These are so cute!  It's so great to read up on everyone.

 

My little vampire still has only two bottom teeth and one fang with one poking through but not cutting through for the longest time!  I am hoping it cuts through this week, before our flight home to the states!  Teething baby plus six hour flight...no thank you!

 

I wish I could get a picture of her one top tooth, it is something else!  The only person who can rival the sharpness of that tooth is her dad, who has some serious fang action going on...I foresee many years of braces in my daughter's life.  LOL

 

Here she is streaking on a rainy Sunday Morning in Bogota.  I am so excited for the wintry wear next week and will surely take more photos then:

Congratulations PoetryLover, how exciting!!

The pics are all soooo cute!  

I can't believe Ethan's birthday is just around the corner.  This year has gone too fast.

Love seeing everyone's pictures! Sasha started visiting the toddler room in his daycare yesterday. It was bittersweet. He did really well and was really buzy the whole time, it also wore him out for the night and I got some quality time with DH. We finally broke down and got a superyard so that we can fence him in a room with us while we're doing something. It got too exhausting to follow him around the house up and down the stairs. Speaking of stairs - Sasha is now able to go down the stairs if I get him started (he tries to start the stairs head first, but if turned sideways he goes legs first and slides on his belly) He does go off the bed head first though. This is how it usually looks. orngbiggrin.gif

I love everyone's pics. Naked Emily is too cute! So is Sasha...although he looks like he's about to bust his behind getting off that bed!.

@Memz, she looks adorable all bundled up like that. It is just now getting cold here, so I have one of Emma is her winter gear.

Hey everyone!

 

All the kids are getting so big!!! Wilhelmina is our last and I am finding it a bit sad to see that soon she won't be a baby anymore... 

 

Wilhelmina is doing great, like all my kids at the same age, she had a little phase of waking up a bit more at night but she is back to her normal pattern now... She has seven teeth and is not really eating much yet... I give her little bits and pieces of what we are eating once in a while and she loves it but she seems to be reacting to wheat so I want to take things slow... my other kids were never big eaters before they were past a year anyway so I am used to it... 

 

She is now walking... she has been taking steps for a while now but I consider it walking only when they choose to walk instead of crawling and that is what she is doing now... 

 

It is really getting cold here, and snowy, so we have been out a lot... I made a babywearing coat for us and that has been keeping us nice and warm... 

 

As for me... I am starting to lose a bit of weight which usually happens for me around this time post partum.. this time I won't be getting pregnant again, so hopefully I will keep it off... 

I have been keeping busy with the kids and I have been giving babywearing and EC workshops in Montreal which has been a great way to meet all sorts of cool people... 

 

Anyway... happy holidays everyone!

Oh my, Wilhelmina is gorgeous!

Has anyone's lo started dancing?  Ethan was flailing his arms around to music yesterday, it was so cute!  On a less happy note, he seems to be getting molars and is not a happy camper.

NAK, we're cutting 4 teeth at once at seems (all of the upper incisors) so Sasha is really needy tonight. Poor bub. mecry.gif Looks like we're going to triple the number of available teeth. orngbiggrin.gif

How much he nurses really depends on a day. He is in daycare so he reverse cycles and nurses at least a couple of times a night and a few times in the evening but only drinks 4-8 Oz at daycare. When he is teething or not feeling well he nurses more, so tonight he nursed pretty much non stop, but mostly comfort nursed. During the day he is usually more distracted too and nurses less frequently. So yeah - total number of nursings a day is 6-10. I'd say if he is gaining and growing and learning you're doing great. Of course I'm no expert myself. shy.gif

Paxye - I love that video of Wilhelmina.

Ok.  Well, um, wow.  Well, last night I got a BFP.  We are, um, pleasantly shocked even though we weren't avoiding, but certainly not trying!  This came on the tails of my first PPAF.  Lordy, Griffin will only be 20 months.  And Corbin will just be starting Kinder.  And my husband is going back for his masters this Fall.  Crazy crazy crazy.  Oh, and did I mention we were supposed to have a conversation about a vasectomy at the beginning of the year?  Yes, happy.  Wow.  Just wow.

Congratulations! I can't imagine how much of a shock this is for you, though. I'm pregnant, too, and there will be about an 18 month difference between mine. Do you know when you're due? I'm expecting sometime in August myself.

Poetry Lover - based on date of conception - 9/3/11.  I took another test tonight and that puppy turned dark faster than I ever imagined considering I'm 15 DPO!  Jesus, my chart clearly says the date conceived and CLEARLY says we used "withdrawal" as our method du jour for birth control.  Guess super sperm won out!

 

24 hours later and it's sinking in. :)  The old man is already talking about a minivan...

Wow... Congrats for the BFP's!!! We are officially done... after 4 kids, DH got the big V two months ago... Though I will mourn not having another baby, I am at peace with the decision... 

 

and another wow for first birthdays!

 

Wilhelmina just turned 11 months 3 days ago so we are still a few weeks away... It shows that she is close though, since she has been walking, she has gotten so much more mature. I really don't have a baby anymore....
