the adition to yours.

    So your baby is a teen now???

  7. Shari says:

    Hey, you can tell your baby to take a hike. Better give the baby something else to play with besides the stuffed toy before she tears down more trees.

    I was going to ask if you even knew what gender it was, but that came out towards the end of your post. Shucks.

    You have a way with words Jaw C. Lin.

    One day my wife’s mom showed her a diaphragm and said, “see this? Your baby brother went right through this …”

    The Wife was 6.

    Wow! That’s even better than a puppy that pees on the carpet.

  12. Hammer says:

    hehe you had me going for a second.

    Worthy cause. you have a lot more energy than I do 🙂

  13. furiousBall says:

    That question of the third short person is a good one. You know you might have the egg of Einstein in there or the egg of Jeremy Pivens…not that Mr. Pivens is a bad guy, but he sure does play smarmy really, really well. The world seems good with the smarmitude…ness.

    LMAO, you crack me up jocelyn. Thank God you have a creative outlet for your whackiness and we have the benefit of your writing.

    Congrats on the new baby.
    I always tell folks who are later on in their years when they wish they could have another baby to go get a puppy!
    That will cure you real

  15. Jazz says:

    Well, congratulations on your bouncing baby… um… trail.

  16. Jeannie says:

    Good bit of redirection. When I was in the child bearing years, so many were “oops”ing that when asked, I’d say we were planning 2 and 1 surprise. So I got pregnant twice but had 3.

  17. my4kids says:

    Okay you had me trying to figure out if you were anouncing something on the way there for a moment. Thats cool though adopting a trail!

  18. Balou says:

    Well congratulations! You are a good secret keeper. The baby pastel branch clipper is on it’s way. 😉

  19. Diesel says:

    Baby has talent. I think she’s going to be really big some day.

  20. velvet says:

    I always wanted three kids because of my own personal experience, namely that I would have liked to have had more sibling options than my one older brother.

    Of course, after having two I soooo don’t want to go back and revisit the high-maintenance baby stage.

    Congrats on the bouncy baby trail.

  21. My Reflecting Pool says:

    giggled my way through this post. Thanks, needed that! Adoption is a beautiful thing.

  22. urban-urchin says:

    you have a lovely baby.

    I still occassionally get the pangs in my ovaries but then reality kicks me in the butt (or bites me on the arm in the case of the boy) and I realize that the husband getting the snippity snip was a very.good.thing.

    Besides- when the kids are a bit older, we can adopt a needy trail somewhere…. 🙂

  23. tracey says:

    Joc, you just crack me up some days. Most days, actually. Congratulations on your adoption…not as cute as my new neices, but definitely fewer diapers, lol!

    Me? I’ll just continue adopting horses…

  24. Dan says:

    That is SO COOL hat you adopted that trail! Laura and I have contemplated this for some time as well. Perhaps you’re inspired us! 🙂

  25. lushgurl says:

    Awww, how sweet for all of you! But I’m thinkin’ it might be time to work on the real thing…after all, I’m done popppin’ out chilluns so you and all my other married gurl friends ought to do it for me!!! Oh, and I have an available teenager for bavy sitting purposes!

  26. jen says:

    i know this angst, this bittersweet sort of deciding. and yet look at all this joy and love in your family, how much more sugary it makes it all.

  27. Diesel says:

    Hey Jocelyn, I’ve got a q for you. Send me an email at diesel -at-, wouldja?

  28. Keshi says:

    Cute blue bunny Jocelyn.

    Baby bubzz a baloomaaa! 🙂

  29. actonbell says:

    Wonderful. Now, that’s the type of adoption I might be able to handle.

    Great post!

  30. Naughty says:

    Haha, totally had me going. Fab post.

    Has made me yearn for kids of my own even more now! Like your first 2 that is……..don’t think I have the patience for the 3rd type.

  31. MyUtopia says:

    What a great post! My husband and I are looking to start a family soon.

  32. CS says:

    Good choice on the adoption – nice to have a baby that doesn’t keep you up every night. Much as I love babies (and I really, really love babies), I’m good with just the two. Someone I am dating said recently “I guess I’ll never have children at this point…unless you get pregnant!” I think my blanching may have said it all.

  33. lime says:

    i gotta say in having kids i think even numbers are the way to go….2 or 4…not 3 there’s always an odd man out with 3… plus when i had #3 it occured to me that hubby and i were now outnumbered and i now had more children than hands…quite the revelation…that being said #3 is my sanity…

    how interesting to see what baby is growing into!

  34. Glamourpuss says:

    I admire anyone who can raise children – teaching them was more than enough for me.


  35. Angela says:

    Mommy J ~ thanks so much for putting into words the pangs I’ve been feeling as my few remaining eggs shrivel into sandstones, as well. What *is* that feeling? Agh. It’s awful. Looks like I need to go find me a relatively low-maintenance BAY-BEE, too. Anything’s pretty much low maintenance after a real one, yes? Fabulously written. Thanks for the smiles today!
