So much fun! You ladies look stunning — and so thin! I hope I look that good after having this baby.

I can’t wait until next year — I plan on being there. Maybe I’ll become famous and be interviewed by you ladies ;)

Suzanne and Nell, we’ll definitely see you there next year and interview you both!

Nell, I have a rather funny story about how I lost my baby weight… I’ll post about it soon.

I’m so glad you all did these videos. I am having so much fun watching them :). It makes me feel apart of BlogHer too and helps to get to know the blogging mommas better.

You both look absolutely amazing and seem so natural as the reporters. Are you sure you didn’t do this in a second life hehe ;)

I am responding to a blog regarding Max’s drooling and medication:

MedLine Plus and other sites can give you detailed info on most drugs. This site may also enummerate other side effects.
Is it possible the same doctor could be approached about additional methods (other than invasive medications) to slow/stop Max’s drooling?
Another consideration for giving a new medicine: a little of my background-I am an adult with ADHD and take several needed hormones -insulin, thyroid replacement, tri-est. Somewhere in this medication soup are medicines which cause severe drying to my mouth. I produce very little saliva.

I am not advocating other meds for Max. I am suggesting a conversation with the dentist about what can happen to teeth and oral tissues when these are consistently dry.
This may give you another perspective.

May God assist you and your husband on these and other difficult decisions,

One more add for saving water. In the summer I run my dehumidfier in the basement. I pour that water into the washing machine. A couple of buckets give me free water for my small load, or it is that much less to fill the washer. Also, I don’t have any problems when using my rinse water from the wash tub for the next “wash” load. I have a water saving phobia and try to implent your ideas as much as possible.
