Uh, it's already Friday and we're just now starting this thread lol
I have reached the "hair falling out" phase of pp There is hair EVERYWHERE. I hate washing it.
Having 2 boys born during the same season is awesome in terms of reusing clothes, but since it's been so warm T has just been in onesies a lot and probably isn't even going to get to wear most of the 3 month long sleeve/long pant stuff. He's also growing SO fast. Slow down baby!

A had her allergy test Tue. The skin test was negative for beans and strawberry so that's good. We're just waiting on the blood test results. They actually were able to get blood from her! Actually as I was typing this the doctor called. Negative on everything they tested but she's still concerned about a possible gelatin allergy because there is gelatin in the MMR vaccine that A would be getting at her 1 year checkup. I'm also trying to find any other ingredients for the foods she broke out with to see if we missed anything.
Anyone else's babies crawl weird? A crawls with one leg straight out. I thought she'd stop doing it once she got the hang of crawling but she still does it. Anything to be worried about?
We got back from vacation last night. I'm trying to decide if I have energy to take the girls to a small pumpkin patch this afternoon. The weather is perfect and it's going to be getting colder and I would love to go on a pretty day.
estrellita, I wouldn't worry about it. As long as she gets from point A to point B. E never really crawled (he army crawled) and DH rolled until he walked. That's great about the allergy test. Did they not test her for the gelatin?
So. I was shopping at my favorite college store for stuff for the house and E and BB (baby brother), and a staff member came up to ask if I needed help. I said, no, just browsing. She then rubbed my belly and told me congratulations! I was like, "um I really don't like it when people rub my belly. You really shouldn't do that without asking." 😡

HoneySpider- sorry about the hair loss 🙁. I am 2 years out and still losing hair (even though my thyroid is supposedly back to normal too, so not likely that). So fristyand also surprising I still have hair.
bk1- hope you made it to the pumpkin patch! How was vacation?
L was up a lot last night (2 times screaming and for a little longer than normal). I almost went in but he stopped as I was walking down the hall). He seems ok, maybe a little more congested than normal. But, he fell asleep in the stroller on our way home from Trader Joe’s, which NEVER happens. I just kept walking laps around our neighborhood and let him sleep and he woke after 30 min or so. He’s napping again now too.
We walked to TJ and Party City. DH turns 40 in a couple weeks. He has said no surprise party/party but I think I will have our parents and his BFF family over when he gets home from work. Probably not the best as far as timing because it’s month end but he is leaving for Vegas on Sunday before for 3 days and I want to go out on a date Sat...so this seems like the easiest, especially with him being out of the house (decorating, having people over, making the cake, etc).
C had a blast at Donuts with Dad today at preschool! Glad he had that time with DH!

pooh8402 they did in the blood test but she wants to be extra sure and do a skin test, mostly just because of the vaccine thing. I went over the ingredients in the yogurt drops she reacted to and the side thing we had the other time she had a reaction (it was like a frozen rice side with lentils, beans, peppers, etc, we also had tacos and they tested for the spices I was pretty sure H used on the chicken) but I can't seem to find anything in common unless it has a different form or name. I'm just frustrated we still don't have an answer!

pooh8402 I got distracted while replying earlier and forgot to say wtf to that person touching your belly. I will never ever understand why people think they can say or do whatever they want when someone is pregnant. Seriously!
We had lightening and rain last night so sociis cancelled today 🙁. It’s not supposed to rain til later this morning so not sure what we will do today.
L was up screaming again last night...I went in and he wanted a hug so I held him for a couple minutes. His nose is congested and he was laughing at the sniffling nose...told him to go back to bed and he’s still sleeping now.

I am so freaking excited to be done pumping in less than 2 months. I miss just being able to sleep until whenever the kids get up. I miss just going to bed when I'm tired. I miss not having to constantly watch the clock and plan time into my day to be hooked up to this machine. I'm basically still going just because I've made it this far and would feel weird introducing formula (again, she hasn't had any since less than a month old) when we'll switch her to whole milk in like a month and a half. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! That said, I also can't believe I've made it this far. Totally crazy!

L was up again last night and coughing a little. It almost sounded like a fake cough though and he didn’t cough at all this morning and seems fine (rode his bike and tried to convince me to go to the park 1 mile away!). But, he woke up during nap coughing too so something is going on...now the wait and see if his asthma flares up....
C has been snotty and sneezing too but otherwise his normal self. I guess they are both fighting something, which isn’t unexpected since the weather is fluctuating.
We walked to Starbucks and did coffee and donuts this morning, rode bikes (the boys did), DH and I watched a show during nap, and just having an easy day! Might make dinner or see if DH wants to go out to eat somewhere.
Gave L a breathing treatment before bedtime last night because he had a lot of thick mucus coming from his nose (plus the cough while sleeping puts him in yellow on his asthma plan). He woke up at 9 coughing but I didn’t here him after that (DH said he heard him though...but it could have been C, who I was up with at 10...he’s also super congested).
It’s windy here today and we really need to go grocery shopping...not sure if I will just wait til tomorrow. Will mostly decide after I see how they are doing when they wake up.
