September 2008 – A Month In Review

September 2008.

The beginning of the month marked the start of another baby making journey, and a milestone in our healing process.   After having a miscarriage in August we were cleared for take off.  Hopefully this time we will stay airborne.

September 1st also marked the one year birthday of  It’s hard to believe that I’ve been writing here for a whole year, but even harder to believe how many friends I have made online. 😀  Thank you all!

I had a slip of sanity and shaved my head…which resulted in the worst case of razor bumps on record!  Don’t worry…they healed and I am now bump free. ;D

Ace and his cousin Olivia got to experience their first Fly-In and Demolition Derby!  And I learned that it is important to find a seat before the event starts when you have two small children! Otherwise they will require you to hold them on your shoulders or in your arms for the entirety of the event.  (or until you give up and go home) 😀

Momma had a birthday.  I remember when I turned 28.  She told me how old I was.  Now that she is 28 I told her how old she was, but it didn’t work.  She replied, “I’ll never be old.  You will always be the old one.”  Life is not fair.  😆

Ace got to have a heapin’ helpin’ of apples….has conquered the bottle addiction…and has claimed Mr Clean as his “Daa eee!”

Of course I can not forget about the Wordless Wednesday pictures of Olivia by the airplane propeller and Ace at food level.  😀

    What an eventful month! Fingers crossed for the baby-making, I am sure you will have fun anyways 😛 And oh yeah, I sympathise with the whole old thing, I will always be the old one in this house .. as my children always remind me.. I am the oldest! If only that made me the boss as well!

  2. OK, the worst kept secret ever is out–Tip Dad is frugal! I write more about parenting topics over at Tip Dad and stick to finance stuff over at Frugal Dad. I’ll continue to do my best to drive some traffic your way! Thanks for the mentions.

  3. Thanks for the mention. I should say that I would definitely read and comment more but for some odd reason, our IT staff has blocked your site @ work. I can still read your posts via RSS but I can’t see pictures or click through to leave a comment. Anyway – off to read some more.

    Very cool month indeed! Thanks for the mention, I try to get by as often as I can and enjoy the reading when I do.
    Good luck with the baby making. Isn’t it strange how when kids are involved, it’s perfectly acceptable to talk about people to have sex?
