I hear ya...and I'm sure mine is doing that same sighing, but he's upstairs so I can't hear him!

Our 1 year old has been standing A LOT, but no walkies yet! In other news, we have a contract on our condo! It is less then we wanted, but in this market we decided we would counter just a bit higher, and she took it. So we are walking out with less, but we think we found a house that will work for us. It is pretty cheap because it needs some work. House
Looks like a pretty great house. My favourite part is the name of the 'way'. It's very difficult to say without smiling

Cute! The frosting was the only part Ion ate and I even bothered to make his personal cake with breastmilk!

Seriously though, am I that clumsy?? :

We had a lovely birthday for romi... Made carrot cake and had a BBQ supper. Decided not to give any gifts (we have enough stuff here, and she doesn't care) so it was simple but lovely
OUCH! I hope it's better soon. Romi's day sounds really nice and cozy.

This little cutie!!!
What a fantastic doll!!!!!

I'm always jealous of everyone else's great relationships too--I even thought yours seemed dreamy. Looks can be deceiving. I love my husband so much but we do best as snuggly co-parenting best friends. It seems that when we are any more intimate, I expect a greater emotional connection and he's just not that kind of person. He's home from his walk now, time to click send...
I'll be back tomorrow with how we're doing.

Dh- yes, mine drives me absolutely batty too! We actually have a very dynamic relationship- sometimes we're at each others' throats, but I love him anyway. We're funny- I always think of the Cowboy Junkies song 'Misguided Angel' becuase it reminds me of Chad. He has some character flaws (I don't, of course) that I recognize, but I love him above them- sure they drive me nuts sometimes but it's ok, that's what a relationship is, right? I am constantly thankful for a loving husband, who has a good heart and adores our chidren, even if he's incredibly pig-headed, messy and annoying...haha....
Now that song will be in my head for a week

Queen, i couldn't get on MDC after my post and had no idea what you wanted... Sorry.
I just got 2 WCW soakers from 2 stockings ago so I'm in soaker heaven right now. 2 Luxe, 2 WCW, 2 Royal Buns. So I'm good for now. And since romi's daycare said no on cd, I'm stopping the insanity. No more. Niet. Nada. I'm selling a bunch of my pockets and simplifying.:

And Kris, really, no wool??? I love wool. No leaks in the morning ever. Lovely I put wool over pockets too. Now that it's getting warmer out, we don't wear longies as much, but soakers are still a staple here.

haha, me too.
Maybe there was a full moon or something! No, that was the week before, I remember.

We're opposite. We don't do great as the best friends kind of thing, we're more the hot and cold lovers, with a love-hate relationship of brother/sister (sorry, hope that's not creeepy, you know what I mean- sometimes we just tolerate each other). Chad's not always that communicative, and I end up being independant and having my communication etc needs met elsewehere. We're bound to each other but don't always get along, and that's ok.
Speaking of, I know he'll want me up to bed soon.

We had Eva's party tonight. It was cute! Just family, and ice cream cake. She loved it!

No problem! There are more stockings soon- so I won't give up. It's always so sad though when you don't get something you liked though!! So jealous of your stash!! (I have 2 luxe, 2 loveybums (one fleece) 2 knit that will be too small, one kiwipie wrap and one babyit'syou.) I love our wcw longies, but we need summer stuff! Also, I just love their name. I'm a sucker for 'what the wild things wear'. Those are my kids.

I'm getting pinched and stroked and grabbed EVERY single time she's nursing!! I'm getting sick of it. I feel too "grabbed" to feel like cuddling with DH.

Ari'smom -- I hope the house works out... Fingers crossed (not going to try to find the smile-y with the few minutes I have to even post)

We just tried this NO-knead (!) bread today -- it's pretty good for like 15 minutes of work...and then waiting http://youtube.com/watch?v=13Ah9ES2yTU
It's sooo easy, and tastes just like bakery bread. I wish it were healthier though, I'm going to try variations using half whole wheat flour/half white flour.

We're gearing up for Savannah's party, I've never really done a party before, so I feel like I'm forgetting stuff. We'll see how it goes -- party's for the 27th. With my immediate family and DH's immediate family we'll for sure have 21 guests. My grandparents and my cousin and his family might make it close to 30. Scary.

I wish I had more time to spend here!!! It's so supportive... but now I've got a walker (video on my blog http://rivkajean.blogspot.com/2008/0...ng-around.html ) and we've got yeast issues again, VERY bad thrush and sorta bad diaper rash. We've almost beat it... I think.

Savannah's so cute, she's such a doll...my little baby's getting big! She's still small for her age though, about 18-19 lbs. Anyhow, I'm rambling...I'll try to be back to post her birth story later this month.

So well wishes to ALL the April babies!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all (that way I don't miss anyone!)

Happy Birthday to my Valerie! It is hard to believe that she's a year old already.

that sounds great! i think zenon would have eaten ice cream cake.
we are not really best friends and not really hot/cold lovers either. we're nothing??? (just kidding...i don't think it's that bad). he does communicate but i find that we don't have a lot in common and i have to meet my best friend needs in other ways. and since i have no sex drive, we aren't really lovers either...plus he drives me nuts and kills any sex drive i have. :

I'm surprised! I gathered you guys had a pretty lovey relationship- Chad and I don't have a lot in common either. Has this just been a rough time for you?

Kris, this is the first soaker that I made and it's easy peasy and works great. It knits up quick too. And more s to you. I think having babies is so hard on a relationship. I'm not sure what dp and I have in common anymore, because some days we barely even talk, yk? I feel like we're just treading water. We had kids really early in our relationship, so I guess we're waiting till they're a bit older to get to know each other! We went from being total hot and horny, party animals to being pregnant in 8 months. I really could go on and on, but the kids want me to come and play with them

haha same here... 9mo after we got together...but we dated and then stop dating and we're just pals for a year before that. he's going through some big changes right now...involving religion and his lifestyle/etc and i'm sorta ok with it but not when he projects it on my lifestyle/etc.
post #255 of 531
speaking of dh's...mine is busy all day, then has church tonight...so i think today will be better. i already bathed the kids, we're cleaning the house and then we are going to just have fun!
post #256 of 531
Thanks Arismom!!
we love our stacker!!! it's funny b/c i just donated our melissa and doug one b/c we are getting rid of some of those toys-- zenon had no stacker! then i saw you post about stacking and thought--oh that would have been a great bday gift for zenon (no idea you had us!)
it's beautiful! thanks!

attack of the chocolate monster...(he was trying to nurse!)
happy birthday zenon!

post #257 of 531
zenon is so cute kris! I have to get some birthday pics up...

can i rant for a minute here?? *imagines everyone nodding sympathetically*

So I have a great friend with a ds 6 months younger than Finn. We play together a few times a week. She has another ds who is 8, so she has been through it all once before. She is veeeeerrrry gd, which is great, and I aspire to be as gd as I can, but today at the park I nearly lost it on her! Finn has started playing this game when it's time to go where he runs away, laughing maniacally while I get madder and madder. Anyway, finally (after he gets knocked in the head by a swing) I just pick him up and strap him in the stroller, all the while he is screaming and throwing the wildest tantrum you can imagine. So, my dear gentle friend is saying "oh Finn, do you want a cracker??" all sweet and he's screaming and I just wanna get the hell outta there, yk?? Then as we walk out she says to me "you know, sometimes when they want to go on the slide (or whatever) instead of saying no, you can say 'I know the slide is a lot of fun isn't it?'" Grrrrrrrr! I just looked at her and said, "no, sometimes he just needs to be told no. That's it. I don't have the time to always try to reason with him." Which I don't...I have two kids to think about, so life does not revolve around Finn. I mean what else can you do sometimes?? She's a great friend really and usually I love that she's really straight with me, but today, I'd had it!
Sorry about that, but I had to get it off my chest. I guess I should put it in the gd forum, but I'm scared!:
post #258 of 531
Oh heck, now that I'm here I can't remember what I had to say - ugh, I'm tired already.

Scarlet was screaming yesterday from teeth, I wish the new ones would break through already! Consequently, it took her forever to go to sleep last night, and of course, awake at 7am. However, dh is out this morning, so I'm able to clean the house and air it out a bit - get this sickies out.

Well, my story with dh is that we were together for several years before we finally settled down and kids definitely take their toll on the relationship - I'm just so tied up with them all the time. But he has also been stressed about work and he's a worrier anyway, so I think he's the one without any sex drive. I'm hoping that he'll feel better with not smoking and have a bit more stamina .

Cute pics, kris! I have a couple of woolies and do like them. But I need some lanolin soap!

Happy Birthday, Valerie!

Am I the only one that didn't have a little party for my one year old? : She did have some cake from dh's birthday (no party for him either) and we did sing her "Happy Birthday" at Max's request, but that was about it, I was tired from traveling.

I just saw she is stocking a couple of times this week and next. I need to stalk her now. I need at least one more pair of shorties for Desmond for summer. We have a pair of her longies and they are nice. So hopefully I'll be able to get something during one of the stockings. It looks like my Sweet Tea Soakers are going to take longer then expected, so I may end up having them made for an infant (not that we are expecting, but we likely will be before too long).

I love wool, it is great. I'm actually planning to go to the Sheep and Wool Festival to get some so I can have custom shorties or longies made. Wool is just so nice, Desmond tends to wear his 3 pairs of longies out and about all winter long since it was so easy to throw them on over a diaper and they are cute and don't need to be swapped out often.

Happy Birthday Valerie!



Desmond went to bed at 10:30 last night! He slept till 2am and then again till 6am, which was decent. He has a big red spot on his thigh from his DTaP, poor baby, but it is some what better today. He was really fussy yesterday and doesn't seem to be much better today. This is why I like to wait a couple of months between shots and only do them one or two at a time. I hate having a miserable baby.

As for DH stuff, DH and I get along really well, and he rarely gets on my nerves. He is just such a help and great guy.

we didn't really have a party...just our "vt family" over for lunch.
how funny--i can't imagine life with a dh that wasn't trying to get a piece all the time (is there a dreamy smiley)...
