This morning my beautiful boy woke us not by jumping on our heads or poking at our eyes, but by gently kissing us complete with the smacking sound, which he figured out yesterday My heart is so full!

I love the sweet kisses! Whenever Scarlet hits me or does something she's not supposed to (knowingly!), she'll give me kisses. The sweetest are the sibling kisses. Btw, when we were back visiting you, Max predicted your next babe. He asked if you had only one baby, then said, "I think she'll have a girl next." With Kamrin home for now, maybe it's time to jump on the baby wagon. :

So cute.


Desmond is being an imp, he has started stealing my glasses, he normally only takes DH's. He snuggles up and gives you a big hug, and while you are distracted with the cuteness he snags the glasses.

Thanks everyone for the baby congrats. I tested again today, since I have some extra tests and there is no point in wasting them and it is still positive, so it is starting to feel more real, with two positives on two different tests.

Today is DH's birthday he turns 31 today. We aren't doing anything overly special though maybe I'll make him brownies or a cake if I get motivated after naptime. He is home tomorrow which is nice, he has an eye doctor appointment and the imp has his 15 month well baby.

CONGRATS TABRIZIA!!! : (seems like the smiley of choice around here! ) I'm so happy that you can have a VBAC...I think it's the worst when mama's have to search for VBAC friendly practices. I'm so happy for you!!

When brother and sister (in our case ) kiss each other - just melts me.

Yesterday I dislocated my knee cap. Again. I'm so fed up with this (I'm hyperlax so this happens quite frequently)!! It's gorgeous outside and the kiddos are home (Canada Day) and I'm stuck with my leg elevated with an icepack.

My body is getting old :

My MIL was here and all she says is: that's funny cause Nico never threw a tantrum in his life! I swear, it's uncanny I know, but not once did he ever throw a fit.
or : Does Liam let you sleep in the morning? Cause Nico used to wake up and amuse himself till we woke up when he was Liam's age... He'd watch television or eat a snack. (at 3.5yrs old??!!)

She drives me bonkers.

I seemed to have lost the ability to multiquote. My brain has reached the same level as my body.

I've been watching stuff on http://www.surfthechannel.com all day. You can watch tv shows on the net, it's quite entertaining when stuck on the sofa.

When my MIL saw the acrobatic way that Ion nurses she said "My children never did that. They just say still and nursed calmly, under a drape.". Or when Ion was tiny and had a nursing blister she said "My children never had that, I didn't nurse them anywhere near as often."

Although when she told me Kamrin walked at 8 months, I laughed because I was sure she was exaggerating. Until it happened to me.

Wow! Congrats to all the pregnant mamas! That's so exciting to have a whole new batch of babies on the way (already!).

Chloe keeps going through these killer (not)sleeping phases. Last night she woke up around 1:30 and we were up until almost 4:30 before she fell asleep again. Then around 5:00 she gagged and did a small puke in her crib, which is attached to our bed... I was so tired and not in the mood to clean that up at that time of day. She'll probably do the same waking and playing thing for a few days and then we'll go back to more restful nights. I hope so, at least!

I feel lucky I don't deal with my MIL at all - dh doesn't either.

I'm multiquoting you today, doudat! Hope you're feeling better soon and I'll be checking out the link you posted.

Since my dog came back home, Abby has almost mastered dog. She understands a lot. Her favorite "jobs" are getting a diaper and laying down on it and getting papers from the printer and bringing them to the printee:

I love it when Desmond says Dog or Doggie! Which is probably a good thing since he says it a lot. It is just so cute, especially when he then goes over to hug the doggie, who then runs away from the toddler!

When I was sick in April I watched them back to back. America's, Australia's and Britain's. How sick am I??

Romi can say mama for practically everything. And hi. That's about it, i don't really recognize her other sounds. But she can really follow direction and understands a lot!


Hey! Who tagged me? How sweet!!!!! Thanks mama :
That just made my day!!

See? You need to come back to Canada!! It's warm here and the food is tasty :

Plus it's much easier for Kamrin to get a work permit here than you in the US, is it not? I see them all the time at work, people with permits and they tell me it was really easy.
