Well, I had my first MMF dream. I dreamed that Alison was having her baby. And KKmama insisted that everyone buy a bottle of wine so we could all relax. (which is funny, because I think I remember KK doesn't drink?)

So there you have it. You're invading my dreams!

Lisa, how is Alison? And you?

I drink very, very, very little. (Probably the most I've had at one time in the last 10 yrs was when I had 2 glasses of wine in a hottub when I didn't yet know I was pg with L :.) I would insist that we buy Guinness, because hops promote lactation.

TC- I'm so glad you got the box. I was starting to worry that my box was so bad you didn't know what to write. (eep!)

What about teatree oil or another essential oil for the flakeyness? Check this abstract. And KellyMom says that you shouldn't put teatree oil on your nipples, but it should be fine for topical use on your body. "no pediatric concerns have been noted via milk."

Ha! Science that!

Lisa, we're thinking of you and Allison and Elinor. This time will pass, and no matter what, you'll have a delicious baby to eat. These are from the lentil: : :

time to help get dressed.

the lentil wanted more so he could make a parade.

"Hey! this is the long leg page!


Okay, we'll stop.

All is well here. I have a moxa stick burning as I type just waiting for Alison to bring her toes in here. Obviously, no baby and no turning yet.

I forgot to post about my may mama gift from Miss Renae - a very pretty bracelet and a feather on a string of beads that are too cool. It was one of the first things I hung up in our house. Also, there is a mixed cd, and I say this with the greatest love, Renae's taste in music is a LOT younger than mine. I feel old but unable to not dance when listening to it.

more later, must moxa and give baby a stern talking to.

btw, Alison drinks even less often than KK - i.e. never. Fortunately for me, she doesn't mind when others drink on her behalf.

Will answer the baby name Q on YG (but if you want a hint, look at the first word of this sentence).

Turn, babe in Allison's tummy, turn! (unless you already have, in which case please disregaurd, little baby!) What I mean is, get head down and stay there! I am frequently giving my babe a stern talking to about staying head down.

Wow. I know this is terrible, but I'm glad I'm not the only super late SS gift giver.

And Heather, IS the hat from you? It just seems so Heather-y. Reminds me of the wonderful wool knit ball we got from you for the 1st B-day exchange. (Which I LOVE and have stollen from L's things to give to W).

gyn- I'm not shy, I don't really care. Though apologies when it hurts are nice.

EL- lovin the lentil's smilies.

My update: I had convinced myself that I was going to go into labor this afternoon at work. : It did not happen. Sigh. Baby has dropped though I think (judging from the fact that all of a sudden my walk is a painful waddle, and my groin area is SOOOOOOOOOOORE.) I've had a few random quick crampy-type contrax, but nothing I'd really even call a Braxton Hicks today. I looked on the calendar to see when the full moon is, and it happens to fall on W's EDD (Feb 2nd), so now I'm hopin that will be the big day. Well, actually, I'd be happy if W came RIGHT THIS MINUTE. I'm feeling ready. I want to meet him. And I just don't feel like going about my normal life any more. C'mon baby- come out and meet us! We're not that bad- really, we're pretty nice.


I'm just not feeling like stickin to green these days. I'm in a multicolored mood.

I've got my Fiddlefern labor candle READY to light whenever and wherever you might go into labor. Thinking of you, dear Fiddle! And I MUST post some pics of your blessing on the YG - do you mind?

Oh, and Lisa, I lit a candle this evening in honor of head-down A&L+2. Hope the moxi worked.

ps- yes, Sarah, I'd love it if you did- I didn't take any pics myself.

BirthyFern! I'm gettin' so excited! And yes the hat was from me! Got your surprise package yesterday! :

I love W's name and would want it for hypothetical as yet unconceived baby brother, but with our last name, some names just don't work!

You'd think I was the one gettin' ready to have a baby with all the cleaning/decluttering/rearranging/nesting type behavior going on here this weekend.

I have more reading to do but I just wanted to say howdy. : It's been a crazy week or so. Some good, some random, some bad (I went to therapy Wednesday! Woot. ) and well, yeah. Now it's Sunday already! :
Rowan has a cold. All day it was "I not feeling well, Mama" Poor sweetie. We watched the *original* Charlotte's Web this afternoon, and then read so many books my voice went hoarse by the end of it. DH went to a friend's surprise b-day party and though I was kind of sorry to miss it, I was also kinda glad I had a reason to stay in.

As for my music tastes! I know! : I listen to stuff 15-year-olds squeal over! But that CD represents just a *fraction* of what I listen to--it's what I'm listening to *right now*. Hee.
Glad you liked it (and the other things!) though!

Much to you all!

OH MY GOODNESS what a weekend. Lots of angst and little things coming up all at once. But can I just say thank goddess for Sunday evening cocktails and chocolate cake!

Lily is growing up before my eyes and tonight she seems more 5 than 2. This weekend has been this weird awakening that she's more a kid than a baby. We've been talking about weaning and getting her own room and yada yada and it's all just a lot to process. But good; it's all good.

DH leaves AGAIN Tuesday morning and I am in denial. So not ready for another week. Crap. But I will muddle through it, oh yes.

Thinkin' birthy thoughts for Fiddle and head-down thoughts for Allison...

S.

Hey y'all, I posted in the YG (because I was ranting )
And now I gotta get Rowan ready for our kitty-transporting and Trader Joe's adventure!

Thanks in advance for listening to my ranting. Heehee.

ETA: OMG! I'm The Morning Goddess! Yay!! to whoever tagged me!

Yay for chocolate cake! It was enjoyed here too, and a rare treat it was.

I either missed it or forgot - where does your DH go? And how often? I get : when DH stays late at work... I feel for those with traveling DH's. And those with DV's (viets of course).

Still thinking turny thoughts and ferny thoughts...

Juice, my DH is a web programmer and travels occasionally for client meetings in other cities and for conferences. He doesn't really travel all that much, but it so happened that he had both a new project kickoff and a conference within 2 weeks, so he went to Detroit last Sunday-Friday morning, here Friday-today, and leaves tomorrow morning for Maryland until Saturday morning. So he will have been gone 9 out of 13 days this fortnight. : And I am so not good at being a single parent, having school every day and home at 6 pm 2 days this week.

ANYWAY. Don't want to dwell on that anymore. Must go get my ducks in a row before clinical...quack quack

E is off the periactin and I'm finding out that it must make her drowsier than normal because she's back to her old "who needs a nap" self. : Though back to picking at food so hmmm.

I think C is coming down for a cold because she was ready for a nap not long after noon. Love her Saturday gym class, but not the booger encrusted kids she is in the class with. So goes the life of germaphobe mom...

Sarah---eeps! Sounds like it will be a loooong week but hopefully no mishaps along the way re: mounds of snow or nanny troubles.

Claudia---how are you and yours these days?
