Adventures in Babysitting


Adventures in Babysitting



Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) agrees to babysit after her "dream" date stands her up. Expecting a dull evening, Chris settles down with three kids for a night of TV ... and boredom. But when her frantic friend Brenda calls and pleads to be rescued from the bus station in downtown Chicago, the evening soon explodes into an endless whirl of hair-raising adventures! Babysitter and kids leave their safe suburban surroundings and head for the heart of the big city, never imagining how terrifyingly funny their expedition will become.

Way before she grabbed an Oscar nomination for her searing performance as a world-weary prostitute in Leaving Las Vegas, Elisabeth Shue was known as one of the squeaky-clean actresses of the '80s. Having made a splash in The Karate Kid and the '60s-nostalgia TV series Call to Glory, Shue cemented her good-girl reputation with the charming but badly titled Adventures in Babysitting. Set in the John Hughes-style suburbs of Chicago, the titular adventures follow babysitter Chris (Shue), who agrees to watch the Anderson kids (Keith Coogan and Maia Brewton) when her boyfriend cancels their anniversary date. All is quiet on the home front until Chris is called upon to rescue her best friend (Penelope Ann Miller, also doing good-girl duty) from the seedy downtown bus station. She can't leave the kids, and she can't leave her friend alone in the big bad city, so she packs everyone in the station wagon and heads into Chicago. Screwball craziness begins as they encounter car thieves, knife-wielding gangs, gun-toting truck drivers, and, worst of all, Chris's duplicitous boyfriend. It's hardly mature entertainment, but Shue makes it work; when she wins over the audience at a blues club with her improv singing, you'll be won over, too. In his directorial debut, Chris Columbus (who later went on to helm the sap-fests Mrs. Doubtfire and Home Alone) gently skewers the suburbia white-bread mindset of the main characters, and plays up the comedy over the schmaltz with a subtlety of which he now seems incapable; the near romance between Shue and Coogan is played lightly and adorably. Look for brief appearances by art-house faves Lolita Davidovich as a college party girl and Vincent D'Onofrio as an unlikely savior. --Mark Englehart

Spent the day in the sun with friends and some film cameras. Baby A snuggled right into Kayla, my 15 year old wunderkid of a babysitter, for three hours of traipsing through Ottawa. He slept the whole time, bunny ears and all:).

Took this with my supersampler, but did not try out my Diana yet - tomorrow:)).

Thanks Ian for a great idea and for the 120 film. There are some awesome shots already posted by Nat from today. Film is fun:).

Luang Prabang Night Market Baby Bibs





The vendors sit on the ground here (both Laotians and Thais seem super human flexible in this way) with their goods spread out.

When you buy something, they take your money and slap it on every item they have for sale and chant, "Lucky lucky lucky." The people of Luang Prabang are very interested in luck.

Air People






Recorded for NPR:

Tired of the loneliness of major airports, while traveling, I decided to actually try talking to somebody. At first, I thought my pick, an elderly, dignified black woman, was confused because she kept repeating herself--"They don't believe in spanking and he's a bad grandbaby." "Time out?" I asked. Instantly she recognized the term and began repeating that too.

First airplane ride




First airplane ride





Elizabeth did so well! The first leg she nursed, played, napped, pooped, cried briefly when her ears popped on descent, and nursed again. The second leg the plane wasn't full so she got to sleep in her car seat. Lucky me! Grandmas and grandpas have gushed over her the entire trip. I am tired and miss Josh but am excited to see my family. I was nervous when she blew out the first disposable I put her in this morning at home but so far the rest have held. I packed cloth but wasn't going to deal with it on the plane. Traveling with a baby is tiring (or am I conditioned to sleep on planes?) but not bad!

In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States


In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States



Filled with a wide array of illustrations, this book offers a fresh perspective on surrealism as it spotlights the important role that North American women artists played in the movement. The surrealist movement in art is most often identified with male artists, many of whom objectified women in their paintings, casting them as sexual or symbolic ideals. Conversely, the female artists of the movement delved primarily into their own subconscious and dreams. This volume features the work of
48 Mexican and U.S.-based women artists whose contributions to the surrealist movement span more than four decades and whose work was both influential and radical in its own right. Thematically arranged, it includes more than 250 full-color images along with several essays exploring the effects of
geography and gender on the movement. This unique book illustrates surrealism as a gateway to self-discovery, especially in North America, where women artists were freed from oppressive European traditions and the vagaries of war. From 1931, the year of Lee Miller's first surreal photograph, to 1968,
when Yayoi Kusama presented her landmark happening "Alice in Wonderland" in New York's Central Park, the artists and works depicted here are both significant and extraordinary in their explorations of personal and universal truths.

Nothing is working!! Aaahhh! I'm so tired.

Amelia is teething...I guess. No tooth sighting yet, but she's warm and chewing a lot.

Finally, Luke took her for a car ride (in the snow...grrr) and she conked out. I left her in her car seat for now. I hear of a lot of people doing that, so I guess it is fine until she wakes up. This way, she'll get really into sleeping and then she won't have such a hard time falling back to sleep when she wakes up in the night. We have so many accessories, but nothing seems to work.

Day Fourty Five




Day Fourty Five





So we were all home and Isobel was crawling around as she usually does and she was in her favourite place (hanging onto the Rubbermaid container) and I had to go to the bathroom (which is about 5 meters along her eyeline) and according to Brandi she rested her chin on the Rubbermaid container when I went in there and stayed in that position until I came out and then she lifted her head up and grinned. She's so cute.

She woke up early again so we were on the go starting at 6 today. For the most part her schedule was an hour early but then her afternoon nap solved that, in addition to the fact that Brandi got home a little early as well.

We also walked up to the nurses station on Hornby and Drake to weigh her as she's 8 months old today. She was 13.10.2 pounds (6193g) and was 25 inches (63.5 cm) long. So she's still a really small baby but since she's got all this baby fat on her, chubby little legs, neck rolls, etc and developmentally she's ahead of the curve we're still not really that worried about her. When I hold her I notice her little heart racing. I suspect she's just got a super high metabolism. I'm sure she'll be keen on that as she gets older.

We went for a second walk when Brandi got home as more of her "get more exercise" plan. Since I forgot our emergency pack at the clinic (we have this little emergency kit under the stroller for when I don't want to lug our backpack/diaper bag around, couple diapers, wipes, cloth for laying baby on and a breastfeeding blanket) we walked back there to retrieve it, it was there, and then went to pick up some Stepho's (cheap Greek food) and back home. She was pretty tired so while Brandi scrubbed her feet with a rock I tried to calm her to sleep. She went with barely a fight at like 7:30.

She woke up as I prepared to write this up (like 10:00) and since I forgot to use Brandi's breast milk she had pumped yesterday I was in charge of the first feeding of the night. She drank it down and I plopped her back in the crib. She cried when I took the empty to the sink but calmed down when I went back to rub her back and fell asleep directly.











Mini-me?




Mini-me?





We went to feed Lucy tonight. I was worried that she would sleep the
entire time. I was a little worried that she had forgotten me. But she
was pretty alert and I believe she remembers me. She even did a great
job latching on. Now if I could only sit long enough to feed her.

The last time I saw her in person, I thought she really looks like
Alex. It is a little strange to wrap your head around breastfeeding
your brother and not be weirdes out. But tonight, I think that she
looks like my baby pictures. It's amazing how she changes everyday.

Based on my limited breastfeeding experience, it reminds me of Dorothy
walking through the field of poppies on the Wizard of Oz. One night I
tried to feed her for over an hour on the left side. By the time I
moved to the right, I fell asleep within five minutes. Goodbye any
mild form of insomnia I may ever have. I just need that baby topless
snuggled up under my boob. It is all I can do to keep my eyes open
right now. And she's not even home yet.

I have taken full advantage of having these few days to settle in
while she bathes under the sun lamps in the hospital nursery. I have
learned how to crawl in and out of bed on my hands and knees. We've
unpacked and put away my overpacked hospital suitcase. Plus I've had
two in-house acupuncture appointments. That's the great thing about
living in Chinatown. Dr. Wu is right next door. I needed to get in a
lot better shape to take care of her when she finally arrives home.
And I think that it worked.

I'm hopeful that tonight will be my last night that doesn't include a
diaper change. In fact, I haven't changed a diaper yet. Tomorrow is
our eighth wedding anniversary and I can't think of a better gift for
Henry. (And me!) I failed Valentine's this year. And I no longer need
the prenatal/couple's massage I had intended to schedule for this
past Saturday. I'm glad I forgot to make the call.

Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby






“TRACY HOGG HAS GIVEN PARENTS A GREAT GIFT–the ability to develop early insight into their child’s temperament.”
–Los Angeles Family

When Tracy Hogg’s Secrets of the Baby Whisperer was first published, it soared onto bestseller lists across the country. Parents everywhere became “whisperers” to their newborns, amazed that they could actually communicate with their baby within weeks of their child’s birth. Tracy gave parents what for some amounted to a miracle: the ability to understand their baby’s every coo and cry so that they could tell immediately if the baby was hungry, tired, in real distress, or just in need of a little TLC. Tracy also dispelled the insidious myth that parents must go sleepless for the first year of a baby’s life–because a happy baby sleeps through the night. Now you too can benefit from Tracy’s more than twenty years’ experience. In this groundbreaking book, she shares simple, accessible programs in which you will learn:

• E.A.S.Y.–how to get baby to eat, play, and sleep on a schedule that will make every member of the household’s life easier and happier.
• S.L.O.W.–how to interpret what your baby is trying to tell you (so you don’t try to feed him when he really wants a nap).
• How to identify which type of baby yours is–Angel, Textbook, Touchy, Spirited, or Grumpy–and then learn the best way to interact with that type.
• Tracy’s Three Day Magic–how to change any and all bad habits (yours and the baby’s) in just three days.

At the heart of Tracy’s simple but profound message: treat the baby as you would like to be treated yourself. Reassuring, down-to-earth, and often flying in the face of conventional wisdom, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer promises parents not only a healthier, happier baby but a more relaxed and happy household as well.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

The last thing new parents can find time for is quiet reading, so many helpful books on infant care rely on bullet points and a "let's get to the point" writing style. Tracy Hogg, a neonatal nurse, teacher, and mother of two, uses these techniques to good effect in Secrets of the Baby Whisperer. Focusing on newborns and their parents, her simple programs are a blend of intelligent intuition and methods based on years of experience. The first half of the book is devoted to E.A.S.Y--her name for creating a structured daily routine for you and your baby that makes the most of your baby's awake times and also leaves time just for you. These concepts aren't designed to force your bundle of joy into not following her body's needs, but rather to create a feasible middle ground between total rigidity and on-demand food and sleep (and no time for mom to shower). If it still strikes you as too regimented, keep reading. The author makes room for differences in personal style and includes short quizzes to determine whether you're a "planner" or a "winger", and what level of daily structure you are likely to find helpful. In the same chapter, she identifies five general temperaments of infants, how to get an accurate feel for yours, and what methods of care are likely to be the most effective for his temperament. Her statement that babies prefer routine is backed up by research from the University of Denver. While most of the book relies on anecdotes to get the points across, Hogg does find room to back up some of her statements with quotes from various researchers and institutions. Included at the end of the book are assurances that E.A.S.Y. can be followed even with a colicky baby or one who's been ruling the roost for the first few months. Frustrated parents might like to read the last page first: "all the baby-whispering advice in the world is useless unless you're having a good time being a parent" is an excellent reminder to enjoy this time with all of its ups and downs. --Jill Lightner
