My husband has loved this song for many years.? It brings tears to my eyes when I listen to it – especially now that my grandma passed away only a few weeks ago.
I subscribe to several different sites and blogs.? I often get daily emails from each one of them and it can get overwhelming.? What I should’ve done ,in the beginning, was created a separate email address to receive all the feeds and updates, but unfortunately I didn’t think of this soon enough.
A friend of mine told me about iGoogle.? It is a personalized homepage where you can store all of your favorite site feeds.? Once you add the feed, each site will have its own section that displays the titles of 3 of the most recent posts.? You can scroll over them to read a portion of the article or click on the title to go directly to the site and read the whole article.
You can also categorize each subject and have a separate page for each one.? Once or twice a week I go into my iGoogle and check out my favorite site posts.? This is a fast and easy way to stay up to date without wasting a lot of time.? I have way too much to do, then to spend hours reading posts.? So, now I am able to read through the titles and only open the posts that interest me.
Another cool feature is that you can customize your page according to the seasons and holidays.? As you can see in the picture above, I have a winter theme on my page.

A friend sent this to me and it brought tears to my eyes. I thought I would share it.
My baby boy is almost 2 months old.? He is my 3rd child, so I pretty much know the ins and outs of being a mom.? The hardest thing for me right now is definitely the lack of sleep.? But one thing I hardly ever hear anyone talk about is BURPING.
What a struggle it is after spending so much time feeding the baby and then anticipating a burp.? Five minutes – pat pat pat, Ten minutes – pat pat pat…..? still no burp.? I try everything – changing positions from shoulder to shoulder, having him sit up on my lap, laying him on his tummy over my legs, and back to the shoulder again….? still no burp.
It just about kills me at 2 in the morning after the baby drinks an entire 5 ounces and I can’t get a burp out of him.? I am half asleep and fighting the urge just to put him back in his bed and forget about it.? I have done this on a few occasions and I suffered the consequences of having a very gassy baby.? Not Good!
I researched quite a bit and did not find any particular “secret” to burping.? Most websites listed the 3 main burping positions and suggested trying all of them until the baby burps.
1.? Over your shoulder
2.? Sitting up on your lap
3.? Laying down on their stomach on your lap
They also said that some babies will like certain positions better.? But MY baby just seems to be a HARD TO BURP BABY.? I have tried it all!
I also read that breastfed babies have less gas than bottle fed babies.?? Bottle fed babies somehow get more air when feeding.? A trick to help with this is to feed the baby in a more upright position.
I would love to hear your suggestions.?? I am desperately in need of some good advice in the burping area.? HELP PLEASE!!
