Did I tell you guys that she LOVES taking a shower with me now? It has totally changed our days now because I can actually take a shower at reasonable time and not have to rush around getting ready for work at the last minute! I love it!
Aww cuddles with daddy make all kinds of hurts better <3
YAY Ava!! game changer! I feel so lucky to have a baby that loves the water and shower. Even from the beginning, she's been good for 10 minutes to sit in a bouncy or whatever, while I shower quickly. Once she started sitting up somewhat reliably I started bringing her in with me, and yeah, I could stay in until the water runs cold. She's also content now to sit in the bathroom and play, as long as I give her her bath toys. Showers = human!

When he woke up he got ahold of a bottle of ibuprofen. He kept throwing it in my lap and screaming when I told him he couldn't have any yet. Ryan has turned my baby into a druggie.
I guess that's one way to know that he needs medicine and it made him feel better.
LOL Ten giggles when I pull out her teething tabs. Like you said, I guess that's how you know they work!
Umm, so sleep last night-- not so great. She couldn't seem to stay asleep, tons of wakeups. Yawn. DH said he doesn't think it's working and wants to put the mattress back in her room. I want to give it one more night and see. It just worked so well the first night... *sigh* I know we'll figure it out, and she IS making progress. It just would have been so nice for this to work. I like having her in the room, but not in the bed. Oh well, keep trying!
And yeah... can't believe I forgot to tell you guys this... but I think I'm looking for a new doctor for Ten. Which I am so so sad about :( I LOVE that this doc is so low interventionist, non-alarmist. She's ok with delaying meds and trying natural things, letting the body fight off colds, etc. She's supportive of AP things. She doesn't ask if Ten is sleeping through the night, or how often she's nursing, or any of those things, just if I'm ok with it- because she says as long as I'm content, then the rest of it doesn't matter. When I mentioned delaying/selectively vaxxing, her response was "So you're going to breastfeed until at least age 2, right?" I love these kinds of things. But at Ten's visit on Thursday, she admitted that she's been thinking about it and looking at options, and she's not really comfortable with continuing to see Tenley if we still choose to forgo the pertussis vax. She's setting us up for a consult with a specialist to see if we can come to an agreement on vaxing, but said basically that if our answer is no, she doesn't feel comfortable being 'responsible for' a child in her practice that is at risk.
The ironic thing, is that we went into that appointment intending to talk to her about the pertussis, because with the recent outbreaks, DH was saying he was starting to feel like she should get it, but he wanted a bit more info. And now because the doctor pushed back, I think he's back at stage one, and just wants to switch doctors, even if we DO decide to get the vax. (Remember, he (and his whole family) don't like this doc to begin with, both because they think she should be seeing a ped, and because she was hesitant to prescribe the reflux meds).
Gah. I don't WANT to switch doctors. I like the fact that Ten and I see the same one. That she knows me, and knows my beliefs, and I feel comfortable being honest with her and standing up to her when I don't agree. I love that she's supportive and isn't one of those quacks who tells me she needs to nightwean, and we should let her CIO or she'll never develop properly.
Anyways, baby getting into trouble. Just had to update!!
