Thought I'd start this month's thread since I'm up late! This is the only time I can get anything done! DS is a night owl like myself and doesn't go to bed until 10:30-12AM. It makes for one tired mama.... especially since he is also very high needs during the day AND because we BF so much. ZzzzZZzzz (-.-)

Me (37) ~ DH (39) ~ DS (3) ~ TTC #2 since 4/10

I'm awake. Not by choice.

Public utilities was banging on our door at 7:40am to ask us to move our cars. For a non-emergency, scheduled workday that they've not notified us about. Oh, and they're turning off the water.

DH normally gets up at 9am. The babe and I sleep in.

Grrrr. Argh.

They didn't even start working until an HOUR after they woke us up.

good morning girls!

well, last night was unusual for us too. Axel had gone to bed late, but we heard him occaisionally talking to himself until after 11. The baby slept until 6 am ! But Axel was up at 5 am and after dh spending a bit of time with him he brought him up to our bed. weird.

Happy October! I also miss our ddc.
Evangeline has found her tongue, and is always sticking it out in funny ways. I'll have to get a picture.

Oh- Serenitii- hey, you should keep drawing! It wasn't until I had Axel that I started to do it seriously- because I had LESS time. Looks good!

i think Caroline might be coming down with her first cold she was kinda rough sleeping last night, she never fully woke up but she seemed to want to be latched on all night long and kinda snorty ( all signs my others had when might be starting something ) and this morning she has a bunch of boogies lol i hope it doesn't get bad!! my other kids haven't been sick but i am betting its was brought home from school.

so she has been rolling back to front for about a month but not often, then the other day she rolled from front to back but just the once and NOW she is rolling to her tummy every time you lay her down and she hates being on her tummy!! tho it is getting better. but yesterday every time i laid her down asleep she would at some point roll over and wake her self up! i guess though i am lucky that its just rolling, because dd2 was crawling at 5 month!!!

Hi, first time posting in this forum. DS2 was born 4/27/07, and I have a 17 yo DD and 6 yo DS1. Evan is sleeping through the night, but up for huge stretches during the day and gets a bit difficult to entertain. He's rolling over and tripoding for short bits, on the verge of sprouting a tooth for over a month. I just love this age of babyhood, and I'm pretty sure he's my last (of course, I've said that twice before ), so I'm hanging on to every sweet moment!

i fell off the thread from last month, it got too fast to follow, plus nursing strikes and teething and I don't even know how we made it to October. : woo.

Anyways, the weather is gorgeous and Little G has gotten GREAT with her feet....gets them both in her mouth and just sucks away. Cracks me up.

I love how I'm mildly interesting to her, but everything daddy does is SO. DANG. FUNNY. She laughs and laughs at him no matter what, but I've got to be practically standing on my head to get even a giggle.

She has graduated to 9-12 month size clothes. Sigh. She's so ridiculously long....and she'll only be 5 months in a few days.

I hope everyong is enjoying the arrival of fall with their babes!

Happy Fall!!!

I can not believe our babes will be 6 months....how did that happen??? :

Abby is slightly sick. Austin did bring home a cold from school & so now she has a slight cough & green boogies. I also have a raspy throat & clogged head.

Has anyone's LO changed sleeping patterns? Abby used to go down pretty easily in her side car, stay there until about 4-5am & then nurse till about 8am. Now, she is up until 12am, will not go down unless she is nursing all night long. I can sneak away...but don't I dare move her to her bed. Thing is, I do not get deep sleep that way. Oh well....this too shall pass.

I hope all cold's pass soon! Happy Fall!

Welcome, Susan! Queen_anne, I know these threads move so gang fast! It's hard to keep up! Nursing strike...uughh...that does not sound like fun at all. You may already know this and probably don't need this info at this point if you are over the strikes, but I have heard that momma and baby laying nekkie in bed often is good for making baby want to take the breast for some reason. A few people I know have had great success with it. Not sure why it works.

A - Oooohh! Elbees - I am jealous!!! I thought about snatching a few from the momma who is selling a whole bunch on diaperswappers right now (they may be all gone by now - haven't checked the thread since yesterday), but I keep talking myself out of it.

My sis and her DH and their 3 kids are staying at my house right now. We are having a great time. Scout LOVE to watch the kids (all under 6 yrs) play. She's all smiles and she has actually let out a few belly laughs, which she had never done before. They are really messy and noisy...it's been a little nerve wracking for me because I am used to having a peaceful and quiet house. LOL

Here are a few pics:

Auntie meeting Scout for the first time.
Not happy.
Chillin' in the Jumperoo. :

Happy 6 month b-day to Hannah!! : I can't believe she's so big!! She's just getting so big. DH is always saying that she looks like a little kid now, instead of a 'baby'. I lurve her...she's got sooooo much personality,and she can roll, wiggle, scoot her way around so well...I bet she'll be crawling any minute now. She's still drooling like a champ, and has had the same little white spot on her gums for months. Last night, DH set her up on our gigantic ottoman...and let go. She stood there for about a minute and a half, holding on to the ottoman!! She is just so awesome!!!

Iris'mom, Welcome!! I can't imagine having 3 in the age ranges you've got! Kudos to you!

Look at scout all cute with her little Pebbles pony tail!! I wish I could do that to Hannah's hair...it's so fine that it just breaks right off!

I am TOTALLY up for the 500 post challenge!!

Aileen, Mama to Hannah James, 4/01/07 Smartest kid I've ever known! And Gabriel Joseph, born at home 3-31-10!! Delaying and selectively vax'ing

happy fall momma's

It's my first time posting in the April mommies thread too (I think) I was posting in the DDC but this thread gets cruising and huge before I ever get to it.

Caitlin was born 4/28 (we almost didn't make it in April). I can't believe how much she's grown, I was looking at pictures this weekend and nearly cried remembering how little she was. She sitting up now and she's cutting her second tooth: I feel like it's all happening so fast and I just can't get enough of her.

She really wants to crawl, she keeps trying, mostly she just squirms backward. And she really wants to eat, this weekend she grabbed at my dinner, nearly got it for herself too.

Wife to DH Chris, Momma to :Caitlin Mae (4-28-07)

subbing!
I've been going a little nuts with renovating an old house and watching out for my newly crawling babe! Having him mobile is kinda scary. We now sleep on a mattress on the floor and he can get off on his own if we're not careful.

To be fair, the official on-your-hands-and-knees crawling is slower and often ends up on his face so he usually does a kick-fall forward scoot because it's really fast. He is really excited about traveling, see flickr

What a pretty good looking family! I'm guessing they're your parents, and you have some neices and nephews there? But mostly your sisters and brothers?

Noah is still just a blob. A BIG 20 # blob. Are bigger babies just slower? hmmmm....

He also has a cold and nights have been LLLOOOONNNNGGGG!!! Yuck! I am tired. DS1 is behaving better though, and to be honest that makes all the difference!

We close on our house on 10/22. DH has a 3 day break and we move in. Then, of course, I have to find a job. To support the mortgage. bleh!

Dang page 2 already! I am going to be behind on this month as well... wish I could keep up better with you wonderful mamas! But Sophie has decided to be a crap napper and crap sleeper and I am trying to read a book and progress to a nap when she naps instead of being online during naps

Seriously, she wants to be ON the boob all night long, so I'm awake every hour at least, trying to not fall asleep on top of her... SIGH. She is doing some longer naps, as long as I am right there with boob in her mouth... And I can't do that w/o using one hand and being awake pretty much. I would really like two straight hours of sleep at this point. She wasn't always this bad so I'm just saying it'll pass, it'll change, wasn't it nice she gave me a break for a month or two there between newborn sleep/lessnes and this?

She also has a cold now. Really stuffed and runny nose, poor thing.

She's sooo close to sitting up on her own-- she's done it for little stretches so I wonder if all of a sudden she'll just be able to do it for long times or if it'll still be gradual as she figures out how to reach for toys w/o falling and that she needs to stop trying to stand up while sitting

Ughhhhh Padres are STILL playing and DD's back up awake; at least DH is walking her now. This is my ONE stretch of not having to be on, like all night and all day, darnit! But I thought she was out and Pad's would be done and we'd actually have mommy and daddy time and watch TV or something SIGH!!!!!!! Just treading water here....
