Unfortunately, I'm still a pregnant lady (but I'm posting over here anyways). Like Krista, I couldn't get to the board at all over the weekend. I figured everybody was having the same problem, but it looks like other people still managed to post. Anyway, I just got back from my dr appt, and they are estimating that Mason is about 8 lbs right now! YIKES. He better come out soon. Looks like he'll be a 2002 baby, though.
This talk about avoiding spicy/strongly-flavored foods while breastfeeding is really scaring me. I've been planning on trying to eat my normal spicy diet, and see if maybe he'll be used to it from the start. Otherwise, what will I eat?
Shelley, that is so cute about Tru and his fist! And thats neat that he laughs so much - must be a very happy baby!
And Krista, poor Jared. It seems so unfair that baby's have to get sick. I hope your mom's surgery is uneventful.
Hi, Katie! Don't worry, this isn't a special clique - we are happy to hear from everybody! Look at me, I'm not even a new mom yet, but I post here.
I'm off to go take a ride in an old pick-up down a really bumpy road... (not really)
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
