My 'Mommy Friends' and I got together at Karen's place for brunch recently and I can't believe how grown up the little ones are getting!! One of these little nuggets had 7 teeth at 6 months! No, it wasn't mine. :o) In case you've forgotten, the group consists of: Kim & Isaiah, Renee & Oliver, Lisa & Finn, Karen & Max, Elizabeth & Sam, and Christsa & Jack.(Missing-Margaux & Natalie)
Cute little Oliver with mommy
Well, the kiddo has grown up since I last posted and is now nearing 9 months! It is amazing how quickly they grow in 1 year of life!

New Friends: Kim & Isaiah, Lisa & Finn, Karen & Max, Christa & Jack, Renee & Oliver, Me & Alex, Elizabeth & Sam, Margaux & Natalie.
So, after we took some end of class pictures, Alex and I decided to head upstairs to the 4th floor where I work. I had meant to stop up there weeks ago, but never had quite made it up there usually due to a mr. crabby pants or a very tired mommy. This time we made it up there to see all my coworkers. It was so great to see them all and I can say that I was surprised how much I missed them and my job. I love my job and feel so fortunate to be able to do what I do for a career. The Family Care Center at FSH truly is a great place to have a baby and to work. Okay, before I get too mushy, I'll continue on with our day's events. Well, once on the 4th floor Alex was alert, sweet and even smiled at Emily, a co-worker of mine. That quickly and without warning changed to ear peircing screams almost instantly thereafter. Long story short we managed to settle him down, but not before a quick diaper change and feeding. I meant to stop down on the 2nd floor to see all my great L & D co-workers, but Alex had just fallin asleep. I quickly took the opportunity to head home. Now usually my little man sleeps very well in his car seat, but lately if I have to stop the car at a light or even slow down, he starts to wail. This is what happened at our first stop on the way home. This would have made me pull over, but somehow I have gotten good at reaching back, while driving, to give him his pacifier. Not very safe I'm sure, but like I said, I've gotten good at it. Once we got home I fed him and then it was back on the road again to see daddy play basketball in Fridley. I think he was so tuckered out from all the commotion of the day that he slept the entire way there, through Brent's game, and halfway home...waking only because I had hit a stoplight. :o) All in all it was a good day, but needless to say, he and haven't done much today. Happy lazy Friday & yay for the weekend! Love, Joni
