Oh, my goodness! I totally can't even believe that happened, it's just so crazy! What does it even mean? Good grief...what a way to freak a mama out...and how exactly does it happen? Arne't appointments with dr's confidential? Oh Anika, I hope you get some real support and help at home. How long are you going for?

Ummmm, what's with all these babies standing up on things. Like are we having a contest or something? Standing is not allowed, especially pictures of standing. Rolling, and crawling, whatever, I haven't seen any visuals of this so I can brush it off. But standing??? Nope. not having any of it.

I just gave away a bunch of longies, booties, baby clothes, etc... on DS. I LOVE that website. I have been shut out of MDC TP-bc I posted too many ISOs before Noah was born. We live in rural MT, where else am I gonna find this kind of stuff? I can't believe I would be shut out-I have over 700 posts! Just irks me.

Have a sunny day! Enjoy the fall colors!
I like you're hair! It's cute. I got my bangs cut for the same reason, I was always putting it up.
And that's so weird about the MDC tp- I didn't even know that could happen!

Hi, this is my first time posting in this thread.
My sweet lo was born April 22, 2007. I also have a 22 yo DD and am also in the procsess adopting my 13 month old twin neice and nephew (whom we have had since they were 3 weeks old) as well as my 9 yo nephew and 11 yo neice. In the past year our family has grown from just hubby and I at home to a family of 8 (with three of them under a year old)

It has been quite an adjustment, but I am loving every (well, almost every ) minute of it

I do think the bigger babies are slower. WIth our twins Camryn has always been smaller than her brother Carson. Right now she weighs 21 pounds and he is 25. She was crawling and walking before him.

It is a good way to see those crankypants in action ! Seems that you get a fat baby or you get a super active baby for fairness. Unless you're doudat and you get both at the same time.

Finnsmama, I have been in the same situation, although not with PPD, just regular plain old depression, but moving home was such a welcome relief for me. You need to do what will keep you sane.

finn'smama- that has got to be the worst, I would be so upset and wanting to go home, too. I'm sure it will be great to get the hugs and support you need IRL.

AkRotts - Wow, superMom!!! Welcome to you and the other newbies. The more the merrier.

Is this standing for real or just a momentary pose to show off?

Krismarie- OT - are you still canning like crazy? I did clean my stove top finally, but apples are coming next, yikes! Enjoy the extra hands, that must be really nice. I only wish a family member would come visit, it's always me having to travel east with the children.

I am STILL pulling my hair out, literally. Are you gals still shedding?

Here are some new fun photos. Max took the one of Scarlet sans clothing and the one of us.

E - Your haircut is so cute! I cut my hair about a year ago, over a foot off and the hair salon donated it. However, dh was sad and told me I could never cut my hair again. So, it's growing back, but man it was so long and hard to manage before I cut it all off. I called it my sassy cut. Have fun with it.

Ok, can you tell everyone is asleep and I finally have free hands for the computer? Off to lurk on other boards...

cute pictures!

yes, but not quite as much... our tomatoes are pretty much done even though i want more sauce but, yes apples are coming! i've been trying to freeze some greens before it frosts here. a friend said she'd bring me some apples last week and i told her to hold off a week. it is a rare treat to have family out here...i'm luvin it. what do you do with apples? we only make applesauce?

and i'm still pulling out hair too...i hate it. there are long hairs all over our house!
my dh is the same way!! he doesn't want me to cut my hair.

my dd3 is not a very good sleeper until the last few weeks. She again slept through the night last night!!! I'm so amazed. I really do think that the omega's, probiotics, and steroid cream are making the difference.

Mmmm, call me skeptical, but could you be buttering me up to eventually get your greedy paws on my crankies for future offsprings (knowing that romi is my last)?

As for being driven to battiness, I can't even tell you how many times romi has asked: "mama, where's my painting?" or "mama, why don't we have a Babyhawk?" or even "mama, why can't I speak english?" How do you answer to that? Of course I fill the void with crankies. Apologetically, she gets cool clothes. I do my best but I can't measure up to all of you. So I stalk the boards and every so often tell romi "if you stand up for the picture, mama will get you some cool longies" And she does. Because she is kind. And I am weak.
