Ad Astra ... Congrats! Let's see pictures and hear more, woman!
Isa .... Hallelujah! Congrats, mama! Pictures! Pictures! Welcome baby Edith! That was one of our top names for E, who has a different E name.
Rainbow ... With my first, we didn't acquire anything beforehand because I was feeling strangely superstitious (I'd had a couple of bad calls as a paramedic during my pregnancy) and even though people gave us lots, we were three hours from home, and had come in a rush without bringing a lot with us and we didn't get to go home for over a week.
E slept with us, although we'd set up a drawer to put her in at first. We had diapers, and a few outfits, a wrap, and toques, and a couple of blankets. I had heavy-duty pads, and lots of people to provide food and water. And a carseat. That's about it.
Ideally your boobs will work great, so that covers feeding for now.
To be honest, we didn't do anything differently with number two, even though we were only a few clicks from home. Although this time I had my nursing supplementer at the ready, because my boobs are epic fails when it comes to providing enough milk.
I'll be thinking of you on Tuesday.
Mami ... Yummy pictures of a yummy baby!
AmandaH ... Love the end-of-year coming out thing! How do you keep it hush-hush until then?
Sara ... Look at that gorgeous belly full o' babe! Hi in there, Soren!
Yellow ... Exciting to hear you talk about #3! Gorgeous pictures. Thanks for sharing.
HI TO EVERYONE ELSE!!!! xoxox
AFM: Must dash. I'll try to come back later and update on my mammoth six-month-old and all he's getting up to and my precocious three-year-old (who's nearly READING!), but I have to get to work on my mss. Later, folks!
