Kate - Praying for Teddy! Hope everything checked out ok.

Ella - I SO FEEL YOUR PAIN!! We are having the exact same issues with Selin. It was SO hard when I was on our trip without DH. We were in a hotel by ourselves until DH got there (long story) and there were moments when I was *thisclose* to losing it and I could literally feel my blood pressure rising yet there was no where for me to go. Even some of my relatives were starting to get irritated with her because there were some times where she was just crying for every little thing (not her typical behavior) and wanting me to hold her all the time. At one point she said to me, "I'm sorry mommy that I'm not listening" then of course it's hard to be mad at her after that! Thank God it eased up significantly when DH arrived otherwise I might have boarded a plane by myself and headed for home, lol! Those kind of days make me question TTC #2 but I know she won't be this way forever and I don't want our kids any further apart than they're already going to be (a little over 3 years). GL and know you're not alone! Feel free to email me anytime. ;-)

Name/SO's Name: Christine/DH

Children's names and ages: Selin, will be 2-1/2 on the 22nd

Any new milestones or fun stories: Nothing really new, still talking up a storm, doing better with potty training

What are you looking forward to this month: My BFF is flying in tomorrow for a few days, TTC this weekend (eeek!!), starting at my new school in a few weeks

Just for fun, complete this phrase - "Before I had kids, I thought...I would want them close together. Ha, not anymore!"

 

AFM: We just got home from Canada last night. Overall it was a good trip but Selin really made my life hell before DH arrived. We were there for about 3 days before he arrived and she was just throwing tantrums left and right and having accidents all over the place so we had to put her back in pull-ups for most of the trip. Since we've been home she's been back on track with potty training so hope it was just a temporary setback. Once DH got there it was like she flipped a switch and was back to her normal self. She did ok on our two flights there, mainly didn't like being buckled in her own seat when we were waiting at the gate and taxiing for take-off.

I had to be up at 5:30am this morning for my new teacher orientation. Same thing tomorrow as well (ugh) and my BFF is flying in tomorrow afternoon so it's going to be a busy week. We're kayaking at our lakefront on Friday, which I'm totally psyched about.

Oh and Katja - your ticker has been added to the front page!

Andi - Wow, how interesting to find out your girls are identical NOW as opposed to earlier... is that how most people find out if twins are fraternal or identical? Through lab testing? Or is it more obvious in some twins than in others? I'm so intrigued by this whole thing...!

Kate - Do you have an update about Teddy? I've been thinking about him (and you!)!

AFM - We've been having more "are we SURE we want more kids??" days lately... Eliza at age 2 has been... difficult to say the least. Normal toddler behavior, but OHSOFRUSTRATING. I am trying so hard to keep my attitude positive and to stay calm but some days I just can't. Lately I've felt like calling my mommy every other minute, and/or running screaming out the back door. It's not that bad all the time of course - when that girl is sweet, she is SO DANG SWEET - but I think I've been letting my frustration build up and I haven't been taking enough mommy breaks and time for myself so it's been harder lately. My mom always tells me to "keep the faith", which I remind myself sooo often! I am trying to raise this girl right, and I *think* I'm doing a good job, but then there are days/weeks where she is just so frustrating and I feel like I'm failing... but it's so normal and will pass, so I just try to hold on to that.

Anyway, sorry to come in mid-month and be so negative and venty. But thanks for listening! :smileyhappy:

Ack, how is it already August 7th?

Anyway, hi ladies :smileyhappy:

Name/SO's Name: Ella (and Andy)

Children's names and ages: Eliza, 2 yrs 9 months!?

Any new milestones or fun stories: Um.... Eliza pooped on the basement floor this morning. Soooo, that was awesome. And disgusting (OMG someone please tell me that the 3s are easier... anybody???).

What are you looking forward to this month: The State Fair!

Just for fun, complete this phrase - "Before I had kids, I thought .... I knew what tired meant."

We paid for a zygosity test to be done (a private lab) - our healthcare provider wouldn't do it because it wasn't "medically necessary". It was worth paying out of pocket though. :smileyhappy:

Yah, a lot of people are like, "duh. couldn't you tell just by looking at them?" LOL

Kate - that's so scary. How's Teddy doing now? Did you take him to the dr? I agree, it must be so much easier once they can tell us what is going on/how their bodies feel!

AFM - just a quick post to let you guys know we found out the girls are in fact identical twins. It's actually been pretty crazy to process because I had thought of them in a different way for SO long! Anyway, kinda cool. :smileyhappy:  Oh, and joy of joys, Elia got thrush - geez! They are both teething an insane amount (I feel ya on that, Kate!) - the doctor who saw her today and diagnosed the thrush said all of her canines are coming through and two molars are on their way as well. That might explain why they have been such a fussy mess lately, gah!

He's not himself, but he's teething... like 3 teeth poking through kind of teething. So it's really hard to tell if he's feeling off or just teething really bad. I do like it much better when they can talk more.
