I've always heard good reviews about balance bikes, but when I look at one I just wonder what is the difference between a balance bike and a regular kids bike with the pedals taken off? Is it really worth having a special bike?
filthy toys! 
Just wanted to see if anyone is still over here to say hello. Italiamom, I know you read sometimes but can't post... hello!    And someone mentioned they missed Copper Kettle, are you still here too?   Anyone else?   Things are going well for us right now. I quit my job in July when DH started his new job, so we swapped roles of being a WOH and SAH parent. He really misses River a ton, but I think he's happy to be moving forward with his career.

You're definitely not alone, I could have written your post myself word for word! I'm in a due date club 1+ years later and everyone but me seems to have baby fever already.

It's a closed system, meaning the milk doesn't run through the pump parts and have a chance to get molded. Plus it's the only pump I know of that meets the WHO guidelines. Here's the review that sold me on...
Whoot, whoot! Glad to have you over there CM!  
Ditto on the meetup, it was so wonderful to meet you in person :)   Please consider the FB thing. There are quite a few mamas who have fake FB names and only use it for this group. I miss you!
