    What is new with YOU? Not much. We're going to Mexico in April. I'm super excited about that. We haven't been on a vacation like this since our honeymoon.
    How old are your LO('s)? Ava is 3 and Andrew is 2.
    What are you LO('s) doing new lately? Andrew is potty training and starting to speak a whole lot better! For a while, I was concerned that he may need some Speech Therapy, but I think he's coming along. Ava is learning to read. She is great at using her imagaination and can put together some pretty impressive puzzles alone.
    What are there current favorites? Andrew is starting to love trains and cars and tractors. He spends all day building his trains and shouting, "All aboard!" It's super cute! Ava is really into ballet and dance. Obsessed would be a better word. She wears her dance shoes all day, flips out for anything dance related and is becoming super girlie. She insists on wearing a tutu, skirt or dress over just about every outfit.
    Anything you are looking forward to in February? Andew has his 2nd Birthday party coming up on the 19th. Which is his adjusted birthday. I'm gald I prepared for it all in December, because outside of pinning a few things on Pinterest, I haven't put any effort into it.
    Do you think you are done with children or how many more would you like to have? We are done having biological children. I had a tubal ligation, Adoption is not out of the question, maybe in a few years when G's travel slows way down so he can actually be home to enjoy another baby.
    If you are preg - any cravings lately? Is DH helping out? Do my cravings count if I eat like I'm pregnant?
    If you have a newborn - what is there current sleep schedule?
    For those with children a little older - what time are they going to bed? What do you do afterwards?
    Ava is trying really hard to give up her nap. I'm trying equally hard to make her take it. If she does take a nap, they go to bed at 8pm. If she does not they go to bed at 6:30-7pm. Andrew will go down at either time, as long as he watches Ava get her routine and story first.
    What is the last movie you watched? I think it was I am number 4. I was surprised I liked it.
    Last book read? (not children's) I read The Handmaid's Tale.It was okay. I'm looking for a new book now so I'm excited to see what others are reading.
    Anything else you'd like to share? Nah, I'm pretty boring.

    What is new with YOU? A lot is going on right now. We are in the midst of trying to decide if we should move into another house. We need to buy a new car, which means selling my car. I'm super sad about that, btw. I love my car so much. We are, of course, preparing for a new arrival in June. You hear that uterus?? JUNE. Hmmm, I guess that's it?

    How old are your LO('s)? Jordan is getting closer and closer to two. Crazy. Our other babe is at about 18 weeks gestation.

    What are you LO('s) doing new lately? Jordan is talking, talking, talking. The language explosion has been blowing us away for the last couple of months. She is really starting to learn her colors and recognizing more shapes. She loves to read her books and to have us read to her. Some days I think we read 20 books throughout the course of the day.

    What are there current favorites? I think I would have to go with books and her new bath crayons. I have to admit that I love her bath crayons too!

    Anything you are looking forward to in February? Yes! Our mini baby moon at the end of the month. I'm already a little nervous about leaving Jordan for the night but I really hope we can enjoy some quiet time together before things get even more busy.

    Do you think you are done with children or how many more would you like to have? Good question. In my heart, I feel like we are only cut out for two. However, I would still love to adopt. I guess we will have to wait and see.

    If you are preg - any cravings lately? Is DH helping out? I was craving salads for a long time but that has subsided a little. I was not craving any sweets or fried foods but that is slowly changing. My cravings can change from day to day but a shake sounds really good right now. - Jason is helping out a lot. He has pretty much taken over washing dishes and helps me grocery shop on the weekends. He will also run random errands for me. I let him carry Jordan a lot more as well.

    If you have a newborn - what is there current sleep schedule?

    For those with children a little older - what time are they going to bed? What do you do afterwards? Jordan goes to bed about 8:45 to 9:00. After she goes to bed I get on the internet, watch TV, hang out with Jason, etc. Most importantly, I relax.

    What is the last movie you watched? Our Idiot Brother was the last new movie I watched. We had a free Direct TV movie voucher and so I picked that one because I love Paul Rudd. It was ok but not my favorite thing he has been in. The last movie I actually watched was Pretty in Pink on DVD the other day.

    Last book read? (not children's) Jane Eyre

    Anything else you'd like to share? I feel like an old woman. Last night I was limping around b/c of sciatic pain and then I kept waking up during the night because my hips hurt so bad. My lower back seems to be hurting a lot too, even when I try really hard to watch my posture. I know this is all temporary but I cannot believe how weak it makes me feel!

    What is new with YOU? Not much really. Started attending Stroller Strides and a Breastfeeding playgroup here in Wichita Falls. Feels nice to be active again, though I'm very tried of not having my stuff and living out of boxes.
    How old are your LO('s)? 15 months tomorrow!
    What are you LO('s) doing new lately? Locking doors. Locking himself into rooms making me panic. Fun stuff.
    What are there current favorites? Wood blocks, BOOKS, and wood puzzles.
    Anything you are looking forward to in February? Not really. Just trying to survive the month.
    Do you think you are done with children or how many more would you like to have? We're TTC #2. We're undecided past that. I want 3 or 4, DH right now won't commit past 2. lol

    For those with children a little older - what time are they going to bed? What do you do afterwards? We let Aiden flex his schedule right now since it's easier with all the moving and changes we've had. He goes down anywhere between 7pm and 9:30pm, though 8-8:30pm is most common. And I typically catch up on FB, email, forums, and pinterest at night. DH is currently not getting home till late and he goes to bed about an hour after getting home.
    What is the last movie you watched? The Help. Rented it a few weeks ago.
    Last book read? (not children's) Just finished the 3rd in The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, last night!
    Anything else you'd like to share? Just counting down till we move March 8th.

    My mom and sisters have all just read The Night Circus. They all liked it so it's on my list to read. Along with The Hunger Games series, which I know you've started.

    What is new with YOU? Kind of sad to say...nothing much. Letting my hair grow out. HA!
    How old are your LO('s)? Good grief, she is almost 2...where has the time gone?
    What are you LO('s) doing new lately? She knows most of her colors!!! I was totally surprised by this and she to help sweep!
    What are there current favorites? Tortilla chips, Sesame Street, the playground.
    Anything you are looking forward to in February? Tax returns!!!
    Do you think you are done with children or how many more would you like to have? We go back and forth on this. We would really like Alison to have a brother or a sister but pregnancy is just so scary for me. I am just scared to do it again.
    If you are preg - any cravings lately? Is DH helping out? Not pregnant.
    If you have a newborn - what is there current sleep schedule? No newborns.
    For those with children a little older - what time are they going to bed? What do you do afterwards? Alison goes to bed around 8pm and I am going to be honest and say that I am pretty close behind her. I have to get up for work at 5:30 so I need sleep!
    What is the last movie you watched? Hmmm....Alison wanted to watch the Muppets Take Manhattan, so I think that is the last one.
    Last book read? (not children's) The Hunger Games
    Anything else you'd like to share? Going to the zoo this weekend! Can't wait!

    I'll have to add The Night Circus to my requests at the library! Thanks for the rec. I started and finished all 3 Hunger Game books in the same week. the first and thrid one I read in one sitting (who needs sleep?!) and the 2nd I did in two sittings. They were great! I cannot wait until the movie comes out! That is one I'll actually see in the theater!

    I have a ridiculous fear of movie theaters but still want to see it when it comes out in March! I might have to take a Xanax, but I want to see it! HA!

    That is an odd fear, Kristi. Although I am not one to judge. I have irrational fears too. I don't go to movie theaters because I'm too cheap. I have no problem waiting until movies come out on video. But, Hunger Games I want to see opening night!
