Liz-- I thought Sam's grandfather was gaffer, too? I did know of thier Olde English origins, but the fact is, Mike is just really into Tolkien. Has been for years. :LOL

Smithie-- I'm totally in awe of one-boob nursers. I think it'd make me crazy.

QoC-- My sister gave BooBah a little bit of meat about two weeks ago. BooBah very promptly gave it all back. :LOL So no more meat for a while. :LOL She loves things that have been soaked in meat gravy, though; especially potatos.

Goodness, I could have used a beer this week. It seemed like one long day after another. Ah, well, at least the kids are all asleep.

Mike's mother bought BeanBean a doll! He's absolutely perfect, I'll have to take a picture of him tomorrow. BeanBean was very pleased, but still wanted to snuggle with BooBah tonight. He was kind of tired to be meeting a new "person," though, so we'll just reintroduce them in the morning. I'm sure he'll end up with a name like "Mitsubishi" or "P.T. Cruiser" or maybe even "Chevrolet," just like Ramona's doll. :LOL We've already got a bear named "Saturn," and he named ChibiChibi's bear "Windstar." There's a definite car theme going on. :LOL

My parents are grandma & Grandpa. Kevins parents were, too.... until Roland started getting confused (read: upset when we got to their house, because he was expecting to see my mom) I thought up GranDora & GrampOle for them & Kevin liked it, so we started calling them that. GranDora doesn't like it, she still calls herself Grandma, but she hasn't said anything, so we pretend we don't know. My grandparents are Nan & PaPaLou. My grandpa just wanted to be called Lou (his name) and my Grandma was insisting he be called PaPa. It was sort of funny because they were both adament & it was getting to the point where they were *almost* getting mad at one another when I said "How about both... PaPaLou?" and they both loved it Oh and they are 68 & 72, I think... Grandma was 19 when she had dad & dad was 21 when I was born & I'm 27... grandpa is 3 or 4 years older than grandma.

Caitlin is blowing raspberries everytime I blow my nose :LOL I broke down & sent Kevin out for some cough syrup last night. I was coughing until there was no air left in my lungs, and then taking a breath & coughing some more. Thats too much, especially when it's evening & you're trying to nurse a baby to sleep.

This morning Roland came & snuggled in with us, and after I was done nursing Caitlin, she was doing her "Bla Bla" thing everytime Roland said something... he was on the other side of me, so I rolled her over me to see him, then she started giggling & Roland said "I love my baby soooooo much!" over & over. They played Row Your Boat while Kevin & I dozed... kind of. That game needs alot of supervision.

Last night, Kevin was out at Rolands bedtime, so I brought Caitlin in & she laid with us for storytime. She was super excited, kicking her legs & giggling. Every couple of sentences, she'd say "AAAAHHH!!!!! and I'd stop reading & say "Stop it Caitlin! Roland Can't hear the words when you do that." or "Caitlin, were trying to read this story and you have to be quiet now!" in a really naggy voice and then start reading again. Roland thought that was hillarious!! Of course, the more he laughed, the more she shreiked. Kevin came home about 1/2 way through so he got to see them being cute!

Ro has a fever. I think it is tooth related, though he has felt out of sorts ever since we took a walk yesterday morning and it was COLD out. (For us, I think it was over 30).

I didn't have grandparents to speak of either. My mom's mom died when I was 2 and her dad basically shut down when that happened. He is Papa Wilbur but I don't think I've seen him in...oh, I saw him after I was married but before Tain was born! We took a hillbilly family picture. Him sitting in the middle on a lawn chair holding a budweiser. I'll see if I have that pic anywhere and link it to you. It's really funny. I think that was about the time of my supposed "chunky blonde highlights" which translated to a terrible bleach blonde.

My dad's dad just died last year but I haven't seen those grandparents since I was about 10 and hadn't had any communication for about 7 years. My grandma Korda (last name) is still alive.

Both of dh's grandparents are alive, his grandma is a little funny, though. She had some massive brain bleeds so she's a little off, but she really loves us and the kids. His dad's parents..similar situation to my mom's, they got a divorce and grandpa remarried and didn't have anything to do with his first family. They lived in the same town and never saw dh or his sister. Really weird. After the divorce, his grandma got demensia and was crazy for a long time before she finally died 4 years ago. I never met her.

So I guess my kids have 4 grandparents and 5 greats, but only 2 greats they have a relationship with. My favorite "great" by far is dh's uncle Chuck. He is so awesome and really funny. He sent us a card for Rowan's birth "to pay tribute to the mountain heir", so Ro has been Prince Rowan ever since. When Tain was born he sent a card that said "Thanks for making me great!".

How are you doing Donna?

Ro was loving solids for a while but it made him constipated and ever since he won't touch them.

poopy dipe, gotta go

Yeah. Unfortunately, I didn't think about it until I'd finished my coffee! Maybe this afternoon. I've been eyeing the liquor cabinet pretty hard today, and I must say it's looking pretty good. We've got some Grey Goose vodka, some really, really good tequila, Bailey's, etc. For some reason I'm really wanting some type of flavored martini. I do have everything I need for a Vodka Collins or margarita. I might just go out for a drink later this evening though.

Urrrrgh. I don't think I actually drank a whole BOTTLE of wine last night, but I got a little closer to that mark than I'm comfortable with. Now I feel all dry in the eyes, etc.

But on any regular morning, I'd be all about the Bailey's-in-the-coffee fastasy. I that stuff.

: Yes, I meant to say MAY monkeys fly out of his butt. But if I had monkeys, I would definitely send them to harass that stupid doctor in the general region of his butt. Because he is a great big jerk. The idea than anybody CHOOSES an HMO - arrrgh. I got into a big fight on the other board I frequent for not supporting socialized medicine in the US that only offers and HMO-style option. Called greedy and selfish and so one. But when it comes right down to it, I'd rather be the greedy, selfish bitch who can pick her own hospital and see any specialist she wants and get any test she wants, and I'd like to see those privileges made available to everybody.

I think "My monkeys fly out of his butt" should become jargon. It's magnificent.

So now you can say, "My monkeys fly out of your butt!" in rage. I shall use this at the bank drive-through.

Rowan slept about three hours at a time again and for those first three I got some things done around the house, went to bed at around 3 am and stayed in bed late, being bothered to nurse of course, etc.

At the moment he is in the front yard on a picnic blanket with his sister, enjoying a cool breeze and blowing bubbles in the sun. While he doesn't seem to be making words as such, he is showing he understands rather a lot of what we're saying. It's pretty cool.

Liz, you make me want to have kids 10 years apart. I love some of the descriptions you've given of the two of them together. That's all I've time to post today...I forgot I'd made plans today three times so I've got three sets of obligations! Egads where's my mind?

Okay, I think Caitlin is officially cruising now. A while ago She was on her tummy on the kitchen floor, and Roland started crawling around her ina circle. She swiveled around & around on her belly so she was sort of chasing him around the circle. Then just now, she was on her back, and scooching along pushing herself with her feet!

Isn't cruising when they're standing holding on and migrating around that way? I thought the wiggling not-quite-crawling was "creeping." I'm confused now.

Whatever it's called, R is really moving while standing holding onto things, and torturously crept (not really crawled) across my bed to get something (the maglite).

I know just which bank teller I'm going to use the monkey line on, too.

the sleep fairy left. goodness gracious I am tired. Please tell me they eventually sleep!?!?! DH is being awesome, he's going to come home from work on his lunch break so I can take a hot bath and soak some of my exhaustion away.

on a happier note, I caught R "reading" a book to herself this last week--she was turning the pages of her board book and jabbering away. I laughed so hard! She's developing more and more personality every day too, I could just weep at the miracle of her sometimes.

I keep forgetting to ask whether there's another baby in the group who doesn't sleep alone at all yet. If I leave her, any noise or anything will wake her instantly, but if I'm there, she can sleep through most anything. So I never leave her, which is OK because I can take work with me and sit there while she sleeps, or read in bed at night, but I just wonder if I'm the only one.

BooBah will sleep alone, but BeanBean wouldn't until he was much older-- like, 12 months.

Same as Rynna-Ro will sleep alone but Tain never did and even now that we are starting him in his own bed (at 3 yo) he'll wake at least twice and need someone to come in and cuddle him. I don't think it is a first child thing, though. I think it is just coincidence. My kids were both like that from birth and my parenting adapted to the situation instead of creating it.

Alcohol....mmmmmmm.....beer sounds good, even in the morning!

Liz-I love you! You are so funny!
Smithie-same to you too!

Don't even get me started about the bank. Is everyone who mans the drive-up totally retarded? My dh definitely thinks so. Arg.

Ro still has a fever. And that tooth popped through. I'm giving it 2 more teeth, but if he gets a fever every time, it will definitely be teeth and not coincidence. God, I hope it is coincidence, a fever of 103.9 for 2 days every time he gets a tooth is not my idea of a good time. It breaks in about 5 hour cycles too, so even when we give him meds, they don't always do their job (lowering it just enough for him not to cry incessantly). Between Ro's whatever this is and Tain's new bed, both dh and I aren't getting any sleep. He has been sleeping in the living room so Tain can find him easily when he wakes at night. He is really going to extra mile with this and he is getting a lot less sleep than I am. But in the end, Tain responds to change better coming from dh than from me. I can think of a million possible reasons for this, but why bore you with them?

Have a great day! (And that is really exciting about Caitlin!)

I switched to Citizen's bank recently, and I have to say that their drive-through tellers seem to be less moronic than most. :LOL

[rant] I've had more problems with regular, in the bank tellers than drive ups in general, thoguh. How many times must I say that my 6 month old does not want a lollipop?! Then I get a look like they want to call CPS because I"m depriving the kid of candy. : [/rant]

Hello mamas!

Lily is happily playing in her exersaucer right now so I have a couple of minutes to actually type two handed!

I've been making longies out of recycled sweaters from the thrift store this weekend! SO easy and they are coming out great. I'll post pics later. It seems like no matter what dipe I put on her she leaks at night so I decided I needed to make some nice wool pants to keep us all dry!

We have Lily's crib side-car'd to our bed. She starts the night in there and then when she wakes to nurse I bring her over with us. Last night for the first time she crawled over into our bed all by herself! It was so cute. All of the sudden...there she was staring at me! DH was like...can ya blame her...it's much better over here all snuggled up with mama and papa!

Doh. Exersaucer has lost it's appeal. More later...

Erin, I liked the link in your sig line....wish I had something to give.

Ro has strep (well, the ER doctor thinks so). He said it is really unusual for babies to get strep. He didn't elaborate on that comment. It really has me wondering, I thought babies had their mamas immune system until they weaned? Ro certainly has his daddy's. I'm not going to bore you all (and I don't have the time) to tell you everything, but the doctor was really cool and very honest about how effective antibiotics would be in treating it (as in, not effective). He offered his opinion, that we might be giving him ab for no reason but if that was few and far between in his life, it wouldn't do lasting damage. So I had him write it out and then dh and I could decide if we wanted to fill it or not. I gave Ro what was probably unneccessary ab when the boys were so so ill last month so I REALLY don't want to give them now and the ER doc said that the strep will resolve itself without any help in 4-5 days anyway. Tain woke from his nap this evening with a high fever. I am glad to know that I don't need to take him in or struggle with him about taking ab. I just keep the pain meds level and wait it out...

So I may be gone for a few days, wish me luck!

Okay, not to be all paranoid and weird or anything, but this is one of the crazy things that I've researched a fair bit. My siblings used to get strep *constantly*, and it was all because I (never symptomatic) was a carrier; after I was treated with abx, my sibs and classmates stopped getting sick.

A few years later, my siblings all started getting strep throat again. After two of my classmates got sick and my brother and sisters were all sick for the second time, I figured it was probably not a coincidence. My mother agreed, took me in and lo and behold I had another positive culture. I asked the doctor about it, because pennicillin tastes absolutely foul, even the pills. Did I have to take it, or was it enough for me to quarrantine myself from my siblings? (I'd just read a book with a quarrantine in it. I was such a geeky kid. :LOL) It wasn't, he said, because the sore throat wasn't what they were treating when they prescribed the antibiotics. He told me that the sore throat will go away on it's own in a fairly short time, but sometimes people get infections in the membranes around thier hearts from the strep bacteria, and those infections could be very serious. Thus, despite the fact that I never had a sore throat or a fever or felt any ill effects, it was still possible for me not only to be sick but to be *very* sick, and I still had to take the antibiotics.

At any rate: pennicillin has never been prescribed to treat strep throat which will, as the doctor said, generally resolve itself in a few days. The pennicillin is actually to prevent a very rare and very dangerous complication of strep. It happens very very infrequently, but back in the day when nobody was thinking about antibiotic resistant bacteria it made more sense to prevent the complication (and make parents feel like they were doing something to help the sore throat go away) than to chance it. It's really really reeeeeallly rare, something like .001% (I'm not positive about the number, but I could probably find it for you), but it's there.

Due to my history of occult strep infections, I tend to be somewhat paranoid about it, probably more than I ought to be, but there you have it.

My understanding is that babies have mama's immune system while they are exclusively breastfed - once they start eating other foods that's compromised somewhat. I'm really psycho about antibiotics, and I haven't taken them since 1995 (except for some antibiotic eye drops in 1997). It seems like every time I go to the doctor for anything - especially in college - they would give me a script for them and I would explain that I don't take antibiotics because of the problems associated with our country overprescribing them. And - I kid you not - every single time the doctor said, "Well, you probably don't need them anyway, so don't worry about it." !!!

We've taken big steps backward as far as sleeping goes. I don't understand it - at 2 months Killy was routinely sleeping 4-6 hours straight when I put him down for the night, then waking to nurse and then sleeping another 2-3 hours before waking again. Now I'm lucky if I get 3.5 hours the first go - and often not that much! I guess that this is his adjustment to starting out in the crib. When he was sleeping like that he was in our bed full-time. I would totally keep him in our bed full time now, but since we're ttc I'm thinking about how to manage a toddler and baby in the bed together - and I think it would be easiest if Killy slept at least some in his room, and I don't want to make any rushed changes whenever baby #2 comes along. Maybe I'm nuts for thinking so far ahead...

And, Killy has now learned to climb stairs! I can't believe that he just really started crawling last Monday (he was working on it for weeks before then, but it wasn't until last Monday that he started crawling exclusively, instead of creeping/crawling/rolling), and tonight he climbed the stairs with no problem. We have baby-gates, of course, but we were there with him while he followed the cat who sat smugly at the top of the stairs. He figured it out pretty quick, though, so she's no longer safe there!

Oh and about my siggy link...

I don't actually *know* Adina personally. But anyone who has hung around the TTC threads in the last three years can't help but want to help her!! She is so sweet and positive and SO supportive of everyone else. Just thought I'd do what I could to help get some more traffic to her site.

Rynna- My mom had an untreated case of strep that turned into "something" fever nad has caused her to have a heart murmer that they monitor pretty closely. Strep is about the only thing we treat w/ antibiotics.


It's snowing like crazy here, which is a good and a bad thing. It's good because my dh has decided to just take the day off! It's bad because I had a couple of "former life" friends that were going to come over and bring lunch. We haven't had a lunch in a while. It might work out though because maybe w/ dh home I might be able to meet them at a restaurant closer to where they both live.
