---what's going on here?! our little ones aren't little zenon doesn't even try to sit up but he's somehow scooting around the floor (rolling and kicking, i guess)

montanamom-maybe bigger babes are slower...zenon is close to 20# too, i think. i'll find out for sure soon...

debstmom-sleep routine hasn't changed much here...he nurses a couple times a night.

ultserj--wow, yours walked early!! 8/9/10 months!?

my sister just dropped out of a grad math program that she was in...so she drove out here and is staying for a while (doesn't have to be anywhere until dec) so, i actually haven't been on the computer as much as usual. it's been so nice to have an extra set of hands!

i had a day-long farmers market/craft fair last weekend and zenon was a happy lil guy (like normal)...but he also discovered how far he could move rolling! i'd put him down on a blanket and when i'd turn around again, he had rolled 5 or 6 times and was 4 feet away from the blanket playing with leaves in the grass! (and he doesn't put them in his mouth!!! the first thing he's ever grabbed that didn't end up in the mouth ) he'd do it over and over (roll away)...it was really cute.

i'm going to try hard and keep up with this thread

Up all night-again!
Boy is the house a mess. Poor Noah has that sick, whiny raspy cry.

He sure lights up when Dada comes in, it is so precious.

I just gave away a bunch of longies, booties, baby clothes, etc... on DS. I LOVE that website. I have been shut out of MDC TP-bc I posted too many ISOs before Noah was born. We live in rural MT, where else am I gonna find this kind of stuff? I can't believe I would be shut out-I have over 700 posts! Just irks me.

Have a sunny day! Enjoy the fall colors!

Yeah, romi stands holding on to stuff all the time. She still isn't crawling though, just worming her way around!! But she is fat and active, which kinda makes the theory of skinny babies = faster fall to pieces. But I think she's not gaining weight like she used to, I sense she's thinner than before.

On a sad note, the girl nurses so fast that she doesn't have time to fall asleep at the boob anymore. Which sucks cause we had naps down and now it's a battle. Bah.

Our babies are definitely not newborns anymore!! All the pictures are so cute and sweet! I love all the april babies I miss our DDC as well. I wish we could meet up somewhere to chat by subjects, not all in one thread. It gets confusing.

That's us too...the only way he nurses long enough to fal asleep is if I nurse him laying down..

Long time no see...

I have totally fallen off the face of the planet, and have decided I need some more "mom" time on here!

My daughter was due in April but was born May 8 - I think I was in the last four of the April DDC!

The transition to two kiddos has been hard for me. I'm a teacher part-time, and school starting was SO hard! I hadn't been since April vacation, so a four and a half month break has made it a tough transition mentally. Even worse for me now is that I REALLY don't want to be here anymore. If we could afford it, I'd be a SAHM in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, we barely make it with me part-time because of the lack of pay from having two kids in two years. If we didn't have the credit card bills that were run up while I wasn't getting paid, then I could afford to stay home. It sucks. :

Anyway, on a happy note, I am loving being a mom to two girls. They are so much fun. My "little" Catherine was 10 lbs 15 oz and 21" when she was born a day shy of 42w. At her 4 month checkup she was 15 lbs 10oz and 26 1/4". If I compare her to her older sister, she is the same length, but weighs a pound less. Funny, because they're so opposite in appearance, too.

Catherine will be 5 months next week, and she's rolling over both ways and can sit unsupported for short periods of time before keeling over.
What's really funny is that she 'walks' - I thought they lost their stepping reflex way before now, but if you hold her by her hands she can totally walk, no problem. She's been standing on my lap since she was born, so who knows?

Here's my two sweeties:

I may be crazy, but I'm already planning for #3. We won't be ttc for at least a couple years, but since I want to go for a vba2c I need to research ahead of time. I happily found a midwife who will take me as a homebirth client, so at least I know there's someone out there for me - if I can convince DH to go alont with it!

Ok, enough rambling. I just wanted to check in and need to get on here more. The ladies left from the DDC were all that got me through those last couple weeks... I look forward to being on here more with you ladies.

Hey mamas,
I will try and make this my last bummer post...
So I have been trying to find some help for the ppd and in doing so ended up with CPS at the door yesterday. Apparently they were just there for support, but they still looked through everything and now they are keeping tabs on me. I have an appt. with some doc today so we'll see how that goes, but basically I'm going home. I just booked my flights today, so we leave on Sunday. Dp is a little ticked I think, but is trying to be understanding.
I just want to feel like me again! I will be going to my family doc when I get back east and I will feel much safer about that since he knows me and won't over (or under)react.
*sigh* I can't wait to be with my family!

btw Arlo is doing great...he is so easy going! A real love of a baby

So, is anyone doing halloween costumes for their little ones? I'm thinking about making Cece a chicken costume, and maybe having Ollie be an egg (although I'm not sure how to make that...) Any other ideas?

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry! You're in my prayers, but I do wish there was something more concrete I could do to help.

I gave Daniel a mesh feeder with a frozen breastmilk cube in it (a boob cube! ) and he's in seventh heaven. It's hilarious.
post #59 of 810
finn'smama- I am realy sorry to hear that!

I think I will dress litle Johnny as a dino or a pumpkin - I have 2 pumpkin costumes and one dino costume that came in give away bags...I just cannot decide though!

annettemarie- I may have to try the boob cube now that I can actually pump more in a week than DS consumes (though honestly I have slacked off pumping since I quit working).
