So many cool updates! So glad everyone's little ones are thriving and healthy.

A. is eight months tomorrow. He's been eating a lot of puree lately, and we've branched out to eggs and avocado. He also eats little cereal bits. We try to balance out proteins, grains, fruits, etc., but I haven't been brave enough to try other solid foods yet. He still nurses a ton. I haven't weighed him or measured him in a while. Sometimes he can wear 9-month clothes, sometimes he can still just squish into 3-month! It's crazy how much the brands vary. He fits best in 6-month still, I think.

I have realized that A. is a little more high-strung and clingy than my older son. He's had trouble napping without me in the bed, so I've lost some good alone time/work time. I'm hoping this stage ends soon. He's getting good at cruising and can stand with just one hand for support. I had a dream of him walking at eight months because I had a friend whose daughter walked at eight months and I was so impressed, but I think she'll probably keep that record!

A’s is a week from Friday. I can’t believe it. Doing my in/out picture on Sunday since he’ll be 38w2d.

He’s been in his helmet for a week and it’s already starting to correct his flat side.

He’s just a hilarious love bug. He was in the hospital with pneumonia for a week a couple weeks ago. A few of my coworkers had it as well. That was really hard on all fronts. He hasn’t seen his dad since then because he just doesn’t schedule his visitation or pay his child support. Just tired of the paperwork and the abuse and court. Like how has it been a court hearing every month for 5 months and nothing is done?! Whatever I feel like I see the end of the tunnel

Oh no @ the pneumonia. Glad he's doing better. And it sucks that his dad is still a piece of human garbage. Here's hoping things get resolved soon and you can move on with your life.

So, Alex is getting better at pulling up on BD and me, but he'll only stand holding onto a couch or table if we put him there first. He doesn't crawl; just does the army pull thing. I read recently that 15% of babies never crawl and it shouldn't be considered an official milestone, so that makes me feel a little better. Still terrible at taking naps. These days I try to take him for a walk during his first "nap time" (noon-ish) and he'll usually pass out in the stroller. Or I'll lay him in his swing after he's fallen asleep and pray he'll stay out for like 30 mins.

My mom just took off to Japan for 3 weeks and he was a fussy pants all day. He had a bit of a fever for a couple nights, but that seems to be all better. He's been refusing food here and there and is clingy af. If he can't see me, he squeals. Oh well, when he's a teenager and telling me he hates me, I'll just look back on these times and remember when he couldn't get enough of me. lol

I just turned 30 last week, and now that my BDay is over, it's time to start planning his. I'm like 80% sure I wanna have a beach/splish splash theme for him. One of the perks of having a summer BDay. I just hope the weather cooperates. And I wanna at least make his smash cake. I made my own BDay cake and I think it turned out well. lol

Yeah it sucks but just 42 more school days and I can keep him home and away from daycare germs

Funny cake. Happy belated birthday! I’m also thinking a smash cakes. Right now his theme is Pokémon but only because Black Panther was a non option, though I may have them do avengers and just bring black panther stuff. Idk but definitely going smash pictures and a smash cake. Just annoying because i’ll Need an adult cake, a smash cake, and a baby cake. To each their own, but i can’t give A regular cake

A has hit yhat clingy stage too and I love it for just that reason but it is so exhausting hah. He’s pretty average with milestones. The only thing i’m elated about is he is really getting his book handling skills down. He holds the book and helps me turn the pages, and he was flipping through a book at daycare. So the teacher in me is like go boo go! But he has this odd draw to my phone and iPad though I never let him use it. It’s Weird

Pretty Alex is adorable!!! Heis mobility will probably take off soon. V started rolling around, then army crawl, then full on crawling. Pulling herself up and doing a small bit of cruising. It too her forever to roll belly to back though. They all go their own pace but true some skip crawling.


Happy belated birthday!! Mine was Friday the 13th (last week) and I also turned 30

Dobby I need to start getting her party stuff! Almost a month away for me.

V is doing great! Well other than being sick right now but she hardly acts sick. She is so tall! I have a feeling she'll be taller than me. I'm like 5'8" or 9".

Life is going well. I'm going from part time to full time but will be an educator at my work. No more nights or holidays so excited aboit this opportunity!

A had his 9 month. Nothing much. He’s bounced back from his weight loss and is 18lbs, so back up to 22nd percentile. His length is 28 in but I think she measured wrong because that’s a huge growth spurt but he is in 12m pants now so maybe. Ex didn’t show and didn’t respond to my email. He also tried to threaten to take custody away on Tuesday yet ko and behold he never scheduled a visit today making weekend 5. Such a tool.
