    I don't really mind, but I'm worried he'll accidentally elbow Arthur or something. Also, DH finds it kind of weird now that Oliver is so big and did wean for a while.

    We had our parent/teacher interview today, Natalie is doing well better than most the kids her age. She is strong willed and smart so some things are proving a challenge to her teachers, sometimes she won't do what they want.

    Here is a piece of her work on the wall if I had taken a shot of the whole wall you could have seen she is advanced compared to her peers. She was the only one to describe her picture with her own writing.

    The Dot Assignment was they had to use up to 10 black dots and make a picture with them, tell how many dots they used and what the picture was of.

    That's a great picture! And very creative. Alex is 6 months or so younger, and doesn't like art projects. He can barely draw anything recognizable (but can write his name a read easy books).

    I wish i could flip a switch and feel like our family was complete. But Arthur is just such a sweet baby. We'll see how I feel next week when DH goes back to work.

    Virginia - I'm only at 2 but I feel the same. I have moments of thinking 2 is really our the most we can handle. I'm impressed with some of the local private schools and would like to consider them for the boys but if we add more kids....oh we'll see

    Amanda - it sounds like she's a really smart little girl! Love the pic! Creative too!

    AFM - work is going well. Things here are good. The house isn't selling not a huge shocker so DH threw his resume online and has a bunch of contacts already. The joys of being in a sought after IT field. One of the potentials is a 12 month contract job paid at a large premium. He could do a contract gig b/c we might not WANT him to work once the house sold and it would be a good way to not burn a bridge so to speak. So we'll see. It's not an emergency at all now so he's just exploring options. I do think we need to get Evan in preschool, he's starting to seem a bit bored so that is something to consider too.

    Hi everyone!

    Amanda - Cute artwork! Sean loves art projects and writing. He wrote several of our family members' names the other day (with my help spelling), I just love watching him make the letters and learn how to spell some words. So fun!

    Katie - Booo for the house not selling. I sooo want to sell ours. I got at email from zillow yesterday that our estimated home value has gone up some, lol... I have no idea where they get those numbers, but I'll take any optimism I can get. It's still substantially less than what we paid for it, but it's at least more than what we still owe on it, so that's nice. Now to get a "for sale" sign up... ugh.

    Virginia - Such a sweet picture! I sorta feel like we're done, but sorta wish we weren't. I always feel like if all this neuro crap hadn't happened, I probably would've tried for a 4th and final baby. Even though we ALWAYS said we wanted three.... So what we have is really perfect for us and I feel lucky to have them all. I just love them all so much!

    Lauren - Sorry the ceiling wasn't perfect. I dread fixing ours.. It has been unfixed for like a year now, ugh. It's in a basement so not THAT big of a deal, but still VERY annoying.

    AFM - I've had a few decent days of neuro stuff, which is nice. Yesterday, I *almost* felt normal for a while. I've never felt perfectly normal again, but occasionally a day where it's close, so I'll take what I can get. Today, my right food is numb. It sucks and is very unnerving, BUT at least it isn't pain. I'd take the numbness over the neuropathic pain any day. Thursday, I go for repeat MRIs of brain and cervical spine with and without contrast this time, so if something's not right in there, they'll have better chances of seeing it, I guess. December 6th, I'll talk to the Lyme Dr. and get the results of all the tests he ordered.

    I got today off, woohoo! I had to work a double on Friday for the manager to go to a meeting, so today, he's working a double to cover my shift in return. It's mostly a hibernation day. I did go to the grocery store this morning, but the kids are all sick, so we won't be doing anything else. I'm going to make some giant pots of soup, bean/ham soup and potato soup (probably with bacon and cheddar cheese, yummm). I'll freeze what we don't eat for quick meals later. I wish the kids would be non-sick for a while. Sean has an outer ear infection and is getting ear drops for that, Nolan has a middle ear infection and is getting amoxicillin for that, and all three of them have HORRIBLE coughs. They've all been checked out and have clear lungs, though, thank goodness. We kept Sean out of school for today, so we're all just going to lounge at home together.

    Virginia - It wasn't until Natalie was a bit older that I felt like my family was more complete, or maybe it is having 4 animals now...

    Katie - Good to hear work is going well. Too bad the house hasn't sold, fingers crossed for you. Yay that your DH found some work.

    Mary - Glad your Neuro stuff is being less severe on you the last couple of days. Hopefully everyone gets some rest and recovers from their sicknesses today.

    We had a hockey filled weekend, Dana had a local tournament they got eliminated in the semi-finals but they played pretty well the team that took them out was really good.

    In the office today and it's pretty quiet, which is good, lets me get our catalogue done.

    Well, DH is completely set against ever having a dog, so I can't try that approach!

    DH goes back to work Thursday. It's going to get very interesting. Today he took Oliver out for the day and it's been so easy with the other three. After Raymond got home from kindergarten, we went out and did some grocery shopping then stopped at a painting place and they did a little project and we scheduled Raymond's birthday party. Now we just need to get a guest list together.

    Arthur is a great baby, and huge. He's already outgrowing some 0-3 months clothes and when I take him out nobody believes he's only 3 weeks. He has given me a couple 6 hour stretches at night. The others never got there until 5-6 weeks. But he certainly has a good set of lungs. He lets us know whenever he's not completely happy and has some impressive volume.

    Aw Virginia I'm so glad he's a good baby! And I'm feeling very jealous. Had this job not panned out I would have been preg or actively TTC now. Makes me a little sad but we can TTC in a while and enjoy our jobs/life more so it's all ok. But AF arrived this week and all your baby talk...sigh

    Amanda - Hm dogs haven't done it for me LOL I do think as they get older and involved in more life feels busy and complete though by nature

    Mary - glad you've had a good day off! I can't recommend house selling LOL Luckily the relo pays the realtor's 6% or we'd be looking at bringing money to closing as it is with the 6% paid for and the attorney paid for we should be about even to close, losing all we've paid of course prior. Blah! But hey if we had rented we'd have lost there too right? And luckily my raise and DH's likely raise over the course of a year should cover the lump loss. But it stinks. We knew it would but knowing and KNOWING are different. Aw well if/when it sells we will have a pretty easy time finding the right place here so that's good!

    Totally random baby fever taking over my dreams. I rarely have really vivid realistic dreams. I just don't dream much and even more rarely clearly remember them but last night I had a very vivid dream I had triplets. Three baby boys bringing our total to five. Sigh. Totally bad timed baby fever. With both boys bdays coming up I'm just having one of those moments. No babies in my immediate future but apparently that isn't stopping my subconscious from wanting!
