Welcome to OR! Wish we could meet!

We're at the beach @ my folks house. laptop is dying. ta

I cant keep up, SO much going on with you guys!

for all the ones with problems

: for all the good news!

Sophia is doing good today, she had a mystery illness, fever and congestion and achy-looking for a couple days. A big dose of antibiotics and shes WAY better. She was all smiles today.

She is not liking the bottle, her reflux is so bad, she has the ability to suck and swallow but doesnt want to. Our options are keep her in the hospital and keep trying or put a permanent feeding tube in her stomach and take her home (while still working with the bottle). At first the tube freaked me out but now I dont give a crap what is hooked to her, I want her home...NOW.

The nurses have been making me do ALL her feeding, meds, cleaning, measuring, etc and have been quizzing me on amounts, names and reasons for meds. Ill be a pro by the time we get her home!

Im thinking about every single one of you guys!!!!!

Shasharna, I love that your baby growls at anyone for food. I had a friend's baby rooting on me recently- so funny!

Kate, enjoy the beach. And I'm glad to hear the positive IUD report. I'm going to do it- just need to fill the prescription and make the appointment.

inky, thanks for the update. Good luck on your trip! I think we lose the DDC in the next couple of weeks...

Mel--I think Kenady and Nora might be the runts of the group...LOL Kenady was 9 pounds almost 1 ounce last Saturday! she has gained 4 pounds since birth...

She just yells at me when she's hungry. She roots for about 1/2 a second and if you don't have the boob out and ready for her to eat, she screams at you until you put it in her mouth! She eats frequently, but not large quantities I think.

Gotta go, the yelling is starting...

I am feeling totally overwhelmed lately, so I'm not posting much, but it doesn't mean I'm not thinking about all of you! I'm just struggling to try to get stuff done around the house. Our yard is like a jungle, the garden is weedy, the carpets are dirty, the cats are peeing outside their box (not on the carpet though, thank God) and need to be taken to the vet, the cars need repairs, my parents and siblings are all needing some TLC, etc etc etc. : At least the baby is clean, fed, and well cared for!

Living the good life and walking a path of peace with DH and DD (4/09)

I meant to comment on this and forgot...PP brain! That would be sooo GREAT to meet up, though I hate that it's a year away our babies won't be babies anymore! Not going to think about that!!!

And I'm so sorry that your having such a tough time lately...adjusting is so hard sometimes...DD1 has been an entirly different child, she's even had some potty accidents. People said this would happen but they said that about every other stage and she proved them wrong, I guess we are making up the years we got off with such a sweet child!

Just had a friend and her daughter visit from our old town, I used to nanny her daughter when she was 3rd/4th grade and hadn't seen her till now. She's a senior this year...time goes so fast! It was so sweet to see her playing with my P. N wouldn't let them hold her long though...but it's so nice that as a second time mommy I don't care what others think of me, when my baby cries I get her back! It was such a good visit! This friend helped plant the seeds in me about the world of chiropractic and natural health as well as a relationship with Jesus... It's amazing how you can know someone so breifly in life yet they can impact you in a great way.

Fireworks rained out....bummmer!

bodhitree. Clean, fed and well-cared for baby counts for a lot!

Nora seems to be coming into such a "personhood" in the last week. She's suddenly so in tune with her surroundings, talking so much and really seems to watch and listen to everything around her. I love watching her develop her own personality and way of being in the world : And Neela is convinced that Nora "gets" and tells fart jokes. Nora farts or poops, then looks at us and giggles

farting babies are hilarious... PJ often sneezes and farts at the same time and sends DH and I reeling. Instant funniness.

so far Phoebe hates farting, but delights her brother by doing it frequently. According to my dad the first joke I 'got' as a baby was about farts. So, its quite a family tradition around here...

she was 12 lbs 4oz about 10 days ago (at 8 weeks exactly). That is smaller than her brother was at the same age but certainly no runt.

ugh, crying baby, I can relate to everything else falling apart but at least baby is okay. gotta run! She wants momma 24-7, that is for sure.

got to see my nephew on fri! he is soooo tiny. and looks just like my sis but dark. my sis and I got to talk even w/8 other people in the room! (don't know how she colud stand that many- I never could. She's bfing, cding (thru a service- for now), cosleeping and bwing. But they circ the poor little guy- wanted to say so much about it but held my tongue and just prayed for him. but all in all so cool. he's very like going to be my only nephew/neice for a very long time- if ever again. she ahd a really hard and fast labor. 1 hr and 45mins from start to finish. he was transverse and tey had to use the vaccum to get him out she tore front to back but she's in good spirits!

so found out my wagon's head gasket is blown and we don't ave the money to fix it right now . going to be a long summer w/the kids at home. can't go anywhere except the grocery- less than a mile away! argh.

I love smilie babes.caleb charms everyone he meets w/his smile! and the giggles. he's been sleeping so well te past few nights- like I am talking 8-9 hrs in a stretch! mama's finally getting some sleep too now! If only ds4 would get on board and sleep past 7 now that would be heaven!

This whole week w/ds4 has been hard. he's been wild and very aggresive towards everyone. even bit dd7 leaving a bruise! so just wanted to tie him to his bed. this weekend I get a break/breather as they middles are at their dad's for it. he tried to get out of it so he could enjoy the 4th w/his friends alone but that was a no-go. they'd have more fun w/him. there's a picnic w/swimming and fireworks w/lots of the kids' friends and his. where we are just staying home (dh has to work in the am/noon) and are skipping fireworks for Caleb's sake (he's just too little this year). but it'll be nice to relax and just be!

hope everyone has a great 4th and weekend! :

this has been happening w/ my 4 1/2 year old too. Not all the time, but so much more than we are used to. I am trying to live through it, respond firmly and kindly, appropriately, and not get mad myself (easier typed than done)

blah

happy fourth of july everyone.

Yup, my 4 year old isn't aggressive but whines and melts into tantrums way more! I hope this adjustment period adjusts soon so we can move onto more pleasant days....

Better go spend time with the fam...I hate that it's raining today, though we did get to go to the parade!

Nursed N in the MT with a nursing cover while walking through the grocery store, I love it when things like that work!

Thinkin of Dawn, Mischeivium and Lindsay...holiday's can be hard when your missing a peice of your family at home.

Me too, I can't remember who said it but it really is a survival tactic as I am not a morning person, but who can resist a sweet baby coo and smile??

I think I either have a plugged duct or mastitus...going to take my temp. Woke up this morning with really sore breast (not nipple) rubbed it while nursing lots and in the hot shower, no relief. There is no bump just soreness in a line from armpit area to nipple. I feel so tired and worn out and a little tummy ache, I even excercised and showered which usually makes me energized...any thoughts??? Still dealing with the yeast/thrush issue ( apears to be clearing up though if not gone this week will get genetian violet) I gave in and used a vaginal monistat I had...day two with that and I know I have a vag yeast too...UGH! Going to take my temp, attempt to eat something and lay down with babe.

I have beeen reading along, but still overwhelmed.

Lindsay, I had an acquaintance at our last military base with a DS who spent a couple months in the NICU. In the end, he came home with a feeding tube, and kept it until just after his first birthday. His dad said it wasn't any problem at all, and they got used to it quickly. I cannot imagine how much you just want Sophia in the house.

We have a cold bug going through the house and LO got it. I got the sweetest, funniest thing last night. I put ODS to bed and went to check on DH who was trying to get YDS to sleep. Witht he cold, YDS was fussy, so DH used a fleece blanket like a wrap and had YDS tied to him. Now we have tons of carriers, so why he didn't just go into the hallway and grab one, I don't know.....but seeing DH wearing a congested YDS in a ducky fleece blanket just melted my heart and made me giggle. I snagged a picture and promise to share once I download it.

I'd call the doctor tomorrow, unless it's magically cleared up. The last time I had the symptoms you describe, my FP diagnosed it--generically--as a breast infection, and prescribed abx compatible with breastfeeding to clear it up. To me the big flag is the soreness that extends into the armpit.

So I had this too and a shower did NOT help. A burning hot compress helped. I kept heating it up and kept it for about 5 min then massaged form under my armpit down to my nipple. The compresses and tons of pumping seem to work best for mine!

Didnt see clarasmoms response!!! Listen to her call the doc!

Zack pouted at the loud booms of the Macy's fireworks at first, but then slept through it and the train rides, subways and our long walk in a huge crowd back to Grand Central after the show. Sirens, horns, voices and Times Square mayhem didn't wake him.

I wonder what he'll be like next year...

No effects from the vaccines have been evident. Sweet.

Shine, I am also anti abx unless absoltely needed & there are options for mastitis, although it sounds like you are improving.

If there is no fever yet, you can take garlic cloves and cut them to swallowable size and swallow a cloves worth like a pill, every 4 hours. It works like abx, but gently. You also take vit C to tolerance every 4-6 hrs, I take about 500 mg each time. The combination, plus tons of nursing, helps cure mastitis before it gets too bad. Once a fever kicks in, abx can be the best bet.

Shine, I cured my mastitis with vit c, garlic, rest, TONS of water, TONS of nursing and alternating hot/cold compresses and massage and hand expression. It took about 24 hours, and I never had a fever. There was a red area and streaks extending in my breast, and they slowly retreated and the pain improved. Hope yours is better soon!

We have great coos and smiles here this week. And *so* close to rolling all the way over- she still gets hung up on her arm, though. Easier when naked and no dipe in the way of her twisting and rolling around.

I've done a great job of keeping Nora and Neela protected from the sun, but burned myself today. We were at the park all morning, then building composters at the community garden this afternoon. I love the sun, but need to protect myself a little better!
