Yeah--I am both fascinated by and terrified of Australia I really, really want to see it but I'd be pretty scared to swim.
I bet Evan will do great. Adair is just awful to DH when I'm around, but when I'm actually gone she is great with him.
Ahh theres not too much to worry about. I have spent a lot of time at beaches including my Grandfather's which has no nets and is unpatrolled and never been stung. The only stings I have seen were actually a couple on my cousins where we were running through water pools as the tide went out. We also used to have to wear very sexy full length lycra suits as kids to stop stingers.

Oh yeah we have crazy spiders, ever heard the song, there was a redback on the toilet seat. Seriously though with all the dangerous snakes, spiders, and assorted other animals I am still alive so theres not too much to worry about Just don't play with the wildlife
My friend didn't have any BH at all. She just went into labor on her due date with no warning. Oh, by the way, they did that bottle feeding trial and she gained 8 ounces in 3 days. SO the supply is definitely not the problem--it's her suck. They've evaluated her palate, tongue, etc. and can't see any physical issues so they're trying to figure out how to proceed now. Exclusively pumping/bottlefeeding is a hard road, so I really hope they're able to find a better way! An SNS system has been suggested (by Erin and my SIL, who used to do some lactation consulting) so I passed that along...really hope they're out of the woods on this soon. The good news is that at least now they don't have to be so worried about her physically getting enough and growing anymore, and hopefully being well fed will help her moods, sleep, etc. Man...as if having a tender tiny isn't hard enough!
