He'll beg anything off anyone, and even though he regularly gags and chokes on things like crackers, that doesn't seem to deter him from eating them. I warmed up the carrots tonight and he ate half a jar! What a pig! He has never been that much of a nurser. Tain was a champion nurser. I feel like having such opposite children helps me see that I didn't do anything wrong with Tain, he really wasn't interested and that I am not doing anything wrong with Ro now b/c he is.
The last movie I saw was "Team America: World Police." Mike gave me $20 to get out of the house, and he stayed with BeanBean. I wore BooBah in the sling. She nursed twice and slept the rest of the time. It was cute, but it was kind of like a two hour long episode of South Park (big surprise, huh?). I could tell that it wouldn't be in theaters much longer, and lo and behold it was gone the following week. :LOL I liked, it, though; but I am irreverant and strange like that. :LOL
I don't feel pregnant today, but I still don't have my period... I got a BFN at 10dpo with BooBah, so today would be the absolute earliest I could test. I think I'll give it another week, though, because like I said I don't feel pregnant right now.. just slightly concerned. I wish I knew for sure, though. My discharge is ambiguous, to say the least.
Babyproofing-- we keep cleaners and stuff above the kitchen sink, and we keep our (three) glass cooking items in the higher kitchen cabinets, so BeanBean can climb in and out of the lower cabinets and play with anything he finds in there. That's pretty much it for us. We don't really have much that's dangerous or breakable, so we just ask him to avoid those things. For the most part, he does. Oh, we do have outlet covers and a fridge lock, too.
If I could do it (if I didn't live in an apartment) I'd drill another hole in the front door and put a deadbolt up high where BeanBean can't reach it. I hate the fact that he can open the front door with no effort at all! A doorknob cover won't work because the doorknob is old-fashioned and so big that the cover just makes it easier to open.
