I measured it today. It's 5 inches off the floor which is perfect for us. I love our platform bed. When we bought it almost 2 years ago we had cosleeping in mind. We had originally planned on building one but we got this one at such a discount we decided to buy instead. There are lots of great plans online. Tell your DH they are really easy to build. Ours is slatted.

Olivine sitting up at 4 months

This was taken almost a week ago, she gets better at it everyday. Of course she can't get herself into a sitting position, but she can hold it!

Wow! Sitting up. Jules falls over every time. But during tummy time, he gets all over the floor.

So I saw your other youtube videos, and my dh and I couldn't stop taughing at the video of your son learning the planets.

Revenge of the tummy bug. So far ds and dd2 are immune, but DH, dd1, and I are....well... a mess may be generous. It's one of those "sit on the toilet with a bucket" type deals and dd1 usually misses one end of the other.

I am sooooooo sick. And today is Solstice (major holiday in our faith). So dh and I swapped the lead in terms of gift opening... one parent in bathroom, one in living room.

Tor really loves his gifts, but the super expensive vulli teether has to go back... the water in the "sterile ring" has little lumpy "floaters". One actually looks like a small bug! He loves the teether though, so I guess the exchange will be worth it,

Soo.... DH complains that our LO won't take longer naps during the day (usually just half an hour) while I'm at work. He also tells me that he holds DS for naps and sometimes naps too. I was perplexed because on the weekend DS naps for 1-2 hours for me. This weekend DH was holding DS for a nap while I worked on the computer. DH started snoring really loud (he wears a cpap machine to bed so he doesn't snore at night), and let out a even louder snort that woke DS. DS almost started crying, but then decided to just be awake and woke up DH with his wiggling. Mystery solved

Happily married mom to DS (Aug 09) and two furry troublemakers.

My little monkey's bottom two teeth cut through last week, and boy, are they cute!! He was a little fussier, but nothing to write home about. He is such a super trooper! Also, he saw his first carousel today and got all stiff-spasmy like babies do when they are over-stimming a bit... it was really cute.

I've been soooo out of the loop! I just caught up on our thread and have enjoyed reading about everyone's happenings.

All of the pictures of your babies are just so darn adorable. Maybe someday I'll get something up of my kiddos...or figure out how to link to Facebook.

To those of you going through tuff times. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Life can really throw ringers at us and this is not an easy time of year to deal.

Hopefully I will be able to chime in more often!

Married to DH 7 years and have three fantastic kiddos! DS 6, DD 4, and DS 2 ...... lo and behold another is on the way!

Teeth already!? I really think that my little guy is teething but I am not holding my breath, since my dd didn't get teeth till she was a year. Any pics?

Wombat, I'm sorry about your Solstice! I hope it's a short lived bug and you're all through it soon.

Teeth - DD is obviously working on it (drool, chew, drool, repeat!) but it usually takes my babies a while.

Slimkins, DD has been doing that "overstim" shaking a lot lately - it's very cute! She is overwhelmed by all the things she wants to grab and then when she has grabbed something, by putting it in her mouth . . . I think we got her perfect gifts for the holidays.

Ok, here is a couple. Not the easiest pic to take, but you get the idea....

one
two
three

he must take after his daddy, because I still actually have a baby tooth. I'm sure mine didn't come in this early

We're feeling a bit better today, at least the toast and advil is staying down!

Those teeth are adorable! DD1 had her first tooth at 4 months but dd2 didn't have teeth till almost a year. I can tell ds is teething but don't know which sib he'll take after more.

I know just what you are going through. I had to cut onoins out to get some peace, and then start giving my baby salt baths to calm him down. I have a homeopathic colic tincture that has also been a lifesaver. Still I don't remember my daughter being this hard.

Hi guys!

I haven't been posting much lately but I just skimmed all the posts to try to catch up.

Adelaide is growing like a weed and still the happiest baby on the planet. Very high needs, but very happy.

Last week we flew from Fairbanks, Alaska to Colorado Springs, Colorado. It was supposed to be about 17 hours, but ended up being much, much longer. The first two flights went BEAUTIFULLY and then I asked someone to direct me toward my next flight and I found out I had a ticket for a 'phantom flight'. They sold me a ticket to a flight that doesn't exist! The real flight (and what was printed on my boarding pass but NOT my itinerary) left 12 hours earlier! So after a whole big mess I ended up in a hotel for the night and finally made it to Colorado the next day. Adelaide was a real trooper and through the whole deal I only lost the fleece part of my kindercoat and some pride.

I did have my first experience with a real creeper while nursing. That was fun. After finding out I was going to be staying in Minneapolis and NOT Colorado Springs, I found an empty gate to nurse Addie because I thought she could use some quiet time. I get set up, even have a cover (the kind with the boning so I can see her) and I look up and over my shoulder and there's some guy standing there staring! My jaw D R O P P E D and he scurried off before I collected myself enough to say anything.

My little giant is quickly growing out of her 3-6 month clothes, and all her 'from Santa' clothes are sized 6-9 months! Yay baby!

Gald to hear everyone's well, though I'm sorry about all the sickness!

Sarah. Married to my Mirus, raising my DD1 (Aug. '09) and my DD2 (March '11) and waiting for my newest (April '14)!

She's on formula and she's been tolerating it fine, so it's not dietary.

I discovered, however, that she's mildly constipated. Kaiser recommends juice/water, but she won't drink either. I'm thinking of adding extra water to 1 or 2 of her bottles a day to get her to take it? I'm kinda in the woods here because I've never FF before.

I also think she's teething. I bought her infant tylenol, and that seems to help a bit.

I've tried the colic tablets before, I don't know if that's what she needs but they're not expensive so it's probably worth a shot.

Feel better today now that DH is here too.

DD is officially scooting! Not far or for long - just like 1 or 2 feet at a time - she gets frustrated & asks to be picked up - but she can do it!

We gave her an IKEA wooden baby gym for the holidays - & she loves it!

Hope you are all well & having fun!

We had a nice holiday. I wasn't going to get Jules anything, but couldn't help it, and did. It was a local made wooden green car. He could really care less and was just so amazed with the wrapping paper. He loves wrapping paper.

Sarah, I am so sorry about your experience with the creepy lurker. That is one of the main reasons why I am always covered in public. I'd also hate for my husband to be around and have to witness a guy doing that. He is a really chill man, but I think he would lose his noodles!

Ryden will be 4 and half months (if I go by true weeks) on tuesday, and hasn't really started rolling over yet. When he is on his back, he will turn his head and look up and above himself and turn his body as if he is attempting it. He will also start pushing off with his legs to where he is kinda scooting on his back. That is as close as he gets. He does pretty good with tummy time, but it doesn't seem to have occurred to him yet to roll-over. Anyhoo, can't wait to see him accomplish it.

We also had some nice holidays. Hope everyone else did as well.

Sarah, I had a creepy experience on an airplane with a couple of guys staring. My husband was sitting right there and it must have taken some incredible self control for him to leave them alone! I just stared right back at them until they stopped.

We don't celebrate the holidays, but we get together with friends/family who do celebrate. Here are a few pics:

I wanted to say thanks to all the mamas who answered my questions at the start of the month. They were helpful, and I appreciated it!
We've sinced found out that our baby is delayed and might have some neuro issues or something from her rough start (pregnancy with the birthmom).
She's still with us, and is harder to place now that she isn't totally healthy. We've had a adoptive family back down when they heard about it.
And she's already very attached you know, so I hope they find someone soon for this little wonderful girl.

So, I have a question today too, how much does your babies weigh, and how long are they? (And how old.) Our Tiny is tiny, hence the "nickname", but I was just wondering how much smaller she is than other babies with normal development. Because I know it's a wide range of normal. (She's 19 weeks.)

And you all have such beautiful babies! I had to look at some of the pictures when I was here.

-pixie, my dear, and (A-88), N-98, Littlest-06/00-08/00, J-03 & Little Miss Cotton Ball Button-03 (SN), S-05, Hope-loss 09/09, Bean-loss 04/10, and littlePopcorn due feb. 8th -11.

She's still with us, and is harder to place now that she isn't totally healthy. We've had a adoptive family back down when they heard about it.
And she's already very attached you know, so I hope they find someone soon for this little wonderful girl.

So, I have a question today too, how much does your babies weigh, and how long are they? (And how old.) Our Tiny is tiny, hence the "nickname", but I was just wondering how much smaller she is than other babies with normal development. Because I know it's a wide range of normal. (She's 19 weeks.)

And you all have such beautiful babies! I had to look at some of the pictures when I was here.
Jonah was 18 pounds and 27 inches at his four month check up, which put him at the top of the charts at 95th and 97th percentiles.

Happily married mom to DS (Aug 09) and two furry troublemakers.

Sarah... yikes! What a weirdo

Sunshyn Jonah is so cute ... he looks just like his daddy!

Pixie Cavan had his 4 month about a week and a half ago. He weighed 12 lbs 12 oz and was 24.5 inches long (my little string bean). You're definitely right about there being a wide range of normal.

He's scooting all over the place now and can roll from front to back and back to front.

We had such an awesome holiday. It was really exciting because this is the first Christmas in our new house. I went nuts and got the biggest tree I could find. Cavan had a blast trying to eat all his new toys but he liked the wrapping paper best of all.

We had an interesting holiday season... flu bug/tummy bug on Solstice, then mastitis for Christmas! I'm still recovering and very glad DH has this week off from work!

Other than the health stuff though the past week was nice... lots of family and friends, nice gifts, snuggles, and baby love. Tor got a bunch of rattles, teethers, and toys with wheels along with the quilt I made him. The girls got tons of faux food, play cookware, and toys for their play kitchen. Plus a pogo stick type bouncer for dd1 and a bunch of bilibos for dd2 (suggested by her OT to help with her sensory integration therapy).

Let's see... Tor is at the "big" end of the bell curve, he's a bit over 20lbs and outgrowing his 9mo clothing now at 19 weeks. He has only rolled over a few times but he will scoot his way across the living room floor every time. DD1 didn't really crawl (she crawled for about 3 days then started walking) but DD2 didn't walk till her first birthday so I wonder what ds is going to do.
