Sorry I haven't posted much, life has just been plain old busy!
I finished my semester this past Thursday, I now have my Master's degree! (well, as soon as it comes in the mail in a couple of months, but I am still celebrating!) I finally get a break for a long while. I might go back someday, for my sixth year degree or maybe even a phd someday, but for now, I am done! I will take my cross endorsement exam for middle school math sometime this upcoming semester, just need to get a book and start cramming.
Ella is all over the place. It is so hard to keep up with her. She is still not talking much. Well, let me rephrase that, she talks ALL the time, but it's all jibber jabber, no words really except mama and dada, just hoping her words come soon, I know this is delayed for a girl. At her 15 month appt, the dr said at 18 months he would expect a dozen words or so, if not, we might get referred to a speech pathologist. She is still a skinny minnie too, at 15 mo, she was still only 19 lbs 3 oz...only 1 lb more than my largest cat! I am finding it hard with clothes, most of the stuff that fits her is still 12 months, and 18 months is huge on her.
I am excited that Christmas is this week. I know Ella still doesn't understand, but she will have fun with the paper and boxes, and hopefully the toys too. I am looking forward to dh being off as of today, so we can clean and organize this house. I just have not had time with school and I started tutoring again. I still think about ivf and my next try all the time, but I just can't dwell on it. I need to worry about my bills and the little miracle I already have, and know that someday we will get to try again.
I am so happy everyone here who is pregnant is progressing nicely. It is so awesome that siblings are on the way!
Corny- I read your blog this morning (thanks for sharing mellie) and I am praying for you and your baby. I will check for updates.
So lots of running around this week, visiting people, so not sure I will post again, but I just wanted to wish everyone a happy holiday. I will try and get on our photobucket and add some pics, I have so many new ones! I haven't posted on there in forever, I really use facebook most for pictures now. I know I have asked, but anyone on facebook? If not, you should be, so we can all stay in touch there! I am facebook friends with about 6 people from these boards and it is soooo awesome to put faces to the screen names.
Ok, talk to you all soon
