WOW! I love checking in to see what's going on with you girls! So much has changed just since the last time :)

AFM: Just staying super-busy as all of you know what life with a toddler is like! We've been in our new house now for about 4 months and are finally starting to feel a little settled. We had a sewer pipe back up into our house last week and flood everything. Luckily it was "clean" toilet water, lol. But we still had to have giant fans and dehumidifiers to dry everything out. And now we have to replace the carpet/hardwoods. Thank goodness that the contractor who installed the sewer system in our subdivision is claiming responsibility and paying for everything since our homeowners will not.

While all that was going on, Lucy got really sick (flu that turned to pneumonia) and we had to stay at the hospital. She's feeling MUCH better now, thank goodness. When your baby gets sick, do you ever feel like bf'ing let you down? Haha, I'm such a huge advocate for BFing and I feel like it should offer her immunity for life, lol!

I really have baby fever, but our plan is to wait until this spring/summer to try again to try to time it like Lucy (Spring baby since I'm a teacher). Although, I know that we may not be as lucky as we were the first time.

Here's a recent picture! Hope everyone is doing good!! 013 fb.jpg

So great to hear from you, Heather! I can't believe how much Lucy has grown, what a cutie!

Sorry about the sewer backup (yuck!) but glad the contractor is fixing it.

We're also planning to start TTC #2 this spring to aim for a winter/spring 2013 baby since I'm a teacher now. :-)

Hi, Heather! I know what you mean about the breastfeeding. When Charlotte got an ear infection last month, I was like "hey, she's breastfeeding! No fair." I know it's silly, but I expect perfect health ;)

Lucy is adorable!
