Happy Monday mommas! We had a pretty good weekend, we traveled 3 hours one way to my cousin's wedding. Alayna did pretty good, she was fussy the lasy 45 minutes or so, but not bad. The wedding was fine, it's just not that enjoyable when you have 3 kids with you, kwim??
We left around 10:00, and Alayna did great that night, she slept with me and got up twice to nurse. We went swimming for awhile Sunday morning, and then headed back. Of course she only slept *maybe* half an hour on the way home.
: The funny thing was that I had a nuk in the diaper bag from eons ago, and gave that to her, she was happy as a lark!
Today she's been a big ole fuss pot, and not napping well, we'll see how tonight goes. DH is gone until Wed. And my daycare baby cried most of the day.
Do you know how hard it is to NOT nurse that baby? It kills me. He was in the sling most of the day, but still cried. He's getting a cold, so I know that's the problem, but I'll have to tell the mom that I will call her to come and get him if he's like that tomorrow. It's not fair to the other kids, I didn't do much with them at all, and I hate that.
Today she came up to me and said, "momma up, momma up!" And then a couple minutes later she bumped her head, and said, "momma ouchie!" It was priceless!! She's also big into giving hugs, and pursing her lips and giving kisses.
Hevyne- I hope you get the food strike figured out, it must be frustrating.
Is your DH out of town this week too??
ecoteat- I love that statement, so true. And I agree with you, I end up feeling a bit freakish about how I parent, just because I have noone close to me that thinks like I do.
Hope your DH's back is doing better!
Max- Yikes! How scary, I hope he's feeling better. I'm so worried about Lyme's disease living out in the country.
: I love hearing about your camping adventures, and I can't wait until we start camping! I have awesome memories of camping when I was a kid.
MCB- Good to see you mama!! Are you all settled in??
NYCVeg- Ugh, I hope you get DD's allergies figured out, that's so scary. Rachel is allergic to peanuts, and soy. So far I haven't seen anything with the other two, but DH has alot of food allergies.
Shahbazin- Good grief momma, you amaze me with what you do being pregnant!!
I'm glad your dog is better.
Marylizah- Ugh, I hope the sleep fairy checks in waaay more this week for you!!!
Panthera- Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
JayGee- Hope your feeling better!! And big hugs to poor Kirsten.
Mom2Nat&Will- Hugs to you mama, hope your DH's surgery goes well.
Dharmama- Welcome back! You've been very missed! I'm glad things are going well for you!!
Oh, I have one more thing, will you guys keep my friend Jane and her family in your prayers/thoughts? She is a very good friend of mine, and is being deployed within the next month.
She has 3 beautiful children, 7,6 & 5. I have been sooo sad all day, they just got the news on Saturday. She will be gone for a year.
