Thread Starter 
My Katherine is a week old now and has the cutest little cry, she sounds like a little seagull when she's hungry. She's sleeping well which I know won't last

Next?

3w tomorrow (how did that happen?!) he's changed so much already!!!

He's sleeping less and less, with more and more alert looking around. He can sometimes find the boob himself and latch back on if it's in the vicinity He squeaks like a little mouse in his sleep, and sometimes grunts like a baby lamb! He scratches his face and puts sucks on his fist when he's hungry. Since Monday he's been sorta gassy and fussy a little more I am looking into eliminating cow's milk from my diet. Gotta find other sources of calcium though. He's a total little piggy and is gaining weight SO FAST

I'm just trying to make the most of every moment with him - he's changing SO FAST!

My "March" baby (so much for EDD's ) is TWO MONTHS OLD!!!!
We are taking her FIRST camping trip this weekend, leaving today! :

Still having milk transfer issues while nursing, the up side is, she DOES nurse, and thanks to domperidone, I have enough milk when I pump to feed her without formula supplement!

She finally grew out of her preemie clothes and is now a whopping 7 lbs.
She's still smaller than my other two when they were born... At least she's healthy and growing!

nak i am so in love with this little girl! she is 3 weeks old now. we were a little worried that she wasn't gaining weight because between 1 and 2 weeks she didn't gain any. but between 2 and 3 weeks she gained over a pound from 7-4 to 8-8!! so now we are not worried any more.

she is still very sleepy but has more awake times. even while awake she is very mellow. i am feeling very blessed. she has been a little gassy. i am off dairy and trying to watch out for the other gassy foods.

we went for our first walk today. she slept snuggled in the sling and all zipped up in dh's coat. i had to carry ds on my shoulders and her in the sling for a while. i guess i am feeling pretty good these days!

oh, and her baby noises sound like a cat. ds calls her squeaky. i am just trying to take it all in..............before all this disappears.

V is 1 month old today. Man the time goes by wayy too fast. We are doing well. For the most part she is an easy going baby. SHe started cooing and grinning at me this week although it's only one or 2 times a day. Last night she shocked me by going 4 hours. Now if only my son had been sleeping. lol Currently she is snuggled in my wrap sleeping on my chest.

Meredith weighed in at 9lbs 1.5 ozs on Wed and will get weighed again today. She's a chubby wee lass that's for sure! (she's all of 5 days old) She's a great nurser, a great sleeper and is really good at blowing out her diapers!

We're really looking forward to her cord falling off. It smells like DEATH! icky! (it's not infected, just icky smelling!) it's looking like it's going to go sooner rather than later though so that's good.

All is well here really. I'm absolutely exhausted I think just from the blood loss because I"m getting as much sleep as I was before baby was born I think. It's fun to have a newborn around again. It's fun to watch our 3 yr old starting to embrace being a big sister too. She decided to wear her shirt that says 'Big Sister Annie' today after vehemently refusing to even look at before today. All good signs we think for a lifelong friendship (with a few thrown toys in there for good mix!)

Sonny will be five weeks Monday! He's amazing. He stays awake for longer stretches now. Big sister LOVES when he's awake! she's totally in love with her little brother. she talks to him, snuggles, kisses, hugs & helps bathe him! I'm so happy (and relieved) she's smitten.

Sonny is very easy going. The only time he gets really upset is when he's in the car seat. I don't blame him....
I love this newborn stage, but I can't wait for the smiles & giggles!!

Katie is doing great! She's 3wks 3 days today. She's filled out a lot in the past week. Her little face has gotten so round.

She's a great nurser. I'm pretty sure she spends the majority of her time attached to my boob.:

We've been out a few times and discovered that she loves the car and the stretchy wrap. Both put her right to sleep.

My MIL e-mailed me a pic of my DH when he was a baby and it's unreal how much he and Katie look alike.Look!

She's also a really a great sleeper too. Thank God for co-sleeping. She sleeps usually 3 and a half to 4 hours at a stretch and there is very little crying because I wake up at the same time she does.

I'm loving getting to know our babe. I do occasionally feel a little guilty because I think Katie is an easy baby. None of the horror stories about screaming babies or sleepless nights seem to be coming true.

I'm totally in love with Rory. She's an awesome baby. She's 2 weeks and 4 days old and still sleeps great though she's having longer wake periods. She hardly ever cries (she's only had 2 actual crying jags). She's just great and she makes the cutest faces and noises. I love her!

Natalia is 4 weeks old today and had a Dr. appt, where she weighed in at 11 lbs, 1 oz and was 22 inches long. That's 2 lb up from birth and a 2" length increase. No wonder all she does is eat and sleep!

She still sleeps loads. She tends to cry when she's awake after a short period of relaxed state. I took her to the Dr. to see about a prescription for reflux, as having gone through it twice already with DD1 and DD2, I want to get DD3 as comfortable as possible as soon as possible,

Zoë is 3 weeks today. I had her weighed yestarday and she was about 9lbs 8oz (7lb 13 at birth). She loves the boob and has a gazillion saturated diapers to show for it. The bummer part is that she has thrush and naturally, I do too. We are on gentian violet and diflucan. Zoë's big sisters love her like crazy. Abby, my 2 yo loves to cuddle with her and help her nurse. Apparently Abby thinks that proper hand placement is required. Tonight at CVS, Abby grabbed a pack of flashcards and dropped them in the card and announced, "ZoZo want"

It's so cool to hear about all your babies on the outside!

Savitri just turned 2 months (one of the OLDER babies - so odd!) and is 10 lbs, 6oz. She loves to eat and is making up for all that NICU time by nursing often and expressing discontent the exact second you put her down. Between the sling, moby, and thanks to her ThaTha (grandfather) holding her, that doesn't happen very often. We're seeing glimpses of a smile - just cant' wait for that "social smile" and the cool interactive months ahead. Arjuna is adjusting slowly, but would really prefer to put her back where she came from, (uh, NO, sorry). I'm trying to give him as much "big baby" time as he needs (he's just not a big boy yet, really, and I'm trying to keep that in mind). He came and cuddled into me a good 20 minutes after his nap yesterday (a VERY long time in his world to be still). Aaaaaaah, baby cuddles. This is why you do it, despite no sleep and five million diapers.
