GAH! Blogger eating my posts!

I just checked and ALL The posts I sent this week aren't here! Where did they go??

It was a busy week - we're building our code base for the beta release TOMORROW so I've been crazy busy at work, yet unable to stay late due to other obligations (like a pedicure appt Wednesday after work that I couldn't miss due to the fancy awards dinner for my hubby after work Thursday)...and forget squeezing in a workout!

AND I called my OB since the Metformin isn't doing a good job at regulating my cycles, so she upped my dose (we are NOT trying to get pregnant -but our birth control method is "charting" and if you don't ovulate regularly, it's a pain in the ass)...

We're leaving tomorrow to see our fabulous relatives in PA and I haven't packed a thing yet, but home w/the 2 kids all day today, I will more than likely NOT HAVE TIME to pack! Yikes!!!

Both kiddies are doing great! TMan pulled into a sitting position yesterday, and is wobblying up on his hands and knees, ready to fullon crawl any day ( he does a pseudo commando crawl now, and he's DAMN FAST)...

TESTING!  Is this thing on?  Two posts I sent yesterday never made it!

Thursday Update!

*Sigh*  I can't get ahead can I?

I have to work tomorrow, to make up for missing Monday at work.  Boo hiss.

Saturday we have family portraits, which while exciting!  Is a lot of work.  AND it's going to be seventy-bajillion degrees.

Sunday, we have a birthday party for one of Son's friends that recently moved.  And this party is very far away.  And late in the evening.  SO I will be very tired, esp. when i have to get up the next day at 4:30 a.m.  AND since we have to leave the house much earlier than party start time to get there on time... it all makes for a long day!

BUT hopefully hubby and I will get some house organization done this weekend, so there's that ...right?  right?  Cleaning out the playroom is fun, yes?  No?

ALSO - my baby has super human powers!  Remember, he's exactly 7 months old.  HE GOT OUT OF HIS EXERSAUCER.  It is unbelieveable.  I have no idea how he did it, but he did!  So I guess no more putting him in it while I go shopping at the mall anymore huh?  (hahaha, just kidding!)....

Kid's Product Review: Kelty Convertible Stroller

Ok. Son is 20 pounds. While the Baby Bjorn is rated for that, it HURTS to carry BabyT in it! So we bought this:

We LOVE it and so does BabyT. The little bag is a great size and you can put stuff in the stroller basket even when it's on your back. AND Hubby can put the baby in it and get it on all by himself! What a great product!

Virtual Stock Exchange

We're playing this game - wish me luck - we each get a virtual $100,000 to invest and see what happens to it through December!

funky shoe day!

I saw 2 people yesterday with funky shoes...
There was a guy dressed in a VERY NICE blue dress-shirt.  With french cuffs and cuff links.  Nice dress pants.
AND black leather sandals.  AND SOCKS (which were white and black patterned).
I was walking behind a guy wearing the little dress boots (instead of shoes).  They are just above ankle-height.  Which is a trendy shoe option, apparently.  BUT he had LIFTS in his shoes, that were SO TALL his heel was NOT IN THE BOOT AT ALL.  Which is why he caught my attention, because something didn't look right as I walked in behind him.  So he was pretty much walking on stilletoes (stiletos? stillettoes?) all day.  Now I know women (definitely me included) wear heels all the time to be taller (the shoes I have on right now are Born Sandals with a 4 inch heel) - but it's obvious to anyone and everyone that I am not normally 5'9".  Seems kinda sneaky for a guy to be doing it, eh?  What do you think?

Cute Things Son Said This Weekend...

*  when drawing a picture of Darth Vader, he said the arms were crossed because "Darth was covering his peepee"
*  while we were playing BINGO, he got the ball for "N 40"...which he tried to figure out what "40" was by himself, as "zero-ty four?"
bloody hell, I can't remember the rest right now!

Suprise Day Off!

Hubby and I had to switch days off this week to accomodate a class schedule of his - so I'm home with the kiddies! AND BabyT slept from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. this morning, then he went back to sleep until 7 a.m.! We are all well rested today! (of course, I could get called into the proposal room for this evening at any time, but, LALALA! I CAN'T HEAR THE PHONE RINGING!)

BabyT had his 6 month check last week! 90% in weight. At 20 POUNDS, I find it hard to believe that 10 % of children weigh MORE than he does. Good golly, that's a lot of weight to be hauling around! He's NOT EVEN ON THE CHART IN HEIGHT, coming in at 29 and 1/2 inches...NOT ON THE CHART. Amazing. He and son both have December birthdays, so I thought all of son's clothes would be perfect for BabyT, as they should've been close in size. But BabyT is now wearing the clothes Son wore in his SECOND SUMMER, when he was 18 months old! Dang!

4th of July!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe fourth!

We went to Purcellville, VA for the Loudoun County 4th Of July parade.  It was great, as usual (we've been EVERY year they've had it - my grandma lives in Purcellville and her birthday is 4th of July, so we're in PVille wether there is stuff going on for the 4th or not)...Even BabyT loved the parade, which surprised us because it was so loud with all the emergency vehicles in it!

Then lunch at grandma's.  Then off to Leesburg for a pool party / BBQ.  Also, fantastic!  We love those particular friends of ours and Son had a BLAST swimming in their pool!
What did you do?
