DC Area Dinner This Saturday!

Yeowza! Apparently you all are sick of the Olympics. I should have realized. I got one sympathy answer, and that's it. I get it people. You are done with the Olympics. Michael Phelps has moved on to London, and you all are moving on too.

But for those of you in the DC area, how about moving on to Bethesda and coming out for an adult dinner and drinks? That's right get a babysitter and leave the kids at home! The majority of you voted for the 30th, so I hope you've had it marked on your calendar!

The details are here, so read them and then come back here and tell me if you are in (if you haven't already), so I can make reservations.

So far, this is who I have as coming:
-Justin and Colleen - Probably
-La Folle Maman - Maybe
-hedra and epeepunk - Yes
-zaimah (z) and husband - Yes

Okay, more people than that voted for this day. So where are you people? Who else wants to come?

Yeah, I thought about leaving a smart ass comment about my favorite part being the closing ceremonies, but judging but what I saw of it it's still going on. OK, you handed it over to London, they drove off, you can stop now.

I enjoyed some of the Olympic fever but it got old fast. How many volleyball games were there!? I think I really lost interest when one interviewer asked the forth leg of the men's swimming relay what it felt like to win a gold for Michael Phelps.

DH has agreed to watch Monkey, however, it's still up in the air about whether or not my client will be launching those sites by Sept. 1 -- yes, ridiculous I know. I'm hoping they'll not only postpone it until later but until MUCH later since they need to get their poop in a group on some things we need from them before we can proceed. Long story, I've already said too much! Anyway, it's still a maybe. I should know by Thurs.

I hope y'all have a trantastic time without me!

Okay, the stars have aligned ... it seems as though the client has agreed to push the launch until after the holiday. Of course, I still have 8 hours tomorrow to hold my breath that they don't change their mind! :)

What all of this means is, I'm coming!

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…
