Other People's Cute Kids

Remember how I said I was going to share good posts by other bloggers? Well, I'm going with a theme this time: Kids are cute.

Check out these bloggers cute kids:
Moxie's commenters tell some funny stories about kids and naming "private parts."

Burgh Baby gets her annual assessment, and I love everything about this post! (When I steal this idea, you all will know where I got it from.)

Here's a cute game played in the mothergoosemouse household.

Dutch tells how sweet Juniper isn't really into picking blueberries, but she is a ray of sunshine in the hospital.

Jezer's boy searching for the cat makes me think of how the Pumpkin will probably be doing the same before we know it.

So, just five this time. But five excellent ones. It's taking me entirely too long to go back and find the posts that I want to link to, and some I can't find, which is frustrating. I really need to just bookmark them when I read them.

BTW, did you know that PBS is showing Jane Austen movies on Sunday nights? I'm very excited and have already recorded last Sunday's Persuasion, and I'm looking forward to watching it and then reading the review by Moxie. Maybe I'll have time this weekend.

Awww . . . thanks for the shout out! Would you believe the idea of that post was born entirely from the need to use old photos because I went a week without taking any new ones? The only bad thing is that it made me all sad and misty-eyed because the little baby days are gone.

Now I'm off to read all the other posts you recommended. Thanks for doing all that leg work for me!

I like the Goal idea from Burgh Baby. Might have to steal that one too!

I've stolen a few ideas from you as well! Such as my name -- it's a French pseudnym, yours is Italian -- but I since my site has a slight French theme with the obscure reference to Cirque Du Soleil, I thought it would work! But I totally got the idea from you. Hope you don't mind!

Also, my Funny Quote of the Week is sort of an homage to your Question of the Week but got a jumpstart because of Tim Gunn being just too funny with his comments.

You've probably already checked these out but I also really like Design Mom and Gray Matter Matters. Gray Matter Matters had a HILARIOUS post on future books to be written by celebrities recently. Good stuff!

Baby Fidgets in Sleep (and While Awake)

Since I've started this blog, I've had quite a few visitors find me through a search for something like "baby fidgets in sleep" or "baby fidgets in bed" or simply "baby fidgets." This leads me to believe that there are others out there with fidgety babies who drive them crazy enough to search on the internet for some information about fidgeting babies. So I thought I'd do a whole post to discuss the fidgety nature of my child and how I deal with it.

Do you want to know when my child first started fidgeting? IN UTERO!! I'm not kidding. When I was pregnant, this baby moved a lot. She was very often kicking and pushing and hiccuping. OMG, the hiccups! I thought they would drive me nuts. Every. Single. Day. For. Months. Straight. Often more than once a day. I am not exaggerating--you can ask Londo or the many people I worked with, all of whom had to hear about it. I just thought it was part of being pregnant, and it probably is, but I've al…

Some Babies Just Fidget

I have mentioned before that we had a very fidgety baby. It's been a while sinced I talked about it. Although she is still pretty fidgety, at her currently toddler stage it seems more normal and has in many ways translated into bigger, general movements, like climbing.

But I still get a ton of search hits that have to do with baby fidgeting or flailing while sleeping or nursing. Some people stay around and read a bit, and I hope they get what they need from the posts I wrote specifically aboutthis topic hoping that others realize they are not alone. Most people don't stay at all, and I figure they are probably looking for medical reasons why babies fidget (like I would).

Then I got this comment, which does indeed show that people are looking for medical reason. Anonymous said that she wasn't sure if the Pumpkin's fidgets were as severe are her 3.5 month old. Well anonymous, I can't be positive since I haven't seen your child, but at some points they were as bad …

Fidgety Baby Growing Up

My daughter was a very fidgety baby. More fidgety than any other baby I knew through all my years of babysitting, being an aunt and having friends and family with babies. So fidgety that I wondered if something was wrong, if there was an underlying reason for her fidgetiness.

There really wasn’t anything wrong. As far as I can tell, she simply has a LOT of energy in her body. Her father is the same way. Londo is full of energy and has always been a fidgeter. And me? I can’t sit in one position for a long period of time. I don’t really fidget so much as I shift positions periodically, and I don’t think I ever simply sit normal, facing forward with both feet on the ground when I’m in a chair. In fact, sitting normal sounds like torture to me.

But three years ago, when the Pumpkin was a few months old and through her babyhood, I didn’t know why she was fidgeting so much. When I would nurse her, when we’d be rocking her to sleep, when we would try to hold her calmly, when we’d be lying in…
