Fern, so glad to hear you figured out a way to get what you want! I hope you succeed in your fet. Siblings are nothing less than wonderful. Stalking!

That's exciting Fern. Best of luck to you.

This week I made a bunch of purees. Plum, sweet potato, pea, carrot, apples. I put them in ice cube trays and froze them. DH is feeding them once per day. We will try to work up to 2 times per day. Today Oliver was on his knees and hands. That boy will be crawling soon! So crazy. Claire isn't that mobile but she can sit on her own now.

Hello everyone!

I apologize in advance for not commenting on each your posts. I have read and enjoyed hearing your updates with all the adorable kiddos. It's amazing that last year at this time we were all in the first trimester of pregnancy and here we are talking about our 4-6 mi th old kids!

So the twins are doing very well. Tomorrow (Friday, July 7) they will be 7 months! Due to their early arrival they are about 2.5 months behind where they should be for 7 month olds but eventually they will catch up. They are rolling both ways. Alisa does quite well with lifting her head, while Joe is rather weaker and can't hold up his head as long.
They're are still taking bottles only of pumped breast milk and I supplement 1 bottle at night and 1 in the morning of formula as I am a bit short on my supply. We are not eating solids yet, they are not nearly strong enough to sit in a high chair and they are very uninterested in food.
Last week they started sleeping through the night! They go in for the night about 7pm and usually go until 6:30am. It has been a wonderful week
As of August I will be leaving my job to stay home with them all day. I feel sad and guilty not spending more time with them so we made the decision last week that I will be a SAHM! I'm excited and nervous but I think it will be great for all of us.

Woo Hoo Rebecca. Glad you get to stay at home and you got that all worked out! Best of luck to you. Thank you for sharing a pic of your lovely cuties! SOOO adorable! They look so alike!! Claire and Oliver are so different so it is cute that yours look more like twins.

We are doing well here. Still getting situated in Florida but we are getting there. Only a few more boxes left in the house. :P
I found a photographer here and we are going to do 6 month photos (a little late) in a few weeks. I'm excited. It is so amazing how fast they change!
Babies are eating more solids and getting more mobile. Oliver actually crawled a few feet last week but hasn't crawled since. They are getting up on their hands and knees all the time. DH just bought a baby fence the other day. I think we will need it sooner rather than later.

Hope you are all doing well!

Hi everyone

Rebecca how are you enjoying being a SAHM so far? I hope you make lots of lovely memories with your babies! They are so cute!

Rq please share your pics when you've had them done! Glad you're done moving and that you are settling in nicely. Must have been difficult with two babies.

Hi everyone else!

Time is just flying by, it's crazy! G rolled from back to front by himself today. Now he can finally roll all the way around, sit, and he LOVES standing up. His legs are so strong. He is absolutely gorgeous . Eating everything in sight. We had a huge struggle with milk for a few weeks (he refused his milk and I struggled to get fluids into him, little monster!) But that's better now phew. He was blessed and annointed at church this past Sunday and we had a nice gathering of family & friends at our house afterwards. Growing up wayyy too fast imo!

As for the FET- no idea when it's going to happen. I have to have one normal pp cycle and period before we can start the process. I'm tracking my temps etc on fertility friend but despite being off bcp since end of June, I still haven't ovulated it seems. I haven't had a period since giving birth so I have no idea how long this is going to take. Oh well.

How odd your period hasn't started yet fern! I hope it starts soon so you can go through with your FET. How is the divorce going? G sounds like he is doing well!!!

Glad your able to stay home now Rebecca! How is it going?

Afm, Gage is doing great! Such a big boy at 19 lbs 12 1/2 ozs and 28inches long! He is around 90th percentile all across the chart. He sleeps in his crib in his own room now and still has some hard nights, but for the most part he does really well. Our biggest challenge right now is keeping him from leaking pee at night. He sits for a good while and then will lose balance. He will roll all the way across the room to get something he wants, and can turn 360 degrees while on his belly to change direction. Crawling will be coming soon! He gets solids twice a day now, at lunch and dinner. Still not interested in breakfast but that's ok. He loves to swim!! All in all he is such a joy!! He is definately the light of my life!!

Oh, Froggy he is so cute. I just love this age!

Fern/Froggy, glad to hear the babies are doing so great. Fern, thanks for the update on the FET. I was wondering about you and where you were in that process.

Today we got a video of Oliver crawling. He is quite mobile now! Still not all that coordinated but he can get where he wants to go. Claire is more of a scooter now. She doesn't care to move around as much as baby boy. Yesterday she was pushing backwards all around the room on her back. It was too funny!

We are all doing great. I love working from home. I have a great office set up so I get lots of work done and then I can take breaks and see my babies/hubby all day. It just makes the work day so much better.

Hope everyone is doing well.

If anyone checks in - so glad all the babies are doing so good! It's crazy that they are so mobile already. Mine keeps getting stuck under the table or against the couch lol then he screams! We're having to babyproof already.

In other news, AF started yesterday so we're starting FET! I'm nervous as hell. I hope it works but at the same time I'm so scared to have 2 babies.

Hi girls. It's lovely to read updates on our clever babies!
Finlo is sitting for short periods and trying hard to crawl but not quite there yet. He's just starting solids and seems to like it, but still nursing full time round the clock too!
He loves his swimming lessons and we are taking him to Spain in a couple of weeks

In other news, my period returned 2 weeks ago and we are soon going to start trying for another baby. If no joy by December, we are going to do another round of IVF. I'm excited to go again and it feels much less stressful now because I have Finlo so I don't feel the same level of desperation.
