Old friends, outings, upcoming posts and pets

I'm so happy to see updates from some fellow SMC bloggers that I haven't heard from in awhile. Welcome back Jo from All That She Wants  and Heather from MammaWannabe   I have missed you both!  I can't believe how big your little ones are now -  I remember when they were just two lines on a pregnancy test!

I finally decided on a stroller and I freaking love it!  I went with the Cit.y because it was roomier for Mr. O.  I used it today for the first time going in and out of a few stores and it was so much easier.  I didn't have to chase Mr. O around and it handled like a dream.  T the baby was loving it too since he had a better view than he usually does being trapped in the baby bucket.  It was beyond adorable looking down and seeing tiny baby toes peeking out.  

T the baby is going to be 11 months old tomorrow.  I really can't believe we are closing in on a year since his arrival.  I have the usual "waaahhh, my baby is a year old!" stuff going on all mixed up with still processing his dramatic birth and NICU stay.  I think you'll be seeing a few posts about that in the next few weeks because I think it might help to get it out. 

The boys now have pets!  Mr. O has been wanting a pet fish for weeks so we finally went and got some.  He picked out a pink fish tank and two mickey fish (one for him and one for his brother).  He named them after himself and his brother since they are friends.  They both like to watch them swimming around.

4 years ago and other randoms

Mr. O has existed for 4 years.  I remember walking out to my car after the IUI with my hand on my belly and trying to will those swimmers to find that egg.  I started to tell O that today was an important day but it got complicated quickly so I changed the subject to ice cream.  Maybe his conceptioniversary is a day for me to remember on my own.  I know I would be creeped out if my parents insisted on telling me about the moment I was created. 

Life is crazy busy here and I'm working on a list of fun things that I want to do with the boys this summer.  Last year was kind of lame since I was miserable from all day morning sickness for the first half and stuck in the NICU with T for the second half.

Trying to decide what kind of double stroller to get is making me nuts.  I just can't make up my mind!  I have narrowed it down to the B.o.b or the Ci.ty  Any one have feel strongly about one or the other? 

Seeing lots of fellow SMCs trying for #2 and it's giving me a touch of baby fever.  Good luck, Ladies! 

I love watching the boys interact with each other.  T loves his big brother - especially big brother's hair!  He gets the biggest smile on his face anytime O's hair is in grabbing distance.  So far O is too quick for him to get a good grip but it's only a matter of time.  I'm sure there will be tears but for now it's fun to watch.
