Hey everyone! OMG, I have totally fallen off of these boards, and don't have a lot of time to catch up, but I will be back so to do so, I promise!
Gecko- Congrats! And he shares my birthday, how exciting!
Katie- Good luck on your FET! I am sending lots of babydust!
Ella is doing great, I can not believe she is almost 2! Planning her 2nd b-day bash in in full effect! I am looking for a teaching job for the fall. I think it's about time to go back. We need a bigger house, and if we ever want to try ivf again, we either need new insurance or more money to pay out of pocket. Although I am enjoying all my time at home, this is the right thing to do for my family.
We had birth-3 out to our house for an evaluation because we are concerned with Ella's language. She is super smart, comprehending and knowing what we are saying, but she does not repeat words and her spoken language is lacking. They came out and not only was she delayed in language, but also in motor skills, so she will be receiving in home services to help her. It is scary to hear your child is delayed, but I am glad we can get her help. She will likely catch up, and as a teacher I know catching these things early is key. I think staying home with her has hurt a little. I am now looking for a part time preschool program for her.
My husband and I started a photography business last summer and it is going great! That is part of the reason I have had no time for these boards. I spent a ton of time editing, advertising, networking, bookkeeping, it is crazy. But in our first full year I think we are going to make close to $10,000, so not too shabby!

I actually have to run because we are photographing a wedding tonight and I have so much crap to do before we go.
Take care everyone, and I promise I will be back soon, and definitely share a couple pics!
