subbing... i'm still at my mom's. dh informs me that today our new double stroller was delivered. Whee... I'm so excited. It's a Phil & Ted's e3... expensive but totally necessary for me since we don't have a car and I take dd (and soon ds) everywhere on public transport. If you haven't seen it, the P&T is pretty much the only double stroller that you can get on a bus relatively easily.

For my birthday my mom helped me pay for tricking the stroller out a little. I've got seat pads and saddle bags being made with this pattern, with another less crazy fabric on the other side, reversable.

Whee! Of course I plan on wearing ds as much as I can as long as I can... but for longer treks the double stroller is totally necessary...

S-A: E was conceived at a conference. Claire was conceived in Paris. Good luck in your 2ww.

I'm home on a snow day. Blizzard conditions all day. They aren't plowing the streets because there is too much wind.

: @ bama.

I've got a little boy with a 102* fever...woke up at 5 to nurse and I noticed that annoying gropy hands were HOT HOT HOT. Poor bug.
It's pouring rain & nasty slushy, and I have loads of work to do, so good excuse to sit here on the couch nursing/holding him and plowing through some work.

i read that and was like "o?" "o?" hmm.."oh!" hahaha!
good luck SA! I think we are on the same cycle- the race is on. if you get a baby first you at least have to let me come and hold it!

too bad that you couldn't enjoy your time away a little more- i bet it is great to be home.

emmy- hope he feels better soon. poor cully.

we just got back from the childrens museam and then puddle jumping. and e went down some stairs with just me holding onto her hood lightly. she is terrible with stairs and those leading to our house are old steep wooden so i don't let her practice much. she even did it in her big boots.
not so cute- she has started grabing handfulls of cat hair! oh my-oh- it pains me to see it. even gus is getting tired of her. she is usually so gentle- i hope that doesn't get lost.

davina- too funny with the "let go." e is amazing me in the last few days too- some with words and some with something like connciosnes- she just seems older.

bama- i think i had the closest weight guess- what do i get???
mcs

selena- cool fabric! how much longer?

two girls and another on the way in feburary!

MCS.. I think Davina got the weight exactly.. I actually thought she cheated b /c she answered immediately and got the weight exact.

And I was wrong about his previous weight..it was 22 lb 7 oz...NOT 11 oz...so its actually a gain of 3 lbs and 14 lbs in 8 weeks!!!! ALMOST 4 LBS!: : That is insanity. No wonder his clothes dont fit!

and yes, congrats on your 2 o's....SA

It pays to be a girl and pg. DH is trying to get the driveway cleared. It isn't too bad except now the plows have gone by. They left a pile of snow that is taller than the snowblower intake. No kidding, waist deep. This could be a while.

Oh well, the chili is on the stove. The girls are going to help me make buttermilk biscuits. I think DH deserves a hot bath or a massage when he gets in.

Mclisa-- Sounds like a wonderful family day at home! Sometimes I love being socked in with snow for how much it forces us to hang out with eachother and puts all other plans on hold.

Davina--it's a good thing we have somebody around here who can do math, I missed that one

Mcs-- we went to the Children's Museum today too! It was free day, so it was packed, but ds loves riding the bus there and back anyways, so we had fun.

We used a moving van and got the rest of our furniture from our house we sold, we've been bare bones'in it here for a while, so it's really nice to have some chairs and a changing table and bookshelves again!

Dh and I got to go on a spontaneous date last night, with a sitter and everything! It was house paper signing day, plus his one year anniversary as a firefighter with his new job (and so he's no longer in his probationary year) so we celebrated! We went to my favorite Cajun restaurant and I'm still eating leftover catfish and crayfish and oysters and alligator

How did you know I was on the floor?!

SA WHOA!! CONGRATS! I was dying when I read that!

PAT I'm glad you have your furniture when we got our house we had a futon! Oh and Three kitchen tables which is a little over the top! But there was still PLENTY of room!

Selena-OMG I love that stroller! I wanted something better than the one I got but my mom bought ours as a surprise! It was lovely for as long as I needed it and I still have it for daycare babes. I wear Nolan a lot and I have a stroller in the truck for a roadside issue! It would really stink to carry a babe for long distance!

Anne Oh poor spud! I hate when my kids are sick and I blame it on teeth and its not teeth! Poor thing! Poor you too! Take care of your self! But you sound like your doing fabulous!

MClisa I always feel bad for DH but I'm not PG I just refuse to shovel I do EVERYTHING else! Even the trash! Give a girl a break!

Well the snow wasn't so bad here or maybe it was the four wheel drive truck! Its NICE!!! Tomorrow we are going to check out a pathfinder for me! We are trying to trade even. Our car is booking for more than the pathfinder so we are hoping! I assume they will still try to finagle some cash out of us! Before I knew the trade in book they tried to get me to give them our car for 4300.00! Then they wanted me to pay them another 2200.00 When I told them I know that my cars worth more they started working with us a little more!

Well I have to get going now! DH is trying to sleep and I have the extra living room light on! Have a nice night ladies!

Good morning everyone!

I got to sleep in! That is a good Saturday. Now everyone is up but DH who is not a morning person.

Claire is tells us when she has a poopy diaper especially when she wakes up with one. That must mean she is getting closer to being potty trained.

I washed my tub of baby clothes yesterday. I can't believe how small the sleepers are! I even have them folded and put away in a drawer in our bedroom. Now we just need to find the bassinet part to the pack and play and we should be set. I'm going to use that next to the bed instead of a co-sleeper since it is the same idea.

When DH and I first moved into our apartment our only furniture were 2 plastic lawn chairs. We still have them. The rest came a few days later.

Grace: so does alligator taste "just like chicken?"

bama: we started giving Claire the MCT oil today. Good news, she didn't get itchy. Bad news, she only drank part of the bottle. Just debating the best way to get it in her. I just wanted to say thanks for the tip.
