Name: Amanda
New LO's name: Elijah
LO's age: 15 weeks

Clothing size: 6 months (Not only is he a little porker, but he is muscular, and long)

Latest 'thing': Pulling every piece of fabric to his mouth that he can; trying to sit up in his carseat, stroller, bouncy seat, swing; grinning at me while nursing.
Any frustrations?: He's had a pretty bad yeast infection (just like his sisters had), but the creams the doctor reminded me of are helping. The disposable diapers we were using temporarily actually made it worse when he was sweating in the heat. The outer hip and back area that is mostly plastic was HORRIBLE!
What is your BC method?: The marvelous tubal ligation!
How are you feeling overall?: I'm alright. Overwhelmed that DH just had shoulder surgery. My stepson, who has Aspergers, is having a really hard time listening/following instructions. My daughters just got home from their dad's house, so we have a really full house. PHEW! Is it nap time yet?
Any news in your life?: DH's surgery, I'm working on the last 15 credits for my bachelor's degree, DH is going back to school in September, that's about it for now.
