Anna wakes every hour or two, MUST nurse for at least 15-20 minutes, and then generally flips if I try to unlatch her. I seriously am starting to resent nursing her in a big way. It's not good. ARGH -- I just don't know what to do about it.

And the weird thing is she has all her teeth except for her two year old molars. So no teeth are coming in! What the heck??? : :
Hey, this is what I thought. But I have decided that teeth must be coming in given crap sleep and lots of drool. Maybe 2 year molars already? Also, P's canines broke through a while ago but are still coming up. Maybe that's true for you, too?
Anyway, I hear all of you on the sleep thing. My boobs are tired and my back/pelvis is killing me from the side sleeping. Argh. Hopefully good sleep returns sometime within the next 3 mos.

I am glad I am not the only one. I too get tired of the "well you chose this" line of thinking when P wakes up at night. Really DH is frustrated that HIS sleep is being disturbed. He seems to think that having P sleep in another room / not in our bed or sidecarred to our bed or having him be weaned will somehow fix his nightwakings. I have tried to explain that 1. he would still wake up 2. I would then have to get up and go to another room when P wakes at night, so MY sleep goes downhill as a [pregnant full-time WOH nursing] mother while DH's might improve marginally and 3. did I mention these "solutions" wouldn't solve anything?
*sigh* I think they just aren't thinking this through.

P understands EVERYTHING but doesn't say too much. Recently he has learned "hot" (i.e. "HA") and stays away from anything hot, like the oven and stove. This one I particularly like.

Those pics are great! I really want to learn how to knit-- you make it look easy.

There are pictures of a porcupine right here.

My friend wants me to hold onto this costume so that her kids can wear it.

LOVE IT!!!

I had the afternoon from hades yesterday - it involved cleaning puke out of the car and one car seat. Puke from a 3-year-old who snuck more sweets than I authorized at a party we were at; puke from a 3-yr-old who doesn't usually have a lot of sugar, and whose stomach betrayed him in the car on the way home from the party. Gross. Gross. Gross. All is well now though, and there were several silver linings on the whole situation so that it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been. And now the almost 3-yr-old understands what I mean when I say too much sugar is bad for your belly.

Halloween pics to come soon!

Ew. So sorry. I remember about 2 years ago I had just picked the girls up from daycare, and we were on the way home and S1 said, "I don't feel so good". No sooner had the words left her mouth than she projectile vomited all over the car. In December. I had to pull over to the side of the highway, as we were 12 miles from the closest exit, and take her out, strip her down, wipe her off with baby wipes, then wrap her in one of my sweatshirts that I luckily had in the trunk. Then I managed to wipe most of it off the seat in front of her, and her carseat was, thankfully, dry.

No sooner had I gotten her strapped back in than she said, "Can I have some french fries?"
