    water broke this morning. Heading in to check on baby. He's being unusually quiet (still getting a few little movements).

    ETA: back home, waiting for labor. Induction tomorrow at 8:30am if it doesn't start on its own.

    I hope you are holding your little man right now!!! And he's healthy and happy and that you are feeling well too! Check in when you can!

    No word on the people that saw the house today BUT another person is coming Saturday! Fingers crossed because I freaking LOVE having a SAHD! OMG it's fantastic. The rental house is coming together. It's still a bit rough and there are some things like the rough carpets we can't (or won't) fix but we have hung some stuff and sorted out the dogs so that they have space. OMG we went from fence to no fence...with 8 dogs...someday I'm going to write the adventures of life and moving (twice) with 8 dogs. We're nuts. But we're surviving and falling in to a routine, finally!

    Virginia - Hope you are enjoying your time with your little man right now and that you had a super easy delivery.

    Katie - Glad you are getting settled in the new place, hope your house sells soon, are you planning on buying where you are if you do sell?

    I'm in the office spreading the plague, I have a cold. I do have q question for Mary, I have a bottle of Vitamin C it expired in August, didn't use much last year, lucked out and didn't get sick October - May, anyway I am wondering if it would be OK to take now. What I found seems to say it is it just might not be as effective. But I'd rather trust a pharmacist over the internet.

    Here is the article I read.
    Is Expired Vitamin C Dangerous? | LIVESTRONG.COM

    If they were over 6 months expired I might toss them but this is only 2 months.

    Arthur Robert was born at 1:01 am October 25th, at 41w, after an intense 2 hour 15 minute labor. To our shock, he is 8lbs 15oz and 21.5". He's a pound and a half heavier than my previous biggest baby. I made it through, but had some "substantial" blood loss after delivery. I'm doing a lot better now (17 hours out) than when he was born, but I'm still weak and shaky.
    Arthur is a great baby and a great nurser. I'll try to get photos and a full birth story up sometime after I get a little sleep.

    WELCOME ARTHUR!!! I'm glad all went well, you got a vaginal delivery and you're recovering. Give yourself time to heal mama He still sounds like a peanut to me

    Amanda - we will buy eventually. We have a one year lease. I don't love the house but I'm adjusting. The carpets are old and beat up, the land is meh and there is no fence which is a PITA with 8 dogs. But we really are adjusting fine. So I think in an ideal world our house would sell fast and we'd have flexibility to save some money and just look for the perfect house. If the house drags on past January we probably won't be able to maintain rent and mortgage and the double bills on just my salary. So we'll see! Someone is going at 11 tomorrow...so fingers crossed

    Yaaaay!!! Congrats Virginia and welcome Arthur!! So glad the delivery went well with the exception of the bleeding. Yay!!! Can't wait to see pics!

    ETA: Amanda - just saw your question (on my phone.. it's annoying). Anyway, I have never seen any problems related to expired vitC. I would lose some potency, but shouldn't harm anything.
