How are ya'll?!? I am doing OK... I think though that instead of having lost my brain to my babies that I may actually be suffering post-traumatic stress after all that happened to me through the pregnancy and after. NOW I am back at work and my days are very structured so I think that is helping BUT I have bad ADD
So... baby milestones... hmmm... I think we all need to give our babies a break. My babies are 6 months in a couple of days and NOW they are really doing their "talking" and rolling and really noticing each other - soooo darn cute. My baby girl is a tantrum thrower and baby boy has such an even temperament - its funny to see how different they are. I think God plans the development this way or we would get sad that they get big so quickly but with all the "new stuff" they seem to do all the time its just too cute to be sad.
I don't belong to any mom's groups - nope... too busy working BUT I am grateful since the economy is so bad right now. I am not feeling it like so many families. I just have to pray and believe that people in this country will begin to focus on what's right and moral and pray that families once again become the cornerstone of this country. AMEN sistas!
So... still going strong with my new guy. He's so much like me that at times I don't like him at all
Its true ladies... see if you can live with someone who is just like you... (that said - we are NOT living together - yet)
Listen - WC is a beautiful lady as is Kipatte BUT I have NOT seen any of the rest of you... and REBECCAJ - Your email did NOT work!!! I have been meaning to tell you that...
Airplanes and babies huh!?!? Hmmmm... don't think I want to venture there. Airplanes and TODDLERS seems tougher so I think I will wait another 4 1/2 years... My older son took his first plane ride at the age of 4 years 9 months. He was good with it then. He was actually excited and I was a nervous wreck - always am at take-off. I live in PA/central NJ area and have been to Puerto Rico a number of times too but I won't be going on the 4 hour trip for a while...
WC - where did you go late August? How did you and the babies travel?
OK, we're eating just about everything and bottles are a little less. Before it was 4 bottles/day now they are doing 3 MAYBE 4 - depends... We did sleep through the night last night... FINALLY so I MAY start to get some sleep which I am sure will help with the post-traumatic stress. Anyway, they are still only doing rice cereal and I will continue that to 8 months maybe one year because introducing wheat too early can cause wheat allergies.
SO... QUESTION... does anyone else's babies have a reaction to mosquito or other bug stings/bites (whatever you want to call them)??? My babies get huge whelts that are really red and a tinge of yellow in the center. I am praying they don't have a bee allergy... God would that be bad!
OK, baby boy is fussing in bed half asleep right now so gotta go...
love you all...
