I can't believe it's been almost 7 months already! Our babies are growing up way too fast!<br><br>
Kade is sitting well, jumps in my lap all the time, babbles, says "hi" now, gives kisses, lays on my shoulder and says "awww"(usually when I get home from work <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/heartbeat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="heartbeat">), he isn't crawling but he will sit on his hands and knees for a minute. I am loving him right now, he is so much fun!

happy december, everyone!<br><br>
ezra fell asleep with daddy this morning which is a miracle! dh used to be able to put him to sleep when he took a bink but now that he's refusing it, i've been the sole putter-to-sleeper. dad & son have been upstairs in the la-z-boy for almost an hour. woo hoo! (and i was able to clean, organize & rearrange the study....i'm a chronic rearranger & organizer ~ it makes me happy & i function better without clutter. don't get me wrong....we have a lot of shtuff sitting around but i like everything to have it's place. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
we're expecting an ice storm today. it's dreary outside & freezing cold! i skipped my homeopathy study group this morning & am so glad i did because i'm really looking forward to the tie dye party my friend organized & i really don't like to be oversheduled. i'm still in my robe with nasty hair that desperately needs washing (along with the rest of my body) but i've been productive & i feel cozy.

wow, dec already. the year's almost over!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: I feel like I'm still catching my breath from seeing the positive pregnancy test in '06, in some ways! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Claire is tons of fun as well--I hope I am taking enough pics and writing enough down in her baby book...spending enough time just cuddling on her, and all my kids <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> this time goes so fast, before we know it, we'll have toddlers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Or teenagers....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!">!<br><br>
On to more pleasant thoughts....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Ooh, I'm jealous, a homeopathy class and a tie dye party both sound enormously fun! I would love to overschedule myself if it was for stuff like that! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

Iris turned six months old today! She was at the ped. for her 6 month visit yesterday and has doubled her birth weight to 17 lbs. 6 oz. She is also 28 1/2 inches tall, which puts her at the 99th percentile for height! Dh and I are both pretty tall (5'8" and 6'1"), and it looks like DD will be, too.<br><br>
She popped TWO teeth this week...bottom left on Monday and bottom right on Wednesday. Ped. said it looks the top two are ready to break through any day.<br><br>
I took this adorable picture of Iris and her cousin this morning. Iris was on her tummy trying to scoot and her cousin kept offering words of encouragement: "Move, baby! Move!" She finally asked to hold her and I got this shot:<br><a href="http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x123/laneysprout/CIMG1356.jpg" target="_blank">http://i182.photobucket.com/albums/x...t/CIMG1356.jpg</a>

Hey y'all. I grew up in Florida - that's where I got the y'all. I haven't lived there since '95 ( <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/jaw2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="jaw2"> man that's a long time ago) but I will always say y'all.<br><br>
I found a pair of longies I knit a while back - like a year and a half ago I guess when I was knitting a bunch testing a pattern I was developing. They fit Henry pretty well, so he had those on all day today. Now I want to knit him a few more pairs, and actually knit to his measurements and everything with extra high waist to keep his tummy extra warm.<br><br>
I am blaming yesterday and today's excessive drool and maybe a bit of a fever on more teething. I guess we're doing the fast and furious method of teething because man he's not really getting a break!<br><br>
My husband got Guitar Hero III today and is attempting to be reasonable about only playing it a bit. Ha. Well, at least Delia likes watching him play and you can pause mid-song so he won't completely ignore Henry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
That E2L is SO not up my alley, but I do need to get more active and lose some weight. Delia and I have been doing a few Sun Salutations each morning. Feels good just to get stretched out and that helps me to move well during the day.<br><br>
I am tired of my evenings. Henry's taking a while to get to sleep the last few days. While I'm doing that my husband is trying to get Delia to sleep but it usually ends up I get her to sleep after Henry's asleep. Then I get about 20 minutes after she falls asleep before he's awake again and by the time he's back asleep it's 11 PM and all I want to do is sit around with my eyes half closed. Just a bit of complaining from me - I feel better already. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
December?! How did this happen!? Henry will be seven months tomorrow. Crazy.

Happy December everyone!! I can't believe its Christmas time already?!?!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: Elise is already 7mths old (Nov 26th) and its so hard to believe our babies are getting so big already. She is trying very hard to crawl she probably would be crawling by now if she was put on the floor more or if she liked being on her belly . She likes to sit much more than get up on all fours. She has 2 teeth and loves chewing on carrots (I give her whole carrots to teeth on). She is a great sleeper, she is our only sleeper the other 2 girls still (14 & 5) get up at night<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:.<br><br>
We had a great day today. It was our oldest 14th<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/birthday.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="birthday"> party. We had a Survivor party complete w/ eating pretty GROSS things and challenges. The kids loved it and they all had a great time. We had a joint party w/ one of my very good friends dd as our girls were born on the same day/year. So we had tribes and all.

I grew up in FL too!! As you can see I say y'all all the time. I smile everytime I see you write it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
My DH has Guitar Hero III too and he LOVES it. DD2 will say "Daddy, it time to ROCK!" And they will play, she gets all her instruments out and sings and plays too. Its very fun to watch.

I went to be at 7:30 last night and stayed in bed for 12 hours! This is unheard of for me. Everyone is still sleeping and it is snowing for the first time outside. VEry peaceful morning <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
DH has a recital for his piano students today. It is at a loft in TriBeCa and there will be about 120 people there -- busy day! I have to get flowers for all his students soon.

Hey Megan or Krystal or anyone else doing Eat To Live... I was wondering what it was (because I thought you were both veggie?) so instead of being lazy and asking you guys, I looked it up (ha ha). It's pretty similar to the diet I'd been trying to follow, I think. But I am wondering if you read his book? Is there any point reading it? I'm going to a book store later so if it's worth a read, I guess I'll pick it up. But it seems pretty straightforward from poking around the website...

Hi everyone...I got lost in the Nov thread, but now I am back<br><br>
Julianne is crawling now, mostly backwards tho<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> She has been eating solids for a couple of weeks...I have been considering a diaper sprayer...anyone have one??? Is it helpful?? Do I have to rinse her diapers before washing (they are still runny, but pretty gooey too)???<br><br>
Though we were against it from the beginning, we are now co-sleeping. It started because we are away from home until atleast Feb and we didn't bring the crib, just a pack n play. We put a really comfy tempurpedic pad in the bottom of it, but dd must feel insecure or something without her crib, so she will only nap in it. I have actually been getting more sleep now that she doesn't have to wake me up to have a nibble...I think she is pretty much attached to my boob most of the night<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

You can skim it at the store but you can skip buying it for sure -- 4 fruits at least a day, 1 lb cooked veggies, 1 pound raw veggies (greens), at least 1 cup beans -- no dairy no meat (easy!)<br><br>
I love it!
