Geo - I'm so sorry, if there's anything I can do...I know I can't teach for you. But I'm here...not too far from where you live.
Megan - Ugh. I feel your pain sistah. I feel your pain.
I like what others wrote before, the days are long, the years are short (or something like that
). I hate when dh wakes me up snoring. Especially when E is actually sleeping! It's just somehow worse.
I didn't realize that was the outfit you gave us! Thank you, it's one of my favorites. We got several outfits as gifts and unfortunately it's all mixed up as to who gave us what...It does fit him - it's a 3-6 month outfit. Which was very smart on your part! Not having feet help a lot. That's why he outgrew a lot of outfits, too tall for them. I think the cloth butt helps too.
Some may have missed this, so I'll ask again, does anyone want some small/newborn cloth diapers and a few wraps? I'd like to keep them in the family.
doctorjen - no worries! I'm tickled pink that they thought he was nummilicious too. Your quilt gets used a lot. A playmat, a cover for the car seat when we're going out in snow/rain, diaper changing station, and oh, of course...as a blanket
For some reason with this birth I think a lot of you. I think it's because I read so many of your birth stories while waiting my turn. That and a book called labor day (birth stories) I think gave me a lot of courage. I still feel like my birth was so powerful and I felt so completely in control. I'm still high from it.
Shanti - I think the quilt is delicious. I just want to sink into it. All those intense and soft blues. I love it! What an awesome gift.
We LOVE fancy nancy!! I think it is such a cute story. And it gives me heart to continue supporting my own fancy nancy. We have similar rules, you can wear dresses, but have to wear pants, heavy tights underneath. It seems to work and dd doesn't mind. I do ask that she leave her dress ups at home, but now I'm asking myself why...
. I guess I need to think more about that because I think it's more about me than her.
Monikita - I love the pic of you on your blog (I love running)...there's a hint of sassy attitude there...love it.
So, I'm finally beginning to think about running again. I have a plan in one of my running books that is for starting (back, over...). It's really easy. I think it's time. My middle is still jello...but I have lost a little more weight. I'm waiting until dd is out of the bathroom to weigh myself. She has taken to weighing herself if the scale is out
I went on an elimination diet and I think that tipped the scales.
