we have a maclaren triumph, it fits in the trunk of my vw rabbit with room to spare.
I get a lot of surprised looks when people find out ds doesn't know the things that they expect him to. he'll stare at their hand when they try to get him to give 5 (we have been working on this because it makes grandpa ). I don't have a lot of experience with young children so I don't know a lot of the games that are commonly played. he totally does the waving after everyone has left I think it's hilarious!
get a thermometer for your fridge. it might not be cold enough

I just want to share my experience with the copper iud. I had one inserted at ~8w PP after a c/s. my period returned around 10.5m PP. so far I've had what I suspect were two instances of anovulatory bleeding and two real periods (I am charting cm and o-pain but not temps, and obviously not for bc just for my own info). my period is not any heavier or crampier than it was prebaby. it may actually be less crampier. I only have one heavy day, and it's super tampon not...
if you're worried, calling the ped for reassurance is ok. the dr sears website has some general guidelines

well it looks like we will be taking him with us. there was a death in smil's family and the funeral is at the same time I don't feel comfortable asking anyone else to watch ds because of his food allergies (we're still getting used to the ourselves) thanks for the info lkmiscnet. I think he'll be ok in the stroller. I have some 'fresh' toys to bring out to hold his interest
I'm so nervous dh and I are closing on a house this week and it isn't possible for us to take ds (almost 13 mo) with us. I wouldn't be able to sign a million papers with him grabbing everything in sight. I have only ever left him with dh, and only for two hours max. no one besides me or dh has ever changed his diaper. my smil is going to come to our house to watch ds. he loves her and she really takes his food allergies seriously. I trust her not to just let him cry, and...
