Re: May 2011 Mamas - May chat! Happy Birthday!

JUSTINE - Those pictures are adorable! The snuggling babies. Oh squish. All I can think though, after I get over how cute it is, is how DS would never sleep in a bed with anyone else. How do you get that to happen?? He's got to be in the crib, with the sound machine, lights off, perfect time, to even think of sleep happening.

Oh man, the potty. That kind of a thing hasn't even crossed my mind. At all. Am I supposed to be thinking about that??

Week is going downhill. DS is entering into his next Wonder Week I can tell. We had a glorious month of 12-hour nights and general good humor. But now it's all clinginess, waking up early and multiple times, and not wanting to eat or nurse. I just keep saying "This too shall pass!" Doesn't help that he has a horrible diaper rash with open welts. Poor bub.

DS's bday is May 21! And then a week later we leave on our cruise to Alaska! Can't wait! I'll have my parents and my brother and his girlfriend as free babysitting the whole time. I have so many plans for massages, cocktails and casino time!!!

Justine - side note. How do you get such good pictures? What kind of camera and settings do you use? I can't ever get the sharp foreground/blurry background look.
