    Mary - yay for AF! GL with work. It must be tough going back after such a long vacation.

    Amanda - I'm glad Natalie is doing so well.

    AFM: I think I'm ready to see AF any day now. I have been unusually tired today given how much sleep I got and it's making me nervous. I really don't think I'm ready for another baby yet and I kind of doubt I'll be ready this summer.

    Mary - Yay for AF! Isn't it always that way? AF waits until you shell out the dough for some HPT's, and then shows up hours later. I'm sure everything will fall into place with the house and job, it just might take some time! Good luck!

    Amanda - Glad Natalie is doing well in school! Did you have a productive afternoon, too?

    Lauren - O yet?!

    Virginia - Glad the boys slept so well for you all bunked together! I keep telling DH at least if we decide on a third, we have two boys and can always bunk them together when we run out of space. I hope AF shows for you soon so you can get a handle on everything!

    AFM - Thanks for the words of encouragement! Don't get me wrong, the kid "talks" all day long, and acts like I should totally understand him. It's just mainly lots of jibberish at this point. He likes to repeat words randomly when we're talking throughout the day, and will use about 15 or so on his own (aside from a ton of complex gestures telling me what he wants, which I understand and probably doesn't help his lack of words!). I picked up two more words this weekend, so maybe I just wasn't paying enough attention?! But, I still don't feel he's where he should be.

    On that note, the EI lady called me today to set up our first parent consultation (this Friday, yay!), and she was super super SUPER nice and helpful. We talked about Owen and where he was in different aspects. I sort of expressed some fear in the autism label, and she told me from what I'd told her about him, she wanted to put my mind at ease and say that she definitely doesn't think he has autism at all. So that made me feel a lot better!!

    I took a minute to do a B&W conversion on a picture of my cat I figured I'd share since it seems quiet today.


    Had a good day, got some cleaning done, though not as much as I would have liked to. My aunt and grandma came to visit for a short bit I enjoy their company.

    Hope everyone else had a good Tuesday.

    Jen, I'm glad you got your first consultation scheduled! Sorry you all were sick, but I'm glad you're feeling better now.

    Amanda, adorable cat. Love the pic.

    Mary, hopefully something will open up in that area soon. Just keeps your eyes peeled! I save flushing the toilet as one of the "rewards" for when Xander actually pees. He loves it! If only it would get him to pee more!

    AFM, OMG I HATE potty training! Xander is afraid to pee - he's not afraid of the potty, he'll sit there no problem... He just freaks out when he's about to pee and will start fussing/crying and jump up. He spends almost all morning and all afternoon having to pee because he'll hold it. We aren't having any accidents, at least. He'll pee a little bit in the potty chair when he's desperate, but for the most part he'll hold it til he gets his nap time or night time diaper. Is this just going to be a waiting game? What else can I do! I am so freakin' exhausted all of the time because this has sucked up all of my time. I don't even get to shower every day anymore! I'm not going to put him back in diapers, I'm not. We're DOING THIS dangit! But until he gets over his fear, it's going to be a bumpy road. Boo!

    Oh yeah, as for O'ing.......... I'm not sure! haha. Maybe yesterday, but maybe not. My cervix closed up again, but then would open... Then closed.............. I'm like WTF is going on! So I guess I just have to wait it out and keep BD'ing every-other-day until I get a temp rise or something happens.

    Lauren - have you tried letting him pee standing? We got some paper confetti (but hole punch dots work too) and at first the boys peed on those to make it a game. Good luck!

    Amanda - beautiful photo

    Jen - I'm so glad your conversation went well. I hope the assessment does, too.

    AFM: I feel more like i have a handle on things now. Having the boys all stuck inside during 5 days of bad weather was terrible!

    Lauren - GL with the PTing. You're doing better than we are, in that we still put Sean in diapers most of the time. I just can't get into the training, uggghhh... I need to, but it just totally sucks! hahah..

    Virginia - Woohoo for the sleep situation! LOL... We still have both kids and our dog in the bed with us. We'll get it figured out soon... I hope. Calvin STILL wakes up like twice a night to eat... WTF?!?! I know he doesn't NEED to. I don't get it. He'll wake up inconsolable until he gets his milk. Sean stopped eating overnight at like 2 months... Jeez. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and sleep train him or something. Grrr.

    Amanda - Pretty cat pic. I wish my dog would hold still long enough for me to get a picture of him.

    Jen - It's good to hear that the lady isn't concerned with autism. That's gotta be a huge relief. GL.

    AFM - I got a call on my cell phone today from a local number that I didn't recognize, so I answered it, and the man asked for me. I told him it was me, and he continued to introduce himself as "officer so-and-so" with the police department. I had an immediate internal freak-out because the police don't often (ever) call me, hahaha... Well it turns out that he was working on a complaint I had made to the Mayor's line about the loud music from the bar behind my house. He has spoken with the city prosecutor about it and since the bar does not have a permit allowing them to play loud music, they can start writing them citations every time we call (aka, the bar gets fined... woohoo!). Of course, the first question I had was how we can prevent them from just going out and getting such a permit. He didn't really have a good answer for me on that one, but suggested we start with our block watch and our HOA. I still don't know if anything will be done about it, but it felt good to have them legitimately address our concerns. He stopped and had a talk with the people at the bar, then stopped at my house and talked to my husband (I was at work). So at least SOMETHING is getting done with it and we're not just being ignored.

    Mary, I'm glad it seems like the city is doing SOMETHING about that bar! But yeah, seems like they'd just run out and get a permit after they get fined... Hopefully not!

    Virginia, oh man does it suck to be trapped indoors, especially for that long! I've tried enticing Xander to pee standing up, but he wants nothing to do with it. I told Jer to pee for him when he gets home to see if that'll do it, but probably not. His potty chair is a little awkward for standing up to pee...

    AFM, Xander finally peed! Like really peed! His entire bladder!! Wahoo! It wasn't voluntary, he was bursting at the seams and couldn't even stand up anymore. haha. But instead of just dribbling a few drops he finally emptied his bladder. This was right before nap... Hopefully he learned that it feels good to pee on the potty and his fear is gone, but we'll see this afternoon. I am hoping and praying that things will start to get easier now! It's been FIVE dang days of potty training, I deserve a break! haha. I made a huge fuss and he was so proud of himself after, so please please PLEASE let him be okay with it now! lol

    Things seems pretty dang fertile today, so c'mon O! I haven't checked since this morning, but I was watery then. Maybe I have some EWCM? I should check... If not, hopefully tomorrow. I'm so sick of BD'ing!! haha. I know that sounds bad, but doing it every-other-day SUCKS! And now if I'm fertile I'll have to do it again tonight, even though we did it last night, just because you kind of have to! Even DH is sick of it. I think we're both just so tired and crabby from PT'ing and DH is still kind of sick, so we have not been in the mood. Isn't making a baby sexy? Geez, I feel like I wrote this same post last month. hahaha.

    Yay Xander! He'll get it, Lauren. As for peeing standing, having daddy show them definitely helps. A step stool at the toilet is more enticing, I think, than trying to get them to pee into a little potty. It also provides a bigger target. I hope you O soon!

    Mary - yay for progress with the bar.

    AFM: so, I was spotting this morning (7dpo by my count) and was sure it was the start of AF. But it has since stopped. Hopefully AF will really start soon. I'm in no rush to get pregnant right now. DH has hinted the next might be our last (but he's not definitely set on that).

    Virginia - I would have trouble believing the next was your last... I totally imagine you with the huge family! I'm thinking 6 for you. Or what did Raymond say, 11?? Or 11 in addition to him? LOL.

    Lauren - I know, making a baby can be totally non-romantic, lol... We had fun making Sean because it was on our honeymoon. With Cal, I was still traumatized from the m/c and so I was totally like, "just get it done so I can have my baby now." LOL... sexy.

    AFM - Going off that damn BCP was the best thing I ever did.. Not only do I not have insane mood swings and constant nausea anymore, but my AF this time was SO light and short and relatively cramp-free by comparison. I feel sooo much better.
