Aug '05 Mamas - Bring on the May Flowers! - Page 4

post #61 of 110
Chasmyn! where you go..haven't heard from ya in awhile..

I told DH to accept you on flicker...he's the one who uploads pictures on there..I prefer Webshots.com myself.=)

I have facebook too...from back in college...my email on there is ruonan1@umbc.edu if you want to add. =)

I agree with chasym, "this is one fantastically GOR group of kiddos"!:


Is it true, riverundine, you're pregnant?!? Or did I read that too fast..

congrats riverundine! hope you enjoy your time on the east coast! I'm in connecticut.

nonny- i think it was your question about toddler's eating habits changing...I have noticed this with both my boys (4 1/2 and 19 months) sometimes it seems as if they eat for days at a time without stopping - and then....nada. I find sleep patterns coincide with these eating spurts - and then boom in the next size of clothes.

And it really does smooth out with the two kiddo's, or it changes anyway. There are still times I feel ds1 is sitting by himself while I'm nursing or putting Jack down for a nap. The whole process has really made me assured of choosing AP practices because everyone seems to be surviving and thriving.

Funny (to me) side story - I'm really working on weaning Jack in a gentle way. I don't outright refuse but I am offering a million other choices and it is going so-so. I would really like to end it because I don't feel like I have much left. GOing on pregnant,nursing,m/c'ing,pregnant,nursing for over 5 years now and I'm ready for a break. It is funny - people either can't believe I'm still doing THAT or he's too young to wean. I just don't talk about it much and it will work out as everything does.

ANyway, I was telling Jack that the boobs were going away for the night and they would wake up with the sun. Harry (my oldest) said Mommy, maybe when he is two you can stop but he still needs it. I have no idea where he got the two age from as he is not around breastfeeding talk and we are not around other nursing toddlers.

Anyway, he has made the comment a number of times now and it really keeps me

So true. As dh was away for these last two weeks, I feel even more ap than normal. Naps and bedtime have both become all three of us snuggled into one bed (b/c I didn't have enough hands to do the traditional 'Adam goes into his bed' after we rock, etc.), and even last night and tonight I've done that - everyone is happier, and tonight I even picked Adam up after Sarah fell asleep nursing and tucked him into his bed with Pooh Bear. He snuggled right in and I haven't heard a peep from him. So we'll see how it goes, but it has been lovely snuggling with my kiddos so much. I had gotten away from it as much, what with separating the kids' routines. They're both napping and going to bed at the same times now, so that makes it really nice for all of us.

That's fantastic! I hope it stays that way when DH returns.

Congrats, Jeremy! Positive thoughts for a sticky baby!

I found out just this weekend that both my sister (37) and my niece (25) are pg with their first babies! Yeah and more yeah for lots of babies!
post #69 of 110
Congrats on your first birth, Doula Kerri! I remember when I did my first homebirth (in the tub with the five kiddles watching!) I was on cloud nine for weeks!! I think that's what prompted me to *forget* to tell DH I was in a fertile phase when we concieved this little bun in the oven! :

Speaking of DH, he gave me some fun Mother's day presents... we went to a Birth and Baby fair over the weekend and he bought me a Bella Band and an Ergo carrier!! Since I'm already showing so much, he put Jonathan in the Ergo, and they both really liked it!

Books: I'm an English major, so I have to do a lot of required reading (yuck) but my guilty pleasure find last week is "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife". Holy cow. Don't read it if you love the purity of Jane Austin, because I seriously doubt she would have approved, but if your fantasy life is in need of a boost... dig in!! I laughed and cried (Ok yeah, I'm pregnant...) and loved all the sex. One of my other favorite Mommy books is "Little Earthquakes" by Jennifer Weirner (sp?)... its a great story of four first time Moms.

OK, I said I'd get online and do school work, so I'll see y'all later!

Welcome indiemamma!

Chasmyn, I just did a search for you, and nothing too. PM me your real name and I'll do it that way (anyone else want some more FB friends?
post #72 of 110
Chasmyn and New Mama -- I gave up wheat, and do I feel marvelous! I have more energy and am not as tired. I feel stronger! Bliss. I've been eating lots of whole grains, veggies and no processed foods. My skin looks so much better, too!

Happy belated mother's day all! DH made me a big omelette. He had to work then, so O and I visited a friend's art studio. O colored with crayons while I looked at paintings. Then all 3 of us got a snack on the plaza where there was a drum circle (so we did some dancing, too!) and then we took a walk along peaceful and tree-filled woods. Ah....

Love to all!

We had a lovely Mother's Day here, too. Went with another family to a friend's place for a potluck brunch. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

About Facebook: I can't find you guys when I search by e-mail. My name is Skana Gee, and you should be able to find me by just searching for my name, then you can ask me to be your friend (if you so desire, of course!). Hope to hook up with some of you there.

Cheers for now.

Yay!! Jeremy! Congratulations!!! I hope this baby sticks for you and your DH! Your 2 will be about 2 + years apart then. That's a nice spacing IMO.

I've been away from the ocmputer for a few days...so trying to catch up on the reading.

I read that someone is gluten free - sorry I read fast and don't remember who.

Is there an edible brand of rice bread? I just bought a package and it bombed with ds. We are brand new to being gluten free - he's still eating spelt on Friday night and Sat. lunch.



I can relate to the long years of nursing. I've been pregnant and /or nursing non-stop since 1995.

I hope everyone had a good mother's day. On another note, I've reached 1/2 of 70 - and am not feeling my old age .

JJ said his first sentence today! "This is a rock."

You are the WOMAN, Rivka!

I am filled with awe and respect.

This reminds me of a Stephen Colbert moment: he is the youngest of either 10 or 12 children. One night, he mentioned this and then rattled off their names in one breath. The audience went crazy, clapping. He looked at them sternly and said "I hope you are applauding my mother's womb." At home on my couch, I certainly was.

I missed Jeremy's announcement. Congratulations!!!!!!!


Do any of you watch American Idol? I am embarrassed to say that I did. The performance of "I, I Who Have Nothing" made me love that song, so I looked it up and saw that Shirley Bassey sang it in the 70s. I showed the video to O and she was rapt.

In the car later, I sang her as much of the song as I could recall.

Today, weeks later, she said "I Nothing!" and she wanted me to sing the song! So we listened to the Shirley Bassey CD and all 3 of us overdramatized the song and made fools of ourselves and had a great time dancing around the kitchen.

Here is the video. Please watch it if you can. It's out of this world.

Nope, I'm a Survivor fan! That's the only TV show I watch regularly. :
