Natural Birth @ 02:44 pm

talisaar:
HI girls,

There's a really interesting article on Natural Birth Positions for anyone who wants to know more about it.  They offer advice on what a woman can do to make the birth process less painful and quicker.  All the best to new mommies and mommies to be!

Stroller Advice: Duostrollers... @ 08:39 pm

alicroc:
Warning: Will be Xposted as many places as posssible

So I desparately need advice on a good Duostroller.  I will have a 14 month old and a new born as of June.  

I'm thinking of the Graco DuoStroller Family Tree...but I've read mixed reviews.

What do other moms with twins or close aged babies recommend?

Motherhood, @ 03:13 am

knightgoddess:
On april 24th my only daughter will be 3 years old.

Tonight I took a moment to watch her quite absurdedly. Absurdedly I say because I awoken her from her independant sleep.

I watched her eyebrows. They appear like mine. I watched her beautiful eyelids, and lips..... and for a moment...I sat



And I stared




and I realised...




I created that,



(I look around my messy office, destroyed by the "monkey butt" that is my two year old.) And I realised, that independant little beautiful angel of everything, of the world that has no description it is of such beauty is mine.

That beauty... THAT BEAUTY was created within my womb.....


yes .. this tummy that I look at in a mirror and cringe at more often than not. I say "This little waist beat Beth Kasmarik's! (The most beautiful girl's in schools.") For once, I stop and say, this beautiful waiste line.... created those eyebrows.... the eyebrows of the most beautiful girl in the world.




OMG to be a parent. OMG the beauty it intells.


Jasmine Amiage May is the most beautiful girl in the world.

She is mine.


She is my past.....as gruesome as it may be.


My present The beauty it beholds...


and my future.....the trials, learned as they will be another lesson to the truth.


She is my beauty!!


She is my beauty.

Hi all,

I've recently joined this community and wanted to tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a first time mom. Gave birth to Nicholas in October. Being home on maternity leave with him for 2 and 1/2 months was wonderful but it was back to reality in early January when I came back to work full-time. I work for a real estate investment company in Boston, MA. My husband, Chris, is home with Nicholas during the day and works with his dad on the night shift delivering baked goods to various places in the New England area. It's been quite an adjustment but we're both in love with our little boy and wouldn't change a thing.

Well, that's just a little bit about me. I'm looking forward to making some new friends!

Thanks!
~E

Colic @ 06:41 pm

zombigirl:
I had a friend call me today, at wit's end with her colicky hungry baby.  She's not slept in days and she thinks the baby's not getting enough formula (She's five weeks old)  What advice can I give her? Not to brag, but my newborn sleeps and feeds quite well, so far.
