    It was a pretty quiet weekend which was nice. Friday night we just stayed in and DH and I went through the gifts to take inventory and to see who we still had to buy for. I'm exited to say we're almost done. The kids are most definitely getting spoiled this year (like that's different from any other year lol) I've had alot of fun buying for Aidan, he's still at the age where anything excites him and he's appreciative of whatever you give him, he thanks you when you give him a crayon lol.

    Saturday we just hung out around the house, The kids did some Christmas crafts and then Saturday night we went out for SIL's birthday we just went to pub for a couple of drinks, I was driving so I just had a glass of wine. Aidan was asleep when we got back to the IL's which is wierd for him, he usually keeps going until we put him in his crib. That should have been my first tip off, he woke up Sunday morning with a fever, poor bubs, when he was on the Motrin he was ok, but as soon as it wore off he was just so cuddly and warm, I love the cuddles but I wish it didn't come with a fever. DH stayed home with him today, he said he seems alot better, his fever is low grade and other than the snot and drool he's his crazy ol' self. I wish I could have stayed home with him, but unfortunately the middle of the month is too busy to allow it here at work.

    Wish me luck tonight, Aidan didn't sleep to well last night so I hope tonight is better

    Hiya . First, I loved the cake. Second, I understand totally about the blended family issues. I know it's hard (I have to DSD's), but you can bond with her. And I understand about treating kids differently. My DH and I have to fight with it, and with each other at times. Our best solution was to sit down and make out rules with consequences jointly so we put on a united front. Last, I understand about the baby fever. Come over to my house in Oklahoma and spend time with my bunch. That will kill your baby fever. lol

    So last night I went to pick up the pictures of Aidan and I. I was soo happy with them. I'm framing one for my mom for Christmas to go with her calander we get her every year (one of those Country Cats ones) I'm glad we stuck it out and went for pics a second time, even though Aidan wasn't really wanting a pic done we ended up getting a couple cute ones. I'm giving my mom the one in my siggy pic

    here's the other one

    (I think Aidan looks a wee bit scared lol, but I love how he's cuddling into me)

    Aidan seemed a bit better yesterday after staying home with DH, he was his crazy ol' self last night running crazy around the house. He just had a slight fever and a really runny nose and was also drooling alot, I'm still guessing teething could be a part of it, even though I don't see anything yet. Last night was horrible though, the poor kid cried and whined in his sleep all night. I got up a few times to rock him a bit and that seemed to calm him, but I could tell he was uncomfortable. I had even given him Motrin, which is a wonder drug to him. Fevers scare the poop out of me because before Aidan's first birthday he had Kawasaki Disease so now everytime he has a fever I panic and look for any kind of rash or redness.

    I'm very excited for this weekend, my mom is coming down to visit, she lives 4 hours away and I miss her terribly. She and I are extremely close. I think with all my emotions and stuff I really need her here, not that we'll talk about it much, but just having her around makes it better, funny, 31 years old and I still want my mommy when I'm sad. She's coming down for the family Christmas party, it'll be great for the kids because they'll get spoiled. One of my cousins is going to be there and majorly pregnant, I think she's due next month, so that's going to be hard to see, even though I'm extremely happy for her and know she'll make an amazing mommy, you just always wish it could be you, KWIM?

    I just wolfed down a huge amount of chinese food while I wrote this post (it took me longer than it looks lol) so now I'm super full, super thirsty and have to sit at my desk for for another 3.5 hours. ugh

    What a busy morning, it seems every mortgage in the world is closing today. I guess the lawyers offices will be closed for the holiday's so they're pushing early closings. Anyway the big rush of the day is over so I can take a minute to breathe and update.

    As usual the baby fever is running rampant in my veins, I guess PMS doesn't help. AF is due this weekend, lovely.

    I think we're just about done our Christmas shopping, we have about 2 or 3 people left on the list, I'll be happy when all this spending is over with. My Visa is crying for me to stop, of course I'm a compulsive shopper and will probably find something I "need" very soon.

    Aidan is feeling much better, he just has a bitl of a cough, nothing too bad. In fact he had an amazing night last night, didn't even make a peep until I had one foot out the door to go to work. I let DH get up and make his bottle so I wouldn't miss the train. It was also really cold and icey outside so I wanted to leave a bit early.

    I have an interview tomorrow for a better position here, mortgage underwriter. I don't have to write the test since I've already done that, but the questions still make me nervous, at least I know the lady interviewing me. I actually hadn't applied for this position, she approached me and asked HR to push my name through the screening process. I really hope it's a good sign, I need to move up.

    I'm counting down until my mom comes down, she'll be here Saturday afternoon and I just can't wait. I think 4 hours away is a bit too much, 2 hours I could handle, they're talking about moving closer and it would be about 2 hours, I really hope they do that soon, she misses Aidan terribly and I miss her terribly.

    Well it's been a few days since I've updated. Not too much going on.

    on the weekend my mom came down for the family Christmas party and our little Christmas with her. The party was fun and Aidan had a blast and got spoiled. I was a bit upset though, I was told it was only the aunts and the uncles buying the gifts for the little ones not the cousins, so I didn't bring anything, well all the cousins bought for Aidan and Alyssa so I felt like a total jack @ss. SD also pulled a suck when she thought she was only getting a few gifts, I was so upset. when someone brought her another gift she said "finally" I was livid. After that I was so scared taht Aidan would turn out to be spoiled by getting so much, I'm rethinking some of his Christmas gifts maybe put some aside for later or give some to charity. He really doesn't need all he got, too much ends up being overwhelming anyway.

    I think we're all set now, the gifts are wrapped, all the shopping is done and all we have to do is put together Aidan's train table tonight. this evening we're going to the IL's to read "The Night Before Christmas" which is tradition in their family. I hope we don't get home too late, although if the kids stay up later it'll be nice if they sleep in a bit....yeah right, I'm sure SD will be up at the crack of dawn, we've told her not to wake us up until 7:30am, but we'll see if that works, she'll probably wake Aidan up because she knows if he's up I'm up lol.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe, healthy holiday.

    Christmas was great, the kids got spoiled of course. Aidan loved his train set and plays "choo choos" every day. He still likes me to play with him though so I guess finding something to keep him entertained without me was a flop lol, he pulls on my hand and says "mommy, plaaaaay" and of course he's just so stinkin' cute I give in lol.

    This week is another short week here at work 2 1/2 days, I don't know how I'm going to deal with a full work week next week it's going to draaaag on forever, and more than that I'm going to miss Aidan like crazy. DH his home this week so it's nice for Aidan, but I'm sure he's missing his friends at daycare, he's such a social boy and needs to be entertained alot, sometimes I say he should have been a twin lol.

    We don't have any plans for New Years other than to stay home and maybe have a couple people over, I don't want to go out and cart Aidan around until the wee hours of the morning, I don't want to mess his schedule up too much, Christmas was alot of late nights, and although he handled it well, his sleep patterns were off, and I know that can cause ilness if you're too run down, we've been lucky with him so far (other than the Kawasaki at a year) so I don't want to push it KWIM?

    DH and I have been getting along better, but he's been really affectionate, wich is ok, but can be a little much. I don't mind snuggling, but not when I'm sleeping, and that's when he's been all over me, I need my space when I'm sleeping, I joke that we should get bunk beds lol. I still don't know what my decision is about us. I know I want another baby, I know he doesn't, neither one of us is willing to budge, so I just don't see how it can work in the end. I'll revisit the subject in April as per my original plan, that's when my BC runs out anyway, then I'll leave the BC up to him, I'm done with hormones and jeebus, I barely put out anyway lol.

    I went out and bought a couple of books today, one is called "Unexpected" by Lori Foster (about a lady getting pregnant) and the other is called "The Birthdays" by Heidi Pitlor (about babies) lol I don't know why I torture myself like this, I'm just finishing up a book written by a midwife too, it's great but man almighty it really get's the baby fever going
