Hey you :)

I haven't been on in awhile.....Went to GWL for Daniel's birthday on the weekend, and now I'm getting ready for Canadian Thanksgiving this coming weekend - we're hosting Lou's family here, kind of combining it with Daniel's birthday celebration.  

How are things with you? :)

I started doing daycare for this cute 3 year old girl. She walked over to me while I was changing Daltons diaper and said "Eww! he's got a tail!" I woulda feel on the floor but I was already there!!

I like that name, at least she is getting her name from family, my little girl is getting her first name from a star trek character, but I did say I wanted an old name and Kathryn fit that. My mother in law has always said she can't wait for her first grandchild to be born, she wants to come out but now she can't she seems so upset. She won't have any vacation time left since she had to put her parents in a home.

So what name do you have in mind? If my husband and I ever have a boy together it will be easy to name him cause we will name him after his dad. I'm having a girl too, Kathryn Rain, i really like the Rain part wondering if I should added it in with Kathryn as her first name so I will get to use it more.

Wow I totally agree with what you said in the circumcision topic. People have their own opinions and that's fine, but to tell people that choosing a certain way is wrong or a bad decision is really ignorant. as a parent we make those decisions and saying they are wrong can make parent's feel like failures. I'm glad to see someone with a clear mind. I'm tired of people voicing their opinions in a way that makes people feel like crap for the counter argument.

Argh!  That really ***** :(  I hope they let you know either way, rather than leave you hanging....

Me, I'm annoyed because I emailed La Leche League (about the issue with Gil and the weaning) on Sunday, and I still haven't heard anything back!  I actually called and left a message one of their Leaders this morning and have yet to talk to anyone.  I have a friend in another province who is an accredited LLL leader, and she's given me a bit of advice and forwarded me a couple of excerpts from a book.  Thank God for her...sheesh!

Just try it out - hopefully it'll all work out and everyone will adjust just fine to the new arrangement.

You know, it could be a very GOOD thing for Josh to spend some one on one time with Elijah in the evenings while you're working.  Not easy, but it'll give them that time to bond....and force him to deal with him and spend time with him.  AND he just might have a better appreciation for all that you do :))

I think it's totally normal for you to be nervous about returning to work.  At least you'll be able to work and care for Elijah, because you can work shifts. How does Josh feel about it?

Thanks for the update on Ivy.  I really hope she has a smooth recovery - she's had more than her fair share of medical issues!!!

I'm so happy for you that it went well!!!!  

Have you heard anything from Ivy?  She was going in for her surgery today, right?

Thank you for the sweet note!  Normally I have my doctors and everyone who knows me on board with everything.  It's the ER that can't handle anyone outside the "box" and it's frustrating.

Ok....I'll keep a lookout for your message : )  Sorry to hear that it didn't go that great!

I just saw your status....congrats on Elijah's no. 2 in the potty!!  That's a huge accomplishment!!!  Daniel's pretty independent in the potty now, can even wipe himself, but needs an "inspection" afterwards to make sure he really did wash his hands (can't always rely on the word of an almost 4 year old, haha)....ahhhh, the joys of parenthood!! ;)

I tried NUK ones last night - no go.  But I'll try again.....you never know....

I mixed 3ozs. of formula into some cereal I gave him at lunchtime and he took that no problem.  I just asked about mixing cereal in with formula to put in a bottle on the forum, and Joy says that's a no-no unless it's for reflux or something.  Sigh.  I just thought that G might take the formula more readily if it tasted better....because he gobbles up cereal that's mixed with formula!    Why can't this be any easier??  Sheesh!!

I emailed a few women I know today, to see if I could get any advice/encouragement.  Advice was all over the map, from "cold turkey" to "don't listen to your doctor, talk to a lactation consultant instead".  I mean, I DO want to wean him.....it's not like I want to BF forever....

Thank you :)

He's already got teeth on the bottom - the top middle ones are coming in.  He hasn't bitten me yet but I know what you mean.... ;)

I read your journal about the problems you're having with your DH.  I haven't commented because I don't know that I can offer up any better support or advice than the other ladies who've posted already have.  I hope you can talk to him tonight and that it goes well and you can get through to him  ((hugs))  Hang in there.....I hope things look - and actually ARE - better after you talk to him this time!!

Thank-you so much for answering me about smoking.. I thought about what you said yesterday b/c I was so stress just some girl was driving and talking on her cell phone and almost hit my van (and where she would of hit would of hurt two of my children) i was so mad I walked into a store and asked for smokes payed for them and then I thought to my self "no I'm not going to buy another pack" and then I asked for my money back. Yes the guy looked at me like I was weird but I don't ccare. Thank-you so much for your words of hope.

Thanks.....Yeah, I thought I was ready to wean him, but there's a big difference betwene makeing the choice yourself and not feeling as though you have a choice, I guess.  I know I shouldn't feel like this - I mean, I gave him a good nearly 8 months of breastfeeding which is more than Daniel even got -  but I feel as though I'm letting him down somehow.
