: howdee doodee mamas! I'm in this super goofy mood - went to a fair all afternoon and my kids were so great, and we made a zillion crafts and bounced in the jumpers and really had a great time. Ran into my crunchy mama 'friend' who doesn't answer the phone or door, and she had the baby all tucked into the bjorn under her coat, so no peeps at the baby for anyone (she's about a month old now). They sure are funky weird people, which would be fine except they are just so... distant? Well, anyway, it was nice to see them and not have to have any expectations, just hang a bit. Also saw a bunch of other folks, who were all super fun
all afternoon, and even a touch of drizzles, but the sun was still shining and we got rainbows here, too!
Karen - way cool about Luka and the prisms. I remember Beca used to get totally sucked into the prism rainbows in her room in Vancouver. Don't know what happened to the prisms we had... lost in the move, I guess. Better than a mobile anyday, huh!
Annie - I'm so sorry for Makai - does sleeping w/his grandma mean you actually get to sleep? What is the point of having a baby that sleeps through the night if YOU don't sleep through the night, I'd like to know (in which case, you wanna swap kids for a few weeks!? I'd just LOOOOVE some sleep!)
Az - how awful for everyone at your house that Miss E. is so sad. There must be something going on...you are doing such a great job offering what comfort another person can possibly offer (boob, love, touch) - she'll just have to work through whatever it is. Her poops are ok? And she's sleeping ok when she's sleeping? Poor thing... Hugs to you mama!!!
How's the new moniter working? You inspired me to get batteries and get ours up and running too. Works GREAT! I can go all the way outside and it's perfectly clear. LOOOOOOVE it!
Kathy - I have an extra (EXTRA?! Well, not yet used) tube I will send you on monday. I'm sorry we didn't get to it today, but everytime I had a chance to go, dh was out w/the car. The
of one car families who aren't organized
. I have another package that didn't get sent either. I'll let you know what it cost to send - it can't be too much! Pretty weeny tube, for $6 (as dh would say it's a mini-rip off! I do love love love this stuff, tho.) I still have your address! What is the origin of your last name? We had wonderful neighbors who were Demsky's ...maybe from the same root?
Hi Lisa!!! That's so nice of you - I appreciate it. I'd really dig having a good carrier that works for us. The sling is great but diversity is better! What a relief it'll be to get him into a back carry that I can trust. Even the mamatoto torso carry just doesn't work for long enough for me. I keep having to readjust it and then he slips down... this will be SOOOO much better (I hope!). I actually shivered (in a good way) when you mentioned how many new food groups you dove into today - having to lose them all would be so sad... let's hope she doesn't have any new symptons. Oh, and I totally agree about the wheat and delayed reactions. That's very typical for wheat. It's more of a sensitivity (which I think about 20-30% of people in the US are sensitive to), but most people ignore it and rub on more cream.
So there were about 5 people babywearing at the fair today. One Dad w/a sling (this was heresay, I didn't actually see him), and several moms w/bjorns (exclusively). I saw one woman in the mall here once wearing that side carrier thing, what's it called...sutemi? Anyway, it was stroller city there. I kept getting my heels clipped (oh! Sorry! yeah, right, whatever) and to be honest, it was kinda
- they ignored their kids for the most part (even forgetting about the stroller in dealing with older babes and walking away entirely, then rushing back to get the stroller/baby - saw that THREE times myself!), they bumped into everything and everyone, took up a ton of space, BUT I gotta say, they did have a place to store all the crafty stuff the kids pasted together. Mine is now all stuck to the wet diape bag in the diaperpack
. I'm glad I wore him 'cause he nursed for 1/2 the time we were there, and noone even knew it, but it wasn't easier overall.
Ok, I'm going to go catch the end of The Wiz - we swapped friday night movie for tonight because of the brownie thing. But I hadn't checked in all day and wanted to read up and say hi!
Oh, Lisa - I've heard that blackout curtains work really well and am seriously thinking about some for ds's room 'cause the blinds we got are on the outside of the window frame, so sunlight streams in from both windows behind the blinds...fairly blinding
: And yea!!! that she's sleeping so well!
Did you get her pepcid script corrected??? could that be part of it?
Lots of hugs mama! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!! Andy.
