hey! come back everybody!
lets see... eisa met her best friend in the whole world today at the laundrymat. it was so sweet, b/c they were really "playing" with each other, not just staring and running like usual. i would love to make a "play date" but the parents didn't really speak english- it was mostly just smiley head nods. the fun almost ended when eisa led the games astray by trying to climb into a dryer and convince the other girl that it would be fun. ha! they were so funny.

that was the highlight of my day- anyone else?

we saw our nutritionist yesterday..

She is AMAZING!!

She basically confirmed that i was right...Ds was supposed to stop drinking the soy formula, and only drink the Peptamen.

So she tweaked the food schedule, and added a high cal powder called Duocal..which is 42 cals per TABLESPOON.

so he gets
3 cans peptamen a day
1 jar baby food dinner w/2 TBS Duocal
1 jar fruit w/2 TBS Duocal
and one half to 3/4 cup of baby cereal a day!

That's it! that is so many calories he's sure to grow!

And the best news is that in ten days, he grew almost half a pound, and his head grew a teeny tiny bit..which we are thrilled about:

The bad news is that his peptamen is now up to $720 a month..

To give you an idea, that is more than our rent payment per month by $120..

We were struggling so hard to get all that formula down him, plus the med food, plus food and cereal..no wonder the little boy was miserable. Duh.i was mad when i read the Dr's report!:

so...

we are now on our easy management food diet! and we go back in 2.5 weeks to see the gastro doc, who will hear about how he needs to be sure to give freaking info when he prescribes something...:

and we go back and see the nutritionist in a month. Woohoo!

bama- that sounds like great news. especially the head growth. what IS that stuff that has so many calories? in my imagination, it looks like a liquid, but weighs as much as lead. is it hard for you to lift the spoon? (joking)
anyway, so happy to hear that each visit makes your load a little easier. dumb gastro dr. though.

anabellee: thanks for the idea about the v8 fusion. I'm going to have to look in to that.

I've been at my current job for 2 years as of last Sunday. So my secretary and I are going out to lunch to a mongolian grill type place as soon as she can leave. It's a bit of a drive, but we're pg and hungry.

DH just took Claire to Kindermusik today. He said it was a lot of mommy/baby bonding. He said it was like watching teletubbies, kind of hypnoptic and you're not sure why you are watching it, but you kind of like it. The class is for 6 weeks to 18 months and I signed them up for that because Claire isn't quite 18 months yet. He's going to see how it goes next week and I told him if he didn't enjoy it that maybe they could switch to the next class up. He didn't say what Claire thought of it. I'll have to ask him tonight.

bama-can any of his stuff be covered by insurance? like, if the doc wrote a script for it would you get a break? or are they making you buy it all over the counter?

bama - so expensive, but if it makes the guy grow, so worth it, huh?


I was wondering what kind of warm shoes/boots everyones tots will be wearing this winter. We just ordered some of the next step pedoodles. I know they will be good for walking in and out and short jaunts outside, but I am hoping Taso will want to play in the snow and those boots don't seem like they will cut it. We want something with a flexible sole. Any ideas?

I'm here. Maybe we are all trying to recover from watching Lost? Wild episode.

All 3 girls have colds. They woke up with them yesterday. Maddie fell asleep at 7:30 last night with red, flushed cheeks. She's the only one that really ran a temp. I offered her Tylenol, but she didn't want any so I just let them all be. They actually slept well all night. DH has them home today and he said they are a bit lethargic in comparision to how they are usually running all over.

still doing stats i had to miss class...AGAIN...because dh couldn't help with the sick ds. it makes me wonder what's the point when i spend most of the time off school to be at home with him. i took him to the ped and he's got an ear infection: i'm really starting to wonder the point of sending him to daycare when he jsut gets sick and i have to keep him home anyway...

i'm back from peru. the trip was not too bad. we went through a patch of really rough turbulence which was terrifying. it came out of nowhere, luckily i was already holding onto the baby because if not i think he would have fallen. being in lima was ehh so-so, good to see his dad but not my favorite place to spend a few days, too much traffic and rich people, i prefer the slower life of the smaller cities in peru. his dad got the visa without problems, and should be coming in november. the flight home was overnight and luis slept fine, i didn't sleep at all. i'm frantically trying to catch up on homework and i am almost caught up but i'm now getting caught in the wave of new projects/homework/reading. i wouldn't have it any other way though, i adore what i am learning.
i read everything and i had a bunch of comments and am forgetting all of them now. : it is good to hear from everyone.

raising my two sunshine children.

Hi all,

I've been reading along but not posting. Nothing much has been going on here except for Danny not sleeping again. We are planning to move his crib upstairs this weekend, although I am getting cold feet about it. I am a bit tired of having him in our room, and feel sure he'll make the adjustment without too much trouble but it seems far. The master is on the first floor, and Miles's room as well. His room is too small for the crib too so poor Dan goes upstairs (where there are two more bedrooms with beds so we can take turns keeping him company for however long it takes). Hmm.

Who else has babies sleeping in their own room now?

He got his first haircut today -- I'll post pics later. :

Ugh, mamita michelle...NOT FUN about the turbulence. Must've been really scary.
Bama, how's Schuy today?
Melissa - we have a mattress in Cully's room, but we are pretty lazy about actually using it. I still like having that little chunka in bed with us. Gotta see pics of that haircut!

Schuy has been in his own room in his own crib since around ummmm 8 mos or so??

He was in the cradle in our room until 7 or moremonths, then outgrew the cradle a little, and once we got dd into her own toddler bed and out of the crib, he went into the crib.

He LOVES it...he loves sprawling out, sleeping upside down, and rolling himself up in his quilt...

He is doing ok..

we are still waiting on the insurance approvall..

Pray people pray, if you pray, lol.

Hello. I've been reading along for the past few days, but no time to post. DH's brother and fiance just left and my parents and grandma will be arriving Sunday. It's my first go at having Thanksgiving (never cooked a Turkey before), so if anyone has any words of wisdom, they'd be much appreciated.

I hope everyone's doing well. I should be doing laundry right now, so not much time for comments. But:

Ashleylesh - I'm going to get Sage these boots. A friend's daughter had them last winter and said they worked well. I don't know if you need anything that warm but we sure do up here!! They're only $17 Canadian, which I think is very reasonable:

Bama: we are praying for you. How's the relactation going??

Okay - seriously, I've got no time for comments!!

those are really neat boots! i think i want some for ds. we need them here because it gets so cold and windy. plus we spend lots of time in MI so they would be really handy.

mamita-glad you made it home safe. i'm way to chicken to fly right now.

meli-ds has had his own bed (mattress) since 9mths and he loves it. i wish he would still cuddle with us but he's just no into that anymore.

bama-still praying for ya'll!

Scratch that...I found sizing charts:
http://www.mec.ca/Main/content_text....=1160198534973

BUT...The smallest size listed is 7. Sage is maybea six, so I guess there'll be room for lots of socks!

Those boots are cool. I need to start tracking down the winter gear. Somehow snowboots and scarves make great dress up clothes and tend to be hiding in the bucket with the other dress up stuff.

Michelle (not me, of course): glad the trip went well to Peru. Somedays I really miss all of the book learning of college, but I know I would have so much trouble trying to focus with little ones around. I'm glad that you are able to do it. That should be good that Luis's dad gets to come in November.

Who asked about the turkey? Check Martha Stewart. I think every time that I've had to make one I've looked it up on her sight. I also use a plastic bag to cook it in. I think it is a Reynold's turkey roasting bag. They seem to cook faster in there and come with instructions too. Are you having to make everything or is family helping out with the sides? An easy side dish for sweet potatoes (if sweet potatoes are part of Canadian t-day) is to make them into chunks, use 1/3 cup oil, and a packet of lipton onion soup mix. The recipe is usually on the box for white potatoes, but I like sweet potatoes better. You can also do a combo of white and sweet.

I'm trying to avoid all of the things I need to do upstairs (get the dresses ready for the baptism tomorrow, get dressed, etc.) We were suppose to go to a homecoming parade at USD (DH and mine's college), but the girls still have colds and Maddie has quite the cough. I can't decide what we should do. DH, of course, is still sleeping. I feel like I should eat, but I feel kind of nauseated too.

Oh, someone found me. Got to go find a band aid...
