Lori - how are you guys doing? I can't find that book anywhere over here so I'm just going to buy it on amazon. Can't wait to read it.
Can't wait to see that pic, it must've been awesome to watch her admiring a baby so small.
We are hanging in there, so far, yK? Has been more stressful emotionally than financially actually. At least for now. We argue alot, but its just become part of our existence together now, and we know it'll change when the circumstances change. But, dh is really ready to go back to work, even though he's been a great SAHD - he is feeling all sorts of stuff about it I guess. And, for me its been really hard - made lots of changes in mine and Ds' relationship and not really for the better IMO. I feel like he chooses dh over me all the time now, and I don't necessarily feel "jealous" but more hurt I think. And wondering how ds really feels, but maybe I am just too sensitive to both his feelings and my own - I dunno. But, he is nightweaned pretty successfully and I am getting sleep now, so thats a positive! I don't know how I'd be surviving emotionally otherwise! Still waiting for the same company to finish their other interviews so we know more about dh getting a third interview or not.
Oh, I just finished the book a few days ago and loved it. Hopefully you can get it cheap on amazon.
And, about the hamster. The boy I watch got a chinese dwarf hamster two Christmas' ago and he doesn't bite - he's very easygoing although in general, I think he is pretty boring though. He gets nervous being out in your hand if there is a lot of noise - his heart starts racing (with kids, I think noise is a given..so?) And I sort of feel bad for him. No life. I also remember as a kid, my cousins lost MANY hamsters over the course of a few years in their house. They'd find them months later under furniture and such. So, I have to agree with Jes - a guinea pig might be better...maybe even adopt one! The petco around here told us that you cannot even buy one from their store unless you've pursued adoption first, as they are not adopted very often and end up being put down many times. They aren't as fragile as hamsters either, so Sydney might be able to enjoy it more. Like Jes said, I've heard also that they are very nice animals. I believe they need to gnaw alot or else you have to clip their teeth - they grow like fingernails. Keep us updated, its so fun getting new pets - especially with kids...they are so interested in animals at this age, yk?

I was indeed in labor when I posted last, Grace was born on 2/15. She is an easy baby (knock on wood) and very sweet. Sometimes having two kids though makes me want to just shoot myself in the head.
I'll post more later, but I'll say that Philip is hilarious and gives us a laugh every day. Plus, he keeps getting cuter! I'm hoping to get a new blog up sometime soon, for both kids.
UH OH - that's sort of how I imagine it, too. The shooting in the head part you mention. Darn. Are you tandem nursing or has Philip weaned? (Sorry I don't remember...) Well congratulations on your new babe! What a blessing. I love the name Grace. Can't wait to hear more...

I was thinking a minute ago about the hamster thing. honestly, I'd get a guinea pig before I'd get a hamster. They're sturdier, friendlier, and they bite less. plus, you can litter train them.
Love the pics of your horse, how cool for your dd to grow up around him - well, once he's accepted her!!! I read on your blog about the orange cat -
Sounds like he was a great cat to have had. That's ashame.
