It's gonna be a HOT few days around here. It's the humidity that makes it so bad. It's supposed to end by Sunday. We have a bbq on Saturday so that'll be fun. I had the ac on in my car this morning and it was barely approaching 80*.
I have no dinner planned. And everything I can think of requires a trip to the grocery store. Which I would try to do during the lunch hr. But that's when the heat is supposed to hit. Grrr. Cereal it is!
Good morning everyone! I've been totally MIA; need to go through some of the recent randoms threads to catch up on what's happening with all of you. Hopefully all good things!
Not much is new here. I'm sitting for the bar exam on Tuesday and Wednesday this coming week so pretty much all I've been doing is studying and eating. Sleeping too I guess. And I have to say, my house is actually cleaner than it's been in a while, since I have been tidying up in the afternoons while memorizing flash cards!
LO is good too. I'm so in love with him these days, as to me he just gets funnier and cuter all the time, especially as he learns new words. We've entered a very clingy stage though which has been tough for me emotionally since I have had to concentrate on the bar so much. The other day I was hiding upstairs in my room with my books while the sitter was getting his dinner ready, and he was just standing at the bottom of the stairs crying and yelling "Mama! Mama!" over and over again. It broke my heart

Morning! LO has his 18 month appt this morning so I'm getting ready for that. I still get nervous about his growth even though his Dr never seems concerned since he's following his own chart curve though.
LO chomped down hard on my nipple in the MOTN last night. He was asleep so I know he didn't mean it. The inside of my nursing bra has some dried blood on it It definitely stings a bit this morning.
Good morning! Busy morning again today at work! I did not want to get up this morning.. I feel asleep hard after the alarm went off, and hubby woke me up... I kept telling myself and LO that we can sleep in tomorrow...we are going to do a walk through of the new place tomorrow to see if everything the sellers said she would fix got fixed! Then I need to shop for a friends baby shower, also I have a meeting at 3:30 tomorrow that I may or may not go to! I didn't get breakfast this morning because it was busy so lunch time can come anytime! Will try to check back in later, I need to do the 18 month check up thread..
Also a little TMI. any co sleeping mammas here? LO is sleeping with us right now because he can climb out of his crib and we don't want to transition him to the new bed until we move ( I know I didn't need to explain but I did Well my question is How do you have a sex life with hubby? I feel bad for hubby and need to try to make something happen! Thanks
BabyStandish, ugh I'm sorry you got bitten! ::shudder:: I do not miss that part of nursing for sure. littlelion, today is not as bad but recently the humidity has been brutal. My hair is hideous as a result lol! babyw15, that is a tough one. Does your LO nap in your bed too? If not can you sneak in some sexy time then? Or what about in the shower?
babyw15 we don't co-sleep, but we often wind up with a kid or two in our bed through out the night. We often have to get creative, especially now that most of our kids are old enough to know what's going on and don't go to bed so early. The car, the closet, the bathroom, the spare room have all been our friends over the years! I know it's tricky.
littlelion you must be in the same heat wave as us. We were supposed to go to the zoo with friends Saturday, but scrapped our plans because it's just going to be too hot. Thank God for AC! I'm scared for this month's electric bill though. Yikes!!! As for dinner, do you have any eggs? Omelettes for dinner? ourcrazynavylife good luck with your busy day! dashook good luck with the bar exam! At least there's a light at the end of the tunnel for you. BabyStandish what percentile is he in? Lo at one point was in the 4-5th percentile for height but moved up to the 7th this past checkup. He's gained weight but dropped from the 50th percentile to the 25th over the past year. Our pedi wasn't concerned, she said he's still growing and he's just doing his own thing. Sorry about the biting. Ouch. babyw15 I'd sneak out after he's asleep and find somewhere else. Shower or couch, wherever. kcrus how are you feeling today?
I need to brainstorm a new solution for keeping lo out of our bathroom drawers. We have the little lever child locks, but they open enough still that he can slip his hand in there, even if we shove everything to the back of the drawer. This is what he's after. He loves his "fuff" (floss.)

Hot for us here too. Our morning walk to the park turned into a 2hr 5km saga because Emily lost a shoe and her water bottle, plus Henry wanted to hatch his Pokemon egg...phew! Lots of water and watermelon. Gotta stay hydrated!

Conference all damn day. Booooooo. DH and LO went to a children's museum this morning and it sounds like they had a good time. Jealous I didn't get to go with but at least they're getting to do stuff while we're here.
littlelion I hear you on the heat! It's been over 100 here every day and humid. So gross. As for dinner, I'm a big fan of making a frittata with whatever is in the fridge.
ourcrazynavylife have a good day at clinical! How many hours do you have to do to graduate?
dashook GL on the bar! That's very exciting. How are you feeling?
BabyStandish UGH I hate the biting. It always knocks the wind out of me. I hope it heals quickly.
ashlantic good call on skipping the zoo. It's terrible when it's so hot! I'm feeling ok, just super sore. Turns out my bowel was stuck to the wall of my abdomen as well, so they had to do a bit more cutting than they planned. I'm hopeful that means I won't have any pain once I'm healed up!
AFM, just resting today. I'm doing homework in bed and making my H chase LO everywhere. My big kids are with my mom- she took them to the mall to play Pokemon go. It's fun that all three of them have something to do together that they enjoy.

ourcrazynavylife,ashlantic,kcrus, my first thought was eggs or pasta. I have no veggies (incl tomatoes!) or potatoes or bread. And no pasta sauce. And obvs no meat. I may have to stop on my way home to pick up something. unless we order in and doubt we'll do that. My previous company owned a grocery company. I could order online in the morning and have it delivered by the afternoon, to my cube! Ah, the perks I took for granted.
That's not bad! We do 780. I can't believe I only have a week left of this semester and only two left after this! We have to do our final paper throughout the program, turning it in in 5 page pieces at the end of each semester. We are both so close!
Physically, I'm feeling great, thanks for asking. 23 weeks today! Hungry as hell and enjoying lots of baby rolls and kicks.
Mentally, I have a lot of stress that I am trying to balance/manage right now. The next month is going to be very tough so I'm just trying to keep it in the perspective that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Got the garage swept and cleaned while lo napped. I probably should have waited until it was a billion degrees outside, but it was driving me nuts. I am beat, but it feels good that it's done. Dh is making dinner and I'm sitting with lo while he plays on the tablet.
shannjohnston that face!! So cute. Lo decided he prefers watermelon slices over little cubes. How did nap go today? laceysbryan boo, hope you get to spend some family time with YH and your lo. ourcrazynavylife we usually end up having breakfast for dinner once every couple weeks, if not once a week. I should add breakfast burritos to our meal plan for next week... Hope your throat feels better and isn't turning into some sort of sickness. kcrus glad you're feeling ok and that you're able to rest up. dashook yay for little baby kicks! That's about the only thing I miss about being pregnant.

ashlantic nap time today was great! 2+ hours of sleep for baby lady and only 5 minutes to go down. Bedtime is going okay too...though I am still sitting in the hallway outside her room with my iPad...but no crying!
Poor lo ended up being a wreck tonight. He fell and scraped his finger up and lost his mind after we cleaned it up and put a band aid on it. He kept sobbing "off, off, off!" We even let him put a band aid on his favorite puppet and dh put one on his own finger, but lo gave zero shits. We finally took the bandaid off (after he ripped it partially off anyways.) I went to yoga after all this, and dh said lo was a mess. He barely got a bath in because lo flipped as soon as the water touched his finger. Poor buddy. I gave him as many snuggles as he would allow when I got home.
shannjohnston yay! Fx naptime continues to get better for you guys. kcrus oh hell no! That's not right.
Back from sesame place! reginaphalange3, go! Such a fun time. Leo loved it and everything was perfect for his age. He could ride almost everything! I'm about to blow up the thread with pics. He turned 18 months yesterday - how?! He's still not saying a whole lot at all and it is stressing me out so much to see others progressing and Leo still struggling. We have his 18 month appt on Friday and I plan to request early intervention to have a look. kcrus hope you're feeling well! ashlantic LOL on the floss shannjohnston OMG she is so cute! dashook we are in a super clingy phase also. Yay for baby kicks, I miss that soooooo much!
