Re: *May 2011 Mamas - November Chat*

Hey Mamas!! I can't believe our little ones are going to be 6 months old already!!! When people warned me they grow too fast, I had NO IDEA how true that rang!!

We are starting her on solids sometime this week. I went out and got a bunch of bananas and avocados to start her on. She can sit on her own for a good while and has been grabbing at everything, so we'll see how she likes it!

Libs has been keeping me on my toes at night. Sometimes she only wakes once or twice, sometimes she's up 5+ times (like last night, boo!). Since DH is gone most of the week, I keep her in bed with me after her first wake up to get as much sleep as possible. Sidecarring is what we will do with our next LOs!! Wish I would have from the getgo!!

I LOVE the pea costume!!! So adorable!!

Greenbean,

You are killing me with that pumpkin! So glad your DH could be home with you all this year! I cannot even imagine . . .
You will have to tell me how the banana and avocado go. We are on the verge of solids ourselves!

Greenebean - Oh wow I love the pictures, especially the pumpkin one - your family is so cute! Glad you were all able to be together for Halloween.

cherrycoke - Could you post the link to info about sidecarring the crib? I might want to do that. DD loved her crib at first and slept great but I have all but given up now and she has been sleeping with us because she either wakes when I put her down or will only sleep a short time in the crib now. That sounds like a great plan for your family though - yay!!!

Here is the link that I found and Kellymom posted on facebook, it's got pictures and everything

http://www.freewebs.com/sidecarcrib/

Greenbean - that pumpkin picture is amazing! Love it!

ETA: once we do side car, I'll probably post pictures on my blog so I can show that you can do it no matter how small your house is

Re: *May 2011 Mamas - November Chat*

What is everyone up to this weekend? We aren't doing much. I am working diligently at knitting DD some pants. It's really windy and damp and cool outside so I think we'll probably stay in most of the day at least. Not sure what tomorrow's supposed to be like. I really don't mind lazy days though.
