I am fascinated by the while chart thing because it is like a different language. I don't get it at all It's like looking at Russian or something. I "charted" by keeping track of days and CM. The CM thing is really accurate for me.

Tammi- those pics of Angelica are precious. I especially love the one with her new bay Anabel

aw! jelly is soooo cute! i love her hair! I wish sage's hair would hurry up and grow already!

well, the temp chart is like this: your temps are a certain normal range until you O, then they spike and stay high due to progesterone in your system. this lasts for 12-16 days, then if you're not pg, your temp drops back to normal and you get AF. if your pg, your temp stays up thru your pregnancy. Mine spiked again today. Mine has been all out of whack ever since we decided to start TTC again. I dont get it.

I attempted to chart with Danielle but after about 4 months I was so confused and frustrated I just gave up, I got pregnant the following month.

Tammi ~ is baby Anabel the one that cries and wets and has tears and everything? Danielle wants a doll like that - ya, just what I need in this house, something else that cries, pees and makes messes

I'm also very irregular - I used to be exactly 28 days until I had Mikayla, I haven't been the same since (in so many ways) I think that's why charting was so frustrating for me

Dani also wants that one that talks, can't remember her name, but in the commercial the doll asks for breakfast and the girl gives her a cookie and the doll says "silly mommy, cookie not for breakfast" and the girls mom says "wow, she really understands" The overacting in that commercial makes me groan every time it comes on - either it's the acting or the impending "mommy will you get me that" that I know is coming Needless to say, that doll will NOT be finding a home here - and neither will the Furby she's been bugging me about! No more noisy toys!!!

Have you seen the commercial for some satellite radio thing, where Snoop Dogg is asking people if they've seen his necklace and he gets to Ellen DeGeneres and she says things like "you want to grow a beard" "you want to become Amish" etc. Well, I just had an Ellen moment.

I was standing in the bathroom trying to get ready to leave, Jesi comes in and says "ma ee ee ah"

Me: You want make up on? (I was doing my make up when this started)
J: No
Me: You want to brush your teeth?
J: No ma ee ee ah
Me: You want a vitamin
J: No ma ee ah (this time she lifts her hair)
Me: you want your hair brushed? (by this time that Ellen commercial is giong through my head)
J: No ma ee ee ah (again lifts her hair - showing her ears)
Me: You want your earrings on?
J: uh huh - as she runs to the chair and puts her head down so I can get to her ear

Part of me doesn't want her to grow up, but there is another part of me that wishes she didn't use the same sounds or words for multiple things, sometimes it gets really frustrating for both of us when I can't figure out what she wants

that is adorable.
did she not have her earrings in??
post #31 of 119
no, she wanted them out last week. We take them out periodically

we're going bye bye in daddy's truck - he's got mine so he can take it in to get the radio fixed. hopefully the rumble of the engine in his truck will put Jesi to sleep :

Anyone else just now putting their Christmas tree up? It took me all fricken day and when Evan got home it took him all of 30 minutes to move half the ornaments around.

It was soooo sad tonight. We put Evan to bed and he really wanted me to rock him for a minute. Well, I got in the rocking chair and I realized that he hurt me too much to hold him and rock him. He was crying for me to rock him, and I was crying because I had to keep telling him "Baby, Mama can't rock you right now. I can get in the bed and snuggle with you" He tried that but really wanted to rock. Broke my heart. I can only realistically pick him up a couple of times a day. He weighs 28-29lbs and my tummy is like 30 so my poor back and hips can't take it :

Only 2 more months darlin' That's my mantra lately. Poor Evan, it's so hard because they don't understand. And with our hormones the way they are, watching them cry leads to more tears on our part. Jesi is going through a mommy only phase and wants me to hold her all the time - I'm only carrying half the baby weight you are and she only weighs just over 20 pounds and it kills my back to hold her for too long so I can't imagine how it must hurt you! They'll be resentful and angry for awhile, but they have to learn that they have to share mommy, right? He won't let dh rock him?

OMG Amy : : That is wonderful news! Im so happy for you! Are y'all excited?

Thanks fur the hugs, guys. : It is really hard to admit that I can't do certain things anymore. Dh usually does rock him if he requests it, but he was working last night so it was all me. DH had already bathed him and put him in his jammies. Lately DS has been on a daddy kick, exceppt for bedtime. Then it is all me.

On a good note, today was a day of doc appts. Evan had his 2y well-baby checkup this morning. He is 29lbs5oz and 36inches tall. : No wonder I can't pick him up! I can't believe that he was only 8lbs 5oz and 20 1/2 inches 2 years ago tomorrow. The ped thinks we should at least get an evaluation from a speech therapist, since he still isn't talking at all. . He said that it was abvious that he understands everything so it would be an expressive speech delay, which is the most common, especially in boys. I'm not really worried, and will see what happens when we get the evaluation.

I also had another u/s today and the babies are doing great. : The little boy already has fat rolls and the littel girl's hair was visible. I have this feeling that her haair is red. I asked my doc if I had gotten bigger this past week, and he said "Uh yeah- you are really big". I'm as big as I when Evan was born at 39w 4d. :

okay- I'm through writing my novel.

I got another neg hpt. and I think AF will find me tomorrow....: dont tell her where i am, lol.

DH got home lastnight. he's still exhausted from working 10 days in a row. poor guy.

we did manage to take sage to see santa today! he was great with her and spent like 10-15 minutes w/ her, (there were no other kids there at the moment), and he let us take our own pictures instead of paying for the mall pics. I LOVE SANTA!!! I told him so, lol. anyway, I'll upload the pics when I get a chance. Sage didnt talk to him or anything, but he read her a book, played with her, etc. she liked it, and she's been really into santa stuff lately, she was just really shy...I told Santa it was b/c she's never met a celbrity before, lol!!

ok, DH calling for dinner, lol, ttfn!
