Janeeeeeen! He has the sweetest little face. :wub:

Wow ... I've been away for a while and so much to catch up to!
Janeen, I don't know if I said it elsewhere but congrats! James is beautiful!
I'm sure Soren is also beautiful but I haven't peeked in that thread yet. Will do.
Bridget, my heart goes out to you.
About food - with DH gone I've lost my house husband and well, he did all the cooking both because he likes to cook, he was home all the time, and we have a totally dysfunctional kitchen that we planned to remodel before he lost his job. So with him gone, I have a microwave, toaster oven, and a hot plate that has long outlived its usefulness and needs to be replaced. Oh, and a grill, but that scares me. I really don't know how to and I'm just not in the habit of working and cooking for one. Would LOVE some tips/pointers/motivation. Lately I've been living on take-out Mexican food, frozen dinners / canned soup, and meals from the buffet counter at the local specialty grocery store. Have to stop. Although now we have two salaries I can probably afford it, but besides being not all that good for me it's such a time waster. Ick!
Can you get your hands on a slow-cooker? Then you could pretty easily makes stews/soups that could last through several meals.
This is a good idea ... I was also thinking maybe a George Foreman grill? Then add a new hot plate and it's a lot of $ in appliances but probably worth it in the long run. At least until we get the kitchen done which hopefully will happen this summer.
Yes! Slow cooker. Every hunk of meat I have to cook I look up a crock pot recipe.
Wow, you were allowed to have that stuff in college? (or did you live off campus)
Janeen and Lydia, your cute babies are making me yearn for another. So NOT in the cards for me right now but maybe if I could just come over and hold your babies for awhile....:P I was brainstorming last night thinking if I leave dbf real quick and go have a one night stand....I'M KIDDING.
Like Savana always says, "My thinks aren't real so I can think whatever I want."
My husband really hurt my feelings last night. Things had gotten a lot better lately, and I started to think we were going to be ok after all. We probably will be, but over the weekend I mentioned getting a small wedding cake for us for our anniversary this year as we didn't have one when we got married. We had been married by the JP and only our mothers were there. No party, nothing. It's ok-I'm fine with that...but I thought having a wedding cake to celebrate now would be kinda nice. Plus-I was watching a wedding cake show when the thought came to me :D
Anyway, when I mentioned it again last night, he had zero recollection of the entire conversation. It was like I was coming out of left field with the concept. :( I just don't understand how we could have such a serious talk about something that important and have it not register with him at all. To me, it says a lot about his feelings on the topic. I can't help but be hurt.
I'm sorry. I sooo hate it when whatever else is going on in their head takes precedence over a conversation with their wife. I have to get Danny looking at me, in the eye sometimes, and repeating what I've said. It would totally hurt my feelings too, if he was just totally blowing off something that was important to me like that. :pokey: to your dh right now.
I've just woken up from a nap (I laid down when Travis took his nap) and I feel so groggy. I need to go grocery shopping, but I'm going to sit here for a bit until I feel like going out. LOL....need more sleep.
I confess that I almost dropped the baby last night. :shock:
I started falling asleep after he had unlatched and apparently we were dozing a little bit. I felt him starting to roll off of me towards the edge of the couch. Oh. My. God. It was instant reflex. I jumped and stopped him, he jumped and got startled. Whew, I need to be more freaking careful!
I confess that I was completely blindsided by the whole nursing makes the mom instantly sleepy thing.
I confess I <3 our Foreman grill. We got it for our wedding almost 8 years ago and it's still going strong. I've been meaning to try grilled sandwiches on it, but keep forgetting.
Those "OMG I can't keep my eyes open" when nursing moments only lasted a few weeks. Though I know for some it can last months. Just saying.
That feeling is so scary.
I have never dropped Annie, but she has fallen off the bed. Once, when she had started crawling, and I wasn't RIGHT there...I was putting something in dh's drawer and she very quickly made it from the middle of the bed to the side, and I just couldn't get there in time. :ohno: So it does happen, and if it does happen eventually for you (which it might not :) ) Then you know you aren't alone.
I had a nice set up with a private room and my own bathroom...and a walk in closet where I basically had a mini-kitchen. It was very handy to have the private room and bathroom when my boyfriend was coming over (now DH). :wink:
LOL about Bridget's imaginary one night stand. I would like to do that too sometimes...except not get pregnant :P
I don't even want to begin with all my 'close calls' with my kids. You'd all wonder how they survived :D
That's great to hear, Janeen! I am looking forward to the whole newborness again since I know this will be our last baby (well, probably!)
Umm, I don't wear contacts (or even glasses!) how did Accuvue (or however you spell it) know to send me a birthday e mail?
I don't even wanna know how spammers get info. Some of it is pretty good. We got junk mail the other day that was a women's health magazine kinda thing. Addressed to my sister in law. She's a CNA and she's never lived with us.
I ordered lunch online, to be delivered at 12:00. It's probably not a good sign if the pizza place tried to call my cell phone & ask if it was ok to have it delivered at 12:30 instead :(
Oh yikes! Busy pizza day?
