Chilly Weather for June 05 Babies!! - Page 4

post #61 of 244
bama: yea for just throwing up because he does!? Glad he's able to drink the stuff. Maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I can't believe the neighbor who kept your mail for a month? I feel guilty when i get the neighbor's sports magazine. One time I got another neighbor's Civil War magazine and I read it before taking it over there that day. I would never keep someone's bills. That's evil.:

Mamita: wow! Peru! Just as a visitor this time! Hope the interview process goes well so he can come up here and spend more time with the two of you.

To those mama's in school: Where is the smiley where he takes his hat off because I certainly tip my hat off to you! I had Maddie right at the end of grad school and there is no way I could have done all of the studying that I needed to do if I had little ones around. I need to be able to sit and focus and that just doesn't happen anymore. If I need to read something for work I try to do it over my noon hour so I can close the door. Good luck with things!

Mcs: glad the anniversary was a good time for you! That dose sound like fun to have that time with your spouse.

What have your toddlers discovered lately? Claire still loves splashing toilet water and digging in the garbage. The other 2 didn't do this constantly. Is it because she is her own individual or because I feel pukey and am on the couch and therefore less supervised?

Bama -- hooray for Schuy! I can't believe your neighbors. The PO kept our mail for about three weeks once and I was both PISSED and totally inconvenienced. Geez!

Mamita, great to hear from you. Miles and I were looking at pictures on the computer last night and saw you and he said, "When is she coming over again? Can you call her?" Good luck with that trip, phew.

Mcs, what a lovely anniversary. I'm jealous! Ours is next month -- seven blissful years

We had our WBV today and Danny is 24.5 pounds (50%) and 32" long -- still on the tall side. And so darn cranky! He hits and bites and throws things when he doesn't get his way. He's just been in a snit lately, but at least he is sleeping well again. Oh, and I think he had food poisoning the other day because he threw up SIX TIMES IN A ROW. And each time we had time to change out of our (and his) vomity clothes -- there was a LOT of laundry the next day.

I am trying to spend less time on the computer. Wish me luck!

Cully throws stuff when he doesn't get his way too, Melissa! He is also into EVERYTHING. I keep the bathroom door shut because I don't want him playing in the toilet, and the contents of the pantry can be found all over the floor at any time of the day. We had a great day at the children's museum, cully loves the water part of the place so much, we spent most of the time there. It was EMPTY - which is such a change from the wall to wall chaos I have come to expect from the children's museum, because we always seem to go on the weekends. Now that Cully can really enjoy most of it, I'm going to take him at least once, if not twice a week. Plus I take the bus & subway to get there (parking downtown is $$$$$$) and the subway is a surefire bet to put his butt to sleep when he's in the sling.

Oh, and remember when I whacked my head off the freezer that time? I whacked it off a doorway in the museum today. Not as bad as the freezer incident, but enough to make me loopy for a minute. Seriously, I need to stop leading with my head.

I'm around too - it's been pretty busy here.

MCS your anniversary sounds like it was lovely!

Our 2nd anniversary is next week and we're going on a 'microvacation' - spending a night in a fancypants cabin at a new state park a few hours a way. Going to do some hiking and picnicking and eat at the lodge's nice restaurant, and the cabin has a hot tub on its deck so we'll be doing that too. : This will be the first vacation of any sort we've been on since we went to Cozumel, when I was pregnant!! Here's hoping Elaina tolerates the car ride and the night away from home well.

Emmy, glad you had a good day at the museum - sounds fun.

Bama, I'm so glad S is taking to the foodstuff well.

The student mamas have my admiration as well!! Good luck with your Peru trip, Michelle-soon-to-be-in-Peru-again

What is Elaina up to.... currently whacking me with a book. Guess I gotta run

My BIL and SIL brought their sick, snotty, hacking toddler over this weekend so now I have 3 kids with colds... not terrible, but sleep isn't the best. And last night was just the first night. Sometimes I sure wish dh were home at night.

good luck fey! sounds fun
we seem to have a lot of fall anniversaries here.

mamita-have a safe trip. that's so exciting that you get to go back.

emmy-cully sounds just like spuddy. he throws *everything* which is why lots of his toys "go to time out". like his school bus that he whacked me with today:

bama-hurray for schuy! i hope you can keep getting the stuff down him

meli-good to hear i'm not the only one with a bean pole babe

.....my financial aid won't be in until the middle of october/eraly november. so, starting next week i'm a SAHM again going to school via email. this is going to be really interesting. i have no idea how i'm going to handle ds and get all my school work done. i'll still get to go to my night class though. i also forgot to add, we saw the mw yesterday but LimaBean would not cooperate for the u/s so we are still unsure of our litle one's gender. alrighty, time to study for stats.

geez, anne...is it that time already?? are you THAT far along?? wow..

And you guys...you wont believe...

I have a sweet mama friend...she is totally dairy free..100% vegan....and she offered to pump her milk for ds....so we can give him some live antibodies!

How incrediblysweet is that?? I laughed and cried all at once...

And after I finish detoxing, i am going to *gulp* try to relactate...to see if I can give him some of my milk.

and ....

i have an appt to get a mirena in 3 weeks. We made the hard decision to not have any more kiddos for a couple years..to see if we can get Ds better. I cant imagine shuffling a newborn(or a sick pregnant stomach: ) to all these myriad Dr visits!

Are you a giant?



bama: hugs out to you about putting off the next kid for a bit.

I'm just glad to know that Claire isn't the only one splashing in toilet water and raiding the garbage can.

btw, I feel like a new woman today. Both Claire and Ellysia slept through the night! And I was able to ignore my bladder until 6am! I got so much sleep!!! I felt so good I even woke up DH to ahem, celebrate.

bama that is so great about your friend pumping milk for schuy... i can't remember if this was ever confirmed but are you sure that shuy's issue is just dairy? if so then that's great for you... detox won't bee *Too* hard.... relactating... wow. I'm in awe. Do you think schuy will take to nursing again?

Well I was going to write a bunch more but Istra just pooped on the floor. Sigh. How is everyone else doing with potty issues? Istra doesn't reallty like it at all!!

he is allergic to every thing BUT : his special formula, organic baby oatmeal, baby food bananas, squash corn chicken baby food..and cheerios and raisins.

I'm not detoxing just because i'm trying to relactate..in fact, relactating didnt even cross my mind until last week when we got the diagnosis of IGg and IGa deficient. At which point I realized that it didnt matter what i did...he was still going to throw up...so it wasnt my milk after all..there was an underlying reason for the lack of growth, etc , and it WASNT my milk!! WOOHOO!!

So I dont know that he'll ever actually nurse again...he might...but for now, my friend is going to pump for me , and then after I am through detoxing, I will make a concerted effort to relactate. I will go on the herbs, etc, and start pumping.
