So, lots to update. Where to begin... well, since I am sipping on red wine, I guess we all can safely assume I'm not pregnant. Actually, it's not an assumption at all. I'm not pregnant. It's CD46 for me... no AF, but no BFP either. Not sure what the hell is going on - my body just can not regulate and give me a normal cycle. I don't get it. But, I guess abnormal is normal for me. I'll give it another few days and call my OB for another prescription to give me AF back. I just hate that I'll have to go in for blood work to prove I'm not pregnant before starting another cycle yet again. It's such a slap in the face to do blood work when you know you're not pregnant. Frustrating.
Max turned 8 months, and like every other newer-mother, I do not know where the time went. He is all over the place - rolling, army-scooting, crawling, finger-walking, standing up on furniture... it's crazy. He still has two teeth... so funny that they came in at 3 months and he hasn't gotten any more yet. He is a little lover bug who says "da da da da" and nothing about "ma ma". We're working on it :)
Life is busy... I finally feel that, in the last two months or so, we've struck a groove. Mr. D and I are both totally back in the swing of things at work, working feels a part of us, and parenthood has fully become part of everything we do. I am shocked that it took this long, but it was a process... getting accustomed to our new routines, fully embracing all of our changes... it was a long time coming. BUT - it's awesome. It works for us. And we love everything about our new normal.
A few smaller, but fun updates:
- I convinced Mr. D that we need a trip to Vegas - YAY! We're going with three other couples in September.
- Max's first plane ride will be in August - a trip to Washington DC for Mr. D's cousin's wedding.
- Max has eaten every kind of baby food Ger.ber has to offer - nothing this kid doesn't like. He loves food! This is why my 8 month old weighs 26 pounds :)
I'll post more soon - Max is getting antsy... dinnertime.
