Ugh, that's me! Though I've been losing hair like this off and on for SIX years!
My hair is less than half as thick as it used to be. There was a time when my scalp was never visible - and now it's more and more obvious by the day. Handfuls in the shower, and hairs everywhere else, too. In theory this just makes up for all the hair your body held onto while pg, but I lose during pgcy, too.

Don't take my word for it, but peanut oil doesn't contain peanut proteins, which is what causes allergic reactions. From what I've heard, things like CFA are okay for peanut allergic folks - but again, don't take my word for it!
I can't believe it's December! I can't believe my baby is more than 2 months old! He seems SO big now and is so alert and interactive and sweet and cuddly and... ah, yes, I'm sure you know the list of wonderful baby traits!
I wish he could just stay this age forever!
He seems so much bigger than other babies his age, though. There was a baby two days younger (9/29) at the same place we were today, though you could've told me he was 6 weeks old and I'd have believed it. It's almost like he's more alert than these babies - not big, persay, but more mature, maybe? It does mean he doesn't seem much like a newborn at all anymore!
We spent the day on Galveston Island with the family doing a couple of big events. Only problem was trying to find a good place to get Judah latched on where I wasn't totally flashing when he'd pull off! With an overactive letdown he's always gulping fast and then gasping for air... So we're on and off and on and off. I know when he's a bit bigger it'll be easier, and I actually like NIP. But that part of the day was a bit stressful! Otherwise he did really well, though. And the big boys had a wonderful time! Now I'm totally zonked though...
