Whoa, got all the way through the posts.
Andy, on buying a computer - if you're going to upgrade it, like add more memory and a faster processor, larger hard drive, etc, then get a desktop. Otherwise, go for the laptop. For money, I'd spend it on the laptop. Same reason: you can upgrade the desktop later. And you don't care if it's heavy and bulky. But Lisa's point about the laptop being easier to break is good, too. We have a wireless router, too. When friends bring their laptops, they can connect up, and adding Nana linda's computer to the network was easy, too. (Our router was like $150 and cards are $80. Maybe it's cheaper for macs.) If your laptop doesn't have wireless, you may be able to plug a card into it. Anything new will accommodate wireless networking one way or another.
Tigerpurring, your babies are beau-ti-ful! so are your preggo pictures! congratulations on leaving your job to stay home with them.
We put Evelyn in the stroller for long walks, the pouch for short ones, whatever is more convenient for us. We're not die-hard babywearers, here. She likes the stroller.
Miss Evelyn goes through close to 20 dipes a day, I think. Lotsa pee, and multiple poops per day. Sometimes I change her for just a snart.
Who is the baby who holds up arms to be picked up? That is great!
Karen, I work for an Israeli company, so we have lots of Israelis at work. It's funny how few of them are religious at all. More of them are atheists than wear the little hats. (How to you spell yamaka?)
Luka's doing a good push-up there in his photo. Miss Evelyn has not figured out how to use her arms to push herself up yet. On her tummy, she'll push with her feet and plow her nose across the bed. :LOL
Ra'am sounds like a fantastic big brother. Icky about the car ride. We took Evelyn to a party last night, 50 min away. The only bad part of the car ride was that on the way there, she went to sleep, but then DH stopped for gas so he could buy some chewing tobacco
: and she woke up. SHe was waking as he reentered the car, and I told him so. He sat there and opened the can and put some in, and that extra minute did it - she cried and cried for the next 10 min. Grrr! But he was fantastic with her at the party. He carried her in the pouch (frontwards, so she could meet the people) and hung out with us when we went to quiet areas for feeding and changing, and played with her so that I could play a game. Plus, he apologized for stopping. Good husband.
The party was fun, too. Good to socialize. There were jello shots, and I could eat one! Yay! but only one. And two beers, spread out. Before pregnancy, six beers in an evening out was normal. Now, it's been so long, one beer gives me a buzz! Coool. But no getting drunk, so I didn't enjoy the silly game as much as the other people. Bummer.
Lisa, I envy you your new friend.
Ann, the Sears story is toooo funny. Sorry it happened to you, but very glad you told us about it.
Cool that your mom worked for Sun! i will send Java questions her way, through you.
25 pages are more than a page a day. We are loquacious.
Thanks for all the pictures! they are beautiful.
Right now I'm home alone with Evelyn (first time in over a month) and she is sleeping. Wow, lucky me! I should be posting photos and ten other things, but I'm catching up on the posts here, instead.
Michelle, you are doing a great job! If you need to use the SNS in public, think of it as a statement, telling all those other women how important nursing really is.
That recipe looks good, too. I'll try that soon; right now we're out of Midnight Moo. (That stuff is way better than Hershey's.)
Miss Evelyn and Nana Linda and I went to church today. Evelyn was quite good. She likes the music, and the ceiling, and all the people who smile and coo at her. She was very popular.
Whoa, got all the way through the posts. DH just arrived with the groceries. Time to go help put them away. He's cooking this afternoon, some injected chickens and veggie skewers. (It's sunny and cool here, good grilling weather.) Our neighbor and her Jan babe are coming over. Good Sunday to everyone! Lisa, I hope you get your cabinets. That hot tub would have been good for all of us to hang out in. I can get to Ohio.
