Hi all! Thank you, Panera Bread, for your free WiFi. I wish I could buy coffee from you.
Anyway, what a nice new thread! Pepper
, great news about your husband's job-- hooray! P&H-
- I hope all is well with the poison ivy, and what good news about the medical bills! Erica
-- WOOHOO, Jennings is nursing! I saw that on FB and wondered how things were going. Yay Jennings!
We're well. It's hot here. DS is definitely getting some teeth, but they're coming slllooowwwlly. He wants to nurse, but it hurts him to nurse, but maybe it makes him feel better to nurse... he just don't know what we wants. Teething tablets seem to help. He conks out soon after taking them....(?) Maybe it's just the distraction of the sweetness.Solids
: I have let him suck on a piece of cold cantaloupe I was eating because it seemed to help his teeth, and he grabbed my hand holding an apple and gnawed on the core with great enthusiasm. Otherwise, I have no interest at all in starting. Rhi, it sounds like it will be fun, but in a few years, she will be stealing the best bits from your plate. Hold off as long as possible
I love my in-laws, but my MIL frequently gives me advice from "Dr. Tanner," my BIL's pediatrician 20 years ago. Why, MIL? He was a big advocate of CIO, and my MIL totally followed his "prescription" to let my BIL CIO at night at 6 months.... at the same time
that he told MIL to start giving him solids because he wasn't nursing enough. Craziness. Anyway, MIL was suggesting solids for DS today on Dr. Tanner's 20 year old advice.
My darling daughter is such a handful, but goodness, she is so sweet. Her favorite movie right now is Pride and Prejudice
. She said to me yesterday, "Mommy, you know, that Lydia, she made a BAD choice marrying Wickham. When I grow up, I will make good choices and only marry a GOOD man." I was so proud
I can't believe we're already watching Pride and Prejudice together. Happiness.
