May Meet Up This Saturday

We are meeting at the At Play Cafe in the morning of Saturday, May 23. I am planning to get there between 9:30 (when it opens) and 10:00. We'll stay as long as people are able. Although my daughter does not usually nap on weekends, we like to still pretend there is a chance so we will probably try to leave around 1:00 or so.

I think I'll be pretty easy to find. I'll be the 5'2", 9-month pregnant woman with a 6'4" husband and adorable toddler. I'll probably be wearing a purple dress and looking a lot like Barney or Grimace. Maybe I'll wear my black dress instead. I make no promises.

A couple things to note:
- Since this is an indoor location, there is no need for a backup rainy day plan. We'll just call this the final plan.
- There is an admission fee for the play area $8 for the first child, $6 for each additional sibling, but babies under 8 months are free.
- Socks are required for all children and adults in the play area, so even if you are wearing flip flops or sandals, bring some socks!
- There is a cafe with breakfast and lunch items which sound pretty good.
- If your child is exhibiting flu-like symptoms, they may be asked to leave the play area, especially considering the swine-flu hubbub. Hopefully, if you child has those symptoms, you'd be staying home anyway so as not to get the other kids sick. Personally, I don't think I could handle my toddler or myself being sick at this stage of my pregnancy! :-)

Here is the list of people I believe will be attending:
- Cara, Londo plus 1.5
- Colleen, maybe Justin plus 2
- Stacy plus 1
- Trannyhead, Mr. Trannyhead plus 1.5
- Dana, My Goofy Daddy plus 1.5
- Kate, maybe hubby plus 1
- Sonia plus 1

So that's 10-12 adults, 8 kids running around and 3 babies in bellies. Whew! We are going to be quite a crew. This is going to be fun!

If anyone else wants to come, just let me know!

I think you are more like 1.9 at this point.

We had a blast as well! It was fun to see "old" friends and meet some new ones. :)

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…
