Korin and Candice... much love, y'all. Much love.

I glanced over the neatest article on the cover of the Living section of our newspaper while at the coffee shop this morning. There is a maternity/nursing shop in an old church in the tiny, tiny farm town of Lind, Washington. They had a picture -- it was the grooviest thing I've ever seen... racks and racks of nursing bras hanging under neo-gothic arches. I guess it's just two images I never expected to see superimposed :-) I liked it.

Alright, enough rambling outta me. Nevie is napping, the contractor is laying floor and blasting the classic rock station. I guess I'm just hanging out.

j is actively nursing through his 3rd letdown this session. :

no wonder the boy's humongrous.

had to pull out the 6-9mo clothes for him. they're big, but 3-6mo are too snug. he's not even 4mo yet.

Katie doesn't stand very much unsupported. She can but she won't. Refuses to walk unassisted now too. Noodle legs if she even thinks you're thinking about it. Whatever. No much for real words either. Every now and then she'll attempt one, and she's really close to "kitty" now. She's said Dada, and she says geegeegee reliably, which mostly means dog we think.

Thanks mamas! We had a fun little party last weekend. All of my family and J's family came in. It was nice. She had one little "friend" here. She's actually the little sis of 1 of Caleb's best friends, so it makes it nice that each kiddo had a playmate here. I'll try to post some pictures of her later. I can't believe she's one! This year went by way to fast.

I'm still trying to find a babysitter. I met with one on Fri and while she seemed nice enough, I didn't 'love' her. She told me that Evie would have to take a nap on a pallet in the floor. Now this is only Sept. I don't think she'll be ready for that then. So, the search continues.

No real words here either. mama, dada (mostly), nana, Aaaweb (we just figured out this was a word when she was shrieking it at Caleb b/c he wasn't paying attention to her). She signs All Done and More, but she actually uses the milk sign for more. Caleb was a late talker, and while everybody says, you'll be wishing for some quiet, I suppose it's true b/c the kid talks more than anybody I've ever met. And his answer to why he asks so many questions is "I want to know a lot mommy." So, at least he knows why he's asking. But I remember worrying so much with him. I actually made my ped refer me to an audiologist so I could rule out ear problems with him. Of course, there was nothing wrong with his hearing, he was just too busy climbing and playing to talk much. Now he's got it all down.

My head hurts. Every Tues. for the last month (at least) I've been getting horrible migraines. Well, today it came a day early. I've been asleep since 8:30. Then J woke me up at 2 talking about carpet samples. I have no idea what he was dreaming. I seriously got Evie to sleep, and went to bed myself. I think I need to go get them checked out. My thoughts are they may be coming from the tightness in my neck and shoulders and that a chiropractor would help. It's just so hard to find the time to go. But I guess I need to or shut up about it. Schools almost over, at least I'll have time then. 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks.

Ok, enough incoherent posting from me. I'll try to get back on soon, but no promises until after school's out.

[OFF TOPIC]

Hi everyone. Lousy couple days for us here. D has pneumonia, poor little guy. He's had a cough for quite some time, but we were chalking it up to allergies. It got way worse on Saturday night, and he had a fever spike to 103.7 on Sunday night around 10pm, was breathing fast and shallow; we had a horrible ER experience (or rather, non experience) as we were there for hours and were never seen, the kids were miserable and needed sleep, and when Jason asked when he might be seen, the nurse didn't even look at him and said, "well, there are 4 people ahead of him." Jason said, "You realize this is a feverish, coughing, hard breathing 3-year-old, right?" And she didn't say anything. So we took the kids home to get some MUCH needed sleep and just took shifts watching over him. We called his doctor's office Monday AM and they had us in, a chest x-ray, and diagnosed inside of an hour-and-a-half.

I've never had a bad hospital experience like that. In the 2+ hours we were there, they only took ONE person back to be treated. And nobody seemed to care that there were a few people who really seemed to need some help. How awful. We wrote a letter to them - won't likely get a response, but at least we feel better. And this is the same hospital that I had a gret experience at for Kait's birth...so who knows what was going. I can understand if they had a lot of traumas come in, but someone in the ER waiting room walk-in area could have at least shown some compassion for those of us sitting there for hours. The one guy sitting next to us had gotten there shortly before 8, and was still there when we left around 12:30am. Ridiculous.


Annnnnnnyway. Many hours, not much sleep. He seems to be getting a little better already, thankfully. His fever is down and his breathing is better, so that's all good. But I think he might have given himself a hernia with all the hard coughing, cause he says he hurts "there". Sigh.

I think she has no interest in walking. It's the prewalking stuff I'd like to see -- the squatting and standing. But I guess that all comes together, so... oh well.

And I know it's not a race. I'm not exactly worried about her getting there before other kids -- just age-appropriately. I freak out about gross motor skills and have lately begun to convince myself that I have ruined her with my red wine habit ;-)
hey there - D pulled up to stand at 6 months, but then didn't crawl until 10 mos, didn't cruise until about 11 mos, and didn't walk until 14 mos - and he didn't "practice" walking at all, he just.walked. one day. And hasn't stopped since - he's very coordinated, strong, and agile for his age. So I know you *know* no worries, but just wanted to give you another, "no worries"!

I think I kind of agree with Pad on this one, K is all too excited to keep up with big bro and that's why she's figuring out walking sooner. She's taking up to 10 steps unsupported now, and I'm floored. Just a couple "words" (mama and dadadada, and "DA!" for big bro, "ya" for yes and "nen nen nen" for no) but I'm not sweating that either since D didn't start meaningful words until around 14-15 mos....and now....what's that cliche about hopign for 2 years they would talk and then wishing for 16 more they would shut up? : Just kidding, I love his chatty chatterbox.


And sorry about all those punk boobs out there giving you all problems.

Happy birthday to any babes I missed over the past few days (I see I missed Evie), and Happy Birthday Penelope today!!

And congrats lc81002 on your nursing triumph! We're still going on about 6 times a day, so no signs of stopping soon yet here.

Re: bday here, we're having some family and friends over for BBQ, but that's about it. I think I'm going to do a daisy cake with mini cupcake ladybugs (I really like making fun cakes), so I'll carry the daisy/ladybug thing to whatever I can. A few balloons cause our kiddos love balloons, maybe some streamers. A crown that she won't wear cause she hates things on her head. Pretty standard stuff. I think we're going to get her a Groovy Girl doll, but that's about it. She has so much stuff to play with that was D's, and I'm sure people will ignore me even though I told them that she has enough and doesn't need anything (and even if they do listen, we really DON'T need any more "stuff" so that would be great), so no real present plans here either. Just looking to party with some loved ones and celebrate her first year here!

Just wanted to say my daughter had identical birth stats to your son, but she was born 2 days later. We had a lousy start with nursing too, but I think she now plans to nurse until she's 8. It seems like the more food she eats, the more she nurses. whaaa?

Heather, so sorry you had that horrible experience. Glad your guy is getting better.

Helen, Talula ate more food yesterday than she's ever eaten...and then nursed 18,000,000 times last night. WTH? She did take a couple of fabulous naps yesterday though.

yesterday was FUN.

we had to leave the house by 6:30 in order to get to Annapolis by 8:30 for B's hearing, which meant getting up at 5:30 so that I could get dressed, then pump, then change and nurse j while b changed s2 and packed the diaper bag.

we got home around noon and b went to work, which is when all hell broke loose. if j was nursing, s2 would scream. if s2 was sitting o my lap, j would scream. i can't hold them both simultaneously 'cause s2 hits j over and over and over and over and..you get the idea.

this continued from 12-6:30. at 6:30 i finally nursed j down for a nap, gave s2 a bath and tried to put her to bed. no dice. b called, talked to s2 on the phone and asked her to please go night-night, and 20 minutes later she did. : i tried to put the child to bed 7 times, and no matter what i did, she screamed, then she sat on my lap and screamed while she hit me. the second i got her down, j woke up, and continued to fuss/scream the entire time i was trying to make dinner. anybody ever tried to dice an onion while bouncing a baby strapped to your chest? them's some skills.

the instant b walked in the door (at 8:45) j started cooing and laughing. :

i'm glad these days are few and far between.

katiejon1. Glad you all had a nice bday. Sleeping on a pallet on the floor? Does she mean like a mat or something? Anyways, hope you find a good babysitter!

The4OfUs. Man, what a crazy night. So sorry you had such a bad experience. ER's are nightmares 90% of the time I think. But I'm glad he's starting to feel better. Poor little guy.

Elijah seems to do more with his left too. I'm hoping it sticks so he can be a lefty like me. Marley is writing with her right but eats with her left. I know it could take up to age 7 to really know what hand they will write with though.

O just started to let go while standing and has been pulling to stand for a month now. She can climb stairs like nobody's business tho,has no ambition to actualy go walk anywhere. we get dada all day, and baba (brother) and woof, more like ooofff.

I tried to nurse Evie before we left the house this a.m. b/c my boobs felt like they were going to explode. you would have thought that I was trying to skin her the way that she reacted. Oh the screams! : So, even though I didn't want it to be over this soon, I think I'm going to have to throw in the towel.

Thanks for all the love ladies. He's napping right now, which is good.

I have a local mom friend dropping off some essential oils that are supposed to be good for coughs to see if we can help with that, cause I'm worried he might have coughed himself a hernia (yes, he's been coughing really hard ) as he is complaining of a sharp pain "down there", but I can't tell if he means his belly or groin area, and he won't let me near him to check to see if I can feel anything while he's coughing. Greeeeeaaaaaaat. Could be just a pulled muscle, I hope - imagine the end result needing a hernia surgery after having pneumonia. OK, I have to stop thinking about that. The chances are pretty slim, right? Right? I was able to get some yogurt in him via a smoothie earlier today, and will keep doing that while he's on the antibiotics.

Cute Penelope!

What kind of cake is everyone making? I am thinking blueberry muffins. Am lazy. She is tolerating cooked dairy, so I have...options. How bizarre. I bought a "1" candle today, and it really hit me that this is happening.

Heather, he may just mean his abs hurt from coughing. I literally couldn't move from the pain when I had pneumonia. Adults get painkillers! It was seriously worse than my first weekend snowboarding, which was previously hardest ab workout ever. Hope he is on the mend.

Katie, this is a really common age for a nursing strike. It ain't over til it's over. How frustrating for you. Sorry mama.

That's actually what they do at the kick-arse Montessori school where I'll be taking Nevie. It's part of the Montessori principles of not 'caging' kids in. Same principle as co-sleeping families that have a family bed low to the floor so babies don't get hurt when (not if -- we all know better than that now!) they roll off. So, while Nevie does her solo sleeping in a crib here at home (before I bring her in with me after the first or second wake-up at night), I'm happy about the pallet thing at the school. They have the pallets set up all the time in a separate sleeping room -- another thing I like about it. Seems nice that the babies will always have a dark and quiet place to snooze.

Anyway, now I'm rambling a bit. Just thought I'd throw in my alternate perspective on the floor pallet thing.

Helen... while I love to bake, I don't plan to for this occasion. There is a bakery down the street and I am madly in love with their food and the friendly, chatty women that tolerate my adult-conversation-starved self. They will be getting my biznitch for a lovely chocolate cake w/ raspberry filling. I think I'd like orange and fuschia flowers on top. I figure the chocolate/raspberry thing is OK since Nevie will probably only ingest about one teaspoon of the darn thing. Might as well have something us adults think is way yummy...

i'm goin to make a watermelon cake for hannah's bday! just cut the watermelon shaped like a cake and maybe put some type of topping on it and decorate it with other fruits... then for all the adults/older kiddos i might buy some birthday cake ice cream but we'll see... i'm really trying to avoid sweets as much as possible.... for her bday we're going to have a bbq outside (hopefully) and just have a few friends over.. on her actual birthday tho i am making some sort of pasta meal with noodles as it's a tradition representing long life...i won't do cake that day either..

I'm not sure what kind of cake i'm going to make.... something wheat free of course. i'm trying to avoid wheat till she's two due to family hx of allergies. I am thinking of making a fun shape or whatever, but it may just be square. square is funny, right?

I have to make two cakes. : I haven't even gotten all the RSVPs and somehow my family members have too many kids (3 to 4 each) and I'm already up to 21 attendees. sigh.... Good thing I only sent out like um, 10 invitations....
