As MLog suggested, I figured we would copy FM's chat starter:
Baby's Age This Month:
How are you feeling/adjusting?:
Anything different/new than what you were expecting?:(about baby, parenthood, anything)
Any new tricks baby is trying out?
Baby's Age: Dodiboo will be SIX months old in a week! Too fast, too fast! Time needs to S-L-O-W down. We are halfway to the 1 year old mark! Any one else finding that crazy??
How I am feeling/adjusting? Well, I have discovered that my belly hangs so much lower than it use to. It seriously disturbs me. I am now at the point that I feel like body wise I should be showing some improvement back to pre-baby body. I haven't been doing my 3 mile walk as religiously as I should, and I have been imbibing on Coca cola a bit too much (ack!) and chocolate..and sweetened condensed milk mixed with peanut butter..mmm..where was I? Oh yeah...I just can't figure out why I am so fluffy! /sarcasm.
Anything different?: You know I have to say there are quite a few differences with things I like with this one vs. the others that have kind of changed my expectations. For instance, I really wanted baby gowns (you know the elasticized bottom gowns?) because I remember never having enough of those with the others. This time? Can't really stand them. Have hardly used them.
Same with the jumperoo, bought a baby einstein one used and we've used it all of 20 minutes maybe.
I didn't realize how much my viewpoint of tv and babies had changed since DD1. I use to let them watch Baby Einstein by this age, and now? Just don't really like tv for the 8 year old and under, let alone the baby.
I also don't baby wear like I use to. I baby wear in public (I found some awesome pottery barn curtains at Goodwill and made a cute pink gingham mei tei out of it *lined with organic bamboo fleece---so soft*) but I don't just baby wear around the house like I use to with the others. Maybe cause D. has her sisters to help entertain her?
I forgot how vulnerable having a baby makes you feel...6 months later it is starting to lessen, but not as much.
New Tricks: She is crawling, and trying to stand up. :( I think shes teething
General Stuff: I have felt hard core cramping the last 3 days...Maybe AF is coming back? What is your period like when bf'ing anyways? Lighter, heavier?
