Your Sugar Plum:
1. Name? Kate
2. Birthdate? 12/23
3. Weight? On our scale at home, 37 lbs (going for check up on Monday)
4. Height? Our measurement says 39" (again, official will be done on Mon)
5. Clothing/shoe size? 4T/5T and size 9
6. Favorite color? pink and purple (but more so purple)
7. Favorite toy? probably her leapfrog puppy Violet, or her Hello Kitty stuffed animal
8. Favorite TV show or movie? Bubble Guppies and Strawberry Shortcake
9. Funny story or moment to share? This morning while using the potty she told me that she fell in Nana's potty and that I flushed her. lol I asked her if she dreamed it and she nodded yes, but I'm not sure if she grasps that concept yet. Hopefully she doesn't think I really did that to her!

You:
1. TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done? Kind of randomly we decided to see what happens this month :eek: I'm in the 2ww...so we will see. Anderson had two really bad nights of sleep recently, so I'm starting to rethink this, lol. Maybe put it off for a few more months if nothing happened this time. But we decided we want one more and that should be it.
2. Anything new or interesting to share? DH is at a job interview right now. He's applying to be a flight instructor at the airline, so it would be more nights home and better pay. I really hope he gets it.

Siblings:
1. How are our Sugar Plums dealing with siblings (new or older)? Kate is best friends with Hayden. They play together really well, or they fight like cats and dogs. It's hot or cold. She LOVES her baby brother. She is a little mama to him. Sometimes I have to scold her because she'll hold his hand or foot while he's trying to crawl away and won't let go, which makes him mad.
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? Not really...Hayden seems so big to me now. He's already 4 1/2...going to start Kindergarten in August. Anderson goes for his 9 month check up on Monday...still not sleeping straight through the night. But he's super sweet and plays really well on his own. He crawls and cruises everywhere.

This is one of the best ones we got from her party, lol. She had a Hello Kitty party.

9. Funny story or moment to share? Oh man, he has so many! Biggrin Every time I wash his face after eating he'll always yell at me 'Don't wash my hair!!!' ROFL

You:
1. TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done? uhhhhhh, we have no idea! We thought we were going to TTC this month, but I got major cold feet. I'm just worried about money and watching 3 kids. DH is sure he wants one more, but he's willing to wait until I'm ready. Sometimes I still want to try this month, but I just don't know. I wont O until the end of the month, so we'll see.
2. Anything new or interesting to share? Not really. We're boring people Smile I can not wait for warmer weather though! Winter is rough being inside with 2 little ones.

Siblings:
1. How are our Sugar Plums dealing with siblings (new or older)? Ryken loves Sully and always asks where he is if his napping. They do fight over toys a lot, but other than that they're always kisses and hugging each other.
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? We're meeting our new Edocrinologist for Ryken at the beginning of Feb. I'm bummed because we have to drive to Milwaukee- which is nearly 2 hours from us. I'm just surprised that they don't have one for us to see because Appleton is fairly large.

And finally, let's see a new pic! I would love to see our LOs celebrating their 3rd birthdays!!

Here's Ryken at his birthday party.

8. Favorite TV show or movie?Fireman Sam
9. Funny story or moment to share? This starts a few hours before the funny bit....I was cutting Tobey's nails yesterday and Alexander was interested in what I was doing. I asked him if he wanted me to do his (I haven't done them when he was awake for about 18 months) and he freaked and said "no I need my nails". So it got to bed time and I *thought* he was asleep. I did one nail and that was fine but the second one woke him up. So I told him I was just giving him a kiss and he went back to sleep. Then at 10pm when I went to bed and actually went into give him a kiss he sat right up, but with his eyes closed and shouted "Mummy, I need my fingers" then lay back down. It was so weird but funny Smile

You:

Siblings:
1. How are our Sugar Plums dealing with siblings (new or older)? Pretty well. Liberty is the only girl in the family (along with the brothers that I've given her, DH has two sons from a previous marriage!), so there really isn't any jealousy because she's my only little princess!
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? I think my son Maximus might be "gifted." Meaning he's very special and is having an extremely hard time in class (he's in first grade), but because it's too easy for him and he's bored. We're sending him to be tested as soon as we can fill out the miles of paperwork required just to get an appointment!

And finally, let's see a new pic! I would love to see our LOs celebrating their 3rd birthdays!!

Katie- That's great that Ryken and Sully are so sweet to each other! Good luck with your TTC decision. Wink

Sarah- That's so funny that you have to clip his nails while he's asleep. He must go ballistic on you, lol. It's so cute when the talk in their sleep, isn't it. Smile

Erynn- How sweet that he loves his grampa so much. He looks like a little angel in that pic!

Krystal- Liberty looks ADORABLE in that pic! And very cool about your DS!

Rachel- Kaden looks like such a little character! I'm glad he's excited about his new brother or sister. Are you finding out the gender?

1. Name? Jocelyn
2. Birthdate? 12/22/08
3. Weight? 38 lbs
4. Height? I forget, but 95th percentile
5. Clothing/shoe size? 4T clothes, 9 shoe
6. Favorite color? ?
7. Favorite toy? toy stethoscope/doctor's kit

8. Favorite TV show or movie? Elmo and Strawberry Shortcake
9. Funny story or moment to share? So many... A few months back, I walked into her room in the morning and she had pulled the couch over, stacked toys on the couch, climbed them like a ladder, and was lying down in the top shelf of her closet (7 feet in the air).

You:
1. TOC, TTC, Pregnant, Done? DONE
2. Anything new or interesting to share? I had lapband surgery in mid-December. Recovery went well and now I'm waiting for my first fill to help quash my appetite. 17 lbs down so far, one clothes size smaller.

Siblings:
1. How are our Sugar Plums dealing with siblings (new or older)? Jocelyn has accepted Elliott as a member of our family. She still is not thrilled with him, but she has realized he's not going anywhere and includes him when she takes turns, etc.
2. Any fun or interesting things to share about your other kids? Elliott has similar language delays as Jocelyn, but he understands more because he didn't deal with the hearing loss from fluid that she dealt with. He's starting to approximate a few words now, which is very cool. He is waaaay more laid back than Jocelyn, but he's also waaaay more timid and reluctant to try new things.

And finally, let's see a new pic! I would love to see our LOs celebrating their 3rd birthdays!! Twist my arm...

3. 32 lbs. I think
4. About 3'1"
5. 3T - Size 8 shoe

7. She has "little guys" as she calls them which mean any little figurines that are small enough to fit in her hand. To be honest, she prefers her books to toys. She takes the EVERYWHERE!
8. Any Disney movie - right now we are on a rotation of Enchanted, Alice in Wonderland, Pocahontas, and Meet the Robinsons
9. Just one??? I find her language so amusing. She repeats everything I say exactly as I say it, and if she doesn't understand she asks "What (insert word here) mean, mommy?" Some of her funny words include "askident (accident)" and anything with a R (she sounds like a Bostonian).

You:
1. 5w 4d PG with #2 Biggrin
2. Same old thing. Just enjoying watching Caitlynn grow and excited for the new LO.
