    That's awesome Midge!!

    My sil & I went hiking at Shindagin Hollow forest today with our kids & we had a fabulous time. There's a lean-to up there that's a free-for-all to use for camping. I really want to try that some time this year. It's very remote and absolutely gorgeous up there.

    I don't think everyone here pops into new moms very often, so I'm sharing this link here. A facebook album with pictures of Robbie's first year. I tried to get pictures as close to the 8th and 22nd of each months, Robbie's adjusted and birth birthdays.

    I was going to wait until his birthday to do everything, but I was too excited.

    I only know 1 person irl who was encouraged to not gain weight when pregnant. She told me the dr was concerned about her weight contributing to previous miscarriages. I don't know the details or anything else, actually. That's just what my friend said.

    I would think, however, that someone with more poundage could better afford to not gain than someone who has little/no excess fat. But what do I know? I'm certainly not a dr.

    I love Shindagin Hollow. You should definitely do some camping.

    The thing is... my *MIL* should not be lecturing me on weight, especially when I'm pregnant, kwim?

    I don't know but my mom was overweight when she got pg with me and only gained 12 lbs total and I was 7 of that.

    She had lost a LOT of weight (over 100 lbs) and was thin when she got pg with my sister, and gained a little over 30 with her (and sister and I were exact same weight and height).

    I'm thinking that if I ever got pg, I really shouldn't gain much weight. I already consume enough calories to support a growing baby (otherwise I would be thin already!). As long as I get enough vitamins and nutritionally sound food, I figure I should be good to go. Maybe 10-15 lbs tops is all that would be recommended for me to gain.

    Whoa ... when I was growing up I went hiking/camping with my girl scout troop and we stayed in a lean-to that looked very much like that. Can't be the same place, though. I think we were in Westchester somewhere, or north of that. Not sure, though.

    I think this lean-to was built in 2005 (?) but I'm not sure. I know it's not every old. There are many of them around though, and all would look very similar.

    My sil says she'd be scared to stay there, but I think it would be fun.

    Definitely not the same place, then! Would have been the 80's sometime!

    It was a fun trip but I remember it being very windy and the wind oriented so it went right in the open wall. It was April, so it was pretty cold. Definitely try it in summer if you're going to.

    I confess my mom has a lullabye she sings to Charlie, and I loooove it!!

    Breakfast is over, its time for a nap....
    Lay your head down, and sing me your song...
    You'll be asleep before too long"

    Umm, so what is a lean-to? Does it just have three walls and a roof?

    I'm a city girl and have never been camping......

    I agree. I think all women should pretty much mind their own business when it comes to another womans pregnancy...unless of course you have a female ob/gyn, midwife, or doula.


    And all of the sudden it occurs to me, I have lived at the base of a mountain my whole life in that state with the most national parks, and I have never really gone camping. I've been to a church camp, and it was gorgeous, an absolutely beautiful camping site, but there wasn't any real outdoors-roughing it kind of thing going on.

    Now I want to go camping.

    I've wondered about that. Plus, at this place the fire pit is very close to the opening. If the wind was blowing wrong, it would be blowing all over us. But it's been up for years and it hasn't caught fire yet, so....? It must be fairly safe.

    Yep, that's what a lean-to is. Camping is great fun...although I've never done it in a lean-to myself. I have slept in a tent before though!

    You really should go! I love camping a lot. It's fun for the kids too.

    Am out of town visiting my mom right now just wanted to pop in and say hi!

    And wanted to confess that I am sooooooo ready to go home. I love my mom but miss DH and my house. I really don't like staying at other people's houses and am kind of regretting deciding to stay here for so long. I will be here until the 28th and then will be staying in Chicago for a week and am hoping that DH, who will be driving up to get us to go to Chicago (his hometown) won't go crazy and make me want to smack him while we are there, he always goes crazy in Chicago and we have horrible arguments and I swore I wouldn't go back because of this, but my MIL hasn't seen the kids in over a year and I love her so I will brave DH's tantrums to visit her and do my best to avoid him.

    Also, wanted to add, that I was overweight with both my PGs and gained 20lbs with each and my OB was fine with that and congratulated me on not gaining too much. Ky was 8lbs and I lost the weight within 2 weeks Elle was 6.9lbs and I lost the weight in a month

    Oh, forgot to confess that I was offered a job right before I left town!!!! I am soooooo looking forward to working. I am a SAHM right now and really am not a mom cut out for staying at home so I am happy that I'll be working again. It pays 5K more than my goal salary so I am uber excited about that even though I'm worried about Elle adjusting to daycare, but I know she'll be fine and I will transition her slowly since my new boss, who is also a family friend, says I can start part time if I want and she doesn't need me to start officially until Sept so we have plenty of time to get Elle used to her daycare staff.

    I confess I seriously love my child. It's storming pretty badly outside right now. Thunder boomed and I heard her in her room, "Mr. Brown makes thunder, BOOM BOOM BOOM!"

    Erin, there's no place like home. So true! I know by the end of my vacations, I'm sooo ready to sleep in my own bed and eat in my own kitchen. Fingers crossed that your DH doesn't go crazy in Chicago. Also, congrats on the job!
