Barbara, my mom is still like that too. She gives me advice all the time because she can't help herself. But now I think she realizes I'm going to carry on being crunchy mama and ignore what she says. I just listen to her out of respect and then tell her what I intend to do. She hates that we bed share, baby wear, EBF, delay solids, refuse physical discipline... MM-- Everleigh started trying to crawl yesterday too. Booooo! I'm definitely not in a hurry for this. I like knowing she will be exactly where I've put her when I come back from switching laundry or doing dishes. Cali-- my hair, nails and skin were awful during pregnancy. Skin especially. I look at pictures now from the very end of my pregnancy and I'm horrified. I treated myself to regular manis/pedis.
