Yeah CJ!!!! I love the new siggy. I'm still hoping for a BFP for you this cycle. Any reason you think this isn't IT?
AFM, we've had a busy time getting the garden done and put up for the winter. We made a trip to an Amish store (where we buy bulk) and we got 75 lbs of peaches, 20 lbs of blueberries, and 150 lbs of sugar and flour. Yeah, that's how we shop now. We canned all the peaches yesterday, 32 quarts, and today I'm hoping to work on the green beans. Andy had to work out of town for the week again, so I'm on my own this week. Bummer. Oh well, other than that things are good. Everyone's healthy and doing well. Miss Lila turned 3 months and she has hit 10 lbs! She's a little thing, which I'm enjoying to be honest. She has started smiling and tracking with her eyes, I'm so thrilled. We are also excited to be hoping for number 9 in the near future, so that makes me smile. I'm still nursing and haven't gotten AF back, but we can always hope. And no, I'm not pg.
Hope everyone has a good week. I'll check back on everyone and am hoping we see Marie back, I miss ya! Hopefully Becky, Jess, and Casey will check in also (among all the other ladies of course). We need some more updates.
We have great weather this week, hope you all do too!

Yay CJ!!!! Hope the psycho-stalker is leaving you alone, Sam
Mari-I need some canning recipes, particulary peaches and pickles if you'd like to share
We just got home today, we've spent the past 31 nights camping in our trailer away from home-its great to be back! I'm up to my eyeballs in laundry, thankfully my front load holds three baskets at a time.
Nil new here, the kids are happy and healthy, the twins have been teething molars the past ten days, so little sleep and lots of Advil for all of us. E is trying to potty train, she's a work in progress that one Nolan is very excited for preschool starting on the 30th. One week from today is our Catholic wedding renewal!!! I can't wait! I have my final fitting this Friday, along with my rub-in tan and hair color, Monday is the day!! My wedding dress is still a secret from dh, he'll be very surprised Even the scanties have been purchased, he he
WTG Nolan on starting preschool at the end of the month.
WTG A and T on those molars starting to come in.
Okay, now for my aww's.
Sam ~ Sorry you feel like this isn't the month. Hope you get a soon.
Mari ~ on Andy having to work out of town.
Marie ~ on having lots of laundry to get done.
AFM ~ Katie is biting (well, sort of . . . as much as she can with only two upper teeth and some really tough lower gums) and standing for a few moments on her own. Her walk behind toys are getting a work out right now and she has found a new use for her learning chair. She uses the walk behind toy to push the learning chair against the couch, cruises from one item to the other and then climbs up in the chair and gets onto the couch to retrieve what ever had been placed there to keep it out of her mouth (usually her Pooh Bear or Talking Elmo). She is doing new stuff every day. It is hard to go to work because I know she is going to have all these new skills by the time I get home.
Mike loves his job. I am liking mine okay but since the photo lab supervisor has been out with an OTJ injury, I have had lots of extra shifts (love the money, hate working closing then opening because it plays havoc with my sleep schedule) and have been going more than 7 days without a day off.
Oh Beth, seven days?!!? That's ridiculous-I hope work settles down for you. I hear you on missing out when you're at work, I had alot of guilt over that with Nolan--she loves you, she knows who her mommy is, and income and groceries are important-you are doing just fine, mama
