Thanks for the congrats, everyone. We are looking forward to this adventure. I have to admit that I feel guilty when my heart starts to soar with all the possibilities for this new baby's future because I can tell that I have squashed a lot of those for DS. Didn't realize I had done that. In trying to be practical (and I don't want him to have a frustrating life where Mom's expectations are out of reach), I had really turned off a lot of my hopes without even realizing it. If you had asked me 2 weeks ago I would have adamantly denied it.
And on the pooping front (because I know you all want to know), we now have solids that can be thrown in the toilet and they appear in the diaper with a minimum of effort. Whew! There were some bad days for a while where Mom had to help him A LOT (and DH too... pooping became quite a family affair), but DS seems to be over the fear of what is happening and knows if he tells me I'll get him cleaned up and it will all be ok.
Thanks for the book suggestion. Looks like a good one that will answer my practical questions.
Beautiful photos! Everyone looks sooooo happy.
I have a similar problem because DH can't remember that I'm nauseous & that when I get up with my alarm before DS it's because I need to eat before nursing him.
Wow, sounds like you have a lot going on. Good luck with all of it.
