Of course you may join!  Welcome.

 

We started out as a Due Date Club (DDC) on here and then started this thread in Life With A Babe to try and keep connected somewhat.  I think it's just not as active because we are all busy keeping track of our mobile babies.  :)  Not as easy to type and nurse when the baby wants to type too!

Welcome Tynka!

 

Yeah, DS popped a key off my keyboard and likes the computer, so I have trouble. :lol 

 

DS is cruising...sigh. Too mobile! 5th tooth popped through, with #6 on the way. He's dropped a couple of Nursing sessions during the day-down to 4 or 5 and then 1-2 at night. Before he was still at like 12 in a 24 hour period.

Elsa is cruising, too.  Sigh.  I swear she just started pulling up a few weeks ago.  I lose track so easily.

 

She's been a total crab lately, and I'm not sure why.  She doesn't want to sleep anymore, even at night, when she's always been easy.  It's been torture to get her down, and even once she's down she wakes up more, and angrier, than usual.  I hope it's just a tooth, but maybe she's getting ready to walk.  I hope not!

 

We got her the cutest Christmas dress - I can't wait to do her picture for our cards this year!

I know exactly what you mean. W would rather cruise than crawl.  His favorite thing to do lately is pull himself up in the bathtub, hold my hands, stand for a few seconds and then sit back down.  We do that over and over about 10 or so times.  He cracks me up!

 

And yes, W gets snotty when he's teething.  Eventhough the bottom two have popped through, he must be getting more.  He's been really snotty lately and a bit crabby at times.

I hope it wasn't only a few weeks ago.  DD just started pulling up in the past week and I don't want her on the move just yet!  Also because DS is prone to pushing her...a fall from a stand will hurt a bit more than a fall from a sit.

 

Try putting her to bed earlier,  DD was so messed up here with the time change.  I thought it would be easy for her to adjust, but it really hasn't been.  She still wants to zonk out by 6pm most evenings.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!

 

DD is 9 months tomorrow and she is so mobile now.  We got a real tree this year and I'm hoping she doesn't topple it on top of herself.  She's quick and quite daring, she's so much more adventurous than her brother was.  She is cruising around and getting the hang of standing on her own.  I know she will be trying to take steps soon because she has no fear at all.  It's funny because she is always trying to do what her big brother does - and he's on the floor crawling to copy her. :)

I'm a bit worried about the tree too - we don't get ours until close to Christmas but that's coming up soon! I feel like I spend my days at the moment preventing DS from killing himself - more or less literally. DD wasn't like this either - she was much more cautious about things. Have I mentioned I really need to babyproof? We put up the top-of-stairs baby gate today - that's a relief for me.

Hi Everyone!  I have missed you all so much and I am not exaggerating!   Life has been so hectic and just unsettled since we moved to NYC.  We are now making the move from the UWS to Brooklyn.  Our apt now has literally had construction going on every day except sundays since we moved here the first of October.  Needless to say, not much sleep for the baby or mama.  I hate moving again but we are moving to a very mom/baby/family friendly place so I am super excited about that.  Sleep has been insane.  More like no sleep.  Malachi has been waking up every 30-45 min or less since 4.5 months.  It was honestly getting to the place where I felt a little crazy and like a bad mom because I couldn't figure out anything to help him sleep!  I tried everything!  Then, this past week, he just sttn, like he was a pro and this is what he does. I woke up several times to check on him and it is still weirding me out.  I love it though.  It was another lesson in the fact that kids will develop all on their own time table in their own way.  He just wasn't ready before now and who knows what next week will be like.  Right now, I am just enjoying solid blocks of sleep.  It really gave me a mental and emotional break that I needed.  

Malachi is so fun!  He is cruising around everywhere and standing on his own for brief amounts of time.  He is so laid back that he will try something for a bit but if it isn't working, no big deal he will try again tomorrow lol.  He is really developing his language too.  Lots of sounds strung together sounding like a conversation.  I love it.  He does this the most when he is sitting looking at a book or "talking" to a stuffed animal.  I think it is so cute!  He definitely gets the concept of bye bye and gets sad when daddy leaves for work.  He is down tearing up the house soon after though so it is not a big deal.  Anyone else have a house that constantly looks like a toy bomb went off?  Malachi crawls around so fast and pulls apart or flings everything everywhere!  It is cute but very messy.

Hope everyone is doing well and we have been pretty quiet, would love to hear about everyone else's babes and see pics!
