long time no chat

hey there...it's been awhile I know. We've been through some things the last couple of years, and I've been sporatic at best with my checking in. Between job searches, surprise pregnancies, and subsequent losses, life has been crazy.

We lost 2 babies this year, one in Jan. and another in April. I changed schools again, and am now BACK in my original school district to stay for good! Mike (hubby) is an assistant principal on my campus, Mickie is 3 going on 13, and Matthew is growing like a weed and learning more and more every day!

We are officially the parents of 2 preschoolers. Everybody is out of diapers (Matthew is still in pullups, but he JUST turned 2, so I'm okay with that). Everybody is out of the crib-Mickie's crib has been converted to a toddler bed, and then converted again into a full-size bed; Matthew's crib has been converted to a toddler bed too.

Bittersweet time for us right now.

I'm going to spend the next few days catching up on everybody-I see Lisa had another baby! As soon as I get done with this post, I plan on looking at pics of her baby boy-can't wait to see what the rest of you are up to!

Hey there! Glad to hear that your family is doing well. I'm so sorry to hear about your losses Sad Mickie sure is growing up! I can't believe how big she is in her picture! Matthew has red hair - adorable! I hope you'll be around more now - it's good to see you again!

Conor is adorable by the way-cutest little mouth! Mike says we're done...sold off almost every single baby-type thing in the house. We have one crib mattress and a bumbo left to part with, and then it will be official Sad We've lost 3 out of 5 pregnancies, so he's probably right to be fearful.

Mickie is growing like a weed-same height as the 4 year olds at her school, lol; Matthew is definitely a redhead, has been from day 1, and the temper is NOT a myth!

Red heads are awesome~

It's good to see you pop in. I was just thinking about your guys recently too. Mickey is SO big! And all that gorgeous hair!

We've been through a rough patch here, but I think there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Finally seeing some light... no greater relief I tell you.

Glad to see you checking in! Your LO's are so cute! It's amazing how quickly time flies. I get emotional at times thinking of how quickly J is growing up.

So sorry to hear of your losses, but look at Mickie and her brother, both growing so big!! Smile

It makes me sad how fast they grow up too. Leia seems to have hit her teenage years already with her attitude at times lol. She loves pre-school and cannot wait for Christmas!

As for me, I have been made redundant and finish here in March. It's gonna be a rocky start to the year but things happen for a reason, right?

Sorry to hear about your losses. Your kids are adorable, I can't believe how different Mickey looks!!! Her hair is so dark, I always thought of her as a blond.

I'm so lost Kristi..."made redundant"? "Finish" are you leaving PO? I'm just confused-language barrier I think...what do you mean? I just got back, I hope you're not leaving!

lol....she didn't have much hair for awhile! It was darker, but so sparse, that her scalp may have been shining through making it look lighter in pics. Mike's head hair is jet black (or was until we had kids, not he's more salt and pepper!). His facial hair is RED...which is where Matthew's coloring came from.
