Lucky dh, Jessi! Wish I had the nuts to buy one...but I DID get my convertable Mei Tai yesterday (and my maya today
: but the purple and green one, berry pretty!), and we used it for walks today and yesterday ... WAHOO!!! It's way easier and more comfortable than the one Karen made (no offense
!) by default, I think. Just less material. I recommend it for the hot weather folks, 'cause it's even less material than a wrap! And oh so easy on off, tho I might get buckles for the bottom straps (like the big backpack buckles), make it even easier! I don't seem to be able to get the bottom as snug as I'd prefer once the baby is in, and I'm not happy untying and retying it while he's in it... anyway, it's awesome. We haven't had to resnap the blankie on, as it's warm and muggy here now. I think eventually it'll be just as "bulky" as the homemade MT and then it's just a toss up - one for the car, one for home? Woohoo! Very happy.
I figured out why I'm getting blockages. DUH!!! I got new bras before the baby was born, bravados, I loved them when nursing Beca, so I thought they'd be great...and they would be if I'd gotten the right SIZE! I totally got it wrong - wrong chest and wrong bust, and the smaller bust size cuts right across my nipple. I was just going to suck it up 'cause they're expensive, and jeeze, it wasn't hurting or anything...but NOW I've got what's going on! And thankfully I just got 2 new tie dyed ones that I ordered a couple of weeks ago (I am SO loveing our mail carrier these days...just wait, the list goes on!), so now I have a few that DO fit and I just need to be careful not to put the not fitting ones back in the drawer. WHEW! Hopefully no more blocked ducts. WAY sucky. It's better, btw, but not 100% because I went and squeezed (and OMG is that awful!!!) and now there's bruising and a bit of a crack that need to heal. I'm just putting some pure Vit. E. on it for the time being. Hopefully it'll be good by Monday. breathe.
NICOLE! Thank you so much for the great cookbooks!!! I may pass one of them on to Annie, who may or may not want it, but there ya go. She can save it for next year's yard sale
! The slow cooker book is EXACTLY what I've been searching for. Simple and good. And most of the recipes already have no wheat/dairy, so I'm good to roll! YEA!!!! Thank you SO MUCH!!! So sorry about dh and the freezer. My dh does dumb stuff like that too. Gotta say, your rant was pretty gentle on the forgetfull soul. If mine lost my milk that way, I'd be FUUUUURious. That is not a pretty site. So hugs, mama. You are needing a BREAK!!! not a bust
. I'm glad Will is improving. colds suck. Good reason to
and be chill w/him! Also you could nurse him lots in bed and build up supply that way, too!
Something I wanted to post to Karen, but now I forget what. I think it was on the old site, and it's just miles out of my head. sorry
Oh, that I grew up in a family w/three kids and it wasn't BIG, but it was big, yk? stuffed in the middle seat in the wagon, it felt sorta ... big to me.
Kathy - welcome back to the fold, mama! Good to have you back!
more to post but my fella woke up crabby
time to go try out the maya around the block!
