Touchy-feely Tuesday

I stuff I want to say today, but I cannot seem to figure out how to start. 
So I guess I will just bullet everything.
  • Just got my car inspected, oil changed, and brakes repaired.  I needed to get all of it done.  Especially the brakes.
  • FIL is thinking of buying me a new car when the new models come out in the fall.  I am thinking Hon.da Odyssey.  Those are really nice, and I totally want a minivan.  For real, there is no sarcasm there!
  • Hubby has actually been able to talk about what sex we would "want" if we had another child.  I think that is progress on expanding the family.  He is still freaked out about having another one, but I am calling this progress.
  • Discovered that neither of us really care about a baby's sex, as long as it is healthy.
  • Baby is much better with napping now that everyone is home, and our routine seems to be settling out.  We get one nap in the morning, and a nap in the afternoon.  He really needs both still, because he is very high energy when he is awake.  He has two speeds.  Stop and go.  I am not complaining about the morning nap, as it gives me a chance to get myself together.
  • I really need to comment more, and comment more regularly.  IComLeavWe is great, and I may sign up for it next time around to get me motivated.  Though I have sort of found it to be more like a job, and not as fun as I expect. That can feel like a lot of comments to leave, especially if you only have a short amount of time to blog and read blogs. I always feel rushed with IComLeavWe.  I prefer to leave thoughtful comments come out of my response to the blog and the blog post.  Maybe I am just too slow for it.
  • I may try to start leaving one comment somewhere every day.  And try to explore a new blog every week.  That feels more doable for me.
  • I may blog about a site I love.  It is a really great way to share pictures and stories with family and friends.
  • I love the fact that my child still wants to be in the baby carrier.  I recently learned a new way to tie the mei tai, and I still use my ergo.  Carriers can be way easier than strollers!  It is a wonderful way to take everyone on a dog walk.  Though we must look sort of odd, with two great danes, and me carrying the baby on my back.
  • I am so excited to be able to use the mei tai in the summer.  It is so much cooler than the heavyweight ergo.
  • Maybe I should do a post on baby wearing?  What do you all think?
  • I think that we are planning a trip to see MIL after Christmas.  We are debating renting a house in Yorktown or Williamsburg.  I said that I am not doing a hotel room with the baby, so renting a house seems like the best option.  We may travel at night while he is sleeping, so that we can make the trip without too much drama.  Hopefully it will all work out, and then MIL will be able to see him.  Though I am still not happy about how she has treated us.
  • While we are out there, I am hoping to see my RE about starting FET using the embryos we have leftover from IVF.
  • Really looking forward to our stay-cation this year.  We are taking the week off at the same time, and baby is going to day care his regular days.  I think it will be more relaxing than trying to travel anywhere.  Traveling with the baby totally stresses me out.  And having two baby free days will be bliss.
  • Starting to get stuff together for an Et.sy shop.  It is slow, but it is coming together.  I want to make sure I have something to sell before trying to set up the shop.  That way I can have pictures of what I am selling.
  • I will probably start by selling swaddle blankets and zippered pouches.  I may give you guys a preview of what will be there.
  • I will definitely let you know when the shop opens.
  • Finally starting to do WW again.  I started recording yesterday.  I am also using the behavior modification for motivation.  I actually got a sticker yesterday because I drank all my water, and I recorded all my food!  Go me!
  • Realized that I am very active.  I work on my feet, walk the dogs, work out on my days off, swim with the baby.  I do not even count the housework I do!
  • Also realized that I really need to eat better.  My diet is not so great.  I need more water, and less food.  It is tough being a foodie on a diet.
 That is all I can think of right now!
I hope everyone has a great week!

If you do come to Williamsburg/Yorktown, I'd love to meet you for coffee or lunch so you have a known break from the MIL (something to look forward to?).

Posts and comments are so hard to keep up with with these little crazy people running around, aren't they?
