thanks ladies!!!

it has been a whirlwind!!!
i went into labor Friday morning... i was like, this can't be it!!! i had a full weekend planned and even a brunch a few hours later was supposed to have with some girl friends.
I got to the hospital and was at a 4. Had to decide fast if i wanted another VBAC or another c-sec. lots of tears and decided to stick to the plan. part of me wonders if it would have been a fast birth vaginally, but it doesn't matter now. he is here and is great!!!! love him so much! but wow am i tired!!! i forgot newborn nights, so tiring!!!!
he was 9lb9oz and 21inches!

THats brilliant Juliet! Glad you could stick to your plan, especially as he was quite a big baby bless him, Caleb was 8.15 but didn’t feel much different than giving birth to Madeleine at 8.2

Calebs weight gain is slow, couple weeks ago he put on half an oz in one week, the next week 1oz, last week the health visitor said he had put on 4oz but I didn’t have his record book with him as I stupidly took Madeleines and think she worked it out wrong and it was actually another 1oz gain
They advised to wake him 3 hourly at night as think it could be as he was sleeping 5-7 hours at night even though he doesn’t stop feeding before and after that and all day long! If no better weight gain this tues (they want to see 6oz in the last 2 weeks) then I will top up with one bottle of formula a day and see how that goes
Apart from that we’re doing good

How is everyone else?

aw poor peanut! If he's eating a lot he's probably just using it as fuel - is he growing taller quickly or wiggling a lot? I hope your next appt is positive!

things are great here! DH goes back to work next Monday and we put the boys in daycare. Another new routine to get used to but this should be the last adjustment for some time. We have their 4 month appt in a couple of weeks, on 5/16. I think they are weighing in at around 12lbs for M, 14.5 or so for T. They are both talking up a storm now, I love it. The little squeals just fill the whole house, it's amazing. Both have grown out of the infant inserts in the car seats, moved up diaper sizes (almost 2 for both!)...it's cool to see the development but I am ruing the day that my snuggles no longer put them to sleep.
Oh and T has his first (and hopefully only) PT appointment this Thurs for potential torticollis. He's been doing a LOT better and his flat spot seems to have evened out quite a bit so hopefully the therapist will think he's ok and doesn't need PT.

how's everyone else?

Hi wish glad to hear you and the boys are well and happy mother’s day for yesterday! Such a special one for you all

We’re all good, Caleb now has 2/3 4oz bottles of formula a day to top him up as is o the second centile and was on the 50th when born, he still breastfeeds just as much so has t really given me a break in that way lol
Apart from that he’s doing great, very happy and smiley

Madeleine loves him to bits and is never far from his side which is very cute

I hope everyone is well

so good to hear from you, star! I'm so glad all is going well. That's quite a weight loss, no? Though sometimes it's just a matter of ounces, I think. Timothy and Malcolm were off of each other's height by an inch or less and one was in the 15th %ile and the other was in the 60th. Weird.

The boys are great!! They started daycare a couple of weeks ago and besides the first day, they love it. We just got their school pictures which were taken their first day and little Timothy's picture has a little tear on his cheek . But they've never cried when we've dropped them off which is GREAT for my sanity. So it made things really easy. Other than that, they've been a bit more sniffly and have a cough but I guess that's to be expected for basically the next 2 yrs!
We are attempting sleep training as well now, just started last night. Malcolm was a champ but T needed a bit of comforting still. They are 4 months old today! Next doc appt is tomorrow and they have shots again
I think that's really it - they both babble and coo like crazy. Malcolm sounds like a little dove and then growls, it's hysterical. And Daddy is just the funniest, he can get an actual giggle out of him.

juliet - I'm tired just thinking about 4 kids!! that's so wonderful that you're feeling settled and happy. I love it!

The boys are 4 months old now and I can say I absolutely love this phase. For now, at least, we're done with daily meltdowns, nightly meltdowns - they are quite rare and we tend to know why they are happening and can work them out. Mostly, they are smiling, laughing, babbling, cooing crazy men. They make us laugh so much and probably b/c they are not yet rolling, they still aren't mobile or much to worry about so I can leave them babbling under their play gym or on their boppy or in their swing and go do dishes or laundry or something (always checking in - I'm not negligent!). They both mostly sleep through the night except for usually one bottle/diaper change. They are mostly putting themselves back to sleep, which is AWESOME. So everyone is getting sleep, everyone is calm and happy. Ahhhhhhhh! (KNOCK ON WOOD! )

would love to hear from everyone else too!
