Hello, June

I just looked at the date of my last post and was like, WOAH. Hi there. It's June!

I know we all go through this, but I'm at a point where I don't "need" this community as much as I did before. I love to keep updated on what's going on with people and I've become Fa.cebook friends with some of you so that helps. I just don't need the ongoing support in the way that I did when I was pregnant and terrified.

The two kiddos have been keeping me quite busy. Hard to believe that D will be turning four and E will be ONE in July! The year has sped by.

E is crawling at the speed of light and loves to pull up on things. She's not quite furniture walking yet, but she's getting close. She still has only two teeth, but she's doing pretty well with mashing soft food between her gums. I've been making all of her baby food so I'm trying to get a little more creative with what I feed her so that she won't be a picky toddler. D loves fruit and veggies, but his palate is not as developed as I would like and I blame myself for some of that. Hoping to keep E more open to flavors!

D is getting ready to finish up his first year of preschool. He's such a good big brother in so many ways. He and E adore each other, though D does have some issues with jealousy over my needing to tend to E for obvious things she can't do for herself. We're looking forward to trying to teach him to ride a bike with training wheels this summer and hopefully get him in the water on our family vacation.

T and I are doing great. I'm down a little below my pre-pregnancy weight after the sevent.een da.y d.iet adventure that I talked about a few posts ago. (It worked pretty well for us, but was very restrictive, and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to anyone.) He lost about 25 lbs. (men... though he did have more to lose than I did.) We went away for a three day trip to VT to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary. Had such a nice time. My MIL and FIL stayed with the kids. So nice!

We've tossed the idea of "one more" back and forth and it makes me excited and nervous at the same time. The uncertainty of miscarriage makes it much more complicated. We're still undecided, but don't want to wait too long either, if we decide that's what we want. We want to be DONE with diapers when we're done, you know??!! :)

Hi! Have another, have another. Can you make one for me too, please?

I cannot believe E is already going to be one(!) in July. Seems like she's still around 4 months old.

So happy to know that everything is going great for you and your family.

Don't remember the diet post but either way good job!! I'm so over restrictive diets! Starting to wean Adelyn on Fri...yay pizza soon!!

We have been talking a lot about another too. I am terrified but trying to remain faithful & trust that all will go smoothly, because if I don't I get sick just thinking about it!

I hope you keep your blog so that you can share any future news!!

Wow time has flown by! I feel like we were just emailing about nursing!

My son is 2, my daughter will be 1 on Thursday and I am. 5 wks pregnant after our final FET with our last 2 embryos. I also suffered a miscarriage after a surprise natural BFP (nursing and severe male factor) 3 months ago.

Keep us updated!

Glad to hear life is treating you and the family well. It's astonishing to think our babies are approaching the 1 year mark!

Glad to hear you're doing well! Can't believe you're thinking about another already, I'm still focused on this one :) We're planning to wait until late next year so we can have some quality time with our little guy before we add to the chaos :)

Good to hear from you!!! I know the feeling about not really keeping up with posting but do come on once and a while and keep us posted! Sounds like life is just wonderful. And so it should be ;)
