Reunion Today

Today we went to a reunion for my prenatal yoga class. Most of the women had had their babies so it was fun to see all the mommas and babies (and some of the women who were getting really big bellies). I had not seen any of them since May because after I went into preterm labor in May I was on bedrest so I couldn't go to yoga anymore. It was pretty neat because we all met in a park, and there were a bunch of new mommas sitting around talking about our babies, nursing, and just having a great time! There were also lots of dads there, too, so Bill got to chat with some men who are also new dads. He doesn't meet a lot of parents really because his program does not have a lot of parents or even students who are married or partnered. Molly mostly just slept in the Moby, oblivious to her surroundings. She got hungry after a couple hours so she ate and then went right back to sleep.

She has been a little fussy, probably because of her vaccines from Thursday. She has also had diarrhea, which was almost certainly caused by the vaccines. Hopefully she will be feeling all better in a couple of days. Bill gave her a dose of baby Tylenol today before we left for the park, and that seemed to really work to make her feel better. She calmed down pretty quickly after that.

I learned that Molly is developing good taste in music. Yesterday I gave her a bath (the second time by myself, and the first time when Bill was not home), and I cranked up some Waylon Jennings and sang to Molly Z. She enjoyed it!

Also, last night Molly slept for five straight hours. I put her to bed around 9:20, and she slept until about 2:20! I hope she is back to sleeping until around 2AM again.

I think it is great that you are taking advantage of opportunities to meet with woman who are on the same path in life that you are right now. With the exception of Kim and Bill's cousins, the support you are getting is coming from the hearts of women and men who have been parents around 30 years. Hope you can continue to do that often.
Love you all!
