Cristeen I am so happy to hear from you! And so thrilled baby is recovering so well, and that your DS loves her, etc etc. sorry about the potty regressions though - fairly typical though I can imagine if my DS pulled a potty regression on top of everything else he is testing me with these days it would throw me over the edge - he is a bit older than your DSthough, he will be 4 in November.
On that subject - oh this week is so crappy! DH gone til Saturday morning and DS1 who typically sleeps soundly 7:30 to 7:30 (again he is 3.5 years old) is suddenly waking up for GOOD at 5 am or earlier??! I honestly think he Iis doing it to test me. So even if the baby goes back to sleep after waking up at 4:30 to nurse, DS1 is waking both of us up by purposefully stomping his feet and being an overall pain. I know he is trying to get attention but with me solo parenting I honestly don't care why he is doing it, it just makes me mad
My mantra "this too shall pass," only works to a point... I breathe in-breathe out, then I cry, then I gulp down coffee and pray that Saturday comes quickly ...
I also am impressed with the half marathon goal. I've been thinking about a race to train for - good to have a specific goal, but I also don't want to set myself up for failure ... Going to first see if I can manage to get to the gym every day when I get back to work august 20 - even if for just 20 minutes. That is my first goal.
One extremely positive experience this week: with my mom visiting from nyc this week and babysitting during the day i was able to go to my first studio yoga class yesterday at the Baptiste power yoga place I was going to regularly before getting pregnant. OMG it was amazing! There was no doubt in my mind that if I did that two or three times a week moving forward it would have such a positive impact mentally and physically ... However, it will be super hard to manage even once a week once my parents leave and I have to rely on DH to watch baby during the class. And then fit it into my work schedule ... Oy.
MLog: I have a K'Tan and a boba too! Baby loves the boba. He would always nap in the K'Tan too for the first weeks but I haven't put him in it since getting the boba, and now he is giant ... But I really do like the simplicity of the K'Tan - I was thinking of trying again when he is ready to put out his legs. Are you using the newborn hold for both carriers?
I have this weird situation where Kai is enormous - really chunky and really long/Tall, so he seems like he would begone spreading out his legs in the carrier but he still really likes being scrunched up on my body like a newborn
I didn't get my ergo with DS1 until he was 4 months old, so I didnt experience/don't know if other two month old babies are getting carried with their legs out or not?
I also am missing mamas here- I wonder how poppy and linnie3 are doing?
Oh - and Astraia- order the blankets! They are the best. You won't regret it they are beautiful and the best swaddlers and so big - and great in the heat
