'Why moms can't do yoga'

So I took the kids to the dr yesterday- doudat you were right! But I'm glad I went anyway- she slept so much yesterday. She was wasted. Last night she got up 1 at 2am to nurse, but did a sh*tty job cuz she couldn't breathe, and only on one side. So I woke up with rock-hard boob, which she nursed a bit on at 7:30. I was so tired last night at 2. You know sometimes you get up and you're just awake? Other times you feel like a zombie? Last night was zombie.
The dr did send me home with a urine collection kit- we're going to test her urine to make sure that fishy smell isn't a uti. He also said maybe we shouldn't have given her the shot last monday. Where's the giant 'duh'!! smiley???

I'm going to load some photos today. I promise.

Hanno! What's going on!!!???

ps- I don't swear in real life.(much) Really. But sometimes in type/print it just needs to be there.

I have one SOS and it's a knit print (giraffe) and I love it. I read that the woven ones don't stretch as much so don't fit chubby babies (aka romi or zenon) that well... So if you can get a knit, go for it. If not, I'd pass. I know there was a few knit ones on FSOT but the are pretty rare as most SOS are woven.

How do you like your Mutt?
i like the mutt a lot. good to know about the SOS.

He is the most cuddly, laid back babe you can imagine. He is still nursing and getting used to solids a little, just seems a tad uninterested. We've been letting him feed himself, and it's going okay!

He loves patti-cakes and peek-aboo. He can say Dada and Mama and DeeDah (not sure what that is, lol!) and he is now playing the "laying down" game where he'll either tilt his head down and lay down, or tilt his head and smile and we do it back! Too cute! He also loves swirling around the floor w/his big sister while she's on her sit and spin or twirling w/her dollies.

Asher loves picture books, blocks and music. He is just starting to sway and dance when music is on. He is so fast! He crawls too fast sometimes, gotta keep up w/him! He is also trying to stand by himself (without holding on) but he can hold onto the couch and make his way down it super-fast. Walking is just around the corner.

He has curly blond hair (DH and I are both brunettes,lol, well DH has a hint of blondish/brown in his hair, DH had white hair when he was a babe) and he has two teeth on the bottom!

He loves cereal w/fruit and diced carrots and apples.

He is an all around happy, easy going baby! Sweety pie!
he sounds like sweetie! and cute too! (post pics )
i like his name too

No baby for my sil and bil yet...they're hoping it wasn't really waters that broke because she's just now losing mucous. My poor bil has been throwing up all yesterday until this morning. Partially a stomach bug but I'm sure partially nerves. Then Ion started projectile vomiting just before we were about to leave for Howell to let bil and sil have the house to themselves so they can do some more private induction measures Well, were in Howell now awaiting news and hoping when the midwife checks it wasn't really the water. Otherwise, it may be castor oil time. My sil has been so calm about everything. Everyone already loves this little one so much! She's ready when the baby is but doesn't want him or her to feel pressured

And, WELCOME ZOOBABIES!!!

It would have been, but I can understand how comfy it must be in a warm womb during a Michigan winter. :

verivax--is that the all in one one?? we did the dtap with kaylo...it was the only one we did. i think we were really worried about whooping cough b/c there were a lot of cases near us that winter. i'm still confused what to do with zenon. i hate when docs push things though...grrr. our old one did too--but luckily i found a new doc who's chill.

i'm now hooked on another site too. paperbackswap.

my friend does this and loves it. i'm trying it out. it won't be that great if it takes a long time to get some of the books on my wishlist. but it's a pretty cool idea for books that i just want to read and pass on.

hope you all are well!

Queen: glad to hear Eva's ok.

Vaccines: I have 1 booster I'm supposed to get Liam (he was supposed to get it at 18mths)... My doctor is kinda bugging me about doing it, I'm not sure yet. Romi I'm just waiting until she's past 2yrs old and then I guess I'll have to make a decision. I hate the whole vaccine thing, the pros & cons hurt my head.

Romi is sleeping HORRIBLY. She wakes up all the time. I nurse her back to sleep fine, except past 3am. Then she nurses but stays whiny, crying, agitated for the rest of the night. She yells for her binky since, yes people, we still swaddle her cause we can't get her to sleep unswaddled. Our dark swaddling secret : So she's annoyed/annoying/crying/nursing till 6am where, as if we turned on (or off) a switch, she becomes happy once again.


Oh, my blocked duct finally cleared up but my left boob still hurts and now I'm thinking thrush. Cause it burns throughout the feeding, not just at the beginning :

And so this doesn't turn into a huge whinny post, tomorrow I'm going to a babywearing meeting in the area, woo-hoo!! Meeting new moms might make me feel better.

Great pics Queen...you are all so beautiful! And I love your house. If you ever get down this way I need you to come and help me decorate, !
I love Eva's butt sweater too! I have a couple pairs from a woman at the market and I love them for winter. And that pic of you pulling the sled and Axel pushing the dump truck reminds me of us! Finn is always pushing his dump truck all around town

Well, Arlo is sick too. Our nights are horrible right now and I find myself being really irritable and short tempered. I am even entertaining the thought of going fo a tan just to feel warm and sunny for 5 min.!

Not more sickies!!! Babies with snotty noses are no fun.


DH and I are going to be social tonight. We'tr going out to dinner with another couple. I roomed with the wife in grad school. They have one little one and wanted to know if we wanted to be just adults or include kids. Ummm, no kids. We're finally getting better and I try to limit Claire's exposure to influnza.

sure is quiet around here!

Finn'smama- funny about the dump truck!
Although, this is Axel's 2nd. He had one exactly the same, and he and grandma were going for a walk up the road, and they left it on the side of our rural road for a bit while they walked farther, and when they came back it was gone. Crazy because everyone who went by them waved, they weren't a couple thousand feet away, and the 'stealers' HAD to drive by them. He was so sad. So daddy brought a new one home for him one day.

Oh, and I wanted to add- I don't usually wear such a funny outfit. I was wearing a big old blue coat that I like the colour of, but not the fit.

well, i thought you looked hot and that sucks about axel's truck....


so the server is too busy to post my reply, so i will add to it..
i put arlo to bed and he was up 20min later so that usually sets the pattern for the night. i really need some sleep ladies the worst thong is that he is inconsolable sometimes, so he cries and cries. i actually gave him some motrin for his teeth, so we'll see if that helps at all. the camillia just wasn't doing anything.

laughupthanks, that's whay I'm hoping for, especially when I wear Chad's plaid work jackets.

Oh, I hope you get some! At this age it's wearing us thin, isn't it? I wonder why he cries and cries, now? During the night, too? I wish I could offer some suggestions, but I"m sure you've tried everything. Sometimes I'm so frusterated that Eva's still getting up. And if it's not one thing, it's another (like Axel crying that 'all his toys went down the drain). I want my nights back! But I wish I knew how!
:sleep Arlo, sleep!
