So Happy Sunday Sparkfam! It's been a beautiful day here in Chicago, I am in a class at church called Leadership and it's going well. My last class the teacher told me that in a kinda kind way, "that I speak my mind?" Which is kind of weird cause I hold a lot back. I probably over share in blogs or papers What's weird is that it hurt my feelings because I when I speak, I'm not outing other people, I'm speaking on myself....Any thoughts? I NEED YOUR HELP!

Anyhow, my grandson is still spending 2-3 nights a week to go to my besties for daycare. It is very tiring especially since he is set for night sleeping. He wakes up still 1-2x during the night for feeding. The doctor says no milk but I give him a scoop in 4oz of water. He too big and his appetite is too to play with him. His mom also says she has the same problem so there it is. A scoop of milk, he turned 6months yesterday and isn't crawling, he is however rolling, he has fallen out the bed 2x. I caught him from rolling out about 12! He is too funny, loud, smiley and cracks himself all the time. His brother is doing well in school, he has all good grades except in math. So time to get the ruler out and loose change. I used to love to do odd jobs for neighbors and run to the store for them for money of course. That fed my habit for junk which I didn't have to hit my mother up for all the time. That could be his incentives for learning too.

I am junked out over here. I need to try to curb my junk food habit. I am trying to chew the gum again and eat more green stuff...YUK! No thrill in that but it is tasty with the right seasonings. I haven't worked out as much as I wanted but I'm not working out as much as I am munching out...UGH!

So what have you guys been up too? I keep you all in my prayers and thoughts and ever so grateful to God for leading me to Sparkpeople.

God bless & happy Sonday!

    I wouldn't worry about the little one not crawling, mine is 7 mo and still not crawling. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I think you should do what makes you comfortable, there is no right or wrong way. Each of us has our comfort zone-something of your own unique self.

    Sounds like your grandson is hungry and not getting something that is waking him up at night. Might look at his food and see if you can give him more protein or veggies to see if that would take care of the waking up in the middle of the night. As for the Sunday class I would go to the leader in private and ask that person what did they mean by it. You did say that they said it in kindness, so ask what they meant.

    Why isn't your grandson supposed to have milk? I guess he needs formula at his age no? My son was eating food and nursing like a champion at that age. Wow, you are doing amazing helping your daughter out so much. That boy is going to be attached to you. :) Anyway, I have been cooking most of the day. I made oat banana muffins for breakfast and chili and cornbread for lunch. It was not a light day, but we needed something warm. We are switching to more wintery foods now that it's getting so cold out there. Anyway, you get some sleep when you can! I will be praying for you. (And keep speaking your mind.)

    I'd be proud to have the leader tell me that I speak my mind! I'm sure you do it without trampling on others' thoughts/feelings. It's really important to feel empowered to say what you think--that's what makes for good discussions. Be proud of yourself, Dee!

    Sorry your little guy is having struggles sleeping through the night. Very likely it's because of his size. My son gave up his middle-of-the-night nursing last of all . . . but then he grew up to be 6 feet 6 inches tall. Giving water instead of milk is a great way to taper it off, so that waking up is not so rewarding.

    I tried out a great soup recipe today--pumpkin & peanut butter in broth, Thai style. It was SO GOOD! That's my favorite way to get veggies: in dishes with other yummy flavors.

    Good to hear from you--I've missed you lately! emoticon

    I miss my little one at 6 months. I don't miss the sleepless nights though.
