Hey girls I sat down to get in a few words in a few times always at the tail end of my 2hr-baby sleep-break and she woke up half way )

First things first

Steph, PHOTOS PLEAAASE ))) Sooo excited can't wait to see her? How are you coping with the csection hon. Must be difficult having 2 while your tummy is hurting. You can't lift Katelyn right? How's little Madelyn? Is she an easy going baby? I bet she is gorgeous. Who does she look like? Is any family helping at the moment or do you have any other help than hubby? Lot's of little kisses for little baby Madelyn ))

Angela how did the dr find out it was dairy allergy? Might be a naive thing to ask but would he grow out of it or would the dairy allergy pills work for him? Dairy allergy might be pain cause most of the sweets and many dishes require it (butter, creme etc). U might need to check out kosher recipes and the delis for non dairy substitutes. Bit pain in the bu... cooking for the whole family keeping nondairy.

Poor Beth. What a rough weekend that both mummy and the poor lad got sick on holiday. Traveling with a little one is always a challenge. Just running after her on holiday exhausts me cause it's an unfamiliar environment so it's hard to tell what's around the corner. A pot hole, a tantrum, an unsettled night etc. Sigh and hugs. Sounds like you might be having luck in other areas though LOL )) Good luck hon

Anna can't believe u r already talking about the snow ) We had such a sunny good summer here that I never want it to end. But already signs of autumn, rain rain and back to grey sky in London.

Hey Plum? Are they going to get interviewed or is it only a matter of first come first serve basis? Our area for schools are crazy, applications as early as new born (each application has fees which sucks)+catchment area nonsense +interviews and if it doesn't happen in the interview the kids may need to sit a grueling test at 6 which is really unfair on a little kid. Some people get their 5 year olds have private tuitions already. Really crazy depending on where you live in London. Moving and house prices are completely dependent on the school's catchment areas. Complete nightmare to buy or rent as the house prices sore and the space you get shrinks in school friendly areas. Honestly I can talk for hours about this subject cause that's all everyone with kids talk about in London.

Finally last but not least YYYYAAAAAAAYYYY CHRIS )) MMMuuah, mmmuaaah xxxxx. Congratulations )))) That is GREAAAAAAT. And it is double great cause I am a week away from uuu )) hahahahhahahahahahhaaaa. Yeeaaay I'm 5 weeks. We are pregnancy buddies now ))) isn't that wonderful??? hahahahahahhaaaaaa. This made me really happy Good luck to both of us.

Skye!!!! Congratulations! Sweetie. So excited for you too! YAY!!!! Thanks for asking about me. I am recovering pretty well. No, I can't pick up Katelyn, though sometimes I forget and try. I am still in pain a little bit, but not too bad. My Mom is here until the 21st and then my Dad comes out sept 23rd. It is a bit hard to adjust with two. But luckily with my mom here, I can pass the baby to her and give Katelyn attention when she needs it. I still have this stupid lingering cold and it hurts like hell when I cough, but it is getting better. I will post photos soon, I just need to email them to myself from my phone and then resize them. My hubby took some great photos of Katelyn holding Madelyn and giving her kisses. Katelyn thus far has been great with her sister and tells her she loves her and always wants to hold her and give her hugs LOL.

I will try and post them either tomorrow or Friday.

Hugs to you all!!!

Steph

Congrats, Skye!!! So happy for you!!! How thrilling!

On the preschool front, most require you to schedule an observation (parents only) before you can even fill out an application. They then decide if your child is a good fit for the class, which can depend on age for some mixed classes, and then it is a first-come first-serve basis. We have application fees as well, and if your kid doesn't get in, they refund only half of your application fee, which is ridiculous. And these are small schools. It sounds much worse where you are at. It's that way in the city where I work. Total source of stress for lots of people . . .

Steph take it easy!!! Glad your parents are coming soon. Do they live far away? I saw Madelyn's picture on FB and she's sooooo yummy! Congrats again. Can't wait to see more. How is it being a mom of two? I guess this is all new for you too, having a newborn at home because Katelyn stayed in the hospital for quite awhile didn't she? How is everything going? Are you breastfeeding? If so, is it easier the 2nd time round? How is Madelyn sleeping? Sorry for all the questions

Purpleplum- that sounds so stressful!!! At what age do you start preschool? I am not sure how difficult it is to get into preschool here. I may just leave Sophie in daycare until kindergarten. We'll see. How old are your little ones again?

Hope everyone else is doing good!

Beth, how are you feeling? Have you finally gotten some action in

Anna- snow????

Angela- is it a dairy allergy or milk only allergy? I had a milk allergy as a child and grew out of it, sort of..... I am not confirmed lactose intolerant, but I drink the lactose free milk and am fine. I started noticing in my late teens reactions to dairy and after years of trying this and that I just realized I am probably lactose intolerant. But I realize being lactose intolerant and having a confirmed allergy is not the same thing. What are his reactions? Sorry you have to deal with this, but at least now that you know, he'll be feeling better soon!

Girls, I am feeling so fat today. This is crazy. I am getting the starts of a bump (bloat). I would say I am the same now, as I was around 10 weeks with Sophie....

Quick...

Skye, so happy for you!!! Great news!!

Steph, I too am awaiting pictures, hugs and are care of yourself!

Chris, I think you start showing earlier the second time around. Hugs and hope you are feeling well.

Beth, how are you today? Feeling better? Hugs!

Angela, how goes it, is everyone getting better? Thinking of you.

Plum, ugh! Application process sucks!! Hugs and good luck.

AFM, yep snow. Not on the ground here yet, but soon. Aspen are turning. It's raining cats and dogs, almost literally. We're a high alpine desert here and some parts of Denver/boulder got more rain in 24 hours than they get all year. If it were a few months later and it was snow they would have been buried. Hoping this means a good ski season.

Hugs to all!!! Anna

Chris - the entry age for preschools vary - some are more daycare-type preschools and they start at 2. Some are more formal and start at 3. Since we do not need daycare, starting Violet at 3 works just fine. My daughter is 25 months and my son is almost 7 months.

FYI - I felt much bigger during my second pregnancy, but as it turns out I gained the exact same amount of weight I did with my first!

Hope you are feeling well!

Anna - I can't believe the flooding in Colorado. I've been to Lyons for the St. Vrains creek race and it's hard to imagine what it must look like right now.

Afternoon ladies!

Thanks for asking, we are high and dry here. Well actually pretty soggy, it's been a wet summer and it's been raining a ton this lt week, but in normal amounts. Our local rivers are up, but nothing is near flooding. We are so lucky. So many are devastated in so many parts of the state.

We had a nice mellow weekend. Watched some football, went to the park and got in a run between thunder storms. Fingers crossed we may go camping next weekend!! Hugs to all!!

Anna
