Thanks for all of your support! I really think I've lost that friend and I just need to get over it. I'm lucky to have a really supportive husband to remind me that I shouldn't give up on having friends even if it hurts when it doesn't work out. The baby's been 'helping' me with renovations, holding my screwdriver for me and letting me know that he doesn't like the sound of the drill

They try to intimidate me. It won't work! Oh, they're looking inside the house while I type! They think they can scare me...


It's funny you would say that. When my sis and her kids were visiting, my 4 year old nephew saw a squirrel in the yard and acted all freaked out and told DH that he hates squirrels. DH said, "Why? Squirrels won't hurt you." Nephew answers (as serious as can be) "Yes they can. They eat people and kill them." Maybe he knows something we don't.

On our way to 700! Does May know we're competing?

Scarlet is such a catnapper! Well, always has been. I'm trying the 2-3-4 rule I read about on another thread. I'm hoping if she gets into a routine, she'll sleep longer.

Gotta go play piggly-winks with toddler...

I saw that 2-3-4 thing too. I was watching Daniel today, and he actually kind of follows it. Odd. I hope it wasn't from some evil book like the Baby Whisperer or something.

Two hours after they wake up, they'll nap. Three hours after they wake from the nap, they'll nap again. Four hours after the second nap, and it's bedtime.

Mine naps about and hour and a half after waking, an hour and a half before bedtime and has a few 10 minute naps during the day. It doesn't seem logical.

Scarlet shows signs of tiredness around these times, but it's not always feasible due to ds or whatever we're doing during the day. With ds as a babe, he napped at certain times and for at least an hour at a time. Scarlet sleeps anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes at a time. If she' REALLY tired, I'll get an hour, but that's rare.

I'd like to start working around her schedule instead of ds's so I can get some things done around the house and give ds the attention he needs/wants. We'll see...

thats interesting Caroline Kinda follows that to, but seems to be 2 hrs between each, like wakes up 7 am, naps 9 am ( length verys between 30 min -2 hrs), 12 or 1 naps, 4- 430 naps, bed at 8 -9 pm, so i guess if she skipped that middle nap it would be close to it... she is my first to actually nap predictably ever!!

Daniel is in this hilarious babbling phase. He looks at you really earnestly and just goes on and on and on "DA! Dadadad nana buh." And if you act like you understand him, he cracks up. He went to bed with DH an hour ago, which is really weird.

Lol. Gianna loooooooves to hear herself talk. Loudly. I didn't realize how noisy she is until I was around some other babes her age and she was dominating the baby convos....of course DH is quick to point out that I never shut up either so....

Yeah the G Force seems to be more of 2 hours between each. If she's awake for longer she gets craaaaaaaaanky.

S likes to talk, but so do all of my girls. She usually says "bababa", but this morning as I walked past her pacj n play with Claire who needed her breakfast bottle I swear she said "mama"!!! So I had to pick her up. I've been trying to teach her "dada" so she knows who to ask for when poopy.


She had her first food lasrt night. I broke down and let her have some brocoli to suck on. She kept grabbing my hand so I would put it in her mouth.

melissa - that video was so cute!

Last night, Scout got up on her hands and knees for the first time. It was short lived, but it was really cool to see her learning how to get up off of her tummy. She's getting better and better at sitting up, but still topples over frequently.

She has definitely been babbling a lot more lately. Her little personality is so cute. I don't know what it is, but it just seems like she has blossomed as an individual just in the last couple weeks. Last night, DH even said to me, "Is it just me, or does Scout just seem cuter these last few days?" I knew exactly what he meant.

Weight Watchers is going well for me so far. Tonight is my first weigh-in. Even if I wouldn't lose any weight at all on this program (well, I'd better! ), it has been good for me because I've been eating a more well-balanced healthy diet and I feel better.

Forgive me if I already posted this pic, but I just think it's so cute...

Scout bundled up for a walk.

I wish used ones would go on sale in about 3-4 months! We are well into mediums - on the second snap on the thigh and the tightest on the tummy. I have 14, which sees me through 2-3 days at daycare (usually 2 with extras). At night we use medium swaddlebees fitteds with wool.

Abby still isn't crawling, but she can scoot all over the room very fast! She will pull herself along with her arms and kick with her legs, she just never gets up off of her tummy!
