Julia isn't a complainer when she is sick either.

Unfortunately Leah and DH aren't doing much better. But Leah is not crabby, other than the fact that she's having trouble nursing on one side (I compensate by holding her a different way). She's just a happy baby. We were well enough to work the nursery in church, and it ended up being a relatively light day in there (only two other kids besides ours). And those kids were a little sick too!

Its great to see your kids learning things like that. It amazes me to see Andrew put ideas together, and Julia's even older, so it must be even more interesting.

I think I hear a baby crying. I better run. I mainly logged on to say it was great praying and chatting with you these past two months!

I didn't realize you've had your DH at home for a few days - has he given you any relief from the kids? I saw that you guys has a coffee date - I hope that was nice. What does he do?

My DH gets to "work" today too - meeting with that couple. Also yesterday, he scheduled an appointment for me and him to meet with one of his former "clients". When he was just starting out, a financial advisor we knew took Dale along to meet a couple he was helping out. They were married at the time, but now they are divorcing, and she asked us to give her some advice (I come along when DH meets with single women).

Yeah, I definitely wouldn't leave $2000 in a box out in the open like that! Hopefully you can connect this weekend.

Andrew and I are improving from our colds. I slept through the night without any meds, so that's definitely good! DH is worse though and Leah seems a tiny bit worse too. But hopefully we'll all be better by Sunday, since DH and I are working the nursery at church again.

That's cute that Julia wants to see the new Aldi. Funny how girls are different than boys that way. Leah is 5 months old, but I think she actually likes hanging out in her bouncer in the kitchen when I cook or clean.

So much to do at work today - ugh. Losing those few hours so I could sleep extra made me fall further behind at work, but the extra sleep definitely helped me get better from this cold!

My DH was nervous about having kids too. By the time we got to TTC (after I got the go-ahead medically), I was 31, so we couldn't really put it off anymore.

I hope you finally get a hold of that lady! Sheesh!

That's funny that they would cancel school just to use up a calamity day. You never know what kind of crazy snow storms you might get in March! That's how it is out here, anyway.

So now I'm sick too, and Leah and DH are getting it. Andrew is improving. I'm actually doing much better than yesterday - I'm surviving without cold meds. The pedi told me I could take certain things while BFing, but she didn't tell me that with Andrew (I think because she had her own babies after Andrew was born - you probably become less strict when you feel miserable yourself) but I'm still trying to avoid too much medicine. I went to bed early last night and slept in today, so maybe that helped. I'm behind on work, but I can't really function when I feel like this.

I better go wake Andrew up from his nap - can't have him sleeping too long too close to bedtime!

I totally know what you mean about DH being happy about having a kid. Sometimes I tease DH that I tricked him into getting pregnant with Andrew. We made the decision to TTC together, and it took 6 months to get pregnant, but it was still earlier than he expected I guess. Of course he loves Andrew!

I could understand diagonal lines beingn difficult. I also understand wanting to do something quickly and getting frustrated if it doesn't get done quickly. (I think that's true of me and I'm 35!)

Unfortunately, I didn't get much done during the naps. Leah and Andrew's naps only overlapped by 45 minutes. In that time, I caught up on email and made a batch of brownies. When Leah woke up, I put her in the swing for 10-15 minutes, and I managed to do a few little things then. It is definitely hard trying to work from home around kids naps. Sometimes I really wish I could get more help on those days, but I hate asking DH. But when I tell him I want help, he says he'll help me, but I don't want to burn him out.

You may be right about this leading to another job for DH someday. A couple of nice things about this "job" - one is that a previous client referred him. That's awesome when someone thinks so much of you that they refer you! The other is that DH didn't feel the pressure to be a salesman, he just helped them. That's much more his style.

That is so frustrating about that lady not getting back to you! It drives me nuts when people don't respond quicklky when there is a deadilne. I deal with that A LOT at work - a lot of people here are procrastinators, and I am not!

Poor little Andrew was a tiny bit better yesterday. He ate, which he didn't do much of the day before. But he mainly wanted to cuddle and sit in our laps when eating, which is fine except when I need to nurse Leah. He got upset at one point when he wanted to cuddle and I was holding Leah.

Funny story about nursing. I nurse Leah on the couch in the family room, and Andrew always sees it. Yesterday he pointed at my breasts and said "sha-chek". We couldn't figure out at first what he was saying but we think we figured it out. The Polish word for penis is "shooshachek" (that is spelled wrong but phonetically). That's the word we use for it because I hate all the English names for it. So we think he thought my nipples were that!
