Thanks for starting the thread mary. I'm not sure how holly jolly I am. Ha ha!!!

sweets- Lana has 6 teeth parker 2. He is actually sleeping 8-9 hrs straight. It's consistently Lana waking with her hands in her mouth. I've just been feeding her and taking her into bed with me. It works so who cares? THen when parker wakes at 6 am, I take him in too. Not sure how long they will both fit in that little twin with me. Ha ha. I should get a pictures of that.

Thanks for saying I have a talent with pictures. the babies make me look good and so does the sepia. I take like 20 pictures then narrow it down to 3 or 4. you should see my video, you would love it.

Oh and i changed my mind. I want all things twilight. Candy, games, cards. I'm a total geek. I wish Tom would let me have an Edward calendar, but I'm sure he wouldn't.

Mary- Eclipse DVD comes out in a few days. The 4th or the 6th I think. Target has the best version if you are going to buy it. you know I am and I aint waiting til christmas to open it either!!

Doctor went well I guess. So depressing do all that work just to give a healthy baby two shots and a fever. :x :x Lana is 14lbs, a gain of three lbs in 2 mos. Parker is now 16.5 lbs

Oh, I LOVE twilight!!! :mrgreen: I have the books here and I'm reading Eclipse again to get it fresh in my head before I get the movie Saturday. I am so excited to see it!!! DH even sits down to watch the movies with me and actually likes them, although he won't let anyone know that one, lol.

GARD! I love the pics!!! I like the one with them on their tummies looking at you the best. Yep, that's the brother. Second divorce. I feel pretty helpless in it all at this point. I wish things were different for him, but I just get sad dwelling on it. All I can do is pray for better decisions for him in the future and happiness for him and my niece and nephew.

Mary - Jacob is still hanging in there. You know we are all so excited to meet him, but glad he is staying where he is supposed to for now. KUP!!!

Amers - Another Twilight gal.....you and gard and mary will have lots to talk about :wink: I just like it when they talk about their husbands reactions to the craze...makes me giggle :D That is how my DH acts when I talk about my Ryan Reynolds crush or make DH watch any chick flick.

Hey PP. GL with the TTC and the finishing school!!! Cheering you on!!!

Hey Sweets! Lyn! and everyone else.

carter- OK I had never heard of Ryan Reynolds until last week. So random. He is cute though. My husband and I have a subtle understanding of my crush on Edward and Rob. He knows it turns me on, so he doesn't complain, but I haven't come out and said I have a crush. I think I have said "I just like Edward, not Jacob"

I have also gone on about how Tom is like Edward and he doesn't want to hear it. He does like the movies. He will go with me,but won't watch it again at home. He always asks me the names, now what was the name of the first one again? He doens't want to know anything that happens so we can't talk about breaking dawn yet, but he knows it starts with a wedding.

Amers- A while back mary posted a shirt that said "shhh...don't tell daddy, mommy's reading twilight again" That is so our house. I'm embarrassed to admit I have read all 4 plus midnight sun about 7 times now. I also underline the parts that make it in the movie. I am also following the filming of breaking dawn on the internet. You can also see most of the eclipse DVD on the internet now too.

I totally have a problem, but it's getting better slowly and it's my little hobby I have just come to terms with. :oops:

Things are finally winding down today so thought I would check in while I have some free time. The boss took this week off w/o letting most of know ahead of time so when he comes in Monday and realizes I am gone for 3 months I'm sure he will be having a panic attack, oh well not my problem :roll: . I've only been reminding him for the past 2 weeks :? . I'm so glad I decided to start my maternity leave early this time, b/c things are way to stressful around here. Our location is getting audited next week, then with all the EOTYEAR stuff coming up its just wayyyyy to much for me to handle.

On the babyfront nothing new, I go back on Monday for my weekly check. She told me the soonest she can induce is 39 weeks but she didn't actually say she was going to induce me at that point so I need to ask her if nothing progresses by then what's the plan. Geez I sure hope she doesn't make me go to 40 weeks. Kerry would die if I had him on his birthday (Dec 14) wouldn't that be the greatest B-DAY gift? As far as I know he hasn't dropped yet, some pelvic pressure but not alot like I had when jen dropped. Still having tons of BH's, some very intense but for the most part they go away once I lay down. Overall I feel pretty good, not so tired anymore (just wait huh Nicole :wink: ), and still moving around ok, but just very uncomfortable around the upper belly/ribcage section. I can't stand for too long or my back starts to hurt but thats expected. Just imagine a turtle on it back trying to get up, thats what I look like when I lay down :wink: . Yoga pants are my life line, so uncomfortable wearing jeans to work and outside the home. My hospital bag is packed and ready to roll. Everytime Jenna sees my stretch marks she says "OH MAMA YOUR TUMMY IS GETTING SO BIG, MUST BE TIME FOR JACOB TO COME HOME ," Almost Jen, almost! I can't believe he could be here any day now :shock: :shock: . Feeling alot better about labor then I have been, told Kerry last night "I CHANGE MY MIND, I AM HAVING THE EPIDERAL." He laughed, he knew I would. I also told him I would rather our parents (and Jen) come to the hospital after the baby(or until I am in active labor) is born instead of being there waiting the entire time, he didn't argue with me but I could tell he didn't agree. I don't want to hurt his feeling but his mom nearly drove me nuts last time, I love the woman but she's very nervene and talks all the time. I just think having as much calm and quiet as possible would make the process so much easier on me KWIM? I talked to both sets of parents last night about it and they seem understand so I feel better about the decision.


Nicole -- Thanks, I love using Kerry for Jacobs middle name. I really wasn't feeling Jacob Edward but I told him if thats what he wanted (in honor of his great-grandpa) that was ok. Well the other day he got Jenna to say MY BROTHERS NAME IS JACOB KERRY GRANIER, and I did a double-take. I asked him if he serious and he said yeah so I happy the name game was finally over! I also love the idea of calling him "JK" later on or even 'lil Kerry.' Really great candid shots. They are all adorable but the crib one is my fav, and you got them both to look at the same time! As soon as Jen seen them she said "LOOK THOSE ARE Burrr-ana's BABIES!" Then she wanted to know where was Brianna, questions questions all day long :wink: . I agree with everyone else, you are learning to work that camera really well....good job! I've been looking at zoom lens for mine, hoping to get a good deal christmas deal.


Amers -- You will love Eclipse! I love the movies but probably will never get around to reading the books, all my free time goes to sewing. Anyways welcome to the fan club! I've been giving DH hints about buying all 3 of them for Christmas. Let me and Nicole know what you think after you watch Eclipse!!!


Sweets -- Sorry to 'have you going,' I wasn't even going to call the dr about the BH but DH begged me too. It would take him an 1 1/2-2 hrs to get from work to the hospital so thats why he wanted me to get checked. Like everyone said, its best to be safe then sorry. To answer your question about work....honestly I have no idea what the plans are for after I leave. My boss is the worst procrastinator so I am assuming the 'higher ups' don't even know I am going on leave yet. Last time they had a receptionist from another location come in a few days a week to help out. My boss knows our billing system but not that well. I'm sure he'll do what he can, and have someone else come in for a few days a week to do everything else. As long they don't burn down my office while I'm away I will be happy..ha ha.



PP-- The plan is a vaginal birth, since I don't have any health issues. Last time I was 5 mins aways from having a C-section b/c jen was stuck in the birth canal but with the help of a vacuum she came out. I tore really bad but lets not bring that subject up with Jacobs birth around the corner. I hope Jacob comes out much easier, Jens head was bruised and very cone-shaped from beeing in the b.c for so long. I didn't realize you were knocked out for Mickey, that must have sucked! My mom had to be knocked out for my birth and I remember her saying how it ruined the experience, and she didn't believe them when she came to and they told her it was a girl (b/c she wanted one so bad).



Carter-- Oooooh Ryan Reynolds, he is a cutie, especially in Blade II where he has some serious muscles going on....drool drool. Ok lets not get started on that subject, last thing I need is my contacts fogging up :wink: . I agree, its funny to hear how our husbands act over our crushes. Although I will never admit to DH when I think another guy is hot. Last week we seen Edward poster in WM, he asked if I wanted it for Christmas, I said NO WAY!, thankgoodness he didn't ask about the Jacob one :oops: :wink: .



Sorry so long :(. Well better go need to make a few calls before quitting time. TTYL!!

Hello my ladies ....

mary - thank you ever so much for starting a lovely new thread for us. Goodness, but for the life of me I couldn't at all remember how to remotely start a new one. Brain hiccup big time on it. You are so calm knowing that you're going out, that things will manage to get done - maybe not the best or exactly right while you are gone, but done and you're right, it's not your problem. I always worry when I'm away about stuff that needs done, or something I forgot to do. Have found that whenever I'm supposed to go on vacation, the couple of days before always go to H E double hockey sticks. Happens every time!! Am glad for you too that you're going out a bit early. Gives you a little time to rest (hopefully) before Jacob Kerry (love it, by the way) arrives and with the holidays, lets you have some special time with Boo before the new addition. How cute that she says "it's time for him to come home". Guessing J is getting anxious for her baby brother. Will that last, or do you think that she'll get a case of being way jealous once he's here? Kids are so funny!

gard - does that mean I should gather up all the great Twilight stuff I find and send you, mary and amers special gift baskets???? I would do that you know! And yes, you are very talented at taking great pictures. I would love to say that I am, but sadly, with the camera I have, as much as I like it, the pictures just don't snap quick enough to really capture things well. It's frustrating to me. Would love to have a digital 35mm type camera. My s-i-l got a fabulous one for her bday. Unfortunately, it's not in my budget at the moment and I don't think Santa will be dropping one off for me..... despite having been a very good girl!! I was wondering from the pics how many teeth Lana and Parker each have. They're growing so quickly and changing all the time, aren't they? Again, I'm constantly in awe at how you busy, busy mommies are all so organized and manage things so well.

carter - that's so sad that he's going through another divorce. Don't want to dwell on it, or make you sad, but I do remember you saying that it was really quick, etc, when they did get married. Unfortunately, the divorce rate is higher for 2nd marriages even. Tough to think about. Sometimes all we can do is pray for the person(s) and hope for better things. I know even now sometimes that's all I can do when I see/hear about some of the things that are happening to him/them. Wish I could tune it all out, but it's not that simple unfortunately. So are your girls getting excited about the holidays? Is your back still holding out, or what's up with that? Don't know about you, but I'd like to find out again what it feels like to not be in constant pain.

Hey to everyone else. Getting ready to jump on my list o stuff for the evening ... as usual. It might be one of those nights though where some of it just doesn't happen. If I sit here much longer though, none of it will get done! :roll: :roll: :roll: Happy December to everyone. Can't believe that the holidays and a new year will be here before we know it! Where has the time gone????

mary, the bag, bib and christmas decorations look wonderful!! very impressive for a pregnant lady. Last christmas I was pregnant too, but not as far along as you are.

you have a good attitude about work, you told them you were leaving, they've seen your tummy growing, and they chose to not prepare, it's their problem now and they will survive. at the very least they will appreciate you more.

looking forward to your leave!!

Oh, I have another idea for Jenna, you can put an activity for her in the nursery. We have color wonder pens and paper and a lamp and B can color on the floor while I mess with the babies. B is really starting to feel the pain of my lack of attention. I am too. It's a difficult time for us all, but we are adjusting.

sweets- Lana Beth is an early teether and already has 6 big teeth in her little mouth. THat's why we've all been sort of miserable for a few weeks. It's also my fault because anytime she wakes, I cave and give her milk and take her into bed. and him too...so now they are both waking frequently all night expecting goodies. So this weekend, I have to "ferberize" them. Her teeth are in now so they should be hurting less.

My goal for today is to get my christmas cards done before my Eclipse DVD shows up in the mail.

I also need to do Tom's presents and the video and wrap and watch Eclipse....busy busy!

Hey Sweets,

my second MRI came out about the same... and doesn't explain my current symptoms so the neurosurgeon is having me do an EMG nerve conduction study on Wed. I am tired of hurting...hope they figure this out soon. We are going for a consult on Monday for Ella. Turns out there is an issue with her maxillary frenum. The tissue that connects your lip to your gums, is attached between her front two teeth. Anyway, we are going to see an oral surgeon that works with kids at Children's Hospital all the time. I will let you all know what we find out. Poor kiddo she already had to have eye muscle surgery when she was younger. i know things could be worse, but i just hate that she might have to have more surgery so young. Luckily, this would be a minor surgery that they would do with a laser in her mouth.
