hey ladies! finally got done reading thru march...I've not been able to get much computer time lately. Last time I posted emily had just got her 1000 and we were discussing nightweaning a little bit. And wow so much has been going on since then!!
I am so glad someone brought up nightweaning. I have been considering it for the last oh probably month or so. I don't think I will actually be doing it for awhile but it was nice to know I wasn't the only one considering it
Once it gets warm enough to sleep downstairs, though, we will be moving Jackson to his own room down there and I will be going down there when he wakes at night to nurse him. I am not really sure how this is going to work out but we will see. I am hoping he will sleep some longer stretches but I realize it may not happen that way
I love having J in our room but dh wants to start the transition to his own room and I am ok with trying now, but if it's not working out I will either be sleeping downstairs a whole lot or mving J back upstairs. Of course dh is also after me to start weaning altogether, but that is a whole nother ball game
maybe I will get into it later
let's see what else I can remember...
alfie kohn : I did not know he had a parenting book. I have read lots of his articles, mainly stuff related to teaching (grades, homework, testing, praise in the classroom) and what he said really resonated with me as far as that goes. maybe I will check out that book.
Like terran, Jackson loves eating when we give him bites from our hands
He is not into eating as much in the high chair, hates bibs. He's my little snacker!
Dea, I am holding my breath for you and a christmas baby
Teeny, hope your wrist is healing well!
Emily, I am sincerely sorry for your losses and glad you have fun at the wedding!
Sarah Lynne, I just wanted to say marriage trouble sucks and I hope you can work through everything
I am sure there are some big things I Am missing but that's about all I can remember atm.
family planning: dh would be fine with just one but I really want at least 2, maybe 3 so we will most likely have one more
I want to start ttc next summer (when Jackson is about 2 1/2), I would start when he turns 2 but dh really does NOT want a xmas baby and I also don't want #2 's b-day too close to Jackson's so we will probably wait until June/July
I also have several friends who are planning to ttc around the same time
so it will be fun!
Jackson is definitely moving into toddlerhood so I am excited to move up to this forum
I am going to try to be around more because I like you guys! Although what with trying to get my yard under control, starting a playgroup in my neighborhood (any advice on that btw?? I am totally winging it), attempting to start a babysitting biz, keeping my jewelry biz going and helping my friend w/ her wedding we shall see. I do always read though, and think of you all at random times, even if I don't get a chance to post.
ps. Rachel, I have a friend of a friend who's ds didn't walk until 18mo. One day he stood up and walked across the room...
