    I've read everything and am marking my place. We are back home and settled back into some normal routines, but it's been crazy since DH has 2 freelance projects right now, both with July 1 deadlines.

    Just copying this from my facebook status for those of you not on there...

    Back from the boys' Dr. appointment. They both got 2 shots (lots of tears, aww). At 2 years, Sean is 30 lbs and 35.5". At 4 months, Calvin is 14lb 10oz and 25.5". I looked back at Sean's 4-month stats and he was the same length, but 17lb 3oz. He was FAT, lol!!

    Doctor was impressed with Cal's development, said he has perfect head/neck control and he smiled/squealed/cooed/laughed for her, so she liked that.

    And the best part.... I found out that apparently in January of 2010, I paid a bill that my insurance also paid and I am owed a credit somewhere in the realm of $400!! It's always nice to find money you didn't know you had!

    Amanda - Dana just got out of school? Seems so late! When does the school year start up there?

    Ashley - Come on baby boy! Sorry you're still just 1/2cm dilated. I can totally understand why your priorities have changed on wanting to be induced! I was like that towards the end too!

    Katie - I like your response to my SIL rant. And I like your siggy picture! Hooray for a vacation soon! I've never been to Cape Cod, is it beautiful there?

    Mary -I've been having pregnancy dreams too! Yahoo for the surprise $400!!!

    Erica - Glad you had a good trip!

    AFM - I'm a bit worried. My Mom's mammogram came back abnormal last week. She had an ultrasound (or was it a sonogram?) yesterday and they're doing a biopsy this afternoon. They think it's a cyst, but they just want to make sure. If it's anything to be concerned about, they're catching it early. The spot is only 6mm, so that's good! Still scary!

    Mary - Way to grow those boys! Hope the abstinence works for you. TMI: We're definitely not going that route. Let's just say, if I suddenly became fertile there's a pretty good chance we'd catch the egg. Fortunately, LAM seems to work well for me (fingers crossed it works this time, too!).

    Laura - My mom is going through that, too. She had an abnormal mammogram and recently had a lumpectomy, but it wasn't enough so she'll need a mastectomy. If you need any support or someone to talk to, PM me.

    Lauren - GL with the tantrums

    Ash - hope the camera comes back before baby comes!

    AFM: I got an e-mail from the women I met! The only catch is that they all know each other from church. They're Mormon, (which is why they're my age and have kids, that's rare in my area) and I'm definitely not. But they seemed okay with it. Hopefully it'll work out.
    Also, at the playground this morning I spent a while talking with a woman who was there with her autistic, 4 year old, great granddaughter. She told me that in the 40s-50s she had 9 kids in just over 11 years (no twins). Busy busy! Obviously, she was still very with it and did an amazing job with the little girl. I was really impressed. I'd like to be like that someday (maybe with fewer kids and with a completely healthy great granddaughter. )

    Mary - What are you feeding that boy? I need some advice on helping Natalie gain she's about 25lbs at 2 1/2 years.

    Yay for the credit!!!

    Laura - School starts the weekend after labour day, so early September. I know a couple of schools have modified schedules where they get more time off during march (spring) break and christmas, so they miss less over the summer.

    Thinking positive thoughts for your mom.

    Virginia - I found that some Mormon's can be really pushy about religion, there were some in my old neighbourhood seemed really nice if you just chatted with them but over time they would try to force their beliefs on you. DH has managed to keep them away from our homes in both the neighbourhoods we live in. I do hope that these people are different from the ones I've encountered and will be your friend for who you are and nothing else.

    Thats great that she is such a wonderful grandmother, good for her taking care of the grand kids.

    *AFM*

    Went to the park with Natalie, she had a great time.

    I felt kind of bad for this one girl she was disabled and needed assistance to walk, but looks like she will return to normal over time, this isn't want made me feel bad, what did was her mother giving mixed signals. The mom first told the she couldn't play on the stairs and slides cause she wasn't able to, suggested a springy see saw type thing, the girl walked over to the stairs with her walker anyway and started crawling up using her legs a bit, but not much, the mother walks over and tells her if shes not going to stand up then she's not going to get the play on the equiptment. Just made me so mad, I don't care if a kid is disabled they need to play and do it in their own way as long as it's not harming anyone, I would bet she'd heal faster if mom just layed off a bit.

    Hahah... He's addicted to milk. I actually wish he'd lay off a bit, but she said it's fine as long as he's not getting constipation and he's within healthy BMI range.

    Amanda - That's so irritating about the people at the park. I agree, if she's not hurting herself or anyone else, just let her play the way that is best for her... Grr.

    Laura - I hope all is well with your mom. How scary! I've been through that with my mom and she had to have biopsies. Thankfully in her case, it's always been related to fibrocystic breast disease, which really is not a big deal. I think I inherited it from her though, which sorta sucks. Anyway, sending T&P your way!

    Virginia - WOW, 9 kids in 11 years?!?! Holy freaking moly. I wouldn't have any hair left because I would have ripped it out by #5. Hahaha. It's funny that it's rare in your area that people your age have kids. In my area, it's rare for people to start as late as I did. I was 25, almost 26 when Sean was born, and I'm an old mom, hahahah..

    AFM - Sean had fun for his birthday today. There's a cool park nearby with nice elevated wood paths over a sort of swampy wetland area. Anyway, it leads to an area that is more in town, but set up in a way that it feels more isolated. And it leaks to a place called Creekside (literally that, a big creek). Anyway, you can do whatever there... Play in the water, fish, walk dogs, etc. So we took Sean there to let him play in the water. There's a (I think man-made) waterfall that he LOVED. It's probably only 4 feet tall, but it's pretty wide and has lots of water flowing over it. So I held his hand and let him stick his other hand in it... He had so much fun splashing and playing in it... He even stuck his face in it a few times, which surprised me because I figured he'd be scared of it. It was loud with all the water flowing, but he didn't get scared at all. He had a blast. After we played in the water for a while, we took the boys walking in the double stroller to another nearby park and let Sean play in a big play area. He had a fun birthday. We might take him to Steak n Shake earlier and let him try strawberry shortcake. (Okay, we were trying to think of desserts we could let him try for his birthday and that popped into my mind and I have been craving it ever since, hahaha).

    Amanda - it's all about the dairy for my older kids, too. They love it. I was actually friends with a group of Mormon moms while DH was in school and it was great. They weren't pushy at all. I'm actually a little more concerned about always feeling like and outsider because they all share the social community at their church and I'm obviously not part of that.

    Mary - sounds like a fun day!

    AFM: I got a shower sling off babysteals last week. Oliver has showered with me twice and he seems to enjoy it more than a bath. Today, Raymond joined us, too. Oh my. it was fun, though. I'm looking forward to using the sling with Oliver in the water (obviously not swimming!) in late August when we'll be spending a week at a lake.

    I'm so far behind so I'm just going to pick up personals from here

    Virginia - I hear you on friends. I have a strange mix my rescue friends mostly don't have kids or have grown children. So we have rescue in common and I probably talk to them most as we're always arranging rescue stuff etc Then I have a few mom friends but besides the fact we all have kids I don't have a ton in common with them personally. With work, dog rescue and the family I guess I don't have a ton of free time to search out moms who are also a lot like me personally.

    Amanda - school is a similar schedule here too this was the first or second week of summer and the week after labor day is when everyone goes back

    Mary - sounds like a fun bday! Big growing boys YAY!

    We actually went to a friend's house today (funny based on my comments to Virginia). But my friend from HS who lives about an hour away invited some people with toddlers over. She has a pool and a blow up bouncy thing the kids loved along with painting. Evan had a ball. It was fun to get out despite the 2 hours of car time. And a totally beautiful day not too hot but plenty warm enough for the kids to all run around wet. I actually think she and my friend with a 1 year old may swing over Saturday b/c DH is golfing. I'm tired from a day out in the sun
