APRIL 2007 Mamas - It's February Already? - Page 36

post #701 of 717
Wow I so didn't expect to be the first one who posted today. Where is everyone? Enjoying your leapday?

Desmond slept from 11pm till 3am last night, Yay! Of course I was awake the whole time, but hopefully he'll keep up the tend. Nothing else going on here, my Mom is coming up tomorrow and we need to clean some tonight (joy). Otherwise we're eating lunch now.

If by enjoying you mean pulling out my hair :

Ion won't stop whining, won't nurse but won't let me pump. I am so not loving my full-figured self today, especially since only 2 shirts fit. The house is getting me down but there's a crapton of snow outside, which will have to be shovelled. Kam works this weekend. The house is a mess and I have no desire to clean. We still just have enough $$ to get by.
Can anyone guess that AF is whopping my butt for all the 20 times I didn't have her visit.

I did figure out a little trick to help with biting. It only works on a really full boob though. When he opens wide and I just *know* he's going to bite, I spray as much as I can at the back of his throat so he has to start swallowing before I put my nipple in.

My poor SIL's got mastitis AND candida. She had to go to the ER last night. Did I mention she has a fractured arm too? I feel terrible for being mopey when she has all this stuff going on.

sorry for the af woes. That first one can be hard.

I have 2 April birthdays to celebrate. E wants a "Super Why" birthday party and so I thought an "ABC" theme would be fun for Sophia. Now off to figure that out.


Sophia stood alone for 10 seconds twice last night!

I never have a full boob anymore. There is no squirting happening, either, but at least I don't need the nursing pads anymore.

Do you have any suggestions for hair pulling? That's how Seamus wakes me up at 4 a.m.:

I'm planning to get mine cut off really short again, maybe this weekend maybe next. Boy Wonder loves to pull hair and he gets mine so tangled it isn't funny. I am hoping with less hair it will be less interest to him. If I am going to cut it, it needs to be soon though, since it needs to be shoulder length again by October for India.

Oh pictures of Desmond and his new car seat are up at my blog, I am too lazy to repost them, so anyone who's interested can see them there.

And I read a post on a message board by a friend as was reminded how different her parenting style is from me and it made me sad. She's planning on stopping nursing her baby when she gets teeth (poor baby girl) and she's already started cereal with her at 3 months . I just shake my head and comment on it to DH who doesn't get it either.

My hair is only five inches long on top at the moment. It doesn't get tangled, but it does hurt!

I have a friend who's preggie and already planning to cio. I just hope she changes her mind when the baby is born.

I know! I had the neighbor kids here last night (4 and 7) and man was it noisy!!!! I was so glad for the peace and quiet once they were gone and mine were asleep.

On a funny note, I was just nursing sweet Scarlet and she popped off, i thought she was just looking around, as usual. However, she's sound asleep with her mouth open and arm hanging down.

Oh, s: to you and your sister-in-law! Poor girls! Sit back both of you and pour a glass of wine- I hope that she gets better soon and your perspective changes tomorrow! Af is so nasty that way!

Ok girl, I just want to know what you are doing when your sweet boy is sleeping!? You've said that before when he's slept longer than usual- and you an insomniac? When Eva sleeps through you can be I'm sleeping too!
Cute pics, btw, he is so adorable!

Oh man-that's exactly what I was thinking tonight when if felt like I had 7 kids- I was like, man, what will I do!? (not with 7 hehe, just more than 2) My evening was testing...sometimes it just gets out of control! Eva's taken to 'yelling'. Ok, I hear you. Sorry it took 2 seconds longer than usual. geesh. I feel like I live in a madhouse!

Not much happening here. Same old. I'm jealous of you ladies with sleeping babies... Aaaah, sleep.

Romi has been screaming as well if I don't respond immediately. She's so clingy as well, she just follows me everywhere and won't let me do anything without being in my arms. And even in my arms she just grabs everything and makes housechores nearly impossible. Gah, I'm just a complainer today
Maybe I'm about to get af as well? I'm happy she hasn't showed up yet, but I have a feeling it'll be soon...

Oh, I went to drop off liam at daycare yesterday and one of the ladies that will have romi next month was asking me about her and asked me about bottles and stuff. She looked shocked when I told her Romi never had a bottle and she'll be going on milk and not formula. I told her I didn't breastfeed for a year to then give my baby a bottle filled with formula :

Hanno: hope you feel better and hugs to you SIL. Thrush sucks. And mastitis is the worst. Luckily the latter usually doesn't last too long...

Funny about feeding 3 months old and CIO. I was looking at old pictures of me and my parents, who were relatively hippy-ish, had me in my crib with a bottle of formula propped on pillows. At only 4 weeks old. Then I see a picture of me strapped to some weird seating contraption with a bowl of infant cereal next to me and my face covered with the stuff. At 6 weeks old. And they had these wooden playpens everywhere. My sister and I are outside in these wooden jails. Ugh.

i haven't been getting sleep either--for weeks, it seems. even when zenon does sleep, i'm having so much trouble sleeping. now he is sick and waking all.the.time. :
sorry about the clinginess--that is so hard. kaylo was like that and it was so draining/frustrating!
that stinks about the interaction you had with your daycare person--i guess as a daycare provider, she probably sees no kids that go bottle-free..

it was just what was told to them...my mom bf until we were 6 months but she didn't know anyone else that did that! and she never co-slept and fed us solids early too--but she was told to by our pedi and even her friends.
