Let's start w/this:

Well, far as I can tell, we need to do an intro thread again, and keep it accessible - Az lives in Mass., and it's her baby that's Miss E. who is smaller, like Ori. Jessi is in St. Louis, Jess is in Co. Mary and Laura had the preemies (to different degrees), Megan and Torin. T is now a bruiser and Megan is sweet and petite (like Miss E.) .

Lisa is in Cleveland (with Drew Carey and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) and her house is always under construction - her little (or big) girl has reflux, and used to sleep through the night but doesn't any more... Lisa did the elim. diet to straighten this out... and hopeful that someday she'll get to sleep again. :LOL

Andy and Karen have kids who don't sleep a lot, but they nap (usually).

Nicole has Will (who along with Mary/Torin, Andy/Ori, half of Joyce's 2 (David), and Karen/Luka are all the boys in this little group) who had surgery and came through like a CHAMPION! She, Jessi, Jess, and Mary (and maybe I'm forgetting someone?) are all back at work outside the home at least part time now. Heidi lurks and works

Annie had our first full term babe, and our first flower
. Heidi had our last, and our last flower
!

Pam gets special mention because she's Canadian (no canadian smilie ) has chickens AND has a toddler and a baby
!

Jessi is a runner, and runs with weird people who don't smoke but who do hash
, stalks diapers and pumps like a maniac (no pumping smilie - now THAT's a tragedy!)
.

Karen eats weird fruit, has a TRILLION fish and some chickens AND has two georgous older boys we're all dying to get matched up to our daughters (if for no other reason than to be family with Karen!) - she lives in Hawaii (was there someone on this thread that didn't know that?), as does Annie, who has a preschooler, a toddler AND a baby! :2tandem
.

Ah, and then we have the crafty among us - Ann the knitter (and there are other knitters too - Az and Kathy, ???), Karen the sewer, Kathy the photographer, Jeni the sewer, Nicole the cross-stitcher!
Andy makes platypus costumes as her specialty :LOL, and Jess keep Colorado magical w/chalk!

There's the mamas of twins (Joyce and Michelle),
: and mamas who wish they had chickens (Joyce, Az, Andy, Kathy, Lisa, Jessi, Jess, Nicole, Heather and Mary (did I miss someone?). (no chicken smilie, either)

There's the West Coasters (Cat and Tiger and Mary - do we have an Oregon connection?), the midwesterners (or Prairie people as the Canadians say it) (Lisa, Jessi) the Southeners (Heather, Kathy, Heidi); the East Coasters (Jeni, Az, Andy, Laura) and the Islanders (Annie and Karen). And, living out of her igloo (don't all canadians live in igloos
), Pam!!!

The nurses (Mary, Annie, was-Joyce), the midwives (Heidi and Karen).

Those amongst us who have new cars (Kathy, Joyce and Mary) and new house stuff (Lisa floors, cabinets and more wha ha ha...SOOO much more!, Heidi (EVERYTHING had to be replaced! ), Az (fridge), Andy (got a new stove!), and someone else had to get something done...

Then there are the two girl families
, there's a few of those (Kathy, Jess, Laura, Pam), and the first time moms (Jessi, Heidi, Jeni, Mary, Lisa, Catnip (tho the twins count as being a parent), Tiger
).

And there's the Canadians, the Cans abroad, the married to Cans, and I can't even remember who they all are (Pam, Jeni, Andy, Kathy).

We have parents of older kids (Karen (8 and 12), Andy and Az (both 7), and Catnip (TEENagers
: )).

And our most precious, hardworking, dedicated, and harrassed amongst us, those with toddlers/preschoolers and babies (we do love you guys!!!) - Pam, Kathy, Heather (who lives in Arizona), Jess, Laura, Annie, Nicole, am I forgetting someone? Mushy brains...sorry!

PETS!!! How could I forget pets! There's the dog people (I'm definately going to forget people, so post and I'll edit in) -
: Nicole, Andy, Lisa, Mary) and the cat people
: (Karen, Jeni, Ann - there's more...I need help here) and the both people (Az, Jess and ???), but truly, Az takes the cake with a full menagerie and THEN some!

Heidi's History Page

Mornin on the new thread! And, I'm a senior member now!
Made it at about quarter to 12 last night. So it took me about 8 months, not bad.

We started out by waking up crying, but now she's cheerful and helping with the typing by sneezing on my keyboard. :LOL

Andy, literally, the internet IS on the roof. At least the wireless box is. :LOL

So like an
I started diaper hunting already, but it doesn't start until 9 mountain time? so that's what, noon here?

Heather, ooooh that's a messy floor with all those little bitty bits!

Mary lol on your middle of the night siiiiiiinging!

Yikes, y'all were chatty again last night. Geez...


Heheh Andy, looks like you were with me this morning hunting already.

Lauren took FOREVER to go to sleep last night, nursed and whined and paci'd and fussed and wiggled and nursed from 9:30-11, then up at 1:30, 3, and maybe 6? and then 8. It was funny, at 3 she nursed a ton but didn't potty, so I just kept sitting there. She literally was snoring on the potty and I had to laugh, which woke her up just enough to pee and go back to sleep.

Going to get my oatmeal and come back. No diaper hunting until we get home this afternoon for me...

I think you get to chose a name for yourself and maybe something else. More than anything, I think it shows just how part of the MDC community you are. Congrats Paq


Andy - I forgot to confirm that I am a crafty mama. I cross stitch and have since I was in brownies. I get paid for it now, but only a teeny tiny. If anyone has anything they want me to do, I am more than happy to do it.

We have reached 2 milestones. 1) Will is sleeping through the night more times than not and 2) He did his first night in a CD
: and still slept through! I am so excited.

Okay, gotta go get ready for work and make lunches and all that good stuff. I am in a all day training
yuck yuck,. I hate that kind of stuff. At least i will be allowed to go in and out because of Will.

Jeni, congrats

Laura, I think it's a status symbol for people with internet insecurities. :LOL
BUT you do get to pick a new name and title I think, which would be nice. I'd like a new name.

can one of you help me out w/the instructions on this sling?
http://sewing.2ya.com/ it's the ABC sling

on the straps where it gives the length I think? it says 2-3" , ok so is that for the width? and then the other side says 2-3 yds , so thats for the length? alright now that I'm typing it out I think I understand it now. Is that correct? maybe I shouldn't try it so early in the morning when my brain ain't functioning

Laura - 2" long straps that are 2 yards wide would be WEIRD!!! I think you've got it right. I think that's for the top ones, right, that wrap around and back again? If you're smallish go w/the 2yrd. If biggish (I don't think of you as biggish, though), go with the longer strap.

I bought brown fleece for the Platypus costume...then - after I'd paid for it - I thought of FELT!
! Then I could staple it or glue it and not have to sew the whole darned thing! Oh well...

Jeni - CONGRATS to our new Senior Member! How does it feel? Like a birthday? That glowing after good sex feel? Hmmm... I'll just have to wait and see. You didn't like my embedded link? I thought I was getting good at those. I LOVE being a guru about these things...dh came in this morning while I was getting that up there and he's like Hey, what's that?! My goofey dh - he's been working on computers forEVER and just never tried it. So I got to be the guru! HA! I didn't tell him I learned it this week... oh, my birth story link didn't come through either...sad.

Oh well, time to get cleaning and laundering. Caio!

Paq, weird I see you have the 1,000+ posts but yet it still says you're a member


Yeah I'm not really sure on how the dharma co-op is being run. I don't think the mama has a clear cut plan either. I'm going to take another look, hopefully sometimes today

Andy I think fleece is better than felt, felt is pretty stiff I think the fleece will make a better costume. Did you ever get the sewing machine going?

Ann (do you like Ann or Annie better) I hope Kobe is feeling better today, and hopefully the fever isn't from something other than the allergies, poor little guy doesn't need anything else going wrong for him

I can never remember stuff from the old thread
: I've got such a terrible memory, plus I'm sleep deprived

Well I think we're going to have a busy day here. ds has dr's apmt 1 hour away
but hopefully this will be the last time we're going to this dr. WE're trying to find one closer. Plus I thnk my mum is coming up to visit, but you can never count on her doing what she says.
