I wonder how long I'm going to have to post here at MDC before I see "bm" and automatically think "breastmilk" and not something else...

Oh I love the rainbow families!!
Funny, cause my sisters and I all look alike, and all of the grandkids look alike. we are a boring family. People even say ryan and I look like siblings. :

My extended family has gone rainbow... one of my cousins married a Samoan after she finished her Peace Corps tour there. They have triplets. Another married one of the football players at her college -- a huge african-american from inner-city Houston. So, there's lots of cappucino kidlets running around at family get-togethers. Not my sister and I, though... ours are very vanilla. And with one cousin being very out & proud now, I guess we're rainbow in another sense of the word!

And I just threw one out a few weeks ago. Doh. Well, it was just the starter one anyway, so not much use for an older baby. I have heard the Lact Aid is more comfortable to use too.

Well, we woke up soaked from a BumGenius this morning! Turns out daddy stuffed it wrong, but still. Sleep...improving... She slept from 9-1, then til 5. Far more reasonable than the every 2 hour biz. I'm hoping the 19-week-gallery-of-horrors is coming to a close. Now that she's 21 weeks She seems to be teething hardcore again.

Yay, multi-quote worked! I admit I am secretly wicked jealous seeing all the people in the May thread use it. I lurk over there sometimes to see what we'll be in for in a month. Anyone else stray?

No straying for me. As far as DDCs are concerned. I finally feel really connected to you guys... no energy left for lurking elsewhere. I go to Fitness/Weight Management and the Washington/Idaho/Oregon forums, though. Sometimes Breastfeeding and Birth & Beyond.

UGH. I am so close to finishing my biomechanics paper that I can taste it. It was WAY more involved than I thought it would be. Not due until next weekend, but if I want to even remotely think I'll do well on the next two exams, I need this time to study. I also have one more writing assignment for my psych class that I *thought* I'd have finished at the end of Sept. Hmmm. So, basically, I wrap up my prerequisites for PT school the day before I move back across the ocean. Which is 13 days before my first PT school application is due.

Phew. OK. MDC study break needs to end.... now.

I still can't multi quote! Please tell me how.

Thanks to everyone who said nice things about my family's new picture....see this is an instance where I would quote each compliment by everyone who said something nice, and then I would give a big ole' thank you. But I don't know how to do that

Candice - A blog! You so smart. Didn't even occur to me, to be honest. Good deal! I'll do that tomorrow.

Lisa - I've never been to DS, but I'll definitely check it out. Thanks for the tip.

Kelly - The pretzels we're referring to (the sin sticks) are pretzel rods (about 7" long) that are covered in caramel, save for a 1" or so part at the bottom to hold on to. Then they're rolled in crushed nuts or crushed pretzel pieces, then dipped in milk chocolate, then covered in sprinkles.

Paddington - Thanks for the business card reminder. I'm gonna order a box of cards on payday.

Our family is very lily white. None of us have procreated outside of the race, and we all look a LOT alike. Even our extended family. All the female grandchilderen have the same nose for crying out loud. B and I have very similar features, so all the kiddos look alike, which is awesome. DD2 looks EXACTLY like me. I've got pictures of the kids in my sig, and I'll try and find a good one of B and I to add to it.

However, our family may be getting a dose of color soon...my uncle and his husband have been approved as foster-to-adopt parents, so we have no idea what our new cousin will look like, how old he/she will be, nothing. They bought a crib, toddler bed, and twin bed, just in case, as well as an infant carseat, toddler seat, and booster seat. They're just a little excited. It's too cute.

Mearaina: hehe, I oafed my way into it. You click the "+quote" button on each post you want to quote. (The one between Quote and quick reply) It should turn orange to show it's being held for you. Then when you go to post reply to the thread, all the posts you wanted to quote will be dumped in your reply. You just edit each post the way you normally would when you quote.

Just want to say
Nothing of interest to say. Yesterday I was feeling sorry for myself because I am not home much. And DH was in a super bad mood because he is tired of being home. Then he rode his bike, and now he is happy.
Still haven't figured out how you're supposed to put babies to sleep. *sigh* My life is ruled by a 4 month old!
My sister is coming to visit for Thanksgiving and it will be the first time she sees Philip! I'm excited. She lives in CO.
And my parents live near Seattle. Lately I have been missing the west. I also have been missing Europe. Maybe it's an "anywhere but here" feeling?

Candice-- good suggestions for Sarah.
Sarah, where is your current business site? And i second what others say-- for Brad
Helen, good news on the sleep. Have you had to give Harper anything for her teething? Also, your blog is convincing me to let DH get a telephoto lens. shame on you!
Megs-- : My mom is a PT and she loves it. You'll get through this transition!
Leigh Anne-- good to see you back again! How is work going, and the SAHP sharing?

All of you talking about CD make me jealous. But DH is adamant, no CD, and since we don't have a washer/dryer in our apt, I understand. But it makes me

Oh, and I forgot something Korin reminded me of:

The first time my parents came to see Sam in the NICU, my dad saw the big styrofoam cup on her shelf that had "Barker BM Warmer" written on it in black magic marker. He got this confused look on his face and turned to me and said, "Um, honey? That does mean breast milk, right? 'Cause why would they be warming her poop?" The innocence was adorable.

Jessica - my site right now is on a master site called etsy.com. It's a craft site, and people can go on and set up their own "shops" to advertise their various crafts. It's a great idea, and wonderful starting off point, but hard to personalize. I'll start working on my blog tomorrow.

Only have a sec but just wanted to say, Sarah - I will try to hook you up with an SNS if I can - sometimes we have extras that either the companies give us to use as teaching/demonstration tools, or else sometimes we have some for sale and I could use my discount and get you one - lemme check! Do you care which brand? I have a good friend who has used an SNS with both of her kids for many, many months (she has low supply due to a thyroid condition - a bunch of us give her some of our extra milk for her to put in it so she doesn't have to use much formula in it) and she has a definite preference for one over the other, so I'll see what I can do

you will get a ton of spam from it, but www.vistaprint.com has cheap biz cards and often gives out offers for free biz cards. if i get an offer (which i should, i get one every other day) i'll forward you the link for free cards. they are great quality, you just pay shipping - i think they basically make their money selling your email address b/c i never got spam at all until i signed up with them...it's always been a good trade off for me though...i've gotten a ton of free for shipping stuff from them - magnets with my kids pix on them as thank-yous, post card announcements (100 full color photo for $4.95 shipping only), biz cards for my husband, magnet calendars. all free except for shipping. PM me your email addy if you're interested and when i get another free offer i'll send it to you.

LeighAnne - vistaprint is the site I'm gonna use anyway. I've ordered from them before, and my e-mail address has a super strong spam filter, so nothing gets through. It's pretty great. You actually don't need an offer in order to get the free cards...they're on the site all the time.

BFM - as I've never used an SNS before, I have no idea what I would prefer, so if you can get one, I'll take what I can get. I'm one of the least picky people you'll ever meet.

I've always wondered about the multi quote thing. Thanks Helen! I still think poo when I see bm too and I've been here for a couple years too I guess its just ingrained.

meiraina, I love those photos!!! Korins right, the colors do remind me of neopolotain ice cream. I never buy that kind, cuz everyone always ends up just scooping up the chocolate and then you have a half eaten carcass of just strawberry and vanilla ice cream left. My fav photo is of the three girls and little L in the middle looking so cute and chubby!!:

sarah, I went to your blog, but where do I go to order those yummy delish sin sticks? I want some I also want to order some for my step mom. Its her birthday today and I wanna send her some. Of course Im a little late, but I never seem to get anybodys gift on time. Then again, they understand...its hard to tote 3 kids around to get some shopping done.

We're gonna do the crib side car thing today. I'll take pics and let y'all see how it works out. Oh, that means we'll have to go to Hobby Lobby to get the foam. Does that mean I have to get out of my pjs? OOhhh, if we go to Hobby Lobby, I can get some more fabric and make another wrap!!! Oh, going to change clothes now!!! YIPEE!!! And hey, Sarah, if you make any moby like wraps, I'll buy 'em from you

I just looked at the calendar and as of Tues, we are busy for 2 weeks straight.

Tues- board meeting at the preschool ( I am vice chairperson)
Wed oversea cooking turkeys for thanksgiving feast at preschool
Thurs LLL (or as dd1 say- the baby meeting)
Fri- the feast, late night crop
Sat- Reconcilation for my 2nd grade ccd class
Monday- conference w preschool teacher
then thanksgiving week and thats everyday! At least dh is off from the Wed before thanksgiving until the following Tues,

My mom bought DD1 Liz the Melissa & Doug sushi set. She has been making sushi now since Fri. She keeps calling us into the sushi store! So I just looked over and Maggie has the pretend cleaver. She wants to do whatever her big sister does. Yesterday I had to break up a disagreement over playsilks.

I knew it would start but not this early. Also they are both girls so this could get really nasty. My father once broke up a shoe fight between my younger sister and I. He also almost got wacked by a heel flying by.

I have been trying to catch up for TWO days! Wow, we love to chat!

I love the jean pouch! Lord knows I've got plenty of old jeans I could try to make one with.

Well, I started back to work on Tues. My 1st day w/ my class was Wed. It went ok. I missed Evie and Caleb like crazy though. On a happier note, I did get 2 oz when I pumped! I know that's not a lot, but I've never been able to get anything at all before, so this is awesome. I switched pumps to an Avent hand pump. If I would have known it worked, I would have forked the moola over for an electric! Oh, and I printed up a sign to tape to my door that has a picture of a cow on it and says, 'when the cow is out, please don't come in!' The first day back, i didn't have anything up, just a closed door and another lady just waltzed right in! she didn't even knock! grr...

disposable email addresses? i set them up with my yahoo account so that i can tell if a website has started spamming me... and if it gets too bad, i can always delete that one and set up a new one....
