For Halloween, Liam and I went with a bunch of other kids and parents to a nearby nursing home to visit with the residents, give them candy and wish them a happy Halloween. Not sure most people got our African/Caribbean theme, but I took off his socks and everyone loved up his toes (and hence not his hands and face!).


On a feeding note, I finally broke down and bought some liquid formula to add to rice cereal - and it works! He eats it. I know, I know, I hate formula, but it works and it means he's getting some iron, since I am so not being good about getting him his supplements. I guess my parenting philosophy so far is "whatever's easiest".

omg we LOOOVE it!!!!!!!!! omg omg omg. Hope you guys will be in Mentor oh say somewhere around Christmas!! If not, I guess I'll survive, but it won't be easy!

Wait, what happened to Yoda? Please!?! And I love! the video. I've played it for everyone.

And that was the one time I would pump, for Nathan's rice cereal. I think that was part of the reason I waited until the rest of you were older and I could dispense with that before feeding you solid food. It was a bit of a pain.

Ma, the formula lasted two days. Now he, literally, GAGS on it. GAGS. So much for that. Geesh. Whatever. So we're back to: here, chew on a carrot. Or not.

Maybe you could mix that yuckyterriblewhywouldanyonewanttoeatit rice cereal with fruit juice? Or not. Try a cooked carrot. It's softer. He might actually get some.

Mara, don't feel bad about giving him formula. I couldn't breastfeed Adib as long as I did Bella, but honestly, I'm so pleased that he is not so attached to me phisically as Bella, and he sleeps really well in his crib with a pacifier. I believe that children benefit a lot from breast milk but I also believe that it's important to quit at the right time before they start using Mom as a paci and often end up sleeping by her side instead of baby crib. I don't know which theory you feel is right for you and Liam, but do whatever you motherly instinct tells you and besides, formulas nowadays are pretty good. You can try lactose-free or soy based if you think he has problems with digesting a regular one. He is so adorable, good job guys!

Especially helpful info here. BTW, I believe I read a very similar article on an additional blog today, truly i'm pretty sure. I 'll check it out and let you know, maybe they copied your content, who knows.

I have to assert, is really a pretty great post. I don't concur with everything you posted about, but on a whole, the idea rings true. As an aside. I'm a single mother personally and i'm finding it an enormous burden at this time attempting to care for 3 children. It's been like this for a number of years now. Regardless of what everyone keeps on saying in regards to the economic, and all of the federal government financial aid programs offered, absolutely nothing at all ever is. Oh well, the life of the single mother for you! Regardless, I have been on your website a few times and i am a bit of a silent reader, so thought I'd toss out a comment. Look forward for your new article! Thx.

Oksana Grigorieva is attempting hard to prove DV because if she doesn't, she can be brought up on charges for illegally creating the "tapes" of Mel.

F*ckin’ tremendous things here. I am very glad to see your post. Thanks a lot and i am looking forward to contact you. Will you kindly drop me a mail?

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

Thank you for sharing excellent informations. Your web-site is very cool. I'm impressed by the details that you have on this web site. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject. Bookmarked this website page, will come back for extra articles. You, my pal, ROCK! I found just the info I already searched everywhere and simply couldn't come across. What an ideal website.

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I thGreat ˇV I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related info ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

I have been absent for a while, but now I remember why I used to love this website. Thanks , Iˇ¦ll try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your site?

Iˇ¦ve recently started a site, the information you offer on this web site has helped me tremendously. Thanks for all of your time & work.

Thank you, I've just been searching for info about this topic for ages and yours is the greatest I've came upon till now. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you sure concerning the supply?
