waitwhat that's awesome that y'all have such a good relationship. My mom and I are best friends, too. I think that's why I'm dreading this move so much...fortunately my DH is very tolerant about my spending time so much time with my parents and luckily he likes them a lot!
We went to church this morning and just finished up lunch. Now DH and B are going to do some yard work while I take C to Target.
We left her in the church nursery for the first time this morning and the ladies pronounced her "a doll". There was another baby, Lucy, there today--similar age and coloring, both in pastel striped dresses with white hair bows. It was so funny, they looked like sisters! Apparently they hung out together
Anyone else have a distracted eater? L loves to talk and smile when eating!?! Even at 3am! It takes him 5-10 minutes just to latch on and after 8 minutes he's back to coo-ing and smiling ... it's really hard to not smile at him which probably makes it worse.
I got to leave the house all by myself twice today! This morning I went to Orangetheory and then in the afternoon I went to a postpartum yoga class. The truth is I had forgotten about the yoga class when I requested leave to go to Orangetheory but luckily H was on board with me doing both!
Speaking of H, I'm a total broken record but the man is driving me insane. We're going to his parents' house for dinner at 6 (22 minutes from now) but he just walked outside to take DS around on his trike. This was supposed to happen over an hour ago when the kid first woke up from his nap. H takes longer to do anything than anyone else I've ever known. No sense of urgency whatsoever and yet he keeps snapping at the toddler, who actually has been very well behaved considering he has had his hopes of bike riding on ice for an hour.
H also keeps making comments about wanting to DTD later and I can't think of many things that sound less appealing ATM.
jubilantsquirrel, I've always wanted to do that! My friend did it one year and I was supposed to do it with her the following year but her H got transferred to Cali, so never got to do it before we moved! #jealous
dashook, what is orangetheory? I saw the gyms but is it a special program or just a line of gyms? I'm sorry yh is being slow!
Hi everyone! Sorry I have been mia. Life with two kids has been way busier than I ever imagined. Thanks @tjanca22for the shout out!
C turned 4 months last week. He's rolling back to belly but still hasn't figured out belly to back. He's such a chatterbox and is super smiley these days.
My brother was in town this weekend and I'm bummed we didn't get to do much. DS1 has been sick all weekend...fever, pink eye, and upset stomach. I think I did five loads of laundry today. He'll have to stay home tomorrow so I need to log on my computer to see what meetings I need to reschedule.
cheshie6 Yes, she can get distracted at times. It's pretty normal from this point as they are curious about everything! To combat the nighttime distractions, do you try to nurse in the dark or look somewhere else?
dashook Yay for getting out twice! Sorry your H is so slow and snappy. My H can be defensive, but mostly I wish he'd get Lillian to bed earlier. He's always complaining about how tired he is, but he doesn't take her to bed until pretty late. So we end up with almost no time alone.
cheshie6, Orangetheory is basically an hour long group HIIT class, broken into strength and cardio segments. You wear a heart rate monitor and it's synced to a Bluetooth so your heart rate is displayed on a screen throughout the workout.
The square with your name in it changes colors depending on your heart rate. The goal is to work out in the orange or red zone (84% effort or higher) for at least 12 of the 60 minutes in order to achieve higher metabolic function for the 36 hours after the workout.
Glad to see the checkin buckyb and hopefully LO starts to feel better soon!
Add me to the annoyed with H club. If you're going to be useless all day, at least warn me so I can mentally prepare! You see me nursing a baby while trying to unload the dishwasher so I can get to bed at a decent time. There is a pause button on Netflix, learn to use it!
So, all of DH's and my drinking games have a Finish Your Drink rule. Tonight two of them somehow came up and it was my bright idea to do a shot of Fireball in lieu of downing our actual drinks. My first one went down the wrong pipe and let me tell you, Fireball down the wrong pipe is the stuff of nightmares. Just consider that a PSA or whatnot.
I really think that if these babies enjoyed sleep half as much as I do, then the answer would be really really good lol. I'm doing much much better than last week, dare I say close to excited even ☺️
Anyone have any insight into this before I contact the pedi. AV is definitely not sick. She's absolutely 100% fine looking/sounding during the day. But every single night she gets congested after sleeping for a few hours and I think this is the cause of her constant restlessness from midnight on. Besides feeling badly for her, it's really affecting both of our sleep. It doesn't matter where I lay her, or if she's flat or upright. My last guess is allergies - but our room and bed etc are all pretty much brand new and she spent how many months in there without this issue.
kleigh do you have a humidifier in the room she is sleeping? I only ask/suggest because a week or so J was so congested as well. He sounded so stuffy like he was trying so hard to breath. And he was struggling to nurse with his stuffy nose. I've had a humidifier in his room the last week and it has made a world of difference. Not sure if it's that simple but thought I'd throw it out there.
We do! And I tried it on and off (off thinking what if there's dust or mold in there I don't/can't see)... Neither made a difference
ETA me and H have bad allergies and I'm like "nooooooooo" I hope she's not getting it from us. I also get nasally congested/inflamed laying down overnight. I don't want to believe at 5 mo old she's got that already.
kleigh H has seemed a bit congested this week (mostly when lying down). He's also droolong like crazy with teething, so I'm wondering if there may be a connection? Like perhaps some of the excess saliva is pooling back there or something?
. Ooooh I like this theory. That would explain how she was fine weeks ago but not now. Also would mean it's temporary. Also, interestingly, when she's up at 1/2/3/4 with this congestion she has her fingers in her mouth (after bottles/not hungry/doesn't want paci).
