I am always late with this! It's so hard to keep up.

Little man is dying to crawl.

Here are some recent pictures of him.

Fun in the sand.

Daddy's clone

He found his eleventh finger. And hasn't let go since! LOL

MyBoyAramis - OMGosh he is too cute!!!! Love th 11ht finger thing lol!
post #423 of 469
Awww, Aramis is a sweety! The backwards crawling is just the start, he will be crawling in no time! Cherish the lack of mobility while you can!
post #424 of 469
LOL! Thanks. He is just dying to move. I'm anxious and sad at the same time.

Aramis-ack! adorable.

Lindsay- I just clicked on the Roisin pic in your siggy and she is SUCH a pretty baby.


Thanks for all the milky vibes, gals...must have worked because today at work I pumped a total of 13 oz. Yay me!!!

Now if we can just make it on the groceries we have until payday, I will be a happy camper! (How is it that I bust my A$$ working and am still broke at the end of every month?!?!?! Oh well, c'est la vie.)

Happy Thurs!

Thanks for all the responses on the sippy cups....I am off to research those you all suggested. I need to find one that she can use....all the ones I have bought she hasn't been successful getting anything out of yet.

SweetTexasgal - Good luck! A soft spout that they can bite to get water out is usually easier than a hard spout they have to suck on.

Liam seemed to do everything all at the same time, so she may just decide shortly that she will crawl and stand I can't keep him down now that he's learned how, he gets into everything!

Oh, and I just have to say how much I hate AF

WHY does she choose to show up a week ahead of schedule, and before DH gets home at that?
post #431 of 469
SweetTexasgal - We bought Aramis the Nuby Soft Spout sippy cups. Love 'em.

Katie - I am so not looking forward to getting AF.
I've been AF free for 17 months. Everyone is telling me to go get checked out. They don't seem to believe me that this is what happens when you EBF. They also think I am pregnant again. lol

Katie: Congrats to Andrew! That is great. One stop closer to the three of you reuniting…right? I’m sorry about the money…it is the root of all evil, I swear. Hopefully things will be good when you get to AZ and this is only a temporary thing. Sorry about AF…I had a close call with that last week, but it turned out my gyno was just a little aggressive when he did my pap. I was thankful! AF does suck…feel better!

MyBoyAramis: on the 11th finger…I hear ya! DS had really bad diarrhea last week and the whole fascination with that “little guy” turned into a really messy problem if YKWIM?! Oh, boys…they never really stop holding onto that thing, do they?!

Lindsay: Don’t hold your breath waiting for the crawling…some of them never do it! I swore DS would never crawl and was just going to go from sitting to running, but being at daycare made him crawl because they discourage him from pulling up…that’s a whole convo all in itself though. Good luck getting used to the mobility adjustment…it is a BIG one!!

jbirdbrain: on the $$ issue…I do the same thing every month. It is so frustrating. DH and I give ourselves the same allowances per paycheck for our “own” expenses and it is gone within a day or two every paycheck. The grocery money is ALWAYS gone within a blink too…I don’t care where I shop there is always some reason that it is all spent in two seconds. Ugh. Sorry mama.

So I just pigged out on sushi…so good, but I ate way too much. Waiting for DH to get home from Dallas…he should be home by 11 and I am hoping so because I am exhausted.

DS is so clingy today. In his 9 ½ months I have never even used the phrase “touched out” but I think today was the first time I really felt that way. He is just too heavy to be held all the time. I wish his darn tooth would come through already. I see the giant white spot, I can feel it under the skin, but nothing…this has been going on for nearly a week. What gives?! I will say though, whoever thought up the idea of cutting up fruit, freezing it, and selling it in the grocery store that way deserves a Nobel prize. I kept sticking pieces of fruit in the food holder things I got from One Step Ahead and letting him gnaw on them. He loved it because his hands didn’t get cold and I loved it because he stopped crying AND he wasn’t all sticky when he was done with his peaches!! Nice!

mrsb422 - Gosh, I can't even get the diaper off without his hands already going down there. I get ya on the poopy dipes. I usually have to hold his hands along with his legs. But another thing my son does that freaks me out is that he yanks that thing so damn hard. I say 'Ow!' and he just giggles.
post #434 of 469
AF - She came back at exactly 15 months for me, right before Liam turned 6 months. I had one fertile cycle and was then anovulatory last month so she was a no show. I knew for certain that I ovulated this month according to charting, and I ovulated a little earlier than usual, so it was just a waiting game. However, I am happy that charting is proving to be so accurate for me. Its normal to go up to two years and even beyond without, I wish I was that lucky

Its funny, Aramis looks like he wants to fly, not crawl. Let me reiterate what someone else said, we have a cute bunch of babies!

Welcome Sara. I love your dd's hair.

mrsb, I'm sorry for your loss.

Aili is doing well, but I think there is another tooth on the way. She's been more drooly than usual and a little clingy. Oh, btw, I am hating solid foods . . . Prepare for more poop-talk from me (I'm always talking about poop; how long will it take before poop isn't constantly on my mind?) . . . Aili was a once sometimes twice a day pooper and 1 out of 4 days was Poo-splosion, no I take that back, I have only just discovered what a "poo-splosion" truly is. Now, since starting solids, she is going every 3-4 days and its monstrous. There was one earlier this week that was literally flowing out of the top of her diaper like a volcano! There is no containing her feces.

All right, so that you don't all just think that my girl is only full of s**t, let me tell you about the stuff.

Daddy likes to play tickle games after dinner here.
She hasn't quite figured out this "reading thing" yet . . . She did this to herself.
I also took her outside for some pics a few days ago . . . it has been gorgeous around here! She was loving pulling the grass out of the ground. I thought that she was going to try to eat it and of course, I was right. She would move the blade of grass toward her mouth and as soon as the tip touched her face, she would shake her head, make a scrunched up face and coughing sound and then start smiling. I didn't catch any pics of it, but it was funny.

Until we meet again, have a good weekend and for those of us packing/moving, good luck with all of that.

Sabo - OMG that video is precious! She has the best laugh! I love how all of a sudden babies get so ticklish.
post #439 of 469
Oh I just love all the babies. The videos are so cute. I love backward crawling and baby giggles. Ruby is too darling, I love that hairdo. Cian is so cute too with that hair.

Dahlia is CRAWLING!!! Well it is more like swimming across the floor but she is moving forward after things. It is a whole new ballgame now with tiny little playmobil pieces and legos oh my!!!

I have to break out the high chair (needs a major cleaning) because I know Dahlia will love being up so high and exploring some chunky food textures. Looks like I have my weekend project.

Dahlia is grunt/screaming (new frustration sound) so gotta run!

OMG we have the cutest babies ever! I have some sweet photos if I ever get around to uploading them...

My neighbors have all mown the grass but us. I hate to see the violets go and dp hasn't been around to do it this week.

Linus still has no teeth and I will hate to see the gummy smile go also. He is sleeping much better, taking naps and at night. He is getting nice long stretches in too. Both naps are over an hour which is incredible progress. He also has at least 1 two hour stretch at night which helps me immensely.

I have a pair of denim shorts that all my kiddos have worn that he is in today. My 5 and 2 yo both wore them last summer (one early, the other late). I love things like that.

I found some Burt's Bees sunscreen locally but I am planning on getting some california baby when I get out of town next.

I am counting on the usual for my cycles - when baby turns 15 months they will return. I sure hope it doesn't happen any sooner.

You ladies have fun on the co-op boards w/o me. Co-op is truly a 4 letter word in this house still. I didn't really overspend but it all came through in the same month.

I hope the moves are all smooth sailing and wish you happy reuniting Katie.
