Nov/Dec '03...Its October!! - Page 2

post #21 of 120
Hi all ...

Halloween ... I've been informed that all 4 of us (Henry, William, dh, & me) are going as ducks. H & W are the ducklings & dh & I are Mr. & Mrs. Mallard from "Make Way For Ducklings."

Birthday ... we're doing a family plus party -- a few family friends with kids plus the family. He's terribly excited about the cake and candles. I wanted to do a Little Einsteins theme but there are no decorations out there yet although I did find instructions for making a Rocket cake, which I'm going to try to do. Doesn't Disney realize how much money they could make off of me with Little Einsteins merchandising?

William is the anti-Henry -- mellow mellow mellow. He can actually be put down and remain content for more than 3 seconds. He's a good sleeper, too. Such a refreshing change! The adjustment has been a little rough. I'm not sure if all the insane behavior is due to age, illness, William, being almost weaned, or a combination. Nevertheless, I spend most of my days feeling :

Henry does love his little brother. Loves to give him hugs and such. Unfortunately, that also means sharing cooties, so they're both nursing their second colds since Labor Day. I'm completely used to having two. Seems like it has always been this way. However, among the locals, I am apparently some sort of freak for having done the following by myself with 2 kids, with the baby just over 6 weeks old (most of this was started when William was about 2-3 weeks old): gone to the park; down full grocery shopping and errands; gone to storytime at the library; and generally appeared in public. Maybe I'm nuts, but if I don't go get food, no one else will, so there you have it.

Christy ... congrats on the house!

Liz ... glad Evan is feeling better. Hope he continues to improve.

Letter learners ... www.starfall.com is excellent. Henry LOVED this site for a long time.

Gotta go get myself ready for bed.

Three is such a big number to me.
I think I was the biggest protester on that one star.
I do remember so well.
I dont want my little witch to turn 3.

Evan had his tubes put in and adnoids removed on Friday and he is already speaking more clearly. His allergy tests came back much better than we thought so we won't be doing shots

I'm quite overwhelmed- the twins and Evan are enough- I didn't need familiy drama and midnight packing on top of it. : :

I am so glad to read that my future son-in-law is doing better.
Give him a huge squeeze for me please.

I am sorry to hear about the drama crap.
Maybe you'll have better news as i read on??

we have made no plans for b-day parties. We'll probably think about that once we get moved into the house...(new pics in sig, took more today, they have it finished! still waiting on well/septic/electric before we can move in!)

Sage wants to be a care bear for halloween, and I'm trying to find the cheer bear costume for her that doesnt cost $36!!! : everytime I try to get one on ebay, i get outbid at the very.last.minute. : what are your kids going as for halloween??
Sorry christie-
I am being a bad
nov/dec 03 momma
I have been posting a little bit less here (only the last week or so) but i am a bad "03 mama"
I have just been posting quick to thread and say "i'll be back" and forget when i do come back. I am a naughty mama.
Jelly has still been trying to talk up a storm. Mostly only I know what she's saying still. I loved it tofay though when i ceaned her little leg up(something sticky) and I said" thank you mama" and she repeated me,
she stil isnt going on the potty. I wish she would though cause I have been dealing with stupid cd cleaning problems and it's been making me crazy.:
She made a new friend when Jonathan started school. Hannah is a week older tha her (her brother is in the same class as Jonathan)
Boy can that girl talk!!! Not sure how I feel about it yet though cause she is always saying she is happy to see jelly but talks about how she's (jelly) a baby and never wants to share her toys with her. I think she thinks jelly is a "baby" cause she doesnt talkas well and she still sees her in a stroller when we get jonathan (jelly doesnt listen to me very well and needs to be dragged from the park area all the time which is why i bring her stroller)
Hopefully it'll all work out well cause we both need irl friends and she can be a sweet little girl when she wants to be.
gotta go, it's so late and i have to be up at 7am!!

Oh
I was thinking about asking paul about doing the "big party" and his moms or jellys Godparents house this year.
It's such a pain to clean up ever so perfect(at home, 60 miles away) here to find out that half the family isnt coming and we could have a cake here on her birthday for the 2 whole neighbors we invite locally on her actual birthaday.

we'll see.

Jelly loves the care bears but she also loves mickey mouse and i have that size costume that will fit her. She also loves nemo and last year she was squirt so i will see which she likes better and go from there. I also have a tinkerbell costume I bought on sale at disney store.... we'll see.

get a sniper program if you dont have one christie. at least one snipe per week is free!

Way to go Jessica!!

for those of yoy that do videos, Letter Factory is great for learning letter sounds. It is a Leap Frog vid and my speech therapist recommended it. Evan loves it and it helps tremendously in his prounouciation.

Ugh- gottta go. other babe crying
we are leapfrog freaks in this house ow.
Jelly can sound most of the letters and says alot of them too. I LOVE listening to her try and sing the abc's when we're in the car and the cd is playing.
She is so vocal in the car.

A word i love this week-
Movie is "moomie"

Check ebay!! They seem to have almost everything!

YOU ARE NOT A FREAK!!!! They are freaks for not seeing what is natural right in front of their faces!!

Tammi! glad to see you!

Devonn, Sage is all about the mama love, too, lol. she just says it for no reason, and it is the best thing ever!

I think I'm going to drive 40 miles today to see if the target in bay city still has those care bears costumes for 19.99. they dont have them online, just in-store, at that price.

b/c it gives me an excuse to drive by where our house is being built, (20 miles away) and check on the contractors... Plus, i like to drive and DD likes the fall colors...PLUS if they dont have it at target, i know they have it at a haloween store for $24.99 there...still cheaper than all the other prices at other store for $36-$38.

Hi all. I don't have the energy to say much so all I can do is say :


Evan is wearing me out. Tami- Evan would be sweet to Jelly. : I'll bet they would have their own language before long.


David is crawling. backwards, but still mobile I'm so not ready for that. we move 2 weeks from today

Drive by post ... hi everyone! We're breathing. SIL's wedding was Sunday and that was insane with 2 kids. Henry did rise to the occasion and was an angel all weekend.

I'll post more later. I need to go sleep ...

: Hi all. Where is everyone?

Okay, I have to admit it to someone. I had to start supplimenting the twins : With all the stress I've been under and the babies crazy nightwaking, I just can't take it anymore. :sob I'm still nursing, but have actually used up all the "free" formula from the breastfeeding kit we brought home from the hospital. I'm trying not to get to worked up about it, but it stilll makes me sad. :

We got the results from Evan's food allergy test and he is allergic to wheat, egg whites and soy. Crap. that is like everything that he eats so we are waiting to go on the elimination diet until after we move, since the thought of making potato bread and pasta makes me want to jump off a cliff

On a good note, I'm excited that we are all going as the incredibles for Halloween. I got Evan some Incredibles PJs and he will be wearing that as his Dash costume, instead of wearing the $30 thing only once. Pjs


And please excuse me if this has been covered( I can barely remember my name at this point) but what is everyone going as for Halloween? : :
