OH. MY. GOODNESS. I am laughing out loud here, Heather! You just totally made my day! I'm not sure reading my musings and moanings is so enjoyable, but I'm touched that you read. FTR, Heather is my one and only blog reader, so come one come all! :LOL:

Okay, then, that settles it. Survey Says, No Xrays on Amara. Let's see what mr. doc says.

Heather thanks SO MUCH for the link, Sherri, we got your number babe. You are the opposite of me in the attention-calling department. May I say how beautiful you are holding your babies! I looove how K is cradling your face. Great photos and about the rudeness.

Hear hear! MMF!

I wish I had time to blog. Someday, maybe. There's an awesome blog by a new midwife who started it when she was a CNM student. How she found the time, I'll never know...oh right, nevermind, she doesn't have a kid. Hah. But anyway, it's a really good blog if anyone's interested: http://www.bellytales.com

I added tropicana to my protected list-is that you Sarah? If it's not let me know, I'm a bit of a novice with the site and might need to confer with the expert heather.

mcsb... I added you to my list, you just have to be logged in to your xanga to see when you visit.

HJ finally settled this evening so hopefully the oversupply is calming down after the last growth spurt. He has a check-up in the morning. Curious how long he is because he seems to grow longer by the day. He almost fits into his Canucks soft leather shoes (dh's fave hockey team or one of them....)

C is so thrilled with the new year, new calendars, new months, etc. She almost can't wait for E's birthday next month and keeps telling her that she's going to get her a big surprise. This sister/sibling thing is dang cute.

nah, Sherri, that's our Juice! As in OJ! Don't worry, it took me a few minutes to figure that out. I'm a little slow at this hour!

Me, me! Tropicana is me. (get it?) Sorry, thought I signed it Juice or something good like that. Lots going on here tonight.

ETA: By "lots going on here" I mean " trying to post with toddler in Downward-facing-dog pose on couch using free leg to kick keyboard."
post #49 of 532
I shoulda known that! I kept thinking that Sarah was in Florida, so maybe that was her....Ok, juice, you're added! Yay! I'm getting readership!!! Sarah do you have a xanga acct?
post #50 of 532
Got it - got in to both you and Heather's. Yay! Thanks.

I am tired. And not looking forward to a 5+-hour car trip tomorrow to the airport (great airport to fly into for party at relatives...not so great to leave from 5 hours away from parents' house). TG we are staying in a hotel tomorrow and actually flying out on Friday, so it's not long car trip + 9-hour plane trip in one day. :

Anybody else's maybaby into dinosaurs in a big way? Lily is all about them. I will have to post a pic of her in her new TRex costume. Tonight my mom was reading to her and Lily was correcting her pronounciation of the dino names.

YAY SOCKS!!!!!!!!!!

i am SO glad! i was feeling so bad i had not rallied myself to get out and get some new ones in the mail. in hindsight i mailed a few other things at the same time and they ask you 'priority or first class?' and all that. and with yours they just printed a stamp and it was done. and so i must have paid SLOW BOAT price!!! but i am glad they made it

you guys are going to force me to sign up for xanga but it is almost bedtime for boys around here. i started a blog recently but it is just for crafty stuff and it is so paltry right now i'm too embarassed to share


happy travels home, sarah. the trip home from my parents' cabin was kinda like that. it is a 5 hour drive from any airport. on the way home last summer we did drive + flight and it took allllllll day. luckily it isn't an east to west flight though.

i think lily's dinosaur love is so cute

time for bedtime snack!
post #52 of 532
Yes, we're fully into dinos here too. Correcting pronunciation, WOW.

Seriously big central theme in Sol's play is people/animals being STUCK, NO PUEDE SALIR. Anything will eventually get "stuck" no matter what the play scenario. And she LOVES it if I suggest the "stuckness".

Another theme: Monsters.

Another thought about Sol: we've come to realize that every day, my beloved Laura brings her a treat of some kind. Since we as first time parents were REALLY strict that her babysitters not give her sweets (Amara is loving the relaxed, second-kid aspect of this) I'm not sure how it started, but I have to admit: I think it's cute, sweet, and loving.

When I was a kid, I wasn't allowed any sweets, to the point that it became a mild obsession for me which I would hide from my mom. She wasn't ridiculous about it, we did have things on occasions, but I was a budding eating disorder regardless. So much so that in fantasy play with my friend, we created a character called Fat Mom. She was the one who gave you all kinds of goodies, treats, said yes to your desires and basically spoiled you rotten. Everything my jazzercising mother was not, at the time, amplified by my being 11 years old.

Today Sol picked up a bushy cattail on her outing with Daddy, and when she brought it home she started sweeping, and pronounced to me that She was Laura, and I was Solie. "Solie? I got somfin for youuuu! *rummages in bag* Here. It's a lollipop." was the first thing she said. Then she swept with great dedication, all the christmas garland she had cut from the tree with scissors, for about a half hour, occasionally calling out to me to give me something from her bag--a pink cat, yo tengo muchos, several more pink cats...

there's somethin kooky going on around here. it shows elsanne as the last poster. but sherri was. hmm

i think i'm developing mastitis those top teeth gnawed up my nipple and now it is painful down the whole side of my boob. dangit.
post #57 of 532
Sorry 'bout the triple post earlier, mamas. MDC was all wonky on me this morning. Those posts didn't show up until much after I initially posted them.

: This is our weather right now! Whenever it gets cold my stoooopid garage door opener decides to go on the fritz, and I had to manually open and shut it this morning before/after taking Katie to skool. :

Hope you can nip the mastitis in the bud. (really bad pun intended
post #58 of 532
Popping in to say how much I can't stand this smilie ----> What is up with that??? Who claps at what someone says online???

Okay, sorry, had to get that out.

Away with you, Mastitis!!!!

Hosting playgroup at my house today and I better get moving. This place is a sty and I really need to pick up all the carp that's all over the floor.
post #59 of 532
it is feeling a lot better today thankfully

i had grand plans of taking both kids to the gym this morning to the playroom. remember the last time i posted about the gym sooooooo long ago? yep - that's the last time i went i have the babysitter coming today though since i didn't get any work done earlier in the week. so maybe i'll still fit it in today. i have a bunch of end of year cleanup carp to do for doug's company though. boooring

ebin only woke 2 times last night. woo woo. he didn't go to sleep until 11 (!) but at least then he zonked out.

where is everybuggy?? it's quiet around here. must be the :::


that smilie bugs me too. but i just love this one :
post #60 of 532
I love that smilie... :

I use it mostly in News and Current Events... or in breastfeeding, and the case against circumcision. So.. basically- when there's a debatable topic. But some people have said things that just took the words right out of my mouth and got the point across so well- I HAD to use it.

Go away Mastitis!!! ::::
