May 2007 Mamas ~ It's November! - Page 8

post #141 of 465
We have the saucer that bounces. Maggie loves it. She has been in it just shy of two months. Maggie was rolling at birth and was holding up her head from birth also. We used it because it was the only place I could set her down at because of her reflux. At some point I had to shower.

The Maggsters is sick along with Liam. Not sure if its teething or a virus but she has thrown the reflux for a loop. I am so sick of vomit, spit up, puke. She started wheezing this morning so I had to take her in. She is now on the nebulizer. Of course the doctor office is full of sick kids which is not good. Liam is still not up to par from his surgery. He is having eating issues well not eating issues. Our peds is giving him two weeks to gain weight or else he is getting a feeding tube. He has lost since 9/18 7 pounds and 4 pounds in the last month. SIGH. I do not know what to do. I really hate this celiac's disease. Hopefully with Maggie we will not have these same issues since we found out so early in life.

We have a Jolly jumper and an Exersaucer, but don't use either for long periods of time. The Jolly Jumper is never more than 10-15 minutes every couple of days, the Exersaucer I put her in every morning for about 20 minutes so I can eat breakfast and check my email and sometimes get some work done.

Ok, a funny story for ECing.... on occassion I put Kayleigh down for a nap without a diaper on. She doesn't pee in her sleep, she pees when she wakes up, so I know that we have to put a diaper under her when she gets up of put a diaper on her. Yesterday I put her down for a nap with no diaper and DH was home so he went to get her when she woke up. I had forgotten to tell him that she was diaperless and after a few minutes I hear from the kitchen "Oh maaaaaaaaan" heehee, she peed down his shirt.

3 of 4 of my boys peed all over dh for their first diaper change ever. The only reason the oldest did not is because dh was in desert storm and was not there for his birth.

The other AM I was sitting on the couch in my nightgown and boxer shorts w/Kiran and Rowan. I heard K poop but it didn't sound like much, and we were having such a nice moment I didn't want to get up yet. A few minutes later when I finally checked her, there was a big puddle of poop on the couch between my legs, and it was running up my leg into my shorts. omg one of the grossest things that ever happened to me!

. . . and then I started eating chunks of thawed placenta yesterday . . .

Okay, this is totally the kind of nerdy thing my dad would point out, but that was post #144 in this thread, which numerically is one GROSS. (where is that loser symbol?)

lol (And I never say that unless I really do laugh) I love it! I am a loser too.

Wow, cool! And definitely gross.

My dogs get to eat Henry poop out of a potty almost every day. Yummo! (ETA: not on purpose. Henry wakes me, he poops on the potty in the bedroom, I get up and go to the bathroom, by the time I come back in the bedroom the dogs have gotten the potty cleaned out.)

I gave Henry potato today. I was thinking squash, but I was boiling some potatoes anyway so I went with those. He was not excited about them.

He's getting up on his feet now. He puts his hands on stuff just a few inches off the ground, like our heater thingies (low radiators along the bottom of the wall - can you tell I'm from Florida!?) and then stands up and tries to reach his hands up to higher stuff!

He has this weird thing with his right hand/arm. He moves it really fast up and down. Like banging, only he ends up banging himself or whomever is holding him. I'm sure it's normal, but it's weird to me that he only does it with his right arm. If a chiropractor was free, I probably would take him. I try to massage his back/shoulders to keep him loose. LOL

Sometimes I end up massaging his feet and legs while I'm nursing him to get him to relax and fall asleep. I remember having to do that to Delia too, when it was like her body just wouldn't calm down because it wanted to keep moving. Delia is still nonstop energy - at least when Henry is bigger hopefully they will entertain each other!

Ok I know a few you are in the Market for FBs...I just put one up on the TP (and some Bumware too) .... just shamelessly putting that out there I am trying to raise funds for some Haute Cloth on the TP.....

In other news... I am getting really nervous/excited/nauseous/elated about my troupe's performances this weekend...

On one hand I am so happy to be with my friends getting all costumed up and dancing and raising money for a great cause... just the whole spectacle is amazing, kwim?

On the other hand, I am freaking out like "what am I thinking?" ... I barely even go out at night anymore... where am I going to get the energy for 2 nights of performace and entertaining out of town guests and mothering.....

I am sort of a mess TBH! IF I could just RELAX a bit more, I'll have such a great weekend.

We have avoided buying lots of plastic stuff for Iris...some nice wooden rattles and a few carefully chosen M toys. But yesterday I was at the home of an acquaintance with a bunch of other moms and babes, and Iris was so excited when someone put her in this rainforest jumperoo-thingy while I was using the bathroom. She looked so happy and loooooved jumping (she often tries to jump when we are holding her in our laps). She was reaching for the little parrot and chewing on the little butterfly and I couldn't bear to tear her away from it. She entertained herself for a good half hour.

So, I guess what I want to know is:
1. Do you/have you used something like this with your DC?
2. Is it actually GOOD for babies to be in these things, or is it too much
stimulation, too much for their hips, etc.?
3. Am I depriving her of her own independence/freedom of movement even though she seemed SO happy in this thing?

I guess what it comes down to is that part of me wants to get it, because she seemed to love it so much. The other part of me doesn't want to buy all that plastic and thinks it is too stimulating/constraining. Any ideas or advice?
We hae a Rainforest Jumperoo and Julianne loves it...I am aware of the risks, but there are risks inoled with everything we do. Most of the time she plays on the floor, but I am not going to deprive her of an activity that she cleary enjoys! Plus it entertains her for a little while so I can atleast take a shower!!

Krystal, that's great! I hope that helps your DH with his feelings that she wants only you. We're still stuck on Hi and Mama here, but she's staying with DH during the day and some evenings when I have to go out without freaking out so much, so we're making progress.

I can't believe Henry is pulling up already!

My dogs looooove poop.

I'm sad about the Gerber Diaperwipes. Do you know of any other bird's eye wipes?



Aww mickey is cute right now, I need to go cuddle him.

Good luck! I wish I could come, I LOVE belly dancing! I tried it for a while, but I'm just not a dancer.

I just found a really nice almost new carrier that retails around $80 for $19 at a second hand store...I love that place.

At his last WBV he was 14 or 15 lbs. I don't want to get any smalls, because he will just outgrow them very fast.

This week has been crazy busy and stressful.... Emeth decided that he would like to master sitting and pulling up this week (he mastered crawling last week or the week before... can't remember). I had to put his crib matress down because he was standing there at the railing and I could just see him falling over it.

Some bad stuff with the DH went down this week also, so i am a bit out of sorts. Alana, I do have your stuff for the swap... but I haven't mailed it. I'm really sorry. I'll try to get out to do that tomorrow.

Well, Kiran seems pretty normal so far, but our 3 yo plays catch with her imaginary friends.

She's also already psychically picking up what Kiran wants. I've begun taking her seriously whenever she says, "I think Kiran wants _________." It's almost always right.
