Jessica- Sorry you are leaving. We'll all miss you.

Anyway I wanted to update you with a cute little post and then I have to get back to work. David has a book that has all kind of words in it. Well when he got to baby he asked for a baby sister. I was shocked he even knew how to say that. I'm wondering it's because him and the girl at daycare have become such good friends. He kept asking me all weekend if we were going over there and then she was telling me her daughter was asking about David. I guess he wants a little sister to play with. Of course he doesn't understand proabably he won't be able to play with her until she gets older but by the time we have another he'll probably understand. She also has a little boy who is 6 months old and she's told me he's done really well with him. I hope he's not upset if he gets a brother instead of a sister since I obviously have no choice in the matter.

Sarah- Yuck, I am sorry that you are still feeling sick. I hope that you will be feeling much better before you know it. Happy Birthday to Eloise! Wow, it sounds like Sully is quite the talker. Brycen is only saying a few words now.

Carly- I agree, it is great to see you posting around here again.

Katie- I can't believe that Z is already walking, or just about. He is just a baby on a mission, isn't he?

Carly: I can see where your FI and you are coming from. There is/was 8 years between me and my youngest brother (he past 3 years ago this month), and I think I learned a lot from that. I really don't remember him as a small baby, but I remember him in my teenage years, then I resented him because I was always having to babysit him, then we lost touch when I went away to college and moved out. Based on those experiences and now knowing I'll never have a relationship with him I'm molded how Ray and Teddy get along. I try and find as many common things as possible for them to do, and I make sure I carve out time alone for them... and I've vowed to never turn Ray into a free babysitter, but will use babysitting as a allowance type chore in the future, weighing his needs with family needs.

I have 2 other brothers that are closer to my age and 14 months apart in age, and they have never gotten along... so I really don't believe in age gaps being what makes and breaks relationships.

Most of the stress comes from not being able to gear a whole , day or activity to one age (intellectually, stamina, naps, etc).

katie - no TTC date. we don't even have a wedding date yet. :( waiting till i have a job to set the date for the wedding, and after that happens and we find a place to live after our lease is done on this place (and we signed a 2-year lease, so not till end of august 2013), then we'll re-evaluate our situation and figure out what's a good time frame. probably 2 years from now at a minimum, might be more like 3. i really don't want to wait too long because the age gap between tad and theoretical kiddo #2 is just getting bigger and bigger, and neither of us is getting any younger. not that either of us is old by any stretch of the imagination, but...i dunno, i still want to have some spring left in my step when the kids are grown and out of the house, KWIM? and FI is ahead of me by a couple years.

kate - speaking of age differences, lol. how well to ray and teddy get along usually? FI is 7.5 years older than his younger brother and claims he doesn't remember a whole lot of the particulars of when his brother was young. i smile looking at your siggy because looking through a lot of FI's mom's photo albums, there are a lot of pictures like that of FI and his brother. i've always been afraid of having kids with a large age gap because my sister and i (18m apart) are very close, but i have crappy memories of being used as free babysitting for my brothers (my dad's kids with his second wife...i was 11 when the first was born and almost 14 when the second was born) among other things. i recognize that this is poor parenting on my dad's part, not a direct result of the large age gap, but good stories from parents of kids with larger age gaps are always welcome!

We're thinking about TTC later this year -winterish, as we really don't want another winter birthday... I feel Sarah's pain in regards to the birthday marathon, especially with Ray's being after Christmas. We'd also like another one before Teddy is out of the baby stage. Don't get me wrong, I love the age gap between Ray and Teddy - but it's hard sometimes with the 8 year old frame of mind one minute and the baby frame of mind the next.

Grace: I'm glad all is going well overall with adjusting, sorry about all the sickness... I love reading your blog.

Cassie: I hope you and DH are under one roof sooner rather that later... wishing you all the best in what you need to do to get there.

AFM - I'm on CD30 now... blah!!! I really thought AF would have been here already, my last 2 cycles were 26 days like clockwork (after 5 very irregular cycles)... I had wicked cramping on CD25 and 26 and now nothing...it's almost like AF came without the F. I was suppose to start back on the mini-pill when AF came this time... so I really want her to get here. Blah!!! Suppose I'll call my DR in a few days if nothing happens.
