Holt - 18 months

Since my return to blogging happens to coincide with H's 18 month birthday - I thought I'd catch you all up on what my little boo has been up to.

As evidenced above - this dude loves him some bananas.  Every morning he stands in front of where we keep them and points up saying "nana, nana, nana!!"  Followed by "pweeeee" because we make him say please before we give him anything.

Other favorite things:
Animal crackers
Climbing on anything and everything
Being outside
Our dog Hippo
Frozen - he sings along and makes the clock noise from "Do You Want to Build a Snowman"

He's no longer walks - just runs everywhere.  It's quite possibly one of the cutest things I've seen, but impossible to describe.  Take my word for it - adorable.

We are enjoying the fall so much.  We went to our first college football game of the season last weekend.  H loved it.  He clapped and cheered and climbed all over the place.  All was well until the ass in front of us suggested we "put a seat belt on that kid".  He's lucky I didn't punch him in the throat.  Lucky for him, it was getting to be bed time and it was half time, so we left.

Fun stuff he does/says:
Everything is "hot" - he says "that's hot" then holds his little hand out like don't touch it.
He can tell us the noises that a cow, cat, dog, pig, duck, firetruck, dinosaur, and sheep all make.  And, according to him - a llama says "llama".
He's obsessed with firetrucks.  He's been to 2 firestations and is in total awe at them.

We had his 18 month check up today.  All is well.  His head hasn't gotten any bigger since his 15 month check up.  So, that finally puts us back on the growth chart!  He's in the 70's percentile wise for height and weight.  Such a big dude!  Our NP we see loves him.  She said he's the most cooperative 18 month old she's seen.  That makes this momma feel good.  He does have an ear infection.  But, he's such a little trooper that it doesn't even bother him and he doesn't act like anything is wrong.

I feel like this was kind of all over the place so I'll wrap up.  That's what my little boo has been up to lately.

Is this thing on?

Oh, hello there!  Remember me?  I'm the blogger who sucks at blogging.  I have an adorable son.  Remember me?

So, yeah, I've taken a 7 month hiatus from blogging.  I'd like to say that I needed a cleans or whatever. But, the fact is, life got crazy.  The past 7 months have been bananas (I may or may not have sang the Gwen Stefani song while spelling that...).  And, I'm not really sure anyone reads my little piece of the internet.  So, I quit blogging.  But, things have both slowed down and ramped back up, so I thought "what the hell" let's give this thing another go.  Who cares if anyone even reads it.  Sometimes it's nice to just put it all out there and get it off your chest.

Here's a quick recap of what's happened since we last spoke:

* We decided to list our house and buy a bigger one
* Holt turned ONE!!!!!
* Our house sold in 4 days for the asking price
* I got a new job
*We were almost homeless b/c we go screwed over on a new construction house and then we had a mortgage snafu
* We found, fell in love with, and bought a new house
* Another daycare shuffle - still with our favorite just a different set up
* We moved
* B got a new job
* We decided we want to have another baby

Whew.  Bananas.

As for that last little bit.  Yeah.  About that.  No, I'm not pregnant.  Nor do I expect to be for a while.  But, we decided to just see what will happen.  I'm taking a suppliment called Pregnitude that my RE put me on the cycle I got pregnant with H.  I've been on it for about a month and a half.  Then, during my annual gyno visit, I discussed with Dr. T that we were sort of seeing what could happen but by no means were we ready to go back to the RE.  So, she prescribed me some Clomid and gave me instructions to call her if I didn't get my period a week after a normal person would.  I didn't.  So, today I called in to get some Provera to see if we can kick start a period and then we will see what happens.

My thoughts about doing this again - I sort of feel no pressure.  Would I like another child?  Absolutely.  But, I don't feel this major race against the clock.  I've had several friends get pregnant and I'm nothing but happy for them.  I have my perfect little kiddo.  He's the best thing ever.  Seriously, sometimes I look at him and think my heart may burst from loving him so damn much.  So I really feel like another pregnancy and child is really just icing on the cake.

Remind me of this when I'm 6 months in and clomid isn't working and I'm devastated....
