DC Area Meet Up - Dinner in August

Let's try this again.

Who can get together for dinner and drinks in August? Vote for the dates you like the best in the poll on the left (you can select multiple options).

Every time I suggest a couple of dates, I get a ton of feedback for dates that I didn't suggest. So this time I'm offering every Friday and Saturday in August. Now, I might be out of town that first weekend, so I won't vote for it. But let's see what happens if I leave it in.

The plan is to meet around 6:00 at Cafe Deluxe in downtown Bethesda, right by the Metro. I'll make reservations under "Cara," but I will need to know what the date is and who is coming.

So vote in the box on the left and leave a comment telling me what you think! I like you people and want to get together again! Don't you want a fun night out without the kiddos?

I'm down for any weekend except the first two. Also, did you leave out the 15th and 16th on purpose?

I came over from Moxie, and I'd love to meet up with some other folks. I'll check back to see what the date is. Thanks for organizing.

Fridays are WAY too hard for us...but I'm game for Saturday the last night of Freedom (possibly)...I was wrong, the contract expires that night. But who cares if I show up Sunday morning a little hung-over? :D

Sharina - I did not leave out the 15th and 16th on purpose... or at least any purpose that I can think of! I can't edit the poll because there are already votes attached. Hmmm, I can add a new poll, though. Let me try to supplement the original.

Cafe Deluxe is great!

The only day I really can't go is August 9 because it is my b-day. But if that turns out to be the day, then hopefully you'll do it again and I'll come next time.

Looking forward to meeting you all,

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…
