I don't think they're actually words but they are often very well timed.

(did i mention my bf drove 1.5 just to get to my house to make this trip and now she is driving home

Kitties won't sleep in our room because of all the wiggling and crying. The mucous is making him vomit. And he's still covered in bites. Ugh.
I'm pretty proud that I brought him to the doctor twice on my own by foot/cab/bus. Kam couldn't get off work.

Here are words that people who aren't me say Ion can say:
this
that
fish
kitty
cat
Gaea
Klaus
yes/yeah
Beka
bye
dad/dadad/dadadaddy

his new thing is taking us by the hand and taking us where he wants us to go, mostly outside
Hope you both feel better soon!

Thanks, gals. My five strawberry plants from two years ago have taken over! They are probably loving all this rain we're having - too bad I'm not.

I played hookie from work today and went to look at electric bikes I've been doing some freelance translating on the side and saving that money cause I really want one and they're about 1200$ (I want one that folds). I'm gonna send dh to try them out before buying, but how cool would it be to ride to work instead of taking the metro??
This is the one I want
Cool bike! Nursing helps, even if only for comfort.

Here's a pic of Scarlet in with the oregano and strawberries. And just another cute one.

Oh yeah, glad it worked!!!

Abby felt better this am, but we were up for a lot of the night :

Her fever is now going up and down between 99 and 101, but I can tell she is feeling a bit better. It's so hot outside we are doomed to stay in today.

She just climbed in the baby swing by herself, so it seems she wanted to swing! she's munching on breakfast (Gorilla Munch) and drinking water now.

Well, we're back to rain, rain, rain. We had a great week with sunshine and I was going gangbusters on building my patio and garden, then just rain and cool. Good for strawberries and everything else green around here, but I just want some sun so I can get to work!

Sad morning - some critter got into our turkey pen and killed/ate 7 of them!!!! What a mess. We'll be setting a raccoon trap tonight. Dh is off to the feed store to pick up some more turkeys.

Scarlet's new favorite thing is putting Max's Bob the Builder tool belt and hat and walking around with a screwdriver or hammer, then sings "ba, ba, ba" - too funny!

Abby just spied a clean dipe on the desk and brought it to me. I laid it down and put her on top and she just smiled at me as I changed her. A big change from the crying I usually get! I'm going to lave dipes out more often

How cute! Hope she's still on the road to recovery, and feeling better.

I found the comp info, but after talking to dh, he said ours was just a rod that had to be replaced, so I don't think it would be any cheaper. Sorry to get your hopes up!

Ok gardening mamas, help me!!

There are these black winged tiny bugs laying eggs on some of my plants. Black eggs. And I have something else, unknown bug, that laid white eggs on my flower buds. What do I do to kill the buggers?? I'm getting seriously annoyed. Everytime I see ants on my plants, I follow them and sure enough, something laid eggs somewhere... I read the ants protect the bugs and lick off their sugar or something, I want them GONE!!!

Thanks for checking! I think we will need to bite the bullet and try to fix it - I
can't get a new computer until Xmas...

ladybugs and green lacewings kill aphids. Also, a mild soap and water mixture will help, but it can damage your plants. I don't know enough to answer well - try the digging in the dirt forum?

hmmm...i've never dealt with black eggs... usually we squish eggs to deal with them... (did i say we, i meant dh ) i'd check with diggin in the dirt forum too... soap usually doesn't hurt plants and does deter bugs... but you have to keep applying it. not all bugs that lay eggs on your plants will hurt them though.

Eeeeeeeew!!! I can't even stand to hold the plant to look closer, these things gross me out, I'm such a city gal

What a great weekend we had, HOT and sunny We took out the wadding pool and let the kids play, romi had a blast! Liam was a terror with the hose, but besides a few (ok, many) mishaps, tears, booboo's, fighting over toys, we had a great time.

We bought a bike trailer on special at ToysrUs and Nico took Liam out for a ride. I thought he wouldn't even want to get in but turns out he loved it and didn't want to get out! He didn't even complain about wearing his bke helmet!!

What is going on?? We were all the way on page 3!

We have been really busy here lately, with work or just being outside. Arlo is walking like a champ and really trying to talk too. His favourite toy is any kind of ball. He LOVES to play ball...It's very cute. I wish I could upload some pics, but you'll have to wait until I get my new computer. Then I can also show you pics of my new haircut!

We have no power and haven't since Saturday night! There were some scary storms. I'm at a cafe
post #99 of 287
Ronan slept in til 9:30 today and then fought a nap until 4:40 this afternoon. Normally, he'd have been ready about 4-5 hours after waking.

Anyhow, he's still asleep. Two hours is great for a nap. If I don't wake him soon, he might be up til midnight. That's okay, but he might also decide to get up at 7am tomorrow and that's just not gonna work.

So, do I wake him up and risk having a cranky "Hey, I was having a good dream!" baby --or--do I sit here and keep reading thread upon thread on MDC? I'm all cozy in our bed next to him, AC and ceiling fan awhirr.
