Hi mamas! Still have to go back and catch up on the Sept. thread, but found this one and wanted to pop in...sorry to the kids hurting themselves (I can relate - Andrew walks around on any given day with a row of lumps and bruises across his head from his "adventures"!) and getting stung (I am scared of bees myself, and they are so aggressive this time of year!) And hi to pleasantstreets, welcome! You sound like a such a dedicated mama for trying so hard to bf and doing what you could for so long - I can't remember the name of your condition but I should know it....oh wait, I think it's mammary hypoplasia maybe? That could be wrong....I am tired today
We had so much fun yesterday - we went to a Maize Maze, which I've never done before! There's this enormous corn field and it's a regional attraction, each autumn they carve a different picture into the corn (this year was a pirate ship) and it's a life-size maze, you start on one end have to get to the other end without getting lost, along the way finding hidden treasure posts to collect the pieces of the puzzle that will make up the aerial view of the field so you can see the pirate ship. Then there's a corn slide for the kids and other fun stuff when you're finished - if you don't get lost! They say it takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hrs to find your way through. We had a blast! Did it with 2 other families and it was great - I'll have to post some pics!
We had a few months where Andrew was nursing all night, which was driving me nuts, but now in the past few weeks he's gotten better - only waking up a couple of times a night, usually. I'm sure that will change again at some point
For now though, it was enough to finally bring back my cycle! I got my first PPAF this past week - which I am very happy about because it's one step closer to being able to ttc again! (I say one step closer because I don't think I'm actually ovulating yet....at least now I can start charting something though!)
I love autum, my favorite season!! As Sarah said though, it's waaaay too hot here in the NE!! I want some cool, crisp, fall weather!
