I'm with you in finding someone else to be godparent! Before I became a mom my friends were very different than they are now - nowadays I do find myself hanging out mostly with people whose parenting ideas are close to mine. This has meant a bit of a restructure for us - but I think it's been worth it. I really think that when one spends a lot of time thinking about and researching parenting - as well as going on human instinct (which, lets face it, is DRAMATICALLY...
Hello all, I am in a rather interesting situation and would appreciate some feedback, views or help from you all! I've recently become a single mum - our family has been the victim of some serious alcoholism and I chose to leave in April - and am currently staying with my mother. The childhood I had in my mother's care has since time immemorial been...difficult. I moved out at 16 - as did my two sisters after me - and now that I'm a parent, I am going on instinct and...
I am so sorry Laura. It's indescribable, that feeling. I've been there too. So much love and SO many hugs to you, mama. XXXXXX
I'm so sorry mama... I've lost a little girl too. I have Bella now, I had her 15 months after Josie died, but I have a Josie shaped spot in my heart that will be there forever. I can only say that I know how you feel to a certain extent, having lost a child myself. I wish I could hug you. I'm so sorry. I wish this never, ever had to happen. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Well, Bella's the same way - I kind of encouraged her to find the thumb - she never would take the paci. So now she sucks both thumbs AND lately, her two middle fingers too! It took her a while to be able to find them all the time though. It's terribly cute... XXX
Fantastic! Now I desperately want to know how it all went! Would LOVE love love to hear a condensed version of the birth story whenever you feel like getting on here - this is just SO exciting! CONGRATULATIONS Ann - big, big hugs and snuggles to you all! XXXXX
I kinda have a different approach to this whole scenario! So I think I will add it in! Bella just exudes personality - she smiles a LOT and is very alert and terribly engaging. She's also just the sweetest little thing to look at, for sure, like most every baby! I think what does it though is her personality, you know? People will come up and just go crazy over her multiple times in WalMart - and there she is, just smiling and laughing at them - it's super sweet and quite...
Bella found her thumb about ten days ago or something - she'd found it twice before then - once in the hospital and once at about a month old on a trip to Menards :P It's actually nice for her because instead of becoming upset when she can't comfort nurse, she'll happily suck on her thumb. By no means does she suck on it all night long - just until she's asleep, and then it comes out. After that not until she wakes up, and if I'm not there she will suck it and when I come...
Okay, fixed - sorry!
Not sick! Not sick at all! I will give some piccies here too: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...3&id=808179417 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...d=427696914417 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...d=427696904417 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...d=427696899417 http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...d=427696894417
