  • we used a fellow nestie (mrskinnirsk) back in 2007 and she's fabulous.  she has worked with several other girls on this board in the past.  we were first time homebuyers looking in the dover/portsmouth area so there are many similarities between our…
  • i love it... one of each congratulations, joy!!
  • i'm so curious to figure out which girl you're looking at....  cause i'm definitely not expecting and i don't have any info in my bio either.  ha!  i will very much enjoy being pregnant at some point in the future but not quite yet
  • i don't think our builder has dropped his prices - they are the same as they were last year. here are a few examples of places in dover that could be nice.  i don't know what your price range is so i'll find some in a few different budget zones: t…
  • kim, hillary is fabulous...  fa-bu-lous!!   good choice contacting her   she found us our townhouse and it's absolutely perfect.  she was a pleasure to work with on our househunting project and she went far above and beyond any other realtor we coul…

  • congrats to kirsten and doug - welcome sweet baby natalie
  • you're always welcome to ask any nutrition related questions   i don't post much anymore but i do still check daily and love to help out when i can.
  • nutritionally, it won't matter either way.  realistically speaking, though, you're just setting yourself up for a lifetime of warming up milk for him if you start now!  i'd go cold   don't be surprised if he doesn't take to it at first.  it's a new …
  • it's definitely hard to adjust to a toddler mindset when you're used to giving milk milk milk all day long to an infant....  but your pedi is absolutely right (and bravo to her for sticking to the true limit!  so many are too lax with the milk rules…
  • like the first poster, i also have Hashi's and am hypo.  i found this out about 20 months ago and took meds last year, then quit because my hair started falling out (i thought from the thyroid meds - i'll never be sure though).  just 6ish months ago…
  • http://www.amazon.com/New-Parent-Apology-Cards-30/dp/0811851044 very very funny   and on a similar note, http://www.amazon.com/You-Owe-Me-Mom-Be/dp/0811856674/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1228881256&sr=1-3
  • hi!  the towns surrounding rochester are generally better than the city itself.  rochester is larger, dirtier and (in my opinion) doesn't have a good supply of shops and stores, nor does it have great restaurants or stellar schools overall.  the cri…
  • i'm a dover girl and i love it here!  i'm close to hiking, skiing, bike paths, the beach, lakes, a college (UNH - just 15 minutes away), great shopping (the outlets in kittery maine for big shopping and the whole downtown portsmouth area for smaller…
  • congratulations heather, matt and alex!  welcome miss molly
  • hey girl!! good to hear from you i'm not around here much these days but i couldn't resist saying hi!  i saw a license plate that looked similar to your initials the other day and totally thought of you. welcome back!  i'm also in a somewhat sim…
  • it looks great so far, maura!!  congratulations on what's shaping up to be a really gorgeous kitchen what color granite will you use for the countertops?
  • BB&B has their $10 off $30 coupons all the time and they sell a big multi-pack of a variety of flavors for $29.99.  In the past I've always been able to use those coupons if the purchase price is a penny less.  that would save you a bunch!  usin…

  • i'll wholeheartedly second that recommendation!  hillary sold us our house in dover a year ago and went way above and beyond to accommodate us searching from several states away. she's great at what she does and she's focused and has a great person…
  • seacoast, but my parents live in your town.  will you, by chance, be in the portsmouth/dover/rochester area anytime soon? it took a fair amount of searching, but i think i found you online.  i sent a message so be on the lookout for that - it will …
  • nic, i have all the film containers you need - probably a hundred or so at work (thanks to an older coworker who has been saving them for years and years).  you're welcome to as many as you want.
  • it can definitely work - i've known several friends who have successfully avoided pregnancy for lengths of time longer than a year before choosing to use the method to actually conceive (at which point FAM helped them target their fertile times to g…
  • if you are taking the pill correctly, you are not fertile for one moment of your month since you aren't releasing any egg at all.  avoiding sex during a few days or a week won't help or hurt anything when you're on the pill. if you think your metho…
  • originally, yes, i should have been able to purchase hard copies.  in real life?  not at this point, which sucks, because i had a big plan to frame them in a fun sequence on the wall.  it's a rather long story actually, and not quite fit for the 'ne…
  • i saw them when you posted on the knot.  beautiful!  you must be thrilled   i only wish i had hard copies of my TTD shoot too.  ugh.
  • sippy cup decay happens for the same reasons baby bottle decay happens - kids carrying around the cup and taking a sip here and there throughout the whole day, kids falling asleep at night with the cup after teeth brushing, etc.  it's the same cause…
  • aggielauren: As long as you actually have a period every month and a half, you are ovulating, just later than the 28 day stereotype. There is nothing wrong with you as long as it is consistent. i have to disagree, and this is coming from s…
  • ellen's suggestion of Barkeeper's Friend is spot on...  that's the only product i ever recommend for any sort of metal cleaning task.  it's relatively cheap (maybe 5-6 a bottle) and will last you years.  i use it to get heat spots off my stainless s…
  • Amazonia (it's a delicious churrascaria(sp?) restaurant) Flying Fishbone restaurant (do this on the day you rent a jeep to explore - it's far drive and/or an expensive cab ride... but definitely worth it!  best food on the island) Pirate's Nest is…
  • believe it or not, it's actually quite old!  we walked into our reception almost 3 years ago to that song.  we had heard jason sing it at a concert the year prior and had really liked it so we used it for our wedding! but yes, i LOVE it.  it's by f…
