Amy- I think when they are little we might put David in the other bedroom just so the baby doesn't wake him up constantly. He's not the best sleeper and I would be afraid that

Wowsa, so first of all, let me say major props to Katie because my DH was out of town all last week for work and I thought I'd claw off my own face by the end of it all - single mommas rock, I have no idea how you do it on your own! And now, let me try to catch up...
Andi- The game is this weekend. And the Colts fans are the nicest in football or so I have been told. I mean people may say something to you but they aren't like other fans if you wear the opposiing uniform. I heard it is one of the most family friendly football stadiums. I wouldn't feel bad about taking David when he's older. Now, Cleveland on the other hand I would not. They can get quite roudy there even though they supposedly have a family friendly section.
Now if you went to Cleveland with a Pittsburgh jersey or vice versa then you might get yourself shot. But in Indianapolis I'm not too worried about it.
Also I have been there being on my own. Of course I do not have twins and I admire you did it with twins. He went on a business trip to Texas 3 weeks after David was born. He was starting to get colicky and I thought I was going to pull my hair out. I spent many nights on the phone with him crying as David would not stop crying. And I have no family in town and they were all sick with colds anyway. So, I also do admire you single moms. It's a tough job with two parents let alone one.
Em - Let me know how you like the recipe! My daughter's name is Turkish (my DH is Turkish) and pronounced in English like "Celine". In Turkish, the "se" is more ephasized than the "lin", if that makes any sense. :-)
AFM - I'm having the week from h**l and on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Over the weekend, Selin got another red MRSA bump but thankfully, it looks like it's getting better and not turning into another abscess. But as a courtesy, I emailed my sitter/friend on Sunday to let her know and that I was putting ointment on it and doing the bleach baths, etc. Then all hell broke loose.
Apparently, we were both misinformed: she didn't no Selin's MRSA was an ongoing thing and I didn't know that she is on medication that suppresses her immune system and since she is still nursing, her son has the same issue. So MRSA could be very deadly for them. She said if they didn't have the immune system issue then she would have no problem with it but since that is not the case, I would have to find someone else to care for her. I
Christine, oh what a day! I hope you guys are able to find someone to watch Selin ASAP! That would be stresful. My folks are out of town all week and I cross my fingers Simon doesn't get sick this week.
