Ay-yi-yi! Our i-net didn't work over the weekend, and I've got some major reading to do. Yay for nakking!
Solids: I've given Elisabeth tastes of banana, pear, apple, applesauce, mooshed up some peas, let her suck on a cube of pineapple. I gave her a it of plain baked tater last night. She liked it, I think. My ILs and aunt keep asking when we're starting cereal.
Mon am: Her second tooth is visible just under the skin/gum. Tues am: I can feel it now.
I know of a couple ladies who give juice for constipation, one apple, one pear.
Carriers: I'm going to make, well, have my MIL (she's great
) help me make a brocade sling. I've been wanting one badly. I'm borrowing an OtSBH from an AP group, and I need to send it back.
EC: Elisabeth has started crying, wriggling before she goes in her diaper, so we've been catching more more pees! I'm really excited because it's been 4 months!
"I have this major perfection thing, where if i can't do stuff perfectly, i throw up my hands and go "why bother?" it is very defeating and unproductive."
I am exactly the same way!
: I hate it.
TTC: I would like #2 when E is about two. I loved having her in the springtime, not having to deal with the cold and cold season and a tiny baby. To me, three years is too long.
Spacing: I was 28 mos older than my bro, we fought, but we were really close, he was my best friend until I started dating at 17. I was homeschooled until 11th grade, the private Christian school a year, then community college classes that were credited for both for a year. So I had a semester's worth of credits that transferred, pretty cool. I know several profs' kids at my college who took the whole 4 years of high school at college and had a degree when they graduated from HS. Makes sense to me! School loans are awful. I agree on the teaching to the testing. I'm an Elementary Education grad, one year teaching at a private school.
I started 1st grade PS to learn computers, half days, and went to second grade, but had an older kid on the school bus ask me to have sex. My mom wasn't happy with that and other things.
Nursing tops: I think I'm too small for the cami top idea, I feel like it cuts into the underside of my boob when it's pulled out.
I just pull up whatever shirt and bra I have on. Nursing bras are more flexible, have quit messing with unhooking them to nurse. Or a sweatshirt and no bra. I'm B/C.
Sex: AF since 6 week PP!
I've always had a high drive until E was about 4 mos and since then I kinda don't care. I want to, but I'm not after DH all the time like I was before, and I feel like there's something wrong with me, 'cause, yeah, 2x a week is pitiful for me. I guess we're okay, meeting in the middle, but I was still in high gear fairly soon after E was born, I only had 'skid marks,' no tearing, so I was ready at 3 weeks PP. I haven't had PPD as far as I can tell, a few days I'm down, usually after I'm ready for action, and DH is too tired, whatever. . . I hate feeling rejected. I guess I do the passive-aggressive feel-sorry-for-myself thing.
Oh yeah, condoms here, I just never wanted to mess up the way my hormones should be.
"I didn't tell my hubby the condoms were from my mom. I figured it would kill the mood."
ED: I am so tired of avoiding wheat. I still feel hungry when I eat, generally. And I know I'm eating healthy stuff. I worry about getting enough to make enough milk for Elisabeth. I would love the rice flour pizza dough and cookie recipes. Please post them!!!
Which reminds me, how does playing "Gumby nipple" up your supply?
Dawn, Sam is so cute! And Salt and Pepper, that's too fun, they match, but aren't exactly alike. . . I always feel bad when I can't tell twins apart, and it doesn't help when they're dressed alike.
E's been saying dada since Sunday, she gets excited just b/c we are,
