Glad to know we're not the only ones with a tantrum-y baby
As for the weight, well, I'm small boobed. The exercises are easy and I thought they'd never work, but man my tummy is sore today!!!

Good! No pain, no gain! (or loss, in your case )

I posted a bunch of pictures, though I do have videos to get up still. They are all up on my blog.


I have a tantrumer as well. He screams if we take him away from what he is doing, even if what he is doing is dangerous/something he shouldn't be. He doesn't like being thwarted.

Evangeline likes to throw little fits too...whenever she doesn't get what she wants. It's kind of cute and annoying...

I'm actually the skinniest I've been in a long time- we don't have a scale, but I weigh myself occaisionally when I come across one, mostly out of curiosity. Last I checked I was 122lbs-I'm nearly 5' 8". I'm surprised to hear others keep their boob weight though- when I've nursed this long I'm nearly flat- at least until I become pregnant again. So far I haven't noticed any increase though.

Doudat glad to hear that the excercises are working! What are they like? swimming is good for your tummy too...lots of muscles used. I was just starting to do some crunches because I wanted to tone up my tummy so I can keep it more firm, I find I get used to having the muscles relaxed. I think babywearing is bad for that, it encourages a poor posture. But now I should stop, right? Oh well.

Cute pics! Desmond seems bigger and older- he's so cute! I don't see any pics of you though- you must be always behind the camera!

There was one of me, but my hair was so horrible, I made an executive decision and didn't use it, it is my blog after all . I think I am in a few of the videos that I still need to get up, though I think I'm in the 4 minute one, not the 30 second ones, so they may not end up on my blog either.

He's doing okay. Having him around has been both a help and a hindrance. I think he's having a hard time being a person and not just a worker bee. Thank you for asking. I sometimes feel like now would be a good time to just move back to Canada, but that would make me the worker bee (it would be his turn to not be able to legally work) and I don't know about that... After 6 years I still don't feel in place in the US.

Oh the big news is we bought Desmond his own bed. It should arrive on Monday. We just bought the mattress and box spring and figure we'll put it on the floor without the box spring for now. It is going to be weird having a real bed for him, but I am hoping it helps him sleep longer at night before waking up, he is still welcome in our bed whenever, but it would be kind of nice to have it to the two (well three with the dog) of us every once in awhile. It felt so weird buying him his own bed, like he is all grown up. Of course he will probably end up in our bed every night or one of us will end up in there with him, but still.
I recently asked Kam if we could get a toddler bed to put next to ours and he vetoed it. He's not ready to have Ion on just the other side of me Enjoy your alone time!
We have a ton of blackberries in our yard and Ion carefully picks and gobbles them. The black poop sure freaked me out the first time.

Oh I hope the exercises work and you don't need surgery. I think your family's had enough hospital things.

He's so stinking cute. I love the ones with your grandparents.

From what pictures I've seen your look just perfectly proportioned and naturally slender. I'm 5' 8" as well and 120lbs was just too small for me and I looked weird and didn't feel good. Although, I wasn't eating very nutritious food at that time of my life.

I hope your pregnancy keeps up being easy I just finished a beer and getting all sentimental crying with : for you!

I've spent the day sanding the floor with a drum sander. My ears are ringing and my eyes are vibrating but this place is looking less dreary already.

So my news today! I'm due March 10th, I just took a pregnancy test, I was actually expecting a negative this month, because it really feels like AF is going to start any minute, I was really expecting her this morning rather then a positive. It still hasn't really sunk in yet, especially since it still feels like AF is about to start.

In additional news, my OB/GYN practice does VBAC! So I am going to hopefully try for a VBAC, I would love to home birth this time, but DH won't agree (even with the hospital less then 5 minutes from the house). I am happy though that I have a chance of VBAC. I need to call my OB/GYN office to make an appointment, but I'm thinking of waiting a week or two, since they won't see me till 8 weeks anyways.

In other news Desmond's bed arrives in an hour or less, we cleared out a lot of his new room this weekend, but we have a bunch more to do still, that's okay we really don't expect him to sleep there anytime soon.

Ronan has declared that he will not sleep. I keep telling him, "let's pretend this is Brooklyn and SLEEP, ALREADY!"


Saturday, he wouldn't sleep until 11:30pm. Last night, he passed out in my arms at 9pm, but he'd refused a nap all day. Today? Lovely two hour lap nap and now . . . no sleep.

He's currently neatly piling the contents of DH's bedside stand . . . in the trash can. And he's so freakin' tired and cranky. He's currently upset at the trash can--it's not fulfilling his expectations.
