quick post before i eat lunch
sorry you are having problems vannienicole
that sounds rough. i hope the LC can help you
happy belated birthday willo! i'm 33 too
i am SOOO uninterested in sex. breastfeeding really saps my sex drive. i worried about it after my first birth but this time i know it will come back someday. in the meantime i do feel sorry for dh
poor deprived man. but yeah, if it isn't the lack of desire there is also the WHEN factor. by the time both boys are down for the night we are crashing out ourselves. the stars are just not aligned right now
ebin is doing well. his dream sleeping is over and he is waking during the night. still manageable though. and he's started grabbing toes! and really trying to grab everything.
i agree that there is so much 'disposable' baby stuff. and while pre-baby you think you need all kinds of things it is really a reality check how fast they grow and grow out of all of it. i still have my exersaucer walkabout from isaac and we just brought that up from the basement to use. ebin likes it for a short while. we don't have a johnnyjumpup and are lacking in doorways to put it. don't have a floormat play thingy this time and i was contemplating buying one 2nd hand but he'll be crawling around before we know it anyway. the one thing we just recently bought is an AWESOME BOB stroller. it was almost $400 but our first stroller is dirty and gross and squeaky because we took it camping multiple times (and it has seen 3 years of heavy use). and i know we'll get a good solid 3 years of use out of the new BOB. it isn't a double but isaac can sit on the front footrest (which is handy because he wants to ride a lot still.) (i can't remember if i posted here about the bob already).
i spent $100 on a ring sling when ebin was born and i already can hardly use it
i grocery shopped with ebin in the sling and isaac in the race car cart on tuesday and just about died. he is so heavy it is so painful. so i guess i should sell it. i'm feeling bad i spent so much $$ on it to only get 4 months of use. but it *was* handy i have to remember and i used it a lot. time to move on to the ergo but last time i tried it he wasn't digging it. i went to a baby expo and looked at chinese style double shoulder carriers but i feel like i can't possibly spend another $70 on carriers. especially since the stroller purchase was a major stretch on the budget. they were like 'oh you could still use it with your 3 yo' uh...my 3yo is 40 lbs and i can hardly carry him down the stairs now. i just have heavy babys and it makes babywearing a pain in the neck (literally). is it painful for everyone or am i just a wimp???? i'm guessing ebin is 18lbs or so.
ok. must eat. it is rainy rainy here today. and we took dh to the airport for a conference in vegas this morning. 4 days solo with these 2 boys!!! yipes. sometimes it royally sucks not to have family around.
