Hi all!


Haven't heard from you in a while, and thought I would put a post out to see if any of you are lurking around here. How are you?!?!?


DS (nearing 8 months) and I are dealing with all the colds DD brings back from pre-school, Not fun! But, at least being breastfed as long as I get sick, it seems like DS stays pretty healthy. He is eating solids with a vengeance - I nurse him, then he eats and eats. He likes anything he can actually chew on - really is not as much on things like avacado and banana like DD enjoyed. His particular favorites are chicken, salmon and steamed rice. He grabs his sister's sippy cups anytime he can, and tries to guzzle water down, too. I think he's going to be eating whole steaks and potatoes by summer! :)


He sleeps so much less than his sister, which has been frustrating. He goes down around 8 or 9 at night, then is up at 11pm, 2am, 5am and then up for the day at around 6 am. At least he usually takes a couple of decent naps during the day, too. I was so looking forward to the 6 month mark which is when his sister started sleeping through the night... he marked the occasion by going through a phase where he would either have to be *constantly* attached to my boob, or wake up every 30-45 minutes. 


These days watching DS in action is an awesome/terrible sight to behold - he is going to absolutely *destroy* our house - already he will open every drawer and cabinet he can reach, and throw everything on every shelf in the kitchen on the floor with great glee. We're going to have to do a much more thorough job of baby-proofing this time. 


How is everyone else doing? Is family life back to "normal" yet?

Loving being a stay at home mamma to DD 10/07, and newly arrived DS 7/26/10
