Life has been INSANE since Noah has been born. Going from 4-5 was by FAR the hardest transition! Plus my oldest started kindergarten on Monday, so things are just crazy. I started going to a fitness center, so that takes my mornings up, plus we're re-doing our downstairs floors (from carpet and linoleum to wood!!!) and re-painting. I took on a little much at once like always Noah is doing great, he's a sweet baby, but also needy of course, he screams from 7-8:30 like clock work nightly. Makes bedtime for the others a nightmare!But we're figuring out what works for him and I basically throw everyone in bed at 10 till 8 and get into the bath with him and soak for 20 minutes with him laying on my legs and he LOVES it. Gives me some alone time with him too.

Anyway, I just wanted to update everyone, I'll share pics of Noah and our finished downstairs whenever we get done (next year? lol) Hope everyone is doing great, and congrats to Farmer'swife, I hear a baby has been had!

Do you have a health food store near you? YOu might try picking up some Cocyntal. It's a homeopathic for colic/gassy/fussy babies. I find that at around his age they get fussy of evenings and I'd give my baby a dose of this and it was amazing how well it worked....I have shared this with many and the few that listen are AMAZED how well it works. It's COMPLETELY safe, natural, and tasteless. I can't say enough about this product!

Does sound like you are crazy busy. Thanks for checking in. Would love to see pics LOL

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
