I decided to post

I'm still here. Things are fine. Busy. We totally haven't unpacked. Henry has started walking! I can't believe it, still. It's so cute. He giggles every time he walks from the novelty of it all. It's amazing how much he improves every day. He keeps me very, very busy as he is the definition of an active toddler. He is still really good, but because he was such an easy baby it is quite a change for me to have to attend to him so much. He's still pretty good at playing by himself, but he definitely needs a lot more of my attention than he used to.



I guess now that we've moved we need to starting thinking about the paperwork for #2. I'm still so overwhelmed by readying this house for living that paperwork seems insane, but I don't want to wait too long before starting because I'm sure it's going to be a long wait.

I'm thinking of getting a part time job and having Henry go to daycare a couple times a week. I haven't done anything about it except look at job listings, but I'm thinking about it. I haven't started looking at daycare options yet either, but I think I want to wait until he is 15 months old, so I still have 2 months.

We love the new house and don't miss the old one at all. Well, the one thing I miss is the HUGE garage we used to have. This one is kind of small and cramped. But that seems a tiny, little thing in the grand scheme of things so I'm not complaining. It's weird getting used to being in the quiet suburbs, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. There are lots of nice people and other moms at home on my street, so that's really nice. I'm taking Henry to music class once a week. We've only gone once, but he seemed to really enjoy it.

I'm at a loss about what to say here. I've lost my blogging mojo, I guess. I'm not even sure anyone really reads my blog much anymore, but if there's something I'm leaving out, let me know. I hope everyone is doing well.

We are still reading...! You don't have to post as often but we still like updates.

And if/when you start the paperwork for #2 we'll want to know what's going on... :)

Henry is still as cute as a button!

I read - love to hear how you are doing, and the ordinariness (pretty sure that's not a word) but just that you have a nice life as a family as what you went through to create it. Your son looks wonderful and I remember when my DD started walking, so cute!

I just found your blog a couple of weeks ago, and I've been religiously reading since. Big fan! I'm also going through your archives (slowly), since I'm in the earlier stages of IF (3 failed clomid rounds so far) and trying to decide whether to go ahead with IVF or head straight for adoption. It's been an enormous help to read your blog and see your journey from the complete crap of IF to your adorable son and hopefully a new sibling soon. I love seeing your updates.

Just letting you know that I'm still here and still reading. I'm glad you're getting settled in the new house. YAY for Henry's walking! New adventures will be forthcoming, I'm sure! Write again when you want to or just if you need to connect with the blogosphere. That's what we're here for. :)
