and I think I might be pregnant
That is funny. We were in Birch Bay to last weekend. Just for a short time though.

When are you going to find out for sure? Are you excited?

We went camping this weekend. It is cooler out now and Miss Maggie froze during the night as she would not stay in the sleeping bag or underneath the blankets. We did have her dressed in a heavy sleeper PJ with a onesie underneath.

Kristen- Are you going to test??!! Hope you get the results you want!

Heidi- When we take Seb camping he is cold too. I have to bundle him up in fleece or wool because he also hate blankets on him.

Norah is learning new words in leaps and bounds the past few months. She's still not a big talker especially with strangers. Even with me I have to ask her "do you want food, do you want a drink, do you want to go outside..." She shakes her head "no" and when I get to the right one she signs "please". Gah!

Her other word is "owww" which she loves to use in public for no reason!

Uses utensils always lol, is really close to being potty trained, eats meat and fruit mostly, no bread! Sang along to "happy birthday" to me last week. Although it was more like ahhhhhhh ahhhhhhh..... She tried!

Blood curldling screams? Yep.

DD is a tiny one. She's just 22.5 lbs and 28 inches tall. 15 month pic

Kermit is rapidly becoming more verbal, too. He has more words than I give him credit for. He can say words like bat (the animal) and cheese. He understands seemingly EVERYTHING I say. Even if I'm not talking directly to him he may leave the room and come back with something that he thought I was talking about. Often I can get him to take things and throw them away in the trash can. Sometimes he throws away things he shouldn't. We've been missing the DVD remote from our bedroom for about a week. Not sure what happened there.

I can't believe how quick he's growing up. I don't think I expected him to be this grown up already. It breaks my heart. But he is just more fun and sweeter every day. He still nurses lots and lots, though, which is fine with me.

I left him with friends last week so DH and I could go to a concert. We were apart for about 4 1/2 hours. He was fine, really, but I missed him so much. I made DH leave before the concert was over. That was the longest we'd been apart and I don't think I'm interested in doing that again any time soon.

Sorry for the ramblings, but for some reason I'm awake at 4:30am...

Question. I'll post here before I go off to health & healing.

Since last night I noticed that Mickey is kinda dusky around his mouth and nose. WHen he cries it turns really blue/purple. He woke up and seems dizzy. He fell off his chair while he was eating his breakfast and he's just not himself.
What would you do?

Oh my! I don't know what this is at all, but I'd advise to trust your Mama gut that something's not right and get it checked out.

Happy Birthday all you Virgo Mamas! And also Kittn, I hope Nate does Ok with his surgery. Poor baby.

We've all been sick here all week long and it has really sucked. Akasha is nursing like a newborn, which is great for her and I know going to help her so much, but it certainly isn't helping my cold go away. I need some sleep! And I am hungry as a horse... ugh. Sorry for the vent, it's been a tough few days!


In other news, we are getting some shrieks over here for sure, and I know A understands what I say most of the time, but she isn't talking much yet. She has gone from banging her little piano to playing one note following the other. And she's a climber too. And basically just all-around adorable and mischievous. Yup, she gets away with a lot with that combo.

Well, he seemed less dizzy as the day wore on and the blue-ness kinda faded. Although, when he did cry (once) today it turned uber-blue again. He doesn't seem extra tired. I'm thinking I'm just going to keep an eye on it for now.

I wonder if it's just teething... A is teething like crazy right now. She is getting all 4 molars top and bottom. Thank heavens for teething tablets!
post #34 of 111
I was wondering if teething could cause dizzyness. I think it might. I don't think it'd cause blue, but that could be explained by the chest cold he was getting over. . .actually I guess that could cause dizzyness too

Hi All! Its been a few months, but again - my life has shifted and I have more time to post again.

Things are upside down here definitely though. DH is living 100 miles away in Vegas, going through the fire academy. Its up and down for him right now and of course that brings stress to me and then, as a result the kids. But we are getting by and are now over half way through. 11 weeks down, 9 to go. woot!

Emma is doing pretty good. She's getting her bottom molars right now. She's already got the top set. But she is a bear to be around right now. She's totally doing the shreiking thing too! Ethan never did that - so its quite suprising for me. She understands a lot of what I say, understands simple commands, and has about 20-30 words. She says something new every day though, its really fun to watch.

I ended up enrolling my 3 year old in preschool this year. He is really enjoying it and that is so neat to watch. He's learned so so much. Its really helping me too - since I'm alone with the kids 5-6 days/nights a week - its a small break for me.

I'm keeping busy too. I started sewing last year and I really love it. I just opened an etsy shop, so I have been busy since preschool started for my son, getting ready for that.

Anyway, I am really going to try to be around a lot more this month!

Hi! Nice to find this group again. I haven't posted in months!

Those of you with girls - what are you doing about long bangs in the eyes? DD will not tolerate anything in her hair so far. :

I didn't see you post this before! Rearfacing is 4-5 X safer than forword facing. 1yr and 20lbs is a bare minimum. Most britax convertables the minimum is 22lbs.
Even the AAP now recomends rearfacing until the limits of the seat. For Britax that's 33-35lbs and within 1 inch of the shell top.

ETA--my Ds1 was rf'd until 23 months and I'm hoping Mickey gets to rf until 3 :

Yes, but have you ever been in an accident where the seat has flipped (as it should)??? That is wht made me decide to turn DD around when she was a year. She was 23lbs then and well within the weight limits but her long legs stretched out and she was resting them on top of the regular car seat by the headrest. When that seat flips it nearly folds them in half. And yes, my seat was installed properly. : I wish I didn't get the feeling after seeing that that rear-facing is NOT all it's cracked up to be, but I did. Just my experience. All those crash tests are done with dummy's, not real live squirming children.

Neither will Maggie keep anything in her hair. Her bangs were down to her mouth and anytime she ate it was all in her bangs not to mention how they hung over her hair so we got her bangs cut in August.

That is awesome. Miss Maggie would get so sick from riding rear facing. We could not drive more then 5 minutes without her getting sick. When it started effecting my driving where I was trying to stop the choking in the back, we knew it was time to move Maggie.
