WOW, busy busy morning! Shall I admit that I'm a wee bit hepped up on caffeine this morning? I bought a tin of this incredible hot chocolate for my dad for his birthday and, of course, it *only* made sense to take advantage of the shipping costs and order one for myself too....
Well, this stuff is basically just melted dark chocolate, and it is soooooooo good.... and soooooo strong!
I love so much how busy and talkative our group has become! I look forward to checking in every morning and seeing how you all are doing
I took a few belly pics this morning, and wanted to share a cute one where DD is "tickling" Baby ~ http://www.sassymama.ca/stuffola/Res...of%2037wk7.jpg
Karen, pecans sound like a wonderful addition to the banana-choc chip bread! DD was SO bummed y'day when I broke the news that we were bringing it to my friend that had her baby. I have to admit I was a bit disappointed myself ~ it smelled SOOOO good! Oh well, I got a lovely amount of "new baby holding" out of the deal
I am SO stoked. I got a KKAFP off of Ebay the other day, brand-new, cappucino (the color I wanted, but KK was sold out of my size).... and saved $20!! I swooped in during the last 5 minutes of the auction and scooped it up! The other bidder must have been some p.o'd...
Oh, and I finished the Baby's blanket the other night! It's not in the league of Karen's, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out
I was looking for the "quilted" look.http://www.sassymama.ca/stuffola/babyquilt.jpg
I hope all of you Mamas who have already had your babies will stay on and wait with us! I love to hear the updates, and a few new baby pictures are always welcome! We're growing into quite the friendly group, and I would miss you guys if you moved on!
Andy, that's terrific that you got a full night of sleep! It must have felt wonderful after so many busy nights for you! I hope all is alright with your DD. You and I share a similar doctor motto, I think. I agree though that it's sometimes good to get the peace of mind to make sure everything is ok!
Nicole, lots of
for you and Will! You guys have been through quite a bit, haven't you? It sounds like he's taking it all in stride, but how are you holding up? I agree that breastmilk is like a magic bullet for pink-eye. DD only had it once, but it was gone within a day with a little breastmilk. I was born with a heart murmur, and from what I've read it's not all that uncommon. I hope all turns out to be a-ok with Will!
Leigh, I developed a rather mild case of hemmoroids (sp?) last pregnancy... so far (TOUCH WOOD!!!) I haven't seen them recur this time around. I didn't really do anything, just tried to eat as much fiber as possible and drank lots of water. They really became an issue more after the delivery than before, but still my MW said they weren't severe enough to worry about. They gradually went away on their own... hope yours do the same! (and hope my good luck continues this time!
Chiromom... Oh, what a tough night it sounds like you had! Sorry that it's continuing on into today
I hope the weather clears a bit and that you get a nice, long nap this afternoon. Missing out on rest is so tough, particularly when you have little ones that occupy your time and need lots of patience.
Speaking of toddlers, am I the only one who has noticed a real change in behavior? DD has become much more clingy and whiny the last few days. I'm wondering if maybe she's a bit of a "Baby Barometer" and it is a sign that we'll have our new wee one soon? Regardless, I have to admit she's driving me a bit C-R-A-Z-Y !! She needs this... then that... then something else altogether. Right now, she asked to sit in her high chair in the living room where she'd been painting beside me this morning. Fine, in she goes.. Now she's hungry and demanding to go down... No doubt in a minute, that will change too... aaaaaarrrrrrghhh!!!
Ok, I will go find some food for the monkey. Wow, from the number of smilies in my message, I guess my caffeine intake is rather self evident this morning!
