Glad to see this active again!
Will is 5 months old today! At his last check up three weeks ago, he was 21 lbs and 27.25 inches, so I'm estimating that he's around 22 lbs now and about 27.50 inches. No solids yet, waiting another month or so.
He loves to roll around constantly and blow raspberries. He has two teeth poking through now.
Kayla is a little over 5 months now, I started her on solids a few days ago, only bananas so far. She didn't know what to do with it the first time, but by the second day she was loving it an slurping it eagerly off the spoon. Sweet potatoes next, I'm making all her baby food, since I have the time and it is saving some money I make it using my breast milk, so it's even that much healthier.
She rolls around like crazy and so badly wants to crawl. Not sitting up unsupported yet, but I'm sure that is right around the corner. She is out of an infant carrier now (still within weight limits), she hated it, too cramped, also too heavy to carry her in it. She has a big girl car seat now, rides in the normal part of a stroller, sits in a shopping cart with a cover, and in a high chair at restaurants with a cover. She loves the space and being able to see everything. When did she get so big??
Her nights are SO much better now, after doing ferber method. She goes to bed at 7/7:30 and gets up at 6/6:30, and has 2 night feedings somewhere in there.
Can't believe how big our babies are getting! Where does the time go? Is it sappy that I already look back at her newborn pictures and feel sad
I love all of the baby pictures, such adorable kiddos! Thanks for sharing ladies!
I can't believe that Vayda will be 6 months old in a few days, the time has really flown by! She has one tooth poking through on the bottom, she is sitting up without help, and she is starting to pull up onto her knees and rock back and forth. She has also begun to scoot across the hardwood floors so we have had to go ahead and baby proof everything. Vayda loves her walker she has figured out how to move around the main level where we have hard floors and she loves the freedom of it. She also loves to play in her walker outside on the driveway. She has had a hard time with allergies this spring, starting last month after we had a dust storm my two girls and I all developed terrible allergies. Both of the girls ended up with croup as a result and Vayda was on steroids for 4 days. Because of that its been a rough month. I have decided to hold off on solids for her until she is completely better, we tried solids a couple of times at 4.5 months and at 5 months and she pushed everything right back out, then completely refused to open her mouth. I'm not worried though, she loves her milk! She drinks mostly breastmilk that I pump and a little bit of formula each day, and her pediatrician said that breastmilk or formula is all she actually "needs" until 12 months old.
Just bumping this up again because I keep seeing all the due in 2014 threads and they make me want to be pregnant again so bad, haha.
Roxy is 7 and a half months old. She's trying desperately to crawl, but hasn't quite mastered it yet. She hasn't yet figured out how to sit herself up, but if I sit her up in front of something she can grab she can pull herself to standing. She's starting finger foods now, loves her vegemite toast! And tonight we got our very first distinct "Da-Da". It might not be in context yet, but it still brought a tear to my eyes!
I too have been thinking about number 2. Though I plan on waiting till next May to TTC.
My precious Kayla is 7 months old! Can't believe its more than half way to her first Bday! She has been doing the army crawl since 6 months, she gets up on her knees but doesn't try to crawl like that. Probably since she gets around so well already...she is also starting to put herself in a sitting position, though she could care less about sitting, she CAN sit, she doesn't like to hold still though so sitting usually lasts for a minute
She is such a water baby, loves to go in her pool and take baths, she is also enjoying her new baby swing outside on the swing set she says dada all the time (no context). She is also a climber, anything you lay on the floor, including us she has to climb on and over. She has always been super active and only more so as she gets more mobile! I think she will be a handful as a toddler! also as you will see one of my cats is best buds with her. Even though her petting him means ripping out a fist full of fur he let's her. He is always by her side, it's super cute!
Still eating well, mostly breastfeeding still but she enjoys her mashed fruits and some veggies, no finger food yet.

We decided that we'd be okay NTNP for #3 once Will is a year old. Which isn't far off as he's going to be 7 months in 4 days! He's in size 18 month clothes and 5-6 size diapers. He never stops moving and he only ever wants to be outside, no matter the weather!
So glad to see this thread active again! I was wondering if anyone else was thinking about being pregnant again, I have been, but dh and I have always said we would only have 2 so it would take some convincing Vayda is doing so well she started crawling a couple of days after she turned 6 months old, and she is now speed crawling and cruising, she can also stand alone for a second or two before sitting down and she can crawl up stairs She has started to say "mama" and "dada" and sometimes it seems like she definitely knows what that means and sometimes it doesn't so who knows. She has learned to give "hi fives" and "lip kisses" when asked, and she things the word "no" is funny. I've been pumping exclusively but have been slowly weaning so she is down to about 15oz of breastmilk plus 15oz of formula plus 2oz of baby food per day. She loves her bottles, she isn't to keen on eating from a spoon but she likes finger foods so we have been trying that since she has mastered the pincher grip and is able to pick up small enough pieces now.
