Sorry about the crappy doc visit. We reaaly love ours. Don't be too snippy at him for signing a waiver about vac's. It's the trial lawyers' faults for that.


Sophia says, mama, hi and bye. She waves, but can't pattycake/clap. She doesn't say dada. She just looks at him and growls.

Did anyone see this on TAO:

Due to issues we have been having with our server load and high traffic, we need to close or remove all threads that encourage mass posting. We have pinpointed that threads with very large numbers of posts/pages are partly or entirely responsible for the issues we are experiencing. Exactly what they are causing has not been determined but they cause a table corruptions in the database and most often that necessitates closing the forum to be able to repair the post and thread tables. Because our database is so large, this take at least an hour and affects other things on Mothering.com due to the need to close the database server to complete the repair. This results in extended issues such as emails received from concerned members who cannot access the forum during the closure, multi-Q&S threads about the server problems creating posting issues, and the multitude of duplicate posts that appear across the forums as a result of the server burps and which must then be removed by the moderators.

The suspension of mass posting threads includes all threads that are intended to boost post counts and those that are aimed at creating extremely high posting to a single thread. All such threads will be closed or moved to the Games forum, depending on the thread topic/focus. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

I don't think that targets us, does it?? I mean there are crazy threads on MDC that are hundreds of pages long... I think those are the ones that'll be removed, no?

Noah has 0 words.

We call him -Nonan the bar(baby)an- AKA Conan the Barbarian. And hardly has the coordination to pinch pieces of food and eat it. BUT he is really big.

Superbaby has been focusing all his energy on speed! My theory is that all babies focus on a certain aspect of development, sometimes at the expense of other areas. Superbaby and Noah are 2 cases in point. Small, but super-developed mover/talker...and BIG, but slow Noah. What do you think?

Totally!! Liam was tiny and was everywhere (he still is). Very advanced physically, yet late in talking.

I haven't had a chance to read through the posts, but just wanted to share:

Micah is currently sleeping next to me while I peruse the internet (namely MDC and Etsy -- thanks doudat )...His eyes are darting back and forth, he is holding his hand up in front of him and moving his fingers (intricately, like he is doing something like manipulating something small), and then smiling and laughing....It is too cute! I wish I had the video camera here! Ah....calm sleep now....maybe I should sleep, too....but that wouldn't be any fun
post #87 of 712
Gee, I hope they don't close our thread. That would be awful. I think you're right though, doudat...I think they'd go for the threads with hundreds of pages, not us. : Oh yeah, I forgot about the site that serenitii set up a while back. I haven't logged in there in a very long time. Oops! If you're lurking, how are you, serenitii? Hadn't seen you around

I forgot to post a pic of my lovely earrings that I got from maximom in the exchange:

pretty danglies

They have become my favorites and I even wear green all the time on purpose just so I can wear those earrings.

shydaisi - that's cute about about Micah dreaming. Wouldn't you just love to know what was going on in his little head?

Great! They were made by a gal I know from Portland, OR.

Scarlet has been having some poopy problems since yesterday. Although I think the green ones today are from the pickle she was eating last night.

Our power was down from high winds so we went out to dinner and the pickle kept her happy. And now I know why we don't ever go out. I had Max glued to one side and Scarlet on the other when she got sick of the high chair. Makes it difficult to actually eat.

Poor little gal, she's pooping again. And I have guests coming for dinner tonight! Need to clean the house, make lasagna and bake a cake.

Guess I should go, see y'all later.

Can you tell I am POed?!?!

Someone stole my wallet and $200! I took the kids to Home Depot for their Kids Workshop. And bought something, then went to the car, checked for my wallet. It was gone. We looked through everything, went back in, talked to the manager, cashier-nothing! So I went home, looked through car again. Phone rang-it was a lady saying she found my wallet and was on her way over. YEA! But, when she got here, there was no cash. I am SO bummed! That was all of our cash until DH gets his student loans in 2 weeks. Luckily I got my WIC checks yesterday. So the kids won't starve. The lady who brought it to me said she found it in the parking lot and maybe someone stole the $ and threw it on the ground. I called my bank and canceled my CC. SO bummed.

I just can't understand how people can do stuff like that. I mean-can you imagine feeling so ENTITLED?!? I just have to settle on thinking that maybe they have kids that are hungrier than ours, either that or they just needed to buy a bigger TV. Who knows. -sigh-

Thanks for listening to my rant. I feel better. I think I will go out and plant some bulbs while the kids sleep. It is actually around 50 here today-unheard of for Jan. We haven't had our 2-3 wks of 20-30 below 0 yet.

I need some sun-therapy!

That sucks. I honestly don't know how someone could do that.

I'm so sorry that happened to you - I would be devistated!
post #95 of 712
oh no! That's awful, montanamama! I hope that $200 comes back to you somehow down the road...like an unexpected gift or money you didn't know you had coming to you or something.
post #96 of 712
whoa, 200$? I'm sick to my stomach for you. That's terrible!!
Like Kewpie said, hopefully it'll come back around to you... Did they also take your cc and debit cards?
post #97 of 712
Ok, I've been looking at these and laughing out loud, so have a hoot people:

Goodmorning!

We are going to the zoo today. I'm torn between knowing how much Johnny loves animals and wanting to take him and thinking about how frustrated he will be not being able to crawl everywhere - I think it should be fun though!

My DH finds out tomorrow morning if he gets a job working 7 days a week from 6pm - 6am. I have no idea how we can manage that schedule - but we really need him to be working again. I just can't stop hoping he doesn't get the job though, is that horrible?
