That's awesome, Tess! I hope it sticks!

Valentine has been waking four or five times a night recently, I think. I haven't really been counting and it's not really consistent. Last night was her second night in the Pack N Play, though, and she did really well! She slept about six hours in the PNP and after nursing once she went right back to sleep until we got up a few hours later. Hopefully once she's adjusted she enjoys the extra room.

Yeh fingers crossed it makes a difference! Little sleep with a baby is hard enough but also having toddler to run about after is exhausting lol x

So after going from sleeping to not sleeping to sleeping... Zack is once again not sleeping 😭 itís only been 2 nights but itís driving me crazy. Past 2 nights he has been awake for 2 hours in the night between roughly 3 and 5. He isnít awake for any particular reason. He doesnít want a feed because Iíve tried giving him it n he just takes a little then pushes it away. He doesnít even cry that much but instead just does a constant little moaning noises itís like he thinks itís morning n it takes him 2 hours to decide to go back to sleep 😭 donít know what to do with him x

My baby is 5 months old today! Where did the time go???

How are all the babies? Val is not quite rolling, not quite sitting, probably because she's so big - there's a lot of her to coordinate. She's such a happy girl, though, we have a lot of fun with her. We should be starting solids in about a month, I'm looking forward to it!

Chicago - when was your due date again. It cracks me up how much "older" Chloe is than V.. even though I think gestationally speaking they're pretty close.

Chloe's not quite sitting too. I sort of think she's on the other side of the spectrum in that she's so long and lean that she can't hold herself up! She's getting close.. but not quite. Same with rolling - she can roll up onto her side, but hasn't mastered the down flop yet. haha

She's such a happy baby. It's bizarre how happy she is all the time. We offer her purees somewhat regularly now. Some days she'll eat half a bottle and others she wants absolutely nothing to do with them. A babe that knows what she wants!

She's had a bit of a cough since basically December that I would love to see go away, but other than that we've so far survived the winter sick season relatively unscathed. Fx we get through these next few months and then we can all open our doors and windows to get some fresh air in. These January - April months are the hardest for me.. I'm ready for May to roll in!

She was due September 5. I guess she just likes to take her time

We're in the same exact rolling situation, she gets so close and just can't get the shoulders twisted.

I am SO ready for winter to be done! I'm not a germophobe at all, usually I'm the exact opposite, but this flu season has me worried. We have such cabin fever and poor Teddy really needs to get out and play. I think we're just going to have to gamble a little so I don't get eaten alive.

I took a photo of her next to a newborn sleeper. It's hard to believe this was ever too big for her.

I know crazy how time flies... just about five months here too. He rolled a few times last week but not since. Doesn’t seem all that interested in trying to move himself around. Funny how different they can be, my first was crawling at 5.5 months but that won’t happen for this one for quite a long time still. At this rate we won’t be starting solids for awhile, not sure he will be sitting up unaided by 6 months. We’ll see. Omg, I can’t even stand how much I love him. He’s so sweet, so happy. Laughs and smiles all the time. Polar opposite from my first. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a love bug too, just more demanding and not as easy going as this baby. Thank god though, because if I had another colicky baby on top of a spirited toddler I’d probably be pulling my hair out. Balancing the two is hard enough.

We are away skiing now. Geesh, schleping all the equipment, carrying the baby and taking turns teaching our toddler to ski, is infinitely more challenging than any double black ive ever skied. But its fun and worth it and I’m glad we did it.

So glad to hear the babies are doing good 😊 awww Chicago sheís gorgeous! She is a big girl eh haha!

Zack is 5 months on the 29th and he has been sitting up unaided for 3 weeks now. He still has his wobbles but heís really good at it. No rolling yet though. Same with u ladies, gets onto his side then doesnít know what to do lol.

Oh that sounds fun ging! We have a family holiday in the sun coming up in May. Canít wait. See I have the opposite this time. My first was so easy going and independent whereas although Zack is a really happy baby, he is very clingy so he is only really happy if I am near by lol. He also doesnít like someone else holding him if I am in the room and he can see me. He will just look at me crying until I go and take him then he instantly stops. Itís really demanding. We are still struggling with night time sleeping too which is hard! He is in his own room now because he outgrew his crib and his big cot doesnít fit in my room so last night I ran back and forward to his room about 8 times through the night to give him his dummy and eventually I had to give him a bottle. I try not to feed him if I can help it because sometimes I can settle him without it and I donít want him being reliant on it when he slept right through from 7-18 weeks without a night time bottle but sometimes I just have no option x
