September 07 Mamas-Time Flies It is JUNE!! - Page 20

post #381 of 430
Jeanine - You're totally right, to me that statement is not so much about breastfeeding but more that people think the US is perfect and we have acceptable standards of living everywhere when we don't, and that we're exempt from breastfeeding standards somehow when we shouldn't be if people are basing it on that one fact. You are absolutely right that even if we did have acceptable living standards for everyone and access to clean water that breastfeeding is still the absolute best. I know what you mean about the AAP, I always try to word it so people don't misinterpret it.

That is a cute new smiley!

I just lost my in box for my email. I am not :

I am so far behind on so many things. I had just cleared all the paper from my desk and was about to deal with the inbox. It is gone. Ack. I wish I had my own computer. I am sure ds did something while he was on here.

There are so many people I need to check in with now that I don't know who I am not replying to and what not. It will be like writing Christmas cards in June (or July).

jeanine, stay away from fire. Seriously, keep your loved ones safe and I hope you are home safe soon. I think that typo is hilarious. Beastmilk. So far I've always caught it before slipping it into any handouts or anything but it is so easy to type.

Katie, come in from the rain.

Time to feed the beast.

I hope you and your family are doing okay!

I was going to post again but then saw these 2 posts and I can't stop laughing and I'm sitting in the dark and my fingers don't want to find the keys very well.

I can't stop laughing....

So needed to laugh today....

Got a bill from the hospital for when I went in for some bloodwork on 5/27. I was there for 25 minutes and the bill is a few bucks short of 1400 bucks. WHAT???

Update on preemie friend.

She took the babies in for a well visit and her normal ped wasn't there. The ped she saw upped the babies meds for the reflux a bit and said it would be a good idea to put them back on a 2-3 hour feeding schedule.

Her normal ped said up to 5 hours would be ok.

She said she didn't want to go back to that 2-3 hour business bc she goes back to work in 3 weeks. They will be 9wk old.

She has an au pair. Is the au pair incapable of giving them bottles every 2-3 hours???

I kept my mouth shut. for now........

Falicia: They just moved. I believe they are close to Green Bay area now....

Ok, update done. I'll be back tomorrow when I have more time....

xxoo and to all.

what did they do?!? give you brand new blood?!? that seems like a lot of money for bloodwork

do you think the mama could have ppd? in your posts she sounds *very* detached.
i'm glad the other ped said 2-3 hours. i hope she listens.
post #388 of 430
the thing about small towns in the mountains is information travels very slow. the only thing i know so far today is there are 938 people on the fires. i really want to find out if they held the north line of the big fire again, since the weather changed for the worse, but it will proably be an hour before i can find out. :

: Hi Mamas

I love the new smiley too!!

Lucy and I got back from Atlanta on Wednesday and it has pretty much been a blur ever since.

Jeanine-OMG I am so sorry to hear about the fires...glad you and you family are safe.

MrsB-can't believe what your Mom said about BF or WHO...so sorry. It is wonderful that Marty's new teachers are so caring and responsive.

Sunshine-Lucy has found the stairs too. Time for a gate here too. Also, this last week she was cruising back and forth between the couch and a very low coffee table...she hikes her leg up a climbs on the table like she has been doing it forever.

If your LO wears an amber necklace...do you let them sleep with it on???

Okay...very clingy...whiny babe...must go....

Oh and my internet is out at the house....yuck...yuck...yuck!!!
post #392 of 430
Amber I let both children wear them at night. Unfortunately, they really dont seem to help I was so sure they would. I still leave them on in case they are helping a little bit, and cuz they are cute!!

Stairs Yes, Cian recently discovered them as well :

So, at 9 months and 6 days, Cian took his first steps . Lilah wasnt even crawling at this point He has been cruising for quite awhile, and recently started pushing chairs and stuff fast enough that is more like running. The last coupld of days he has been free standing for long periods of time, last night he was rocking while standing, and tonight he took 2 steps: He totally isnt "walking" yet, but it seems it will be soon!!
post #393 of 430
Woohoo Cian! It sounds like he's doing exactly what Liam was doing around that time, get ready for lots more walking!

SweetTexasgal - I let Liam wear he's to bed, I've only rarely taken it off.

I was up until 2am with Liam last night. He was having a blast walking all around the kitchen and falling on his butt and playing with his toys. Now I understand what they mean when babies develop new abilities and resist sleeping. He crashed tonight just before 9pm and has been sleeping well since :
post #394 of 430
Congrats to Cian on his newfound abilities. Dahlia is working hard to catch up but it will be a bit. She is taking advantage of having learned to pull herself up on things. She is a standing maniac. She was up partying until after 1am last night. We call her party girl.

My dh and dd1 are leaving today for 6 days. It should be fun with the littles and Zaid. I am trying to put on my zen-like attitude. I hope it works!

I have barely been keeping up here lately! Things have been really busy in the last two weeks. I've spent the last week or more getting ready for last night - I had my monthly stamp club here from 7-10, then had to go pick up my Dad and baby brother at the airport at 2:30am!

So excited that they're here and get to see all the boys. My brother has never met Judah, and hasn't seen the big boys in 3 years, maybe? And it wasn't for long, then. My Dad saw Judah in January when I went out to visit, but hasn't seen the big boys in about two years, and again, only for a very short visit (a couple of hours at a restaurant). So having Dad staying at my house and Matt at my sister's place is quite a different sort of visit!

Judah is changing SO fast. A few days ago (Monday? Tuesday?) he started walking with our walker wagon. He LOVES it! It's a little fast still on the tile, but not too bad. And he's mastered it totally on the carpet. He barely holds himself up when standing at tables, etc. - mostly they're just for balance. And he'll stand independently for discernible (if not long!) amounts of time - a second or two. He loves the game of being let go of and then falling back into my hands.

He's also started clapping purposefully! Not all the time but he's working on it. And he's waving!! I don't think Gabriel waved much until after a year (and at some point would only wave "Bye" and not "hi!" But Judah will wave with just one hand now and quite deliberately. I think he's signed "milk" a few times, too. Definitely lots of motor skills developing! So much fun to watch.

Jeanine, thinking of you and the fires! My dad is from So Cal and I've been out there during fires before. Scary! We lived in Santa Cruz for a while, ourselves. So sad that the whole area is seeing so many fires.

Sorry I don't have time for more personals... We're getting ready to get some dim sum. : : And my brain is fairly awake but my body is NOT!!
post #396 of 430
Heather ~ what is stamp club? I am glad you are getting to see dad and bro. Dahlia just started really clapping and saying "yea" this week. I am glad she isn't pushing her way around the room yet. I am just not ready.

I am making it through the first day with all my help gone. Only a few minor flare ups so far. We have just stayed in because it is too hot and the olympic trials are in town. It is a mob scene out there. I am not looking forward to the whole dinner/bedtime fiasco but at least I have Zaid here to hang out with Dahlia while I get Eavan to sleep. He isn't good for much more than that. (that sounded horrible. He is a great kid just 10yo and not super helpful unless I desperately need it)

I think I will have to practice getting Dahlia on my back. Is there a backcarry smilie? I have to look. NOPE!

Gotta go put Dahlia down for a nap.

Lactivist I am thinking about your time 'alone'. Grace, style and GOOD humor is what I have been telling myself. My 11 yo ds might be more helpful than dh so I have to be very careful not to ask to much of him. My 9 yo dd on the other hand is about as helpful as a second rear end when trying on jeans. I just don't get it. The others are why I need the help.

Linus is just getting around to standing and pulling up. He is clapping and when he sits he spins in circles, almost endlessly sometimes. It is a bit disturbing in a funny way. I can do a back carry by myself in the MT but not my preferred ergo.

We are having very late bedtimes for the kiddos (10 pm) and I am ready to start pushing them early, ten minutes at a time.

My parents came down today and we had a short visit.

Heather, enjoy the visit with your brother. We had a similar visit last month.
post #398 of 430
Thanks! My friend came over and helped with the dinner hour so that was really nice. Both boys fed, little girl smeared up good. I have another hour or so until I get Eavan to bed and he is outside right now so things are going well. Dh and crew made it to California safely so I can breathe again.

Aw there is a sleeping bag on the floor and Dahlia keeps snuggling all over it.

Good humor! That is exactly what I need. I think a comedy is in order tonight. On demand here I come! :

I hope your bedtime change is successful. Ours never are! Eavan is the first and only kid that goes to bed regularly at an early time. He demands it. I figure the big kids will corrupt him soon enough. I should go check on him. I will be around later.

post #399 of 430
Our bedtime changes are not being very successful at all.

Is it really to much to hope for that the children would all be in their beds at 10:00? I : 7:30 bathtime followed by 8:00 bedtime. I would say we had this routine for close to 10 years. Then, Whammo! No more.

Linus sleeps next to me, touching me along the length of his body, chin in my palm, belly button in my underarm, legs alongside my torso. The other option is latched on. Oh, his feet MUST be uncovered no matter what.

I am off to figure out what to do with my day before somebody else comes up with an idea I don't like. : to all.

Hi there.

My name is Lisa. I was asked to come on by my good friend to tie up some loose ends with coops/swaps/Tp and to check in here...

Her mom had another stroke end of the week.

I don't know when she will be back online but I do know she has a few of your emails and she may try to contact someone that way.

I don't know what the universe is trying to tell her but I for one have a few choice words for it regarding her. It's just not fair to lay all of this on someone in such a short time.

I am happy though that I chose to move home this year so I am here to help out...so she doesn't feel so alone IRL.

I will update soon if I can.

Send prayers and blessings......

Blessings to all of you from her. Kisses for the babes.

Lisa.
