Haha, that's not horrible, it's just honest.  And totally valid!
Hugs, guys. I've only got one babe of my own but I've worked with roughly one billion babies, as a nanny and an Early Intervention Specialist, and I think that they all adjust to the outside world in very different ways. Keep in mind your babies are SO young still. The first few months is an intense adjustment period.   I was a nanny to twins from the day they came home from the hospital. Well, I was more like a postpartum doula. 40 hours a week plus a few overnights...
Re: the diaper dilemma... maybe just put her in a disposable for long walks?  I don't know.  Is she in cloth otherwise?  I know my DD will go for longer stretches while wearing a disposable, which is why we're doing them overnight for the time being.   Those temperatures are fine for baby!  I take my daughter outside if the sun is shining in just a onesie for a couple minutes so she can get some vitamin D.  And it's been in the 40s here.  I've taken her for walks when...
I got down to about 138 pre-pregnancy (after 4 months of eating all-raw), but hover around 144 when I'm eating cooked food, too.  Got up to about 180 or so, and am currently stuck at about 160.  Ugh.  I hate it.  I also feel that with these huge boobs and flabby belly I'm just all soft and jiggly and... ugh.   With the raw diet, I'd FINALLY gotten to a place where I felt amazing with how I looked... and then I went and got knocked up :)   I was an avid runner,...
Holy crap, J! That's amazing!
He DOES look like you.  KJ is like a 50/50 split between me and DH.  Then sometimes she looks JUST like my brother.  And other times JUST like one of her grandparents.  She's a total shape-shifter.  You gotta watch out for this one.  
These babies are stupid cute.  I seriously cannot deal.
Becky - Levi's ped sounds like a bully.  NOT ok.  Don't let yourself be pushed around.  Look, I get it - I'm SUPER anxious about how my parents (my mom especially) will respond if I decide not to vax, or even to delay them.  But at least she's coming from a place of genuine love and concern.  Look - do what you feel is right.  Can DH come with you to the ped to help back you up?  We're here for you, at least!   Thanks so much, everyone, for your feedback and input. ...
Hi ladies!   I know there is an entire forum dedicated to this topic, but as I "know" you guys, I'd really love some feedback/opinions on this from you. I do NOT want to start a debate, I just want to know how you made this decision. I have researched vaccines to death and I just keep going around in circles. I am so torn. Everything else I do for/with this baby has been such an obvious decision, from cosleeping to cloth diapering to breastfeeding to babywearing... a...
Good luck this weekend. DH and I moved to Oregon from CA a year ago February, and telling my family was brutal. I won't go into details until after you've gone through it first... but the end story is that everyone is ok, and yes, Skype is awesome, I JUST was on Skype about 10 minutes ago with my parents and little sister.  I stuck the baby's face in the camera and everyone was happy.  Also, I don't know if my relationship with my parents could be as healthy and...
