mikey pretty much likes anyone. he does get 'shy' around strangers, but i don't think he's ever freaked out over anyone. come to think of it, none of my kids ever did, that would be weird...but then pretty much everyone i've been around had been pretty respectful of my kids' space.

Um, my kid used to be shy around the ILs but now he just loves them to pieces... And both my boys love their Auntie J (my sister) Surprisingly, J really likes my mother. I think she finally loosened up. She has always been nervous around babes but she adores J....

S2 adores pretty much everyone, but is wary of my ILs. Then again, it was their choice to pack up in to an RV and take off across the country when she was 4mo, and only come back once. So, it's not my fault if she doesn't want to be held by them, they're strangers!

Sorry, they just left. They talked for months about how much they missed us and the kids, and how excited they were to finally get to meet J and see S2 again, and yet they've only seen them twice in the month they've been in town.

K likes most people if they give her a chance to adjust to her surroundings. FIL got massive screaming for a long time because he always wanted her to face him when he was holding her and she demands to face out. She has issues with BIL too, but I think that's because he's a trucker and gone a lot so she doesn't see him often. After about 20 minutes, she's totally okay with him though.

My 5 yr old Liz is in the Britax booster and Maggie is in the Boulavard. We inhereted a Marathon from BIL/SIL when they bought my niece a booster like Liz's. The marathon dosent fit in Bob's Tundra so we bought a floor model at Babies r us of the alfa omega for his car. Now we have two in there. One as in a booster for Liz and the other w the harness for Maggie.
Liz is also tall and tall in the torso. There is no way she can even fit in the harness anymore.


My friend IRL and on MDC got the marathon since she is expecting in a few weeks. She was thrilled. She is also eyeing my new native sling and Maggie's pink fluff. I think she has a girl in there but she has 2 boys already so who knows....

Who is still slingin the tots? I would love to but Maggie has other ideas and likes to take off. I still keep it with me but if she has her shoes on its kind of cramped in there! We also inhererited a mclaren stroller. Its 5 years old but still perfect. I never was big on strollers but since it was free, we use it at the pool to get there in case MAggie takes off and walking into our downtown area which is a block away from our house, if we dont use the wagon.

We staged Christmas pictures! Well, someone gave us presents a few days later, and we actually remembered to take pictures of her ripping the paper. Our party was OK for what it was. Um... we had chowder and cupcakes! I had party letdown because it didn't turn out how I wanted, but I have now made peace with the fact that every June 16 will be The Day Nothing Goes As Planned.

I am still at the organic knitted harness. Wouldn't macrame be more secure?

SRSLY guys, I got an in person driveby the other day for letting her drink a sippy of water. I can't really say circumstances as I know people who know people who could click on my recent posts feature, and I may have to see them in person here and there. So: sipping water through a straw for a child well on solids is a no no because I could be breastfeeding instead.

slinging both here every once in a while. :

More often than not, if we're running errands, J goes in the sling (thanks, Amy!) and S2 goes in the shopping cart, for which my mom got us a cover, 'cause, ew.

We to the airport to pick my niece up, and ended up wearing both of them (sling for J on front, MT for S2 on back) and got SO many comments, and stares, and words of encouragement. Plus assistance the one time I had to put them back in and J was arching his back and screaming and trying to throw himself backwards out of the sling, while S2 tried to make a break for it over my side. Good times.

It's actually easier on my back than I expected. I think part of it is that when I'm wearing the babes I'm so much MORE cognizant of my posture.

I still use my mei tai (Kozy Carrier) almost every day. Well, every time we go out shopping just me and the baby. Nevie must like it, because she would object if she didn't. the girl has opinions, that's for sure.

ZOMG you jerk! No stalkinggggg. If I told you the whole story you'd barf.

We are using the ring sling a lot in stores and around the house, but she also has new love for the stroller for walks (I kno abusive right). I debated getting a summer weight wrap, but ended up ordering a Beco since husband likes those too, so I should have that in "1-4 weeks," whatever that means.

Ergo and waiting on my carrymemama (which is like a Beco, but a lot cheaper...LOL) I'll let you know how it turns out!

Mikey loves the backpack, but also freaks (like happy) when he sees the umbrella stroller.

Bastian spends a lot of time in the Babyhawk. Front carry, back carry, whatever works best for what we're doing at the time. I prefer the back carry for longer walks, but if I'm wearing the diaper backpack or he's sleeping when I put him in it, then he goes on my front.

Qualia still goes in a carry sometimes, too, almost entirely of her own desire. I'd rather push her in the stroller if she doesn't want to walk. Plus, it gives me a place to stash our stuff!

But she's a cuddlebug and likes to connect frequently, so we've had several walks recently where Qualia's in the Babyhawk on my back and Bastian's in my Maya on the front. That's, ah . . . counting on my fingers . . . almost 55 pounds of toddler. No wonder I don't need a gym membership to lose weight.

If it's anything like the "Ordered to shipped in 10 days" for my Kozy, it will be there in two months.

Sorry to say it, but I am in a time-out (so ordered by Dan) right now from my baby who refuses to lay down and sleep. Despite falling asleep in arms about eight bajibillion times. GYAAAHHHHH!!@!!!!PHIASPIOJAWPEREIOHJ~!~ and also, (I*)&988&^%&^%*&^)(*&)(*&(*&.

Ergo gets used lots, and ring sling in back in commission too. I miss my babyhawk, which dh (d stands for douchebag) let his friend "borrow" before she moved away to Hawaii. : : and : We also use a wagon and a baby jogger. She lovvves the wagon to death, because she can play with toys in it. I have been working pruning grape vines, and she sits in the Ergo for naps and we can sit in the wagon to boob, and then she'll play for a while in the wagon. It works out quite nicely. She's a real peach. People say, "What a goooooood baby." Not like all those bad babies.

Let's see if I can remember everything--

Yes, I can sidecar a crib, and I have one there but all of the sides are up so I can put P in it when he wakes up and buy a little more sleep. I haven't figured out if I want to take the side off again.
Leigh Anne-- having more than one bed might work. Maybe just adding a twin would be fine, but then I'd have to push them together, even the height, etc etc. Who knows. DH has been complaining about back pain so we might get a new mattress and then upgrade to a king.

This is what we were like last night. Woke up at 11pm went to sleep again at 1:30. : I have NO tolerance for crappy sleep. I suck.
But good for Dan giving you a time out!

Wagons = cool but do not have one yet.
So I totally missed the vineyard transition. How long are you there for? Is this your new home or what?

Helen, I couldn't find the thread you were discussing but would like to commiserate. I feed my kid water in a sippy with his solids. So I, too, must be inflicting permanent damage.

SS just left after 2 weeks here. Is it horrible to breathe a sigh of relief? Things are so quiet, and clean. Well, that is, after crazy baby finally went to sleep. I hope he walks soon, maybe that will take care of all of this energy. The worst is that he's so strong that he can almost make my drop him just by wiggling.

Forgot to answer: we still babywear but not as often. He doesn't really like front carries anymore (unless he is sleepy) and I don't really like to face him out because the MT cuts into his legs. He loves back carries and I get good vacuuming done then. Double wearers-- you do a MT on the back and a sling on the front? Darn. Guess I have to buy a freakin sling.

Hope your weekends went well! It's so great being able to check in here.

I have a sneaking suspicion that it is, in fact, teeth. Especially after I gave her some hylands and she crashed out. Tonight she's having a small dose of motrin before bedtime, maybe she'll have some decent sleep and not be so cranky tomorrow.

I love love love watching her toddle around. So cute. Especially in baby capris. Also very much enjoying the babble. She's totally telling me stories and I just don't know the words. adorable.

We still babywear like crazy. Can't afford not to, mostly because I have no help for half the month. The wrap gets used more & more, use a pouch for running errands around town, and I made myself an onbu for other stuff, like tending to horses. Wasn't sure I liked that one at first, but it's growing on me, and I love the fabric I picked, so we'll keep at it.

We still bw here. Evie loves it. I was happy to make that discovery.

She also adores the wagon. Jonathan took her and big brother out for a walk in it a few days ago. I stayed home and cleaned the downstairs. When dh got back, he asked how long he was gone b/c I got so much done! I told him it was amazing what I could accomplish when he took the kids and left for a while!

Megs! We were so there a few nights ago. I have no idea what got into Evie. As soon as we'd put her in her crib, she would pop up and scream. It's so not like her. So we rocked, rocked, rocked and now she seems back to normal. After her normal bedtime routine, dh put her down tonight and she just snuggled right in. Who knows what was going on? She did the same thing at naptime too and an Evie without enough sleep is a little Evie that is a BIG SCREECHING TYRANT! geez, the vocal cords on that kid. I think she's a soprano. :

Sarah, the beach sounds so fun! We usually go to Charleston, but it's not in the cards this year. My uncle has a condo on Smith Mountain Lake though with a plontoon (sp?) boat that we can use. He was supposed to be calling my mom with a list of the dates that are available, so maybe we can go there. I don't know though, it's been nice just hanging out here. Of course, I can do without the 100 degree heat we're supposed to have tomorrow! ick

Hope your weekends went well! It's so great being able to check in here.
I think from here on out when I double sling I will put J on my front in the wrap, and S2 on my back in the MT. At least until J outgrows her, then I'll switch 'em. The wrap is much easier on my shoulders for long periods of time. The sling really started to dig after about 3 hours, and as fidgety as they both were, it was getting pretty uncomfortable. It's also easier for me to nurse in the wrap than it is in the sling.

So, you don't necessarily have to buy a sling. I used the wrap with J from 1wk old on.

Of course, I can do without the 100 degree heat we're supposed to have tomorrow! ick
We have a blast. Every year for 20something years now. Good times.

Sometiems when she burns out walking around/playing, I can put her up on my back and she calms right down...she's been there since she was 6 months old, so it's comforting.

Sorry about the sucky sleep, everyone. I'm not allowed to mention sleep per a previous agreement, but suffice it to say I feel your pain many nights. Teething is fast and furious here, and I can't wait until it's over...which should be inside of the next 6 months for us if she's anything like her brother, and stays on the current eruption rate she's on.


We're back home, ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Nice to get back to 'normal'. Seeing the 'rents is nice, but man is it more stressful there when I'm trying to work.

Of course I had to say she went to sleep like a dream and I was expecting it to last, right. Guess who got up not 2 seconds after I hit post! She was up for at least 3 hours too. J finally went in there and relieved me. He ended up sleeping in the floor. I could her her giggling with glee over the monitor and jumping in her bed. :
