Ahhhhh I haven't posted in SOOO long! Joce, congrats on your little guy! Congrats to all you pregnant ladies!

MM, I don't know if you're still dealing with the fake cry but here's a good resource:

http://evolutionaryparenting.com/fak...ng-in-infancy/

Ev is 9 months now. She's starting to stand on her own, pulls herself up on everything, is crazy in love with the critters here (who don't reciprocate), has 7 teeth up front and is getting two molars, sleeps like a normal kid during the day now, still dances, loves climbing up the stairs and is just generally adorable and perfect.

I'm really struggling to get work figured out because I haven't left her with anyone (other than an hour with my husband) since November and she too is in the SA phase. But we found an AWESOME daycare so that helps and I'm hoping to just go back part-time to start.

I'm in the throes of puppy fever right now and I really, really need to convince my husband because I'd really like a hobby and to do something besides be a mom.

As for her first birthday, we are going all out with an outdoor party. I have a pinterest page dedicated to it. I realize it's over the top but it's partly a celebration since her entrance to this world was so scary and not fun. So we're doing a garden party/shabby chic theme and asking for donations to the Ronald McDonald House in lieu of gifts.

Allison, that party sounds awesome! We're also doing an all-out backyard barbecue with a rainbow theme. Everyone says keep first birth day's small, but I love big parties. And Lillian's used to big crowds.


I'm taking a pregnancy test soon. My period is late, but it's been a little weird since I stopped breastfeeding. However, this month we started not trying not preventing. And then SO lost his job. I'm not quite sure what I'm hoping for

We had a big party at our house for Hannah's 1st birthday (man that was so long ago) and had 30+ friends and family members here. It was a minnie mouse theme party and it was a great day. Lots of kids and they all had fun playing together while the adults enjoyed visiting with each other... Many of the family members hadn't seen each other in quite a while. It was awesome!!!! People kept telling me "you don't need to do anything, it's not like she'll remember it" yeah... But I WILL. Don't my memories count for anything? Lol. I don't regret having a big party one little bit. It was a great day even if it was a little overly cozy in our little house lol

My mom spent hours the other night telling me about my first bday and showing me pics. I think it was because I mentioned NOT having a big first bday for Case. So I guess she has guilted me into not thinking that way lol!

I am two months in and have to say this baby thing is pretty easy I think dealing with puppies and horses for years and not being able to sleep on my schedule had me pretty well prepared. And he is so freaking cute!!!

So my little man surprised us a couple weeks ago. He wasn't due until April 7th, but my water broke on March 2nd and he showed up just before noon March 3rd.

Introducing Logan Connor







He was 5 weeks early but he avoided the NICU and has been doing really well. He's gaining weight, eating well, and sleeping like a champ.

CONGRATULATIONS, Karen!

I was just worrying/wondering how you were doing yesterday. It's like you read my mind.

How is Miss Lucy doing with Logan?
