Too cute.  That reminds me, I need to try to find some rain boots for my daughter.  Who the hell knew they were "out of season" in all stores around here in the spring.

Speaking of which, Lola learned all her letters and numbers (side benefit of her iPad fixation) and now has an obsession now with reading license plates.  I have to distract her when we're walking through parking lots or we'll never get out :mellow:

Awesome. :thumbsup:

Be careful what you wish for;  my youngest niece was in a "rain boots" phase for a good year and a half.

Yeah, already there. She wears Tommy's around the house all the time.

Tommy has had a few interesting ones. Nothing quite as dark as those but still dark. Like when he hadn't seen one of his friends for a couple months & asked me "Does Tito think I'm dead?" :huh:

So my wife had a doctor's appointment today.  I've missed a few, but today I could go.

When we went, the doctor, as hard as she tried, could not find the baby's heartbeat.  The doctor was pretty calm about it, but insisted we get into an ultrasound.  Today.  Which sent my wife into tears.

So we got into an ultrasound in the late afternoon.  Baby was just fine.  Just had his/her back to us.  But since we were in there, the ultrasound technician wanted to do the full workup.  Which included asking about gender.  After the big scare my wife really wanted to know the gender.

It's another boy!  Yay three boys! :unsure:

GF?

I had a kid 10 months ago.  This one was a... surprise.  All the more surprising since the first two took significant doses of fertility drugs.   :)

You have beat me now Canadian-me but I still hold out hope we will aim for #3 when I finish my degree.

Speaking of my EE degree...watching my grades being reported with white knuckles, just finished my last final today.  That Probability class was a bitch.  I got a B+ on my advanced programming class at least.
If we can hit that bull's-eye, the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

GF?

Gay Fox

Which is what posed the question mark - GF hadn't posted much of anything in the thread, so I assumed you were talking to me.
