    Hi there. My name is Rhi and I am new to this thread. I have a little girl named Elliot and she will be 5 months old on the 10th. We tried over 3 1/2 yrs for her and received our miracle this year. I am so blessed and grateful. I hope I get to meet and talk to other mothers like me.

    Lauren: Brekke still does that (falls over in the pool). She'll get overly confident & forget that her balance is all different in the water and go down, then freak out because it got in her "EYES!" haha And don't worry, my floors are lucky if they get mopped once a month these days.

    Katie: woohoo for the iPad! And I'm so jealous of your coffee - I want it so bad but every time I taste it, I just gag Soon enough I guess... Good luck with the chicken wire project.

    Mary: sorry you have to go to a funeral this weekend I can't wait to see pictures of Sean's new playset. Yeah 2 came fast! People keep asking me how old Brekke is and I tell them "almost 2" and it just sounds wrong (LOL).

    Rhi: Welcome!

    I don't have the baby's room anywhere near done yet, but here are pics of the bedding I did anyway as promised (sorry they aren't the best pictures, I was in a hurry):


    I have a black, white, & red star on the inside of the bumper on the side you can't see.

    Trying to show the outsides. Although the crib rails hide them somewhat (and 2 are on the backside), I have a pirate ship, hook, ship wheel, & anchor on the outsides. And PS: this crib used to be natural wood colored I'm proud of my paint job haha

    Also the new changing pad cover I made - this was the easiest thing ever!

    I will put up pictures when I eventually get around to finishing the whole room. DH's old desk is STILL in there although I have someone who is interested in buying it supposedly picking it up tomorrow so we'll see. Then I have to wait for Brekke's new chair to get here (I caved and got the Target one anyway after going to 5 stores looking for others) so I can move the glider, but I'm getting closer!

    So I finally am caught up again - letting this thread go for a few days and it's impossible!

    Sandra - sorry you are stressed about vacation - is it the travel or the actual time with DH's family?

    Ash - I love it! I am super impressed with your paint job too!

    Rhi - Hi! Welcome to the board!

    Lauren - my house needs a huge clean too - but we have been doing too much other stuff to get to it. I need someone to take Lily for a huge portion of the weekend so DH & I can really get through stuff.

    Katie - cool for DH! I hope your chicken wiring project goes quickly! I hated buying maternity clothes - I didn't want to spend the $ on them either. Now I am trying to get a bunch of summery tops that are easy to nurse in. I don't want to spend the summer in my nursing tanks only.

    Mary - sorry about DH's grandma and that you have the funeral this weekend.

    Amanda - great deals! Yay!

    Did I miss anyone? I hope not!

    My child is growing up so fast - she has started pulling up on everything and keeps trying to move while standing - she's not great at it, but where did my tiny baby go??

    I was getting coffee this morning and there was a mom with a tiny newborn in a moby behind me and then another one right outside with a 1 month old. I am starting to get some serious baby fever again. I'm so not ready to even think about trying, but wow I am definitely not done!!

    We have zero plans so far this weekend and I am starting to think I might want to just go to the park, lay on a blanket and read/nap and play with the baby. We'll see how well that works though.

    OKay nap is over.

    Rhi - Hello, welcome to the board.

    Ashley - Love the bedding, ninjas would be better though (just kidding).

    Sandra - Have fun on vacation.

    Erica - Hope you enjoy your time at the park.

    I'm done and had some serious baby (pregnancy) fever last week because of the TV shows Bones and A Game of Thrones. My first twinges of baby fever started at 6 months PP, so I think you are doing well, if you are like me (and I am sure many others) when Lily is more independent the fever will hit HARD!

    Natalie's school was going to have a BBQ but it got canceled due to weather, so we are just taking it easy today, and getting our shopping done so tomorrow we can go out.

    Last night we went to the Drive-in Theater with my BIL and his family and saw Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and X-Men First Class. Both the girls came with us, Dana watched both in the back of my BIL's van and loved them, Natalie slept through the whole thing. Pirates was first and I absolutely loved it, was a bit sad that I didn't get to see it in 3D (I love 3D), what I saw of X-men was good but since it started so late (after 11pm) I fell asleep for a good bit of it, we'll likely buy it when it comes out on Blue-ray (DH loved it) so I'll have a chance to watch it in it's completion.

    Hi Rhi, nice to meet you.

    Ashley - Everything looks adorable! Your little boy will have the cutest room

    Sandra - GL on the vacation - have lots of fun

    Erica - I can't believe how big she is I saw your 9 month post on FB and it seems unreal! Oh baby fever

    Amanda - Movies sound like fun I have actually never been to the drive in and there's one right near here. Evan wouldn't sit still yet so we have to wait a bit LOL

    AFM - beautiful day here today. We went to the farmer's market in the morning then over to a park to let Evan run around a bit. Then I came home and took a nap LOL DH hasn't gotten to the yard stuff yet but that's ok, we have a system that's working until he has time. He had to mow and do a few other things and I can't complain since I was busy napping Evan's going to drive me to drink. The kid LOVES mashed potatoes. Today at the farmer's market we got some potatoes DH boiled up and we just mashed them with a fork with some butter. Evan wouldn't touch them. Sigh. They were delicious but he wanted nothing to do with them. Crazy baby he better smarten up we eat them all summer long!

    Rhi - Welcome!

    Ash - Your nursery is freaking awesome!!! I love it!

    Sandra - Don't worry, the dealer assembles and installs the playset for us!! LOL... Sean would be 10 before he got to play with it if DH and I were left to our own devices with it. Good luck with the traveling!!

    Katie - Farmer's market sounds great. I really need to find one around here. I've seen some signs for them, but not exactly sure where they are. I really wanna go!

    Amanda - Drive-in sounds like so much fun! I've only gone once... It was over the summer with DH (BF at the time) when we were in college. We only got to stay for one of the movies because he had to drive two hours home afterwards and it was getting pretty late. It was a lot of fun though!

    Erica - YAY for baby fever!! LOL. I get excited when other people get baby fever (I think it makes me feel like I'm allowed to get it too, hahaha)... We were with DH's family today and his cousin (who has 3 kids) was holding Calvin. And she always gravitates to him and the small babies, and I was wondering to myself if she was having baby fever. And I swear it gave ME baby fever just thinking about it, hahaha. Also... Woohoo for Lily pulling up!! They do grow too fast!

    AFM - Went to DH's grandma's funeral today. DH missed most of it because Sean would NOT sit still and be quiet in there, so he took him out to the lobby and subsequently outside because he was like yelling while the funeral lady was trying to speak. I felt bad because I thought I should be out there with Sean and DH should be inside because it was HIS grandma, but I didn't want to cause anymore of a disruption than we already had by me walking out, then DH walking back in, etc. So I just stayed in. It turned out okay anyway because Cal ended up getting fussy too... SIL was holding him and he had passed out, so I thought he'd be okay, but he woke up and was fussy too. She handed him to me and he calmed down (aww ). Other than that, the boys were great today. We went back to the IL's house for a short while, then left for his cousin's graduation party (who lives closer to us than to MIL and FIL, so we only had about a half-hour drive to get home after that). LOOOOONG day, and the IL's want us to meet them for lunch tomorrow before SIL goes back to the airport too. I don't even know what time, but I hope I get to sleep in!!! We had to be up at 6am today to get ready and get out on time, and that was after the dog had to go outside at 2am and Cal had to eat at 3am. *YAWN*

    Oh my... PLEASE tell me I'm not about to have AF. It's too soon! I didn't get it until 8 or 9 months last time. But several days ago, I had something that was a mix between watery and EWCM. It was stretchy, but I don't think it stretched QUITE as far as my normal EWCM does. But I was amazed that I had any CM at all while still BFing, because generally it makes me dry as a bone, lol... TMI, I know. And anyway, I was awake off and on throughout the night with cramps in the vicinity of my uterus, and it's still going on this morning... Like PAIN. Pllllleeeeeeaaaaase don't be AF... Please?

    Oh no MAry! Then you have to figure out BC LOL DH and I were just talking that if we had #3 it would make sense to space it so Evan was in kindergarten so we weren't paying for THREE in daycare at once. But DH's response was "then we're going to have to figure out how to keep you from getting pregnant" LOL I hope your body is just toying with you!

    I posted belly pics finally in the belly thread and I'm making my first maternity clothing order. I decided just to order online.....mostly b/c I'm too lazy to go to the mall. If it all fits like crap I'll have to go return it and that will be motivation to go. I also bought a dress for a wedding I'm going to in July I hope I like it.

    I hope my body is just toying with me too, but I'm also in a BAD mood, which doesn't help my odds, lol. That could have something to do with the fact that the IL's have insisted that we meet them for lunch today, so we're just sitting around the house waiting for them to call and tell us they're on their way... And it's beautiful outside. And I have to work the next 9 days.

    I forgot to mention that yesterday, they insisted we go to DH's cousin's graduation party... We had the dog with us because we couldn't leave him here alone all day while we were at their house and the funeral. DH didn't really want to go to the party either after such a long day and early morning, so he tried to use that as an excuse to get out of it. They INSISTED that we drop the dog off at our house, then go back to the party. So... We drove PAST the party an extra 30 minutes to our house (which was already a 2-hr drive), drop off the dog who has ALREADY spent the entire day either alone in a cage or in the back of our van, then drive the half hour back to the party... Hang out there for a while, then drive ANOTHER half hour back home... Where we arrive 2 hours past when I should've pumped, after DH told me we might get home a half hour late for my pump. I told him to grow some balls and tell them no once in a while, but fat chance of that happening. Grr..
