Winter has started talking. He says all his vowel sounds and several consonants, and he loves to repeat after us.
Mamas, when do you switch from mostly front carries to back carries? I wear Winter 5-6 hours per day (he still only sleeps on me during the day), and he's starting to strain my back and shoulders, but he's so accessible up front, I'm not too keen to switch to the back. Oh, also, when do you switch from foggy legs in to legs out?
13lbs! We had our two month (which was really 10 weeks) visit on thursday, and Ten was 11lb even. She's pretty skinny looking through the body, ut has a perfectly oval face with just these cheeks. She's pretty long too, so we're running into problems with her outgrowing clothing too. She is still wearing all her newborn pants, but her torso is so long that her sleepers and onesies, she's been in 3-6m since about 9 weeks. It's crazy because we have a TON of clothing that we've gotten as hand me downs, but since she's growing through things so fast, I figure we'll hit her 12 month clothing (which is where the amount tapers off) by the end of summer.
Ten is the same with talking too. Her language has exploded and you can see her actively working to figure out how to make these sounds. It's so cute!
We've got her only in the front right now, by default because I don't have a carrier she can be on my back. But I'm looking for a mei tai so that I can can wear her on my back. I'm having trouble right now getting stuff done around the house with her on my front.
We stopped froggying her legs around... I think it was 7 or 8 weeks. She was probably ready for it earlier, as she kept trying to stand up in the wrap. She's much happier now.

We're the opposite. For these small sizes, I keep having to go down and pare down our stash of clothing to only the ones I really love. I pulled out her 306m stuff, and realized I had 22 onesies. I mean seriously! But the problem is that they're all so cute so I can't bear to part with any of them. I never would have bought this many, but since they were all given to us, it was hard to turn down, and now that I have them, I don't want to part!

First we started walking home and Roland showed me this neat coin he found on the playground. I told him we had to hand it in at the office and he really didn't want to. So we went back to school and the secretary taped it to a piece of paper with his name on it and if it's still there in two weeks he can have it back. Then we started walking home again and he told me he had to read a whole book tonight and do five book reports and he wasn't allowed to get the book so he couldn't even read it! He didn't want to go back and talk to his teacher, so I had to say he wasn't getting on his computer this week if we didn't, because he won't be doing his homework according to what he just said (he goes on the computer after he finishes homework each day) So back we went again, and he had ONE book report due, a math problem that hew as half-finished already, some multiplication sheets, and a completed goals sheet for me to sign. Some of that was because he missed half of last week because he was sick. After that we finally came home. He's not thrilled with me, but he'll be caught up by Friday and we'll go to the candy store for a treat. Phew!
Maybe she'll start to take more interest in her toys now... I've been putting an empty paper towel roll over her arm when she's in her highchair, which keeps her pretty entertained. When she moves and it goes past wherever she's looking, she turns her head like "What was that?!"
Ugh :( That does not sound like a fun afternoon!
And yes on the toys! DH gave her a paintbrush the other day, and she was having so much fun just holding it. She's also decided she loves her peek squeak monkey and will sit for up to 20 minutes talking to him. LOVE!
