Spughy and Fern, how lucky are you guys! What adorable pictures! What beautiful little girls. Ah, if only we could all meet up IRL. And spughy, how nice that you got that uninterrupted sleep!
Amy, so glad that the sleep thing is going better with Brynn in her own space. I'm impressed that you can get up like that to nurse her in the chair. And I'm sending good vibes your way as you await the news of where you'll all be moving!!! How exciting and mysterious. Do keep us posted.
Kavita, Love that conversation with you and DH!
I've definitely been experiencing that with my DH. It's so funny...and also, on a serious note, so great to have such supportive and enthusiastic partners in parenting.
Spiritmomma, sending peaceful vibes your way as you start this process of weaning. I think it is SO important for you to feel good in order to be a good mama, and if there's any resentment, then it's a sign that it's time for change...and how great that you are able to listen to that and know that and act on it. I hope it's a smooth happy journey; it sounds like it's already begun and already is so.
I'm definitely not there with the weaning thoughts, though like MelW, I have no plan. I have no timetable, nor am I committed to CLW (though it could happen). At the moment, Finley and I are both happy with our nursing relationship. And every day is pretty different. Sometimes, he wants it all the time (and I will sometimes distract him), and sometimes it's just a handful of times in the day and twice at night. (He is pretty consistently down to twice at night these days). I think the hardest thing for me is starting to face the looks, b/c most of the people that I see IRL often, are not AP . I see them because they're nice, and they're easy to see, and it's cold and hard to travel across this big city to meet with the AP moms. But sometimes I do manage to do so, and it is wonderful. A group of us have recently organized a weekly playgroup, and that is GREAT. To not feel so alone. As the weather warms up, I'll hopefully be able to manage getting out to see these cool AP moms out and about more often.
I have good news, which is that my hepatitis bloodwork came back, and I am Clear as can be, and it is dormant as ever! So yay for that!!!! I have also not been sick for two weeks. I am still going to find a way to balance my body though, and perhaps meet with someone in homeopathy or naturopathy.
