Weekend fun with cousins

What a crazy busy weekend!  We saw all of Daughter's cousins!  

We were able to get a couple cute pics :)

Ordered my Estrace :)

Woot!  I ordered my Estrace for our consult/mock transfer in December!

I called yesterday to make sure they were still going to send out orders for the lab tests and the estrace... she said that my file was marked "pending" or something like that.  She wasn't sure why, but then she emailed me everything I needed.

There's one pharmacy out of Maryland that Dr Keenan trusts to have generic Estrace that is close enough to the original.  So I ordered from there, and it was only $12.99!  That's way cheaper than last time when I had to get name brand.

But, the pharmacy is not licensed in ND... there's a law in ND that all pharmacies must be 51% or more owned by the pharmacists.  (I believe this is a very dumb law... luckily, it's being voted on in November and I know how I'll be voting.)  So they have to ship it to my parents at the lake (in MN).

Dumb beyond all dumb.  Or I could spend $300 for the same pills from a local pharmacy.

Sleep regression...

Sleep regression.

Ugly, disgusting phrase...

Last night Daughter went to sleep at 7:30.  Then she was up at 10:30, 3:30, and 5.

Mama is tired.  But once I got her back to bed (after the 5:00 wake up I just put her back in the crib and let her cry it out, as I'd read ) she slept till after 9, so she's wide awake today!

If it happens tonight, I'm going to try to let her CIO.  It'll be hard, but that seems to be the consensus on line.  

Any other ideas, mamas out there?

14 months!

Oh goodness, the time has gone so quickly!  

This morning before the sun rose

At the zoo with a cousin


  • She's toddling everywhere now. 
  • She folds her hands when we say grace.  It's so cute!  
  • she gets into everything.  So curious!
  • her hair is getting really long.
  • each day she naps differently.  She's going between 2 naps and 1 nap... 
  • She likes to climb up onto the chair, stand against the back, and rock it.

Quilting retreat!

So much fun!  So many amazing ladies there.  Most of us were doing the True Blue pattern by Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie's Quilts)





Almost got my True Blue quilt top done. Just need to put the piano key border on.


I already have the strips sewn together for the piano key border...


I used the Folklore fat quarter bundle by Moda (Lily Ashbury) and I love it!  I'm probably going to add a solid border outside of the piano key border to make it a queen size.  This is going on our bed :)

The house is less magical when I'm gone

Mat always jokes about our "magic floors" or "magic dishes" because he leaves dirty laundry, dishes, etc. around and "magically" it ends up clean and put away.

This weekend Daughter and I went to my sisters for Nieces baptism. May had to work so he stayed here. When I came back he said he missed us and the house was less magical without me :)

Some pics from the weekend...

We've got a climber!

She climbs on everything!  Takes the occasional tumble but she's a pretty tough cookie. 

A while back I heard some keys jangling. I turned around and she had climbed up the step stool and was grabbing things on the counter!  No more keeping the step stool in the kitchen!
