Congratulations Jacquie, and welcome Julianna! Beautiful name.

August already??? I feel like I'm stuck in some cruel time warp.

Yeah, it IS August! Good thing I came here to read all the well wishes and smilie art! Emmalola-August is all yours!!!!!!

J slept for 8 hours last night! I'm not taking that as normal. She's just a much more tired baby than G was. And, a sleepy nurser. It was great for me to get that rest though. But, I still feel like I need to nap today, and will! She's peed and pooped and sneezes a lot, so all orifices seem to be functioning. Her nose came out a bit squished, so she's very snuffly when she's not sleeping or nursing. We'll post pics today on the YG, probably.

I'll do a more complete birth story when I have a bit more brain power. However, I'm very glad it's over and glad it was quick. And, I don't feel the need to do it again.

G is taking quite well to his baby sister so far. We'll keep seeing how that goes.

More updates later. Now I'm off to eat breakfast!

need breakfast. babe woke up too early. why do they always sleep late when we have somewhere to be (yesterday) and get up early when we have nowhere to be?

Darn! Someone beat me to it! LOL. It's probably because I slept in till 7. I still don't feel rested though. Ahh... the joys of pregnancy.

KK- you totally made me laugh out loud. Hard to believe this is MY MONTH! zoinks! Or at least I'd like this to be my month. With a EDD of Aug 28th, who knows, right?

Jacquie, glad to hear all orifices are in working order. Your sweet little babe. awwwwwww. I also laughed at your comment about how you have no need to do it again.

My babe has his foot jammed way up in my ribcage and it's totally, totally killing me. Breathing, slouching, laying on my side- all painful. I've been putting arnica cream on it, but it's not really helping much. I swear, I have a broken rib in there.

Hapy August, all! August is one of my favorite months because it's monsoon season in the southwest, so we have nice cleansing rainstorms almost every afternoon. Such a treat after hot hot July. Not a bad time to be pregnant.

I LOVED living in IN because the rain was WARM! Something I was totally not accustomed to in Washington. I LOVE warm rain. It's just romantic... and their electrical storms are stunning!

Need coffee. Now.
post #10 of 441
i just drank a measly half cuppa because it was full strength i made for doug (that 50s housewife thing). it just isn't enough! ha.

my babe is 2 months old today! *sniff* he's not newborny anymore. he's getting gigantic and is really developing head control and more predictable patterns of sleeping and awake times. they change so fast. i just *love* the newborn phase -- enjoy every second of it jacquie!!!

i too feel like birth is empowering in an "i never want to do that again" way :

i can't wait to see pictures of julianna - does she have G's big beautiful eyes?? does she look similar to G when he was born?

ebin doesn't really look a lot like isaac although he will make some expressions that are exactly like isaac

ebin has his 2 month wbv today. i'm taking isaac along so our ped can look at his burns. i think they're ok but don't look so great after having a bandaid on them. i'm doing no bandaids at home so they air out. i'm still so freaked that that happened and keep thinking about how much worse it could have been other than that camping was a success. our new giant tent rocks. we camped at a reservoir which was realllllly low and the fishing wasn't great. but there were tons of beautiful wildflowers and we saw a lot of deer. i love deer we also got to watch a snake catch a frog. then a teenage boy came along and started swinging the snake around and stepping on it and i just about lost it. i hate to think of my boys becoming mean teenagers someday

oy my house is a mess. must.clean.today

Did you get the xtracycle??? I bought a bike that I can later get the free loader for, but for now I am riding it as is and coveting the xtracycle stuff. Alison is a little irked that I spent the money I did on getting my bike commute ready - still I am toying with getting a babyseat since I will do annabel drop off at day care in a couple of months (but I am in denial that she'll be going to DC so soon and I can't bring myself to imagine it.: ) Anyway, what did you get in the mail today???
post #17 of 441
ummm... i just realized that annabel and fernie's W are 6 months old today and tomorrow, respectively. sheesh, where is the time going? and my little-y one is going to be one year old in 50ish days... holy crapoley.

must go grocery shopping.

haven't check my mail yet today but will update you when i do, lisa. :

Weeeellll

Long story short, I did get the Townie SUB. The Townie I got at a local bike shop on clearance, and then I ordered the Freeradical and the Peapod bike seat for the back and a pair of footsies.
First I was just going to use a trailer. Then I realized it takes forever to hook up the trailer, get everyone in, and it feels unsafe to me to ride hauling that thing around. Especially compared to the bike seat I already have. And N is totally crushed in it. She is just too tall for it unless she is alone. And it is hard to park. And after 10 minutes the kids get squirelly and the trailer is all over the road. This could of course happen if they are on the back of the bike, but then I can reach them and smack them (JK):
So I decided I would get the Freeradical and put it on my own old bike. Then I decided that I would not get anything and DH agreed that I should just go out and ride and I should not need all the extra stuff... Well, when and how can I do that? The kids are always with me!
Then I test rode some bikes and I just liked the Townie the best but again decided I was not worth all the money to hopefully get to a more bike centered lifestyle. Then my sister pointed out that the return on investment in the case of a bike is not the gas you save, but the joy of riding your bike - and being able to do it regardless of having the kids along. And if I waited to have a bike centered lifestyle before buying the bike I would just be frustrated that I couldn't get there because I didn't have the tools to do it.
By the way Lisa, You are welcome to our old bike seat if you want it as a place holder till you get your very own peapod or bobike (for the front of your bike) I like having the little guys on the front of the bike. The seat we have is a very cheapo seat so I would say, get the peapod, which will last, work with the freeradical and meets Dutch safety standards for bike seats. Of course, growing up there I am not sure what that means since I used to ride on cargo racks all the time.
Anyway, all the stuff is at the bike shop and is getting put together and will be ready next week some time.

I don't want to wait but I have to.

And that is my mailbox update...
