My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

i think it's great having your blog up on the computer. does any of your co-workers mind?

Nope, but it's "against the rules"

great pictures. but why do you have more of sugars than the boys? have they been slighted in this process?

Not bloody likely. We have a bunch of pictures of the boys and none (till now) of her. Especially with school pictures, so I decided to get a few of her alone to even out the score a bit.

Your kids don't look like they have special needs. They look healthy and normal to me. (?)

Well, you wouldn't know till you tried to talk to them. Their special needs are in the form of developmental delays particularly speech. The boys quite possibly have a mild form of autism. For example, Gator is 3 and should at this point be talking using 3 word phrases and have about 100 words. Well, he has about 25 words and has two 2 word phrases, all the rest of his communication is done using single words, gestures and crying. He went for his 3 year check up today. Our Pediatrician had a Nurse Practitioner student working with him so we let her see Gator, then the Pedi followup. She was asking Gator if it was ok for her to look in his ears. He just looked at her and smiled. She kept talking to him and asking. I finally had to tell her that he wasn't going to talk to her and to just do her thing. (ouch...sigh).

Does that little Sugars EVER have a frown on her face?

only when she is hungry or exceptionally tired. She like her brothers before her is generally a happy baby.

Now, for a book review.

If you ever go looking for a good book, I recommend Alexander McCall Smith's series The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency.

From the 3rd book in the series Morality for Beautiful Girls that I just finished I must share the following:

"She had a taste for sugar, however, and this meant that a doughnut or a cake might follow the sandwich. She was a traditionally built lady, after all, and she did not have to worry about dress size, unlike those poor, neurotic people who were always looking in mirrors and thinking that they were too big. What was too big, anyway? Who was to tell another person what size they should be? It was a form of dictatorship, by the thin, and she was not having any of it. If these thin people became any more insistent, then the more generously sized people would just have to sit on them. Yes, that would teach them! Hah!"
