I'm sorry about your wrists. Hopefully the hand specialist will be able to help. There is light at the end of the tunnel though, after you wean some of these issues will hopefully go away. Its kind of like that toward the end of pregnancy... things may be tough but you only have a little while longer and then (hopefully) all the symptoms will subside. The things we go through for our little ones! Its all worth it though

Jackson is such a cutie. I love sleeping pictures I can't believe he is filling out the 12 month sleepers, he looks so long! Your little man has some long legs

I had lots of luck with it when DH and I started DTD after Jordan. If you're interested I have a friend who is a consultant and can see if she has any sample packs so you could try it to see if it works instead of buying a whole bottle.
I was just telling DH that I'm thinking about using the little bit of PreSeed that I have left from our TTC days. I think we'll try it this weekend and see if it helps (and doesn't sting). If your friend does have a sample of the Just Like Me, I'd love one. If it works without stinging, I'm totally on board with buying the biggest bottle she's got!

I hope the preseed and Just Like Me help! I can't believe it's time for Jackson to be in 12 month things. My friend was showing me her daughter's 12m sleepers and since some of them are snug-fitting since they are not flame resistant they look smaller. Maybe that's why he fits in it better than you thought he would? I hope the specialist helps your hand.

That's exactly why. I have some that are snug-fit and some that aren't. Even the snug fit, though, looked like they'd be too big. Nope. Fit like a glove. I wish I would have transitioned him sooner.

It is sad that he's already in 12-month stuff though.

I can't believe our babies are getting so big!

I nf n gv ll, ,k nhsadz

Well, that's what Sean had to say on the topic! He's in my arms while I'm on the laptop! (so hard to type since he's so curious!!)


I don't get the snug-fit thing. People are ridiculous not supervising their children and keeping candles and the like out of reach. The snug fit things look so uncomfortable to me since I like loose-fitting clothes for sleeping.

I thought the snug-fit was so weird too. I had the conversation with my husband, like, "In what situation would a baby be around fire?

They actually seem pretty comfy on him. I mean, he doesn't seem to mind them. While they're snug, they have a lot of stretchiness to them. They're also fairly thin, which I like. He gets warm when he sleeps and will kick off the blanket completely. So I want him to be covered but not in something that is super-hot. So I think these are actually a good compromise.

KickeePants jammies would be a great option for you...well for Jack! They are made of organic bamboo and are very thin but very stretchy. Bax gets way too hot in most things so a good chunk of his wardrobe and jams are bamboo.

I had an appointment with my doctor today to finally discuss my De Quervain's tenosynovitis (a.k.a. mommy thumb, a.k.a. tendonitis in my wrist/thumb). I can't remember what I've posted here, but it started in my right wrist probably around 2 1/2 or 3 months postpartum. I didn't think much of it until someone mentioned the condition to me. Then I looked it up and found that I had all the symptoms. New mothers often get a touch of it. While it hurt, it was manageable. So I just tried to pick up Jackson differently and not do the things that agitated it.

I think I overcompensated, though, because I started getting the same pain in my left wrist about five or six weeks ago. And, sadly, it is WAY worse than the right wrist. I wake up several times every night in pain because I move it a wrong way. It gets so stiff at night so the slightest movement really hurts. It makes nighttime feedings incredibly difficult. It's one of the reasons that Jackson ends up in bed with me after his first wake-up in his crib. I just can't lift him at night. It's much easier to adjust him in the bed to nurse him. When I wake up in the morning, it is so swollen/stiff that I can't straighten my fingers or close my hand without pain shooting up my entire forearm. This morning, I couldn't even put my PJ top or bottoms on. If I give it five minutes and slowly start moving it, it loosens up enough to get going.

It's manageable during the day, but it constantly hurts. Even gently running my finger across the inside of my wrist on either arm hurts. There are several everyday things I just can't do because it hurts too much.

So I finally saw my doctor this morning. She gave me a better splint and suggested naproxen twice daily. I told her that I won't take it as long as I'm breastfeeding. She totally understood and said that my only other option (if I want it to get better) is a corticosteroid shot. She referred me to a hand specialist, so I'll call tomorrow to make that appointment. She also said that, oddly, breastfeeding moms with the condition often see it go away after they wean.
I'm just now catching up on your blog - I was so far behind! I think I told you that this was called Mother's Thumb and that I had been suffering from it from very early on.

Mine is still awful - I can relate to EVERYTHING you are saying. I have been wearing splints to bed on both wrists since the beginning and OMG - it's just awful. I don't think I am ready to get the shot yet though - but please, if you get it, let me know about it?!?! I was almost going to get it for my carpal tunnel syndrome that I had while pregnant!

8 months & 27 days old

I know I do this every month, but how is my child almost nine months old!

Things are going really well, just very busy here at work. I have three big deadlines at the end of June, not to mention all the small stuff that comes up. Sometimes I really wish that my job wasn't driven by inconsistent and unpredictable deadlines.

DH and I celebrated our seven-year anniversary on Saturday. We were going to catch a movie before going to dinner, but the theater was so busy. The movie we were going to watch was sold out, and the other one had a longer running time than we'd anticipated. Since I had to make it back home to pump before we headed out to dinner, we had to skip the movie. We did walk around the mall (it's outdoor) and grabbed some frozen yogurt. Then dinner later was fabulous. It felt so weird to be together and away from Jack. When we got home, SIL was putting Jack down for the night. His slumber didn't last long. I guess he's just used to mommy being the one to put him to sleep at night.

I'm moving in the direction of night-weaning. When Jack wakes up during the night, he always wants to nurse. However, I think the majority of those nursing sessions are just out of habit/comfort and not because he's actually hungry. Sometimes, he will nurse feverishly (like recently with his growth spurt), but he usually just nurses for a few minutes and then falls back asleep. His night nursing is precisely why we've ended up co-sleeping for so long. It's just so much easier for me to nurse him in my bed, knowing that I have to be up early for work, and especially with my wrists hurting so much and not being able to pick him up during the night.

So, starting Friday night, I'm going to try not nursing him overnight. We'll give him a bottle of breast milk if he is actually hungry. And when I say, "we," I mean DH probably will. I don't want to confuse and agitate Jack, so it's probably best if DH feeds him. Otherwise, though, I'm going to try not to nurse him. I'm not going to promise that I'll stick to my guns, but I'm definitely going to try. He's exclusively napping in his crib now, and he goes down in it to start the night. If I could get him to just wake up once or twice during the night and be able to soothe him without my breast, we would be on our way to somewhat normal sleep for me.

Speaking of weaning, I am planning to wean Jack after a year. As much as I love our nursing bond and would not trade it for the world, I'm looking forward to no longer pumping four times per day, no longer working my schedule around pumping (including if I need to be away from Jack for longer than a few hours), no longer stressing about producing enough milk, and no longer suffering from ailments that are a result of my hormones being out of whack.

Don't get me wrong, either, I would make the same decision to EBF for a year with a second child as well, but I'm glad that I'm just three months away from weaning. Perhaps if I didn't have so much trouble with my hormones (taking FOREVER to heal after delivery, still painful sex and stinging, and tendonitis), I wouldn't be looking forward to weaning. Nonetheless, this has been my experience, so I'm ready for my body to return to closer to normal.

All that said, though, emotionally I'm not sure how I'll be able to wean. I cherish that bond, especially that last nursing session of the day. I'm sure there will be lots of tears when Jack weans. Heck, there are going to be lots of tears when (or should I say if) I night-wean him.

I had my consult with the hand specialist this morning. He confirmed the De Quervain's tenosynovitis. He saw in my file that my problem started after having a baby. He said that in new mothers, it's not the repetition of picking up a baby that causes the problem; rather, the hormone imbalance (particularly in breastfeeding mothers) causes the problem, and handling a baby just aggravates it. So he said that no matter how I would have carried or lifted Jack, I would have gotten this syndrome. He did say, though, that in almost all cases of new mothers with the condition, it goes away completely after they wean and the hormones regulate.

He said that a corticosteroid shot would be the next course of treatment, if I wasn't game to taking naproxen twice daily indefinitely. He did feel compelled to tell me, though, that the research on whether the steroid passes from mother to baby and could have any negative effects on the baby is not thorough. He said it's common practice to administer the shots to breastfeeding moms, just that the research isn't conclusive. While the steroid shot is meant to impact just the area where it's injected, some of it does enter the bloodstream and is passed along to the baby.

After that discussion, I decided to hold off for now. With just three months until I wean, I think I can deal with the pain. I know my hormones won't get completely back to normal right away, but at least there is an end in sight. Since the splint does help with the pain to a degree, I'll keep wearing it daily. If the pain gets worse, he said that we could use braces instead. And, of course, he's willing to do the shot if I want it. So I'm playing it by ear. I figured that if I can get to 8cm and into transition contractions before getting an epidural, I can handle moderate pain in my wrist for a few more months. If not, I know I have options.

Jack still isn't crawling yet! I swear it's been four months of me thinking he was on the verge of crawling. He was in the army crawling stance so long ago, moving his little knees one in front of the other and sticking his butt in the air before he ever started daycare. I know that his illness and weight loss while he was there were a setback, but I really thought he'd be doing it by now. It's a milestone that the average baby achieves anywhere between 7 and 10 months, so I'm not stressed about it. It's just odd, considering how active he's been.

He really is so much closer now, with actually moving a knee forward and lunging. And he rolls or scoots or pulls everywhere now and has for quite some time. Perhaps that's the thing. He can get to what he wants without crawling, so he's just not interested. Now, he's pulling himself up everywhere, not always into full-on standing but trying and sometimes succeeding. And once he is up, he stays that way for a very long time. He seriously wants to skip crawling and go to walking. I do believe he will crawl first, though, as he's just not steady on his feet yet.

He also high-fives now, which is pretty darn cute. And I think he's working on a couple more teeth, as he's been hitting his mouth/jaw and drooling a lot, things he did before the first two popped through. Still lots of babbling. And he's eating more solids now, but still wanting plenty of milk as well. He gets so excited when it's meal time.

And a couple of pics from the weekend.

I feel like I could have written this... this is exactly how I feel (minus the hormones thing... I really hope they ease up for you soon, maybe even when/if you do night wean!)
As much as I love nursing, I just am so sick of having to pump. Just the added stress alone is agonizing. The only reason I can pump enough daily now is because Jordan sleeps through the night (or only wakes once to eat). I think when I am able to just knock out pumping at work and at home, then I may still breastfeed Jordan at night to sleep for a while (if the demand during the day doesn't kill my whole supply anyway). I don't know. The whole "stopping" thing gives me anxiety, but I REALLY hate pumping!

Other than that, great update! I am glad you got confirmation about your wrist, but still sorry you have to deal with it At least you have options though if you choose to go with them.
LOVE the pics of Jack. Jordan has that same "Daddy's Best Friend" outfit

I feel you on the looking forward to weaning. I feel bad even thinking about that and its 8 months away for me! Breastfeeding is tough and ties you down for that first year. I, like you, wouldnt do it another way, but its still tough. You have done such a great job and you should be so proud that you stuck through it, even during the more stressful times.

Are you going to get the shot once you wean or just wait for your hormones to level out and see how you feel? I hope your wrists get back to normal in a few months.

Jack is such a cutie! Love his little teeth

I hope night weaning goes well for you. I think if I was in the same situation as you ladies I'd be feeling the same way about weaning. In my case I'd been planning to wean at 1 but am now considering going longer. Pumping is a pain, both figuratively and literally, so I can understand not wanting to do it too long! I hope that even the night weaning helps your hormones enough that you get some relief with your wrists. If not, it is great you have an end in sight!

9 months & 6 days old

I just find it more and more difficult to find the time to post here. Sadly, it looks like all of us with LOs are having a harder time posting now.

Jack's 9-month benchmark came and went last week. And then I was really busy over Mother's Day weekend. Work has also been insanely busy and will be for at least a couple more months to come. Not that I'm not generally pretty busy, but it's CRAZY here until the end of June. I'm excited to go back and see family 6/19-24, but it's right before a couple of big deadlines, which means I'm going to need to finish those projects before I leave. And that basically means I have a month to write three huge proposals, not to mention a ton of other smaller projects and my everyday work. But I'm posting here anyway because I needed a break from what I was doing.

Mother's Day was awesome. Jack woke up at 5am. He's had 7-8 nights of sleep regression. He'll be okay until around 2am, but then he tosses and turns. I found out yesterday the cause (more on that in a bit), but it's been rough. When he wakes up at 5am, he's wide awake, since he's been tossing and turning for at least a couple of hours before that. So William took him and told me to go back to sleep. I did, but I was wide awake myself at 6:30. When I woke up, I noticed a card on the dresser. I opened it (it was very sweet with little pics and notes throughout, something that William has done since we first started dating), and I found a certificate for a spa day inside.

I then opened the Mother's Day hugs from the women in my PR. We were able to nominate moms in six different categories and then write special notes for everyone. Then one of our hosts compiled everything. The "winners" of the six special hugs received an actual card in the mail (while the other ladies received an e-card). I was voted #1 hardworking mommy. It was so lovely to read the thoughtful comments from the women in my PR.

I then moseyed downstairs, and DH told me to get ready. We went to breakfast at a really low-key waffle place close to home. While there, Teresa gave me a tabletop frame. One side is filled with clay and has Jack's footprints in it (marked with the date and his age), and the other side is one of my favorite recent pics of him.

After breakfast, we went back home so Jack could take a nap. Then we headed out to go bowling. I couldn't really give it my all because of my wrist, but it was just fun to be there. (It was my choice, by the way. ) Then we came back home, and we all took a nap. Jack napped for two hours (he never naps that long), and I snuggled him the whole time. The rest of the afternoon/evening was pretty lazy.

Yesterday, Jack had his 9-month well-baby visit. I was thinking he was getting some immunization, but he doesn't have anything again until 12 months. Yay! They did give him a TB test and drew a little bit of blood to check his iron levels. It was otherwise a pretty uneventful appointment. Once again, I noticed that the nurse didn't measure him correctly. To her defense, he was crying pretty hard, as he had been very fussy all day. So it wasn't the easiest task in the world. Anyway, she said that he was only 27 inches, which I know isn't true. I haven't gotten around to measuring him myself at home lately, but he was 27 inches at his six-month check-up, and he has definitely grown since then. He outgrew (in length) his 9-month sleepers a few weeks ago, and his onesies really pull on his shoulders. So I know he's taller than that. And just look at the pic at the bottom of this post to see that he's definitely taller!

I'm SO happy to report that he has caught back up with his weight. Daycare really set him back. He dropped from the 38th percentile (which was the curve he'd been following since about a month old, since he was a bit of a peanut at birth) to the 17th percentile between 6 months and 7 months. Of course, that coincided with his daycare starvation diet and his illnesses. So in just two months' time, he's gained 2 1/2 pounds! He's up to 18 lb 15 oz now. That's a much faster pace than typical babies his age, so I am stoked! According to KellyMom, the average weight gain for a BF baby at 6-12 months is just 1.75-2.75 ounces per week. He is WAY exceeding that. So I feel really great about his progress, considering how horrible I felt when he lost half a pound while in daycare. He's now in the 37th percentile, so back on his curve.

He still has a munchkin head, at just the 10th percentile. He's always had a small head, even in utero, but I think it's perfectly suited for his body.

We talked about his allergies. Poor thing wakes up with a cough every morning and sounds like mini Darth Vader. As the day goes on, the phlegm breaks up, but he'll sometimes rub his head in the spot where I get sinus headaches. So, unfortunately, he takes after his mommy in that regard. She said that we can do a skin test at a future appointment if I'd like. We'll see. There's not much we can do for him at his age, so it's probably kind of pointless. His previous doctor had suggested a HEPA filter, which would really only work in his room. I can't keep him isolated all day, especially since he LOVES it outside. All this time, I'd thought the darkness he gets under his eyes was from not sleeping well, but she said it's just a symptom of allergies.

She was really happy with how much he's eating and the milestones he's hit. We talked about how he still wasn't officially crawling, even though I've thought he was on the verge for such a long time now. I explained that he pulls himself all over the place, rolls around, scoots, etc. And she said that babies have different modes of mobility, with crawling being just one of them. Not all babies do it, and she said that's perfectly fine. She said I can pretty much feed him any table foods I want now. I already am doing that, just little bites of whatever I'm eating, and he's also eating purees every day and oatmeal in the morning. She also confirmed that his gums sure look likes he's teething again. And she commented on his stranger anxiety, since he cried when she picked him up. That's a fairly new thing, but he was also really fussy before his appointment, so I don't know which was driving his tears.

After we got home, I was playing with him in his room, and he acted like he was going to crawl. I was chatting with SIL, who was in the hallway, and she got really excited when she saw him move a knee forward. So I got down on my belly, at his level, and started encouraging him. He crawled to me! It was probably five "steps."

So then SIL got in on the action, and we started putting his favorite toys all over. He was crawling to everything, slowly but surely, and he'd stop to take breaks by sitting. Then he'd go back onto all fours like it was nothing. SIL ran downstairs to tell DH to come watch, so he did. And, sure enough, Jack kept doing it. By the end of playtime, his little knees were so red.

It's obvious now that this milestone is the reason he's not been sleeping well and had been particularly fussy yesterday. It's crazy how fast a baby goes from not doing something to just doing it. It was the same way with sitting unassisted for him. It was as if he woke up one morning and acted like he'd been sitting without using his arms forever.

This morning after I changed his diaper, I sat him on his blanket so I could grab his clothes. And he started crawling off of it, toward his toys. When we got downstairs, same thing. Just crawling everywhere. Goodness, we're in trouble now!

I guess that's about it. I thought I'd end this post with a video of him crawling for the first time and a comparison of his newborn, 3-month, 6-month, and 9-month elephant pics.

9 months & 1 week old

I measured Jack last night, and I got 28 inches. I actually measured him three times, just to make sure, and I got a second opinion from DH and SIL. So that puts his height at the 36th percentile. With his weight at the 37th percentile, he's looking pretty darn proportionate.

I've been planning his birthday party, and I'm really excited. It's going to be small, since we don't have any family (minus SIL and BIL) out here, probably about 15 people. Still, though, it should be a lot of fun. I'm buying him a toddler chair for his birthday and probably just some little things, nothing too spectacular. I would love to get him a personalized chair, but I'm not crazy about any of the colors/designs from PBK or Land of Nod. So I might just go with a non-personalized P'kolino chair. It will still be super-cute.

The party will have a nautical theme. I've been pinning some things here and there and adding a lot of stuff to my "favorites" on Etsy. I haven't really pulled the trigger on any actual purchases yet, except for his birthday onesie (see pic below). It's so freakin' adorable. The only difference from this pic is that his name will be in red. And that's a removable bow tie. How cute is it!

Go, Jack, Go!

Jack and Sean are about the same size! Sean still fits well in his 9 month clothes and could probably still do some 6 month things so I think a lot of Sean's weight and height are in his enormous head!

I can't believe you're already thinking of his first birthday! I love that onesie! Where did you find it?

It is so hard to find the time to get on here. I check in once per day but don't always have time to post.

Sounds like William made up for last Mother's Day and you had a great one!
