Hi Mar!! It's great to hear from you again!! I was scrolling through your blog, and saw a picture of the "non lump" What a cutie!!
I don't think I'm the youngest. I'm pretty sure Pam and Sheri are the same age as me.
Pam, sometimes Mak's nursing really bugs me too. I've tried to set a limit of time that he can do it, and he just freaks out and latches harder. So, what we're trying now - via recommendation from LLL is to give him a warning that time will be up, and then sing the ABC's. Its really important to be consistent with it, or else it won't work. But now, when I do that, I'll get to like C or D, and he'll unlatch and start singing too!
Its not foolproof though. Like, if he's exhausted or something, no way. I dunno. Sometimes I feel like he nurses more than the baby. I guess he just needs the reassurance, or something. It will end. After they turn three, their nursing habits go waaaaay down, almost non existent actually. Two year olds just nurse alot.
Sheri....come to Hawaii....come to HAwaii....
Mary, I got pregnant when Mak was like, 13 months. In some ways, its nice having him and Violet so close in age, in some ways its harder. I think it was an easier transition for him, than it was for Kobe, who was three when I had Makai.
Karen, I know you don't like doing this, but if you just stick a thermometer in Luka's butt, he'll porbably poop
Violet had a papaya yesterday. Boy did she like it! She had it all over her face, and her shirt and hands and even in her neck rolls!
Oops!!! WE completely forgot to take Makai to his gymnastics class today!! Bad parents. Its just staritng right now! Aaaaaahhhh!!
Oh, we had Kobe's skin testing yesterday - he's allergic to wheat, corn, rice, potato, buckwheat and shellfish, but he can have peanuts and eggs now. Weird how the allergies can change like that. I'm soooo glad we have that cookbook, Andy. What the hell am I going to feed him???
