Re: Less movement.... Freaking out!

Ella used to do this to me and it does make you worry. She was always usually so active. I used to have a cold drink and lay down and talk to her. She always moved after a little while.

I agree...

Re: Preparing to lose my sanity

We did the same thing with Ella except DH would sing "Row, row, row your boat' and now it calms her down when she is upset.

Re: Where is your baby when.....

I usually try and wait until Ella goes back down for her morning nap. Otherwise I put her in her bouncer at the door to the bathroom. Or sometimes I shower before DH leaves for work.

Re: Sweaty head?

Ella tends to get a sweaty head a lot too and I have to be careful how I dress her to go in the car seat as she tends to overheat easily. I just figured it was because she has so much hair!
