Aww cute pics! Love his festive hat! Sorry about the crap days but glad things turned around.

A graduated out of physical therapy today! I was so excited. He was spoiled at Christmas by everyone as was I. My parents gifted me a loan so im so much less stressed knowing I can pay my bills and not have to pay them back. No idea where we are with weight since its been 2 weeks since it was checked. Hes been non stop sick since late October. Weve had like four of five fevers in two months. Thankfully all just colds but man. Hes learned to hate his nose Frida and boogie wipes are now on my amazon subscription list.

My resolution is to do whats best for A no matter how hard that may be. His dad is annoying me as usual but whatever

Such cute photos pretty and Dobby!

Heres C meeting Santa and in her 5 month photos:

63D7897A-CB8F-4DD1-B7B7-5592961B0647.jpgC13D63F2-050E-4066-940D-6A3BB64996CB.jpg340E527A-0D99-475A-BC26-A8086942720A.jpg

Goals for 2018: Besides being the best mama I can possibly be to C, Id like to survive all of the out-of-state weddings and ttc#2 (honestly Im not sure I can achieve both of those goals but a girl can dream). I just received the promotion Ive been working so hard for, so that can be checked off my 2017 list!

What beautiful photos! I'm glad everybody had a good holiday season.

Lesonde, wonderful news about the promotion, and best of luck to everyone TTC this upcoming year ... hope it's a smooth journey and leads to healthy, happy pregnancies.

I'd like to lose my last 5-7 pounds to get down to pre-pregnancy weight and more importantly make exercising a regular habit. I'm also trying to slowly shift to more vegetarian/homecooked meals.

Christmas was good for us and flying with two kids wasn't as terrible as I was expecting. We had short connections both times (30-40 minutes) and it made things suspenseful, but we had just enough time to change diapers/use the restroom and then run on to the next plane. In a way it helped to not have to situate ourselves and keep the kids entertained in the airport, just jump from flight to flight and then land safely. Everyone was very nice to A.!

He's on the verge of six months. I think he's about doubled his birth weight, putting him at around 16.5 pounds. Still crawling, pulling up to standing, babble-talking. He loved meeting his older cousins and aunts and uncles. I'm feeling really content with our family lately.

I was totally gonna post, but then, you know, mom life. lol

This is what I posted on FB: "He's 16lbs 4oz (7390g) and 27.5in (70cm) long. That apparently means he's in about the 26th percentile for weight, but 85th percentile for height. And his head circumference is in about the same percentile as his height, so it looks like we have a long, lean little man on our hands at the moment. He seems to be enjoying the homemade purees I've made (carrots, peas, sweet potato, butternut squash), except for avocado. He's very good at rolling over, but not so good at remembering he doesn't enjoying being on his stomach. lol. He likes swimming, he's getting a lot better at grasping for things, but still needs to work on his napping. He's currently dealing with some seasonal, infant eczema, but a change in lotion and fewer baths should help with that."

In other news, we're looking into daycares. So far, I've only found 2 in the area that take 12 month olds. One is really nice, $1474/month, 1 caretaker for every 2 infants, but they only take 6 infants at a time. So, we're gonna put Alex in the wait list, but we wont hold our breath. The other is pretty alright, $1610/month, 3 caretakers for 10 infants, and they currently have 3 spots available in July. My mom was nit picking a bunch of stuff about the 2nd place, but BD and I don't see any major issues.

Just tonight was the 3rd time that we've DTD since Alex was born. We've used a condom every time and I still haven't gotten my period, but I took a pregnancy test the other day. It came back negative, but I don't feel 100% myself these days. Maybe I'll give it several days and take one again. We're not TTC yet, and it's probably just wishful thinking, but these things happen. lol

I know Gag asked this on the FB group, but I'll ask again on here: anyone already thinking about 1st BDay parties? I'm currently considering a Ninja Turtles theme. We'll have vanilla cupcakes, dyed green, with frosting in the 4 different colours. The nice thing about a summer BDay is you can probably do a BBQ, but having pizzas would go with the theme better. I dunno, we'll see.

Awww cute pics! Glad all is going well! If you really want the first place, be pushy. They more they know you want them the better it will be/more likely you will get o

A had his 6m yesterday. He’s still itty bitty. 16 lbs 2.4 oz and 24.75”. Got some allergy tests done as I suspect he is allergic to my dogs, and I would need to rehome them. Ex didn’t show and gave me some stupid bs excuse. Just over him

Pretty, your guy is so cute! So tall. What a handsome string-bean!

Dobby, our babies are similar in size. Good to have somebody else with a more petite baby so I feel less alone. I'm sorry your ex is still being terrible; I hope that situation gets better and easier.

My little A. is doing well. He's small ... about to drop off the charts for height. I spent a while feeling awful about it but I know I'm doing my best for him and he'll probably just be a shorter guy naturally. I've just embraced his size now that I know it's not anything I've done or can "fix."

He crawls like crazy now, just zooming around the house. He also pulls up to standing all the time and loves "walking" when we hold his hands. I think people are surprised by how mobile he is, especially since he looks a little younger than he really is. I am feeling the crunch of not having as much free time and I get touched out easily ... DH is a great parent but A. prefers me. I'm just trying to enjoy these baby days.
