you mamas have been busy today- though i just realized it's already eve/nite for many of you.
we went to town. went to ross and bought some fat clothes for me
dh thought the shorts i looked at were huge... fit perfectly. isn't he sweet?
Az- my boys still share beds on sleepovers... of course they're small still.
Pam- what a crazy adventure you got stck on!!! of course it's when you've left your baby too.... glad everything worked out ok!
Ann- I wanted to take up knitting for that same reason. last year my mom tried to teach me. BUT. she's right handed and I'm left handed and I couldn't do it like she does. I got a book out of the library to help me, but I gave up cuz it was too hard to decipher a book. I crocheted for awhile- made a lot of eyelash yarn things (leis and scrunchies)- but haven't picked that stuff up in awhile. And I just
- esp making quilts
|Who said they breastfeed in the car seat? How do you manage that? Do you kneel on the seat and lean over the baby? I don't think it would be possible with ours.
You need to be in the seat next to the baby. take off your seat belt and contort your body in extremely uncomfortable ways so she can get your boob. If your boobs are big enough, it might not be so horrible, but for me- BLECH!
Andy- thanks for asking about dh. he's ok. he's got this trip coming up next week to thailand, where he's gonna get his bad back worked on. he not only has a huge physical thing going on, but he's got a LOT of emotional things stored up in there. I think the anticipation of the trip is bringing up a lot of things for him. it's good and bad. i think his journey will be transformative.
Az- Elizabeth looks beautiful, I know how hard it is to catch smiles with a digital camera becayse they all have a delay. lame. But you got her and she looks great. I think her hair is lightening.... wasn't it more darker in pics before?
Lisa- I looked at the mamatoto site you posted awhile back adn was gonna get some gauze and try it out. i mean it's so easy! I know where I can get cheap and beautiful colored gauze.
Anyone else feeling the loss of their old selves? I guess it might not apply to those of you who have 2 little ones.... but I've been doing my own thing for a long time now (after putting in some serious mommy time 12-6 years ago). I missed a big birth confeence here on the island this weekend. Major big people were here, but i just didn't feel like Luka and i would be up to listening and being a part of it. when I spoke to my mw buddy last night and she said it was so great, i felt really bummed and slightly resentful of my babe. i'm missing births, and I am in a mw school and have not done any schoolwork....in many ways I LOVE not having all of tjat stuff to do and I love living on baby time. And I'm also sad that I'm not doing teh other. And then I had the opportunity tospeak to Suzanne Arms today (she wrote immaculate deception) and she just summed up my feelings completely. she's one of the ones I missed meeting thiosweekend. sigh.
it'll always be there, it's just my passing feeling right now. I'm certainly NOT upset about not being on call
I knew i'd get here eventually. surprised it took me 8 weeks.
for now I'm just gonna ENJOY my beautiful baby. No one is gonna stop having babies!
thanks for listening
