If anyone has
AFM,Thanks ladies for listening to me vent. I feel much better the last few days, though yesterday was AWFUL again. Poor Maxim, I just wish his teeth would come through. And I told DH last night that I will NOT budge on getting a second car before baby #2....staying home all day with no car is driving me right insane. He got home last night and I felt so defeated and worn out from listening to my crabby baby all day...and winter is coming....sigh. We are starting swimming soon so that will help. So I escaped to the mall last night after the babe went to bed for some retail therapy and got most of my Christmas shopping done. I felt very productive, haha!
I don't have much time to write but we are going through sleep issues again. He slept well for about a month now and now the past two nights he's gotten up. I think he may be getting more teeth but also I think he may be going through a growth spurt. He has been eating so much I thought it was b/c on Saturday when he was so hungry after his illness. . I am going to try and feed him more before bed tonight so maybe he can sleep the night. I was getting used to him sleeping through the night finally. And my DH is out of town until Fri so it iwll be just me. I hope this is temporary and he doesn't get to getting up again.

Been awfully quiet around here - hope everyone is having a great weekend!
AFM - My baby girl is going to be 9 months on Monday...how the heck did that happen?!? We have her checkup next weekend. I really feel like she is moving toward being more like a toddler and less of a baby. (sniff, sniff) She is so mobile now - crawling like crazy and trying to pull up on furniture. Still no teeth yet but she
I've been able to stay sort of caught up since the posts are sent to my inbox. So here is a quick take on personals:
Cassie and Ruby: I am SO SO sorry about all the job frustration. I can't imagine all the work and time and thought you two are both putting into your searches and then getting nothing out of it. Of course I hope that you both find jobs soon. Cassie I also understand wanting to give up looking after having so many bad experiences. I hope that something still works out though.
Elyse: I love it when you make updates! It sounds like William is doing great and that switching to coaching full time will be the best for you and your family. I am sure it will be nice to be able to have William with you the whole day and to enjoy your job more. He can do so much- it is so exciting to hear about!
Sandy: I hope the sleep issues are just a temporary thing. David is going to be 1 so soon now- that is just so exciting!
Christine: I think it is great that you have been able to pump as long as you have!! I think the fact that you will still be able to nurse on-demand during morning and nights is nice. It sounds like the new job is really working out well for all of you. You sound so much less stressed! And no more horror boss stories:)
Alyssa: I hope all the tests come back good and that what happened with Evan was a one time thing.
Ella: I can't believe Eliza is a one year old now! How exciting for you:) She sounds like such a fun intelligent little girl.
Grace: I hope James is a superstar brother... I'm sure he will be, even if it takes a few weeks for him to catch on:D Your pregnancy has just flown by for me- I can't believe you will be having your second in just a few weeks. The "I know" story is so cute!
Jessica: I hope the Canada trip stuff gets cleared up. Regarding sleep Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Child was always my reference book for what was normal when it comes to sleep. That being said Teddy was still doing 90 minute to 2 hour chunks at 3 months so I can only tell you it could be much worse LOL :D
Sarah: I hope you are having a great time with the kiddos and grandparents. The pictures are adorable!
