    Yay for June! I made it to my birth month this time around!

    Virginia - GL with no prevention!

    I've been reading, like always, I'm just usually too lazy to think of a response. But I've been following everyone!! I will try to be around more!

    Happy Baby Month Jen!!!

    I just caught up on May I was behind!

    Amanda - I've actually done a good bit of research on adoption. There's a lot to it - and a lot of good books. But the challenges are definitely very different than bio with attachment and potential delays (be it institutional or due to lack of bio care in older children).

    Mary - yay for the days off! The pillow thing is what we do now I'll stick with it and the monitor.

    AFM - been busy as usual. I worked Friday which isn't my norm and this week is a normal week but then I travel 2 weeks in a row. I'm generally swamped. And kids are crazy as ever. Rory is trying HARD to crawl. He can get up on his knees then loses it. It's pretty cute!

    Katie - Rory's almost crawling? Oh my, he's 6 months, isn't he! Good luck. That's when it really gets crazy.

    Jen - I wouldn't worry about being lazy. As long as you tell us after LO comes!

    AFM: Oliver is starting to stand and walk. Took him long enough! He's been cruising since about 8m but didn't want to let go.
    DH thinks I'm already pregnant (I don't, although my chart might be my prettiest ever... for 4dpo ). Yesterday I actually did some things on our housecleaning to-do list. Among other things, I spent 4 hours cleaning and organizing the boys' closets (starting at 7am!). He said "you're nesting!" and I told him I was just getting stuff done. The closet stuff needed to be done before we have another baby so we can find the baby stuff and won't get done once I'm exhausted and sick and then huge. I'm glad I did it after we decided to try because looking at newborn clothes sets off baby fever like crazy!
    And then he decided to cut up a watermelon and I came down from upstairs and mentioned I could smell it from up there. He just gave me an "what did I tell you?" look. In my defense, it was a very fragrant watermelon.

    Happy birth month Jen!

    Virginia - Too funny about your DH and looking for symptoms.

    I know there can be issues with addoption, remember we took DH's teenaged niece in for 10 months. Part of why would love to adopt a 2 year old, less baggage, yes I know there could be issues but they are still so open to learning at that age and issues can be worked on.

    *AFM*

    My baby fever didn't get helped this weekend a friend of ours announced that they are expecting this December. I also know that my BFF will likely get pregnant quick after her wedding in August. Really not going to be a good year for keeping my fever down, especially since I already have it. To top it I am constantly hearing from my co-worker that her DIL has trouble taking care of her boys (4 and 11 months), and that she can't handle it alone, making me wonder why she gets to have kids and I don't. Stuipd V! Maybe DH and I will become crazy cat people instead, there is a kitten at the pet store around the corner that is such a sweetie DH and I adore him! So wish we could take him home.

    Other then the wanting a baby/kitten in the home I've been doing pretty good. Had a nice relaxing weekend with no real plans. Some friends came over for dinner last night and we sat and talked it was nice. Today I made a second batch of wine jelly.

    Last weekend I got my dress for my BFF's wedding, I got this in a deep red (her colour choice).

    Amanda - Pretty dress! You'll have to share some pics.

    Virginia - Too funny about your DH finding symptoms. Can't wait to see if there's a new BFP on the board in about a week.

    Katie - Good luck with two (almost) mobile babies! It's about to get very fun, hahahah...

    AFM - I worked today and my week of vacation began at 4pm, woohoo! I took a mini power nap because the kids were asleep when I got home. DH cooked steaks on the grill for supper, and now... Both kids are playing quietly together with train track stuff on the floor. They NEVER play quietly together. It's amazing!

    Virginia - OoOoOo I can't wait to hear! I think you'll totally rock 4 kiddos! I can't wait for those pictures

    Amanda - I forgot about your niece! A friend adopted a 3 year old from China recently. It's a very different experience but he's learning and catching up incredibly quickly. I have never brought up adoption to DH but it has crossed my mind recently (hence researching it). There's so much to consider with it though. I'm sorry baby fever will be coming on heavy with all the friends SO hard!

    Mary - Yay for 2 boys playing calmly crazy! Enjoy vacation!!

    Rainy lazy weekend here. I didn't clean nearly as much as I should have but it was nice to relax. Rory is LOVING his limited mobility already and I'm noticing a real improvement in him. He's willing to play on the floor for extended periods, not as much crying and crabbing. It's REALLY nice.

    I was talking to my BFF yesterday, she told me she is holding off on getting pregnant until after her surgery in December (reconstructive stuff due to a burn accident). As happy as I would have been for her getting pregnant, I am kinda relieved that she's waiting.

    Amanda - sorry about the baby fever. I think you should totally get another kitten! I don't know what I'll do when the kids don't constantly need me anymore. I'd get a dog, but DH really dislikes them.

    Mary - yay for the boys playing together! It'll happen more and more often.

    Katie - I'm glad Rory has gotten less clingy.

    Jen - any news?

    Lauren - how are you doing? Update if you get a chance!

    AFM: temp jumped today and my chart looks a lot like my pregnancy charts... but it also looks like 2 of my not-pregnant charts. I really don't think I'll have a BFP this month (which is fine, because we're going to a kiddie amusement park in a month and I'd rather not know I'm pregnant when we go )
    Oliver spent all day yesterday practicing. He walked laps around the living room. It added to the general craziness since he was constantly moving, but it sure kept him happy. His sleep has been crap the past few night. I hope that improves soon.

    ETA: I'm so excited. Raymond's school hired a male teacher. This is good for Raymond, but it's great for Alex. Alex is going next year and given the choice he always interacts with the men in his life instead of the women. If we get together with friends he only talks to the dads (sometimes even instead of me!) And I think there's a good chance Alex will be in the guy's class.

    Jen - happy baby month!

    Katie - glad you worked out the co-sleeping situation, for now anyway.

    Virginia - your DH is too funny looking for symptoms! I'm excited to see what happens in a few days!

    Mary - YAY staycation! I wish we would've done that instead! hahaha.

    Amanda - sorry about the baby fever. Cute dress! So how was that wine jelly?

    AFM, we got back a few days ago from a week away. OMG traveling with Xander is such a huge PITA!!!! He whines a lot after about an hour in the car, though it wasn't as bad as that one time... He did better than I thought he would, but it was still stressful. Plus we only stayed places for 2-3 days, so there was a lot of packing and unpacking and loading/unloading the car over and over again. Anyway, so we had fun at the zoo and at different parks and stuff, and Xander loved the hotel pools (of course). But overall it was way too exhausting! I think we're done with long trips like that til the kids are older... I'll do a week at my parents since we're just staying put, but not a week of a little here... A little there... Bah!

    In other news, I still haven't gained any weight (yay), but I am definitely looking "fuller." haha. You all saw the pics, it's about the same I'm sure. All my pants are tight and the bella band is in official use (or yoga pants). Most of my shirts are unflattering, too, since they're all fitted. Boo. Won't be much longer til I bust out the maternity gear!! Also, I puked for the first time yesterday. Oh goody. It seems to be a stand alone episode at this point, I think because of the super vinegary dinner I'd eaten the night before. But it was all bile since I hadn't eaten yet. Ewwww!

    Now I'm just trying to catch up around the house! Of course my sister just told me she might come visit this weekend. D'oh! I need a weekend off people!
