Welcome, Alia, and did I say welcome to bunsmom? I think I did, but if not, welcome, otherwise, welcome again!
So sorry to hear about all the sick babies and parents! We're not sick here, but I'm quite sure Bhavani is getting her upper teeth now. I could barely put her down yesterday, and she just wouldn't settle for a nap, but slept well last night.
Anna, that just plain old sucks! Have you heard from your sister yet? Are your dh and Mielle feeling any better? Sending situation-improvement-vibes!
Mandy--Bhavani has recently worn herself out from floor time in the evening. She's not a fan of tummy time, but a few times recently she's been playing and kicking on her back, and she just falls asleep. It's so sweet! I don't remember the other two ever doing that. She just gets plum-tuckered and crashes on the blanket.
bendmom--have you washed the fleece liners at least a couple of times? I found that with the microfleece from Joanne's, I had to wash it on hot with a glug of vinegar 2 or 3 times before they stopped wicking pee and started allowing it to pass through to the diaper. They work as well as the MM now. Otherwise, you could order some Malden Mills fleece online (not sure of a site, but do a google search), and cut your own liners--still cheaper than buying precut ones.
We're vehicle hunting and now we're going for a 4wd suv instead of a minivan. We like the Nissan Xterra, and the 2000 and 01's are pretty reasonable. It's just a question of whether they'll fit 3 carseats. We had 3 seats in a Corolla, so you'd think they'd fit, but we'll have to actually try them out. Ted (dh) has a friend who used to be a car salesman, who's going to find out what dealers pay for used xterras so he can tell us what to offer and how much is too much to pay.
I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of my lot of medium diapers. I got a Roly Poly Rumpster that I bought individually on the TP in the mail yesterday, and I really like it! Kinda bulky, as B is still on the low end of its weight range, but very cute and absorbent.
Kids need me. Wow, this thread is chugging right along. Happy Friday!
