Sheri, your dh will totally dig it once he catches some pee on his own
Besides, it's not like you're taking off her dipe and letting her poop on the couch, instead, you can offer the potty when you change her during the day, and don't worry if you never get any pee or poo in there every time, it's the act of offering that keeps their bladder control so you don't have to reteach it when they potty learn.
My niece does the same thing as Mr. C - get up really really close (which of course means Lauren gets distracted and pops off and usually gets squirted in the face). I don't think it's so much an interest in boob as it is an interest in seeing what the baby is doing and being a part of it.
Jeni, hugs for your crazy day, I hope it's a better one today!
Andy, do you have a peri bottle? That's what we do. Keep it by the pot, lean back w/one hand holding those legs, grab bottle w/other hand, squirt poo off bum and into pot. Gosh, I guess any catsup bottle would work too.
Oh Annie, poor Annie, all alone floating in the ocean. Yah 5am I was up, but was in no way interested in the computer.
A song for my birth? Gah, I don't know. I'll have to think a loooong time about that. Something that starts REAAAALLLY SLLOOOOOOOW and then has a lot of crashing and noise and loudness 2/3 through and then quiet again and then ends with a bang.
But as I've started to come to terms w/the birth, "Heaven" by Live resonates with me, and "Little Heaven" by Toad the Wet Sprocket, but I'm going to keep thinking too... I'm sure there is something that fits just right.
Joyce, where in Ohio do you have fam?
GAH Lauren just won't sleep at night. I can feel the bumps of teeth but they aren't even close to coming through. It took her 2 hrs. to go to sleep, woke an hour later, and then I scared her and she cried really hard. I didn't mean to, but at midnight I was just SO tired and worn out from the 2 hrs of nursing to sleep and I had just fallen asleep myself and she was wiggling all over the place and I couldn't get the diaper to fasten again and so I growled. And apparently it was really loud because she started screaming and then I cried because I scared her and we started the nurse to sleep cycle again. Slept 2 hrs. that time, and woke again, and I nursed again and left, at least when I sleep in the other room I get a few hours of not being kicked and wiggled at. I suppose if I weren't such a light sleeper it wouldn't be that bad, but the noise of her feet across the sheets is enough to wake me. Gah!
Going to my parents today, we're going to drive and drive (75 miles...) to get more flowers for my garden. I really like this nursery, and usually I have them fedex my plants to me, but it's too hot now. I could buy things locally, but that's no fun!
