Hello...Sorry I have been soo "out of sorts" lately but I have been reading scarey stuff on the internet about higher incidence of subdural hemotomas with this condition etc etc..I guess I need to wait and talk to the neurologist about all this instead of reading crap I know nothing about...Thanks for being buddies and understanding!!!!

We did 9 month pics yessterday..She is such a toot!!! I just laugh at how silly and chatty she has become!!!
Take care!!

ok, i get the crappy mother of the year award. i fell at church and the baby went flying across the pavement. he's got a scrape on his head. we went to the er and they did a cat scan. he's ok but i feel like sh1t. everytime i see his little head i want to cry.

rr: those are awesome pics!! i don't know how you would choose. STAY OFF THE INTERNET!! i learned that when i was pregnant. there's just too much info that most likely doesn't pertain ty you!!

hope everyone is having a great day.

Oh Karen...please don't feel soo bad!! I can attest to the fact that they bounce pretty well!! Glad everything went OK at the ER. :grouphug:

RR, Did you not learn from reading too much online while PG?!?! Stop reading everything!! When do you go to see the neurologist? I don't have any idea how I would choose one of those proofs!! You must go broke from pics!! :lol: I love them all! I think #6,1 & 9 are really cute.

hi guys,

little guy is fine, i'm a basket case. every time i closed my eyes last night i just saw the baby skidding away from me on the pavement. i know i didn't fall on purpose, it just seems like any mother worth her salt would have hung on to the baby.

being paged...

RR- Oh that's cool, then you can just get whatever copies you want.

Karen- I went through the same thing when Peter fell off the kitchen counter. Even though it was DH there and not me, I can still picture it, and did constantly for quite awhile. It's really hard to get past, but eventually you will. Glad he's OK!!

Hi guys,

We went to the pedi and he's still fine!! I feel better. I still feel quesy everytime I look at his little head but I am getting better. Little guy is turning into a real roly poly!! He weighed in at 15.5 today with his clothes on. He was 14.9 at the ER yesterday. Could his clothes weigh 12 oz?

OK, on to other things. We got a Tivo the other day and it is so AWESOME!! I know I watch way too much TV, but what else am I gonna do while nursling is busy? I tape stuff at night to watch the next day 'cause I don't like soaps or talk shows. :). With TIVO you just tell it the name of what you want and then it figures out when it's on and takes care of it. You don't have to watch it in order either. It's way cool.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Here are some pics of my poor boy (it looked much worse to me) this is from last night:

Good Morning Guys,

Well, I feel like a new person today. Little Guy is sleeping in his crib :high: so I actually got the chance to clean the bathroom. First time in two weeks!! :o It always seems to get away from me!! I don't like to clean with him in there so I tend to put it off.

I have been playing with the Tivo today and I have decided that I cannot watch Trauma: Life in the ER anymore. They had a baby that had a seizure and I just cried through the whole thing. Hmm. I set it to tape Maternity Ward too. Maybe I should just delete it without even trying to watch it. :(

We were supposed to go to Story Time today but it was raining really hard and he was sleeping when it was time to go. Think we will take a pass today. I'm not sure how I feel about the MOMS Club. I signed up for the playgroup but never got any info. I contacted the pres. and they finally emailed me a list of the people in my group. Said they didn't have my email (they had my phone number on the list). Then I emailed the person they told me to contact and never heard anything. I'm going to call her, but I feel kinda funny. If you were the established members of a group wouldn't you contact the new person? I'm probably just being too sensitive.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hey Karen, glad you're feeling better! I would feel the same as you about the playgroup, but I tend to be overly sensitive too. Actually, I probably would not have even made the move to call at all...I'm very shy around new people.

Well, it looks like my days as a SAHM may be numbered. :( I got a call from a woman at my recruiter's office today and they've got a position at a pharma in Florham Park, in a brand spankin' new building right down the road from DH. It pays 5K more than I was making at my old job, & it's business casual. They need someone immediately though, so I may have to work temp until they do my background check and hire me perm. That's OK cause they said they can pay me 18/hr. to temp, which is close enough to what I was making that I could do it and not worry about the cost of daycare for a couple weeks.

As much as I want to continue being a SAHM, we really do need me to be working F/T right now. I was looking forward to nursing Peter exclusively til he's a year (no bottles), but I guess we'll be going back to it. I'll probably just send formula bottles to daycare with his food, and save whatever I pump for home. I will probably only have to pump once a day, around lunch, since he's not nursing that much. Doubt I'll get more than a couple oz. at that session. Last time I tried to pump some, I got about 2 oz. I guess what I could do is pump enough for comfort and train my body to just make enough for evenings? But then what about wekeends? I guess it'll just adjust??

Just got Peter down for his afternoon nap about 10 min. ago. :rolleyes: Guess he's growing up and can stay awake longer now. He didn't go down for his AM nap until 10.

He's starting to test himself standing without holding on now! :eek: A couple times we've found him trying to let go! Today I had him by one hand and he told 3 steps!! Sniff, sniff...my little baby is growing up!!

Lauren--It doesnt take long for the boobies to adjust..I even nursed Kaylee after her MRI and still didnt have problems the next day..I am ready to pop around 7:30 Pm and then I nurse at 6am...It adjusts quickly...
Yeah on Petey standing..Kaylee can sit unassisted for short times but cannot pull up on her own or sit unless I put her that way d/t the weight of her head...It is depressing to see her strain but not get up, but we will be there soon..Yeah on the job!!!

The Pedi called me..We have an appointment 9/30 with the NeuroSurgeon..She said not to worry, cuz Kaylee's space was sooo slightly enlarged that It took 2 radiologists to find it..She thinks all will be well shortly(a year or so)...

Karen--He looked happy skinned head and all!!! He is growing fast..He is gonna pass up my little Doodle bug before U know it!!!
She is soo funny, says Bye-bye, mama, dada and points to her bottle and says bah bah...They are growing up!!!!
Take care all!!

RR, it must be adorable to hear her say bye-bye! Peter's favorite word these days is Dada. Don't here Mama much anymore unless he's crying cause he fell! :lol: He is constantly making sounds, like F's and other things, sounds like he's talking in sentences sometimes...but of course none of it makes sense!! :lol:

I'm sure she's just gonna pop up to sitting one day when you're not paying attention!! Peter's just a monster all over! We call him Hercules or BamBam!!

Happy 5 Months Alex!! :cele So what is he doing new these days??

Karen, I guess you could consider that maybe she's on vacation, although it's unlikely this time of year. I would probably blow it off and find another one, or just go hang out in the park. I've gone to the park a few times with Peter, hoping to meet some moms with kids close to his age, but no luck. Most of them are there with friends and older kids.

RR, aren't you the efficient one!! :lol:

Good Morning!!

Alex slept in until almost 10 this morning!! OK, till 7:30 in his bed and the rest in mine. Still, I appreciated the sleep. It was almost 12 when I got him down. He slept from 8:30 - 10 then he was up. Ugh. I get so tired I just wanted him to sleep so bad. The past couple of nights he has not used the paci to go to sleep, he's been sucking on his fingers but he needs the paci as soon as I lay him down. Hopefully this too will pass! He's still working on those teeth. The hands are constantly in his mouth and he is drooling copious amounts.

OK, he's no longer happy in the bouncy. Gotta go. Hope everyone is having a super day.

Wow Karen, that's awesome!! Glad you got some extra sleep! Peter slept in this AM too...until 7:45. :rolleyes: That was because he was up soo much during the night I think.
