I think my niece liked the diaper bag alright, but someone else got her a fancy store-bought one with lots of zippers and compartments and whatnot and I could tell that she liked that one better. But she is so sweet and kept telling me how much she loved it and telling everyone how her aunt made her a bag with her sewing machine. It's funny that she is only 7 years old, but she's socially aware enough to fake-liking a gift to spare people's feelings.

I can't believe they banned you without questioning you first!

Mutts: squishy goodness, I love the 3sr ones (like the Gnomes pictured on my Blog). They run from 22$ to 27$ new and you can get them great deals used if you ever get back on DS.
Here's a not so recent picture of romi in a 3sr.

we are working on loading our new computer...so i wasn't going to be checking ds for a while, but i was going to check my email...so i was asking about some dipes for sale...but instead of pming, i emailed the mama. i asked her to email me back at a different email than what my ds says b/c i check it more. that's all. oh, i also asked another mom what diapers she still had for sale through a usual pm too, i think. but that shouldn't be spam. wth?? i can't even log on a guest, i can't do anything!

Did you have any feedback on the old account?I know it's "illegal" in the DS world to create a new account when you've been banned, but if you don't do anything to get suspected of anything fishy, why should they care?

Weird, I never knew contacting people via email was spam Why add an email addy on your profile if it's not to get people to use it? I don't have my email addy on my profile cause I don't want weird people writing me.

Wish me luck girls! I might not be on much the next 5 days because DH is getting a much needed break from his sahd stuff and is going to run in Disney's Marathon. Wish him more luck so he can finish! i'm sure I will have my hands full at home with the girls!

I could email her, but what to say? And the email addy doesn't appear on the profile, just a email link, which uses DS to send the email...

I'd say use the new profile.

AAAH!!! You ladies have like addicted me to DS I cannot get my eyes off the site - I am totally OCD about it...I'm spending too much money!!!!

KrisMarie- sorry you are having trouble with it (though maybe it is sign lol) let me know if I can help you with anything to get it straightened out.

So Johnny is picking up more words and they are so cute and babyish and my DH is getting upset that I keep repeating them the way Johnny says them (like "doosh" for "juice" and "leah" for "Yes") do you that have older ones think I would be hurting his speach development?

Ok- gotta go to church talk to you all tomorrow!!!

We usually say words the correct way, but then again we often imitate Axel with his funny pronounciation, for example, we called tv 'doobs' for the longest time. I don't think you want to reinforce the 'baby' pronounciation, but it's not worth getting upset about it. I don't think it will hurt speech development in the long run if you guys talk normally to him too. That being said- wow- he says that much? go Johnny go!

Kris- I pm'd you! Sucks!

Tabrizia- how's that baby's head? Poor guy! Amazing walkers everyone!

I noticed a couple of days ago that the inside of Micah's cheeks had a bit of a white film on them. At first I though it might have been milk remnants, but I have kept a close eye on it and it's still there. So, it seems that he has a bit of thrush. Just in the mouth -- I haven't noticed it in the diaper area or in my breasts.

I did some research on remedies and came across a few natural approaches -- most of them are listed in this article. There are several, so I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with eliminating thrush naturally. If so, I would love to know what you did, how much, when did you do it, etc.

that is so hard! could you pump and give it to her in a sippy? you still have a few months...it's wonderful that you got a year. but so hard...

we battled yeasty stuff all the time. the rx nystatin has never worked for me. (it's sugar based and yeast love sugar). i give zenon probiotics (powdered baby kind) in expressed bm and yogurt. i wipe off my nipples with cider vinegar (diluted in water 1:1) good luck

Yeast: gentian violet did the trick for us. It's cheap, no need for an rx, and yeast isn't as resistant to it as with anti-fungal like Nystatin. I second the probiotics, I'd open a capsule, dip with finger in it and let romi suck on it. Of course, now that our babies are eating solids, I guess yogurt might be easier, but I'd add a capsule of probiotics in the yogurt for a double wahmmy!

I'm going to have to try but pumping is so hard for me. I'll have to really boost my milk supply to get anything. Mmmm, I have some Domperidone left over from Liam when I had supply issues... I wonder if I could take some just to get me enough to pump. Would I dare take them without the advice of a medical professional? :

hmmm...maybe. i'm not one to go to the doctor...so, i'd probably take them teeehee. but maybe you could try teas or something first?? eating oats and quinoa...that sort of stuff.
thanks for the pm, i'll let you know.

speaking of doctors, i have never taken kaylo or zenon to one except an occasional well-child. but, i think i'm going to take zenon today. he still has a fever and major chest congestion. i've never had an exclusively bf child not get better after 5 days! luckily my doc is really cool and i told him i just wanted him to give a little listen to his lungs. hopefully we're in and out and i'm restored with my healing confidence.

cute babe, Ultimate! and well wishes to sick and thrushy babies.

Scarlet was up for hours last night - just screaming her darn head off and holding me tight. I tried everything I could, but to no avail. I was so tired myself. I finally put he in the sling and that calmed her right down and was finally asleep about 20 minutes later.

She's full of smiles this morning, but I need !
