We've been pretty quiet lately. So what are you all lately? Anything new going on? Anything totally random you want to share?
These threads are always fun!
I've been really busy at work, trying to finish some things before break. I'm looking forward to having time off to do stuff around the house and to plan some activities with the boys.
Mommy to 2 amazing little boys!

we are trying to sell our condo. it's all consuming for me. our renters moved out with one-month notice and we NEED to sell it. we really can only afford two mortgages for a couple of months. please keep your fingers crossed for me!!
also, the boys' 3rd birthday is planned for june 11. not sure how big it'll be this year. luckily we had already purchased lots of the party favors, decorations and their big gift—a wooden cabin/cottage for the back yard—before we got notice from the renters. my dad has been coming over to help prep the area (we ended up creating a small patio out of reclaimed rubber pavers) and next week we start building the house.

Nothing too interesting here. I'm a little tired these days since Jordan hasn't been sleeping that well. We have some traveling coming up now that we are at the beginning of summer break. We have three reunions in the next four weeks and I'm so nervous about how Jordan will sleep. Wish us luck.
I guess the most exciting thing I could share is Jordan's interest in signing. Her favorites seem to be cheese, all gone and more. Sometimes she will be looking at something and you can see she wants to communicate so she will just use a random sign she knows. So, I'm doing my best to learn more so I can teach them to her! Today she even made up her own gesture for "trash".

Nothing too exciting going on here. Big family crabbing trip next month to the Oregon Coast. Other than that, just working and spending time with DH and Alison when I am home. Alison is working on walking. She will forget to hold onto something and take a few steps but as soon as she realizes that she had let go she drops to her knees. Silly girl!
I'm in summer school so that I can take off most of the fall to be with the new baby. I have my first OB clinical tomorrow and I'm pumped. I spend the first 5 weeks in L&D and Mother Baby and then I move to the big children's hospital and do pediatrics for 5 weeks.
Tyson is working a crazy lot of days. He's home between 24-48 hours a week most weeks. He does have a vacation week at the end of June, so I'm grateful for that. We're headed to Washington (Tacoma area) for a big family wedding on 7/2 and Daphne is going to be a flower girl. She's adorable in the dress.
Kayla, good luck! I hope Jordan sleeps okay while you're away. I would worry how M would do, too. We've only spent 1 night in a hotel w/him and it didn't go great!
Jackie, now the real fun begins!!
Kristi, Go, Alison, go!
Holly, I'm looking forward to seeing party pictures. You always have such great ideas! I hope your condo sells soon. Has there been any showings?
Joy, Daphne is going to be the cutest flower girl! I bet she'll do perfect!
Julie, I'm also anxious to see party pictures from Michael's party this weekend! Will you be sneaking another positive pregnancy test in with those pictures this year? LOL
I have my 12 week OB appt this afternoon. Wish me luck!!
