Congrats PiePie!!! Exciting that you about to be a HOME OWNER!!!

I LOVE LOVE the pics.... It's way past my bedtime here otherwise I'd post one of Aidan.

Love the bathtime one of Benjamin... really enjoyed finally finding out what baby Z's name really is! Zora is very, very nice... might put it on my list if you don't mind another one across the world somewhere?
We need to see a new one for Isabella!!
Tycho is soooo cute in that hat! And Jocelyn I confess I snooped through all the months!! I'm glad to see that by one I can expect to see real hair on Aidan instead of this fuzz he's got going on.
Oh and Emily if you want I will post a pic of our cords... it is a cord bonanza in this house with all our computer kak and Jan's toys.
Lane Ada's got beautiful eyes!

I will post more tomorrow and maybe a pic of Aidan these days since we haven't updated our gallery in ages.

DH is hot - seriously. I swear people must wonder how on earth we ended up together. Thanks for reminding me - I get used to seeing him every day! You should see his brother and sister, too! They are a disgustingly attractive family.

I know - I'm a bad momma!!! We are AWFUL about pictures in general. I'll take some. I'm also awful about uploading them anywhere... My goal was to do at least weekly, and now it's more like monthly. :

Pie, Congrats on the coop!!!!
Sorry about the daycare situation.

I'm loving everyone's pics so much! The babies are too cute. I wanna play too
Here are a few recent ones:
crawling at the playground
w/ daddy at the playground
egg on her face
smiling
nakey time

Still sick today - we actually took her to the doctor this morning. But he told me what I figured he would, that it's probably just a virus like Roseola (there's a slim chance it could be a UTI), and it'll get better with time. And she did seem better this afternoon. I'm hoping she sleeps tonight. I've been up a lot more than usual with her - as I'd expect to be when she's sick - and that combined with a crazy workload doing some election coverage has me pretty worn out. But, we just had a great bath together, she's fast asleep, and I'm looking forward to a quiet evening (solo since DH is in his play) eating chili, watching Lost, and going to bed early (unless Lost keeps me up...).

This is from August, I think. I don't have anything more recent in photobucket right now.

ah yes intesestng i forgot to post abt the job search. can we say freud? nothing yet. had weird interview on monday-- they wre appalled that i would consider a position so "beneath" me -- made me feel like it was carer suicide -- but i am not psyched abt the administrative bs that comes with neing management, and -- most iportant -- i want part-time and to not take work home so i can really be present with dd. why is that seen as so bad?

just interviewed another nanny who won't work. she refuses to babywear and she doesn't like cosleepers. to me the advantage of a nanny or au pair is that you get them to hold the baby more (including in their lap while sleeping) -- if babe is going to spend time in a stroller while on walks and a crib while sleeping, why not do a daycare ctr? gr.

Okay, so I'm a computer idiot and can't make the colors and icons copy... I don't want to re-do the whole thing - it's so pretty! Help?

Okay, back to continue playing with this.

Pie - sorry about the nanny. That sucks. Our new p/t one started this morning. EEK!!! She seems really great, but still... First person NOT family or close friend that's taken care of Isabella!

that is SO strange to me! first of all, she "doesn't like cosleepers"? so if we lined 20 kids up she'd be able to pick them out?? and she refuses to babywear? i'm with you - i would think a nanny would spend more time doing just that kind of thing.

Mama to DS (12/11/07) and partner to DH (08/08). Expecting #2 late November 2011!

I wonder if it interferes with her TV watching? I find that really suspect, too. Our new nanny is planning to wear her daughter in the Ergo on her back and Isabella on her front in the Moby...
