Sept. 07 Mama's - November! - Page 3

post #41 of 280
I cant believe we are talking about potty learning, my almost 3 year old is still not there....some days we are close Although, she did have a week when she was 15 months were almost every pee was caught, including staying dry through the night. Then it ended

Man, Cian is wearing me out. He is turning into his sister as far as sleeping, skipping naps, staying up late, etc. He is also very ahh vocal when he doesnt get to do what he wants like dancing on the rocking chair or table, or playing on the stairs, or climbing onto the handles of dd's trike. I dont know how we have avoided injuries with him thus far. Its very funny and cute, but exhausting.

I am also on a bit of an emotional hangover from last night: After staying up to midnight watching election coverage, I couldnt fall asleep It was about 3 when I finally did, and then Cian woke up at 6:30

Waiting for babies is boring!

She is just sitting there not having a baby.

She keeps having irregular contractions but nothing exciting. I hope this baby comes soon.

Come on baby!

Love your pictures, mrsb. Marty is a doll. I want a bagel now

For mamas with boys with long hair - When do you start using regular shampoo and conditioner or the equivalent for children? Liam's hair is about shoulder length now when wet and gets super curly, we are starting to deal with tangled hair so regular baby wash isn't cutting it.

ds didn't start growing his hair out until he was 4.5, until then we kept it short. i can't remember when we started using shampoo/conditioner on dd1. jamsion is bald. sorry i'm no help.



more good vibes to Kaija, babe and Wendi

Katie-I switched from all-over baby wash to shampoo a few months ago and also use a spray leave in conditioner. Lucy's hair was getting tangled and frizzy. Now when I use the leave-in conditioner it curls up in the back again. She had her first haircut last weekend to cut off the really fine fly-away baby hair along her neck and it too cute and looks thicker.

We can still get by with California Baby shampoo and conditioner on 5 yo dd. The caveats are that I have to do her hair not her or dh and we leave the conditioner in or we would never get through the curls.

At least she's not miserable right???

Sorry, should have said girls with long hair also. Not trying to be sexist
What brand of shampoo/conditioner do you use? I only have access to conventional stuff here since we have to travel an hour to trader joe's/whole foods. Can I just use my trader joe's conditioner on him?

Lucy certainly doesn't have long hair, so I can't help you there, but I've seen California Baby stuff at our regular stores--regular grocery stores and I think at Target and/or Walmart, if those are near you, Katie!

Alas, my little non-walker has discovered the joys of climbing onto furniture to jump and/or throw her body around onto pillows. She can't get onto the couches because she can't get a good grip, but we have one chair (a swivel rocker type thing) that she can tip forward just enough to reach the back of the cushion and pull herself onto it. I have the chair positioned so it's against one end of the couch so she can't tip herself off it, but that means she can climb over the back of the chair to get onto the couch! I think I wished too hard for a little gymnast and now I have to suffer the consequences!

Jess: I keep thinking, "Gosh, Marty is so tall." and then I forget he is just a wee big older....He's adorable. I love the stand the pumpkin is on. What alphabet blocks? I was sad to return here to see the Co-ops going away and joined up on Wendi's yahoo one. I need to check it...I found a note I received from Jess the other day tucked in my diaperbag. I hadn't used the bag in a bit but I went somewhere with a friend and we were gonna be out awhile so I grabbedit. I had it stored at mom's bc I haven't taken a diaperbag with me for months....and reached down to clean it out to put new things in it and found a tiny diaper with banana's on it and a note from Jess. I read it a few times...nothing special....just when are we gonna have these babies type stuff but it warmed my heart and made me smile. It's not tucked in Lilah's baby box. Oh, YAY for the potty!!!! DD1 was about 16 months.

Katie: Thanks. It's been hard. Espcially being back home again but it's not the house I grew up in so it's not really like being back home home...hahaha. Mom is thrilled and it puts some ease on my sister so she can go back to her nanny job more often. She cares for the kids of my very first high school boyfriend. It's fun to see him and chit chat. His wife is so nice and dd1 was conceived the night he got married......Dp and I were too tired to drive home from the wedding so we got a hotel room halfway home.... Hugs for the freak vomit episode...I second the cleaners someone else said. Bac-out is a fave here.

Wendi: So happy that Jenabe got an extension. I am sure that relives a bit of what's gonna happen. Can't wait to hear about labor. Were you ever able to get a late belly pic for all us observers???

mommajb: I know. Someone had a super cute tie dye bum underneath her costume....it peeked out in a few pics I think. I'll see if I can find one. She has her faves out of those.... for Linus "missing". I've had a similar experience a month or so ago. I fell asleep downstairs at a friends house and Lilah was asleep with me but on the other end of the sofa. My friend came home and Lilah apparently woke up and sat up so she took her upstairs with her to play and get back to sleep. I woke up about 3am and flipped out.....looking all over for her. I finally went upstairs and opened the bedroom door and she was all snugged up with my friend (we've been friends for almost 20 years) so I climbed in with them and there we were. I did chat with her bout it in the morning and she said she thought about that just as Lilah was dosing off. HUGS.

Michelle
: Lilah likes packing peanuts too. Someone shipped me something in a swap on a different board last month with the ones that melt (only word i can think of right now) when water hits them. I think she ate 2 before I realized what was going on. LOL @ Lucy and her plate..she's just a proper girl....

Nicole: Hugs for wearig out. Lilah has her moments but it's her big sister that wears me out. Bedtime has been a fight for as long as I can remember......she is happy to be back in bed with me though so that helps. Last night Lilah would NOT go to sleep...fought it so hard to I turned the lights on downstairs and we went to play. She walked over to her swing which she hasn't sat in forever but I brought it with us and patted it while holding her baby and tried to climb in. I giggled and told her ok and put her in it, turned on the waves and the changing light and she smiled and closed her eyes. So sweet.

Hair: Jealous of those dealing with tangles... We have hair but no more or less than months and months ago. My friends though use their conditioner or their conditioner in a spray bottle with some water and then either leave it in or wash it out...HTH.

Ok, I am upoading some photo vomit since it's been awhile. Maybe some First birthday and some odd and ends. Halloween isn't uploaded yet. I don't have my own digital yet and they are on my friend's camera. We won't see her until Saturday.

love and hugs to all.........so many....so much.

Heading out in the 70 degree outside for a bit with the girls since it's back to 40s and rain tomorrow.

Michelle Absolutely! I tell him he’s beautiful all the time. Trying to raise the kind of guy who will take that as a compliment, you know??!!

Wendi : You are too much!

Katie Before I cut Marty’s hair : I bought some California baby spray leave-in conditioner. That seemed to do the trick quite nicely and didn’t weigh down his curls. I also used baby shampoo for curly hair.

Gia Marty is tall and is older so it doesn’t help! He’s so not a baby anymore and I can’t stand it!! I’m glad the note from Jess made you smile. Halloween was a rough one – that’s the day I found out she was in the hospital and everything went downhill fast from there. I just knew she was smiling down on us this year though – the weather was absolutely gorgeous and perfect. I’m in Wendi’s yahoo group and another one too. There’s close to baby and also blackberry dragonfly. The second one is the one that did the Maple Landmark blocks and is now running Uncle Goose which are sooooo cute and much, much cheaper. I think HeatherB runs that one.

Missing my boy like crazy…having to work all damn day really stinks. He was up at 4:50 this morning (yay) and ended up showering with me which means me dodging him running back and forth from one end of the tub to the other. Every time he got to the faucet end of the tub he’d push the stopper to turn the shower water back to the faucet and I’d be standing there in the cold air. Oh how refreshing : He loves to “wash” his tub toys in the running faucet so that’s why he does it. It was actually kind of funny…thankfully my sense of humor woke up before the rest of me this morning :

Wanted to let you all know she is contracting away very regularly. She has lost her mucus plug and everyone is on high alert. She is currently snuggled up watching a movie with her honey. I think I baby will be here before tomorrow! :
