Hi, mamas! I can't wait to hear how you're doing. I should leave more of these typos in since I'm typing one-handed ;)
I learned an important lesson from my baby. After I was in labor, my midwives said I was tough from my labor, but I didn't believe them them because I ended up crying. Well, TR had to get some blood drawn from his arm, (just routine, turned out fine) and he cried quite a bit and took three phlebotomists (the one that used to work in the NICU got the good sample). I sang to him and told him he earned his badge of manly toughness.
He taught me that you can be tough even if you cry.
Another funny bit: DH had a beard, and TR would apparently cry quite a bit when I would leave him to go to work. He decided on his own to cut his beard since it was spring. I mentioned I thought it was a good idea since TR could see his facial expressions better. He cut his beard, and I will remember for the rest of my life the look on TR's face when he looked at DH. It was studying tinged with happiness.
chica, I admit I'm jealous of how much adventure you're having, although I'm sure adventure can equal stress :) I've given him some ise cubes to gnaw on for the teething.
jakesmama, I hope you guys were able to regain your health without too many medications.
kel, your pictures are amazing, and Pepper is still my favorite name. Have you made those strolls yet? I've been looking at used strollers.
esp, baking? I considered it today and ended up just buying cookies.
purposeful, as a knitter I LOVE that sweater! TR grew out of the suit I made after about a month. I still haven't tried on the romper...
violet_lotus, yikes with the hospital. I'm in the same boat with going to work early.
Funny story: I was on the phone with a woman and I said, "I leave the baby at home... with my husband." She said, "Oh, I was about to report you to CPS." I know you've never met me in person, but really?
