What's new this morning??
My DS1 wore underwear to bed last night for the first time. Both DD (almost 6) and DS1 (4) are in Pullups usually still. Both DH and I were bed wetters until age 12, so we figured there was no hope for our kids!!! LOL. DD still has troubles staying dry, but DS1 has been dry a fair amount lately, so we let him wear underwear last night. He was so happy this morning! Granted, he got up early, I think to use the bathroom, but at least he got up and didn't just lie there and pee.
DS2 woke up covered, and I mean COVERED in green snot. His whole face. His PJ shirt - big green globs of snot all over it. His blankie.....BOOGERS. Ugh. Poor kid. He is eating a giant orange for breakfast.....bring on the Vit C!
I barely slept last night. I get "popcorn disease" when I eat like crap. It used to only happen when I ate popcorn. Then it started when I ate other food like potato chips, icecream, anything fatty. Yesterday I ate really badly (I ate like a whole box of graham crackers and kept on snacking until late in the evening on marshmallow cereal, wasn't even hungry....ate tons of cookies too....) so I was rolling around all night with a sore tummy, and stinky gas out of both ends. Blech. My own fault.
LOL "popcorn disease" Sorry you felt so terrible. Stomach aches when your guts are out of place already are pretty miserable. Nice going to your big boy! My DD struggles with nighttime too. Poor baby boy, I hope he feels better. BOTH of my kids have horrible head colds, so therefore DH & I both have them a bit too. Kids are so sick and coughing to the point that they don't sleep, which means I don't sleep. I haven't gotten more than 2 hours of uninterrupted sleep since Saturday night into Sunday. *sigh* After this week, dealing with a newborn's eating schedule will be cake.
Ugh, I hate when the whole house is sick.
I forgot how much sleep SUCKS the last few weeks of pregnancy. I remember last time just wanting baby to be born because I thought I'd sleep even better once he arrived. I hate constantly tossing and turning.
Ugh! DD came home from daycare last night with the sniffles too! I was hoping she didn't have a cold but then I realized that would be better than seasonal allergies!
Yay for your DS staying dry all night. We've been very lucky with DD's iron bladder. We still restrict her liquid intake before bed though, just in case.
So I washed and put away tiny pink clothes yesterday. Now I have some boy, girl and neutral ready to go! I haven't washed the cloth diapers yet but they were clean when they went into storage. I guess my hospital bag needs to happen soon. Oh, I made a big batch of tuna noodle casserole yesterday and froze 4 meals worth! Yay!
I wish I had more freezer space! I want to make freezer meals. Way to go!
I am going through all the clothes this week too. I already went through the "big" stuff (sizes 3-5) and got rid of *sniff sniff* all the GIRL stuff. My church is having a kids clothing swap, so at least the pretty girl stuff will get a new home! Now I am on to reorganizing the boys stuff in sizes NB-2T. I didn't put it away very nicely after DS2. He is in size 18-24 and almost 2T now, so I'm bringing all that stuff out. Also I need to bring out all the 0-3 stuff for new little man.
Sorry about the sick baby Sandra. It's especially hard (at least for me) the littler they are... SOrry you are feeling crummy too. Honestly, it sounds more like carb and sugar overload then anything else. When you feel like eating again, try and get in a good balance of protein and fat. It should help you feel satisfied and keep you from wanting to snack as much. - So weird, but we just got a new computer, and ever since I haven't been able to form "new paragraphs" when I respond in this forum. All I can do is make one giant paragraph. - About the bed wetting. My first dd was night and day trained at the same time, right at 2.5. My next was day trained shortly after 2, but it wasn't until she turned 3 (right at 3) that she night trained. My next day trained right before 3, but now at 5 still soaks her pull up almost every night. My next, day and night trained shortly after turning 2. So, my little Ellie has been wearing undies at night for quite some time now, while her big sister still wears pull ups. Go figure. They are all different!! - Woohoo for freezer meals, that will be nice. I don't think I will do much of that. I will likely just do a lot of "stick a roast in the slow cooker" type meals. I do that anyway. Nothing too complex around here for the most part. Although I do bake bread and muffins almost every night. Easy recipes though. EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING is pretty much made from scratch around here, so there is a LITTLE work involved. I may make a couple loafs of bread and some muffins for the freezer. We shall see. Honestly, cooking with a newborn around isn't that big a deal anymore. I either let the rest of the kiddos entertain the baby, or I strap her on in a carrier and keep on cooking. - I don't really hold onto much in the way of clothes. If the girl's clothes make it through a season, usually a sister can wear it the following year, and I hold onto it (if I really like it). Other then that, I give a lot away. I just don't really hold onto much of anything (and we don't have the space to anyway). I think I have around 40 outfits or so for the new baby, and I probably only paid around $25 for all of it. You gotta love thrift stores (especially for the itty bitty sizes - super cheap).
Sandra, sorry about the upset tummy last night and poor little bugger man...hope that clears up quickly. We've BTDT recently but both kiddos are actually pretty healthy ATM.
I slept pretty well once I was able to get in bed but I had some really not fun bouts of diarrhea last night. Thankfully it waited until after I got home from church. Sorry TMI! Made me think of Patience's post though...hopefully that doesn't mean impending labor.
I have not started washing anything yet. She will be staying with DH and I and our room is a disaster area right now. Hoping to make some progress on that this weekend so maybe the next I'll start getting her clothes out. I'm not even 34 weeks yet so still feels like time is crawling to me. I'm not in a big hurry but I guess I really should be pretty quickly. Especially considering I've never carried to 37 weeks before. I'm still of the mindset I'll make it that far though so we'll see.
I have been uncomfortable, sore belly and really exhausted all week. I'm so tired today! Dropping DS1 off at preschool this morning I was waddling in so slow just feeling really heavy and achy. How are you ladies feeling? Have any energy?
Woot! for dryness through the night! DS was big trouble to actually get potty trained, because everytime we had it going consistently we would move houses (and usually states) and that would throw him off big time and we would have to start over from scratch.
I am trying to pack up the house and it is going slooooow, I get maybe a box packed then am ready for a nap...
Sorry for all the runny noses! Yay for petty training, I am not looking forward to that tho it shouldn't be bad bc dd seems to hold her bladder for 6 hr stretches a lot since she was 10 months old.
New for me is I went shopping, got dds blog sister outfit and a few cute matching skirts and shirts for the girls as well as some individual summer clothes for both, I now have abt 8 NB summer outfits or so. Lol, not many at all. To I plan on borrowing my sisters clothes again .
So couldn't sleep well last night bc i felt like when u go 6 hrs not breast feeding. Just owie. Well this am boobs swollen and leaking now. Pooped 8 times in 24 hrs, last one was diareah and have been constipated till now happy to poop once a day, and my Back hurts off and on.... But otherwise I am just busy getting ready and cleaning cooking and doing laundry. Feels good, also need groceries today and s&h and I have a real date tonight! So hope no baby for at least a few days lol
Ugh, I would dread moving right now!!!! Good luck Mary!
Well, I got started early on the organizing and already have the 0-3 month stuff in the drawers, and the 3-6 month stuff in a tote ready to go. My boys are so big they only wear NB clothes for 1 week and 0-3 month stuff for about 6 weeks. My DS2 had his baby blessing at church when he was 5 weeks old and wore 3-6 month clothes already. So I need the 3-6 month stuff easily accessible!
Now moving on to the 6-12 and 12-18 stuff. After that I will be organized!
Lynn, I always feel ridiculous going to get DD from Kindergarten and get DS2 off his bus. I just hobble around like an uber fat person LOL. Not much energy these days.
