Where or Where is MoMo

Oh's been a long time since the last time I posted, but we've been dealing with lots and lots of crazy things. First of all we are now in and moved out of the Wi.nd.y Ci.ty. It was an adventure but we finally got here.

First of all, B got sick with R.S.V the day before we were supposed to drive out here. I took him to the doctor the Thursday before we were going to drive-which was supposed to be the 27th of May. Our doctor didn't like the way he was sounding so she sent us to the ER. When we got to the ER, the doctors didn't sound as concerned. They gave us a prescription, and sent us home. They told us to check back with our regular doctor in 2 days-which was Saturday. He didn't sound any better on Saturday and when we got to the doctor's office, our doctor was mad and couldn't believe that the hospital sent us home--btw, I forgot to mention that the hospital is a HUGE Chil.dre.ns Hosp in make a long long story short, we ended up in the hospital, B was in isolation for 3 days! We had to change our plans--we stayed in Chi.cago for 2 more weeks to make sure that B was better.

So here we are in our new "home". I am going to be honest and say that it's been a very difficult transition for us, me especially. We made a lot of friends in Chi.cago and it was really hard to leave that all behind. Our neighborhood is very different compared to Chi.cago. We were able to walk out of our town home and walk to restaurants, grocery store, Wrig.ley Fie.ld, the lake, ICE CREAM(I love ice cream)--but now we have to drive everywhere-S and I were never big fans of driving! We had a 2000 Ho.n.da in Chicago and it only had 22K miles and I had the car for 7 years!! The other downside about out new neighborhood is that there are not a lot of kids in the area. The majority of the residents here are older-like my parents age--so it makes it really hard to meet people. I was trying to find baby classes that B and I can attend, but most of them are those franchise type music classes. Again, I think it is the nature of a town that doesn't have a lot of children. So here we are--trying to make the best of it. I guess the good thing is that S, B and I are getting lots of quality time together.

Now on the work front....I will be starting work again on Monday. The good thing about my gig is that I am going to be working from home most of the time. I will probably go to N.ew. Y.or.k once or twice a week. This will save me a ton of time since I won't have to do the 45 min. train ride into the city. I found a daycare for B--but now I am contemplating getting a nanny--but that is another post all together!!!

Updates on B:

He is doing great. He will be 7 months this Friday. During his 6 months appointment he weighed 15pds 130z and he was 25 1/2 inches long. He is now eating a lot of solids. He loves carrots and squash! He still eats 5 times a day. 2 of these feedings only consists of milk and the other three he gets veggies and fruits with his milk. He is rolling over and scooting (sp?) a lot!!! He can't sit up on his own yet, which was worrying me a lot--I need to stop since I know he will eventually get there. He likes to laugh a lot and makes these noises that none of us can really decipher. It is very cute.

I tried to keep updated with all of your blogs but I was still pretty behind. I promise to catch up on everyone this week...please be patient with me. I hope everyone is doing well.

Welcome to Connecticut. I know that it's hard when you don't have any friends or family nearby. My friends and family are only 2 hours north or south and we still sometimes feel really lonely. I'm going to start going to My Gym with Aislinn. Maybe there's one in your area that you can go to? If I find anything else I'll let you know. We should get together sometime :)

Hi MoMo!!!!
I was so elated to see a post from you! I'm glad that B is better and sorry the transition has been difficult. I don't know if you've popped into my blog lately, but I wanted to tell you that I'm 13 weeks pregnant with twins. We were pregant with triplets, but one of our babies became an angel and was sent to heaven around 9 weeks.

I'm glad you're back in the blogosphere!!!!
