Thanks, Kam and Fram -- I just ordered some similar ones!
Liz - That's awesome that DD is up to 16 lbs! My DS is small but not tiny and I don't think he was much more than 17 or so at 8 months, so she's moving on up! The trying-to-crawl phase can be funny, if frustrating. My DS somehow thought doing a downward facing dog kind of pose would help him move for about 2 weeks when he was learning. We thought it was funny, though he didn't so much :-).
Med - That's awful, but good that you have perspective that it's still a good place. I start work early, so DH always does dropoff, and he recently told me that he almost always feels crappy afterwards, even if DS isn't clingy and fussy. Probably doesn't help that DH works from home so he has to come home to all of DS's toys but no little guy there!
Luv - That story just made my heart melt -- ahhh! So cute! What an awesome big sister. Now stop it -- you're going to make me want to have another one :-).
Speaking of having second kids, those of you who have: how did you decide (or DID you really actively decide) when to have #2? DH and I agreed that we'll most likely "pull the goalie" again around my 33rd b-day in December, when DS will be 22 mos. It took us about 4 mos. to get pg with DS, so if all goes well, we'd have another around when DS is 3. It feels like a good age gap to me, and both DH and I kind of already want another, but I'm already worrying over daycare stuff. Having 2 kids in daycare would basically negate my salary, but I wouldn't want to pull DS out entirely just as he's getting close to school age. I know it'll all work out somehow if #2 is in the cards for us, but I'm just curious how it went for you all...
