Did you know that.... is our FOUR YEAR bloggiversary? I really didn't imagine we would be still blogging, after blogging through the painfully long conception of Theo, S. being pregnant, Theo's birth and babyhood, and now my nascent pregnancy. Crazy, no? There are some blogs I've been following from the beginning, and some I've just found, and others who have sadly just disappeared from the blog world after enduring too much pain. I ache for those friends we started with whose journey did not end up the way they wanted or expected.

On Saturday, we attended a huge picnic to celebrate our hospital's 20-year IVF program. There were nearly 300 IVF-conceived kids there. We got to see our doctors and nurses again, get a free lunch, and free admission to the city museums. It was really wonderful and--amazing--to see how many people's journeys happily ended in family. What was surprising, though, was that there were hardly any other lesbian couples there--we only saw a few. But I know many of them use our doctor for IUIs and are lucky enough to stop there. It made us a little teary-eyed and oh-so grateful for our little lovey.

Thanks for sharing your great post,wish you have a nice day,happy every day!Replica OMEGA Watches James Bond replica Watch
In the James Bond books by Ian Fleming, Bond wore a replica Rolex but for the past few movies, Bond's been an constellation omega man. Pierce Brosnan wore an Omega Seamaster Professional Diver in his James Bond movies (Brosnan was also an omega oil spokesperson).This is a golf watch? You are looking at the new jewelry version of the Double Eagle Co-Axial Chronograph from Omega. fish oil omega has released two James Bond watches before and the one shown above, the new omega seamaster watch James Bond Limited Edition is one of the first James Bond omega seamaster watches to be equipped with the co-axial escapement. The 41mm stainless steel watch uses the automatic omega de ville caliber 2500. The dial features the James Bond logo and the second hand has the 007 gun logo on one side. The watch is a "limited edition" of 10,007 pieces. I wonder if this means that Daniel Craig will be sporting an replica Omegain the new James Bond movie.
