NaComLeavMo and the Holiday Weekend

NaComLeavMo!! This stands for National Comment Leaving Month! It started over the holiday weekend, and it's just loads of fun! Bottom line is, blogging is fun, but getting comments is funner! From May 25th - June 25th I have to leave 5 comments a day on blogs that I do not usually read ... There is a list of blogs involved if you click the link above. I also have to return one comment a day to a new person that comments on my blog! Loads of fun I tell you! And even more interesting is that non-IF blogs are involved, so it's a way to start reading about some stuff that isn't all infertilty and pregnancy and babies.

At the same time, this a call to yell at you lurkers. Come say hi! All you need to do is click on the comments link below and let me know you are reading. I KNOW my family is out there reading and not even saying hi. You don't even need an account or anything!

Ok, now on to what's been going on ... I'm much better after my surgery, thank you for all the well wishes. Sadly, I only have 4 percocet left, and I am saving them. For what, I have no idea. But they are like little pills of wonderfulness, and I am sure one day I will have back pain that will warrant their use.

So I have multiple weekends to cover! Last weekend we went down to Eric's sister's house to celebrate both his mom and his sister's birthdays. She has two kids, Brandon and Allie, and the twins had a blast with them! They loved to follow them around and attempt to do things that they did.

Hailey is currently in this stage where she wants to sit on EVERYTHING! She is constantly walking backwards and trying to sit on anything ... people, toys, even soccer balls! She's such a goof ...

Here's Jake playing in Lori's backyard ... He looks like he is very annoyed by us ...

And since I mentioned Hailey's desire to sit on EVERYTHING, my sister bought the twins chairs. They are too cute! Hailey's is purple and has a Dora the Explorer picture on it ... Jake's is green and is the Backyardigans. They just LOVE them ... they'll be running around the room, and suddenly just go over to their chairs and sit in them and take a break. Look how cute!

Oh and want to hear also how wonderful Aunt Chrissy is?? She bought them this adorable wagon for their birthday! We finally got them to the park this beautiful Memorial Day weekend, and they loved being pulled around in it! We put them in the wagon at opposite ends with some toys between them ...

but Hailey didn't like being that far from her brother ... so she ended up like this ...

Then Eric took these beautiful pictures of the twins at the park ... I just love them ... I think my kids are just beyond beautiful.

And on one final happy note (dripping with sarcasm), the twins have ear infections. They've both been sniffly and coughing all weekend, and had slight fevers, which I thought was due to all the teeth coming in. We ended up taking them to the doctor tonight, since they both had slight fevers at daycare today. Hailey's got a double ear infection, Jake has a single. At least they got started on their meds.

That's all for tonight. I have so much to type, but I'll save it for another day.

Oh, and LEAVE A COMMENT!!!

Enjoy,
Erica

Here's a comment for you!! Those photos are just lovely - I love those little chairs just made for children. My nephew and niece have one and they love it, although they prefer to climb all over the back of the sofa!!

I agree, your babes are beyond beautiful!!! ;o) I just love their little chairs & wagon! I see the love Hailey & Jake have for one another. So precious...

So sorry to hear they're sick and glad you took them to the Dr. Hope the meds do the trick quick!

Hi! I'm returning your comment. Thanks for stopping by :-)

Your kids are adorable! And I love that wagon. My little brother and I used to have one when we were small and loved it.

The twins are sooo adorable! This gives me hope that IVF may - eventually, some day - actually work.
