Not So Weird

Ok, so I lied. THis is supposed to be my "weird" post, but I don't have time to work on that post and be as clever as I'd like. What the h*ll. I may never got to that post, so don't hold your breath.

Today was Conor's two-year check up. He is 36 1/4" which puts him at the 90th percentile in height and at 31.5 lbs, 80th percentile in weight. In case you're wondering, our son is Big. Big, big, big with blond curly hair. I could (still) eat him up.

And God bless Twinkle, Twinkle. It's the song I sing when it's time to stop nursing and it is one of the most amazing things I've learned in the last month or so. One time through and Conor is ready to get off the boob and go to bed. Nothing has ever been that effective before. Oh JOY! The next time, we're going to start singing Twinkle, Twinkle much earlier so that we'll have that trick down ASAP. (No news on the "next one", in case you're wondering)

And although I love blogspot, I do hate that folks can post here and I can't reply to you. If you have opted to not get emails from your comments, I can't respond any more or ask questions, etc. Just thought I'd throw that out there because I've wanted to talk to some of you all off line a little bit.

Quickie garden update: this is the time when I love and hate the garden at about the same rate. The weeds are crazy but the veggies are coming in. It's too hot to go out and do much, but if I don't, it gets out of control. Did I tell you about the 12' sunflower? No, really. Twelve FEET. It was humongous. I'll get the picture up alongside the giant radish and then absolutely swear to you that we're using organic fertilizer!

It's hot as hell here. I hope you're staying cool.

i realize that lots of women get pregnant while nursing, but is it possible that perhaps there's some adverse effect happening here? maybe some women are more influenced hormonally than others. i don't know much about this stuff obviously. not my department. btw, are you planning to give a periodontal report sometime? :)

The e-mail I just now changed my settings at Blogger to "show e-mail address", but I really don't want the whole world to know it even though it's only my spam-catcher account. If that's what you mean, and if it doesn't show up here on the comment but you can access it, then fine. I'll see how this one turns out and either leave it that way, or go back and change it again.

Ohhhh, I get it -- just a live link then. That's A-OK :-) So, what you're telling us is that over the years you have somehow failed to save the addys of your various correspondents in some impeccably well-organized "Readers' addresses" folder? ;-) Dang, now I'm going to have to keep reminding myself to actually check that obscure hotmail account from time to time :-)

Wow, he's really tall. Miss M just got her stats today--34 1/2 inches and 30 1/4 lbs. And she's big! (That's the second most common comment on her appearance--the hair is the first :-)

It's been hot as hell here too. Although the thunderstorms outside signal the "break" (only 87 tomorrow--yay!).

Ursula had her three year visit today. And is the exact same size as Conor. Except that she's mysteriously 1 1/8" taller at home and the nurse wavered on whether she was 31.5 or 32#. Either way, damn - that's big!
