What a pretty good looking family! I'm guessing they're your parents, and you have some neices and nephews there? But mostly your sisters and brothers?

what!!?!! crawling!!

Noah is still just a blob. A BIG 20 # blob. Are bigger babies just slower? hmmmm....

He also has a cold and nights have been LLLOOOONNNNGGGG!!! Yuck! I am tired. DS1 is behaving better though, and to be honest that makes all the difference!

We close on our house on 10/22. DH has a 3 day break and we move in. Then, of course, I have to find a job. To support the mortgage. bleh!

sooo
how many post each day to reach 500?
sorry to tired to do the math. Maybe one of you mamas that has a baby that sleeps all night....I can't even imagine what that would be like. For me,

having baby=exhausted!

That was how it was w ds1, he finally slept thru for the 1st time at 2 years old!@!

Dang page 2 already! I am going to be behind on this month as well... wish I could keep up better with you wonderful mamas! But Sophie has decided to be a crap napper and crap sleeper and I am trying to read a book and progress to a nap when she naps instead of being online during naps

Seriously, she wants to be ON the boob all night long, so I'm awake every hour at least, trying to not fall asleep on top of her... SIGH. She is doing some longer naps, as long as I am right there with boob in her mouth... And I can't do that w/o using one hand and being awake pretty much. I would really like two straight hours of sleep at this point. She wasn't always this bad so I'm just saying it'll pass, it'll change, wasn't it nice she gave me a break for a month or two there between newborn sleep/lessnes and this?

She also has a cold now. Really stuffed and runny nose, poor thing.

She's sooo close to sitting up on her own-- she's done it for little stretches so I wonder if all of a sudden she'll just be able to do it for long times or if it'll still be gradual as she figures out how to reach for toys w/o falling and that she needs to stop trying to stand up while sitting

Ughhhhh Padres are STILL playing and DD's back up awake; at least DH is walking her now. This is my ONE stretch of not having to be on, like all night and all day, darnit! But I thought she was out and Pad's would be done and we'd actually have mommy and daddy time and watch TV or something SIGH!!!!!!! Just treading water here....

I thought the exact same thing when I saw the pic!

I can't believe we are on the second page already!! It is only the first (okay -- technically the second since it's after midnight...)

kewpie-o: I just love Scout's cheeks!! They just look so yummy and kissable!

I finally finished the website I made for Micah! Micah Alexander It about drove me bonkers : trying to get everything done for it (and a couple of pages are still "under construction"), and it doesn't have this past week's pictures -- BUT at least it is up and running!!

His snoozing has been pretty good lately, but his not yet emerged tooth is driving both of us crazy. He is okay if nothing else is wrong, but as soon as he is tired, hungry, lonely, bored, etc. -- watch out! He has also started this screeching cry that sound as if he is in pain which I guess he is since he is teething... He is also attempting to crawl but mostly just managing a scoot (mostly backwards), but between scooting and rolling he can get just about anywhere. Last weekend I did see him take a "crawling step" with one knee, but then face planted into the bed....I expect the real deal any day now.

BTW -- I am 27 and Micah is my first son (left over from last month)...

i can't believe some of your babes are crawling/sitting up!!! Crazy!

Yes. it is 4:21 am. For some reason, every couple of nights, Gianna feels the need to throw a par-tay at around 3 am-ish for an hour or so. I guess at least she' not crying...she just happily rebuffs any and all attempts to get her to sleep.

...she's mellowing out a little bit so I think I might give it the old college try again....hope everyone else is sleeping peacefully!

Logan only took short naps all day today. He wasn't as cranky as I thought he would be after having such little sleep - but I thought he needed a nap - so after dinner at around 7PM we went in and laid down in a dark room and nursed. We slept for 2.5 hours with him waking to nurse a couple times! It was good for both of us!

He's trying to get mobile but is mostly still just frustrated that he can't quite move. He's been hopping backward on the bed in back bends and squirming forward on his belly a little. I've seen some motions to get his legs up but he isn't quite there yet. I'm not ready for him to be mobile We need to get our mattress on the floor and do some baby proofing. Plus, I'm having a problem dealing with our cats at the moment - I just don't want them around the baby. They suddenly seem 'dirty' to me. Anyone else have cats and feel this way after having a baby? We've had cats for nearly 14 years. Is it my mama claws coming out?

my brothers are gigantic! Even my sister is! Johnny's cousin is only 21 days younger and growing super fast so they are kind of like twins..the funny thing is that their daddys ARE twins!

Yeah, I was really tired yesterday and could tell the baby was too so I laid down and nursed him and then slept for a few hours - my phone rang a few times and I ignored the calls and went right back to sleep.

I'm not sure about the cats - maybe it would be differant if they lived in our house; but my mom has several and they don't seem dirty to me (probably are though!) I let DS pet them, and even pet their rabbit - though I do wash his hands after the rabbit. Johnny just adores animals though, we have a lake with ducks accross the street from us and he stared at them for hours last time we were over there. I also let Johnny swing on the park swing (he loves his little swing in the house on the highest setting now so I thought he might like the one in the park).

Which reminds me those pics of Caroline getting out of her swing were sot cute, Johnny does the same thing in anything..I can't just plop him into a seat while I pee anymore I have to actually buckle him

Hm...so it is totally 5:45am (got up to help DH get out of the door) sp maybe I should go back to bed for an hour before Johnny gets up wanting to play. Does anyone elses kiddos (who cosleep) wake you up in the morning? Johnny just talks louder and louder and grabs my face

yep and here we are. DD is up bright and early by 7 am (7:30 if I am lucky) no matter how much sleep she got the night before. Never ceases to amaze me.

Ollie's working on his top two teeth now - they are just about breaking through. He already has two on the bottom. So his sleeping is not great, and he bit me twice yesterday.

He's sitting up by himself, but nowhere near crawling. I weighed him on our bathroom scale yesterday - 21 lbs!

I'm 34 with two kids and my toddler also drives me crazy (from last month's thread).

Evan is about 21 lbs., and I'm thinking the same thing. DD wasn't 21 lbs. even at 12 mos., and she was quicker at everything. But, even though I'm a milestone junkie, Evan is #3, and I'm able to both say and believe that babies develop at their own pace and I'm enjoying the immobile stage for as long as it lasts.
