waitwhat I have wondered if anyone has done that. Sometimes the moment hits when I'm in the middle of feeding him and I have to decide to either put him down and risk spit up or try to quickly burp him and make it in time.

Random: Someone in my neighborhood is lighting off fireworks at 9:45 in the morning, I'm assuming this means Trump is being sworn in. My poor dog was mid-piss when a firework went off and he came running inside, sliding around on the hardwood floors like a cartoon character.

tjanca22 now that's a confession! Dying a little bit.
goldenlove3 yep. It's done. And LGBT, civil rights, and climate change pages have all been removed from the Whitehouse website in the issues section. I did N's second a day video of her in RNP in front of the TV as Obama's were leaving in helicopter, she is appropriately screaming her head off.

goldenlove3 Yeah... he was sworn in at noon (eta eastern time). I'm trying so hard to not to think about it. I really feel like it's the Twilight Zone. Along the same lines, tallblonde sounds like N had an appropriate response. And seriously? They already took those down? What a terrible omen.
danib Eww! Lillian spit up into DH's mouth once. It was..really gross but hilarious.
waitwhat Have done. Both with Lillian and Lilah. While nursing even.
I took both boys to their well visits this morning (3 years, 2 months). A didn't want to cooperate for the hearing test so they will redo at age 4. We postponed C's shots until after surgery. The pedi didn't want him to have a reaction that would delay surgery.
I had a great FFFC the other day but I can't remember now...gah!

tallblonde ugh not a good sign for things to come. I turned on the news for about 5 minutes before I was feeling sick to my stomach. Seeing him signing executive orders was too much. How did we get here??

All I can think of for a fffc is that I put my hair up in a ponytail instead of washing it this morning after Lilah spit up on it.
We've had a pretty chill day so far. Lillian slept until almost 8 again so we had a late start. Breakfast, vacuumed, went to a friend's house for a bit, lunch, and took a short walk. Picking up DH early and then it's the weekend! There's a chance of thunderstorms tomorrow, but I hope they don't come so we can enjoy a pretty weekend.
Hi! I had a hair appt (cut and color) this am so my mom came over to watch the children. She even got C to take pumped bottle of milk!!! (She said it took literally a half hour before C deigned to eat...my mom has the patience of a saint).
My confession: sometimes I think my husband's illnesses are psychosomatic. Or that maybe he fakes sick. I'm not sure, but it drives me nuts, and then I feel like a jerk bc he's so helpful when I'm sick. And I want to be like, 'Buck up, this is all in your head!'

I thought of a confession.
My MIL and GMIL came over this morning to hang out. I took that opportunity to go do some errands, just me and the toddler. When I got back my MIL immediately handed me the baby and said "you must have really missed him!". Confession, I didn't really miss him. I mean, I wasn't even gone 2 hours, and it was nice not having a baby attached to me during that time.
Also I'm pretty sure AF has returned. I'm 9 weeks PP exactly today and BF constantly. What the actual. I posted the other day about spotting after exercise, which happened the past two days but then stopped. This afternoon it came back heavier and I hadn't exercised. I called my OB and they think it's a period, but told me to ease up on the exercise over the weekend just in case and check in with them on Monday. This sucks and I'm grumpy.
goldenlove3, our tree is still up too! 😉 But with DH not being home and us doing Christmas this Sunday (he's driving my mom home tomorrow) it's my excuse! Also, first picture of yours I could see in a while! I thought it was just me! buckyb, I always forget my confessions on Friday!
Re White House website: I thought they changed the website over to new administration at noon and it may take a few days (as Trump plans a long weekend) before they put up what they believe are pressing issues.
Fffc: I get tingling sensations in my nether region when L breastfeeds!?!
waitwhat, I take L to the bathroom all the time! Not always in a carrier!
Re carrying the baby while using the bathroom, call me gross but I can't remember the last time I used the bathroom alone - maybe this happens once a week. I just can't justify putting down a crying baby to go, figure I'll save myself the stress and just take with me.
dashook We are convinced one of the babies' first word will be "fuck".
Important stuff first: FFFC - no matter how much I bathe little man he smells like ravioli cheese bc of his rolls that get so sweaty. FFFC#2: I kind of like the smell.
So things have been nuts here, I'm trying so hard to not just "survive" but actually thrive. I keep hearing from twin moms and dads "oh that first year is just about survival, I don't remember anything about the first year, trust me it gets better".... But as friggin insanely stressful and crazy it is, easily the HARDEST challenge I've ever faced in life - I don't want to wish away this first year or look back and wish I took it in more.
So I've been working a lot on being present and throwing myself into this 100000%. This means we've been fine tuning a feeding/nap schedule and arrangement (both want to fall asleep in my arms it took some creative design), taking daily walks (which they LOVE! but by god is it hard to push that thing with 20+ lbs of baby plus two 8lb car seats and then the frame on top of it), and getting out to the grocery store, cooking dinner, and working on moms stress levels. Today was the best day yet with ZERO crying except for once when I had to take a bottle out of Alecs mouth to burp Adeline bc she was spitting up.
I need to go back and reread the past few days posts. I hope I didn't miss anything too critical.
LizInFL I do the same thing to my H when he's sick, but I'm not so subtle. He calls me out all the time. And then I only half feel bad for not feeling bad for him.
MH hurt his knee playing basketball last night. I know he's not faking it but i do think he's exaggerating his injury just a bit and I'm having trouble feigning sympathy. I asked him to change a diaper last night and the noises he made when getting out of bed were over the top. It's a good thing it was dark so he couldn't see my eyes roll out of my head.
FFFC, dream edition: I've been having a lot of dreams lately where MH sticks fingers up my butt. Not during sex just like hanging out and he's in my butt. We have never and shall never butt stuff (it's not our thing). In one dream, he had to go take care of something so he removed his hand at the wrist (like twist and pull and off it came) and left it in my butt while he went away.
I think your subconscious is wavering on that no butt stuff rule. 😂
