Lauren, so glad Robin is adjusting well to daycare! Good to hear... Boo on the housecleaning wars
: we've had those ourselves from time to time.
OOhh, Dea, holy crap, that doesn't sound like a "vacation" to me... 10 days of an imposing MIL. Glad you survived it. I don't know anything about the BP and home birth risk.
Ah Rynna, dude, I would probably be horrible and end up breaking something of Mike's were I in your situation (less out of spite than anger), you sound like you're handling it remarkably well. I don't know how you keep him around, truth be told.
Ras, as others have said - puzzles! What a great idea! I've not really done any with DD, so I have no idea how she'd do with them.
Nice to see you Helen.
HeatherRenee, glad you're here. It's nice to keep the conversation going. I've been dissappointed in other groups, too, but this one keeps on truckin'! I like that.
Nara and the DSC are doing well. I just love to sit there and watch them play together. The DSC have been playing hide and seek with the neighborhood kids alot lately, and now Nara will cover her eyes and say "un, ooo, eee, or, iwe, ix, eben..." I am more and more amazed by her ability to communicate. I should have known with the whole "ah-ah" thing at day four, but wow. This girl really knows what she's talking about - not just repeating thigns. The other day I was nursing her and going on and on to DH about "mommy" vs "momma" and how I much prefer "momma" and DH was giving his imput. Nara popped off, looked me right in the eye and said "mom" *pause* "mee" and then gave me the biggest $#!* eating crinkly grin and started giggling. Seriously... this girl... She's gonna give me a run for my money, huh?
