Christine Sorry to hear about Selin and the issues. I hope you find someone to watch her.
David is also sick. His sitter was on vacation from the Friday before Labor Day until Monday and he was at a back up. He had a good time but I wonder if maybe he got something from one of the kids. He had a runny nose since last Monday but no other symptoms. We figured it was teething as he's been holding his mouth a lot. Well Monday evening he started getting chest congestion. A little coughing but not much. Well she said he was fussy all day yesterday and she took his temp and it was 99 which our pediatrician does not consider a fever. By the time he went to bed, it was almost 102. I waited to give him motrin before bed. So I am hoping I don't have to keep him home today but I probably will. We will see when he gets up.

Oh, Christine! I'm so sorry!!
I'm having a hard time.
Christine - ugh, so sorry you are dealing with so much at the moment! I hope you get the sitter situation sorted out asap :(
Cassie, glad to hear you are enjoying the job!
Andi - loved to see your update. The girls are getting so big :) Having twins must be such hard work, you're doing a great job!
Emmy - I'm sorry to hear you feel that way. At least you already notice you're heading the way of a depression so hopefully you can steer away from it in time. I second what Ash said, try and go out as much as possible. Fresh air and physical activities also help ease a depression. You say that you haven't really made any good friends in the mum's group yet but I'm sure it will happen over time - of course you won't click with everyone but there will be some ladies that you can connect with! Children are great for finding friends; people arer much more approachable if you already have something in common that you can easily talk about. I hope you feel better soon, KUP!
Ash - no, I don't carry Teddy at all anymore... I used to still occasionally pick him up when pg, but then I had the c-section so I wasn't allowed to lift him anymore. So we taught him to climb into his bed, up on the high chair, into the car seat, ..., by himself. I think in this respect we had the perfect timing as he was both physically able and mentally ready for this (it coincided with his toddler "I do it on my own" mindset). And he's quite good at walking with me (as in, he stays with me rather than just runs off) anyway. I'm glad I didn't get a double buggy as Teddy hates sitting in his pushchair these days andf we only really put him in if we need to; the sling works out great! -How are you doing? Are you still planning to TTC towards the end of the year?
AFM just had the worst night in weeks; Bo has never been a great sleeper but last night he woke up 5(!) times after his dream feed at 10pm. I'm shattered!
Sandy - have a great time at the game this weekend! I'm sure you'll just get a little razzed from the home team.
Morgan - We actually did end up getting a deep freezer because pumped milk was taking over our freezer.

Amy, we have a crib at home. We have been house sitting for my folks all week since they are out of town. He has a pack and play here but he is almost to long for it. So we thought we would try and see what he did in the big bed.
