round up

a lot has happened since my last post. sorry readers for such a long lull...

chris's grandmother passed away, she had a stroke three weeks prior then passed comfortably and peacefully in her own home. we bought a newer car, replaced chris's 1990 jeep with a 2000 jeep, now we both drive the SAME EXACT vehicle just in different colors... i think we need to get us some vanity plates. what do you think? my suggestions are the following: CTR 1 and CTR 2. i'm totally joking of course... no vanity plates for us, but that sure would be funny...

i have officially made it to the 2nd trimester! and i'm feeling just a tad less than 100%. still tired often but not sick :) yay! my belly is starting to change shape... and i'm really not liking it much this time. my skin is still very loose from just doing this a year ago... so i'm feeling very very lumpy... but that's not that horrible.... i just can't wait for the weather to change so that i can go out and buy some fall/winter maternity clothes that will hopefully hide my lumps... lol

no knitting has happened in the past few weeks... i'm planning on going to a knitting get together tomorrow so hopefully i'll get out of my non-knitting funk there. i need to get moving on this project so that i can move onto the NEXT one...

max has had a few milestones too, he's begun to stand and let go of things, no steps on his own yet but lots of hand held walking up and down the sidewalk and around the house. he also learned how to use a fork as of yesterday! we load it of course then he puts it in his mouth :) it's so cute! he has also made the switch from formula to whole milk. he seems to really like the change. but i'm thinking that the milk is not as filling as the formula because for the past two nights he's been waking up at strange times of the night wanting nothing but another bottle... sooo.... i guess this is just something we'll have to adapt to.

i leave you with this, our little fork user:

Isn't parenting such a science project sometimes??? Try this...no this...wait...THIS! It all works itself out, as you know :-)
