What trouble has your LO gotten into lately?: Oh boy. Just today he's ran over the cat and my husband's foot with his walker, chased the cat, tried eating a bug, threw a block and barely missed the big screen TV, messed with the TV volume (yay for receivers with big round volume knobs :rolleyes:), and ripped a page out of DH's book. Can't wait to see what happens after his nap. ha ha!
What adorable thing has LO done lately?: He loves books. Yesterday afternoon he pulled out all of his books and took turns going through each one, turning all the pages. While doing this he babbles the whole time like he's reading! It's super cute and he was entertained for a good 20 minutes by this!

Recent accomplishments: DS is starting to sign "milk" again! He stopped while we were home because others weren't telling me as soon as he signed. And now he's starting to use it a couple of times a day again. He can do the signs for "all done" and "more" but doesn't use them very often. I don't think he quite gets the whole concept yet. lol

Name/Age: Kristi, 29
PG or TTC?: Neither, undecided. If we do go for another, TTC won't be until next summer. I'm torn. Some days I really think I'd like another, others I'm ready to move on to the next phase and just raise the kiddos we've got. We'll see where we're at in a year. I don't want #2 and the theoretical #3 to be too far apart in age, so we'll have a window of opportunity around June '12 until approximately January '13, so we have time to think about it. For now it's on the back burner.

What adorable thing has LO done lately?: She pats her mouth and says "ahhhahhhhhahhh"
