Wow Anglyn, that's quite the ordeal!!! I can just imagine how horrible it must've been, not being able to nurse! I think I would've cracked... Poor little thing. At least he's doing well now!

Last time we had sex it took me 3 days to get up the energy to deal with effort. Which is really too bad because my sex drive is actually back at this point in time, but the effort that has to be put in to do anything kills my mood 90% of the time.
i feel that (but dh definitely doesn't)

Funny, Evangeline sure has been clingy and whiney too. She was nursing very frequently today- and still is being very picky when eating table foods. I wonder what's up. She has a diaper rash, and runny poop...sorry! So you think it's more teeth too? I wonder if I should have a feel.

I'm pissed off at my dh tonight- he's so unhelpful and not sympathetic- I was packing my carry-on bag which was too small and he's all 'you had all day' and jerky. Sometimes I want to slug him. Do I help him when he's in a fuzzle? You bet! At least a 'is there anything I can do?' would be nice. : I did drive all the way to Toronto (2 hrs) today and back with the kids to pick up my passport by myself...and then packing and cleaning the house...
Anyway...I should go upstairs. Our batteries are low b/c our battery charger is broken...so I should save the power.

Well I think I've met my posting quota tonight! I'll try to check in from the big u.s. of a, but I might be busy! goodnight everyone!

eta- also, I just wanted to share with some sympathetic ears, I can't stop thinking about how much I'm going to miss Axel- I feel like I'm going to be gone forever- and he'll be different, or ruined from his mean grandma (she's not that bad, she just says things I would never say). Oh! dear! my poor boy, without his mommy...I know, he'll be fine, and so will I, but I just feel really emotional about it, and really don't want to leave him...I'm going to miss being with his cute little voice, and his sweet curls, and his crazy antics.... sob!
stinks about your dh : how annoying!
don't worry about axel! it will be ok! and he will have good guy time with your dh...don't worry!

Abba takes about 5-6 steps right now.
i feel for ya. we have some craziness going on with buying this house...we can possibly buy adjacent land from someone else but it's been an ordeal with the banks and we don't really know what to do first (plus we have to factor in lead abatement which we still don't know if we have to pay for or not...) not fun. i hope you condo sells soon for ya!

The nothing to eat or drink after midnight was torture, he still nurses a lot so from one thirty until four thirty he cried and I walked and rocked and cried, he didn't understand why he coudlnt nurse. I never want to go through that again. We each got two hours sleep last night. After the surger, he drained both breasts then we went to waffle house and he ate eggs, grits, toast, bacon, waffles and hashbrowns! Then he crashed on the way home!

He isn't walking yet either, but he has some increased tone in his lower body that isn't helping matters. Plus the fluid on the ears probally didn't help either. Poor little guy.
i'm so glad that is done for you!!! sounds like a lot to go through. at least you can see vast improvement and know it was worth it!

(((Troy))) - hope you feel better after your tubes

Dh and I will be married 10 years on June. We must be the old ones for the group. I wanted to go on a quick trip somewhere, but we are gone 2 other weekends in June and noone wants to watch all 5 so I'm not sure what we'll do.

Sophia is a walker. She still crawls especially if you try to stand her up and get her to walk. She loves carrying stuff. Correction: she loves carrying her sisters' stuff. Then she cries if they take it away so she most likely gets it until she's bored and moves on. She seems to be doing well. She likes to eat. I got home late last night and was eating supper. She wanted on my lap and ate half of the casserole. DH swears she just finished eating before I hit the door, but she acted like she was starving. Then after bath I couldn't find her. She was in the kitchen eating from a plate one of her sisters left on their chair rather than carrying it to the sink like they are suppose to do. She was shoveling it in.

I've been throwing up this time around. Not fun. I'm usually feeling pretty good at lunch time but the rest it is just yuck.

Please pray for a heavy rain starting at 2:30 (lightening would help too) and continuing until 4. That way soccer and pictures are canceled and Maddie can go to a birthday party.

My life will be so much better next Sunday. The dance recital is next Friday and Saturday. Sunday it is done!!! Then I can look forward to the following Friday when I get my u/s.

Well I still have the hives, and I still haven't been to the doctor about them, maybe I'll get lucky and they'll be gone by Monday, sigh.

I have new pictures and two videos of Desmond up on my blog. His favorite new thing recently is climbing out of the bath tub, it makes bath time so much fun.

We also started night weaning last night and Desmond was not happy with the decision, hopefully tonight will be better, but from everything I've read it will probably be worse. I know he doesn't need the 2am feeding though since half the time he sleeps through it, and it would be so nice to get him sleeping for 7 hours before nursing on a regular basis.

Yes, I know! : I have been really struggling with cutting it. I want it to be curly, long all over, but am afraid that if I cut the back the curls won't come back. Plus, I am trying to hold out for his nose to heal so I can take him to get his 1 yr pictures taken. (A cardboard box scraped his nose and is taking forever to heal, but I don't want that in the pic )

So, does your dh know since you have been throwing up? Or, was it just the rest of the family and the girls you were trying to come up with a unique way to tell?

: for the pukies going away and : for lots and lots of rain and thunder and lightning

Oh, he is too cute! I am grateful for the feats that Micah cannot yet accomplish, such as climbing on tables and out of bathtubs. However, I *really* would love it if he could walk by the time we go on vacation. I think it would be so cute to see him toddling on the beach.

I don't think we are going to look at nightweaning for a little while. I work full time, and while he does come and visit me twice to nurse, there is a 5 hour (or so) period where he doesn't get to nurse/see me. It just seems cruel to add withholding at nighttime in addition to that. However, if all goes well for you, maybe I will think about it. Keep us posted on how it is going!

good luck with nightweaning! when we nightweaned kaylo, he adjusted pretty quickly.

zenon has taken three big falls in the last 24 hours... he's got some bad bruises...
the last fall was a bad one...he fell out of a screen (open) at a bday party we were at...it was at least 1.5 ft down onto a large rock! there were 18 7yos there and one of them didn't shut it and i feel like an bad mum for not being right there! luckily, he didn't get hurt worse. poor kid.

on a different note-- his little 19mo buddy started calling him Nee-Nee. it's really cute.

ETA: And, I would have done the same
He usually doesnt eat THAT much, I think he was traumitized and worried it might happen again, so shovel it in!

I'll say, he made a new sound the very day it was done ("T") and today he took his first steps!!

Happy Mother's Day, everyone!

This is my 13th mother's day. Crazy - I don't feel that old!

Happy Mother's Day!

Last year they were teeny tiny babies...


DH knows. He is so excited that he can barely not say anything. My u/s is in 2 weeks so we'll know what the due date is then so we aren't saying anything this weekend even though it is Mother's day. We're celebrating Claire's birthday in early June so I think we'll hold out until then. We like it when just the two of us know. And besides, my sister said that she is bringing the newest grandchild to grandma's house today...a new black lab puppy. I wouldn't want to take away from that.

Sophia was up crying during the night. She forgot to poop after supper so she pooped during the night. She was ticked about getting a diaper change. She hates them, especially poopy diapers. She had a hard time going back to sleep. She didn't want a bottle. And we are officially out of breastmilk. So hopefully now we can start getting her used to a sippy cup.

Happy Mother's Day all!

For my mother's day I get a day all to myself. It is really quiet around here with DH and Desmond gone. They are going to change the oil in my car and then do various other errands as well. I am thinking about making an ice cream sundae for lunch and enjoying the solitude.

Last night went really well for the night weaning, he woke for a minute or two around 2am and tossed around for a few seconds before falling back to sleep. We'll have to see how tonight goes. He did wake at 6am to eat, but I don't have a problem with that feeding yet, it is the 2am feeding I really want gone, 7 hours straight sleep is just nice.

The hives might be gone, I haven't had any Benadryl yet today and I don't see any yet. I didn't have any yesterday from about 11am till 11pm and I was fine, so they may be gone, which would be really nice. I'll have to wait and see though.

I hope everyone is enjoying their day and has a great mother's day.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Dh bought me a HUGE black forest cake :
And tonight we're making lobster and mussels...
Plus we bought 300$ worth of trees at the store today ::
A Ginko Biloba tree, some weird cool red japanese maple and another one whose name escapes me. And we have a small yard. I love trees :

Hey guys! just checking in from the big bad united states!

I'm having alone time- my mom took evangeline for a walk because Evangleine and I both were getting very mad with me trying to get her down for a nap. I get so frusterated when I know she is beyond tired and won't calm down. I nurse, I rock, I lie down, I put her down, I pick up, I be firm, I nurse, I snuggle with her. She gets so close and then wakes herself up and cries and wants to play, but fusses the whole time b/c she's so tired. I got frusterated and hugged her, a little too tightly (we were lying in bed and she was rolling all over me) and she got even madder, of course. I feel bad and guilty and mad and fed up- night's haven't been great.... she gets up at least 2x to come into bed, but i have to put her back in a the play pen beside me because she won't sleep if she's in bed with me! : It's awful- we can't sleep together and we can't sleep (for long) seperately. It's even more annoying because at home it would be fine. Happy mother's day to me... big mean momma who hugs her own babies too tight.

Baby Tytus is doing good- he beat his goal and made it to 5lbs 2 oz yesterday!

I'm going to rest - the house is quiet with both toddlers out and mama and baby napping...
Happy Mother's Day eveyone!
