So freaking cute, Chloe! Love the little grunting. I just want to hug her!
Nice scans Jods. I'm guessing girl because of the lines. I really have no clue how to tell though.
Gobs, I didn't know H&M had maternity! We don't have any around here anyway, but I may have taken a drive to do some shopping.
I'm not a huge shopper overall, but not being able to buy clothes or shoes for the last nine months has really made me want to go on a shopping spree. It will probably be quite a few months until I'm ready for that though as I want to make sure I will get back to my pre-baby size before I go and spend a bunch of money.
Good morning all! After the worst week ever, I'm very glad to be starting a new one. H got a high fever early last week, so between DH and I we had to alternate staying home from work since he couldn't go to daycare, which for me was awful because it's one of our busiest times. This meant I ended up having to work up into the middle of the night to make up for being gone. H also would not sleep without someone sleeping with him, so we ended up taking turns sleeping with him on the daybed we have in his room. On Thursday his fever went down so I was so excited to get to send him to daycare.. but then when he came home at 5 I noticed a little rash around his hairline.. I took off his shirt and he was covered. Roseola. BAH. As of this morning though his rash is gone, so looks like we might have a normal week ahead of us.
oh no, daydream! That sounds awful. Does H normally sleep in the daybed or is that just there for when he gets older? I have only had one experience sharing a bed with G and i am not looking forward to doing it again, with the way she tosses and turns! I am glad to hear your week is off to a good start! Was roseola going around daycare?
SB, any baby yet??? So close!!
We have been busy with Gabby crawling all over the place, getting into everything. She is especially interested in cords and the buttons on our receiver. Chasing her around is giving us a workout, that's for sure! She is also more and more interested in feeding herself (with her fingers) and less and less purees with spoons, so I have to get clever again with food. It's a challenge!
How is everyone else doing?? Little P should be eating solids now, right? Hope you are enjoying your LO, Yum!
The daybed is in his room for my mom when she comes to stay and it will be his big boy bed in a few years. He actually sleeps pretty calmly, so it's not too bad, other than trying to share a twin bed with an infant. I sleep on my side and that bed is firmer than our pillowtop, so it's just a little more uncomfortable.
And no, we're not sure where he got it! Maybe swim lessons? Who knows.
How are the finger foods going? I really am having a hard time figuring out things to make for H. He'll have avocado, banana, organic string cheese, scrambled eggs, etc. all chopped up small. and the little star pastas.. but I really need to branch out and figure out new things to feed him. I did buy some zucchini and carrot this weekend, so maybe if I steam it and then can chop it up he can munch on those too.
Sorry you had such a rough week, dream!! Glad H is feeling better!
It must be tiring chasing Gabby around. Just wait until she starts Running around.
I'm getting excited...hopefully she comes sooner than later! I am still working and it's exhausting because I'm getting to the really uncomfortable stage. Being on my feet all day is too much, but I don't want to stop work early because I only have three months leave and I want to spend it all with my little girl. That still sounds strange to me...my little girl. I don't think it will really set in that I'm going to be someone's mother until she's here!
I remember that feeling well, SB! Both the uncomfortableness and the feeling that i would actually be a mom. I still can't believe it sometimes. But it's a great feeling! I hope she comes soon!
Daydream, for finger foods, we are pretty much doing the same. scrambled eggs, steamed carrots and broccoli, pieces of cheese, banana, avocado, toast, puffs, mum mums. I just made her some lentil casserole which I still spoon feed, but it was a great recipe i found on this site:http://www.homemade-baby-food-recipes.com/index.html It has helped me come up with some fun combinations of foods to make, although I tried one of the Beet recipes and she was not a fan. But she enjoyed the lentils (as did I!)
Edit: she also loves to eat kiwi, strawberries, plain yogurt, French toast and pancakes. Breakfast is the easiest meal of the day and works out great when we go out to a restaurant for brunch. Dinner is still difficult.
Sorry H had a bad week, Daydream. Hope you all have recovered!
It must be tiring running around after Gabby, I just hope it will be one way of getting rid of all this weight I'm putting on!
I've just got back fron th UK....and OMG, I have eaten SO much My hubbie's gonna freak when he sees me!!!
SB, I have the same feeling! I just can't see myself as a Mum!
