    Chaz Moms and Moms-to-Be Chat (everyone welcome)

    I've been using cloth diapers since Nora was about 1 month old. It's so hard in the beginning, especially with the number of times they poop! I'd definitely recommend stocking up on newborn disposable diapers. Even if you don't use them you can always return or donate them! We used...

    I can't believe how big all of our babies are getting! Nora is 10 months old and the time has just flown by. I love this age (I swear I say this about every age) and Nora is so much fun. She is getting ready to start walking- she stands on her own and I keep expecting her to walk across the...

    Baby names!!!

    I like uncommon but classic names. For girls I like Nora (obviously the favorite!), Marlie, and Emmelia. For boys I like Ryland and Parker. I also like Rowan and Liam (loved it since I was a kid but it's so popular now!).

    I had morning sickness during my first trimester, but besides that I felt really good during my pregnancy. Actually, I had never felt better in my life! My asthma even improved. Why do babies grow so fast? Nora turns 8 months old tomorrow. She is into EVERYTHING. She stands...

    I think breastfeeding is just so beautiful. I've been nursing Nora for over 7 months and I plan to continue until she's at least 2. I keep planning on having hubby take some good nursing photos of us. We're going to the beach or a park this weekend and hopefully I'll remember the camera!

    For chazzers in long-term relationships - how often?

    I also vaguely remember DD's boyfriend living in a dorm situation at the track which didn't allow dogs. DD was living with her parents and dogs.

    For chazzers in long-term relationships - how often?

    I've seen a decent amount of multigenerational living, especially amongst my generation. Income (or lack thereof) isn't even a factor. I've known accountants, students, grocery store employees, etc, etc who are "roommates" with their parents. I also have a couple of friends whose parents live...

    Congrats!!! I'm in a constant state of baby fever! I really want at least 3 years between Nora and the next baby, but I love being a mom so much it's hard to wait. She's sitting and crawling and I miss the little baby days.

    Chihuahuas and other tiny breeds

    I have no problem with my chihuahuas around larger dogs. Rory is only 35lbs, but size has never been an issue. I've never considered mine fragile- my smallest is less than 4lbs and my largest is 7lbs. They get out of the way fast. Mine have all done well with Nora so far. We call Zara...

    Just took the plunge of booking a trip with a baby! We initially wanted to do Alaska or Iceland but decided to do something a bit easier for our first "longer than a weekend car trip" with Nora. We're going to fly into Salt Lake City, and go to Arches National Park, Yellowstone National...

    Zander...Feb. 14th 2005 - Jan. 18th 2015

    I am so sorry, Lyz :( Zander was such a handsome boy and I always enjoyed seeing your photo threads and reading about him. He was obviously so loved and is now running free on the bridge without pain. (((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))) and love sent your way.

    The Venting Thread

    I hate cancer. My favorite co-worker died 3 years ago from Stage 4 colon cancer. She was in remission for years and it came back too quickly. She had 2 boys in college and was a newly wed who loved to travel. The cancer came back in March and she passed away in October of that same year...

    Ivy and Finn are so cute! Are there any more Chaz babies due? Nora had her 6 month pediatrician visit today. She weighs 14lbs 4oz and is 24.5" long! I wish I could slow down time. _DSC9770.jpg by Chihuahuaesque, on Flickr She has 5 teeth! _DSC9755.jpg by Chihuahuaesque, on Flickr...

    Vanillasugar/nilly update?

    This isn't fair at all. She was such a good person and I don't understand someone so amazing can pass away at such a young age. It's just not fair.

    Congrats, Dizzy! Ivy is adorable! I'm sorry to hear that you ended up with a c-section... if you do need to talk, feel free to send me a PM. I labored naturally for almost 30 hours at my birthing center before needing a c-section. At first I was upset because I didn't have the birth I...

    The new Chaz babies are so adorable! Congrats, mamas! Dizzy, I can't believe you haven't popped yet! Any updates? Here's Nora and Santa from a couple of weeks ago. They took SO many awesome pictures of her! TSP148833 by Chihuahuaesque, on Flickr

    Baby Stuff (human baby!)

    I know we've been talking already, but I figured I'd reply in here too with more information for anyone who is interested :) Nora's napping at the moment so I have a little bit of time. We've been using cloth diapers and I am really happy we made that decision! We started with Bumgenius...
