October Randoms

To pick up from Sept comments...

The hitting, pinching, grabbing game was strong this weekend.  When I say "ouch", "that isn't nice", "no", or grab her arm firmly she just laughs.  The more stern I am the more she laughs!  EEK!  My hubs was like umm, are we doing the terrible 2s early??

On another note...got a BFP on Friday!

  • @kmurdock925 Yay congrats! We haven’t had too much in the way of tantrums but “no” is still not holding much weight with P and he likes to ignore me a lot. He’s started to say ‘no no’ lately though so maybe he’ll start to pay more attention? Maybe? I hope so, he is such a mischief that I need him to understand no ASAP.

  • Thanks guys :D the June '18 board is already super overwhelming.  Doubt I'll be joining anytime soon.

    Fortunately S hasn't started saying "no" yet (or shaking her head no) but she says "yes", "uh-huh", and nods a lot.  I wasn't expecting scolding to be "funny"...most things I haven't been surprised by (maybe need help figuring out how to handle)...but this one got me, haha.
  • Congrats @kmurdock925 I so have baby fever, but will wait until early next year to start trying again...

    i wish AJ would start talking. He clearly understands most of what I say to him. But he just refuses to actually use any words. Despite the fact that sometimes he'll SAY words like "ook" instead of book and I'll never hear them again. He won't even say mama or Dada in reference to me or DH. Just randomly

  • @kmurdock925 Congrats!

    We’ve always said that we wanted two kids, even when we were just dating. We just happened to get them both at once. I’ve been told numerous times “just wait until you hold a newborn again, you’ll want more”. I held a newborn a few weeks ago... and nope. Definitely done having kids. She was so sweet, but I was ready to hand her back!

    Thanks everyone!  Yup, as soon as I got the positive I immediately remembered how hard having a newborn is...then thinking about doing it with an almost 2 year old...eek!  Definitely not the first and won't be the last to do it, though, lol.

  • Congrats @kmurdock925

    We want more kids and have talked about when to start trying again I'm just honestly afraid of the newborn stage. I get sad as S gets older but I feel like we're finally in a smooth rhythm where we know what she needs and she's able to communicate more. Maybe it's because we had such a rough start with trying to breastfeed that I don't feel like I liked the newborn stage as much as I should have. I'm sure Baby #2 will be easier I just don't want to start over...does that even make sense? lol

    Quick question/vent: Does anyone struggle with uncooperative and jealous grandparents? I swear they're driving me nuts! My parents get jealous they don't see S as much as DH's parents or if they do see her it's not on their own someone else is always there (my Dad's words). My dad called to chew me out a few weeks ago because my mom was upset she hadn't seen S. Fast forward: This weekend is my 5th wedding anniversary but I thought I'd be nice and offer to come see them, maybe take S to the apple orchard. My Dad is currently helping a farmer so his response "If it rains I can go"...pretty sure he didn't even hear what I had to say or hear what he said. If it rains we're taking a 1 year old to the apple orchard?! Don't think so! So I text to say we made different plans since it sounds like they're busy anyway and my mom responds with "but it's supposed to rain"...ugh. So they want to see S...it just has to be on their terms apparently. I give up.

    Haha right there with you, I’m halfway through this pregnancy and I alternate between excitement and panic thinking of the newborn stage with a toddler. 

    @FTM53 Does seem to understand words when you say them? I feel like P goes through phases of not saying words for awhile but responding to the words I say enough to where I know what he is picking up, and then he’ll come out with several words at once. Which I think is what I heard to expect in this 15-18mo stage. So maybe AJ’s picking them up but just not quite ready to try to say them yet? It sounds like it varies quite a bit from kid to kid though, so I wouldn’t worry. It is hard when they get frustrated though!

  • We "pulled the goalie" as my husband says about 5 months ago but no luck. Not to mention my cycles have now gone to 45+ days so I'm sure we're going to have an even harder time getting pregnant. 

    @HoneyBear40 my In-laws are like that. We're always there with her when we visit. They've complained but DH tells them he doesnt see her most of the week so its his time to spend with her too. We're just ignoring them now and hope it goes away.

  • @kmurdock925 congrats! So exciting!

    We’re in the same boat with talking—or rather not talking. He definitely understands most of what I say/commands, and I think he’s randomly said a few words (dog, book, tractor), but then I won’t hear them again. It’s like he doesn’t care to try to repeat anything because he’ll laugh and run away, but babbles his own words a lot. I’ve even been trying sign language for awhile and he won’t do that either (even the ones that are consistent and frequent, like “milk”—he just pokes my boobs instead haha). I kind of think he might just be a bit stubborn

  • @LDSJM123 Great idea!! She currently uses our grown up ones but she can be very scary with it! She can eat with a fork great (unless dinner is super delicious then she'll have no patience and dig in with her hands.) Ordering them now and theres enough to leave a set in my bag and at her godparents house.

  • Great idea!! We use the munchkin plastic ones, but mostly he just pushes stuff around his tray with them
  • First after-baby period question.  Tmi warning.


       Ummmm...is it supposed to be really heavy?!?!?!?!!!!!!  What was your experience?
  • @austinjl I feel like I remember the second one was really heavy, the first one I can’t remember but my first few cycles were all weird and long which annoyed me. I can’t say how long it takes to even out either because I only had 3 before getting pregnant again. Definitely didn’t enjoy them though, ughhh

  • Thanks @winnie1122.  Turns out I survived the worst of it (I think)!  Periods still suck.
  • OXO has some great kiddo utensils...metal prongs/spoon part but big plastic handle- Amazon!
  • @ldsjm123 - Have you taken the train ride at Cuyahoga Natnl Park??  We are going on the 22nd!

  • @ldsjm123 - Have you taken the train ride at Cuyahoga Natnl Park??  We are going on the 22nd!
    No train, but that's where we hike all the time. It's GORGEOUS! Shoot me a message on IG :) 
  • @ldsjm123 yay!  I'll let you know how the train ride is.  I'm hoping to get some decent "fall" pics while we're up there!  How is the foliage looking so far?  Down here it seems like the leaves are just falling off and skipping the good color phase...whomp whomp
  • I'm pretty sure that's where we're at with S. She'll shake her head no and say no but then wants what you have ... kind of confusing at times! :)

    Does anyone have trouble with daycare and sending their kids home? I swear they kick S out of daycare at least once a month. Barely walked in the door this morning and they have 2 cases of hand/foot/mouth disease so they took one look at S and a spot under her chin and sent her home. I was so mad I was shaking. It's been 2 hours now and I still can't concentrate at work.

  • Friends who cloth diaper, any of your kids trying to rip their diaper off constantly? It seems like it bothers her. She gets really upset and pulls on it everyday. She doesn’t care about disposables. 
    austinjl
  • @HoneyBear40 AJ does that with the sign for "alldone". I get it for everything from food, to books, to being in the car seat. 

    As far as daycare goes, nope. Haven't had that issue. AJ has only ever been sent home once and it was for the stomach flu. But my pediatrician said that we are at one of the healthiest daycares she's ever seen and that she will be sending her kids there once she has one. 

    However, a friend of mine at a different daycare said her son gets sent home regularly and is beyond annoyed about it. He apparently has gotten hand/foot/mouth disease there twice, the stomach flu 3x and something else -- all since August.

  • @shaylalr J pulls at it but she isn't upset. She has figured out it has buttons and I think she's curious to see them more than anything. Could it be the absorbancy? Like she feels the wetness more than a disposable? 
  • @HoneyBear40 yes about daycare! It’s so frustrating! All of the kids in the class got hfm except F (he had missed Friday) so we kept him home Monday since the kids hadn’t been picked up yet. Then we called Tuesday and they said they couldn’t take him because all the other kids were out and they didn’t have a teacher for just him (annoying). Then we sent him Wednesday and they said his diaper rash was possibly hfm, so I had to pick him up then as well. After that I just kept him home the rest of the week because I was so mad and also freaked out about the sickness at the same time. He still has those spots in his diaper over 2 weeks later and they haven’t said anything about it since—so obviously we were in the clear. I totally get the safety aspect, but I t’s frustrating when daycare is SO expensive and they make us feel like an inconvenience (he only goes about 25 hours a week anyway). Ok done venting haha
  • Ok ladies, I would love some help! Anyone interested in reviewing my blog for me? Id love some honest feedback and critiques. Layout, pictures, recipes, etc. I don't plan on making a public announcement until December, but I'd love to know if the direction I'm going is good. Or enjoyable for my audience.

  • @FTM53 Ugh—so sorry you’re going through that! Sending good vibes your way!
    @LDSJM123 I’m so excited to read your blog!
    LDSJM123austinjlFTM53
  • I can't even begin to imagine having all those issues, im so sorry! We all have had varying degrees of what you've experienced, so we all get it. Hugs! 

    Also, thank you for the blog help! Feel free to let me know here, in a private message, or via IG message.

  • Ugh....that sounds awful.  I can relate on the peeing while sneezing/coughing and sex hurting for a long time.  I was so expecting to be back to "normal" after my 6 week checkup.  Hahahaha.  That cyst issue sounds like zero fun.   :(. Good luck.
