Hi ladies! I wrote a looong post during A's nap today and lost it aaaargh!
Emily! Congrats mama! Another sweet bundle! Welcome little Sarah! I hope we get to see pics soon and you're having a rich babymoon!
Skana, hope your feeling better and your Dh's job signals a turning of the tides! Hugs to you! Love your pics and everybody's too!
Well, I woke up to a long lost "pal" this morning, good ol' AF! Almost two years to the date since my LMP with August (Nov 13th)- kinda wild! Very interesting timing, since DH and I have just been discussing whether or not to start using birth control. We hadn't been using anything but we have both been exhausted and at our wits' end in dealing with August lately and were re-thinking the idea of having another.
Don't get me wrong, we love him so dearly and he's a lot of fun as well but he is definitely high- intensity, especially lately, working on some molars for a couple weeks it seems. He bit my nipple so hard in his sleep last night and it is so sore today I can barely let him nurse on that side. He just keeps us on our toes!

He is still talking up a storm, it's amazing! Sock,shoe, moon,star,heart, toes, ears, hair, car, truck are some of his most recent ones. Basically anything we take the time to teach him. Still no walking though, plenty of standing and balancing and a few isolated steps but he's in no rush..
Cute story... yesterday at dinner, I asked August if he wanted a little chicken and he said "bock, bock!"- too cute! Also if we sign bath, he'll take off for the bathroom, excitedly saying bath, bath, bath...he does the same if we say shower, which I don't know how he figured out??
He also does say No more than we'd like, even though we say it in limited circumstances. i think he is just fascinated by the concept, which he completely understands. We have started signing STOP if he starts doing something dangerous or unwanted, but as soon as we say stop, he'll say stop! nonononono! Oy!
My guy is nursing 5-8 times a day or so and we are starting to think about how to transition to DH putting him down, any advice is welcome!
There is more to tell about all that I am thankful for, but that's all for now!
