Heron has been a side-sleeper since day one, and he occasionally rolls himself onto his stomach in the middle of the night. Nothing I can do to stop him, and my ped said to let him go. He said something like, "We know that sleep positioning reduces the risk of SIDS, but we have no idea why, so don't try to be the sleep police."  
Pre-baby stats: 5'10", 135lb Last pregnancy weight: 186 3wks PP: 150   I cannot say enough good things about the C25K program.

The contractions were about five minutes apart, but I...

Tavian looks so much like you!!   Also loving how beautiful our babies are but also how many goofy faces they make. What a bunch of characters.
  2 week birthday tomorrow!
