Lovley pictures everyone! Tricia, I really like your tandem nursing pic! I have one too, but you can see a lot of nipple, so I'm not gonna post it!
Congrats to Tricia, Elaina, Marcela, Jasmine, Traci, earthmama007, and 3 little birds! Wow, it's a baby a day around here right now! I'm loving reading your stories and seeing the pictures of all your precious bundles!
Earthmama007, I just have to say that you are awesome and brave for eating the placenta. I don't think I could manage that one, especially after reading about how it could taste of blood. But wow, kudos to you!
Shannon, isn't it funny? My dh was the same way, "No prefolds!" and now he prefers them too! I think it is because it is how we started, and he doesn't have to worry about which cover (or does it need a cover?) or anything. Although I have to say, if our tax refund comes in soon, I'm majorly tempted to go to an all FB stash. I love them!
Ambam, I hope things happen for you soon!
Hazel weighed 7 pounds the day before yesterday!!! Woohoo! We actually had to return the scale, it cost $90 a month. So we went on ebay and bought a scale (it isn't quite as good, but it will measure to the nearest 10g) for $70, plus shipping. It converts to a postal scale, so it will be useful even when she outgrows it. It isn't here yet.
No news really. I'm trying to learn to knit. I hung out with my friend Allegra, who's son Hunter Cash shared a NICU room with Hazel, and she brought over some soaker patterns from the 1940's! She also showed me a crazy pattern in one of the books for a crib sheet that had a jacket knitted into the top of it with tie downs!!!
We were both horrified. She knits and crochets and told me that she would teach me how, yay!
I went to a scrapbooking party today at which one woman talked about seeing a woman (gasp!) nurse a 3 year old in public! She said that she told her kids, "Okay, time to go home now." (I guess she had to spare them the sight of a boob being used as nature intended.) And another young woman with no kids of her own who was becoming a nanny for a lady with twins. She said, "I'm kind of worried though, because she spoils them so much." So I asked how old they are. Eight months! I was thinking that I'd have no one to talk to at all untill another woman came and it turned out she is a LLL leader. She and I talked about tandem nursing, and I told her I nurse my 3 year-old and she said "awsome!" <3 You should have seen woman #1's face, LOL!
