Thank you Helen. I made it through the entire wedding and reception without shedding a tear but now that I'm going through all these pictures I'm getting a little steamy. I want to do it all again!

DiD- Pictures are stunning. I'm so glad everything was perfect for you. I know how stressful it's been on ya!

Well ladies, tomorrow after work we are going to go look at the cabin and see what we think. I am pretty convinced though that this is a done deal and we are moving. I'm going to ask the guy we will be renting from if we can start moving our things up just after Christmas but actually *move in* the first of the year. I'm so blessed that this is all coming together though, because it was a random thought conversation Friday as DH and I were coming home from work and now it seems to be a reality. We spent yesterday boxing up all our CD's, books and DVD's. We have one room of the house pretty much all packed right now and just moving through packing things. We are leaving DS's things until the very very end to pack so his stuff is all that is accessible right now in our living room. I hope this goes super smooth. DH's parent's are being insanely non-supportive in this, I just really feel it will be best for us.

Okay enough about me....anyone getting their beads yet?!?!

Mel--you may absolutely suggest the book! And I shall heed your suggestion and go find it! I had it in the back of my consciousness somewhere that that was there and that perhaps I should check it out but I have partly been in a little bit of denial about this, or reluctant to make it into a big problem, but it has been making me a bit nutty at times.

Flapjack--my skin is actually not so bad, with the exception of the fact that I have rosacea. Which seems to be heeding its ugly head a lot lately for some reason. I have some Rx cream for it, but don't really use it because it's slightly irritating and also I'm lazy. And I keep thinking there should be some natural solution but so far haven't really run across anything.

DiD--briefly just looked through your pics and you look very radiantly happy!

kaspirant--if you think you will be comfortable and happy there and won't have any really nasty ramifications for breaking the lease then I'd do it.

Oh, and I meant to mention the other day, that I did get my beads! Thanks to my fellow swappers! It was weird, because it's been so long since I sent mine (no criticism here, I was one of the people holding things up in the first place) and I sort of almost kind of forgot about them or at least wasn't actively anticipating them. My point being, that it was a really weird few minutes for me when I got the mail, because here was this package for me addressed in my own handwriting from someone I couldn't identify, and I didn't remember sending a self-addressed envelope to anyone at all, and just could not figure out where this came from and where this mystery person got an envelope from me that I'd addressed to myself. : Then I had a flash that it must be the beads and all became clear, but it was kind of freaky and surreal for a few minutes there.

Well, on the heels of complaining bitterly about my child not sleeping, she is now asleep as of about 8:45. Which is probably the earliest she's ever gone to bed at night, EVER. I woke her up at about 9 for Brynn's party, and she was playing and having fun there, and then I took her home at 1 and dropped her off for DH to watch while I went to two midwifery related meetings, lasting from 1 until 8!! She only napped for maybe half an hour or 45 minutes while I was gone, so she was tired by the time I got here. I came home, nursed her, she conked out, and I put her into bed!! So I will set a loud and blaring alarm for the morning and drag us out of bed again, and hopefully this can be the start of a new sleep pattern for us. Maybe she just needs more activity and stimulation during the day to wear her out, so I am going to work on that too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRYNN!!!

Kavita, so glad to hear about the early sleep last night. I'm wondering what time she woke up this morning though. Hope it's a trend that continues!

Yes, happy "real" birthday! :-)

Well, I set the alarm for 9 and we both got up but then went back to lie down for milkies and snuggles for a bit. So morning wasn't terrible--but she did have a lot more wake-ups during the night than usual. I think it will take a while to smooth out. Of course I ended up talking with DH and reading a bit so I didn't get as much sleep as I should have. Hopefully she'll nap at an hour where I can nap too!

just a quick pop in to say Happy Birthday to Brynn!!! Happy Labor Day to you, Amy!

I have loved being a mama with you since we were preggo. You are dear to me although we've never even met IRL. Thanks for being my DDC friend!

If it makes you feel any better Keagan is constantly being called a girl

Got them on Saturday! I can't wait to decide what I want to do with them.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BRYNN!

Got my beads this morning Thankyou so much, everyone, they're beautiful. I can't help being struck by the way that both sets of beads from you (from us?) have such similar colourways, and this time, it feels like everyone was feeling bluey-green and mellow Lots of viriditas. And for kaspirant for organising.
Do you remember when Steve had the accident with the clippers and accidentally scalped Alex? Well, he did the same thing to Isaac tonight. I'm mad :

I'm so behind! Ah!

But for starters, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYNN!, and Happy Birthing Day, Amy.

And DiD, CONGRATULATIONS! Thank you for sharing the pictures. You look radiant and beautiful, and your children are stunning. It looks and sounds like it was a truly special day to mark the rest of your life with Jim.

And Helen, I think the two of us sent almost the exact same bead! I felt extra-connected to you seeing that
And I'm another one to chime in with the fact that Finley is constantly being called a girl, like Keagan!

Kaspirant, another (very late) vote for the cabin!

Fern, I hope you have a delightful few weeks back home nesting and getting ready to meet your new little one!!!

Happy December, everyone. I hope everyone is feeling festive and warm and glad.

No real updates here, except that Finley is too cute for words. Nighttime is starting to become a bit of an issue, but I'm not completely ready to face it yet...still hoping it will resolve itself.

My MIL is visiting this week, driving us a bit batty, but we're very grateful for the help she's offering, mostly watching Finley while we can have some rare time together and/or get stuff done around the house.

Hugs to all!

Please, everyone, if you have a spare moment can you send the new babe some bald and hairless vibes? If this one is born with a full head of hair, I think I'm going to cry...

Ok I just have to post this. DD was playing "computer", sitting on her little stool and typing on the windowsill in the kitchen. She said she was writing to her friends, then writing to Daisy...

DH: Rowan, would you like your very own computer - a VTech Smile?

(sound of me gagging)

DD: No thank you Daddy.

DH: Rowan, you're a very polite little girl.

DD: EXCUSE ME! I'm not a little girl. I'm a baby.

Yesterday she ran around proclaiming "I'm a baby human!" a lot.

Skye is very clear on the contradictory nature of being a 2- not a baby, not yet a big girl.
post #38 of 243
Ellie tells me all the time that she's a baby! It probably helps that her big brother calls her a baby all the time, too.

You know I thought the same thing when I opened it

Wowee, I'm behind on posts.

Quick question for all you midwives: (and non-midwives)
When is exposure to Fifth's disease a concern for pregnancy? Just in the first tri, right?
Willem has the beginnings of a cold (very arsinecum-like in nature homeopathically) and his cheeks are all red now. I don't know if he's just had too many egg-containing things in the course of the day (because that sometimes gives him red cheeks) or if maybe he was exposed at school. I'll google it but I just wanted to know if any of you knew
