Sorry I've been MIA. We haven't been home much. And so I haven't had a computer handy to check in. I've been keeping up with posts though....
QoC: OMG, you guys have been a busy fam! Love the pics!
Helen: Congrats and happy vibes for a HH9!
DiD: Job vibes to your hubby! I hope he gets it! And BTW, yes, you are nuts for having baby lust again so soon! But I love you for it... it's inspiring and helps me remember how easy I have it with just one other person to care for (well, 2 if you count DH!)
Fern: Have fun! You've inspired me to take an impromptu day hike in southern Indiana tomorrow. We'll leave first thing in the morning.... can't wait to let Isa wander in the forest. We're hitting the spot where DH and I got married.

Speaking of which, I have a confession
Amy, I've been on the same train. I've found a wonderful Parent's Day Out program at a local Unitarian Church. It runs on a school schedule though, and they don't start again until September. It's just as well, though, because now that I've found a wonderful place for her to be, I'm
And, though we've not put it together yet, I'm pretty sure we think a crib (convertible, like yours) is the way to go for Isa too. She always makes a big fuss over them at baby stores and signs bed
and reaches up. I have asked her several times if she wants a bed like that and she is always so enthusiastic! So weird! So much for my cage-free baby!
She does roll off her mattress a lot and seems to really want some boundaries for her sleeping space.
: I don't get it, but I do understand that that is definitely what she is asking me for.
In other news, she's finally talking! Every day new words. Not counting like I did with the signs. I'm just sitting back and watching her unfold at her own pace. She's such a gem! My favorite story of a verbal surprise is this: I had a lit a small green birthday candle to light our (ancient) oven and she signed green
and said, "GEEN!" So I reply, "Yes, this candle is green." Then, she signs like
and says clear as day, "I like geen!"
I'm so proud! Her first sentence!
