    Virginia - ugh that is definitely NOT what you need! I've definitely seen the downside of owning as we've lightly considered moving in the last year and selling would be such a huge hassle (we lucked out the first time we sold it went in a week, this house would likely take longer). But it is nice not to have to worry and rent and move. GL, hopefully he won't sell at least not right now!

    Jen - That is exactly how my doc described croup when Rory had it. Their small airway constricts, she mentioned in adults it would typically be laryngitis but in babies and small kids it's croup. Steroids and a breathing treatment (not a typical one, it had to be done in the office then we had to wait like an hour to be sure there was no reaction) cleared Rory right up too. It's such a sad sounding cough! Evan had roseola over Christmas 2 years ago. Kids and their bugs! Hope your house sells!

    Mary - Hope you're doing ok!Loved the video on FB man those little boys are cute!

    Amanda - How's your dad doing? Hope he's on the mend. Sounds like you're really busy!

    Ashley - Maybe your body will cooperate this time! Glad the doc wasn't too worried about the vision etc

    AFM - I'm off today and tomorrow YAY! I'm so annoyed apparently one of my dogs has learned to open one of our baby gates. It's just one you lift up b/c the latch broke years ago. She sticks her head under it and pops it up, lovely. Well she did it the other night and someone pee'd upstairs on my carpet. The dogs are not allowed upstairs, the carpet is new, the dogs aren't supposed to even walk on it let alone pee. SOOOOO I've been steam cleaning it and trying to get it washed out and dried which is not easy with the humidity. TOTALLY annoying. They have no normal access to rugs for this reason! BAH! First world problems I suppose. It's really nice to have 5 days home all together, work has been draining and I'm feeling burned out.

    Jen - sounds like Roseola to me. I hope Sam doesn't catch it. The rash isn't bad (just looks bad) but the fever can be nasty. Alex had roseola right around 11m and did just fine.

    Ashley - sorry for no progress.

    AF<: we're expecting to leave the area next summer, so buying doesn't make any sense and moving for just a year would be a pain, especially right now! We just have so much on our plates. I hope some of it resolves soon.
    And I backslid on the BFing. It had been 3 days, but when I woke this morning I had the kind of itchy clog-like feeling, so I let Oliver nurse before his nap. I'm pretty sure he cleared something on one side, but he fell asleep before finishing the other and it still doesn't feel quite right.

    little boy 4.26.11 @ 38+4 6lbs 14oz, 19.5" BFed until 26mo and again 30-37mo

    TTA, but would welcome a surprise

    Virginia - GL on the nursing....Rory still nurses before bed. I've gone up to 4 days (when traveling for work) w/o then I go to put him to bed and he asks (now verbally lol I've never experienced a kid that can say it!) and I figure why not. We'll probably wean completely soon I'm not making much but it's sweet and it's the ONLY time I get real relaxed snuggles now that he's talking, walking, running crazy pants! I hope you can make it another year, UGH to the stress!

    Ashley - I can't remember were you induced with the other two? Hope this one comes on his own.

    Jen - I hope someone buys the house soon. Also hope Owen gets better fast.

    Katie - Animal mess sucks! Our older cat is prone to UTI's and can be quite gross because of it. Vinegar does a good job of neutralizing the smell, it's the only thing I have found that works on cat mess.

    Hope you have some nice relaxing days off.

    Virginia - That is frustrating about the rental place. I'm sure the weaning will happen in it's own time.

    Went into the office yesterday, the power went out, so it was really quiet, found something to do to occuipy my time.

    The hospital is doing some trial time with my dad at home, he gets to come home today but then goes back at night. If today goes well by the end of the weekend he is home full time, just has to go for regular check ups at the hospital for a while.

    I go for my injections today, I am so tired of going and getting them done every 3 months.

    Amanda: yeah I was induced with both of the other two. I'd love for this guy to come on his own but I'm not holding my breath. That being said, my last induction was cake so I really won't complain if I get a repeat of that. Still though, it'd be nice to know he came on his own time! GL with the injections today

    Virginia: glad he at least helped unclog one side. Thanks for reminding me about clogged ducts...ugh. Me and BFing don't have a loving relationship sometimes and after nonstop plugged ducts with DD and then on and off thrush the entire time I nursed DS, I'm not exactly looking forward to what this baby will bring! Maybe he'll be the easy one

    Katie: smart doggie, but what a pain for you! Hope you're enjoying your time off!

    Jen: glad whatever Owen did have seems to have cleared up. I hate random weird illnesses like that, they are so frustrating and a little scary.

    Woke up to pee in the middle of the night and had a TON of pressure down there when I was walking, laid back down and had slightly painful contractions for the next 45 minutes or so, then I fell back asleep and when I woke up later they were gone. Feel perfectly fine this morning though...so weird. Hoping my body is trying to do something but I doubt it. Most likely just trying to annoy me. : PS: posted a new belly shot in the belly pic thread but it isn't showing up on the main screen?

    Ashley - crazy that it could be any time! I really hope the nursing is easier this time. I was lucky and had fewer clogged ducts with Rory, I think I knew the signs and got on top of it more quickly. I don't miss the wild over production though. I have about 200 oz in my freezer still I need to chuck.

    Amanda - Ugh no fun on the shots Glad your dad is doing well though. I think I'm going to try vinegar in my steam machine, someone said it works well that way and you mentioned it too

    AFM - We tried to take Evan to get his hair cut but he went so crazy we just left. UUGGHH He totally loses his sh!t when we try to cut his hair. BLAH it's so not fun. I should probably just give up and give him an all over buzz at home and be done with it. Embarrassing moments in parenting It is rainy and cold here today, so not a beautiful day off! It's ok though we mostly had errands to run anyway.

    Katie - the best hircut Raymond ever got as a toddler was when my mom came with me and distracted him with an iphone. They've all done terrible haircut meltdowns.

    Ashley - that sounds a lot like the night my water broke with Oliver. I got up, had the pop and pressure, then painful contractions... went to sleep and they stopped. ugh.

    Amanda - GL with the injections.

    AFM: no word from the landlord yet. 19 weeks! I'll post a pic sometime. I'm going to take them weekly since I don't know how long the pregnancy will last.

    ETA: found one I want to look at! It's a duplex (ick) and is smaller than what we have now (and less expensive), but the location is perfect: right next to the kids' favorite playground!
    ETA2: I'm so sick and tired of "sorry, we don't want little kids" which is usually phrased as "we're not sure it's deleaded" but this is the first time I've heard "the owner only wants same-sex roommates." Are you serious? It's blatantly illegal, but at the same time, I'm glad I didn't waste any time or effort with a realtor/landlord pair who would say something like that, let alone try to live in a duplex where they only want roommates. I had enough of college kids when I was in college. Insane. I forgot what a hassle it is to try to rent with small children and cats.

    Just popping in to share some recent pics, taken Wednesday for his 3 Week birthday.






    This one just made me laugh. He was raising his head to look at me.
