I Suppose It All Started With The Snow

How has it been this long since I’ve blogged? Many apologies friends! Bullets to update you, and promises for lengthier posts to come!!

  • No internet at our place right now – PLUS – Lach dropped my cell in the toilet….so no F.acebook updates or quick blog posts via that.
  • Lachlan turned 11 months old a few days ago and is walking more and more every day.  He stands up and walks all by himself – sometimes across the whole room, and then falls on his knees.  He is fearless and getting much steadier on his little feet.
  • We have a tooth! Have I told you guys this yet??? Well, it’s 1/2 way through the gums….and it is SHARP! It seems the the little sucker cut me by mistake (not intentionally biting me) and I ended up with a bleedy mess of a nipple.  Sorry for the mental picture.  But, no worries, L.anolin saved the day.
  • Lach has never been too interested in TV.  That was, of course, before we turned on F.rosty T.he S.nowman (circa 1969).  He adores it and stands way too close in front of the TV dancing away.  It just may be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.  It is only 25 minutes in length, and we watched it a whole 52 times over the Thanksgiving weekend.  I go to bed with “Voila, the eggs have turned into… messy, messy, messy!” playing on repeat in my head.
  • Stockings are out and the Christmas tree is UP! We went with a pre-lit (did I mention how I much I love NOT stringing the lights myself?) 9 ft tree. It’s beautiful, and looks so nice with all the decorations on it.  I’m really getting excited for the holidays.  Remember last year? I certainly thought we’d have our boy for Christmas Day.  All those cute little “baby’s 1st christmas” outfits gone to waste.  I was so disappointed.  You can’t exactly find those in 12-18 mos sizes.  I can’t wait to celebrate this year!
  • Donor talk.  We hadn’t talked to our KD about baby #2 at all since we originally were starting this whole process to conceive Lach.  KD knew we wanted another at some point in the future, but didn’t know the time frame. Well, last week after chit-chat, I said….”So….I wanted to talk to you about BABY NO. 2″….He looked all surprised and said, “REALLY?”. After a brief talk he said he’s game! (provided I ovulate again of course)! We are getting him re-tested for HIV, stds, later THIS week! Provided all good results come back in time – we’re TTC baby #2 in a week or two!  Let the temping, charting, poas, tww’s and general craziness begin!
  • Send your labour vibes to Lynn over at Family Style Love. She is expecting baby #2 any minute now.  Hoping she has another incredible homebirth!

  1. I can’t believe how fast time has gone! 11 months already? I feel like I was just blog-stalking you as you were about to give birth!

    Love the pictures.

  2. I remember last year and how sad you were that he didn’t arrive before xmas. I can’t believe its been almost one whole year! Lovely tree and good luck with #2!!!

  3. The tree is beautiful! Harris likes to stand with his nose practically touching the tv sometimes… I am always afraid that he will get a headache, but no matter how many times I pull him back, he just keeps going up to it! Thanks for the labor vibes shout-out! I am ready to meet our wee one!

  4. YAYYY!!! We’re very excited that you’ll be TTC’ing at the same time as us again. Very happy 🙂 We just did try #3, but only got one insem in because Jen got really sick, so, we’re not expecting it to take. Hey, I had to ask, so, does this mean that Lach is no longer afraid of Elmo????
