I have the Harmony nursing necklace from here- I love it, babe loves it, and it matches everything!

To my husband I am wife, to my kids I am mother, but for myself I am just me.

I'm going to attempt to make one with what I have.

I'm sorry. I don't have any advice, I wish I did.

Unfortunately, the latest research shows that ignoring is not the best solution and actually children do not grow out of the problem it comes back to bite you later in life. I had no idea until I started researching this a few months ago. I could not believe how many families I found just like mine with the reflux problems. My oldest is one of those kids who the thought was oh just ignore it he is gaining weight and fine. Now we know all the problems he had was interrelated. We had no idea until the last year everything that is wrong with him comes down to celiac disease. He had horrible acid reflux and did not sleep for which they hospitalized him for. At some point he stopped spitting up, but was a silent reflux. The acid reflux caused chronic ear infections (which we did not know was caused from the acid reflux), the chronic ear infections made it so his hearing was off so his language skills did not develop so he was cognitively delayed. When he was about 8 he developed heart problems which we now know was caused from the reflux which is caused from the celiac disease. He was hospitalized on and off from things which again aggravated by the reflux. Last year, he got mono and had over 1,000 ulcers from the reflux, etc. The drs say now he will always have trouble with ulcers and probably will need surgery for the reflux. He is this healthy kid that has really suffered. Then my youngest son, had all these problems from birth and now he has juvenile arthritis which we found out is from celiac disease. Again, we had the warning signs of reflux we just did not know. The JA is not reversible but they say if we had caught the celiac in time he would not have developed it. So here we are with Miss Maggie, we know more then likely she has celiac disease. We are glutton free and she is on the right medication but I wonder what am I missing???? What horrible thing is going to develop because everyone missed the warning signs?

I should say if we had no had Maggie we probably would have never known about the celiac disease and gone much longer going why are these things happening to our kids and scratching or heads. Our doctor says we have the healthiest kids with bad problems that are scary. My oldest son and youngest son have come close a couple times to dying all because of glutton but we did not know that. Its really stupid...its like people who die because they choked on popcorn.

I know you were not....I mean maybe this is nothing like a growth spurt. I know from the past 4 kids that can set up the reflux but I just hate not knowing is nothing to worry about or is something, kwim?

The other day I got glutton in a sugar free syrup from a coffee stand but I know what it looks like when I eat glutton with her. I just do not understand why she is taking such a downward spiral. Its been at least 2 months since she has done the violent projectiling. I am telling you babies need equipped with little nobs or something that says this is wrong or that is wrong.

That's the link I found when I was browsing this morning too - I love most of the colors on there, could buy them out. Probably a good thing she's out on babymoon. I looked at some of their other distributors but they all seem to be down to slim pickings. I can't wear jewelry with metal at all, so I actually want some just for wearing too.

I'm sorry Maggie's not doing well. Your comment reminds me of a gadget I stumbled across when I was pregnant with one or the other of them - a device that reads the different types of crying and tells you what is wrong - hungry, tired, etc. I laughed at the time, but wouldn't it be nice if it really worked? I mean, they were marketing it as really working, but um, I have my doubts, ya know?

I love how chatty we all are - I love to hear what everyone is up to. Alana I hope your husband finds his calling, and that it pays well!

I hope you figure out what's wrong with Maggie soon Heidi; you have done that dectective work before, so I have no doubt you'll figure it out - but I know it's not something you want to be doing right now with work! Unschooling rocks!

I would love to do a swap where we swap stuff that doesn't require craftiness. How about we pull names and send a care package to one other person? We can all give some ideas of what we want, what we like, things to avoid. Is that too complicated and too much work?! LOL I just know I will never put together a necklace...

Tonight Delia and I were doing latchhook and Henry scooted over to us - it was totally the first "little brother" moment when she was pulling stuff away from him, trying to block him from getting at her stuff. It was so funny. Delia has decided to be a ghost for Halloween. That is a good, easy costume - yay!

Stephanie, would you want to get together Friday morning? I'm in the far NW suburbs and feel like jamming as much stuff into this visit as I can. I'll PM you...

Henry's sleep is a bit sketchy for the past few nights. His bottom gum is red to the left of his 2 teeth down there, and it feels like his top left tooth is going to pop through in the next day or two. Poor baby.

Kayleigh is having trouble sleeping too. I've put her down twice already tonight and we're now sitting here bouncing on the exercise ball because she was up again and I'm NOY nursing her to sleep again before midnight tonight.... her "suck to sleep" link is growing and I don't want her to only be able to nurse to sleep. I can feel her tummy rumbling though, I must have eaten some garlic, poor kid.

Whew - I just finished Clan of the Cave Bear. Luckily, the sequel isn't in the house so I am free until I locate a copy. That's one of those books that just consumes you (me anyway) until it's done. I was doing really well only reading when nursing or walking Henry, but then it was just too good - I was taking it into the bathroom with me and staying longer than a good mother should! ROFL Luckily we are at my in-laws' so there are lots of arms available when I go off to get my literary fix. I had never read it before, and was expecting all these sex scenes from the way people talked about it!

Ah, cheese. I'm feeling the effects. It's not TOO bad, but it's still not fun. I am getting better though - I'm now to the point that I don't usually cheat for stupid stuff, only when I know it'll almost be worth it. Henry doesn't seem to be bothered by it, and Delia nurses so little, at least I'm not affecting anyone but myself. (She says hopefully.)

I spent about ten minutes looking how to change my mood and then saw it right there staring right at me. All that effort just to finally select "fine" from the long list of options. Too funny.

I did figure out how to display 100 posts per page, and if you do that this thread is only four pages!

Just had a rough night with Maggie. I do not think it was because of anything wrong with her just the fact I have no idea...she just nursed most the night. I am glad well glad is not the right word...man lack of sleep sure makes it hard to get out what one wants to say...I am glad that I see other people dealing with sleep problems. It must be the age.

I went back to work this week and last night was rough on Maggie. She was tired and she did not want her daddy at all and could not understand why mommy was not holding her. She finally went to sleep for daddy right as I finished uped. Maybe that is why she had a rough night. I tell you 4 am came awful early this morning.

Oh boy my daughter scares me sometimes. I am also proud of her stubbornness. She was not happy with me this morning since I was not in bed with her when she woke up. She let me know. She probably is still holding a grudge from last night too. Anyway, she messed her pants and I needed to get diapers washed so I had to change the laundry around. I might be talented but I cannot fold clothes one handed. So I had her on her stomach on the floor while I was changing the laundry around. She proceeded to yell at me. She does not cry a lot but she does yell. She also has developed a scream when she is mad at me. So I picked her up calmed her down and then put her back down as I needed to get the diapers going. Anyway, she yelled at me again and boy was she mad she was so mad she scooted over to me. It was a good 4 feet. It was so funny seeing the look on her face. It was pure determination.

Kermit is sleeping crappy and nursing lots at night lately, too. Even at his worst he's not a bad sleeper but I do hate it when he wakes up grouchy because he's still tired.

I would be willing to participate in a swap, too

What are we swapping?

Are we still doing a bead exchange?

My DH works total opposite schedule as me now.. So I've only talked to him a couple times since he's been gone He is hoping this movie goes union, becuase one of the only ways to break into the California film union is to work on a film that turns union, which means more money on future shows.. And then if that is the case and he can keep up on getting work there, we might temporally live there. Which would be good and bad. I've always wanted to live in Venice Beach, but it's good to have friends and family around to help out if I need it.

I got Sebastian a Rooster costume at Target. And if anyone hasn't gotten anything for their LO yet, Old Navy's are 50% off.

My guy is not sleeping great right now either and seems to be doing some chomping (toothless) where his gumb feel ba on my nipple. Perhaps he will get a tooth?

So my love-slug is now a proficent roller (although only to the righ it seems ) and is getting more mobile (and less slug like). Those with facebook know that my baby is working on a "he with the most rolls win" strategy

Sorry Maggie is not going well - that sucks. But, you are right that she is a fighter and good to be proud of her

I could organize a random swap where folks tell me who is in and then say what they would like and get a surprise care package. Does everyone have access to the TP because we could organize one over there then.

Oh my gosh Maggie has rolls and rolls of fat. She looks like the Michelin man especially her thighs and then add her big butt from the cd she is just down right adorable.

Okay what am I going to do?

I have taken a job working from home. The plan was for me to work before Maggie awoke. She has been up since 5:30 or so sigh. I am getting nothing done. She will not play, will not sleep all she wants to do is sit on my lap. I have to start the boys on school work soon too. SIGH.

I don't have any great solutions, but hugs and sympathy (or is it empathy if I'm going through the same thing - I can never remember). Our plan was for me to work before hubby left for work, but the school bus comes at 6:45 am and I just could not send my kids off at that time of the morning every day (it comes home at 4:45 every day and I couldn't do that either - they get out of school at 3 and 3:15) - anyway, so now hubby is taking them to school and staying in town to go to the Y, which is also a great thing. But it makes for very difficult working. I have determined that I MUST make a mei-tai for Sam today so that I can at least work with him on my lap - the Snugli sucks for that. I was working earlier with him tied to my lap with a sheet. He finally conked out a bit ago and now I'm trying to catch up - by posting on MDC :. I'm a dork.

I get more than twice as much done in 2 hours at night than I do in 3 in the mornings.

That is a good idea.
Maggie loves my keyboard which is fine when I post in here and she is grabbing at my hands and keys. Its not the same level of concentration for when I work.

Yeah, the mei tai idea is a "better than nothing" solution - better I'm typing something slowly with his help than not typing anything at all. I should just move another hour to nights or work more nights (I'm only doing 3 now) but I really just don't wanna.

Hi! I can't remember if I posted back in May/June/July or was only lurking. But then I started traveling and working some and totally lost track. So here I am again!
Overall we are doing great. J is teething and I am not losing the weight the way I had hoped (you'd think that EBFing PLUS pumping 20+oz/day to donate would do something!) but otherwise we're in good shape.
All of our pictures are at ricosalice.shutterfly.com (PW- anya)

Anyway I read the first two pages then skipped to the last two...

We have the GypsyMama water wrap. I've use it for showering with J since he was about 2wks old. Just remember not to use any shampoos, etc on yourself that you wouldn't use on the babe. He's had one sink bath, joined me in the tub twice, and had a few dozen showers with myself and/or DH. I would say he gets soaped up about 1x/wk.

We used the Blvd from the start. We had an infant seat available to borrow from a trusted friend but didn't need it. Despite being only 6lb8oz, J was 21" long and it is All in his torso. Like now at 26" (and 15lbs as of 9/19) many brands of 3-6 mo pants are still long on him but the 9 mo shirts are a little short.

T?he seat should definitely be reclined. Not sure if all Britaz seats are the same, but on mine you have to reach under the seat and pull on this handle for it to flip back to reclined position.

Then I figured out how they tied the leather cord so I got some and made really simple ones myself.

Rico'sAlice~ Welcome Back Mama! Did you have your baby UC style in a hotel room or am I confusing you with someone else? : Glad you are here! :

I just started reading the most lushious book and I totally recommend it!

Eat.
Pray.
Love.

by Elizabeth Gilbert~
Soooooo juicy!

What's everyone else reading?

Grace Comes.

Hi ladies,

Thanks for all your kind words re: DH's job loss. It has been an emotional few days for us, but peaceful in a strange sort of way, too. And I feel closer to DH than ever. I guess anytime something big happens it causes you to really reflect on how much you care about the people you love.

I've had a nasty cold the last two days as well. Amazing how our bodies pick up on stress. I think it is going to bypass Iris...she's a little congested today, but in a great mood.

mum4boys, I think working at night is probably going to be your best bet. I had all these visions of myself being productive while wearing my perfectly content LO on myback...hasn't happened. During the day, *for me*, caring for DD is my work. At night, once she's asleep, that's when I can really focus more on what I need to do.

Since DH has been home these last few days, though, I've been super productive during the day, even with a cold!

Laura, I got the dipe last week and have been meaning to let you know and say thanks! I LOVE it.

Really looking forward to the swap,too. Great idea, Megan.

Peace, mamas. And thanks again for all the love...

Not me. I wish! I did plan to UC (but at home) but after a few days transfered and then had a C-section eventually. : Pretty much the opposite of everything we'd planned.

welcome back, alice!

and baraka, that book looks divine~ i have to admit, my reading has been limited these days. i have a stack of about 10 books next to my bed but i can only read about 2 pages before i fall asleep. here's what i've been reading...

ezra had a WBV today & he doesn't weigh near what i thought. he's 27" long but only 17lbs 8oz. he has a few rolls but not as juicy as some of your babes! since we're not vaxing, i think that'll be the last time i take him in for a while. it's such a waste of time, really. i've only been going because we moved & it's a new pediatrician & i wanted to develop a relationship with them.

anyway, i joined facebook but that sight is way too confusing for me. is it meant just to show photos? the homepage is very busy. kim is a facebook queen & she makes fun of me for not "getting it." i'm just proud i can maneuver around MDC so well.
