SO many vivid, bizarre dreams. They're exhausting.

I think you could still use Lucius for another boy - my husband's first name is his older brother's middle name. And I love Felicity, and think that Fae would actually be a sweet nickname for it. ...

I'm still nursing my 2yo. Latching on was terribly painful for awhile, but seems to be getting better. I really don't want to tandem nurse, so I'm hoping he'll wean himself soon.

I've been going to the gym at work about 2-3 times a week - brisk walking and mild weights. It feels good to stay active (and get a break from my desk).
