Grrr, typical, I just wrote a long post and we have that rolling ball type of mouse that gets sticky easily? so of course in my ultimate wisdom I turned it over to wipe it off and lost my post! Oh how that irritates me!
Sara - Oh, honey, I'm with you - I have no idea how they're growing so fast! Why cant they just stay this little for longer? How are you handling twins and being back at school? You must be running nonstop all the time. How are those cuties doing? - xoxo
Natasha - Wow, married one year already? jeez, where does the time go? I loved the pictures you posted, you have a beautiful family! As for your puppy, I think Gi is right. Even if you just have a few professional training sessions it should help alot since they'll teach you how to respond to behaviors that arent acceptable. Some dogs are just more willful than others, but with the proper training he will get whats expected of him and you'll all be happier then. How is mommyhood going? - xoxo
Angela - Oh, honey I'm sorry to hear that your day care center is giving you a hard time, I mean sometimes schedules change, run late and you shouldnt have to feel like you're interruppting their day. I hope that it gets settled since both you & Miss Gabriella like it there. Aw, speaking of Gabriella, her picture on FB in her little dress? She is such a cutie pie! Love it! xoxo
Babyluv- I'm with you girl, I've been in Spring cleaning mode also, unfortunately the weather isnt anything but cold & damp here though, I know the warm weather is coming, i just wish it would hurry up! It sounds like Amelia & Juliette are doing great and Yay for sleeping all night for mommy! We love them so much, but I'd love you more after a full nights sleep, right? lol. - xoxo
Gi - Aw, I cant believe the priest forgot Kayla's christening, thankfully he remembered before it had to be reschedules though! What a disaster that would have been! Well, Kayla beat Ryan, we still havent booked a date for his. We were waiting for better weather, but he's 4.5 months already so it needs to be done soon. jeez how does time pass so fast these days? Aw you have to post a picture of her in her little two piece bathing suit - she must be adorable!
- xoxo Go enjoy your glass of vino! Hi to your Mam- xoxo
Steph - How are you holding up twin mama? You poor thing, I wish we didnt live so far away, it must feel like you never get a moment to yourself. I cant believe that Ethan is ready to start crawling already - you arent kidding when you say he likes to go fast! At the rate he's been going he's likely to be walking by 8-10 months, do you think? Aw, yeah, isnt it appalling about the P17 progesterone shot? I cannot fathom how 1 drug company can have the only rights to make something as important as to help prevent preterm labor? And its absolutely disgusting that they are allowed to price gouge like that! It doesnt affect the regular PIO that most ivf patients take, but its a particular compound thats used with patients who are predisposed to PTL. and they have to nerve to lie and say that they will "help" out patients that cant afford to buy it - yeah, sure they will, after raising their price from $15 up to $1500!!??? yeah, I believe they "care" about money only. I dont see how things like this arent illegal? sigh. sorry to rant, but this topic is definitely under my skin and I really feel badly for anyone affected by it, its such a shame. Hang in there honey, we all know that you're our version of Superwoman but even SuperWoman needs a break too sometimes right? Much love- xoxoxo
PA - Whoa, you've had waaay too much going on around you for the first month home with the beautiful Miss Addison. And right at the time when you walk around like a zombie totally sleep deprived too. I'm sorry honey, you have to try and get rest whenever you can, ok? Holy moley! that cutie pie is 12lbs already?! Wow! Ryan was 12lbs at his 2 month appt. You have a strong healthy growing girl there! They all grow at their own pace, but its fun to see the differences between all our babies too, isnt it? Whew for your MIL going home after stressing you like that! Sometimes I wish that either one of us had some family, but you cant miss what you never had and when I hear how uncomfy some visits are? well then I think that maybe its fine and besides friends become family anyway. How is she liking the mamaroo? Ryan is about to outgrow his swing and boy was that a lifesaver when he was first home to about 12 weeks! Now its all about the jumpy chair, though I'd like to pich up something else to add the the baby "circuit" haha.Haha, now that Ryan is in size 3 pampers it looks like he has a tooshie, but nope theres no tooshie to speak of yet. Try to get some rest mama, I know its hard to deal with your mom's things too, but it sounds like it worked out for the best, she'll be well looked after and safe and thats a huge relief for you. - xoxo
AFM - Nothing is new really. I'm just lost in Mommyland and I love every minute of it. Ryan is doing great and finally is enjoying solids. Well, ok, so he still doesnt like bananas, but sweet potatoes, peaches and oatmeal seem to be a big hit. Odd, I dont care too much for thwe taste of bananas either. He does the same as PA's DD with the cutie pie stretches and then finally the open eyes and smiles all around. I'm not a morning person, but seeing his smiles first thing when he wakes up sure does change that I tell you. Now for the rest of the day he still just takes cat naps until his eyelids look purple from him being so tired but refusing to just give in and take a nap already.Its like he thinks he's going to miss someting if he sleeps. So when it looks like he's wearing purple eyeshadow,I know its overdue, lol. He is still a drooling factory, all day everyday I think teething cant be too far off for him to be running like a faucet all day. So Umm, from what I've heard about them being a crankypants for teething I cant say that I'm looking forward to it. His new game is to see how many times I can bend over in a day, fun yes? he wants his toys and then throws them down and looks down at them until I get them back for him, funny at first, but after 50 times or so? umm, not so much. I'm so lucky to have a happy "easy" baby since he really doesnt cry often, he smile most of the time. Well, now he's discovered screaming, like this high pitched squealing sound? too funny! I usually ask him if he's practicing to be an opera singer and he smiles and laughs more. His sense of comedic timing is still dead on, sometimes I wonder if he knows exactly what I'm saying to him? It sure seems it sometimes. So i'll be 41 next week - ugh. But since time isnt on my side anymore I feel the need to not wait too long to try for a sibling. Yes, I am crazy, I know. So if all goes well i'll have a 1.5 year old and a newborn? Whew! i'll surely be kept on my toes, yes? Strangely, this doesnt freak me out - I cant wait actually. I'd like to get an RE appt for April and if my RE's schedule lines up with my AF, then maybe I could transfer around May? Eeeeek, this is too exciting!! Of course it all depends on how booked my RE is and how long he'll want to suppress me, and I know its early ladies but I'm all over this! i'm still holding back from posting on the IVF cycling threads though, i think its too soon yet, and lets face the fact that lately I suck as a cylce buddy - but Mister Ryan is soooo cute, how can I not be sucked into babyland 24/7? We all came so far to get here and you all mean alot to me, I never would have made it through 7 attempts without you girls and this forum - much love to you all - xoxoxoxo
