That is exactly what I meant- Thanks!! I'm not sure how well signs will translate over since Teddy is constantly hearing 2 languages- so I question how much he understands but it can't hurt to try. When did you start introducing the signs?

I would think it would work fine with both languages--both you and DH could do the same sign to mean the same word in different languages--I'm sure he would get it.

I concur with Anna - Teddy is so grown up!

AFM - DH's sister had her baby today! This is all hearsay because I actually haven't seen her yet (DH was out of town today and I couldn't take Selin to the hospital with me). Apparently she started having contractions last night and she had a c/s early this morning. It's a boy!! His name is Bartu (no word on a middle name yet). I've never heard

Christine - How awesome! What a big baby!! I give credit to all you women who had big babies!! I hope the BF'ing goes well for her.


AFM - I had an AWESOME day today. I had a minor breakdown yesterday, so I am glad today went better. Gabby has a cold and DH is out of town deer hunting this weekend (Thank goodness it's his last hunting weekend until next fall). She isn't too bad wtih the cold, just wants to be held a lot, and be cuddly. which is fine, except when I have to get stuff done. But today my SIL, Niece and best friend, plus Gabby went to the Mall of America - our big mall here in MN - and went shopping. Not only were all the women there without their husbands, apparently it was the opening of the microsoft store, so it was packed. We had to park on the top ramp. But we got 3 adults, 2 car seats and two strollers into my Mazda 6. It was a tight squeeze, but we were able to do it. We had a ton of fun. we didn't buy anything, but walked a lot and went to dinner. The kids did well until the end of dinner.

Gabby wouldn't eat from her bottle - I think the milk was too cold and I had no good place to warm it up. So I sucked it up and breast fed her. she hates having a blanket over her and at this point I didn't really care about people seeing me - first time breast feeding in public and it went really well. She ate like a champ and didn't fuss too much about it and she was content and we went on our merry way.

Christine - Congrats auntie! A c/s for anything over 8 1/2??? That's ridiculous! ACOG guidelines suggests offering a c/s when estimated fetal weight is 4500 grams which is almost 10 pounds!

Jess - it sounds like you and Gabby had an awesome day even without DH! How fun - I love shopping with my little group of girlfriends (and babies, lol). And MOA is a great place to walk walk walk, especially when it's starting to get cold. Good for you for BFing in public! I'm so glad it went well - this country needs to see more BFing in public; maybe someday people will be less weirded out by it.

Christine - doesn't make sense to me, but people do what they want right?

AFM - I am getting a cold, my little peanut pie gave it to me. I was trying to be careful to not get it, but after she sneezed on me three or four times with breast milk in her mouth and it getting in my face, I think I should just throw in the towel. How do parents stay well with their kids getting sick? I usually only get one or maybe two colds an entire winter and I am starting on # 2 and it's not even Thanksgiving!

I am so crabby today..so I apologize in advance for this vent. My In-laws, DH, Gabby and I are driving up to Winnipeg Canada over Thanksgiving. We were supposed to be leaving on Wednesday night around 10 or 11, so that Gabby would sleep 90% of the way and we wouldn't have to stop so much. But last night my FIL sends out an email to all of us plus my SIL and BIL (Who aren't coming to Canada with us) and said "even with your trip to canada we should still get together for dinner on Thursday night." DH and I were like what? So I emailed back and said Aren't we going to canada on Wednesday. If they think that I am going to spend four days with them + a dinner they are sorely mistaken. We have to bring our dog down to my parents on Tuesday or Wednesday night before we leave and then pack up the babe. and I don't want to have to be up at their house until right when we leave because I need to keep her awake etc and want her in our house until then. I mean come on. We do the every other year thing with the holidays and as it is, this is supposed to be my parents year and we aren't going to be seeing them...

THe other thing is Since DH and I are both back to work now we had decided that we would trade off getting up with Peanut in the middle of the night if she gets up. Well she just started getting up in the middle of the night again last Thursday and I got up with her. DH was gone deer hunting all weekend. and then Sunday night I got up with her because I was about to explode and had leaked all over the bed anyway, so I thought it would be easier. Last night I asked him if he would get up with her or if I was going to and he goes, we will talk about it when she wakes up. So 4:30 rolled around and she started crying and he just layed there. I tried to ask him if he was going ot get up with her and he didn't say anything. So I got up with her. I got back into bed and went to sleep around 5:00 I asked him if he could take her to daycare so at least I could get some extra sleep. If I take her I have to gt ready and stuff, and Tuesdays I work from home. So anyway when we both got up I said you are going to need to get up with her tonight. and he apologized for not getting up wtih her last night and said that he was pretending to sleep because he knew I would get up wtih her. GRRRR! Why does he get the choice to do that? I mean I love her and I know I am the mom, but seriously, there was milk in the fridge he could have taken care of her and given me a break. He has only gotten up with her once maybe twice since she was born.

Okay I am done. Thanks for listening.
