Thank you everyone for the well wishes. Abby is much better today, other than an occassional fever outbreak. I am really glad we caught this early & did not end up with a hospital admission. Someone asked how she got it, well we have had cold recently & my older kids go to school. Austin right now has a nasty cough & I wonder if he gave it to her. Who knows...I am just glad we caught it so soon.
Happy Birthday Maximom. Today my son is 10 years old! Happy Boo-day is what we say! It is also my FIL birthday.
I love looking at everyone pics. The lady bug is cute! Amber was a lady bug when she was 2, way before digital pics or I would post them!
Scout looks so grown up in her portraits! & so much hair!
Today we will T or T & have cake & ice cream. Many sweets!!! It will be a sugar high for sure!
Thanks again for the well wishes! We are better!

When I had it a year ago I was pg, so I had some fentanyl for pain, but I was wide awake.
You know, I was lucid during it and remembered it immediately after. Now? It's not clear at all. So weird! Versed is an odd drug.

I'm not pumping and dumping. Ronan often goes more than four hours without nursing (at night, of course) and I'm not uncomfortable. In another hour, he can nurse. He's playing with a bottle of breastmilk now. I just wanted to pump earlier today so that he could have milk if he wanted it. He only drank a couple ounces. I'll freeze the other ounce or two, that way he can teethe on it in a mesh feeder.

I feel bad right now. He wants booby, not bottle, and he needs to sleep. He's hugging my arm. Oh, good. He feel sleep.

I see the checkout sheet says no alcohol. I assume that means until the drugs wear off. Hrmph. It's my wedding anniversary and I have a bottle of Bonny Doon framboise! I must have some!

Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.

jocelyndale: I think they say no alcohol because they are worried about adding the sedative effect of the alcohol along with the sedatives they already gave you today. Personally, I'd hold off til tomorrow.

Wow -- I just found this thread! How lame am I? I kind of dropped off the face of MDC after DD arrived but I would like to become more active.

So hello everyone and congratulations on your babes! Now I need to do some reading and catch up!!

Thanks! I'm not sure what they thought about the date (other than easy to remember), but they definitely thought the pagan ceremony we had was weird. It included a hammer, a sword and drinking ale out of a sheeps horn, boogedy!

We chose that date because it's also the anniversary of our first date.

Max has decided he DOES want to go trick or treating, after changing his mind 20 times. Wants to be a devil, hmmm. Glad everything Halloween is on sale today.

Yes - I think it's because I'm always doing things around the house that involve bending over w/ Scout in the sling. I wish everything was up on a counter where I could reach it. I bend my back all funky to reach the laundry detergent tub when I'm doing the laundry. I squat down and lean into the dryer to scoop clothes out into a basket. Scout drops a toy and I have to grab it with my toes and reach down to grab it. I try to squat instead of bend as much as I can, but I still end up doing weird things to my back. Uugh.

I know we already reached 800, so I don't know why I feel compelled to break up my post into 2 parts

I just ordered $100 worth of nice wooden German-made toys w/ non-toxic water-based laquers for Scout from Moolka.com. I want to phase out all of her cheap plastic junk toys as we have the money to buy her nice quality toys. I tried to find North American-made toys first, but there just weren't very many options as far as infant toys go.

800...and we were proud last month to break 400

We took J trick or treating and he got various candy that he will get through BM though he did lick on a lolly pop a few times and animal crackers...he slept most of the evening though! Then my family sang happy brithday to me over pumpkin pie (my favorite)! Oh, and DH did eventually figure out it is my birthday after saying "isn't your bday tomorrow?" The nice thing was I got a nice long nap while he watched J...maybe I already posted that - I forget!!!
