Spotted socks, whoda thunk it?
Jeni, rofl on the swing to leg waxing. Gosh, I need my eyebrows done. And forget the legs and bikini, one of these days I'll want to go swimming or to the lake and I'll have to get around to it.
Joyce, no kidding, must be a figment of my imagination that I had a baby or something. Some pedis INSIST there is no way mama milk can be anything but hypoallergenic. I know it's a bad place, but the allergies board at babycenter has a lot of mamas who are bfing their kids and have food issues. That's the one reason I keep going back there...
As for your dh, I just couldn't remember from the pics if he was or not, and I remember you asking if you were the only one here... as for where you are from, I just keep remembering the fights at my school.. the Mexican vs Puerto Rican uglies. Not exactly the texmex border, but I have good friends in Bisbee Az.
Andy, suuuuuure. I think you just want that last hundred or so posts to get a senior title.
Hey, I have a tan longie with a monkey on the butt you are welcome to. Lauren will never fit in it again, I think I used it once. Of course it was gently loved when we got it, but we're done lovin' it.
Jessi, you are a true diaper stalker!
Joyce again, yah what Karen said! Actually with Lauren, the more I talk to our families about it, the more "suspected" allergies come up - my mom had a bad reaction to eggs and so never got vaxed as a kid, my grandmother has reactions to eggs and dairy, and my mom never liked dairy, which may be why I never reacted to it - she avoided it because she had an allergy, and so I wasn't exposed until I was over a year and so it wasn't so hard on my body. I must say, although I miss cheese, life w/o dairy has been good to me. I feel pretty healthy.
So this morning I went to my parent's house to take care of the cats - ended up scrubbing cat yak out of their new carpets, Noodles gets anxiety issues when they leave her alone, so there is always fresh yak. Thankfully I only have to go there tomorrow, my brother is in charge all weekend and until they get back. He'll clean more yak than I in the long run. Came back and took Lauren to the chiro, oh my I love the chiro, I feel so much better.
And then ate lunch - pasta salad, except I didn't have half the things I wanted to put in there, so I ended up with cold pasta w/chicken and red peppers and dressing. Was yummy though. And it's my lucky day, my friend called and wanted to get lunch and go to the park, so she picked up a sandwich for me from Panera and we met at the park and we ate and strolled, Lauren actually sat in the stroller and laughed at people and watched the trees blow and was so HAPPY. My baby has been exorcised and the evil spirits are gone. She only nursed a quick snack when we first got there, and then wanted nothing to do with me the rest of the time. She didn't really want to nurse to sleep but she can't figure out how to go to sleep w/o nursing yet, so I pulled the lone bottle out of the fridge (pumped on Tues. when I was SO full) and she took an ounce and then got frustrated and nursed for 2 min. right to sleep. She's been sleeping for just over an hour. But WOW this is so different. Last week she was sucky all the time. Now she's so hands off.
Baby bling - my friend who I met with today has 18 month old and is pregnant, they are building a new house and plan on moving just after this babe is born. So I *offered* to store all of their big bulky baby stuff for them while they clean out the house and get it ready to sell... I'm so *nice* hahaha. Now we have a bunch of bling, a 'saucer, jumper, some noisy battery toys, etc. that we are keeping until Lauren is nearly a year. Then her babe will be ready for them and Lauren will be on to bigger and better things. I think all the world should function like this.
Going to get the bling from my car while the babe sleeps, and I've got to think about making dinner.
