    Lauren - Weird short cycle! I had one like that just two cycles before we conceived Sean. Maybe it's good luck? hahah...

    Amanda - Glad Natalie's team did well!

    AFM - Up to my neck in vomit and diarrhea, ughhh... Sean and DH both started vomiting in the middle of the night. I guess DH started around 1:30am, Sean started around 4:30am. I was glad it hit Sean when it did, so his stomach was pretty empty and he didn't have much to vomit. But he has had some major diarrhea today, yuck! It smells like poison. I guess it probably is poison, haha. I ended up taking another day off work because there is NO WAY my DH was going to be able to handle the kids in this condition. Nothing like having 6 days off work, and dealing with someone's illness literally from the beginning of it to the end of it.

    Lauren - Keeping everything crossed that the scan results come back good and you get to start TTC soon.

    Mary - Hope everyone is feeling better soon.

    Mary - that is no way to spend time off work At least it has hit everyone and you know you're through it....hope everyone is feeling better quickly!

    Amanda - hope the afternoon goes quickly!

    AFM - long night. Rory wasn't feeling sleep yesterday or last night. He fought napping most the day cat napping here and there, fought going to bed, was up from 2-3 when I finally just stuck him in bed with us but he still wouldn't settle. I'm hoping it's just a bit of the cold or something. He seems better today, is sleeping now in the swing for longer than I think he slept all together yesterday.

    Mary - It's so rough when a bug like that goes through the family! I hope everyone feels better soon.

    Katie - I hope Rory feels better. Oliver hasn't been sleeping well the past 3 nights either. He wants to play at 3am.

    Lauren - weird cycle. I hope the test comes back okay.

    hi, everyone else! I've already gone over my allotted wasting time time for this morning, but I wanted to share a few recent pics of Oliver.

    first haircut before/after


    he's pulling up on everything (this time it was his jumperoo)


    first snow! He had a blast crawling around in it, but wouldn't smile for the camera... only when he was looking down at the snow


    He has his 9mo appointment coming up soon (wow). He's tall like the others and moving into 18mo clothes, but he's a little slimmer than Raymond and a lot slimmer than Alex. He's such a sweet, smiley, loving little guy. He gives kisses and claps and waves and says Mama and Dada and maybe Hi and tries to say Cat. (Sounds crazy for not yet 9mo, but Alex was like this, too.) I'm being reminded every day why we've ended up with 20mo spacing both times. This age is so much fun!

    Katie - I hope Rory gives you some good sleep soon. I thought I was going to die if I didn't get good sleep last night. I had been up since 4:30am with sick DH and Sean, so I was dying of exhaustion.

    Virginia - Cute pics! I can't believe he's almost 9 months already. I also can't believe I'm starting plans for Cal's first birthday. Only about 6 weeks to go! It really does not seem possible... Grr, why do they have to grow so fast??

    AFM - We're feeling a bit better today. No vomit or diarrhea yet in the house yet today. I had to have changed nearly 20 diarrhea diapers for Sean yesterday, no exaggeration. Just one huge one for Cal (he had his a couple days ago and was mostly better yesterday). Dh was totally wiped out, so he was no help. These boys are a handful to take care of by yourself when they're both healthy, but with one very sick, OMG... It was a rough day. Now, my parents are coming down with it. They must have picked it up on Sunday when they visited. Uggghh...

    Virginia - he is so darn cute! What a happy boy!

    Mary - I'm glad everyone is on the mend but ugh to all that sickness

    Rory is not a happy camper. He was up a bunch last night and finally around 4 DH just got up w/him b/c I was just done. He's crying and cranky and just generally unhappy. Sigh. I'm feeling ready to be done with baby-dom today.....

    Virginia - That boy has a crazy amount of hair! The cut looks cute.

    Mary - Sorry to hear about the illness hitting your house, hope everyone is back to 100% soon.

    Katie - Hope Rory starts sleeping better.

    Monday night I was cooking dinner and spilled a good bit of grease on my hand, it hurt really bad Monday night but my fast response in treating it prevented it from getting bad, I woke in the morning feeling much better.

    Yesterday I just cleaned up my kitchen while Natalie decided to leave trails of toys everywhere.

    Today I'm working so nothing exciting.

    I don't know if anyone has been to any of the sites protesting censorship by the US gouvernment, I don't mind the ones with pop-overs like http://icanhascheezburger.com/, but I am annoyed by what http://www.wikipedia.org/ has done when you try and search something, there are other sites following suit. Thankfully it's only for 24 hours but still it's annoying and for the smaller sites doing this they are just going to lose possible repeat readers. I am against government censorship but there are just ways of educating people and I don't think blacking out your own website is the way to go.

    Amanda - I actually read an interesting article on Wikipedia and how they had a major vote on how to approach the legislation and what they would do to protest. They only took down their English version but all of it came down for the day. It was impressive the thought that went in to their actions because of how detrimental the legislation would be to their operation. I can see how it would be irritating to you though being a Canadian. I did my part educated myself on the legislation decided I agreed with Wikipedia and e-mailed my congressman and both senators. To give credit where due I probably wouldn't have been as proactive w/o Wikipedia's black out to make me more aware of the magnitude of the pending legislation.

    We had a good night last night. Thankfully! I think he's feeling better. His nose is running a bit more today but I wonder if it wasn't plugged up and hurting him maybe? It's so hard when they can't freaking talk! But I was only up twice last night like normal and he isn't screaming all day today! Another cup of coffee in me and I'll be good to go Evan is in a good mood today too. Yay for good moods

    I have happy news!

    I got a call from my doctor - her nurse actually (which is a GOOD thing since you know it's good news if the nurse calls, lol). Anyhoo, as suspected they think it's the histoplasmosis. They can tell it's inflammation, not cancer (the radiation they injected me with would've "lit up" had it been cancer). SO YAY! Obviously it's not 100% clear that it's histoplasmosis, but they're pretty dang sure and since I have no symptoms they're not worried.

    That means I can TTC next cycle! But I may wait an extra month, maybe, because...

    In other news, I called the dr last week about Xander's speech. She was out of the office until today, though, which is why I hadn't heard back. I said that he definitely talks a lot more, buuuuut most of his words don't sound right - especially t's, s's, and r's. Which is a big red flag for problems with the tongue or mouth... So she referred us to a speech therapist at the hospital and a speech therapist that will come to our house once a week. I should be getting a call in the next few days to schedule appts. I'm not worried at all that it's anything cognitive, like autism. The kid is smart and follows commands, even quite detailed ones. He knows all his colors and shapes and a lot of letters. He looks me in the eye, etc. etc. etc. It's just the way he talks that is off (Pink is "tink" Grammie is "mammie" park is "****" things like that). So hopefully this won't be a big ordeal. I'm hoping he needs something simple, like getting his tongue clipped, and then a little bit of speech therapy. We shall see, though.

    I'm sure this won't be a big deal, but if I go to the initial appt and it is I may hold off TTC for a month just to get Xander going on speech therapy before I go a get preggo (and tired, sick, etc.). I'm sure I'll be TTC next cycle, but I'm not going to force it if I think it'll be better for our family unit to wait a month.

    I'm glad everyone and their babies seems to be on the mend! Lots of illness and injuries going on around here lately!

    Virginia, love the pics! How cute!

    Katie, glad Rory is feeling better. I always feel so bad for the little guys when they get stuffed up since they don't know how to help themselves (and I feel bad for the mommies, too, of course).

    Amanda, ouchie on the grease burn! Glad you knew how to handle it!
