It started as distractions while on the TTC rollercoaster... we tried to cross off "I've always wanted to do"s...
Next up, after our son arrived in July 2013, were the items to cross off while baby was, well - a baby! After a brief foray back on the TTCAL-train, we welcomed our daughter December 2015!
We're down to pumping twice a day, and this morning I only got 2oz...
(By the way - I tried finding pictures of "dried up" cows and when google wasn't producing, tried "skinny" cow - DUH forgot about that little brand with this little vixen - and she IS skinny and most likely not producing milk, so we're going with it!)
So Thanksgiving (yes, thanksgiving - I'm catching up and maybe by NewYears' will be current...)
Thanksgiving was great - at E's aunt's house where Ben enjoyed some apple puree:
He rocked his adorable turkey hat that SIL got him from Etsy:
Hung out with family (in between courses of stuffing our faces) like his Uncle C
and played with his Aunt K:
And stayed entertained by his Baby Einstein take-along-music-or-whatever-its-called (i.e. KeepsBabyQuietToy)
(Can you tell the holidays now revolve around baby?)
Had my company holiday party last night, which was just what I needed after a large audit at work that require I be in the office hours earlier than normal. (But long work day + party = ugly black eye shadows this morning...)
we have been caught up in a whirlwind of time, and it's marching on - we have a big cousin dinner this Saturday (during which E's adopted 16 & 17 year old sisters will be babysitting solo for the first time!)
Another holiday party next Wednesday, training sessions at work every other day, car shopping somewhere in there (2-door coupe does not work well with 1 - a carseat, and 2 - the snow.... Remember the stupid snowy driveway?!) for a 4WD or AWD vehicle, as well as nanny-shopping! (I will be officially back in the office 5 days a week any minute - I'm holding out as long as possible! but one of my babysitters has passed her boards - for cytology, whatever the hell that is... and will be leaving us any day, boooooo!)
And there's some big holiday breathing down our necks as well...
Speaking of - we received a mystery package the other day... from some company I'd never heard of, and upon opening it I discovered we were sent... a block of 5-year cheddar cheese.
No crackers, no sausage, just cheese... with no packing slip or who it was from...
