Wouldn't it be wonderful though if you could pass someone these 7 steps and miraculously they'd get a baby out of it. I have a few friends I wish I could do that for. I think the title of the video should be "How life will be with a baby" not "how to make one". I still enjoyed it though and hope you do too.

- Moths aren't fans of wool blends (yes!) ... but that doesn't mean they still won't infiltrate (boo!)
- They like dark places.
- Best to keep the room your stash is in well vacuumed and dusted.
To prevent these little beasties:
- Store stash in plastic bags
- Store in a Cedar Chest (now this sounds like a very lovely idea)
- Don't use mothballs
There was no mention of storing your stash in a freezer (I have read this to be done as it kills any larvae).
This is also a topic that makes me rather squirmish. I'm not a fan of bugs. You know what else Google returned on the subject?
Now that just gives me the creeps. I am NOT knitting a Moth. Even if he is stuffed with lavendar and all things moth detracting. Eeewww!
I'll just stick with my plastic bags, thank you very much.

Today I opened up the first package of Cinnamon Chips sent to me by Elizabeth. These are SERIOUSLY tasty.
I'm not a big fan of raisins in cookies, but the cinnamon chips just call for them. These are delicious. I recommend you go track yourself down a bag of these chips and make some for yourselves. Tasty tasty.

It's 4:00 and I just got home with the kids from an appointment at the Children's Hospital for Grace's hemangiomas. I was going to write a post this morning about needing to advocate for your children, but deleted it halfway through typing it. I went in today to tell the surgeon that she has seen since she was 3 months old, that we would like to have her birthmarks removed. Our family doctor at her 3 year appointment suggested to us that laser surgery on the one on her jaw might be an option. Our surgeon, Dr. Fraulin, told me today that her hemangiomas are too deep and would need to be cut out. They usually do it, if we choose, at pre-school age, between 4 and 5. That would be next summer. A good time for us as Aidan would be old enough I could be the one to stay at the hospital overnight with Grace. But it's a horrible feeling to go to a hospital to tell someone that you would like your child to be harmed. The choice is ours he told me. We can decide to let them involute and see what happens, or choose that she will have a scar. I know what our choice will be, but I still headed home with a heavy heart.
I stopped at the mailbox before pulling into our drive, and your package was there. I have yet to open it, but the tears of tiredness were quickly replaced with tears of joy, perhaps even love. Thank you for somehow getting it to arrive right when I really needed something to make me smile.

We met up at the coffee shop and my girlfriend got talking to me about the treadmill voting. It appears there were some things about the vote option I was not aware of. One, that votes could be changed. Really? You could vote on Lola and then decide to change to Milly? Or vice versa (I don't want to appear biased here). She also told me there were 9 votes up on my blog, and that she had the fifth vote.
Now, I had also seen the fifth vote yesterday, and it was the opposite of what she told me. But, given votes can seemingly be changed, I'm trusting her 'vote'.
So, without furthur ado, the name of my treadmill is....
Maria, please let me know what tasty type of treats you like and I'll get a package in the mail to you! Hard candy? Sour candy? Vegan chocolates (I'm sure these must exist)...
Also pleased to let you know, I have run on Lola for 1 hour 12 minutes so far this week, which equates to just under 10K. Feeling pretty pumped about that, and that I'm now 3 pounds away from my post partum weight loss goal! Woot!
