Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

NEL-She is so big and starting to look like K:-) She and E sound like clones, except he's more strong willed I think. He was 22 lbs and 30 in at his 1 year appt, but he's the shortest baby in our moms group, I thought he was short, but maybe not. So funny! E had his first ER visit this weekend:-( He...

Missy-Jenna looks so cute. I love the ponytail on the top of her head! MP-B was 5 so he understood everything...plus he came to our birthing classes with us so he was all up and through the pelvis and the "newterus" and umbilical cords and pretty much every anatomical thing. We did find so...

tourmaline! welcome back!!!

Just a PSA for Niel and AMC and others who may be dealing with Pca and anemia. My anemia was very bad during my pregnancy (hemoglobin of 8 and ferratin of 4). I didn't realize it and my OB was rather negligent in never saying anything about it. I was on the verge of passing out everytime I walked up...

Re: Choosing child's mattress (plus bed transition)

B is in a twin bunk bed and we got the top rated mattresses from walmart.com.
