    Happy New Year!!

    Hope you all have had good holidays. As for us, we're SUPER close to having a walker!! Cal is taking some steps here and there, and has perfected his ability to squat down from standing, pick up a toy from the floor, then stand back up. He can now stand up in the middle of the floor without needing furniture to pull up. I'm just waiting for him to learn how to connect more than a step or two at a time. I think it's merely a matter of days!

    Happy New Year! And Happy First Birthday, Claire!

    Good luck with the walking, Mary.

    AFM: TMI no O yet, I think. I felt super fertile yesterday but hadn't had a + OPK since early Thurs. It'll be soon. I'm being careful. I'm also looking forward to having my body back to normal.

    ETA: here's a chart link (if anyone feels stalking deprived)

    My ovaries hurt like the blazes, so it wouldn't surprise me if I got another +OPK in the next few days.

    Virginia - Yay (or boo?) for no O yet, hahaha... Just waiting on your oops!

    AFM - I'm bored with the non-winter weather here. We might see an inch or so of snow here today, and that's our first snow here all year. My DH got a snowblower for Christmas and I want to see how it works, haha. I have a friend who lives in a little pocket of the state up by Cleveland that gets the crazy lake effect snow and they're supposed to be getting 2 feet right now. He's always trying to sell me his house since I always complain about wanting to move. Hah.. NO thanks!

    hope you get some good snow, Mary! I'm still enjoying a break from snow after last winter!

    AFM: OPK super close to + this morning. Definitely being careful. I'd like to put off an oops for a bit longer.

    Happy New Year Quiet NYE here DH and I realized we haven't gone out and done something for NYE since the very first year we met 2004 ringing in 2005. Apparently we settled in to being lame old people really quickly (and happily). I enjoyed a glass of wine - my first since last Feb and we watched the ball drop and went to bed. Rory gets me up 3 or so times a night so just making it to 12 was a waste of good sleep haha

    No snow here but I'm fine with that. We are due for a few inches and we have family in a lake effect region that are supposed to get slammed. but by this point last year they had had 3-4 ft already. This year they haven't had 1 ft total. I'll take it though. I'm not a winter person.

    I'm officially 30 now. I thought I might care but really I'm pretty indifferent. I think my 30s may be better than my 20s and between college, marriage, and 2 kids my 20s were pretty fantastic. As my mother says "It's better than the alternative" LOL

    Mary - You can have our snow, supposed to get 1 foot by tomorrow morning, I'd rather be in Florida enjoying warm weather instead.

    Way to go Cal! I'm sure he'll be walking in no time.

    Virginia - Hope you can hold out on that oops until things are a little less crazy.

    Katie - Happy Birthday! 30 really didn't feel much different to me.

    *AFM*

    AF decided to show on the 31st, guess my new years gift from my body...

    Anyway she didn't stop me from having fun, the girls went out with Nana, DH and I went to Dinner at the best pizza place in town called Pie, then we went to Williams (a coffee house) and had some drinks, went to see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, then came home and watched Rise of Planet of the Apes, by the time it was over it was past midnight so we wished each other a happy new year, then talked to the girls on the phone and wished them a happy new year. (wow run-on sentence, LOL).

    Yesterday we went to my aunt's house for New Years day celebrations, she does it every year and it's always a good time.

    Today I was really lazy didn't really do much, tomorrow it's back to work.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Katie - Happy Birthday! Thanks for sharing to pic of Rory. They look pretty similar! Oh, and I had to check... Raymond was 12lbs 3.5oz and 22.5" at 1m (I don't have stats for my others, but Alex was heavier, Oliver lighter). Yeah, 13lbs is a big boy! wow.

    Amanda - glad you had a good new year's!

    AFM: my body wimped out. oh well. I'd like to start cycling because if I know when I'm actually fertile it makes it easier to take preventing seriously. But... if I'm not fertile I can't accidentally get pregnant, so that's good, too.
    I'm not sure what happened, but DH has gotten more relaxed about preventing, has made references to when we have an accidental baby, and even told me he's surprised how manageable it is having 3 little boys. Uh oh. If he starts asking for another I'm not sure if I can hold out.

    Happy New Year y'all!!

    Katie, adorable pic. I love the comparison. I remember staying up til midnight on NYE when Xander was just a few months old and thinking the same thing in the morning - waste of sleep. lol. Happy 30th!

    Sandra, hi! hope to hear more from you soon.

    Amanda, sounds like you had a great night! I haven't been to a movie in a loooong time. One of the few times I wish we lived closer to family so we'd have a babysitter.

    Virginia, I can't believe you're DH is on board! It took him a lot longer after the others, right?

    Mary, WTG Cal!!

    AFM, not much going on here. Slowly starting to take ornaments off the tree. Ugh, I just don't waaaaaaaaanna! It's much more fun to put Christmas stuff up.

    I finally go in for my PET Scan on Monday. It's done by some special company that visits the hospital once a week (they bring all the equipment with them), so that's why it's taken forever to get me in. I hope this is the last thing I need to have done, I'm just so over all of the poking and prodding and x-rays and BAH!

    Anyhoo! So who else put on a few pounds over the holidays? I definitely gained my 4-5, but I think I'll have 'em off pretty quick now that I'm back to clean eating and regular exercise. Totally worth it - I ate some good stuff! haha.
