Happy April all. I am not sure who is first, but I know Desmond is close to first (I think some one has an April 3rd Birthday), his is on Saturday.

I still can't believe he is almost 1. It is amazing how fast the year passed.

Oh and he woke once last night, so posting about the two long nights cursed me! Oh well.

And wow I just noticed I got a DDDDC cool, yay Monty Python!

Hard to believe it has already been almost a year. My baby has been replaced with this beautiful little creature who can walk and talk, as well as give me hugs and kisses

I love her more and more every day

Caitlyn will be 1, April 22

Ronan's got three more weeks (21 April).

He's had a nasty cold for the last couple days. I think he's significantly better today. I hope he is. We need eggs and food for dinner, so I have to go shopping after his nap!

Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.

you had me! although, it's not time yet remember

I'll close in the swap chain today and we should get our things out soonish !

Ion and I just had a nice adventure to the farmer's market in the super wind. It was fun but I wish I'd brought a stroller to push the groceries home in.

Have a safe trip home MaxiMom and krismarie!

Happy April, everyone... I can't believe that my last baby is almost one already! This year has been a blur.

Happy birthday to all the April 2007 babies!

I made out Sophia (and E's) birthday invites. I need to get them in the mail tomorrow so I will need to address them tonight.

Then I need to decide how lazy I'm being for the menu.

Very nice job Finn's mama!

Well, our group made it a year (for the most part) without anyone pg. My last group on mothering didn't do that.

I'm not sure if anyone had an April Fool's baby, but Abby turns 1 in EXACTLY 12 hours!

And it actually was 365 days ago that she was born. I'm happy and sad...

Anika, I was shocked for a second!!!

And for our big announcement...


WE'VE GOT A TOOTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:

Romi had weird poopy diapers and was slept worse than ever on sunday night. Monday morning we checked and felt something sharp in her mouth. Yep, a tooth is finally poking out

On a sadder note, she went to daycare yesterday. Ok, it was for an hour and I was there with her the whole time, but still. I start work on the 14th so I'm gently letting her get used to the new environment. But I hated every minute of it I felt out of place, she was fine of course. But she'll be the youngest in the group by 3 months, so it'll be hard for her to really follow the activities. And they don't cloth diaper. Which sucks cause I had to shell out 134$ for 2 cases of Seventh Generation diapers. Which won't even last a month. :
I just felt bad being there. I'm not gonna go today or tomorrow (I'll tell them she's feeling under the weather) and I'll go again friday. I wish I could stay home another year.

Hi Mamas! I'm back from our trip and finally feeling a bit more rested. It was a long trip with two babes, but they did great on the planes. We had a great visit with the family and it was SO wonderful meeting up with hanno and krismarie. I was crying when I left, it was so nice. Wish we could have spent more time with them. Scarlet LOVED Ion - kept trying to hug him when we first got there. Krismarie - hope your trip home today goes well.

finn'smama - we missed you, and you had me, too!

Scarlet is getting more teeth and is now pointing at things she wants - food, my wine She'll be 1 on Friday. Dh's birthday is today and I remember this time last year knowing the babe was coming soon and not wanting to tell dh 'cause I didn't want him to freak out on his b'day.

I have no plans for a party, but may try to get something together later in the month - my birthday is on the 20th. 4:20 - haha.

Also, I need to get my swap package together - I only have a couple of things so far, but hope to get it done within the next week.

: babes!

Maximom- So glad you made it home and the little ones did well. Yesterday I spent a half hour looking for a bunch of missing blocks and I asked Ion where they were. He kept going in the tent and laughing at me until I discovered that the boys hid them in the blankets. I started crying right there! I feel like our 'extended family' is real
Happy birthday MaxiDad!!

Sophia got up during the night for a bottle last night. She hadn't done that for weeks. She is starting to do better with solids. I'm trying to decide when to be done pumping. My supply is slowly dwindling. I'm home alone with the girls this weekend so I know it will be a challenge to find time.

She's signing and talking sooooo much, it's crazy. She took a few steps on her own finally, too. But I think she's destined to be a nerd like her parents-- she's way more verbal than physical .

I can't believe it'll be a year--- so fast and yet what was life before her? ya know?

Woo-hoo!!! I've got a fiber partner!! And Liam and Kaylo will have fun together. They could talk cows and stuff. Although Liam will ask me why Kaylo speaks funny and be all confused.

Of course I'll be renting a car, cause I'm not taking the bus with 2 kiddos! So maybe I'd drive further for diapers How sweet of you to offer!!! Sometimes I seriously think I should rent a mailbox on the border just to get stuff for cheaper. Oh well.
