Ali- my cycles got so wonky after having L, i can see how it would be hard to plan another!
Aw Iím sorry nobody seems to care as much about his first bday party. I donít blame you for not wanting to do the work all yourself.
Dh likes the name Elizabeth (which grew on me) and I like the middle name Jean, after my grandma(who passed in 2015) on my dads side. That is most likely what we will go with!
Ugh I hope the stomach flu misses you! I canít believe T is such a good walker, L still doesnít really want to try other than cruising a little using the couch.
Wow, didnít realize until the other ladies pointed out, happy belated birthday to baby T!! I hope whatever you were able to do, you guys had a fun time!

Apple- glad you had a nice New Years! Iím glad overall going back to work has been good and that you will be able to take off tuesdays! How are you feeling health-wise? I hope all the pains have been staying away!
Are you using any particular recipe? I planned on making L a little cake as well, not sure which recipe to use!

Literati- Iím glad the overnight Christmas went okay! Iím sure youíre glad itís over.
Sounds similar to what we are doing party-size wise for L.
Iím sorry about the lame New Years!

Ally- the safari park sounds so fun! I wish we had something like that where I live.
Oh no, Iím sorry to hear about dhís nana. Itís good heís able to be with family, but I havenít had to do nights alone with L yet so I imagine that is tough!

Froggy- I think I remember you mentioning being from Texas awhile back, we went to Dallas (Lewisville, more specifically). I had family that lived in Houston for awhile, although they recently moved to Florida. Do you like living in Alabama, or do you miss Texas?
Dh likes the name Elizabeth for whatever reason (which has actually grown on me, apparently we like older names haha) and I like Jean for a middle name after my grandma!
Glad you guys like the fit bits! I just told dh I need to download myfitnesspal again (I had it several years ago when we first married) because like you said, it helps keep you accountable for what you eat. I too really want to get back to working out!
A new car is exciting! Do you have one in mind?
I say go as overboard as you want, they only turn one once (and two, three, and so on haha).
Play group sounds like fun, Iím glad you found a good one! Gage sounds adorable with the little girls!

Afm- we just got back from Texas last night, it was a nightmare! I was hoping we would be able to find something fun at least one day, but dhís class didnít end early (heíll usually get out by about 2-3, this time it went to 4:30). Night time was the worst. The hotel provided a pack n play, which we discovered L is not a fan of. She would only sleep in it for up to 3-4 hours, then wake up crying until one of us laid with her on our chest until she fell asleep, then we had to put her in bed with us. We never coslept, so she just got all excited being with mom and dad and thought it was a party! Dh had to take a test in the class Friday, and while the instructor normally lets him take it early, this one didnít so we ended up not leaving until after 4. Between after work traffic and a bad wreck, it took about 5 hours and we didnít get home until after 10pm. L is usually in bed by 7:15ish, so she screamed until she lost her voice the entire trip home. It was AWFUL!
Anyways, we decided no more hotel trips until sheís a bit older.
Her 12 month appointment is Wednesday, she turns one Tuesday which is crazy to me! Canít believe we will all have one year olds by the time this month is over!
Canít remember if I said yet, but L now points, although Iím not sure if she knows what sheís doing yet. Sheís still not walking on her own but Iím not ready to start chasing her around even more than I do now with her crawling!
Dh goes back to work Monday after having one week vacation and one week being in Texas, so itíll be hard but also kind of nice to be back into routine with L.
Pregnancy wise nothing too exciting, I am feeling tons of bigger movement, lots of rolls and pushes rather than just the little taps. Next appointment isnít until the 22 which will be the glucose test and then I go to every two weeks! I say this all the time but it really is flying and I feel incredibly unprepared.
Have I missed any more birthdays from our regulars, and are there any between today and Tuesday? Canít wait to hear how bday parties go for those doing one!

Thought I would pop in real quick to share a couple pictures! Glad these monthly pictures are done as they were getting harder and harder to take. Iím attempting to bake Lís smash cake, weíll let her have it tonight when dh gets off work, and this weekend we wanted to grab dhís nice camera and take some one year pictures! My bff has her first OB appointment today (she chose my doctor actually!) and then sheís coming by my house before going back to work, so excited for her!
Anyways, now trying to get L to take her nap, hope everyone is doing well, itís quiet in here!

Itís the most pathetic ďcakeĒ ever but here it is! it was made with mashed bananas, oats, whole wheat flour and a few other things, and the icing was just cream cheese, vanilla extract and apple juice concentrate. I thought it was pretty gross tasting but she loved it! Although she only dug into the icing and ate a couple bites of the actual cake. It was fun, AND she slept through the night for the first time in quite awhile! We have her 12 month appointment in a couple hours and Iím dreading all the shots.
Which baby has the next bday?

Just wanted to update real quick. So on new years eve T burnt his hand while under my brothers watch. One of the worst things I have dealt with. He cried and screamed for 2 hours before I got him to chill then later took him to the ER because of the location of the burn. They said what I was doing is what they would have done and sent me home.

Then his 1yr appointment he was sick. Cough and runny nose. Well he was a but wheezy sooo.. He got a neg treatment and a chest xray.. had to have labs and shots as well. Also they wanted to remove the dead skin from his hand. That was all fun.. not.

So O has been sick as well. Cough, nasal congestion, but also a fever. Took him to urgent care on Saturday and was told most likely a virus. Then he spiked a 104 temp on Monday night so we took him to the ER. We get told bilateral pneumonia. Sent via ambulance to a bigger hospital. Find out he has RSV and only pneumonia to his lower right lobe. So thankfully he gets sent home on oral antibiotics. I got a call yesterday and he was positive for strep as well.

So since my boys have been sick and injured. I'm sure T has RSV as well. Probably what I'm fighting. O is finally getting better with the antibiotics. This was all after the stomach flu.

Now I'm just hoping to get through the flu season without them getting it. T hasn't had a party yet and they aren't well enough for one.
