I totally get that, really!! It's more of a question of semantics... Not "endorsing" cloth diapers is a weird choice of words. I think it would've been more logical to say "we are here to discuss breastfeeding, other subjects can be addressed after the meeting." Because saying that you don't endorse (as in approve) something kinda makes me think you're against it, you know?

Aaaaah She woke up a few hours later happy as a clam.
Girls smell like vanilla ice cream, yum! Oh wait, so did liam Actually, I find liam smelled more like a baby than romi... I used to sniff the boy non-stop. She doesn't really smell (and I mean that in the good sense of the word!) that much.

& just so you know, There ARE leaders that WORK outside the home, use bottles & pacifiers, Use disposables & strollers too!! We are just like other mothers, really we are!

Oh, I totally understand that, and that's what I assumed the reason for her saying that. It was interesting, though, because at the beginning of the meeting she said 'LLL is about supporting breastfeeding and attachment parenting'. And actually, the conversation was after the group was over, another girl had asked me privately, and it really just shut down the conversation. Also, everyone there used cloth, except one girl who was talking to someone else at the time.

Anyway, not important! I still enjoyed myself!

And hey, did I hear someone say Romi is cuter than Evangeline?! Is someone looking for a fight!?

He sat up!!!!!!!

I'm in shock I wasn't expecting this for another month or so (even though he has been "almost" sitting for a few weeks).

I set out a blanket on our front porch this afternoon to watch for daddy and he fussed when I laid him down so I put him in a sitting position and he seemed so stable I let go; and he stayed upright! then he did it a few more times for 30 or more secs - sometimes with one hand on the floor to ballence! Yikes!

Yay! Arlo has been sitting the last couple of days too. I couldn't believe it. I still thought he was too young to try. I can't believe how fast he's growing...
He's also watching when we eat like a little vulture and his favourite toy is a spoon, so I don't think it will be too long before he's eating solids.

Awww, ultimate, that last one of her is adorable!!!!

I wish I could do the challenge...I work till 3pm filling in a shift for someone. I plan on telling the owner that it's the last shift I'm going to work, just as soon as she gets back from her carribean cruise. I had already told her that I was only going to do the beer order, but she scheduled me to work for 2 days while she was gone. I got out of one and a half of the shifts, so when she gets back, that's it. I've bartended there for 3 years, and loved it, but I'm a bit busy now.

Hi all! Just thought I'd pop my head in the door and say hello to all the other April mamas. Things here are good, finally. We survived some crazy medical stuff, my baby and me, but the future is looking awesome.

Abby is sitting up AND you can her tooth!

And sorry, but she is the true cutest (no offense) - but all of the other april babes are running a close second (no clear front runner, but people do say Scout looks like Abby so...)

Still no sitting or rolling....

WIC office started giving me checks for juice for him! WHAT?! The gal said the govt wants them to start drinking juice from a cup to get Vit C. She said most moms buy babyfood and it is pasturized-so no Vit C. I said well, I won't be doing that. She said she agreed. I said why don't they just allow you to buy fresh fruit and veggies? She said they were in the process of changing it. Right now we receive 10 containers of juice per month! Can you believe that???

My thinks WIC is a BIG subsidy for farming. They do allow you to get some of the strangest stuff. I wonder if she is right.

Thanks, MTMama! I'll post a pic when I get it. Hooray, another member of the Mei Tai club! This will really help, as Scarlet really naps best when she's right next to me. I put her down yesterday after she'd been asleep in the sling for a while and she woke up 10 minutes later, darn it.

I keep toying with getting a different sling or such, but then winter is coming so I keep wondering how much I will use it then.

Ok...it's all "quick picture mover" fault lol I keep posting more....

But here is a pic of Johnny sitting up, a pic of him holding hands with his cousin Carolyn (who was born 21 days after him) and a pic of them cooing at each other.. Today was the first time they paid attention to each other - SO cute they kept smiling at "talking"

http://www2.snapfish.com/thumbnailsh...07/t_=90941907

Ohh..but totally offended my SIL because I got toys out of the toybox and gave them to the babies to play with without spraying them with toxic disinfectants first. : And then they were complaining about how their daughter can't eat solids because of her tongue thrust (but they feed her cereal everday anyway). And my BIL was making remarks about BF as usual (he says stuff in front of his wife about how much better BF is - my DH says he is doing it because he is mad that his wife gave up BF (he actually once fed my niece a bottle of my BM and denied it to my face while he was doing it and my son's name was on the bottle!)...but still it totally makes things alkward.

Oh...sorry for the rant...I just get annoyed everytime I go there

Hey mamas! We have been moving so I havne't really been on the net lately. It's up and going now AND I have wireless!! I forgot how convieninet it is. Ashton is doing well. He is such a mama's boy though. He is pretty laid back and easy going as long as I am around. He doesn't mind hanging out in other peoples arms as long as I am somewhere near.
Thanks to Queen, I bought a Babyhawk and I'm lovin it. I think we may start going on short hikes.

I can't believe there are babies sitting up already. I'm getting a little teary eyed realizing how fast our little ones are growing. Ash isn't sitting up yet but sometimes he "crunches" like he wants too.

All this LLL talk has me thinking of going to a meeting. I have never been to one but I think I would enjoy it. It would be a bit of a drive now that we have moved out to BFE - which, I might add is quite peaceful and relaxing (well, it will be once we really get settled)

I miss being around here but now that I am a little more settled (not in between 2 places) I'll be posting more often.

The babies are cuter and cuter all the time!!!

Welcome back, Velvet! I was wondering about you. And I still owe you 10 bucks, so now that I've figured out PayPal (thanks E), I can get that off to you. New babe, toddler, school and moving?! Wow.
