I have also read posts about cereal being unnecessary and void of nutritional value. Does anyone have any research that backs that up?
That's a really good question...I haven't actually seen anything. I guess I'm just following my common sense and intuition, gradually introducing one thing at a time, and I don't think people can argue with that, especially as she looks sooo healthy. But I can't believe my ped told me to start with rice cereal at 5 mos with Axel, and I followed the whole routine to a tea! good grief, how silly!

Well, we're making our contribution tonight! I would like to make it to 700 personally before I go to bed, but maybe that won't happen. I'm sleeepy...

We cross-posting that's why!!
Mmm, so you've got fluffies coming your way? That dress set sounds really cool! As for me, lets see. I might buy a Babyhawk just to prove to romi that one doesn't need to paint to be cool.

I'm actually using bidnapper to bid on yarn all over Ebay tonight. It's sick really. Once you start knitting, it becomes all consumming. I think it's part of my ppd

Ambitious!!

The sandman is working on me too...I've been enjoying my "alone" time, though. Micah has been sick, but he has actually slept 1 1/2 straight and counting (probably shouldn't say that TOO loud ). He's either exhausted and getting much needed sleep or (hopefully) starting to feel a little better.

ha ha-I am an MDC addict also. In fact, my mom and dh make fun of me too. I am also addicted to DS. I just completed my first stash buying deal for another local mama. Man, did it feel good! I pretended it was for me, I mean us. I don't actually wear the diapers. Boy, if we had an income...watch out! It is probably a good thing we don't. In some ways.

So, Noah is officially SITTING up!!! 2 minutes-unassisted. Still no rolling. Still very quiet and stoic. I remember Andy being this way. In fact, we called him Stone Face.

My other internet addiction is abc.com-streaming shows. It takes 2 hours to get Noah in a deep sleep at night, so I knit and watch a little boob-tube...literally, have any of you seen The Bachelor? It is appalling (sp?).

Don't ask me about the Babyhawk...I can't say enough about it! I gave the deli lady an earful the other day...and the wood guy at home depot...
and it would totally make you cool. even from a painter's perspective.

well, i can knit. : just not very well. I'm left handed, and very slow. And I have no idea how to read a pattern, or even drop a stitch, or purl. So I guess that puts me back to NOT knowing how to knit. thank heavens! and hey- at least it's productive!! just think, your kids could eventually wear only hand-knitted clothes by you!!

Queen-post in other forums. That will get you up there. Why do you want more anyway? I want more posts so they will let me back in TP.

I read somewhere that babes aren't really ready for solids until they pop their first tooth. Andy had NO interest until the day it popped @ 9 months. Something about the gut being ready-makes sense. Also read don't start w cereals bc they are high-glycemic and little nutritional value. Start w veg/fruit bc we develop our taste buds at an early age and the obesity rate is so high as it is. And fiber is best for long-term health. Generally, I just don't talk about it much, unless pressed. Then I use Andy's intelligence and willingness to eat anything and everything as my reasons.

Kellymom has a wealth of info on solids. I remember Dr Sears (On Dr Phil) saying cereals are basically empty calories as well...

yea-country to city...bc dh is in school and it is hard. He is studying to be a PA. Stays in town a couple nights a week. He loses so much of his day to driving...we miss him. I am tired. Been battling PPD... Feeling better, houses closes on 10/22. But I have to get a PT job. A bit bummed about that, but it would be nice to have some $$$. And Noah is quite an easy babe. My mom offered to take the kids when I work. I am applying for Service Learning Coordinator at the U. PT w full-benefits. My perfect fit...prayers and well-wishes please! Good night-all! (gotta finish my row, Noah is crying again)

Liam had his first tooth at 13months.

OmG, I so missed MDC today! My dh thinks I'm a little nuts, when I giggle to the computer. Then he says, "oh, mothering...". Yep, my silly mama friends help me make it through the day. Time to stand and read, but no time to sit and post. Finally all are asleep here, too.

I picked up a flyer at the library today for a knitting class, but it's at 6:30pm til 8, I don't think I could swing it with the kids. Who am I kidding, I have no time anyway. I just can't keep up with you gals. Can't knit, don't paint, don't have a babyhawk, what is a girl to do!

I told dh today to hold off on canning(he brought home three buckets of apples!!!!), I wanted to have my kitchen clean for a day. So he swept the floor for me today and lo and behold, the kiddos napped together (never happens), so I got to mop and vaccuum. Amazing the things one gets excited about these days.

Anyone having battles between toddler and daddy? DH gets all upset when ds is bratty and I wish he didn't take it so personally, ds is bratty to me all day. Then dh gets upset if I "defend" ds, that's not the right word, but anyway. The kid is only 3 and has a new baby sister and wants to still be the baby even though he is really a little boy, and is still potty learning, it's all making me crazy and I wish I didn't have to deal with it!

I should have posted twice, one for good stuff, one for vent, to up our posts! Oh well, doing the best I can here.

I do wish I had some help sometimes. I'm feeling mama'd out. No family or good friends close by. Wah. At least my floors are clean tonight.
