Any word from that other couple Caroline? That is definitely a busy day.

Did my workout for today, going to shower soon and make myself all pretty. We have an alumni get together tonight for the CA firm I used to work at. I'm excited to see everyone...the firm puts this on twice a year, its awesome! I won't actually get dressed till right before I leave. DH is putting Cam down tonight...fingers crossed things go well and we have another good night! I'll only be gone like 3 hours but they are the bedtime hours :/

Well first meeting of the day went fantastic! I was a little nervous going in just because of our phone conversation yesterday, but when I got there the staff was great and seemed to genuinely care about helping DD1. I'm feeling good about sending the girls there next year now.

On a side note the LST thought DS was really smart to already know all his colours and couldn't believe he's only 21 months. Just my mommy brag of the morning.

No, we've heard nothing back. DH and his uncle scared them away. We were supposed to have a showing today but they wanted it right at bedtime and with tomorrow being a school day I said no. I know we need the house sold, but I'm not making my kids totally miserable.

What an awesome mommy brag!!!! That is really good, my friend has a daughter born Sept 2011 and she doesn't talk at all, she grunts...she definitely doesn't know her colours. What a smart little man!

Yay for some stress relief for next year.

Boo about the couple. I'm really sorry this is getting so stressful for you

He is an early talker, he already uses 3 word sentences which makes a mommy friend of mine upset because her son is almost 6 months older and says next to nothing. The LST though wanted me to tell her that I was working with him on his colours but I'm really not. When he asks "what's that?" I'll use the colour to tell him what it is, such as it's a red car, or a brown dog, but that's it. The rest he did all on his own.

My mom is doing her best to keep me from stressing over our house situation. She's a big believer in whatever is supposed to happen will happen in it's own perfect timing. I wish I could be as calm as she is about all this.

Oh that's awesome! I always say the colours of everything as DH is colourblind and I believe our kids won't be...its on the X chromosone so any daughters we have would have a 50% chance of carrying it to pass onto their kids and our boys won't at all as DH gives them a Y. I think. I hope I have that right lol. Either way, I'm constantly saying colours and shapes of what things are. I'm going to keep up with it!

Its hard not to compare. Our friends have a little boy 5 months older than Cam...and they are the same in mobility (ie on the verge of walking)...all babies are different.

I am very much a 'doer'...I can't sit back!

So I went to a work thing from 5-9 today and DH got Cam down by himself. Poor Cam vomited once because he was so upset But he stayed down till after I got home. He's going to have to get used to it...its going to happen once a month once I return to work!

Oh dear, poor little guy. I'm sure the more you do it the easier it will become.

Playing the waiting game today. We have no idea when the lawyer will call us with the keys to the new house. It could be as early at 9:00 this morning or as late as 6:00 this evening. In the mean time I'll be doing laundry, packing a few things and cleaning out the back of the van so I can take things over when we do get the call.

We've tried DH doing when I'm home and its worse. I'm going out tonight too, but will still put him down...we'll see how things go. But I'm thinking I need to go out more so he gets used to it! DH does bath and such, I just nurse and actually lay him down.

Boo on the waiting game Caroline...I remember DH took the day off work and we didn't get the keys till like 3pm...so frustrating. Hope you get them sooner!

I'm hoping we're not waiting all day for them. If we get them around lunch time I'm going to pick the girls up early from school and take them to the new house so they can start their weekend early. I don't know if that will happen or not.

Heading out now to pick up the rest of our paint, drop cloths, easy supper foods, and paper plates and such to eat with while at the new house until we get our dishes moved. I don't have enough real plates to have some there and some here.

So had a baby playdate today, it was super cute...the other two were girls...one is about 2 weeks older than Cam and the other 2 weeks younger. Super cute!

Now I'm planning what to make for breakfast for DH tomorrow. Even though my Mother's Day sucked because of him, I'm going to make his great and rub it in his face because he knows he failed. I'm so mean sometimes
