Sarah, what a sweet conversation! He knows his stuff. :) Our homeschool meeting last night was so fun and SO exciting! I can't wait to get started.

Christine, I'm really sorry about the job. Hang in there, friend.

Emmy, we like our 3 year spacing. Fletcher turned 3 one month after Jonah was born, and Charlotte was born about three weeks before Jonah turned three. That was our preferred spacing to begin with, and it worked out. My sister and I are three years apart, and I thought it was ideal. HOWEVER, I can totally imagine a 2 year gap. If we planned a 4th baby, I think I would even choose a slightly closer spacing only because I wonder if the jealousy factor might be a little less. Fletcher wasn't jealous at all (or didn't show it!), but Jonah is still struggling.

Omg, I just typed this whole darn thing out, and then I accidently clicked a link and lost it all. Ughh.

Andi- we are right in there with you. Max's second tooth just popped through but I think he's working on at least 2 more.

Erica- Are you homeschooling Fletcher, too, or just Jonah? I can't remember. My mom's college friend homeschooled all 5 of her kids through elementary. I don't think I have enough discipline to stay on task, though.

Christine- I'm so sorry about the interview. That makes me nervous because I just had an interview on Friday and she showed me around and introduced me to everyone.

AFM- As I said, Max got his top right middle tooth on Sunday, so now he has that one and the bottom right middle. He will let go of stuff while standing for a second or two now before he sits on his butt. I think he's scared of falling or he'd be stepping. I don't get it though, because he is not afraid to jump off the couch or bed lol.

Our trip to Texas went as well as I could have hoped. The drive down was flawless. The drive back was a little more tedious, though, because his sleep schedule got messed up while we were there. We had a lot of fun. We saw the Alamo and the Mexican border and went to South Padre Island and stuck our feet in the Gulf of Mexico.

Andi,

Maxim weaned from the breast at 13 months and the bottle at 14 months, once he learned the cup. Personally, if you think thats what it may be, I would totally run with it and dont force her. It will be easier now to wean her when it seems that she's going that route now, than when she's older!!

Andi- David weaned at 7.5 months. He just wasn't interested anymore. But also around the same time I couldn't get any milk out either when I was pumping. So I think that might have something to do with it. I think I was losing my milk.

Sandy- I think a pendant (to do qith the old set) is a good idea.
Sarah- OMG!!! That conversation was hilarious!!
Andi- She could be self weaning... but it could also be some sort of "phase"... I say you should keep offering her fruits and other juicy stuff (to keep her hydrated) and try to offer milk every few days, she might go back to it. Also, Fede's pedi allowed plain cow's milk as soon as he was a year old, and he loves it!

Waving "hi" to everyone else!!!

Sandy - Could you maybe have both sets melted down (if they're both yellow gold) and have a new wedding ring set made out of the combined gold and whatever stone(s) you want to use, and then maybe have something else made out of the rest?

I'm pretty sentimental about my wedding ring & engagement ring and if I couldn't wear them for some reason, I'd like to have at least part of them IN whatever I was wearing, if that makes sense?

Either way, the ring in the pic is very beautiful.

Thanks for the replies about the self-weaning thing girls! Our dr emailed me back and said "sounds like self-weaning behavior - GREAT!" We just need to make sure to get 16oz of formula into her each day (through sippy cups or in her oatmeal or whatever) but there's no need to bother with the bottle anymore. It complicates feedings a little bit because here I am trying to help juliette self-feed and deal with a sippy cup while simultaneously feeding elia a bottle. I may try to start weaning her soon too just to make it easier. Ah life with twins. ;)
