It was said above, but they are a "fair trade" company, all Made in the US clothes.. it says right on their label that they are made in downtown L.A. paying fair wages to their workers. None of that sweat-shop crap! They are very good quality too

Good luck with your move! Where are you going now?

I've turned into Suzy Homemaker! I've been completely obsessed lately with cooking and baking for my blog! My DH sure hasn't minded, he's been eating lots of yummy home made food.. lol!

Sebastian seems to be meeting all his milestones Lots of toe eating, talking, rolling over, laughing, he can sit up alone for a few seconds.. He is still pooping A LOT! I thought it was suppose to slow down! I've been letting him gum my fresh fruit when I eat it, and now he mimics us when we are eating by smacking his lips together and pretending to chew the air! So cute!

baraka, when i first read your pinot-inspired post i thought something went awry with your current marriage!? i was almost in tears....until i realized you were speaking of an xh. i hope you find the retreat you're looking for!

samgroom, i'm a HUGE better world shopper fan! i keep the handbook tucked away in my bag and have most of the regular things we buy memorized. i've given quite a few handbooks as gifts, too. i also love ten thousand villages. (www.tenthousandvillages.com)

i give ezra a bath/shower about once a week. for the first couple months it was much less but dh started making fun of me & telling people i don't bathe our child. well...that little bit of fun stopped when i told him he could feel free to bathe him!

Hi all! I've been lurking from time to time, thought I'd post.

DD is also teething. Oh joy!

And (I'm cursing myself here) just this week, she has gotten herself to sleep by sucking her middle fingers. One minute she was rolling around on her blanket in the dining room, the next I look over and she's asleep, on her side, sucking her fingers! I've actually been able to lay her in her crib and she has fallen asleep. Amazing! DS NEVER NEVER NEVER did anything remotely like this so DH and I are blown away. I wasn't sure we should bother with a crib with DD but I borrowed a really nice one from a friend, and heck, it's actually getting some use! Incidentally, I also used to suck my middle fingers. Funny.

I wrote a similar post earlier, but somehow I deleted it.

Thanks emiLy about the lead. Supposedly there is someone coming one of these days to look at the place but haven't heard from them yet. I'm torn between being glad that I have some more time to clean up the house and frustrated that nothing has happened yet. We do have an appt. for another test next week.

Dd1 wants to be a ladybug for hween, I'm going to ask a couple more times to make sure it's real before I go buying fabric and stuff. Haven't really given it much thought for Kiran. We probably still have a bug costume (hey, it would be a theme!) that's about 12 mos. size. Kiran will swim in it but hey, it's not like she'll trip on the hem.

And, yes, she does get the armpit hair, but she gets it from dh.
. . . and some scary cradle cap too, but I know it's not a real problem . . . .

That's ADORABLE! I love the way she has her hands in her mouth. BTW-- I almost bought that same blanket about six times. I didn't need it, which is why I never actually got it, but I thought it was so soft and cuddly.

can i just say....

i want to get pregnant again simply so i don't have to clean the kitty litter!? seriously, why is it that dh can be so diligent (with constant reminders) to keep the litter box clean but the second i'm no longer with child, i'm back in the trenches!? i've been pregnant 5 times & the same thing has happened with all five....grrrrrrrr.

another complaint ~ i love my mei tai but i'm so sad i didn't get one with a neck support flap. ezra has fallen asleep on my back twice today (while out & about) and each time i've had to bend over slightly while walking. i've tried selling it here & on diaperswappers & on craigslist but no bites. i wonder if i could sew something on it myself?

one more "woe is me".....i just got home from a local clothing resale event & it sucked! i've had this on my calendar for weeks & was all prepared to come home with some new-to-me winter gear (in my new big-girl size) but it was awful. if it wasn't ugly, it was way overpriced.

i wish i had something positive to say. sorry about the moaning....

maybe i'll take a minute to play with my siggy. i've been pretty boring in this area since i changed my username.....

I love the blanket. Yep it is cozy and cuddly... one of our favorites. You should get it so we match

Since we're posting woe is me....
we were rear-ended today. It was hard enough that when DH hit the seat his body bent the driver's seat frame and twisted it, and pushed it back into the car seat and flipped it up (partially). : We are all mostly ok, the baby was sleeping, thank goodness, but was scared awake. I have to go out and get a new carseat tomorrow. Luckily the insurance of the woman that hit us will pay for all the damages and the new seat, but still, grrrrrrr!

oooooh! What are you going to get? . . . I mean, I'm very glad everyone is OK, and I'm curious what kind of carseat you are planning on getting.

Car wrecks suck.

whine, whine. my child support was a day late, and my bank charged me 240 bucks in overdraft fees. yes you read that right. i spent all afternoon formulating my case and going up there to beg. they took so effin much that i didn't have enough to cover the checks that were still out, so they would have given me _more_ fees still! I managed to get just over half the fees refunded, but holy crap. not like we want to do anything important with our money, just eat, pay bills, y'know, frivolous stuff...

in other news, Claire loves bananas--Lili let her have a microscopic taste earlier today and she lunged for it! i can't believe how hard she tries to grab everything within her reach lately--she's dangerous!

also a local radio station is having a baby contest and since the prize is 1000 bucks i totally entered Claire! : when her pic is up on the website, i'll link it here so y'all can vote for her
