Happy Birthday Jo!

Angela, BEAUTIFUL nursery furniture. I can't wait to see it in the nursery!!

Steph. Hoping your time with mommy is a fun and memorable one.

Not a whole lot to say today. ((hallelujah chorus)) Amelia has been better. She now has 4 teeth that have come through in the past 3 wks. No WONDER the poor kids was miserable! She's been sweet the past two days. Just ADORABLE!

Love to you all.

P.S., Angela thanks for the heads up about the bottles. Steph actually mentioned it first but I too was wondering. I bet it's going to help us a great deal so thanks for sharing it with us!

Have a lovely week everyone!

Hi Ladies,

Angela – YAY on buying the baby furniture I am happy to hear that you got that done. I love the crib, it is similar to the one I have for Katelyn. Now you don’t have to stress about it. I am sorry to hear about Ethan’s leg. I will keep him in my prayers and pray that it isn’t anything more serious than being badly bruised which is causing him discomfort. Please let us know how the Dr appoint goes. Thanks for the info on the bottles. I have been saving mine for the next one, but will buy new nipples and paci’s. I think I have thrown most of the pacifiers away since Katelyn no longer uses them…which is funny because for the longest she was like Maggie from the Simpsons! Keep us posted on the name of you new baby boy!

Anna – sorry about the witch. I am glad to hear that Jo is feeling better! WOW one years old. Don’t even worry about not throwing a big bash. She isn’t going to remember it anyway LOL. What you have planned sounds GREAT! I know I have turned into one of those people that talk about their kid all the time, so I try to really only hang out with my friends with babies LOL. That way, I don’t feel bad because they are doing it too hee hee.

Rebekah – Thank! My mom and I are spending a lot of time together and it is certainly memorable…more on that below. Glad to hear Amelia is better.

AFM – well my Mom got in on Saturday and we told her about all the things we were planning on doing and she was on board with it all. Then while at the store looking for new carseat for Katelyn (Britax is waaaaay expensive so I might be doing a different brand, especially since I will need two!), my husband was carrying her and she suddenly threw up all over him. I thought it was because I had picked her up from her tummy earlier. Later that evening, she then had diarrhea. Then it just got worse, I still nurse Katelyn at nights and around 2:30 am Katelyn was up throwing up all over me, the bed, the bathroom. She threw up like 3 separate times within 1 hour. Poor little thing. My husband was cleaning me up and I was cleaning her up. Similar thing happened Sunday night around the same time. Needless to say my mom and I were up (she was keeping her baby company LOL) until about 4am each night. I had to cancel our party Sunday because I didn’t want my friends with 1 year olds getting sick and we didn’t need a bunch of people over with her being sick anyway. I went to the Dr’s and they said it was virus and had to run its course. Good thing is she is eating and keeping it down and she is NOT dehydrated. For some reason in the evenings she is throwing up just the breastmilk. Last night she managed not to throw up, but she was still gagging. It was very similar to when she would get acid reflux as a new born. But the Dr said she was looking good and it would probably last 1-4 days. The only down side is that she isn’t her happy peppy dancing singing self while my mom is here. But the good thing is my mom is here and she is taking care of ME while I am taking care of Katelyn.

Well I hope everyone has a great week. I will keep you posted on Katiebug.

Best,
Steph

Steph so sorry about Katelyn! That sucks! We haven't had our first gastro virus yet, but I know those days are coming! So glad your mom is there to help out! On the carseat, there are MANY good brands, I just chose Britax because it was the most convincing one to me when I actually compared them in person. One of our friends has Evenflo and loves it, others use Graco... you'll find one that you are comfortable with!

Bek, so glad Amelia is feeling better! It is so hard when they are sick or uncomfortable. hubby and I keep saying we can't WAIT till EThan can at least say, "it's my foot that hurts" or whatever it is. Right now we are guessing and it's scary!

Thanks for all the compliments on the nursery furniture! We have to get the walls painted, then my sister can do the murals, and I can't wait to see it all put together! Supposedly, a 5-6 week delivery window for the furniture, so I'd better get on the painting planning!

Ok really slow at work so lots of time to post. I'm feeling nostalgic for baby time and all of a sudden feel a very real urge to start ttcing again. Problem is DH will be pretty against it. It's his life it affects too so it will be a joint decision. He adores Jo so I wonder if he could be on board. If not he needs to get snipped so I no longer have baby thoughts, or at least know it will never happen.

Anyway, thinking out loud and thanks for all the birthday wishes!! Anna

I know we're both ttc next year but I don't think they're NOT stopping it either. So it took me for a loop. I wondered if I'd missed something.

Happy Birthday Jo!!!! Have a wonderful day with your Mommy and Daddy! Anna you have a great day with your now toddler!

Rebekah - LOL I am not pregnant, as Angela suspected, we need a car seat for my car and my hubby's. But you are correct we are no longer preventing.

Angela - Did you ever hear back from the Ortho department?

Flutter - how you doing?

Hi Happy Auntie!!!!

AFM - Still trying to get Katelyn better, she is recovering slowly. SHe will probably be 100% as soon as it is time for my Mom to go home . My Mom has been such a HUGE help, I don't know what I am going to do when she leaves.

Well back to work for me. Hope Jules, Beth, Laura, CJ, and the rest of the ladies are doing well!

Best,
Steph

Steph, glad Katelyn is mending, though I know it is so hard when they are not feeling well! My mother in law comes this weekend to stay a week, and I will be VERY glad to have the help so I know how you feel about your mom leaving!

We are just back from the ortho. Cannot BELIEVE my eyes and ears, but Ethan has fractured both his tibia AND fibia... I couldn't believe it! He only fell MAYBE six inches, off his little riding truck thingy. But the dr. explained it and said it happens ALL the time, and it always freaks the parents out because they think how could they have such an injury from a minor fall... he said at this age, their bones are still full of cartilage and are comparatively weaker than their joints (the opposite of an adult). In an adult, the bones are hard and strong and, if there is stress between a joint and a bone, the joint will usually lose and you get a sprain or torn ACL or twisted ankle, etc. But with toddlers, their bones are weaker than their joints, and they usually get breaks instead of joint injuries. That was news to me, but I guess it makes sense. He said they are so common they call it a "toddler fracture" and that it usually presents exactly like Ethan's - not too much pain or fuss when the injury occurs (because it is after all a minor fracture, not a whole-bone-break). Not too much swelling (we had NONE) and the child usually goes on to either limp a bit and then get over it (with parents none the wiser to the break) or they will get taken to an ortho for xrays and the fracture will be picked up... but he said he literally doesn't go a day in practice without seeing one. I believe him now, because the child in front of us checking out had on a boot just like EThan's!

So anyway ladies, be warned - if your child has a minor fall but seems to be limping, don't take your ped's word for it that it's prpobably nothing... my regular ped (whom I LOVE) is out right now, so we had to see the Dragon Lady (the other dr. in our practice's office near us) and I do NOT love that doctor. She told me she was SURE it wasn't broken and didn't think an xray was warranted. HA! That is the LAST time I will see her. If my dr. isn't there from now on, we will go to a different office for our practice. GRRRRR!!!!! My poor kid has had a BROKEN LEG for two weeks and I didn't know it! I can't compltely fault her, because even I didn't think there was even a POSSIBILITY it was BROKEN. but, she is the expert and that is why we pay her!!

Anyway, the upshot is, my little guy is handling it fine, and doesn't need a full cast (he gets this little walking boot, which just because of its size I must say is ADORABLE, though I'm not happy he has it at all!) He hasn't figured out how to walk in it yet, but hopefully it will not give him too much grief. He'll be in that for at least three weeks. And the ortho promises me it's just a basic, regular broken bone - NOT anything caused by something more serious (my father died of bone cancer that resulted from his prostate cancer, and toward the end he had multiple broken bones because they decayed with cancer... I could not shake that image when Ethan failed to get better quickly, and had been having nightmares that something much worse was wrong).

And next time we will go STRAIGHT to the ortho!! :wink:

Here's my little trooper. It's not bothering HIM half as much as me!
