Most of the babes will be 9 months this month! Time does fly.

Perfect now I can follow a thread from the begining and not have to spend days catching up. DD is doing great with the walking, but today is getting a runny nose so we'll se how it goes, she's understandably clingy but it's kinda nice since she'd always on the go lately and we get some cuddle time, now. I swear even currling up in bed to fall asleep lately is a kicking, pinching, sing her self to sleep kinda nights lol. But hey at least she's sleeping alot better once she's out.

Yay I can be here from the beginning too! No more lurking I can keep up this time. My DS was born at the end of July so he just turned 8 months. We haven't started on solids yet but he doesn't seem to mind. No steps by himself yet but boy can he boogie holding my hands. He is definitely sleeping longer though.

DD is getting brave and trying to let go. I've caught her almost standing with out climbing up anything too, she's getting there.

Hey girls! Nice to find you. I used to post regularly on another Mommy board but I like MDC better. :P

My C was born on July 10 and she's growing up too fast. It sounds like she's on par with most of your babies: Standing and walking with assistance; not crawling yet, but loves to cruise. (She can't pull up by herself yet, though. I blame it on the fact that Mommy hovers over her all the time. I can't help it-- she won't let me leave her side! Talk about spoiled-- umm, attached. LOL) She can say a few words but mostly loves to imitate sounds and babble constantly. She is very vocal and social, which is funny to me because DH and I are introverts!

She has been exculsively breastfed, except a little bit of supplemental formula in the hospital for jaundice (and a dumb nurse who gave a bottle against my wishes! ) We are playing around with solids once a day, but she doesn't eat much. We do organic veggie puree. YUM!

We are delaying vaxes until at least age two, and then selectively. I worry about autoimmune and neurological effects. She did have her first round of DTAP.

I can't wait to get to know you all and your babies!

Katie-bird is eating everything and anything in sight, but especially loves her berries, pieces of chicken, and cheese. All kinds of cheese! We had Jarlsburg (sp?) today! Yum!

She always eats a solids breakfast (which could be anything from yogurt to boston baked lentils to my oatmeal), and about 5 out of 7 nights she'll have a solids supper, too. Whatever we're eating if it's ok for her - so, anything except shell fish or hard raw veggies -one benefit of baby-led solids and giving her "real" food is that it's making us eat a bit more healthfully, since we let her grab off our plates. Still gets her 10-12oz of breastmilk each day, and then the rest in formula.

Stats: 27+ inches, just over 16lbs, 7 1/2 teeth (8th broke through a few days ago), full head of hair. Still fits into 3-6mos clothes, but can generally wear 6-9 months, admittedly baggy.

What's she doing? For over a month the whole cruising, pulling up, etc. Been crawling for almost 2 months now...she's starting to stand alone momentarily...maybe a couple of seconds. And she LOVES to walk around with us holding her hands. Since I spend so much time outside with her at work, we went and bought a TEENY tiny little pair of sandals for her for when she's on the asphalt trying to walk around. I don't want to put her in shoes at all, but, for the driveway, with summer coming, it's needed.

Oh, and her new thing is feeding other people. Loves to feed me, Da-da, even Puppy. But she teases! She'll put the food in your mouth, and then pull it out and laugh! A couple of days ago, I watched her and the dog sitting on the floor. Katie had the dog's rawhide, and she'd put it in Puppy's mouth, let her chew it, then take it out, put it in HER mouth (I know, I know, but a dog's mouth is cleaner than a human's, right?), chew on it, then put it back in Puppy's mouth. Repeat until Puppy finally walked away after Katie gave her the rawhide.

Still loves bathtime, petting puppy, her windchimes, and dances to her learning table. Cute as all get out.

Hey there mamas!

We are crawling quickly here, almost pulling up, almost clapping, loving life, and no words yet!

Happy to see you all here!

uh....forgot what I was going to say....

mdc was "too busy" when I first went to reply.

Amara stands now easily by herself! Sometimes I go to put her on the floor and she "plunks" firmly on her feet and I can just leave her like that! *eyespoppingsmilie* 18 seconds is her latest record. She's outta control.

*brag session complete*

Happy April, everyone! I will be 35 this month!

Hi!!! We went up to Vancouver to hang out the set of a movie that is going to have one of my songs in it. It was really fun. We also went to the aquarium and to a party at a curling club! We learned how to curl and got to play in a tournament with the cast and crew members from the movie! I only fell on the ice twice!

Panda just had her first poop in 5 days and it was sticky and stinky!!! She has been eating Barbara's Oat Os, plums, grapes, pears, avocado, bananas. No crawling yet but she tries to climb up stuff and falls on her face a lot.

She is really funny. She is saying "MAMA" for me now. Not just "mumumumu" when she wants milk. And she says "dada" and "pop" and we were watching the dog show on teevee in our hotel the other night and she was really excited and saying "doggy, doggy, doggy!" She hasn't said it since though.

This weekend we were in Portland and she kept trying to say "Jake". That is who we were staying with. It was really cute.

She says hi too.

I have been sick all day. :Puke And I have a show tonight. Ugh.

We should just hang a sign at the club that says "APRIL FOOL" and go home and go to bed

AHHHHHHHHHHH, OMG what a typo in the sense of words in my brain not typing right! Some mamas I haven't seen in a couple months, and I am happy they joined in, BUT I am truly happy to see everyone.

Ok, I am stopping now.....FOOT IN MOUTH!

Oh I hope you feel better and your show goes well.

I love all of Panda's words, no words here....waiting patiently!

Wow, can't believe I'm actually catching this thread at the beginning, instead of just lurking, as usual!
Within the space of a week a couple of weeks ago, both boys started sitting up, crawling, getting two teeth, saying "mama" and pulling up!:
It's a madhouse here now! They're both starting to say "dada," too, but only under coercion/prompting by good ol' dada. He also swears that Eli crawled over to Hannah the other day and actually said her name. I'm not so sure, since he hasn't repeated it. Their favorite trick is to crawl over to each other, then try to pull up using the other's back for support. Usually ends in a major screamfest for the pull-ee and shrieks of enjoyment of the 'conquest' (Mt. Eli & Mt. Sam?) from the pull-er.
As for food, they are chowhounds, loving bananas, pears, avocados, sweet potatoes, squash, and oatmeal w/applesauce. Am dying to try Yo-baby this week, since my daughter used to love that stuff.
I think they are around 19-20 lbs, and not so sure about height. They won't stay in one spot long enough for me to measure!

Wow everybody. I think right now is the funest time. Kiana has figured out waving and she uses it at the right time too, for hello and goodbye. The other day she wasn't happy in her highchair I took her out and she started waving bye at the high chair, lol. She is also eating a variety of cereals, purees, and tons of finger food, not to mention everything we eat in some small form. She's going on adventure now exploreing every room of the house every chance she gets. And she's quick to so it's like hide and seek but she doesn't know I'm supposed to find her. Anyways everybody is taking leaps and bounds and it's so exciting.

Hi y'all! We're back from New Mexico and so glad to be home!
post #18 of 290
:hi

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack! We're pretty much moved in and I am ready to join my life again. Yes, this is my life here.

A is getting so big! She turned 9 mo. on the 23rd and is EVERYWHERE! She crawls all over the place and loves to eat paper...still. She doesn't eat much, loves peas and carrots...well, anything that she can feed herself. She is a nut! She is still signing milk (sometimes) and Dad (all the time) and she's done more once. If she's anything like her brother she'll have a real sign explosion in the next few months. Still no teeth and that is fine with me!!!

I'm exhausted, I hate moving. Have I ever told you all that?? I don't like that we're renting this house because I really don't want to move again. Oh well, I'll enjoy it while I can. It seems to be a nice neighborhood and we have a fantastic yard! So now when A is sleeping, hopefully S can be outside playing and I can come catch up with all of you!

But...for now, I need to go put A to bed and unload and load the dishwasher, iron dh's pants (he starts his new job tomorrow!!) and find my workout pants in a box. Yeah, I'm SO sick of being fat, time for that to change.

Kim It's so nice to see you again. Good luck to your dh for tomorrow(this morning) at work.
