September 07 Mamas-Time Flies It is JUNE!! - Page 14

post #261 of 430
THANK YOU for all the good vibes, ladies. It feels pretty good knowing a bunch of people are rooting for you, kwim?

We're going out of town tomorrow and hope the landlord will fix the dryer/wash the carpets/deal with the plumbing while we're gone.

Also, our cars were supposed to be shipped from CA on the 3rd - they're still sitting in front of my parents' house in San Jose. We're riding bikes all over the place but still spending $$$$$ on a rental car. Ugh!

Hair: We're not cutting Chaya's hair till she's three years old. In traditional Judaism, boys don't have their first hair cut till three years old (and during the Omer if possible) the ceremony is called an Ushperin... the hair is then cut short all over with the peyos (side locks) left in front of the ears. At three boys typically begin their Jewish education. It totally doesn't apply to girls, but I like the ideas behind it so we're waiting to cut her hair. Of course, if she finds scissors before then, I guess we'll have to deal to you, sunshine

Hey Katie - we just got this new bedspread set and we really have no need for the throw it came with.... I was thinking of making curtains... or a valance. Got any suggestions, oh Fantastic Sewing Lady?

Falicia, I hope you come home to a laundry set up that works in a perfectly dry space.

I like the haircut idea and the meaning behind it. My lo will be three next week and we are still waiting for her to get hair. It is actually kind of cute and wispy, not truly bald but I am starting to get nervous. I just keep telling people that blonde hair takes longer to come in.

How long will it take to get the cars once they ship?

I'm not new to sewing, I did a little in middle school/junior high, but just clothes and things like that. Nothing like diapers. They do take practice and I have a few screwups but nothing that effects the function of the diaper, I'm sure after a few dozen more or so I'll be better at it. The pouches are easier but serging the two sides together can be tricky.

Sunshine - butt cape

mommajb - I hope DS is okay

Falicia - I am sending lots of vibes so that when you arrive back home it will be spotless and all the appliances and plumbing will be working properly.

A good family friend has three kids, the youngest a girl going on...4? She has the shortest hair! I find it utterly adorable. Brown with blond bits, wispy and curly in front of her ears, kinda crazy wispy/short on the rest of her head. It hasn't grown much, ever. Her lack of hair stresses her mother out, but I honestly think she is one of the most beautiful children I've seen.

As for the cars, ONCE they ship it can take anywhere from 3 to 14 days.

Ay, yi, yi! All of a sudden Dahlia is EVERYWHERE! She is getting in the dog's water/kibble, pulling up on things (badly), getting into cords, sucking on the trash can peddle, eating legos, sucking on shoelaces etc etc etc.

Her top tooth finally came in promptly followed by the one next to it. Now there are many more on the way. We are still up every night until 1am because she changed her sleep schedule. It sucks when Eavan wakes at 7:30. At least she isn't waking much during the night. I can't believe how she went from lying around kicking her feet to being EVERYWHERE! I forgot how fast a baby can combat crawl.

She is also demanding to eat every day now. She ate some waffle on Father's Day and thought that was very exciting.

Katie how did you change your screen name? I am trying to figure out how to do it and can't seem to find it. I have no idea what to change it to but will come up with something.

Wendi - click on Usernames and Titles at the top. It costs $2.50 to change it but you just send them a message through paypal with your old and new username.

Don't change your name!! it is like you won the lottery with lactivist.
(I understand if something fits you better )

Ds is bruised but fine. He took today off from soccer and paper routes, baseball wasn't scheduled for today. He did however break his retainer. This is retainer #5 for him : At least he hasn't hurt his teeth.

Dear Wendi,
Please accept my fondest apologies. I knew Lilah was up to no good with her waking in the wee morning hours. She has taken to babbling in her sleep....half awake.....Dh thinks she's singing but I told him she's not...she's communicating to her baby friends.....teaching them the things she learns and thinks are soo fun. We have no kibble here to eat bc Leo is gone but we have miniscule things on the carpet even though I Dyson it twice a day. She crawls on all 4's, commando and does her own variation of a crab crawl. Today she was in an inverted V so be on the lookout for that bc she babbled alot last night. She crawled over to her sister's lunch plate today and snatched one of her Vegan Popcorn Nuggets (which amazingly enough tasted like chicken........that ended up in my bag and not my friends bc they were hers) and crawled away way faster than I thought she could. I followed her and she had shoved the whole thing in her mouth sucking on it. These girls I tell ya.......If I see anything else on the up and up, I'll let ya know.....

*hug*

Ah I see so that is why Dahlia moans and babbles in the wee hours. She is learning all the baby tricks from jello. Makes perfect sense. She already passed on the inverted v a couple days ago. They are ahead of us!
I just went to check on them and Eavan was rolling over the top of Dahlia. I would be much more worried if Dahlia wasn't grinning so big about the whole thing. They are quite the team.

I am glad he is alright. Wow! #5 huh?

I am torn about changing my name. It was like I won the lottery when I got it. I am just not feeling it right now. Dahlia calls bbl.

Mommajb - Glad he's okay, that stinks about the retainer though.

Wendi - Andrew forgot to drop your package off today when he left this morning, so I may not get it out until tomorrow if he doesn't get home before the post office closes.

Liam is taking a long nap so I'm getting a bit of time to myself. He was really easy to get to bed last night and only woke up twice. Now if I can only convince myself to go to bed earlier. I'm such a night owl and I can't break the habit. His canines still haven't come in but the gum is really swollen, I feel so bad for him because I know it hurts. I pick him up and he automatically bites my arm or shoulder (ouch!). Hylands is doing nothing for him.
post #275 of 430
lilah has been diaper free for the last few hours bc her sister took off with our lone snappi and i can't get pinning down...she's outgrown the covers we have and i was all set to buy a few used ones over at diaperswappers but dh just walked in and we need a starter for the car....

oy vey.....

lilah just leaned over and took a swig of my mountain dew. i was holding her in my right arm and leaned over...she can suck from a straw pretty well now.....geeze louise. i normally don't drink the stuff but w the coffee maker broken i needed a jolt of caffine and now she is reaching for it bc i moved it and she's crying......

man oh man....

wendi; happy he's ok....i love your username!!

katie; do you have myspace im or yahoo im?? i'm a night owl too....Hylands did nothing here either.....I finally broke down and got some Orajel and it helps a bit...

ok, gotta jet..somehow she is completly naked now....how does she do it????
post #276 of 430
Katie, I am a total night owl also. In all these years I haven't learned young children get up with the sun.

I have new photos of everyone's haircut in my siggy.

Sunshine - I use AOL instant messenger sometimes, not big on the messaging though.

Mommajb - Such cute pictures of your kiddos!

mommajb-beautiful family! Glad to hear DS1 is okay...how scary.

lactivist-I love your name too. Lucy is also all over the place....picking all sorts of things off the floor and directly into the mouth. She is also standing and letting go now....

KatieJD-how many teeth does Liam have now? I am not sure if I think Hylands are working for Lucy either. How often did you all give them to your LO's

Okay Mama's what do you do with your LO in the middle of the night when they don't want to sleep and everyone else in the house is sleeping? Lucy had a better night last night, but the 2 previous nights is up for hours...just tired...tired but she refuses to go back down. Get up and let her play in the middle of the night??
post #280 of 430
SweetTexasgal - He has 8 teeth now. Hyland's seem to work really well up until these last couple of teeth but lately nothing is helping. When Liam gets up in the middle of the night I am usually awake (night owl again) so I let him play until we're both ready for bed. If he wakes up while we're sleeping I keep him in bed and he'll crawl around on top of us and look out the window for a while before going back to sleep. Not the most comfortable thing and I probably should get up with him but I'm lazy.
