Happy July 1!
Happy Baby month, Ash!!
Katie - glad Evan had fun at your friends house, sounds like a good time.
Amanda - try avocado and coconut oil (not together). Both have really good fats. One of the little boys I worked with was VERY underweight and his mom incorporated those into his diet daily (smoothies for a while) and he finally started gaining. He was allergic to dairy so she didn't include that, but since Natalie isn't it could also help. Happy Canada Day!
Virginia - how far from NYC are you? It's not really common for women to have children young here either unless they are religious. Glad you found some friends to hang out with. I don't have too many mom friends but just finding a few was so nice. I wanted to get a water sling for the shower but it turns out Lily really hates the shower so I'm glad I didn't. We don't have a pool so it wouldn't get any use.
Mary - Glad Sean had a good birthday! I want to do something low key like that for Lily's birthday.
Laura - sending lots of good thoughts to your mom. *hugs* to you too!
I'm forgetting a lot and I'm sorry - I'm expecting Lily to wake up from a nap any second, but she seems to be defying expectations. I kind of feel trapped waiting though - since her naps are usually short I didn't do anything I needed to (like shower) because I figured I would get interrupted, but she has been sleeping much longer than normal. I'm tempted to just take a quick shower.
No real plans for the weekend, but DH will have finished his projects so maybe we will do something local.
