April 2007 babes - November HAS ARRIVED! - Page 8

post #141 of 626
He keeps falling on his head!! I don''t know what he is trying to do but he keeps getting up on all fours (meaning his feet and hands) straightening his legs and lunging face first onto the floor!!!! This is the first day he's done this...I have no idea what he is trying to accomplish - but I am sure he is not purposly landing on his little forehead! Do you think I should stop him? He's out with DH right now (aparently still up to it according to what DH said on the phone). This morning I stopped him sometimes and let him do it sometimes...I don't want him to get hurt but I do want him to experiment and explore...OH he also grabbed and tried to pull up on a dangling electrical cord today (this was not at our house) - I think my ideas of plopping my cute little blob on the floor and going on with whatever I am doing might be reaching on end... do you even bother telling a 6mo "no" or trying to "explain" that something is dangerous? Yikes-- I'm off to put the outlet covers in...

G went to bed at like 6 pm tonight. Slept off and on until about 10 mins ago. She's rolling around on the floor like a lunatic right now.....I really hope she wears out soon. I want to go back to bed :

Sigh I feel like a bad Mommy, DS just fell off the bed. I was getting a new diaper ready for him and watching him, but he reached for something on the nightstand and tumbled off the bed just as grabbed for him. Sigh, on the plus side the bed is much lower to the ground then ours at home, and he just seemed startled more then anything else, since he is playing happily now. Poor baby .

Oh poor Desmond!!!

Awww, poor guy! Don't feel bad, though...I think we have all done it at one time or another.

I am, as I write this, having a walk-away-before-I-get-too-frustrated moment. Hannah has been fussing and fussing today. Why is it that when they need us the most is the most frustrating for us?? She must be going through something, but I just can't do it for the next few minutes. I have checked everything, changed, nursed, teething tablets, let her play by herself, etc. etc., and nothing is working. *sigh* I really think she's teething. I hope this gets over with soon.

Oh, btw...she is laying in her crib (we put the side on it because I was getting beat up at night, and she started rolling off the bed) and just talking right now. She'll fuss for a second, and then start playing with her toes or something. Oh, to be in her cute little head!

lol just hangin around here. Not much new going on...G has her 6 month WBV on friday....I am quite interested to see how much she weighs. I am guessing she's closing in on 20 lbs. I told her the other day she's going to have to start walking soon....she's getting heavy. DH helpfully pointed out that once G grows about 3 more inches, she'll be half my height. FANtastic I can just see her, at age 12, towering over me, and saying, "I don't have to listen to you...I'm bigger!"

I was dealing with hellion toddler yesterday. Scarlet has another tooth! Top one, and the other top will come through any day now. Funny, she will NOT let me touch them.

She's fussy, gotta run.

Where oh where are all of us! What a slow group we are the past couple of days!

We've had conferences for the two older girls. They went well.

S doesn't have her wcc until the 26th. She was a week late for the other and then with me going on a work trip and Thanksgiving, we had to move it till then.

Guess what Sophia did last night! She banged two toys together!

And then she cried and cried for the sitter last night and wouldn't take her bottle. The night before she cried for me and wouldn't nurse at all before falling asleep. Over stimulated? Other thoughts? We'll see what tonight brings.

Warning: HUGE VENT!

Ugh, girls, I'm having a rough time! I'm still sick, and Evangeline got up 3 times again last night, I'm sosoo tired I'm going to actually have a nap today! And not until she settles down, though. Axel has been a hellion too- he peed in his pants 2 x today, and every single time I ask/need him to do something it's a struggle- either plain old ignoring, defiance, running away, doing something else or 'in a minute!'. He gets crabby and whiney too when he doens't nap, and it drives me insane. I feel like I don't geta true break. I can't keep up with the house and I have no freaking desire to. Sometimes when Axel doesn't listen I get madder than I want to, and then that gets frusterating. I'm so tired. The house is a mess, even though the cleaner came on Sunday. Painting hasn't being going well, I'm frusterated, and can't get into it, and I'm sick of having people over at my house every day (co-op student and friend) and the pressure that goes a long with that. I spent too much $$ on diapers and I'm pissed about that bad decision becuase I've spent 40 in shpping for 3 diapers, I haven't even received them yet. I missed Evangeline's appt today:, that's 2 missed appts the last couple months! I feel disconnected, and like I waste half the day. Ok, i obviously need more sleep. I don't know- like what is my problem?! I love being a mom, and right now I'm not enjoying anything, I feel moody and frusterated and tired. I don't want to join this club (the frusterated overtired mommy club)!

that doesn't even feel better!

Oh, poor Queen, you had my yesterday today. I had a little crying jag last night and that felt better. When Max doesn't eat he gets REALLY cranky, but sometimes he just refuses to eat, so what can I do? Today is much better so far, but my floors still need mopping and we're still knee deep in apples. I feel like just when I get caught up, dh has another mess for me to clean up. Yes, dh, he gets on a roll with these projects and doesn't seem to realize it makes more work for me. Oops, now I'm ranting. Sorry, hope you feel better soon.

On an up note, Scarlet is asleep, I got the buckets of chicken feed out to the shed and it's relatively quiet. Oh, and the house smells of yummy cinnamon, as Max put some cinnamon sticks in the kettle on the wood stove.

He said a funny thing today, we'd been vacuuming: "Mom, I love Scarlet so much, I think she should have her own vacuum. Mine will be black and hers will be red." The kid loves to vacuum!

Yay, Sophia! Mclisa, post some more pics of her, I can't remember what she looks like. (sorry)

Hi everyone,

I haven't posted too much to our thread, it seems like by the time I ever get to it it's already several hundred posts long! So I start reading and then I never get to actually post.

Valerie will be 7 months old on the 16th of this month. Hard to believe how fast time is moving. I'm exhausted this week, we have company (MIL and GMIL) and it's been busy here. Valerie is teething I think. She gnaws on her hands or mine constantly.

Last night I dropped her on the floor. I was sitting in my chair and nodded off. She pushed off of me with her feet and ended up going over backwards somehow and landing on her head/back on the floor. I still feel like such an @ss. I slept very poorly because I was worried about her. She landed on a carpeted floor from the height of my lap, but I couldn't help worrying just the same. The screaming was terrific. She wouldn't nurse right away either, she was screaming too hard. I held her and walked with her and sang to her and she stopped screaming, then after a few minutes she seemed OK, sitting on the floor while her sister made funny faces and sounds to get her to laugh. She doesn't have any bruises or anything and seems perfect today but I keep my eye on her watching for anything unusual

I hope everyone else is doing well and has not had any baby mishaps. There is nothing like the feeling that your baby might be seriously hurt and you're the cause of it. :

PajamaMama: These things happen, I'm sure she's fine. Romi falls on her face so many times a day, all I do is comfort her... But I've been rolling my eyes at her a few times, she's just so clumsy!

Queen: Welcome to the terrible 3's!! Liam is a hellion too, I'm so grateful for daycare. I feel like i don't know how to parent him anymore. When he hurts his sister yet again, when he throws his milk on the ground on purpose, when he slaps, kicks, yells in my face... It's trying to say the least. Combine that with a baby that doesn't want to sleep, and trust me, waking up 3 times is nothing. Try 6-7 times, yep Romi's there too. It makes for a grumpy mama. And my house is a mess too, I don't cook anymore, or when I do, it's huge accomplishment for me and I feel as if dh should be kissing my feet for it, but he's ignorant and just says thanks I have no energy to neaten up, when romi sleeps, all I want to do is R.E.L.A.X.

As for diapers: I know. You got sucked into the GM craze : Stay away from DS!!! Although I'm at the top of the crankypants waitlist now... Anyday!! And I bought 5 bamboo prefolds, covers (Bummis is in Montreal and they have 50% seconds on their covers, woo-hoo! Oh if anyone wants some, I'm going there this weekend again, oops am I enabling?), a GM, and an Oh Naturel fitted this week alone. So I should just offer and keep my big mouth shut.
