I think the link should work now. It's weird; they work for me when I test them out, and then they don't work for y'all.

OK, sorry to hijack the thread!

Consider this thread still hijacked. Amy, all I get are pictures of you very pregnant. Now, you looked absolutely lovely, don't get me wrong, but I really want to see pictures of Brynn's new haircut.

AWWWW! Brynn looks cute with long hair or short hair! Ellie's hair is getting longer, too. I can't decide whether or not to cut bangs. DH is against it, but I'm getting tired of her hair in her eyes all the time, and she'll only leave a clip/bow in it until she's in her carseat and bored, then she pulls it out. Here's a couple recent pics:


Me and Ellie at the pool


Ellie enjoying a treat

showing off her cute outfit and all her shiny teeth - she has 4 on the top plus two molar that are cutting, and 3 on the bottom with a fourth in the front cutting. Yep, 3 teeth coming it, so we're having very cranky days around here!

Ellie is past the learning to walk stage and into the running stage now! Still just a few words (mama, dada, nana - short for banana, and I think we've heard Hi and No at least once each), and still not much interest in signing. I'm really trying to let go of this total paranoia that I'm doing something horribly wrong to impair my children's speech... I read to them, chat with them all the time, do self-talk, parallel talk, labeling, etc - all the "right" stuff. My kids just seem to be motor-skills driven. Of course, now that Killy's been in speech therapy for nine months he's actually way ahead in language. But isn't that just further proof I was doing something wrong?

I can't believe the December thread is on the fourth page already!!

Mama to DS (05/04) and DD (11/05), married to a wonderful DH.

Jen, I guess I must be a worse failure than you are then, b/c Ezra just said one word and does no signs, and Ethan didn't talk at all till he was almost 2. AND they are behind on motor skills so it's not like they are strong in one but not the other. I think we can do all the right things, but like sleep, eating, etc they're simply not going to do it till they're ready and there's no rushing it. I was just thinking yesterday, with Ethan asking me a million questions and I was like 'urgh, I am sick of answering questions, I wish he would talk to himself for a minute'- this is the child who didn't talk, and even a couple months ago didn't know or understand what a question WAS and that is one of his goals in therapy- now he's talking constantly! LOL I will just enjoy the giggling, cooing, and sweet baby sounds while they last! Precious.

Awwwww! *Amy*, Brynn is TOTALLY your mini-me!!!! How absolutely adorable! I trust that, one day, Noah will have hair! He does have a lot more than he used to (which was NONE! ) but it's so blonde that he still looks close to bald!

Fern, how exciting for you!!! You'll have to tell us all about your new little arrival!!!

Thanks everyone. I love her little pixie cut, and Jason does too. She is total sass now!

QoC, you are totally not doing anything wrong!! Language development, like anything else, is all about the individual child, and just because Killy is in speech therapy definitely doesn't mean that YOU did something to delay his language. You are doing everything right, Mama! I know, though; it can be hard not to second-guess yourself. Brynn still isn't really eating any solids, and I was just thinking yesterday, did I do something to cause this? When they fall outside of "average," I think it's natural to wonder if there is anything else you could/should be doing.

One year ago today, I was birthing baby Winter in my mom and dad's house. I so badly want to go to their house and sit on their couch and just remember every moment. Let's take a walk down memory lane.
I had been having irregular contractions that evening but I went to bed around 11pm anyway and was able to sleep for a couple of hours. At 1am I woke up, unable to sleep any longer. DP and DS2 stayed asleep in bed while I crept downstairs to see if they were going to get stronger. I lasted less than half an hour before I started having trouble coping and I went back upstairs to get DP.
I called my midwife and she said she would come and check me and if it was a false alarm we could all go back to bed. She arrived around 2:30 and I was dialated to a 4 so we knew it was definitely happening. I was given a tincture of cottonroot bark, my contractions were about 9 minutes apart. She went to go get some sleep, assuming I'd be in labor for a while. DP also went to go get some sleep.
At 4:08am my water broke. I remember thinking "Okay, this is *really* it and now I know for sure!" Up until then I was debating on whether or not it would piddle out. I hopped online to let everyone know it was not a false alarm. In hindsight, it's pretty hilarious that even then I wasn't sure I was in labor, considering how soon afterwards he was born. I had the midwife's apprentice wake DP and my midwife up and they started preparing the tub. I mostly stayed up, walking around, but squatting or going to hands and knees to take pressure off my tailbone. I had quite a bit of pain in my tailbone and it felt wonderful when DP applied counter pressure. He was pretty busy getting things ready but I kept hollering for him during contractions because I just wanted him there, I was so comforted by his presence.
About an hour later, one of my parents came down to use the bathroom and noticed the tub all set up in the kitchen, so of course they both decided to stay up. I retreated to the back bedroom because they were in my birth space. I labored on the spare bed for a while and around 6am the midwife checked me and I was dialated to 6cm. The entire time I was having normal conversations between contractions and was completely with it, but during contractions I went somewhere far, far away. It was perfect how I could just come back and return to what I was saying. Everyone was so amazed at how collected I was, and looking back, I am too. After my midwife checked me, I made a comment on how transition must not be too far away, and then I had 3 contractions one right after another that never really went all the way down. I suddenly became very non-verbal and primal. In my head, I was suddenly trapped in my body feeling the pain and I felt very tired. I wanted to be done and I said out loud "I want this to be over."
The midwife suggested I try the tub, which had been filling and alternately waiting for the water heater to warm back up. It was not terribly full at all or particularly warm but I got in anyway. During the next contraction my body pushed involuntarily. I felt immense pressure and when the midwife went to check me, instead of any cervix left she found a baby's head in the birth canal. At 6:09am I started to push on my hands and knees. At first it was really hard to push because his head was coming under my pubic bone and it was so intense I didn't want to push, especially right at my tailbone. After a few pushes, pushing felt better than not pushing so I gave it all my strength. DP got his arm a little too close and I bit him. He backed up pretty quick, but stayed closed by, rubbing my back and reassuring me. I think my mom or someone was taking pictures but I was in laborland and was not paying attention to anyone. I reached down and felt his beautiful soft head shortly before it emerged and it was the most beautiful moment. He was so close, almost within reach and it gave me that last boost I needed to get through it. Finally, much to my relief, out popped his head and on the next contraction I pushed out his shoulders and the rest of his body. His official time of birth was 6:24am. The midwife passed him under my leg and I sat down holding my son. I just cried looking at his face, already completely and utterly overwhelmed by how much I loved him. I think I said "Look at how beautiful he is." As if no one else was looking. DP went and got the older two boys and it being 6am, they were understandably shocked. Winter and I sat in the pool together while I just stared at his face in awe. It was not terribly warm water so we got out after what seemed like hours and when I stood up the placenta just sort of fell out unceremoniously. I went and laid down on the bed in the spare room and my mom cut the cord after it had gone pale and limp. It was the only time he cried. My midwife massaged my uterus to help expel some clots, then I got this fabulous ice pack sanitary pad thing, oh it was heaven. I got dressed and went to the bathroom, which was incredibly weird considering the extreme lack of pressure on my bladder suddenly. I came back to bed and dressed Winter and swaddled him in a blanket. He was pretty alert and calm so I nursed him which prompted some insanely wicked afterpains. I asked for some ibuprofen, which I now find hilarious considering the labor I'd just gone through. I made a few calls and my sister started on her way down from Tacoma which is about 2 hours north. DP and my mom prepared everyone breakfast and we all sat down at the table, and I ate breakfast with my new son on my nursing pillow. I was pretty tired so I went to bed and the midwife, my mom and DP cleaned up. I don't remember much else for quite a few hours because I slept better during that nap than I had in months, snuggled in bed with my brand new baby and feeling quite on top of the world.

Happy birthday Winter.

Ahh, Helen - don't hate Brynn because she's beautiful! (I hope you get that that's a joke on the old Pantene commercials.) Next time y'all are feeling envious of Brynn's hair, please come right on over and try to wash it for me. She *hates* getting her hair washed. You don't know how many times I have envied the fuzzy duckling-haired babes whose heads can be washed easily with a wash cloth!!

Happy Birthday, Winter!

Well we had a bit of a wretched day yesterday. I forgot a doctor's appointment (a specialist I'd been waiting weeks to see - I literally kicked myself, but it's hard to do that and really make it hurt as much as it should!) and then DH for some reason decided to take Rowan over to see his parents and stay there all afternoon and not bring her home at 3 to nurse. I of course came home from work at 3 expecting to nurse... finally called his parents not even knowing if was there but hoping they would have some info and I said "what the hell are you doing, my boobs are going to explode" and he's like, "that's what the pump is for" :. Rowan has another cold too, she should be nursing MORE not less. Anyway, I was pissed off at him, he was pissed off at me for yelling at him, and Rowan wouldn't even nurse when she got home because she'd just had a snack and her nose was all plugged up and we were going to eat dinner in half an hour so I ended up pumping - I got over 8 oz in less than 10 minutes which is something of a record for me. And I did manage to get her to drink more than half of that from a sippy cup while we waited for dinner. But then she hardly ate any dinner, which was ok because she nursed really well going to sleep, then at 12 and 4 this morning, so I feel better about her milk intake now. And DH and I had a long talk and it turns out that he was just stressed and spacey and admitted he screwed up and that we have all sorts of issues that we need to work on.

And then this morning just as I was getting out of the shower, DH called "open the door!" from the hallway and I opened the door and saw him with Rowan in his arms, blood all over both of them - turns out Rowan had stuck her finger up his nose rather enthusiastically and made it bleed. A LOT. Charming child.

But I managed to reschedule my dr.'s appointment for next Monday, which is about 3 weeks better than I thought it would be, so that's ok. Whew.

Happy Birthday Winter!!! I hope you had a terrific birthday

I've also had the nosebleed from the baby- the day she learned to say (and point to) nose. I hope you're having a better evening, Sarah. And I hope the specialist isn't anything too serious.

I also love Brynn's hair- another mama of a bald baby here. She's acutally blonde, with a couple of small mullet-y curls at the nape of her neck. But mostly bald

Good luck with the new baby, Fern.

Thanks Mel! I am having a better day today, although Rowan is still very stuffy and refused to nurse again this afternoon, so I pumped again. I totally have a love/hate relationship with my breast pump.

The specialist is an ob/gyn who is going to do minor surgery to fix my poorly-healed tear from when Rowan was born. It's still gibbled down there and really does need to be excised and sewn up again, so DH and I can enjoy some quality time together. So no, nothing serious, but I am understandably eager to just get it done!

Hey guys sorry to bypass the entire thread activity, but I need help asap.

Abs fell in the tub tonight and bit the underside of her tongue. It quit bleeding after a few minutes but it hurts her to nirse. She can't suck for more than 5 seconds without crying, Do I need to go to the ER? She has had some infants' motrin at 9 so I can't give her more until later.

Thank you mama. I thought of that also. I have been trying to find the *&#%$ breastpump for the past 30 minutes. I think it's in the storage closet in her room. She woke up about an hour after she went to sleep and couldn't nurse. I ended up just holding her and rocking her and she went back to sleep.

It's crazy how close to the back (not tip) the bite is. It looks like a small crescent moon wound, I barely saw it when she cried but it looked like it hurt. She has been the most accident-having babe. My son never had anything happen to him so she comes along and when she gets hurt I feel terrible!! I feel really negligent in this case because I left her in the tub (NO WATER!!) while I was yelling at my dh who was being unhelpful with ds. The ironic thing is, is that I put her in the tub so she wouldn't slip on the puddle of pee she had just left on the bathroom floor. God, hindsight is so guilt inducing!

I think when she wakes again I will have a sippy cup of cool water. Maybe I'll go and try to hand express for a while?
