jello! Now that is an awesome idea!

I'm slightly afraid that it is haunted. :

Fireant, I think my husband would use that as some receptacle for beer fermentation. At least that's the first thing that came to my mind.

I strongly concur that it must be haunted.

WBV today... 19 pounds, 29 inches. So... there you go. And all that. She is currently delighting herself with the OBNOXIOUS AS HE!! toy that one of my relatives gave her on Saturday. We stopped in to her school today and dropped off all her supplies. They're kosher w/ the fuzzi bunz, hooray... though I am selfishly VERY GLAD she was wearing a Huggies when she had her poo today.

I am delighting (ha) myself with frying up all the leftover hamburger meat from Saturday's bash. I wayyyy overbought on Costco hamburger patties. They're the size of serving platter and as thick as a couch cushion, so I guess I didn't need to buy one for each guest. Some is frying up for later use and I made meatloafs out of the others.

OTOH, there is soy in everything, even if you don't drink pure soy milk or eat tofu. If you eat anything processed at all (say, cereal, anything with coloring or flavoring), chances are there is some soy in in already. The US actually eats more soy than most asian countries for that reason. Soy was harder for me to eliminate than dairy, actually, at least at trace level. And then there's the rest of the top 8, including corn, peanut, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, in addition to what you've mentioned already.
Just the circles so far as we can tell. Of course I have 'em, as does my mom and my sister and my grandmother and my aunt, SO, it's either a wicked familial allergy, or just genetic dark circles. Who knows? Maybe we won't get her tested. She handles nuts just fine, with no adverse effects whatsoever. We haven't tried any fish yet, and she doesn't have enough teeth to chew corn, so we stay away from that too.

Just babbling away here.....

: beer receptacle...
Do you guys remember the TV series friday the 13th? with all the haunted antiques? yikes!

how come everyone else has a tiny baby and I have a ginormous one?

lil ant can find her chicken-dance elmo wherever we hide it...that is the number one most obnoxious toy...not only does he sing and dance to his own ego song but his neck is broken so it sounds like a mini-machine gun is going off as he cranks it around.

Um... okay.... so toddlers huh?

I laughed because Korin said she wasn't a cow, but then Megan said she has a kid and she is thinking about being a goat. And wondered if Korin was vegan and didn't eat any dairy products but then remembered that Korin is a coconut That made sense again.

My baby urm, toddler, keeps bonking his head. I will never get pictures.

I'm becoming more crunchy each day....

I like meat : And I like to dunk my cookies in cow's milk. Does that count as drinking? I do like chocolate cows... Yes, chocolate cows are good..... especially when shaken.....Um, that is all I can think of and now I must go eat.

That's freakin hilarious. :
How big is your kid? I forget. P is officially 27 lbs and 30.25 inches. Did I say that already? Oh and "he still has a big head!" they say.

I don't think I'll ever get pictures either. I know as soon as I schedule them somebody is going to run into something. Evie walked into the corner of a table at least 6 times yesterday! She didn't hit it very hard and it didn't phase her, but I was afraind that she ws going to get a big blue knot on her head. And speaking of knots on heads, does anyone else call them pump knots? Jonathan laughs at me and swears he'd never heard them called that.

I finally found a bathing suit for her today. I have been looking and looking for 12 months, but now that I've gotten it think that maybe I should have gotten 18 months. : It looks so short in the torso...

Okay, all my remaining FBs are size large, not PT - sorry about that. And FWIW, my kids have all gone straight to PT FBs and skipped mediums. PTs are almost the same as mediums but w/a longer rize so that's all my kids wore until they potty trained. The larges I have are from a friend, but lmk if anyone is interested in those or I'll give them back to her to sell since I don't think I'm going to use them...

Had a lovely time in northern MI...very relaxing vacation...sigh...I miss it already!

Cow's milk...two of my kids love it, one has never liked it and never had it as a baby...she drank OJ which has more calcium anyway! I've never given Mikey anything but mama milk, but DH says sometimes he mixes the EBM with cow's milk now to make it last since I don't get as much when I pump now...Mikey still nurses all night though...I'm pretty lax about that stuff though. Mikey's already had peanuts, cashews and almonds as well as eggs, cider and honey. You can go ahead a revoke my good mother card now...LOL.

I think this is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. And I'd totally be scared of it being haunted, and I'd totally put jello in it...though I don't know how you'd get it unmolded without breaking it..........

Yeah - we're all lousy moms here.


We're on our way to my parents' house for the week to spend some time with my aunt who's visiting (and doesn't get to see the kids much - in fact met K for the first time at her party this weekend), and will be back Sunday - so I'll be remote all week.

Here's one pic of K from her Bday - I love the whole feel of this pic.

Catch ya later, peeps!

That head is totes haunted! Put it on eBay! Remember the haunted paintbrush that was on there a few years ago? Big internerd meme.

Harper has had almonds and walnuts, not by my hand. I would say she's been fine, but it's one exposure in each case. I am not totally sure when a problem would show up, so we're trying to steer clear anyway. My bad mother moment? She licked up a drop of beer that spilled on the table. Just leaned right over. What kind of mother wastes beer?!

What are all the babies/toddlers/crazed baboons into playing with/doing right now? I will admit that I am a little stumped as to how to keep her entertained these days. I think I need to go look for a good set of wooden blocks at the consignment place. We've been going outside a lot since it seems to wear her out. The playground is now where it's at.
post #36 of 366
Helen~ Mother and child had a huge set last week.

i often find myself wondering how to entertain her these days. a box gets alot of milage untill it's flat.Then I guess it's no more fun.

I need to go to the consignment shop today.I am unloading the rest of the baby stuff. Swing, clothes, bummo seat : .stuff like that.
post #37 of 366
Oh, that reminds me, Nicole, there's a new consignment shop in Dracut off Lakeview (http://littletrends.com/). I looked in the window while it was closed, and it looked pretty good. I think I am going to take some stuff over there soon since selling it on Craigslist is a big pain.

Right now she's climbing in and out of a storage bin.

she is 30/31 pounds (homescaling) and I think 33 inches tall. but I haven't checked in awhile. her friends are all around 18-22lbs and they're all around her age or older. :

I'm jealous of your N. MI trip!

cute baby!!!

If we do a jello thing we can make a mold of the head and then use that for the jello...we have a brain mold for jello too and that would be a cool set up for Halloween!

: I'm scared of ghosts!


my kid has gone into the great dancing phase that now includes marching in place and some tune in Tokyo moves...she like Marvin Gaye too. Where do kids get these dance moves from?

blocks are just a destroy toy here...we build it, she knocks it down. I got her a bunch of those ball-pit balls that are an endless source of entertainment.

Although we are now sadly into elmo, we've been calling the monsters by our made names...like Grover=blue monster, Elmo=red monster. I'm scared of elmo, he has tight grip on the babies. And he is very narcissistic.

Good Gravy, Helen, I think I may have to break up with you. YOU SPILLED BEER? thats worse than spilling breast milk!


Hmmm how do we keep Ruby occupied? I'm supposed to play with her??? We're outside a lot, anything she can throw or toss, and her new fave toy, Gertrude Finkelstine - see the blog for deets. If you cant see it, I'll put up a pix on flickr.
post #40 of 366
I love that that was Korin's 6969 post. I am easily amused...

We play with our sibling. This is not always safe. We play with toy cars. We play with balls. We play with silverware. We play with tupperware. We also play in the play kitchen. We like the slide at the park. We try to knock our head into as many things as possible, seeing how many brain cells we can get rid of. We think it is great fun to take all of the clothes that mommy just folded out and run with them all over the house. And alas, we are crying right now.... sigh...
