Please let me know if your info needs to be updated!
Kate- Glad you'll be there with me. I am still aiming for September but we'll see. My regular doctor wants me off BCP in July no matter if we are TTC or not due to my blood pressure so if we are not TTC in September we'll have to use other BC until he is ready to TTC. I already told him so he knows.
Christine- I've been there with DH gone (mine has only been gone a week ) when he has had conferences and he is going to have another one this year in March if he's still at his job. You are lucky to have family nearby. It will be just me and David for the whole week with no other help.
Erica- I don't want to hear how cold it is in Florida...Just kidding. My MIL was complaining to my DH and he said I don't want to hear it.

Mari - Gabby was like that when I used to drop her off the first 4 or 5 days were tough, but after I left she was fine. I know it's probably a bit different since he has been home with you more than Gabby has. The first couple of days she would cling to my leg and they would have to pry her off and then they said she was fine 2 minutes later. Today We go into the room (its the start of her 3rd week there) and her teacher is there and said Hello and she went running to her and gave her a hug! I loved it! Made me feel so great!! Kate - WE didn't get Gabby much for her birthday. I figured she would get more from others. We ended up getting her a stuffed animal and an outfit. I hope you can find some motivation to get everything done you need to get done.Liz - I had almost the same conversation with Gabby yesterday. SHe kept saying no to me and I said are you going to say no to everything and she said "no" I cracked up....I know I posted about this before, but I added it to my blog last night. so check it out: http://jessica-mike.blogspot.com/2012/02/reasoning-with-17-month-old.htmlWaving hi to everyone else...sorry I am going off of memory.
AFM - Just waiting for AF to leave. I have some OPK's and I am taking B6 so hopefully we can pin down when I am O'ing....I really would love a november baby - would be nice before winter got here. I don't know if I want to drive a 1/2 hour in a blizzard to get to the hospital, but we will see. At least I can go to my friends wedding and not be a total blimp!Our house is coming along, it's been a bit slow but hopefully this week it will pick up. The furance, electical and insultation should be done this week and the drywall and stuff should start next week. I am excited to have our front door on and the garage door on. plus it will be warmer in the house. OUr heating bill has been so high. Especially last week when it was -10 outside.Gabby is doing great! She is LOVING her new daycare and adjusting super well. and like I said above she is giving hugs to teachers in the morning now. She is talking up a storm. I had her saying Pretty Pretty please yesterday (at least it sounded like it) and she is starting to say "ov you" and we are working on the sign for it as well.
Ella - I should clarify. We have a front door so our house is mainly sealed off. there are just cracks in some of the walls and under the door where the front entry gets a little cold.
Ugh, I'm in a funkdified monday mood too. It's raining here which I'm sure is part of it (though I can't complain because it sounds like it's MUCH colder in florida AND indianapolis)
Ruby- I know you probably don't think this but I think you're fortunate that your DH wants to TTC. I have baby fever so bad and I wish we could TTC right now but other than finances and I know it's not the right time, my DH said he isn't ready yet. He was the same way before David, he wasn't ready. Now he wants David to be at least 3.5. I would have been happy with 3 but I don't want to fight about it and now all with his job I am not going to say anything until around the end of July and see where things stand.
Also regarding his job he thinks his boss is on the hot seat so he's got an attitude towards everyone else. He found that out through someone else at work. He's still applying for jobs and we'll see what's out there and what he decides to do. I hope if he does change it's in the next few months and we don't have to pospone TTC again. But I guess we'll see. I guess what is meant to be is and we'll deal with it when it happens. No sense in worrying when it's not until the end of the year.
I hate teething. David was up again last night. Although I find it funny I still have baby fever even though David's been getting up with the teething. You would think it would be opposite. I hope this tooth comes in soon as I'm sick of getting up with him at night. At least I got him to stay in his bed, he always wants to come to our bed but not letting him make a habit of it.
DH and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. He thinks it's just a hallmark holdiay and you can show love all days of the year. I will make dinner for him (lasagna) as I make it every year. Kind of my traditional Valentine's day dinner.
