Andy, Ooooch! I hope your finger heals up quickly! Those kind of everyday kitchen accidents can be the worst. DH is always on me about my "knife safety" (or lack therof... )
Wow for Luka, almost sitting already! I realize now that Tess was sitting at 5 months exactly, which isn't far off now at all. I just don't see that Brynn's anywhere near there yet. She's just a laid back chika, I guess.... literally!
HOLY TEETHING BATMAN!!! Wowzers.. Seriously, it's hard to describe but Brynn can go entire days on end without crying once ~ she's just such a jolly one. Well, today was so tough for her, and I just know it's her teeth. Poor baby, she had several hard cries today, and just wanted to sleep, sleep, sleep. My poor girl. The hylands help quite a lot, and I just realized that I only gave them to her once today (duh!!!! silly mama.) She's sleeping now, and hopefully she can get some much needed rest.
My DH is on his way home!!! Woo hoo!! He was in Colorado the last 4 days at a conference, and oh how we miss him when he's away. He called me late this afternoon from the airport and we talked for over an hour ~it was really nice
He said how much he missed me and how lucky he feels that we have such an amazing friendship after talking to some of his colleagues and hearing how they described marrying their wives as "well, sooner or later you realize you're not going to find anything better...." Gack! That is so sad. We've known each other since we were teens, and are each other's best friend.
Ok, sappy moment finito! Can't wait till he's home.
Andy & Laura, I saw you over at the 1000 Challenge! Woo hoo, January Mamas taking it by storm! hee hee.. What I really like about it is that you aren't competing against anyone else, just yourself. It doesn't matter if you make it to 300 minutes for the month or to 2000 ~ it's all a matter of personal goals. Still, it's so motivating to be part of the larger group and keeps me feeling accountable.
Michelle, I'm sorry about your aunt and hope for a speedy and full recovery! It sounds like it'll be a tough wait, the next couple of weeks.
Diapering - honestly, I'm not gung ho either. I *love* CD'ing, but have to admit that I'm perfectly happy with our chinese prefolds and our bummis sww! (froggy print, of course!) I've tried hemp fitted's, AIO and motherease one-size and still I keep coming back to the simple stuff. I do have to admit that they're pretty though! I think the one time I started to consider buying AIO was when Tess was in a "I HATE DIAPER CHANGES" stage at about a year old. Ugh... that was tough - - squirmy and crying and trying to get a prefold on just do not mix! Let's hope that Brynn continues to smile and coo through her diaper changes (a girl can dream...)
Rain - Annie, you're cracking me up with your stats! :LOL It's an apt topic for me too actually, as it rained ALL week here up until today. When it rain in AL, it REALLY rains too! It's all about the extreme weather down here. At least no tornado warnings, and not hurricane season yet.
