Just wanted to check in and see how our beautiful babies are growing! I've been MIA due to being back at work full time, and barely having time to shower, let alone carous Mothering.com with you all! Kai is just about to be six months, is close to sitting unassisted, wants desperately to walk, and has only launched himself off the bed twice... sigh. Still BF like a beast, starting to much on avocado and sweet poatato, and screaming all.the.time!! Anyone elses baby have a crazy set of lungs? Here's a pic of Kai a couple of weeks ago, the hair is getting out of control!
Oh my gosh, he looks awesome, just beautiful and so healthy and thriving! I have been thinking about you two and wondering how you are doing!!
I'm glad to hear you are adjusting well to life back at work! Kai sure looks like a happy guy.
Okay, I updated with a pic of Luke. He just turned 5 mos last week. He's been working really hard on getting his bottom front tooth or teeth and hasn't been sleeping great because of it, poor guy. Milestone wise, he's been working quite casually on rolling over, he has all the mechanics to do it and just isn't that interested! So funny. He's more interested in all that is going on around here with two older siblings and chatting it up. He has such a repertoire of sounds and is quite expressive. He will have to be a chatterbox like the other two in order to get a word in! Haha. He's also still a smaller guy at just about 16 lbs at 5 mos. He hasn't been measured for awhile but I'd guess he's around 27 inches long. He loves the baby carriers now and is doing a lot better in the carseat, as long as he's not tired. Yay!
Sitting with big brother
Sitting for the first time
I kinda photo bombed, but I couldn't pick just one. G will be 6 months on Mar. 9th and we'll be doing a half-birthday for him since my mom is coming to visit. Should be fun! The boy is growing like a weed. We haven't taken him in for any well-baby visits; we just haven't seen the need. He rolls around on the floor and has lots to say to everyone. He's starting to find things funny so he'll actually laugh if he thinks what you're doing is funny. He's about 18 lbs now not sure of length, but he is has been in 6-12 month size clothes for the past couple months. Things are starting to normalize in our household. It's taken a bit longer integrating the 4th into the household.....kids are great with him, it's just doing day to day household things that had been a bit challenging. Love being a family of 6. It's such a nice, even number......
This is Isaac, born 9/25/11 at 43 weeks. He took his time getting here and was well worth the wait. Hobbies include starting to sit unassisted, playing with feet, throwing toys for Mommy to pick up and nursing like a champ.
@mae14 - do you swaddle your son's arms for naps? I always thought this was just for tiny babies, but our daycare puts Isaac down this way and he seems to really love it. I never would have thought to do it.
I guess I need to get on board here! Chloe is 6 months now, sitting unassisted with the occasional topple. Hates tummy time so I dont push and would rather be worn or carried all day! She recently started squealing and eating avocado, mango, asparagus and banana! Some mush, some blw. No teeth!!! Here she is a couple of days ago with her big brother!
i dont see the pictures...crap!
oh - love talking about my baby!! And seeing how all of your's are doing! So cute!!
My little Indigo is just now 6 months old. She is sitting unassisted, pulling herself up occasionally, she will probably skip traditional crawling so she can walk sooner. She demanded food at 4 months, loves to gum toddle cookies, apples and pears the best. I've actually started putting food on the spoon and handing it to her - she gets it right in her mouth. We are pretty sure she has mastered two signs - dog and bath. Always talking, always wanting to know everything that is going on. Has had a couple teeth for a while and is working on more.
We started daycare about a month ago and she has been very sick since. Right now, we are waiting to see if she caught chicken pox. Because of being sick, we are struggling with sleeping at night, which we didn't have an issue with before.
Sadly, I have a huge baby. She is about 20 lbs and maybe 27 inches or so. and wearing 18 month clothes. I didn't get to have a little baby for very long... :(
Out shopping - hat by grandma
Playing dress up! Dress by grandma
I really want to know what she is telling me here...
such a ham. loves the camera!
SuzyQ-me: Yes, we swaddle for naps and sleep at night. I had started doing it with my second child after naps and sleep were a bit of a challenge with my first. My second and third loved being swaddled until about 9-10 months and then they slept just fine after without it. How I would be able to tell they were ready for no swaddle was to try and put them down without it and if sleep at night was fine and they weren't waking to be awake (nursing and then back to sleep was fine) then I stopped. I know it's not the norm to do it for so long, but I found the startle reflex lasts for about that long.
okay I am trying again! Shhhhhesh.
