APRIL 2007 Mamas - It's February Already? - Page 6

post #101 of 717
When Seamus was about six months old, I took him for a walk in his stroller and forgot to buckle him. I stopped at the corner and he slid out and hit the ground. It was awful! I was so sick about it I called dh sobbing that I was the worst mother in history and shouldn't be allowed to be home alone with my children. I was too embarrassed to tell anyone.

I took him to the doctor, and he was fine, but it still makes me a little teary. I almost always use the Ergo now. He's much happier in it, too-- as long as I remember to buckle it!

Poor Scout and Seamus, although I must admit your post cracked me up!!
Kewpie: it reminds me, when liam was a baby the only way I could put him down for a nap was to walk around the block with him in the stroller. I remember freaking out everytime something would threaten to wake him up, firetrucks, loud kids, honking cars... I'd practically run with the stroller just to avoid the noise!

Liam pooped in the potty tonight, the first time EVER!!! He's fine with pee, but he'd hold in the poop for a few days then cry and hide to poop in his pant It had been 4 poopless days tonight and he was complaining that he was in pain, and I got him (ok, after 30 minutes of encouragement) to finally do it in the potty!! Hurray!!! Such small sweet victories... :

love the stroller stories! so cute- sorry, I'm sure you all don't think they're that funny, but I can just imagine them!

You know, for all those babies who sleep better in disposables, Evangeline seems to sleep better in cloth. At least, the nights when she does better at night coincidentally she is in cloth.

I think she's getting better. Still a cough though. Kris, I forgot to mention, I finally started shooting bm up her nose.(with a dropper) Or maybe I did mention that. I think it's working.

Tonight Seamus is afraid of the bath for the first time. He's always loved it!

This is so not going to work for me.

so i have no money but i want to ask about thirsties covers and fitteds? mostly the covers, tell me about them if anyone has tried them, i love my nikkys but they are to small and i need a few new ones and they are pretty colors!
post #108 of 717
OH- I wanted to ask, has anyone introduced a sippy yet? Evangeline has been drinking out of a glass, but I just ordered a SIGG and a kleen kanteen. (one for Axel).
And doudat- I might be interested in that pink cover.

I had to take castor oil to get labor started, and although it worked really well, I don't think I could ever do it again. Luckily, I'm done poppin out the babes. I'm still hesitant about the cod liver oil, though.
No, no, nothing like castor oil. He was probably 12 months when I started giving to him and I don't recall that reaction to it. It is one of those things we should probably all be taking/eating, my Nordic ancestors ate lots of fish!

I bought Scarlet her own sippy to chew on, since she always wants to take Max's. Although the other day, she did get a hold of Max's sippy of milk and tried a few sips - she liked it, too. But the couple of times I did put water in it, she was surprised it was there, so she doesn't seem quite ready yet. She does like to carry hers around still.

I feel like I must be living in a cave. Everyone I know is saying, "I shouldn't eat wheat because of my blood type," or "based on my ancestry, I need a lot of vitamin D in my diet."

Is there a book about this?

zenon doesn't seem to like sippys. we have a kleen kanteen and there aren't handles so he doesn't like that. he does like drinking out of cups though.

yes... Eating 4 Your Blood Type. what blood type are you? i'm O+ and should be eating mainly meat! and i've been a vegetarian for 10 years! supposedly, if i started eating mostly meat i'd see a lot of health improvements and weightloss too! i wish i was an A b/c it's supposed to eat how i eat now! : (i'm half joking...i really can't remember what all the types are supposed to eat, but there is one that is more of a mediteranian (sp??) diet)

We just got a sigg and handles and I think the top is too complicated, I can't even figure it out half the time. He likes it a lot and loves to shake it around and get little bit of water in his mouth here and there but it sure isn't providing any real independent hydration. He still uses a regular glass with help for actual drinking.

It'll make for a good story when Seamus is an adult. But I know how awful it is when that stuff happens. I'm sure everyone here has heard me tell this story before, but when Scout was 6 weeks old, she was sleeping on my chest in the recliner and somehow manage to roll off into the floor. I woke up as she was falling off the arm of the chair. I felt sooooo awful. But she was not hurt....landed on thick padded carpet. I cried more than she did. But still, I was soooo embarrassed and threatened DH with his life if he told anyone about it. We joke about it and have told some of our friends about now, but back when it first happened, it was a very touchy subject for me.

Our stroller is sitting in the front hallway because I was too lazy to put it back in the garage yesterday and now Scout's favorite activity is climbing all over it. Maybe having it in the house will warm her up to it?

re: sippy cups - Scout has manage to suck a little bit of water out of a sippy a couple times, but she just makes a face and lets the water run out of her mouth. She just chews on the spout the rest of the time.

Yay, Liam for pooping in the potty!!

Speaking of....I am a failure at EC'ing. (as well as CD'ing LOL) Scout pooped in the potty all the time from about 3 months to 6 months and then her poops got a lot more unpredictable, but I was still catching some. Now, we are catching NO poops at all because she HATES sitting on the potty. :
post #118 of 717
I'm excited for Liam! Claire will tell me if she has to pee, but not dh. She also is in to removing her diaper. She pooped on the floor this weekend. Yuck. I'm trying to convince her to poop on the potty.


Sophia will drink out of a regular cup when I hold it up to her. She's used a nubby sippy cup, but can't figure out a regular sippy.

our unbelievable cute tiny glass potty with the puppy on it was most recently used to catch my brother in law's vomit

ugh, long night. Poor Scarlet was so feverish and in pain from teething, she hardly slept, or at least I hardly slept, as she was up at her usual time this morning. I finally put a cool washcloth on her head and back (she did NOT like) and it cooled her down enough to have her sleep without waking to cry every fifteen minutes. That was about 5am...

Today she has runny eyes and runny nose and will probably want to be held most of the day. And she hates having her nose wiped, poor little dear.
