nak... happy belated b-day max... fellow late july b-day mama (mine is the 27th). i'm soooooo glad that we all popped in april/may/june, b/c can you imagine being SUUUUUUPER pregnant in this heat like our mothers were???? arrgghhh.. i can barely tolerate it carrying a baby around, and i'm in Wisconsin (although it's like 90 every day with like 80% humidity). i moved away from Cincinnati b/c i hated hot humid weather, and what did i get??? now i'm just surrounded by cheese-heads in hot, humid weather.
anyway, glad to hear everyone sounding happy though! i've got mixed feelings on the AF issue. I have zero sex drive as well, but i don't want to fool myself into thinking it'll come back in case it doesn't. i had some trouble with that before we got preggo and i always thought it was from the pill, but i'm not on it now, so if it doesn't come back, then it's just me and not the pill.
as for hair, i just got mine cut really short b/c i was tired of making such a mess shedding so much. me, my yellow lab, and my yellow tabby cat are all doing some SERIOUS damage on our house. it's nasty. i felt bad once when i pulled one of my hairs out of Adia's neck fold.
we didn't even do the cake thing, so no anniversary stuff for us (we both forgot our anniversary this year
). we had a somewhat of a non-traditional wedding anyway, so we weren't heavy on the traditional stuff, although i sorta-kinda regret that. at least i was wearing an actual wedding dress!!! i'm not sure i'd be up for actually EATING the year old cake. perhaps just sit it on the kitchen table and let it defrost while you look at wedding pics, or something that reminds you of the day... then look at your munchkin, and i think you'll feel really happy.
and, hey for all that were talking about Moby wraps, THANK YOU!!!!! everyone was talking about them and Adia has been wanting to nap on us, so we finally bought one from another mama. it has REVOLUTIONIZED my life. lol. i'm serious, i get sooooo much more done now b/c she'll sleep on me while i do all the housework, and i don't worry about whether she's ok or whether she's going to wake up any second. it's AWESOME!!!
oh, and our EC'ing is going really well. last night she peed a tiny bit in her super nighttime dipe that i put on her, but when she woke up today, i took her to the potty, she peed enough for an adult (seriously, WOW!!!!), took a little poo, then we went back to bed with no dipe and nursed!!! i felt silly putting her in that super dipe when she didn't need it. i love the nakey bum!!! baby butts are so cute, it's a shame we always cover them up so much!! let 'em hang free ladies!!!
wow, that was a long post. sorry all! everyone be careful with all the heat. ciao!
