***April 2007 Mamas - It's January 2008!!!*** - Page 12

post #221 of 712
Not much going on around here either. Ashton went for his very first WBV. All was well. No crap from the doc about delaying vax. So, Ashton weighs nearly 20lbs and 28-1/2" tall and he is doing just fine (which I knew already )

All the baby pics are adorable. I still need to post a new one of Ashton

His presonality:

He is pretty laid back and happy, loves his big brother and looks up to him. He likes to taste everything in sight. He is a definetely mischievious and explorative but at the same time he is careful. He doesn't like it when he can't see the love of his life (me he is a socializer and loves to talk. He is easy to make laugh.

Montana mama - I often wonder who came up with the saying sleeps like a baby too.

montanamama he is so BEAUTIFUL!!!! i love that bald little head!!!


Caroline let me see i am not really good at describing. lol
Caroline is shy and determined, When she wants something she will let you know it! she loves getting into this box of paper under my desk! or crawling down the hall to eat carpet fuzz! she is shy tho, even has to warm up to grandma when she comes, and prefers mommy to all my friends, tho she totally loves daddy already something my others didn't do till over a year old,
she HATES and i MEAN HATES diaper changes! she graps her self and its gotta HURT! she screams bloody murder! its funny cause she used to LOVE them like she would only smile and talk when naked on the changing table soooo long ago when she was like 2 months old lol, i think she knows how cute she is ( that picture of her posing.... i can't believe she posed lol) she is also watchful she will sit with me when we are out or when someone is over, and just watch them for a long while before she decides if she is ok with the place/person!

Well, she'd scream, then crawl around, then yell and bang her mouth on something, then get a sad cry face, then scream, etc. It went on for about two hours. Poor baby, it is definitely her teeth. I can see how the one coming in is still kind of in the gum, trying to poke through, owwee.

Same thing tonight, yelling and banging her mouth on me, but at least she went down at a decent time. It helps that she didn't nap well today .

Scarlet is funny, determined, easily amused and smiles often. A very happy baby, content to play quietly with whatever she can get her hands and mouth on. She gets excited about the bathtub (where she was born!), and LOVES to play with brother. She is the squirmiest babe for diaper and clothes changes. She makes the best noises, like she's just having a great time - or not so great time - it's all sweet and funny. It all makes up for the heck she gave me when I was pregnant.

Cute pictures, E, even hubby!

Hannah is just sooooo active right now!! SHe is all over the place! She has two, going on three teeth, and is growing like a weed!! I am a bit worried, though...she hasn't gained any weight since her 6 month appointment, and they're calling trying to get me to schedule a WBV. I'm afraid that the doc will comment on her weight, and things will spiral from there. She's started cruising and crawling all over, so I'm sure that's the thing, but I'm constantly trying to get her to eat to make up for the lack of weight gain!!

this is totally normal!! all 4 of my babies have done this, Caroline was 16+ lbs at 4 months then at 6 months( almost 7 months) she was only 17lbs 14 ozs, and now at 8 months i would be shocked if she is over 18 lbs, breast fed babies usually pack on the weight the first half of the year then slim out as they get active. ( not all of them mydd1 did less slimming then dd2) over all they are all made differnt and drs should know this so i wouldn't worry!! don't try to get her to gain, i doubt it would work anyway!

can't post much. zenon has pneumonia and i'm an anxious wreck (so little sleep and a super sick family for a week!!!) aaaah! i'm just hoping he seems a little better today (and nurses soon b/c he hasn't nursed in a while)...otherwise we are back to the dr and then who knows what. at least my dr is pretty cool. he said he is very conservative about giving out antibiotics and quickly said to start probiotics too.
anyway--adam and kaylo are super sick again too with sinus/chest stuff. i'm just praying theirs clears up on it's own.

oh brother. i'm just worn out. and i really feel like a failure--i try so hard to prevent secondary infections and my little 9 mo has pneumonia!!

prayers for you guys

I cannot keep up with this thread! G made the sign for "milk" yesterday....SO EXCITING. Ugh, but between her top 2 teeth coming in and trying to crawl, getting her to sleep is a chore, esp. naps. Once she's asleep, she's usually ok. Def not sleeping through the night, but she goes right back to sleep after she wakes to nurse, so it's all good.

We just got back from Desmond's well baby appointment, he is now 22 pounds 3 ounces and 29 inches tall. He also got a shot, poor baby. He got his DTaP, we are now vaccinated through the 4 month age recommendation, at least of the 3 vaccines we are doing so far.

In other news DH was able to sooth him back to sleep last night at 2am and he slept till 5:30, yay! Except my poor boobs were in pain. He then went back to sleep till 8am when he decided to get up for the day. DH took him downstairs so I had 2 hours of sleeping all by myself (so nice).

I hope Zenon gets better quickly KRis!
post #238 of 712
kris-that sounds a bit like our New Years/Anniversary! Is there anyone that could relieve you so you could catch some zzzzz's? So important, you stay healthy. I had the flu in the beginning of Dec. No one else caught it. Then Andy got a cold/croup, Noah was teething like a little mad-man and Rob got the flu-all on our anniversary at Chico Hot Springs. Luckily my parents were there so I could go back to bed for a bit. Anyway, I HOPE HOPE HOPE you don't get it and everyone heals quickly.

Queen-FUN idea for everyone to post about their babes!

Abby is very friendly and active. She loves to explore, and is very observant. She will watch and look before reaching for something. She loves to laugh and does often. She loves to spend time with Mom and Dad (and sister) - she lights up whenever we come into the room

Evangeline's favourite noise is gasping while holding her breath. She does it ALL the time, in various pitches. Weirdo!
