we went away for the weekend, and then when we came back dd got a cold.
her immune system tends to be weak when she is in the midst of hard core teething, so i guess it isn't a surprise, but a total bummer. i'm getting it now too, so ugh.
let's see---- twidling. i do not let dd twidle the other nipple. it just drives me crazy. especially since i'm afraid she is going to hurt me. :LOL the nails! the nails! so i hold the palm of my hand over that nipple, and let her play with the rest of that breast. she also rubs, pinches, tugs at my tummy, back, arm, neck, ect. i try really hard to keep her nails trim, but still have cut marks all over my chest.
: she does not do this while sleeping/night nursing, but rubs my back or tummy, which i love.
what do i do for me? um, not much. :LOL mdc, meditate, yoga, qi gong, writing....
food restrictions? lots of 'em.... i stay away from wheat, soy, citrus, caffine, no dairy of any kind.... suits me pretty well as i am mainly a raw food vegan. i had soy today, so i'll see what happens. dd's digestive system is better now that she is older, but her skin still breaks out if i eat the "wrong" thing.
i am jealous of you coffee drinkers. i have a decaf w/ soy milk latte every once few months. heaven!!!
dd's new activity is climbing. she can climb up the stairs, climb up into the rocker, ect. it is pretty exciting. she feels like a real champ when she does it.
oh, nick names--- lots of them. bugga (as in "bugga bugga boo, mama loves you.... :LOL) , monker (from monkey), bubba (from who knows where), katrinka (my mom's nickname for her)..... i guess that's it.
well, that's all for now.
