Good morning. Eli informed me that today will be diaper free... thus far, he's peed on the potty once and sat down on it for a few minutes and farted but no poop. :LOL
: We'll see how things go. He looks very tall today, and I can't decide if it's because he's growing or he's naked & his legs are closer together... I think it's a little bit of both. Woohoo! I was starting to wonder if NewBean was going to be bigger than Eli before she was 4 months old, but it seems like Eli's having a growth spurt right now. Maybe it's all the colostrum. :LOL I was actually leaking in the shower the other day. Nice!
Is it strange that I'm still totally impressed by my body's ability to feed my children? I still think it's just so cool that my body can continue to grow a baby after they're born, you know? I've been nursing for 18 months now, you'd think I'd have stopped getting excited about having milk.. :LOL
Next weekend, I am cutting off *all* of my hair, and the following weekend I'm having a yard sale. At the end of the yard sale, I plan to put everything that's left into a few boxes and auction them off on eBay if I can. "Huge lot of women's clothing, sizes 10-12, $1.00" :LOL It's really at the "get it the hell out of my house" stage. I can't wear some of my favorite t-shirts anymore, because they're just inappropriate. "Tell your boyfriend thanks" takes on entirely different nuances after you have children.
: or "Just be happy i'm not your kid", which my own mother thinks is hilarious.. it's just wrong on a parent. :LOL I'll be keeping "keep staring! I might do a trick" and "don't let your mind wander-- it's too small to be out by itself" and probably "you suck and that's sad" which always makes me giggle when I wear it. :LOL
Last night, I tried to tape something and discovered that Eli has completely killed the VCR. I sincerly doubt that it would be worthwhile to repair it; I only paid about $50 for it, and that was... 8 years ago? :LOL I'm sure it'd cost more than it's worth to fix it, but it's just so irritating!! We were planning on buying two big bookshelves with the tax return, but now we're thinking we should buy an entertainment center to protect the dvd player (which is thus far undamaged as far as we can tell) and the new VCR (which I don't even want to buy until we can put it out of reach).
: Hopefully, we'll be able to get something with shelves for books/tapes. :LOL
My belly is huge and achey. NewBean is still turning somersaults all the time.. my mother laughs and says "You did that! And you used to swing from my ribs, it drove me nuts!" :LOL I still think that she's got a really long cord and that's why she can do such things. I'm looking forward to finding out, but since I'm only 34 weeks I'm willing to put off getting really excited about the birth.
Speaking of putting it off... QoC, my mother was 6 cm dialated with my brother for nearly two months before he was born. Her doctor was convinced that she'd drop him on the sidewalk one afternoon. :LOL She ended up scheduling an induction on her due date, but the nurse waved the pitocin needle at her and suddenly she was pushing. :LOL
