We had our 4th yoga class today out of 6. I really wanted to skip it because I am soooo tired but I was afraid J would be sad and bored bummin' around all day. But he's gotten himself into a little routine so when the clock strikes noon, he turns into a sleepy pumpkin. Since the yoga class is from 11:30 - 12:30, the 2nd half of the class isn't quite as fun. But it sure does make a nice relaxing car ride home while he's conked out in the back. There were only 3 of us there today and at one point all 3 of us were nursing so we just chatted. They all said J grew so much since last week’s class.

There was a new girl there today, hair and nails all done (roll eyes). She had her little 5 week old. She was telling us how quick and easy her delivery was (roll eyes). Someone said how alert her baby was and she said "she was this way since the moment she was born (roll eyes). She said how she's been rolling over since she was two weeks old (roll eyes). And "her neck is so strong for her age" (roll eyes). OK, I'm not that mean, it's cute when moms are so proud and her baby was very precious. We all know I'm not one to hold back on the "isn't my boy perfect!" talk. I did however say "well she's just a miracle baby isn't she?" jokingly of course. I bet she sleeps through the night and poops flowers too, right?

J's allergist called today making his routine patient checkups. I guess he's heard me cursing his name. I should be happy he called, he doesn't have to do that and most doctors don't. He could just assume I'd call if I had concerns. Unfortunately I missed his call (because he called at the ass-crack of dawn!) So I'm now waiting for him to return my call. I hope this seething anger I have dies down before he calls back. I'd like to have a nice, calm, rational conversation, politely demanding some explanations for the lack of info provided at our appointment.

And what's up with J's hair! I thought we were passed the infant-pattern baldness. His hair is now thinning on the top, just when the back and sides were starting to grow in nicely. And actually it's receding around the sides too this normal? Nobody warned me about this. Maybe because if they tried I wouldn't listen.

1) we were told that when Holden could hold up his head, and roll over at 3 weeks that he needed physical therapy because " strong babies" aren't strong.. their muscles are confused, and had to be watched for 2 years for CP. SO tell your perfect classmate that her kid ain't the shit... and maybe you could give her the nod towards her area Infants and toddler's representative. :P
2) I bought Millicent the Halloween bones leg warmers for her halloween digs. SO freakin' cute.
3) Holden had some major hairline issues ( see NICU kept shaving spots out of his head to insert IVs) .. and now people think he's a girl because of his golden locks. DOn't sweat the hair.. it'll rock out soon enough.. adn then you'll miss his baby head. Don't blink girl.. the next thing you know he'll be 4 and telling you what he's gonna wear. :)

oh i would have had to leave the room. or else farted nonchantly. seriously, i can't tolerate too much baby bragging. or any kind of bragging, really. if that makes me a hag then so be it.

emma went thru a similar hair loss thing in the back that freaked me out but i am happy to say it is all normal 4 months later. well, mostly normal. prolly no one told you about this because they wanted it to be a happy surprise for you. like everything else.


and those leg warmers rock out!!

Yeah, the bragging can get on your nerves--and believe me it's just beginning...Some mommies need to feel that their baby is the best at everything. I've been thru it myself. Even the other day, 2 of my friends (whose daughters are about 7 weeks older than mine) were discussing everything their daughters could do--(Is J singing her ABC's yet? K is and she can sing them all and count to 10, etc...) They didn't include me in the convo--I guess because AJ is younger and I'm sure they thought that there is no possible way SHE could know all of this stuff...(She does, btw) SO I just kept my mouth shut and rolled my eyes!

I read your blog quite often and love seeing new pictures of J, he is so cute. I've not posted before but thought I would.

I love the leg warmers and will have to get some for my daughter. Too cute! Yummy, as my husband would say when he is making fun. I think I remember that you did J's room in robots so I thought I would show you this , thought of you when I saw it.

That hair thing happened to both of my sons too- I know, so disheartening. Just when you think they're gonna be cute again. Don't worry though, the acne doesn't ( or shouldn't come back again.)
