We've moved around. A lot. DS1 was born at a hospital. DS2 was born in a house we rented for a year and a half from my aunt. DD was born in the house we lived previous to buying the one we're in now. We are done having kids. No babies will be born here. And for some reason, that kind of makes me sad! I suppose as long as my aunt still owns that house we lived in, we can go back someday to show Henri where he was born. We would only be able to drive by the house Fleur was...

If the garden is your salvation, grow it! If it is just a chore, be minimal about it. That's my advice I have to say watching my babe crawl around in the mud and dirt was fabulous. He loves his veggies and I credit much of that to the fact we plant, water, feed, and harvest...
Fleur was born June 5th, heading towards the peak of cucumber season. I didn't stop doing anything, gardening-wise. The day after she was born I went out and weeded and picked some cukes...and I'm talking MAJOR weeding. I felt great after having her, though-tons of energy! A week after she was born we all went to a U-pick farm and picked strawberries! I just popped her in sling (I used a simple wrap made out of gauze material) and went about my work.

Secondly, you might want to see if maybe a different kind of bottle is easier for her to drink from. Are you 100% sure they're making her self-feed and that's why it's spilling? Could it be that it's dribbling out of her mouth...
They all apologized today. I explained to the classroom aids about pumping and all of that. So I guess we'll see if they'll be more on top of things from now on. Hopefully nothing will happen again.

The problems began about 6 weeks later, and they're all over the place, but seem to stem (I think) from anxiety and wanting individual attention, and...

I also thought "thyroid". I know a few people who developed hypothyroidism in childhood, and ALL of them lamented about constantly telling their parents how tired they were, but the parents shrugged it off as being something else and waited too long to...

We are letting him know that when we are speaking we are unhappy when he constantly interrupts, we are asking him to say "Excuse me." when he wants our attention. We are also setting a rule that he ask to get down from the table when he is done. This has helped a lot as he often has a mouthful...
