Who Knew...

....That good things happen. In blog land one of the IVF bloggers I follow conceived on her own! I am squeeing for you! I can't link to her blog as she has requested that her her blog remain anonymous. And S.I.F. had someone donate her IVF meds for her upcoming cycle! It's a great day in blog land.


Aaron has slept like crap the past 2 nights. Happy Fathers Day! At least we didn't spend Father's Day in the ER like last year. I hate teething. Aaron was up from 2am-5am on and off last night. I don't' have the heart to close his door and leave him to himself if I can't hear him I can't sleep. I've always been wired this way ever since he was a new born. Can anyone tell me how long it takes the 2 year molars to pop through? It seems like we've been at these ones for over a month!

I had Aaron at the doctor's today and he has grown half and inch 3/4's of an inch in 3 weeks! I haven't noticed but one of the mom's at a playgroup we haven't attended in awhile commented how much he had grown since she last saw him. So growing he is! He is also mimicking almost everything we say so I am waiting for his "language explosion" as other kids at our playgroups seem to be having.


Apparently I am quite adept at writing cover letters. I showed this letter a friend of mine who is very adept herself in cover letter and resume writing. She was so impressed she asked me to email it to her so she could use it. I pulled this out of my ass in less than half an hour with Aaron tugging at me.

My son's been cutting his eye teeth for weeks. Three out of four are through now, so hopefully the last one will erupt soon and we can get back to normal.
