hi all! and hi to the lurkers coming out of hiding too!
s to firemomma and Laura and Amy and everyone else who is dealing with *stuff*, however big or small..
I've been having an internet-break I suppose...been leveling my warlock on World of Warcraft still
: My dh bought another computer and got a seperate WoW account, so we can play together. We are uber-dorks now
Halloween sucked so badly--because the town I live in decided to start it at FIVE, when it's not even dark yet, and then nobody had their porchlights on because they were all at CHURCHES celebrating "fall festivals" and such... :need a smilie for "appalled at the paranoia": I don't want to go to a church anyway, and certainly not so my kids can get free candy along with "Jesus loves me" bracelets, etc etc. We tried to go to the mall, but by the time we got there (barely 7pm) all the stores were like "we're outta candy! sorry!" We bought the kids dippin dots and a video game and went home.
: We did look cool
Claire went to her 1st dr. appt since she was a week old the other day. Guess I don't know how to measure. She's 25 1/4 inches, not 27 like I was thinking. The nurse and I did it like 3 times to be sure!
She's also 14lbs 8oz, which seemed pretty petite to me, so I was anticipating a lecture. But no, doc said she's 50th percentile for height and weight. She sure seems tiny to me tho!
He also didn't even bring up shots until I reminded him that we aren't doing them, and he just said "oh yeah, I know!"
So he's a cool doc I guess.
TMI-ish: I got whalloped with the AF from HELL plus a nasty cold last week, and I am still recovering--from both
I remember the first 4 AFs I had after Lili was born were two-week long, two-months-apart, crampy, HORRIBLE ordeals (and each accompanied by a cold) for me, and I was thinking I'd gotten off without that happening this time since I'd already had 2 pretty average AFs already. But maybe not, sigh..
Claire also pulled up to standing the other day, using the rungs of the dining chair! She kinda bumped her head on the seat tho, so wasn't much interested in trying again. She's scooting forward on all fours now--it's like she hasn't mastered using each leg seperately yet, yk?
Talking, well.....she says MAMAMMA when she's mad about something, and she'll say hey/hi in the mornings...her new thing is this screechy whine that I swear is going to make me smash my head into the wall
She just came up with it this morning as an objection to her diaper beign wet..but apparently she's decided it's just a fun sound to use ALL the time. Thank goodness she's napping right now...
Still no teeth, no solids other than tastes/things she can gum on.
