I have to say, there's nothing quite a wonderful as being at home, in your own bed, surrounded by your happy, healthy family.

Jstar, glad you had a nice trip. Sorry 'bout that hedge! Which reminds me of the Monty Python: "Bring me....a shrubbery!" Sorry to hear also about Isaac's faceplant! What a total bummer!
Jacqueline--can you post a question to see if there are any speech therapists on MDC? I bet there are. I don't think stuttering is the end of the world but I do think it's not a great thing at his age.
I started out Amara drinking water out of bottles pretty early, can't remember when. 5 weeks? Just in case. She's eating lots of food now and that's what she eats when I am not around, no ebm, even much earlier (8 months). Why? mama too lazy to pump.
Lisa--thinking about Annabel and her daycare experience. It will be okay, and I know you know that, but I just want to hug you and say it. Of COURSE she's not as happy as when she's with her family, and in a few weeks it'll all be just fine. I can appreciate, however, how very heartwrenching it must be at times. go you on glass bottles! The vegan nuns nod in appreciation!
