Lonely/no friend mamas - Page 83

post #1641 of 1821
So, MK, how'd the night go?

Thyra, a thought about summer carriers... Last summer I used a sling made of solarveil. Although it's designed for the beach or the pool it was my main carrier. It's light, airy and you have the added bonus of UV protection.

I figured out how to do the hip-hold in the hotsling!! Lincoln isn't quite big enough for it, but in a few weeks he'll probably be able to do it for longer periods!

Also, just b/c he's the prettiest baby I know I HAD to share a super cute picture of him!

MittensKittens - how was your DD last night? Did she go to sleep on her own again?
post #1643 of 1821
I am so sorry that I cant access that picture because I am not on facebook, Thyra! Any other method of sharing it? Also, if anyone wants to become my friend on Flickr, that would be fun! These are my babies.

I second BaBaBa on the solarveil, although one has to get it on ebay or make it themselves since solarveil is no longer made. I have also found the MT to be fine - it's been REALLY hot over here and as long as I don't put anything on baby except for a dipe and a hat, we're just fine. I have never liked slings much.

DD slept in the small bed all night. She woke up once, and I woke up because she was talking to me... ....asking for her BEAR! This morning she woke up, smiled and said "I slept great, you mommy?"

Thyra, I had a hotsling (one of my many carriers ) It was great. Side carry will free you up considerably.

I'm not on facebook either although now I'm tempted to reactivate my account...

MK, do you know why they don't make solarveil anymore? Seems like a great innovation in fabric.

Your children are stunning!

That's great about DD. I know you're sad about it right now but think of the confident, self assured, independent little girl you've raised. And a big wet raspberry to all the co sleeping critics who says it spoils the child and they'll never sleep on their own.:nana:

She slept by herself again? I'm not ready for Lincoln to sleep by himself yet. I like him being in bed with me even though he snuggles with BF all night long.

We'll definitely try the MT soon, today its just dumping rain. Ugh.

I'll try to post the picture again later today, I'll have to load it onto another website since i'm not sure how to post them here any other way.

These were taken recently, and I love them!

BaBaBa and MK your kiddo's are so cute!

Lincoln is great, he's got such a stunning smile! And you and DD are absolutely gorgeous, BBB (assuming that's your pic of course!).

DK about the solarveil, there is a place on hyena cart where it is still available by the yard, if you want to, I'll PM you the link. Which is your fave carrier, BBB?
post #1648 of 1821
I'll see if DD wants to sleep alone again. Probably not though, it's thunder and lightening again here, which usually means a power cut too. And Thyra, Lincoln is about the same age as my DS, right? If he wanted to sleep by himself too I'd just have to... ...ehm... ...find a man!? (no, not really!)

Where are you all? I've been without internet for a couple days and I figured there was a lot to catch up on... not so! What have you been up to for the weekend? It has been lovely weather here and we've been enjoying ourselves. And today my ^&$@@£* lawyer apparently finally took some action and I am hoping my son will have a BC soon. My aunt is coming to visit in two weeks! I am really looking forward to it.

Hey mama!! Here I am!! Grandparents are here from NJ to visit before we leave to AZ so that's what's going on here. How's DD been doing with the lone sleeping trial?? Great news on the BC for DS, congrats!!

I'm having a bad day. BF and I fought last night when Lincoln wouldn't go back to sleep at 3am. I was up until 5:30 with him - I think he had a tummy ache.

Then this morning I found out that there is a penalty for withdrawing from classes the first week and its half the bill - $1800!! I don't have the money, so I don't know what to do. The thing thats frustrating is that I TRIED to drop the classes before that, but the stupid internet sign up thingy wouldn't let me. So now I'm in big trouble b/c the money is due next monday and I just don't know what to do.

It just feels like its one thing after another right now. :

OMG - Lincoln fell off the bed! He was napping in our bed, and we always put pillows on either side of him so that he won't roll over, well, he pushed the pillow off the bed (I can't believe he's that strong! They are memory foam, so not exactly light weight!) and rolled off the bed, onto the pillow! Scared the life out of me, but he's acting like his usual happy self, so I think he's ok.

Could my day get any worse?

That's horrible but thankfully he fell on a pillow and he's ok.

Are those your parents or your ILs? How are you enjoying the visit?

DD is back to sleeping with me and DS :. We're supposed to go to the embassy today and frankly I am freaking out over it. I am contemplating just sending my lawyer there rather than coming as well, but I think that they might not like that, plus I actually know the law better. We'll see what happens...

Thyra, I am so sorry! DD fell off the bed once as well, and she is just fine. I am sure it happened to a lot of our kids at some stage.
post #1655 of 1821
MK - good luck at the embassy! I hope it all goes well!

Lincoln seems to doing fine since his little incident. He's also trying really hard to army crawl, but he can't actually go anywhere yet. I feel like I have limited time with a baby who can't go anywhere. I should really start baby-proofing hard core.

I'm back!
We went to the inlaws on the weekend and went to see Cyrano de Bergerac::: It's been so long since I've seen a play. It was so romantic but it left me a little melancholic.

Now, I'm just crabby and in a funk . Maybe it's the lousy cold, wet weather we keep having. DH is probably glad to have left me. I'm actually glad to get some alone time. I need it!
post #1657 of 1821
hey mamas, just checking in. we're getting pre-approved for a house right now and we're still looking for a house, i'm still looking for a job, and DD just had her 3rd tooth pop up! dd also had an allergic reaction to apricots of all things! we've been busy here. i'm taking her to the toy store for "farm day" i think they're going to have a baby pig and calf, she's going to love it! i lost my camera, so i'm sad, hopefully i'll find it before we leave this afternoon.

'Farm day' at the toy store sounds like a lot of fun!

(I think I enjoy toy shopping more than DD does)

DD had fun... she liked most of the animals until she got licked by a calf, and she got scared! the cow liked her a lot!
post #1660 of 1821
hey mamas

Just checking in to say good morning (well, morning here!). Great you had such a nice time, BaBaBa.

Farm day sounds like fun! I wish we had things like that here. I'm supposed to go to the embassy today with a witness. I was in there for over an hour yesterday just trying to make the appointment to get the witness statement taken. The witness has to confirm he knows my address and that I was pregnant, despite I already have the dna test results. I hope we will be out of there in no time but I have a feeling we will be there all day. Please send the bureaucrats some feel good and work fast vibes for me .

What is the weather like in all of your towns and cities? It is burning hot here and about to get worse.

Oh, anyone participating in that "scavenger hunt" MDC has?
