Sorry to hear about the ladies (and your families and friends) affected by the fires in Cali.

Back in the day, I waited for a long time for him to ask me out. He used to a lot moodier (we assume cuz of hormones), but I still hung around him cuz I figured something was better than nothing. Then, I started to realize it wasn't gonna happen, but I'd given him most of my 20's by then and it was hard to emotional disconnect. We did "break up" a couple years ago, but were back at it 2 weeks later. (lol) And now we're here. Maybe I'll find my backbone again soon, but for now, I don't wanna rock the boat too much.

It's nice to hear everyone's LOs are get stronger and are closer to being mobile. Alex still doesn't like his tummy time, but he's come so close to rolling over a few times. And I can tell he wants to sit up on his own. Hopefully soon. : )

I hear ya. Things are going well so why stir the pot. If you're happy, do you. I'm surprised you feel comfortable asking for a second kid vs label. A kid is a lifelong commitment/connection while a bf/gf can always breakup. I'm saying that as encouragement that you can do it when you're ready because he is clearly committed to his family with you. So don't be nervous but also just do it when you're ready.

That's great that Alex is showing signs of sitting and rolling! I barely get to do tummy time with A because he's at daycare all day . When he comes home he is to exhausted for it. It broke my heart because I could tell he missed me. I had to put him in my ergo carrier and every time he fell asleep and I tried to set him down he would cry for me. I just hate it because he gots so sweaty and warm in both my sling and ergo which is odd because I got the cool air mesh for that exact reason

I'm really irritated with my district. The air here has been unhealthy all week and will continue through the weekend. But they won't close the school tomorrow even though kids and staff are getting sick because it would create a burden on our working families to provide childcare. Which fundamentally makes me angry at the idea that someone cannot literally care for their child.. Which I get why. We're a low income county generally so it's two working parents often with multiple jobs, but it really pisses me off when you endanger your kids. I had a group running around in the smoke for an hour in my complex until they stopped because they started getting dizzy and coughing. Like where the f* are your parents?! I get I can't judge but ffs this is their health. I'm packing up A to go to my mom's because their air is out of the red zone starting today and nagging my parents until they take my brother a mask.

Anyway sorry for my 4am pumping rantings. A has been stirring for 20m and I'm praying he lets me finish pumping/falls back asleep. Because I really would love this 8pm to 6am sleep schedule to stick. Esp since I start work on Monday. Which I don't look forward to. I got sick just going to a meeting for two hours because the rooms make me sick and now the air.

Dobby that's horrible.. I'll be praying for you.

Pretty that's so exciting that A is almost rolling over!!

P has been doing great on the new formula. She's drinking between 21-24oz daily now and she's sleeping from 8pm to 7am with one feeding in between usually around 4am. I'm hoping to get rid of that once and get 11 hours straight. She's such a great baby and she's so happy all the time. We signed her up for the dedication at church the first weekend of November and I got her a coordinating outfit with DH and I so we can get professional pictures there and use them for our holiday cards.. I cannot believe Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner!!!

Dobby that's ridiculous. They closed schools around here for the fire and the air quality probably wasn't half as bad as it is up there!

Gag that sleep sounds amazing. C teased me with two nights of 1030 to 530, but the past few nights/days she's been constantly on my boobs! I feel like she's spurting. Either that or she knows I'm taking them with me to work on Monday

You ladies are sweet it's really not my problem. The quality is clearing up so I imagine come Monday (my first day back) they'll be back to outdoor recess/things will be ok. I just like to complain

Gag that is so awesome! A did that for a few days 7-6 with one wake up at 4, and now as long as he doesn't skip a daytime meal he's 8-6 without feeding. He'll wake and grunt but put himself back to sleep. I hope the pictures turn out nicely! And seriously it's crazy how the holidays are creeping up on us

Aww leson I agree maybe a spurt? Misery loves company that we both go back to work in two days. Idk actually on my way to my classroom now to prep

I hope you ladies have a good first day back to work! I was so so sad when it was time for me to return. I still wish I could be a sahm but it's gotten a lot easier.

I would love for d to sleep through the night even just once! She sleeps her longest stretch before midnight which is while I'm still at work so I haven't gotten anything more than broken sleep for weeks on end. She still won't sleep on her own either, not even for naps.

Weebles sorry to hear about the broken sleep I'm with you. Being a sham would be nice. At least until they start school. Sigh

So I had to have a guy arrested for flashing A. I can't even.

Dobby, what happened? That's terrible! Flashing anybody is horrible enough, but seriously, who flashes an infant? I'm so sorry. What a hard week for you.

Yeah idk. He is either mental or on drugs but idgafs. And the restaurant was packed with kids just 5 minutes later. But the time I registered what was happening and made the conscious decision it was time to put my CDT training and yellow belt in krav to good use, a guy put himself between A and the asshat and chased him out. SO would have probably sliced his dick off. I just hope I don't have to go to court. It's like one thing if it was me but how dare you and who the hell is that f*ed up to do that to a baby. Thankfully A was facing away/is 3 months old. He cried because I was getting heated on the phone with 911, but the guy never reached the stroller thanks to the manager. But ugh I wanted to puke and I was shaking. And I'm a little disturbed at how many people found it funny/laughed. Unless it was uncomfortable laughing idk.

Yikes, that sounds so stressful and frightening. Clearly the guy wasn't in his right mind but targeting an infant like that is just terrifying. I'm glad someone helped you two out, and I'm sorry other people were laughing. I would guess it was shocked laughter, but people should have made sure you and A were OK instead of just laughing it off.
