    Looks like a bunch of us kept posting in the November thread, maybe it's just that we all aren't ready for December, I know I am not it snuck up on me.

    Katie - Good luck! I hope baby boy is well on his way now!!

    Oops... Happy December everyone, lol!

    Virginia - I can't believe Raymond is almost 4!! WOW! Time flies... I still remember the little picture of him around his first Easter sitting in the flowers and he was all fat and cute... I always thought that was the cutest freakin baby picture, hahaha.

    AFM - Took the kids to sit on Santa's lap today. FAIL. LOL. Even Calvin who is ALWAYS in a good mood was not in a good mood. In his defense, the mall where we go has an entirely glass ceiling and it was REALLY sunny, and it was bright in his eyes, so he just kept wanting to shut his eyes. Sean was clinging to DH and would NOT let go, so we have no pictures of Sean alone with Santa. Our best pic was of the 4 of us together with Santa, lol, and DH has a goofy expression on his face.

    After we got home, I was undressing Cal to put him back into comfy clothes (I had them in red/green plaid button-up shirts for the pics) and while I was doing that, Sean was climbing all over me as usual and went sliding across my knee and dislocated it. OMG, PAIN. I was SHRIEKING. I've had it happen before and it's always really scary and painful, but it always snaps right back into place on its own. This time, it was NOT going back into place. I spent a couple of the longest minutes of my life laying there SCREAMING while DH held my leg... I physically could not bend at the knee and the kids were still trying to climb on me. DH was all trying to get the dog in his cage and the kids in the car because we thought we were going to have to go to the hospital to get it back into place, but thank goodness, it finally went back in on its own. It still hurts and I'm scared to put any weight on it. DH is at the store buying me a brace for it now. The kids are napping, thank goodness.


    I posted some Christmas pics that I took of the boys last night, but I realized it was a bit pic heavy. Pasting it over to a new thread...

    Ugh... My knee is a wreck. I'm hoping it's just tender and will take time to heal, but I don't know. I took it out of the stabilizer for a bit earlier and it was NOT good. I only managed to have it out about 10 minutes and had to put it back in because it hurt. I'll get this stabbing pain sensation and it will feel like spasms or something. Not fun at all. I'll probably go to the urgent care tomorrow for x-rays or something, because I'm just nervous that it's not entirely back into place or that I've injured a ligament or something. I'm just not sure, but I need some sort of peace of mind before I have to go to work and stand on it all day Monday. Blah...

    Mary - Sorry to hear about your leg.

    Went Christmas shopping today, really didn't get too much bought since we don't have too much extra this week. Got some seasonal hand soap for Dana's bathroom, a top and sweater for Dana and some shirts for DH's nephews, have to go exchange one of the shirts cause though it says 7/8 on it, it is about the size of a 4, that won't work.

    Well my knee is going to be okay, I think. I went to the urgent care and my xrays came back normal, thankfully. The doc said I should see an orthopedist since this is a recurring thing for me. Ugh... I know I should, but I really don't want to. It's not like it happens often, but it has happened several times. This time was by far the worst, though. And I hate even thinking of it happening again. I know there are orthoscopic surgeries they can do to treat the condition and help prevent recurrences of knee cap dislocation... But ugh! I don't want a surgery! They also recommend exercises to strengthen the quadriceps, like squats and stuff. Maybe I'll just see a doc and see what happens. I dunno. Anyway, the doc at the urgent care sent me home with a full immobilizer on my leg.. It goes from my thigh all the way down to my mid-calf and prevents me from bending my knee AT ALL, as well as a pair of crutches, some pain meds, an ace bandage (because the immobilizer wasn't enough?) and I have my original xray films, which is kinda neat. I am to take them to the orthopedic doc if I go. Blah...

    Calvin took a step tonight without holding on to anything!! At 9 months, he's got Sean beat by a month and a half for first steps. Crazy...

    ETA: (copied from fb) - OMG, he KEEPS DOING IT now!!! This is nuts! He really can only go one step before falling down, but the fact that he keeps trying it is awesome. He stands flat-footed, gets his bearings and holds his hands out to steady himself, then takes a step... just one step. TOO CUTE!

    Mary - I cannot believe that Cal is already walking! WTG little man!

    Katie - Congrats on Rory! He's so precious! I hope that BFing is going well and that you're home by now!

    Virginia - Umm.. Raymond is gonna be 4?!? He still seems like a toddler! He's getting so big!

    Amanda - Hooray for Christmas shopping! We've only bought my SIL's gift so far. We better get with it...

    AFM - I had a u/s on Wednesday. I've been dealing with some pressure/pain in my girly parts. Everything is fine and healthy, it's just normal to be in pain with close pregnancies. Lovely huh? Anyway, our little one is 100% BOY and his name is Cooper so far. We've been trying it out to see how it feels. We like to call our babies by name to see if it's natural. So far, so good on Cooper. I think it'll stick because we bought Christmas stockings with all our initials on them.

    We moved into our first house 2 weeks ago. We're still getting settled, but we LOVE all the space. Claire is army crawling and rolling (continuously) EVERYWHERE and into EVERYTHING! Who needs to crawl when rolling is easier? Claire is amazed each time we walk by the Christmas tree. I love seeing the excitement on her face. Christmas is going to be so great this year!
