Woe With Me

Today, I'm feeling exhausted and inadequate. Also, extremely busy and stressed.

If anyone wants to attempt to cheer me up, I would appreciate it. Especially if they are quick attempts, as I am really busy with work.

it's Friday?
Um. babySaid now says fish 'ish', and 'ohh yeah' and even 'boyah' some times... and a couple of time 'beeyatch' oops :)

He's super cute and I will be working on a new update over the weekend, though that will be too late to cheer you up probably. um too late as in you will already be cheered up!

It seems to be a crazy time for all the mom's I know. Like the kids are catching the crazy halloween vibe some how. NOT SLEEPING, being just full of energy and us mom's BEAT.

Hang in there! I know for one you maybe exhausted but you are not inadequate.

Poor Caramama. If it makes you feel any better I'm at home with TWO vomity children today. Noah is fortunately starting to feel a bit better, but Zoe is at the beginning of it, and hubby is away on business. Yeah, I knew that would cheer you up.

I iphone has an application called "cha cha." "Cha cha" is a place where you can IM questions and a real live person will research it and answer you. It's popular and leads to the operators being overworked which leads to things like this.

Hey it made me chuckle.

Oh, I get these days, too- where it just seems that I can't keep up and am not doing enough in any aspect of my life.

But then... the work gets done. Pumpkin is her usual adorable self and does something to demonstrate that she is a super genius developing just fine. I find some time to spend with my poor neglected Hubby. And it all gets better.

Hang in there. You are doing a great job. Look back at your post yesterday, and how much you've done!

It's Friday... It's Halloween... In the 60's (not the temp you would prefer, but great for this time of year)... And you get to dress your little pumpkin up tonight for some Trick or Treating, in which you get to eat the candy!

awww...I hope you feel better. I hate when I get that way. At least it's your favorite holiday today! :) Cheer up, have a little Halloween candy and watch a favorite movie with Londo. I hope you're feeling back to yourself really really soon. *hugs*

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…
