I am so saddened by Txgirl's news.
Carrie- the margarita sounds like a plan after the plans with your bff fell through.
Don't worry about parenting in front of the families. It is so easy to over think these things and stress about it, but you are a great mama and standing your ground now will be best for everyone-- so if she sleeps in your arms exclusively, then you make that happen. As Tara said, you know your baby's needs and you can anticipate them best.
AAM: I went to Target today for a breast pump, and their selection was terrible. We have basically no where else around here (aside from walmart, where I do not shop) that I can think to buy one, so I think I'll go to the breastfeeding support center and see what they have to recommend.
While at Target I was doing a little Christmas shopping (slippers for DD, and a robe) and called DH. He opened with "I realized we are hemorraging money" and then later in the call encouraged me to buy the super spendy breast pump. Not going to happen, fella! I might be going back to work when DS is 9 months old, but I'm not going to invest that kind of money right now! Do the hand pumps work? I've never had a manual one, and don't want to spend the comparatively little amount when it might not be the one I want.
My beautiful baby boy is going bald and getting the worst acne! I am so bummed, as it is right before he'll have 1,000 photos taken of him by all of the family. I feel like it's something I've done, but I guess it's just time for him to turn awkward. He still has a beautiful smile, however.
I think I took on too much for tomorrow and my DD won't let me nap! We have plans to go to a children's museum (after the trip to farmer's market, of course) and then tickets to a musical tomorrow night. When will I sleep and do laundry? Uh oh.
