Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Congrats, anchor! Having two boys will be awesome! Laila, good job on the rear facing! We struggled with DS1 because he didn't understand (or refused) to bend his legs. LC, it's so convenient that I'm pushing off switching over as long as I can! Plus, I'm not looking forward to the expense of THREE ...

Re: Calling all the Pregnant PS''ers

Is it weird that my 15 month old still fits comfortably in the chicco key fit carrier? :lol: He's such a peanut! DS1 moved to a convertible at 6 mos because he was huge. We have the Evenflo symphony which we love but the footprint is huge making for a really tight fit in our corolla.

Re: The grandmother thread

Hi, ladies! Congrats on the soon to be grandkiddos. I don't really belong here. My 19 year old DD is due in October...right before my 37th birthday. ;( as you can imagine, my feelings are mixed at best. Babies are a blessing and we will celebrate this little one's arrival just as we do all the babie...

Re: A cat sat on my steps meowing to come in... Now what? (P

Elliott, I hope everything works out. It takes a lot to do what you're doing. If my pup ever got away, I could only hope that a nice family would give him food, warmth and cuddles until we could be reunited.

Re:

Bright, cute kid you've got there! My u/s pics were never that good. The discomfort you're describing sounds normal and is probably RLP. I used to tell DH I had what felt like a running cramp only I wasn't doing anything close to jogging!

Re: Do you expect a favor in return for a favor?

I don't ever expect anything in return but, as the receiver of kind deeds, I'm compelled to give back. I'm the lucky recipient of lots of family help with our little ones and I'm always looking for ways to give back. I don't borrow or lend money though. I deal in baby clothes and equipment. :lol: on...

Jgator, we considered Montessori for N1 but the hours/location weren't ideal for us.

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Mayerling, N1 is a really picky eater. He doesn't even eat foods that most kids eat like pasta, chicken nuggets, eggs let alone fruits and vegetables. We waste so much money on the latter because he'll like apples for a week then decide he's not eating them anymore then we go back to bananas etc. et...

Re: Let's talk baby names

November, that's a really great point. Also, a lot of names that aren't in the top 10 nationally can be really popular regionally. My uterus is officially retired but I love baby names! I have an affinity for more "old fashioned names" but DH isn't usually a fan. We have a daughter and two...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

AMC, regarding the bed transition-instead of a mattress and box spring we have a thin mattress and bunky board for N2. It's cheaper than a mattress and box spring which is great since it'll probably get peed on and it's only about 12 inches off the ground. We don't have rails up but N2 sleeps on my ...

Re: PS Mommy thread with toddlers 12-36 months

Jgator, the pediatrician was not concerned about N2 at his 9 month visit but said if we were we could get an eval and wrote a script. N1 didn't crawl until he has 1 and walked shortly after but this seemed different. At 11 mos, N2 doesn't even try to pull himself up using his arms. He'll lean agains...

Just wanted to second what Bella said. N just started pooping on the potty out of nowhere last week. I guess he was just ready.

Over the weekend N asked me why I was peeing from my butt because pee is supposed to come from your penis. Ah, life with boys!
