Hi Everyone-

Madeline turned two on New Years Eve, and I still cannot believe it. I feels like yesterday I was staring at the clock in the hospital, watching midnight roll around.

We had a wonderful weekend with a quiet birthday celebration on Friday, and then a big party on Sunday. Madeline had a wonderful time, and loved all of the visitors, especially Elmo, who stopped by too! :)

She is doing great with everything now. Her speech has caught up (if you remember, I was worried at about 19 months because she didn't like to talk very much). She has started speaking in two-word sentences now and has a wide vocabulary. She likes to do everything on her own, and one of her favorite words is "mine". She decided last week that she wanted to try and go on the potty, so we pulled the one out we bought for her, and have been letting her sit on it whenever she wants. We aren't offically potty training, because I don't think she is ready (doesn't mind having a wet diaper), but I figured getting used to it can't hurt.

Next hurdles, weaning and getting rid of night-time binky. Both will be tough. But, overall, she is a sweet and even-tempered little one, so even her bad days aren't too bad yet.

Attached is a pic from her recent birthday. :-)bdaypics2.jpg

Wow, she is so cute! Congrats on reaching the 2-year-old milestone. If yours is anything like mine was at that age, they are never cuter - or more challenging! :-)

Best,

Oh my gosh, she is such a cutie!!! Time fly's huh? Your daughter has the same birthday that my grandmother did! I am glad she enjoyed her party. I am planning my daughters 1st b-day as we speak. I can't believe it either!

Enjoy that precious little girl!

Hi Stefanie,

I don't know if you remember me, we cycled around the same time back at the end of 2008.

Hi Chris-

So good to hear from you!! Happy 2nd B-day to your little boy (a little belated).

I am so sorry to hear about your m/c. I know what you are feeling. I have been OK overall through mine, but the holidays were a little tough and Madeline's little playdate friend's mom announced she was PG and due 10 days after my baby would have been. It has been tough seeing her go through the PG knowing where I should be. I am sending ((HUGS)) to you guys as well.

Good luck on your next cycle!! I hope it brings you a healthy PG. I will being doing an FET in May--my only embie left--and am hoping for happy results as well.

Please keep me posted on how everything goes for you!! :-)
