The thing about a baby is, you can't argue with one. Whe babies are born, they exist at least for a little while on their own terms. You may rejoice or despair, you may accept or deny, you may file a lawsuit or write a dissertation or get drunk or knit booties. It makes no difference to the baby. It keeps on being a baby in spite of us.That's what makes a baby such a profoundly appealing symbol of the Christmas season. In birth, a baby doesn't stand for anything so particularistic as a body of religious tenets or a philosophical system.

The gift arrived a little late -- around 2 a.m. Dec. 26 -- and the delivery was handled by a medical team of 27 doctors, nurses and technicians instead of Santa and the reindeer. But Mary Beth and Donal Sullivan, who became the parents of four -- count 'em: four -- babies at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, wouldn't change a thing about this Christmas.The Odenton couple got exactly what they wanted: two healthy boys and two healthy girls."It's the greatest Christmas present in the world," said Mr. Sullivan, who appeared with his wife at a press conference yesterday at the children's center.

When you enter grandparent land, the first thing you are asked upon your arrival is, "Do they know what they are having?" By this it is meant, do the parents know what sex the baby is, not whether they are having an alien or a box turtle. The second question — and it is only asked by women of women — is, "Do you know what you want to be called?" This is a lot harder to answer, especially if you are having a hard time seeing yourself as a grandmother because you still think of yourself as a thirty-something.

Did you hear Time has named its Person of the Year and The Voice has a new winner? Bored? Not impressed? Well, what if I told you I had a video of a  GOLDEN EAGLE snatching a BABY !!!!!  YouTube and Reddit are buzzing this morning with a video purportedly out of Canada that shows a large bird momentarily picking up a small child. Don't worry the kiddie was not whisked away to the nest atop Death Mountain. The video is probably fake, but that hasn't stopped people from freaking out and watching, including me. [UPDATE: Yup, the video is fake.]

Lesley Brown, who was the first mother to have a child via in vitro fertilization, has died, according to the Telegraph. The birth of her daughter Louise made history in 1978. Lesley died at age 64 after a brief illness. Sad news indeed -- she went through the procedures after nine years of trying to get pregnant on her own, according to MSNBC . As the mother of a 4-year-old son conceived through IVF, I'm so thankful for the bravery of the family and for the pioneering researchers, as well.

Q: Is it bad for a baby to get more than one vaccination on the same day? My doctor wants to give my daughter several at once, so I don't have to make so many appointments but I'm worried it won't be good for her. I'd like your opinion.A: Many, many careful studies have been done on giving vaccines together. They show that it is both safe and practical to give several different vaccines on the same day.When the studies were done the researchers looked carefully at both the side effects of the vaccines (like fever and soreness)

Richard Maltby Jr. and David Shire's 1983 musical Baby is designed to appeal to anyone who's about to be a parent, has ever been a parent or just hopes to be a parent. In other words, it's got broad appeal. At Dundalk Community Theatre, that appeal is enhanced by a strong contingent of lead performers, who portray three couples at different stages in life - the central gimmick in Sybille Pearson's clever script. Lauren Spencer-Harris and Brent Bell play unmarried college students surprised to discover they're going to be parents.

Turner said she never gave it a second thought Friday when she asked a woman she has known for 21 years to drop off her 14-month-old daughter at a baby sitter.But that was the last Ms. Turner has seen of her daughter, Jessica Alexandra Marie James, or the woman entrusted with taking her to the baby sitter, Christy Ann Pankey, 39, of the 6100 block of Foreland Garth, Columbia."I've called everyone that I could think of," Ms. Turner said. "No one has seen or heard from them."Dennis S. Hill, a police spokesman, said Teletypes have been sent to Washington, D.C., and areas of New York and West Virginia where Ms. Pankey is known to have friends or relatives, but no one has reported seeing Ms. Pankey or the baby.

SAN DIEGO -- Benito Santiago, the San Diego Padres' All-Star catcher, accused manager Greg Riddoch of treating him like a baby yesterday, one day after Riddoch yanked Santiago out of the lineup for "lack of hustle.""Why do we have to start this [stuff] again?" Santiago said. "Every year, they try to make me look like a little baby. [Riddoch] knows I play 100 percent for him."Riddoch pulled Santiago after the fourth inning Thursday, when Santiago slowed on his way to first after grounding to Houston Astros shortstop Eric Yelding.

~TC I SEE WHERE the baby-sitting industry has been rocked by two major developments that threaten the livelihood of all those bratty 15-year-olds who traditionally dominate the profession.The first is a series of steady rate increases and perquisites (cooking the baby sitter's favorite food, renting whatever movie the baby sitter wants to see, etc.) agreed to by some desperate parents, which has set off a good deal of grumbling among other parents who are not -- how to put this delicately?
