    Erica - Lily sounds so interactive - every stage is so much fun!

    Virginia - ADORABLE pic! Oh you make some adorable boys! Glad you had a nice walk

    Lauren - sorry about the pool, ugh. I should ask my mom if hers is open b/c it's supposed to be HOT Thurs/Fri! DH travels here too and in this house DH does a lot - makes dinner, baby stuff etc etc so I feel it when he's gone! But there are things like my trashy MTV that I love that refuses to watch that I do enjoy LOL

    Ashley - aww I can't wait for movement! YAY for a good appointment.

    AFM - Busy work day trying to get ahead for next week. Going to Chicago for 3 days is going to screw me all up. And then for the next few weeks I have a TON to do and a bunch of things that take me out of the office both work and private (vacation). Sigh. Busy. The VP congratulated me today and also asked what my plans were - and I said to come back at 12 weeks PP to my 3 day/wk schedule. Which seemed to make him happy. He did comment that 3/wk seems to work well for me but it didn't work out at all for the other gal. Part of me wanted to tell him that's b/c I work at home ALL.THE.TIME. (like right now I'm putting off work I have to get done before bed) but then part of me didn't care. I have no desire to rock the boat, I like my little set up and I don't need to make a martyr out of myself or get credit. I hit my numbers, I do a good job, they just can't expect anyone else to be successful if they actually think they will only work the 3 days a week they are in the office.

    Katie - hope you mom's pool is open! Not sure how we're going to survive this weather. Ugh.

    So... the baby fever is starting. It's different this time, though. My gut feeling is "I want another!" but as soon as I catch myself thinking that the rational part of me goes "wait... no. not really. not yet." It's all those darn hormones. It'll fade. I hope.

    Virginia - ROFL! It won't fade until you pick a date and really settle on it, then it will go into a nice holding pattern. Love, love, love your new siggy shot of Oliver! Good luck in the heat - we are melting here already. I wish we hadn't chucked our broken window a/c last fall - even a broken one would be better than none.

    Katie - hope the pool is open for you guys! Lily is super interactive and full of personality - it's fun!

    Ash - yay for a good appointment and loosing some weight. I miss those heels and pokes!

    Lauren - sorry Xander freaked about the pool - hope he gets used to it quickly!

    Hey everyone else!

    We just got back from Lily's 9 month appointment - she's 18 lb 3 oz (50th) and 28.6 inches (82nd). Nothing too exciting otherwise. We scheduled her 1 month appointment though - yikes! Now we are just trying to survive the next few days without a/c - I think I might not make it though. We threw out our old window unit in the fall because it was dying and we had planned to buy a new one this summer, but we haven't yet and DH is a serious research fiend before buying ANYTHING, which is fine, but it takes him FOREVER. I just want an a/c in the bedroom now!

    Virginia - Baby fever with a 1 month old, you are CRAZY!!!

    Erica - Sounds like Lily is growing well, 9 months really? Hope you can keep yourselves cool in this heat wave.

    *AFM*

    I am soooooo glad we have central A/C at work and at home. Would have been nice to get out this morning when it was nice and cool instead of working though. Maybe if its cool enough after work I can walk the dog while DH does Natalie's after dinner routine.

    I am currently "working" on a catalogue for our gift and alternative healing products, I'm procrastinating far too much, my desk is tidied some other items are put in our accounting system but not much is done on the catalogue for how much of the day is over.

    So, we didn't even survive the next few hours without a/c - we went to a local place and bought an a/c for probably $80-100 more than we would have if we waited, but I didn't care, I made DH go at 4 and buy it - I told him we weren't spending another night without it. We are now blissfully holed up in the bedroom for the rest of the night (possibly the rest of the summer). It's a good thing too, they are forecasting 100F without the heat index for tomorrow. Yuck. I might have to pick up so new toys on the way home from work tomorrow - no playground in this weather.

    Erica - GOOD CALL! Not having A/C would be pure insanity! Central air in full effect here. There's just no other choice. We only set it to 73 (ok maybe I drop it to 70 if it's REALLY muggy lol) but I LOVE it. Somehow I grew up with out it but now I'm spoiled.

    Tomorrow is Evan's 18 month appointment! He's such a big boy now I'm also already dreading my business trip to Chicago Sun-Tue I really don't want to go. Sigh. Leaving Sunday REALLY bugs me. It sucks to travel during the week but at least that isn't taking up my total family time! BAH! And it puts me behind at work which adds to the overall stress. Oh well....Sun-Tue I can do it....

    Erica - we have the same weather. eww. We can't put an a/c in the boys' room until we get some wiring fixed... the electrician is coming Monday. In the meantime, we might all end up sleeping in one room tonight.

    Amanda - GL with all your work

    Katie - 18 months? wow, it does go quickly!

    AFM: awesome news! My mom's biopsys came back mostly benign. She did have some precancerous stuff, but it's already been removed. Whew. Still waiting to hear on the other issue, but the one I was more scared about looks okay.
    And oliver slept 6 hours last night! Then he ate, and went right back to sleep for 3 more hours.

    Ollie at 6 weeks (we're sticking with Oliver but he gets called Ollie, too, sometimes... and it's easier to type. )


    ETA: well, my mom needs more surgery, but at least issue #2 is also just precancerous and I don't think the surgery is too complicated.

    Just wanted to say hi! I'm alive, but just not enough hours in the day for everything lately. I'm taking Monday off (unpaid) so only 7 straight days instead of 9. So next week, I work Sunday, off Monday, work Tuesday, off Wednesday, work Thursday, off Friday, work Saturday, off Sunday, work Monday... Hahaha... Nothing like working every other day. Better than all those straight days, though.

    Virginia: I think Ollie is a cute nickname. YAY for your mom's results!

    Erica: I don't blame you! We finally had to turn our air on over the weekend and it's been running ever since.

    Katie: 18 months?! Crazy.

    Amanda: hope you got some work done

    Mary: working every other day definitely beats a long schedule of every days!

    Had to take the dog to the vet this morning (he has seasonal allergies so every summer I have to take him in to get a shot & a new round of meds to get through summer). Brekke loves him so much and was so excited to take him in the car since I NEVER let him in the car unless he's going to the vet or groomer (he sheds too much & I like my car clean). On a side note, DS seems to have dropped down a bit and is putting horrible pressure down there that makes me waddle a lot more often I hope he eases up a bit for a few weeks.

    So... I just ordered 14 CDs for $77 (with shipping). A Mom on April 11 mentioned them and I checked some reviews. They sound okay. They're clearing out some inventory and, while I usually like snaps, at $4.50 a piece I'll take velcro. Hopefully they'll live up to the reviews.
