I think the problem partly is that he hasn't ever really slept over here, and not in that crib - except once - so he doesn't understand that the crib/toddler bed is for sleeping. When we move the one my dad made, it will be for DD, since the existing one has drop rails and doesn't seem to be horribly well made, at that, I don't trust a little baby to it. I think he will sleep in it eventually, although going to twin bed would be easier (I could lay down with him in it), but I need to give him time to get used to new bed in a new place.
MW: the difficulty I would have with the neighbor's boy is: what if he got injured in the process of breaking your furniture? That is a major safety concern. I know his mom is your friend and back up, but this kid needs to learn some courtesy or something - can you talk to her about it? I know in general, boys just play rough, etc, but there has to be limits.
I have no idea what blocking is either. I can follow instructions ok; I just forget or lose count of my stitches and so things end up uneven.
I honestly think the therapeautic massage has helped as much, if not more than, the chiro. It helps loosen up all the tightened muscles or something. I didn't notice much relief from the pain until I combined the two.
MW: I would wait until done with the ABX until treating the YI. otherwise you may just end up going in circles.
As for sushi: Unless you are eating massive amounts of it, there isn't a lot of fish in it, it is very small portions. So I think you are fine with your spicy tuna roll. I put Wasabi on all my sushi and I figure it has got to help with killing any of the icky stuff that might be in it. Plus so much of the fish that is used is either super fresh, or frozen in such a way as to kill bacteria (if I remember right). Sushi fish is also generally of really good quality. so I have very few qualms about consuming it.
That's like us and our Ikea. We are getting an Ikea finally.... but not until 2012. It seems forever away, especially since I drive by the site they are building at all the time, and can't figure out how it's going to take another year and a half. It sucks because right now I have to drive about 8 hours into the states for Ikea, and most things I want can't be ordered online. I should add that I've neevr actually -bought- anything yet at Ikea-- but I want to be able to!! Right now they have nightstands I badly want... but they don't ship them.
I should say I'm also the same with the crocheting. it's not that I don't understand the patterns or anything, but I get sidetracked and then all of a sudden realize I added an extra stitch or so... etc etc. Ooops!
I think I would bring up the neighbor boy in that same way-- bring it up as a concern of his safety-- but it will also let her know that he's been breaking your things.
With the YI, I think that also makes sense ot ifnish out the antibiotics first. After that, I would definately do the garlic (and perhaps at the same time), and I was wondering if hibiclens was available anywhere local, or if you can only order it online? Because it makes sense that it would help based on what it's supposed to do.
I'm thinking about names a lot lately, and trying to decide if I'm settled with the ones that seem to be sticking right now. Part of me worries that I'm settling with them just because DH likes them, and I'm too lazy to keep looking for new ones. lol. And don't get me wrong, I like them... I just want to make sure I still -love- them years down the road, you know? But it's so exhausting reading through repetitive name book after book after book. My style is slightly unique, but not unique enough to that the "names you would never name your baby" thread gives me any ideas, but then the books and naming sites are a bit too common.
Gah. Anyways, that's my current constant thoughts. The names we're using as kind of "the best" right now are Addison/Addelyn Grace (first one DH, second one mine), and Ryan Adlee. Like I said, I like them both, I'm just not sure they're the ones. It'll be easier after our ultrasound next week (hopefully baby cooperates!) because then we just have to worry about one name. For what it's worth, our last name is Brown, which seems so easy to match with... but sometimes not. Case in point, DH and I both love Seattle as a girls name. But it doesn't work with Grace, which DH really wants (Seattle Grace sounds wonderful-- but it's the hospital name from greys anatomy and we'd never live it down with how much I love that show), and Seattle Brown just doesn't... flow. So many decisions! Can't I just continue calling it monster?
