    Virginia - Okay, I'm glad I'm not the only one "imagining" fertile signs after DTD. At least if I'm crazy, you're crazy too, haha.

    Katie - LOL @ Evan and his "duh mommy" attitude. I swear I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. I think I've had that exchange with Sean before, hhaha.

    AFM - Starting the 9-day week AND the guy I work with who is the manager is on vacation until next Monday. That means that for the next week, I get to deal with all the angry customers and crap that I can usually push off on him because he gets paid more to deal with it, LOL. Yaaay.

    ETA: LOL... Calvin and Sean are being SO funny right now. Cal is climbing all over Sean!! Usually it's the other way around, but he's all on top of Sean, trying to bite his nose and grabbing his hair and ears and whatnot, and LAUGHING hysterically. It is too funny. Sean keeps yelling, "Get off me!!" but he goes right back for more.

    ETA again: A recent pic of Cal.. Just thought it was cute.

    Mary - Super cute pic of Cal! I can't believe how big he is! I swear I keep thinking he's still a newborn. Good luck during your 9-day run! Yuck. Hopefully no angry customers will come your way. And I had to about the OPK!

    Lauren - Glad Xander's teeth are okay! I am always scared to death of that. Owen had his front teeth for seriously .05 seconds before he fell face-first into a metal bar on his Radio Flyer push-toy last winter, and chipped a small corner of the right one! It's totally fine, but still. I always see that chip, now! BOYS!

    Katie - So cute about Evan! That is so funny. I keep waiting for Owen's speech to pick up! He's talking nonstop, but is just about impossible to understand. And he whines a lot without opening his mouth. We've recently started making him at least be verbal with us and tell us what he wants vs. grunting/whining and us giving him what he wants because we know what he means. I swear he just refuses to talk. If you ask him to say something, he goes, "NO."

    AFM - I caved and POAS this morning! I'm so weak. But get this, I KNEW it would be a BFN going into it because it was SMU less than an hour after FMU! So that right there was bad. Plus, I'm only 8 dpo, so I know it's toooooo early! But still. I had to. I figure, I've got 10 IC's, plus an FRER, so I can waste a few IC's in the next few days, right? Anyhow, total BFN. Though I swear I thought I saw a shadow of something (evap?) but it's so faint, I think my eyes are just playing tricks on me! I'm going to pretend it wasn't there because I don't need to get my hopes up. Symptoms really picked up this weekend, but maybe it's all in my head. My back has been hurting, and I had cramps all day yesterday. Not so bad today, though. Plus I've been super thirsty (and thus peeing all the time), and this morning I woke up feeling like I might puke all over the place. Sigh. I think it's too early for all of this, though! Oh, and my nipples hurt. Oh well. Could all be PMS symptoms too, right?! I guess only time will tell.

    Virginia - how are the boys - any fun crazy 3 LO stories?

    Mary - LOVE the pic Cal is looking older! He even looks calm though

    Jen - couple more days and we'll be begging you to POAS lol b/c we're good at pushing! I say use the ICs why not? lol no sense saving them

    Yes Evan is a chatterbox now! I love it. He can name all sorts of animals and I love the few he says funny -- Algagator and Gee-er-af. I know he'll eventually get them right but there is something really sweet about Algagator and gee-er-af. I also love when he confuses things. We have a Mickey book with Cowboy Bob in it and he knows Cowboy Bob so I'm reading a different Mickey book (we have a Mickey Mouse obsession) and I read "and Goofy brought corn on the cob" and he goes "Cowboy bob?" lol I love this age. It's so much fun He can count to 10 too no problem but the alphabet is still a work in progress....we get ABCDE then he needs help LOL

    LOL, too late! Day 1 of 9, and I've already had one irrational screaming lady. I'm in a pretty good mood though, so it's not wearing me down yet. I'm sure it will be by day 9 though.

    I commented on your other post already, but I'm calling that a total BFP!!! Congrats again.

    LOL... He is zen baby. I've never seen anything quite like it. If only they were all so easy, hahahaa. I doubt I could get that lucky twice, but we'll see with the next one, hahaha.

    I love it once the LO's hit the chatterbox stage (especially in the short time before the back-talk phase... enjoy that while it lasts, lol). The latest thing Sean has picked up is that when I go to starbucks, I order a "caramel latte". He says it PERFECTLY. He even says "care-a-mel", rather than "carmel" hahaha. Too funny.

    AFM - Absolutely nothing exciting whatsoever here. I think the weather has finally gotten back to Fallish after several 80-degree days, which I'm actually happy about. I already got out all my sweaters and long sleeves after several colder days, then it went back to hot, which was a bit annoying. Day 2 of 9 at work. Nothing at all exciting... Which I guess is good considering all my excitement lately has been of the bad variety.

    Mary - you never know... I have two zen babies so far.

    Katie - nope, no great stories right now. I have a great pic, though... I'll get it up soon.

    Jen - congrats again!

    AFM: Oliver got his first tooth yesterday. I can't believe it. It seems so early! The second is close to coming through, too. Poor guy has been having a few rough days. Last night was a disaster, too.

    I'm a little jealous of the beautiful baby belly (Katie!) BFPs (Jen!) and JLIH attitude (Mary!) all over the board. I feel more sane when I spend less time on here. I love having 3 kids but I think I need Raymond to start school before we add another. Especially since I'm trying to cut out my bad TV habit. I've been letting the kids watch too much (started shortly before Oliver was born) and they need to stop. And it's not just being busy, our car and house would be hard pressed to fit a 4th. It'll all look better in a few years, I bet.

    Mary- All my babies have been pretty zen... its when they start talking that it goes downhill here. I can't believe how big Cal is either, crazy.

    Jen- Congrats on the BFP!

    Virignia- The boys costumes are cute. You did an awesome job making them.

    Katie- Are you getting excited? You're pregnancy has gone way fast for me lol.



    AFM- My cycles are officially completely back to normal now and baby fever is starting to go crazy lol. This is the 2nd longest time I've ever gone without getting pregnant since Mason was conceived lol. I'm not even sure if we are having another one at this point but if we do it will definately be the last so I'm trying not to rush it. The boys are all doing good. Are washing machine quit working so its been/ going to be quite interesting until the weekend when we can go get a new one. Its crazy how much laundry goes through this house.

    Virginia - I love the costumes. You did an awesome job on the homemade ones! Sean was a turtle for his first Halloween, but it was definitely store bought because I'm not that crafty, haha. This year, Sean is being Yoda and we just bought Cal a simple little devil suit (basically a red sleeper with a hood with horns).

    Karen - Booo for the washing machine! I hear ya on the fever... But my cycles are not back at all yet, let alone regular, haha. I'm with you though... We're 99% set that baby #3 will be our last, so I'm trying not to rush it. Nor am I going to get all crazy with the OPK's and all that. I'd like for this one to just happen in its own time, so I'm just going with the JLIH approach (haha, Virginia) and we'll just say it was meant to be, whether it happens super soon or if it takes a while. I just feel more laid back this time.

    AFM - Three years ago today, I found out I was going to be a mommy for the first time. Aww, what an amazing day. Of course I had to work 2-10p that day, so I got the BFP in the morning, then had to go to work and try to keep my mouth shut, haha.

    I'm jealous of my parents. They left early this morning for a trip to the Adirondack mountains. I'll bet it's beautiful there this time of year. I'll be heading to work soon for day 3 of 9, yippee!

    Mary - wonder if they'll be near me! I live at the foothills of the Adirondacks. It is nice - though unusually warm this last week! It's been a miserable year for bugs and ticks though bleck!

    Karen - It really has gone fast. 34 weeks tomorrow....doc Friday then doc at 36 then I'm down to weekly!! Oh how I wish he'd come a little early!!

    Virginia - LOVE the costumes! We haven't gotten ours yet. They have a parade at Daycare so we need to find something
