Are there any other babies NOT rolling over yet? My fat man is still sedentary. When I put him on his tummy after a while he just sorta gives up and lays his face down in the carpet pathetically waiting for someone to mercifully flip him over.

Could be a defense mechanism. He's playing dead to hopefully avoid atttracting attention to himself from his big brother.

Kade isn't yet...he's close to on front and back though. He has the hang of it with his lower half, he just doesn't know how to get over those chubby arms yet. He used to do that same thing until the past few days.

Clay barely rolls and only when I am not looking it seems (perhaps his brother helps him?). He can roll if I put him on his side but mostly he just stays right where I put him At 21 pounds plus a cloth diapered butt, moving is lightly a real effort!

Not interested in rolling over here either... I've seen them both do it totally unassisted/unprompted, so I know they're both capable. But they could really care less!

You all have me inspired to make some babylegs - I was just thinking about it and now you're pics have pushed me over the edge... Granted I still have to finish my diaperkits dipes and the wool cover I started...

oh and I just read the "woe is me" posts and I'd like to join!!! The company DH works for just grew a ton way too fast and as a result - the *earliest* he's gotten home in the last two weeks is 8 pm, and even then, he has to do a couple of hours of work from home still. And this weekend, they hosted investors, so Friday he wasn't home until after 11pm, Saturday he was gone from 6:30 am until 11pm and Sunday from 7am to 11pm.

So lately, I've been a single mother of twins with no car. But this weekend he's finally got time off so I get a husband again!!!

Our little girlie is getting huge, too. And, seriously, I am spoiled. She is such an easy going baby (thank goodness, ebcause her siblings are not). And I hear ya on the "Ambassador to the WOrld" thang (okay, it's be a really long time since I've chimed in! ) She is all smiles. And at 20+ lbs, that's alot of grin...she is rolling back to front, but doesn't last long in that position...she can't seem to roll back over and does a pilates/yoga stretch push up with her hands. Isn't it fun to have a baby??? We get so excited over their little acheivements with each new one. My milk supply dipped there for awhile with these elimination diets we're on for 3 yr old dd, but I think we've built it back up now...so that's our life with our babe...hopefully I'll get back in here (instead of Health and Healing) more often...ya'll are probably wondering who this is hijacking the thread...

I don't have time to write a long check - I have got to get to bed...

But I can't figure it out... Can someone please explain the benefit of baby legs to me? I don't get it. :

And I really want to - because I'd love love love to sew some up with my newbie sewing skills.

Number one on my list - one less layer to remove for diaper changes!

I've also read that some mom's keep em stashed in their diaper bag in case they end up someplace chillier than expected... and they can protect little crawling knees (pants can too, but hey - how much cuter are these!!! esp with a good lookin' cd... )

Baby Legs are great because you don't have to take anything off to change diapers. Also, I can just whip them right off when we go outside (we live in AZ) and just put them back on when we go in the A/C. They are just so much easier than pants and strech so they grow with your baby. (I don't mean to sound like a salesperson)

subbing though...

Hey you guys,

I am unable to keep up with you, i am super-busy with my 2 yo and we are ECing Sarah (here she is) so it is impossible to come here every day!
I am so happy everyone is doing so good!

Well now I feel badly for trading my two pairs of baby legs on the TP , except they didn't really fit my baby's thighs too well anyway.

When will someone make baby legs for the husky gentleman?

My husky guy is wearing them! They make the comfort cuff ones and also HuggaLuggs (or whatever that AU brand is) work well too.

Hey there Mamas! Whew- what a week...

the return of af also brought a tornado of unprecedented emotions... I mean, I am usually a pretty passionate woman, and am no stranger to emotion, but OMG! I think this last moon was the most challenging of my life thus far... will this happen every month from now on??? Or will things even out some as my body regulates from the postpartum hormonal dredge....

ugh. All this to say, I am breathing deep and coming slowly out of it here. I held a woman's circle in my studio tonite and the topic was "balance"... perfect timing.

Hey everyone! We have been busy busy busy here. Henry is easy. It's so fun. Today he was a bit crabby - his second tooth popped through so I guess that was bothering him. He only slept for two 5 minute stretches between about 11 AM and 5 PM. That's not too bad when I write it, but it seemed like a lot longer than that! I don't have a clock in the bedroom and that is making my nights easy, but mornings a bit difficult because I don't know if I should get up or not! So, I get up and walk around the house to discover it's 6:30 and I should have stayed in bed and tried to get him to go right back to sleep. Oh well. (Uh oh I just heard my dog drinking out of a toilet that I put one of those 2000 Flushes tablets in - it has bleach! I hope he doesn't die. Guess I should give them more water, he just emptied the dog water dish.)

Delia was 14 months when I got my period back, so I'm hoping for that with Henry too. We shall see!

Oh, Stephanie, let me try to explain a sleeping hood / panel extender option. It's what comes with Sutemi packs. It's a rectangle of fabric about 5" tall and the width of the panel. The ends are loops that you thread the shoulder straps through, so you don't have to sew anything to the carrier. You can kind of scrunch up the fabric if it's in the way, or use it all the time to extend the panel and give napping head support. Does that make sense? If you don't want to sew, you could try just safety pinning some fabric at the top of the panel to each shoulder strap too, so pin it to the carrier on 3 sides of the rectangle.

Megan, that picture of Clay at the park is hilarious - that hat!!!

I love BabyLegs and Huggalugs, but I haven't used them on Henry much yet. I am liking socks that go up to his knees, and haven't felt like I need to get his knees covered yet. He did give himself rug burn once but we've been better about keeping him on a sheet or having pants on him since then. I have used BabyLegs for years (I bought a batch of the original handmade ones before the owner had them manufactured!) and still use them on my daughter. I love them for keeping her ankles/calves warm.

We have nine kittens to deal with. Anyone want some?! The barn cats were pregnant when we moved in. Surprise!! LOL

Ok. I've been waiting to post all DAY!

I could have just posted this on the car-seat forum I frequent-- or some random forum here, but last time I posted about it I got ripped a new one (well, not reall, but I felt really invalidated). Maybe I deserve a virtual slap, I don't know.

I've had another panic attack while driving. The last time I had one Mick was less than a month old. I always tend to be sorta anxious while driving. I don't know if it's all the wrecks I've been hearing about here or what. . .but I couldn't handle it today. Nothing happened, I just. . .sigh. . . I feel like such a wuss. Driving stresses me out. MSAX, KDT-- you guys are OK, right?
I guess it's not just driving. I'm so scared something is going to happen to one of the kids. Maybe it's my friend who's son just died, but he was 17. Not that that makes it OK or anything. . .I'm just lost. How do I go from my ordiary level of anxiety to two days of near hyperventilation for no immediate reason?
What's hitting me?
Does anyone else deal with anxiety about this kinda stuff?
I feel like something is just off. . .

Man. I wish I could just chill the F out.
