My friend's DS ate a bunch of children's Tylenol cause he thought, of course, they were candy. My friend called Poison Control and they reassured her that the children's version has a very, very low...

DD will be 1 in less than 2 weeks. Where did the time go???

I guess this means I'll have to check the "Toddler" thread only from now on. Bye bye babes, hello big boys and girls!...

That's a lovely way of putting it! I also notice that DD picks up words--like "duck" and "meow"--when we do the same things over and over. I suppose I feel less productive somehow, after years of...

Anyone else feel like they're living Groundhog Day? There are days where I enjoy our little routine, but then there are days where it feels very much like "Here we go again!". It's hard to even...

Wow, when DD was 4 weeks I was still in the trenches of new-baby hell. Kudos to you for wanting to work on your marriage... but I think you just need to give parenthood a little time to work itself...

In all honesty, I don't think there is anything you can say. Just like some people don't "get" AP parenting and we hate hearing how we're spoiling/ruining/indulging our babies, people who think...

DD is going on 1, and although DH wants more kids (he's Irish, after all!), I'm thinking I'd prefer just the one. I had a hard time adjusting to motherhood, and some days I feel like I'm still...

We used the dang thing twice, I think. DD didn't really like it. I think she felt confined.

No full sentences yet, but DD seems to be trying out words a whole lot these days.

Can you say "glasses"? "Dasses!"

What's a cat say? "Melow, melow."

Want some cheese? "Tseese!"

I'll bite, too!

DD was 3 months last January, and for walks I'd put her in a onesie and cotton pants, socks, a sweater, a one-piece winter suit, and a hat. I'd then cover her with a blanket or two in the stroller....
