June 2006 Mamas - Chatting Away in February! - Page 4

post #61 of 608
Quick reply:
Heidi, I am sorry to hear about what you're going through. Feel free to talk about it or PM if you'd like, ok?

Babies and teeth--Philip's top teeth are coming in too. He'll wake up at random times during the night either whining with his eyes closed, or he'll wake up fully and smile and want to play. I am so tired this morning!

We're having diaper issues. They leak! All over the bed! lots of baby pee! (I don't CD).

Babyproofing is necessary now. I have to do a good job or DH will go buy a playpen, which I don't want and don't have room for.

Ashley, it's good to see you. I too like the getting ready for a walk picture. Is that a wrap or a mei tai?

Baby carrier envy over here...

Ange, I owe you a PM
Lindsey, I think I'll be able to ship on Monday, just have to figure out where to get dry ice.

have a good day!

We had the same problem, what brand do you use? I went up to a size 4 Pampers Babydry (with the real strechy tabs now) for nighttime and close the tabs tight. PLenty of room at the top, but gives him more peeing room too.

at night we are because she isn't moving around enough to get them out on her own.

You are too sweet! I told Lee about you donating milk to us and he is thrilled. Thank you so much for such a wonderful gift!

let's see what i can remember...too lazy to click the multi-quote button:

i'm very very grateful to have a full term baby, but my body is ridiculously worn out. physically i can't handle much more of this. my torso is so short that everytime i have a contraction my uterus mashes down on my ribs, and after each contraction, jackson kicks and punches as hard as he can, thus causing more pain. i swear i'm internally bruised. my back is handling it better than i had anticipated, thank goodness (my neck is broken and i suffer from chronic back spasms) so i'm still able to move, but my pubic bones and hip joints aren't handling the strain real well. alright, enough griping. i just hope he's ready soon. 5 days of contractions is starting to hurt, a lot.

um, burping...we don't burp her anymore. she belches like a frat boy all on her own. seriously, it's amazing how big a noise can come out of such a small baby.

i need to go clean out my blazer, 'cause i'm going to meet brad at a car dealership over lunch. he found a minivan we might be able to get. it's a 99 plymouth voyager. we're going to try and do an even trade betweeen the van and the blazer, since we definitely can't fit out whole family in the blazer. sam's new carseat should also be arriving today so we'll have the baby bucket for jackson when he decides to arrive.

Are you super potty trainer now? Man, potty training is the pits.. If Jackson potty trains in one day, break it to me gently, kay?

What's up with babes getting all tired, about to fall asleep, and then just wake up with full energy?? : Elijah has been doing this for a couple of nights now. I don't get it. I think it's that top tooth trying to make its way through. Man it sucks. But it could be worse. At least he's happy tonight.
If its teeth please please let them break through soon cause I AM TIRED.

If I do that before I nurse her down, then she'll sleep 4 hour stretches. The one night I forgot and went to boil the water after she was in bed, she was awake again before the water got remotely hot.
I vaguely remembering hearing something on the radio yesterday about lavendar and boys... I think it was bad.... Must research cause I do have a lavendar lotion though we don't use it often...

Just imagine if you were 10 years older and doing this... Good thing you started young. Hang in there Sarah. I was exhausted after one pregnancy, can't imagine back to back. Double

We need to get a new car seat. J is hanging over the sides. What were the recommendations for that anyway? Back to the research drawing board...

Burping... We don't actually have to burp J, just keep him up right for a few minutes and he will do it all on his own...

We had to move up a size when we got to excessive leaking. We are in size 4 huggies (costco...) Um, yes, C was wearing size 4 at the beginning of last year :

And looking forward to your thoughts... :

Hmmm... I thought there was more... Better go back and look....

I guess I see her as a person with equal rights and equal responsibilities. I'm not her maid and I'm not her boss. I enjoy her as a person, and I value her thoughts and ideas and contributions to our house. I've lived longer though, so I know more about some things, and my job is to be her guide.
I like this... Are you joining our GD group cause I need all the info I can get....? :

....

Well, considering my others weren't potty trained until like 4 or so...

Actually, I don't really "train", I just let them go when they want. My other kids never really wanted to, but Jackson has gone pee on the potty for the last two days fairly consistently. He asked to go, I took him, he went. I deserve an easy potty-er!!!

post #73 of 608
Caroline -- Nope, Thor's not even close to potty trained. I think it's gonna be a while!!

Oh, and Jessica, I would second moving up a size in diapers. Anna's in a size 4 and since we moved up I haven't had one blowout or leak! She's a chunky sweet thing though!

Thanks for all the nice comments about my pics...

Sarah -- you're so close!!!

OK I've gotta go bathe the babes...

Okay, that makes me feel better as I don't think C is going to "get" it until he is 4.....

Not at all. Now seriously, if we only were able to talk about boys, some mamas would definitely be missing out on the conversation I just noticed no one had posted for like an hour and didn't want you to think you were a thread killer I could use some decluttering though....

Um, didn't lavender cause breasts in boy? or something equally crazy?

At least 10 years from now I would have been in shape before getting pregnant the FIRST time. You know the whole get-married-and-gain-weight thing? Yeah, not conducive to pregnancy.

We just got Sam's new carseat today. I wonder how she's gonna like sitting up as opposed to being reclined in the bucket?

If she's anything like Marlow (which she is) she will LOVE it. And she can grab the window screen and thrash that around too....it must be fun.
