New month, New chat!

Can you believe it's already August? Feels like just yesterday I was peeing on sticks and praying for two pink lines ... *sigh*

Nope can't believe it. The last year flew by. I can't believe my monkey will be 4 months this month either.

I know....it's kind of bittersweet. I am excited, though, because August means that fall is around the corner, and then holiday season with our babies! Can't wait!

It is really bittersweet. My little man is coming up on 5 months already. I was just looking at some of the first videos I took of him with his little red , wrinkly little face. Now he is doing so much and is starting to look less like a baby and more like a little boy. He even takes the bottle away from DH because he wants to hold it himself. But I try not to think about it because it makes me weepy. There are so many exciting firsts on the way so I'll focus on that.

12 hrs in the car today. ..glad to be home! The girls did well, all things considered. There were definitely lots of stops, though.

There has been an outbreak of the flu (confirmed influenza A) among patients in one of our oncology infusion centers--I think the count is up to 30 something. It's enough to have made the news. At this point the Arkansas health department and the CDC have gotten involved, and staff who are involved in direct patient care are getting Tamiflu. Crazy...it's not even flu season yet.It's sort of making me nervous about this sore throat + headache that is creeping up today...

I know! They're thinking it might be traced back to either Ohio or Argentina...we've got patients coming in from all over. Anyway, I so hope that I don't get it. No time for that.

I really need to get some things done this evening, but all I want to do is sit on the couch. Ready for the weekend!

The CDC sent us 500 doses of flu vaccine early so that staff/patients in this area can be vaccinated--I went ahead and got mine today. I'd have to do it by November anyway (required for my job).

I am so tired and I just can't shake it. Like, first trimester tired. Blah. Would be great if Anna was in the mood to sleep tonight.

Finally feeling somewhat better today. Less tired, anyway. It was a long day, though.

And what's up with 85 degree weather in Arkansas In August?? It's normally 110 this time of year. No complaints, though.

Anna was only up once last night! And she settled back down quickly. That was the first "good" night in a while.

Sore throats at my house. Really hoping it's not strep. No time to be sick this week!

Thai, you guys are really getting hit with the blahs, huh? Hope it's turning around quickly.

It was my bday last Thursday and since my parents took my 4 year old for the weekend, I took it as an opportunity to make my birthday sweet treat - imitation Hostess cupcakes! Oh my, they are quite tasty. Chocolate cake, Chambord spiked vanilla filling, chocolate ganache frosting, and an icing loop-the-loop swirls on top. I had one for breakfast after my yogurt today at work!

In other news, I've done 2 weeks in a row walking a 3.5 mile loop with a friend on Saturday mornings. My weight is just NOT going down and it's a little disturbing. (Not like I'm doing anything to try to drop the baby weight, but last time it melted off me without trying and this time I'm totally softer and pudgier!) I suppose if I stopped making chocolate cupcakes maybe my weight would improve. Hmmmmm.... nah, I don't see that happening!

I hope you feel better soon Anya!

I am loving that my eyes were opened up to elimination communication. L hasn't worn a diaper for 3 days in a row now, except at night, and we have had zero accidents

Maine, that sounds like me. My weight just went away so fast last time, and even extra weight. This time, it isn't dropping the same. And I'm much hungrier this time so I'm sure that isn't helping, either. Sweets are ALWAYS my weakness (and bread and pasta).

Thai, I hope you are feeling better, Anya...your house too. My oldest had his teeth pulled last week and wound up testing positive for mono and strep....What is going on with all these illnesses in the summer? I don't ever remember so much sickness! It's kind of scary!

What I will tell you is that I am super excited for the fall! I love the fall! I am not wishing away any time, but I do love Northeast Autumn! It's pretty, school's back in, routines are pretty solid! The trees get beautiful, the weather is cooler and that is all!!!


Hope you are all doing well!
