I thought I would try starting a new thread since the other one is looking so funky and is almost impossible to read.

Thanks for starting this! I was having such trouble with the old one, so maybe I can keep up with this one. It is easier to read on my phone, but I think that's because the signatures aren't shown on my phone.

Ruby - Have a blast at your girls day! That sounds like a ton of fun!

Waving hi to everyone else!

AFM - DH and I went out last night on our first date, it was just a trip to the mall and dinner, only gone a few hours, but it was nice to get away and I trusted her in my cousin's hands. I am a little bummed he is going hunting again. He was there two weeks ago for just the weekend, but tonight he is leaving until Sunday. and then the first weekend in November he will be gone again. I am also going back to work on Monday....just for two days and then off for five and then back for three and then off for the weekend and then back to work full time on the 1st. I am a little apprehensive about going back to work. Part of me is super excited, but after leaving her last night for a few hours it was harder than I thought, so I am not sure how it's going to be for 8 hours. I was planning on working from home, but I don't think that will work because I will hear her cry and want to jump in and help, so I think I should go into the office and maybe just come home for lunch or something....have to talk to DH about it. Plus I am going to have to pump while at work, but I am sure it will all work out.

Another thing that has been on my mind is DH's parents....they have seen gabby about 10 times or so since she was born, that's not really the problem. The problem is they NEVER come down to see her, or ask to come over to see her. They go over to my BIL & SIL's all the time (Granted they live only 15 minutes away, we live about 35 minutes away) to visit with them and my niece who is 16 months. I know I really shouldn't care, because I don't care if I see them or not, but I want them to be part of my daughters life and right now they aren't. I don't remember if they saw my niece when she was this age, so I am hoping it's just because she is an infant and it will be better when she gets older. She is just changing so much and they don't even realize how much she has changed.

Anyway thanks for listening.

I'm sorry about your inlaws. I have a similar problem. Though they are like 5 hours away they never offer to come down here and see Simon. They have only come here once and that was the weekend after he was born. Otherwise its always when are we coming there to see him. My mom was here when he was born and she travled all the way to Arkanas when we went down there to see him again. It gets really frustrating as I know that both of my BIL live in the same town as my IL and I wonder if and when they have kids if ours will get tossed to the side because they don't live in the same place. (((hugs)) to you.

Ruby, Yeah for a girls day! I am jelouse, I wish I had friends to do something like that with. I am going to start selling tupperwear and there is a training day on Sat so hopfully I'll get to go to that. Though part of me is feeling guilty for spending my day off there instead of with Simon.

I completly understand how the job thing would be. I see where you are coming from. What did your previous boss say about you turning it down? I finally got a job offer but I can't take that big of a pay cut and it really stinks. I hope something comes along for you as I know you said you wanted to get back into working.

We definitely had problems with the rice cereal backing Teddy up in the beginning.So I ended up sticking to just plain veggies, meats and fruits pureed. Then after about 4-6 weeks when he was eating really well I added it back in but also would mix it with pureed prunes (Gerber has a good one out just prunes and water as the ingredients). Now he doesn't have any problems with any food backing him up but I think it really took his system 2 months of eating solids to adjust. I also think some babies are more sensitive then others to it. For us it was very clearly the cereal though.

It is awesome that Tenley is so mobile. A friend of mine has a daughter who is also moving around the room and I think it is so neat. Teddy is really trying but he hasn't figured out that he has to lift his stomach. We've shown him a few times but he doesn't really get it. So he ends up pushing himself backward a little bit and then getting really really frustrated and starting to cry. LOL

I know he'll get it eventually but I hope it is somewhat soon as he is definitely not pleased that he can't get to all the things he wants to touch!

Hi! Cara - I didn't even introduce grains until a couple of weeks ago (@9.5mths) & even now it's slowing down his BM's. I never will understand why the Ped's always say to start with it. Fruits & veggies are the easiest things to digest & should be their only food for a while. I know what you mean abt the crawling- Jas started at 6.5 mths & is now completely unstoppable! Ugg!

Ash & Noel - Thanks for chiming in on the cereal issue, it does make sense that the fruits and veggies would be easier to digest.
