Thanks for the support everyone. It's not my first choice of places to go, but overall my mil is easy to get along with. You know, except they think we are nuts for traveling in a bus and wanting to move to South America..post #103 of 3252/10/13 at 1:29pmpost #104 of 3252/10/13 at 1:47pm
Eli slowed down a little too ... well height wise. I was scared he would be a giant My hubby is really tall, so I guess that is why he is so tall! He is taller than most 2 year olds at the playground! So funny... He must be in the high 20s for weight. Probably 28 lbs? I don't have an accurate scale to weigh the little man on so I don't know. He is in 18-24 month clothes. We laugh because he has a little belly
The little poppet isnt feeling so well today. He woke up a few times in the night, crying ... :( I felt sad for him. He woke at 8:30am this morning with a temperature. He has been miserable all day. Whining, crying ... and just hanging out snuggling against me. I can tell he isn't well ... no playing. Just sitting with me. I finally managed to put him down for a nap. I need to cook lunch for when my hubby comes home from work, so it is good timing. Eli seems to have a cough too, I hope he isn't getting a full on cold or worse, the flu :( We were doing really well staying healthy. Crossing my fingers that we can get Eli feeling better soon!
*sigh* I could use a vacation right now ...
Ash, I am glad Bettie got to go home, and I pray she will start getting better soon!post #105 of 3252/10/13 at 3:50pmGlad to hear Bettie is home! Yay!
Not sure how much Sora weighs but she has been wearing 18-24 mo clothes for a while and is almost exclusively in 24 mo now. I've even put her in 2T for the added length!
Sora hit me in the eye today and my vision is a little blurry. Has anybody here ever scratched their eye before, and if so, what do you do to help it? My eye hurts and I'm sitting here at work staring at a computer screen for 6 hours so I'm grumpy as heck... I'm working so slowly with the blurriness. Ughhhpost #106 of 3252/10/13 at 5:21pm
I've been thinking about Bettie and I'm so happy to hear she is home!
I scratched my eye once and I had to wear an eye patch for a couple days. I think I had to put drops in my eye too. If it still hurts and is blurry tomorrow I would have it looked at.
I don't know how much Audrey weighs but she is in mostly 18 month clothes. Her pants are still a little long but the 12 month stuff is too small.post #107 of 3252/10/13 at 5:33pmBettie is still in 9 or 12 months. Anything bigger is way too big. She had a giant belly for a bit but its long gone! And yes, she is walking again. She is wobbly, but starting to get back to normal.
Joanie, I have never scratched my eye but that would be so irritating. It would make me cranky too!post #108 of 3252/10/13 at 6:13pmThread Starterpost #109 of 3252/10/13 at 6:28pmpost #110 of 3252/10/13 at 6:46pmShay is pretty solidly in 2t. His 18 month stuff is too short. Soren is bitty but he needs 12 months for height.
Joanie, Shay scratched his cornea 8 months ago (it was visible to the naked eye in his case) and they gave him antibiotic ointment. It was healed in less than 24 hours. I have been hit in the eye with my eye closed and had blurry vision for a few hours that corrected itself. No idea which you have. I hope it's better soon.post #111 of 3252/11/13 at 4:21pmpost #112 of 3252/11/13 at 7:55pmpost #113 of 3252/11/13 at 8:15pmpost #114 of 3252/12/13 at 5:25amQuote:
Haha! Greta is a non-talker too...
Ash, so glad you guys are finally home! Now for a speedy recovery so life can get back to normal for you!
Size... Greta is pretty average. I think she was around 22 lbs at her last appt. She can still wear a lot of 12 month stuff because she's pretty short, but her 18 month stuff is fitting her better lately. She must have had a growth spurt, because I put some 18 month stuff on her at Christmas time and it was too big, now it fits pretty well. 12-18 months would be her ideal size, but Carters doesn't carry that size. ;)post #115 of 3252/12/13 at 7:19am
We made it to Omaha, NE!! We got up yesterday at 3:00am and were on the road at 3:45. Getting up early worked out really well, it was WAY worth a day of sleep deprivation! I was really nervous about driving 12 hours with all 3 of my kids, but everyone did really well and there was almost no crying (which is a miracle really!). The kids slept for the first 4 hours and then by the time they were getting sick of being the car they fell asleep for a good long nap. Now we alone at my IL's house in NE (they work in SD a few days during the week). This house is huge! Anyway, my FIL made a nice space in the basement for the puppies and everyone is settled in nicely.
Coralie is having a language explosion. I'd guess she says 2-3 new words a day and uses them consistently. She loves the word 'no', but uses it pretty accurately, like when I went to put her back in her carseat yesterday after 1 of our potty breaks.post #116 of 3252/12/13 at 7:24amUgh, been hectic here. We managed to stay healthy all winter and then wham! My husband got the norovirus, it was doing the rounds at his work. He was so sick. It is a 24 hr bug but they are mandated to stay home 48 hrs because of their sensitive work environment (he works in long term care with Alzheimer's patients). Eli has had a fever for the last 3 days. It was manageable but he was super grumpy. I got up every 10 minutes last night. I am so tired.... Thankfully my hubby is home and healthy again, and will be able to watch Eli later so I can sleep.post #117 of 3252/12/13 at 9:38amOren is in some 12-18 month clothes, but more and more 18-24 month clothes. I don't know how much he weighs, but I suspect around 25 lbs.
He's at that stage where he wakes a lot in the night because he wants to work on walking. He's still crawling more than walking, but he does use walking to get himself to some places.
DH and I recently had a big emotional realization about our relationship, and decided that things were not good. So in order to give ourselves the space to work on it, we feel we have to move out of the shared housing situation that we're in. But there isn't any other place in the Ecovillage to move into, so we may have to move out of it. Which just breaks my heart. We just don't know what to do, and I'm feeling really down right now. DH also quit his job because he was miserable there, and other job prospects anywhere near the Ecovillage are slim. I've also been having difficulty with my back, and we have no money for chiropractic or massage or physio. So I'm just needing to take it easy, and not lift my children, or change diapers or push strollers, and when/if it finally heals strengthen my core, I guess. I've been in a dark place for the last 3 weeks.post #118 of 3252/12/13 at 9:57amThread Starter
Oh, Kirsten, I'm so sorry to hear what you've been going through! Does the health care system cover PT services? I would think ultimately PT would be your best bet for recovery. And could just your dh move somewhere closer to work options for a bit and let you stay in the ecovillage so you have support with the kids? Maybe a friend or family member he could stay with for a while? We did that for my SIL this time last year. She stayed with us for a little over 2 weeks and by the time she went home, she felt ready to work on things with her dh. All of this sound really hard to deal with and I'm sure the weather isn't helping. I really hope that spring brings positive things! ((HUGS))post #119 of 3252/12/13 at 10:21ampost #120 of 3252/12/13 at 1:51pm
Kirsten- I am so sorry things are tough for you right now. Only you know what is best for you and your family, even if sometimes its hard to make those decisions. Living in a shared situation would be tough just in general, but I imagine its extra stressful when you are having your own family issues.
Nicole- that is fantastic!! Go Conner!
