Visions of TTC Dance in my Head

So we will be TTC baby #2 in 2009. Not sure which month the fun will begin. I am hoping to make an appointment to see the RE in the early part of the year and then go from there.

We have 2 vials of the stuff that made baby C. It would be nice to use the same donor. He fits a lot of what we want in a donor.

2 vials. It took 5 insems to make C, 8 tries total. Do we buy more vials? For awhile there we couldn't buy more vials. He wasn't donating. So the whole do we buy more or not question wasn't relevant. But today I was browsing the bank's site and learned that he is donating again. Hmmmm. So do we buy more or not?

When we started talking about ttc#2 we said we will try our two tries and then we will let it go - we will be done. We know the hell that is ttc. We are starting to forget.

ETA: Nevermind. He is no longer Canadian Compliant.

Nonna B

Not a very good blogger lately. I am knee deep in life with a full time job and a walking baby. Only she isn't really a baby anymore. She's a toddlin' for sure.

Monday we had insulation put in the walls of our almost 80 year old house - apparently there was no insulation in the walls, ever. No wonder we freeze every winter. It is nice and warm now. But there were pink bits of insulation everywhere so I had to take C somewhere while I vacuumed. She want to Nonna B's house (B is A's boss). Nonna B is O's grandma (or Nonna), and O is C's BFF. He is 16 months to her 14 months. They are both new walkers and when they are together they look like a couple of drunks. The two laugh at each other and play. It is sweet to see. C gave O kisses when she left and he giggled. This was C's first time with someone other than her Mama and Baba. When I came back to get her, she was happy to see me, but she didn't want to leave. So she hugged me and kissed me and then turned around and took off after O. I'm glad she did okay - it was hardest on me - I'm thinking though that we will be able to do a dinner and a movie one evening (a date!?) while Nonna B looks after C.

Yesterday I took the day off work because I had only 2 1/2 broken up hours of sleep. C is teething again and feverish and would just not let go. Luckily I could take a sick day - some days are better than others for that. Of course she woke up with so much energy - while A and I were zombies. It did feel luxurious though to have coffee and chit chat at the mall in the middle of the week as a family.

Today is Thursday. She slept through the night. Hopped up on Motrin. I felt inside her mouth - she actually has two molars poking through on the bottom. So there you go.

Houston, We Have a Walker

She is pretty much walking now. And she is adorable.

Taking Her Sweet Time

Yesterday we watched her take her first few steps and then no more since.

Daylight Savings Time has messed things up. Anyone else experiencing odd wake-up times, nap times changing, overtiredness at bed time... all of this and we kind of adjusted things to begin with to account for the change. Oh well.

As an American living in Canada who did indeed vote, I am pleased with the outcome.

Not Yet Walking

Wow November already.

At what point should I be worried that C is not walking? She will be 14 months in a week. She crawls super fast everywhere, pulls up, cruises, can bring herself to standing without support, but has yet to take a step.
