DC Area Bloggers Dinner

The votes have been cast, and the winning date is August 30th. Here I was, hoping to get together with you guys soon, and you all pick the latest date possible in August.

Should I take it personally that you all don't want to jump on the nearest Metro to hang out with me? Lucky for you all, my skin is pretty thick. And lucky that August 30th is probably the best date for me too (and I didn't even vote)!

So, here are the details for our next get together:
Date: Saturday, August 30, 2008

Time: 6:00 PM

Place: Cafe Deluxe in downtown Bethesda

Reservations Under: Cara

Who's Invited: DC Area bloggers and blog readers and spouses, this time without kids
(Since the idea for these get togethers started at Ask Moxie when DC area commenters all wanted to get together, I am not limiting this get together to only bloggers. Since I'm a blogger and know other DC Area bloggers, I'm not limiting this to only Ask Moxie readers. I likes to be inclusive.)

What you need to do:
1. Respond in the comments that you are coming so I can get a head count.
2. Check back for any updates between now and August 30th.
3. Point out things I'm forgetting.
4. Show up for the get together!

I can't wait (although I apparently have to)!

I'll have to get back to you after this weekend to see if there's going to be a strike or not...and after that, it's just a matter of how long will it last, etc.

I'll have to get back to you after talking with DH AND figuring out where I will stand with my one project. I thought this project was eternally on hold, but OH NO, now they decide out of nowhere that this thing has to be launched September 1st (up until now they hadn't really decided on a date -- don't ask). GRRRR. Anywhoooooo ... I'll get back to ya!
Sweet. We're having our local blogger get blotto night tomorrow. Good luck with the dinner and thanks for the comment on my DadCentric post. See ya soon.

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…
