Wish I could do good recaps like I used to in the due date cave but with 30 pages of posts... :LOLhttp://www.mothering.com/discussions...15#post3216815
I SNIPed (supplement-nursed in public) today!!! (No small feat for me, I always joke that by the time I get comfortable nursing him with the SNS in front of people he will be ready to wean!) Steph, Cheryl and I and our kiddos went to the children's museum and they have this great area for kids 6-48 mos old - no kids over 4 allowed!! - and they have, in this area, a dedicated NURSING ROOM with a rocker, a footstool, an endtable, and this incredibly wonderful poster of all of these mamas and babies breastfeeding. And it has a dutch door so that you can shut it to keep little ones in or out and still have the top half open so that you're connected to the world. So cool!!
The weather was finally gorgeous today. We had bagels for lunch and we sat outside under a tree in the breeze. Near our table was a guy - also under the same tree - who had a parrot along. When the guy rang a bell the parrot would talk. It kept saying "okay!" and "buh-bye now!" and the kids were stunned
NC mamas glad you had a good time, I'm jealous!!
Stacey good luck with the sleep thing, your sis sounds like a gem. Kristin I know how you feel about the crib thing... Tristan and I both sleep much better with him in a separate bed. We had him in the co-sleeper - Jo moved him to it when I had mastitis and he slept great in it - but lately he keeps pulling himself up and we were worried he would topple out, so he's in a crib and he likes it just fine, especially that he can wake up and crawl around a bit while he's waiting for one of us to become conscious! I do enjoy when he flops over asleep on the futon in the den in the morning (after having gotten up way too early...) and we sleep next to each other for an extra hour or two like we used to. I'm hoping that when he's bigger he'll bless us with jumping back into bed with us in the mornings or sneak in during the night. we both love snuggling him
The cats don't know what to think of Tristan crawling. They don't expect him to reach them... and then suddenly he's there grabbing at their ears. Sydney got a chunk of fur pulled out of herself today and Eddie took great offense at being chased around the dining room. They both required great consolation but oddly enough neither will sleep in bed with us.
I can't believe it's June tomorrow and I *know* I won't be up early enough to get the rabbit rabbit... probably Savannah checking in at 3 AM after sewing a diaper and crocheting a rug.
love you Savannah!! :LOL
