    Okay, so it's been FOREVER since I updated lol I'm not even sure when my last post was. A lot of you have kept up with me on facebook, but for those who haven't, here's whats up with us!

    Casper just turned 7 in March, we have now graduated to conveniently forgetting to bring homework home and the battle to get up for school in the morning.
    Raider just turned 3 in February, he's going to a special preschool to help him with his speech because he's not talking at the level he should be just yet. But they're both super cute and keep us busy.

    My partner Carrie and I are looking at TTC#3 via reciprocal IVF which is what brings me back to the boards.
    I look forward to catching up with all of you I've known for the last 8 years or so and getting to know the more recent newcomers!



    Raider (3)


    Casper (7)

    Yes, Jackie -- that's what happens when that second baby comes along! Harder to do EVERYTHING!

    California is out. I really really liked it there! So much to see and do! A different scenery every 30 miles or so. So different than Florida. The weather in the bay area is perfect. I'm a little sad and disappointed and so is my hubby but he is handling it well. I'm also relieved. I'd be all alone out there! No family, friends, help or babysitters! So I told him that if he really wanted it to make it a long term goal. Unfortunately Google doesn't tell you why you didn't get the job...nada. So he isn't sure what to improve upon. I did get some good news from our landlord. He is lowering the rent $50 because we are "good tenants." Every bit helps! So Grace will be at a brand new charter school 5 miles from our house for kindergarten. So life is good!

    Sorry to hear that! I'm glad you guys are handling it well. Being away from family when the kids are so little (and are used to them!) would be really difficult. Everything happens for a reason, right?! And $50 less on your rent, that's awesome!



    Crystal ~ When do you expect for start IVF? The board has been pretty quiet lately, but keep us posted on your progress! I hope you'll just need 1 cycle!

    Thanks Ashley!

    We have a few things to get in order before we can get started, Carrie's mom got laid off a while back and we've been helping her get back on her feet, so hopefully a few more months or so and we can really get started. We still have to choose a clinic, a doctor and find out how much it's going to cost so we have plenty of planning to keep us busy until then.

    Hi Crystal - I hope IVF goes smoothly for you two. Definitely keep us posted.

    Beth - I'm sorry CA didn't work out but I'm glad your landlord is giving you a break. Sounds like so many good things to keep you in FL anyway!
