Oh Wicky that sounds really stressful getting the tongue tie fixed and stuff. GL getting it all sorted out.

We’re all good over here, got a perfectly happy and healthy bubba. He weighed in a 14lbs 4oz at his last weight check a couple of weeks ago. He’s a big chunky boy now.

Honestly I’m having more issues with ODS. He’s just bored brainless with the holidays and not having all his friends to play with. I’m only 1 mama and I’m exhausted. I’ve bought him some crafty things for us to sit and do together while Ryan sleeps or DH has him so me and ODS can have some 1 on 1 time. Hopefully that helps. Otherwise I’m just white knuckling it until September haha.

Thanks. Siler has been great yesterday! Stuck to routine, minimal crying, and was a perfect angel at family dinner last night out. He slept 7 hours and fell asleep on my chest (something he hasn't done since a newborn), without my shushing or rocking him. Gosh, I hope he does this more!

Think he's in a growth spurt: dude slept 7 hours, then almost a 3 hour morning nap, and has been snoozing for another 2.5...as long as he's not sick or crying, he can sleep all he wants, ha! I can get stuff done. My milk supply dipped and I got so scared but now it's back to over 40 ounces in the fridge.

Does her tongue-tie require surgery? Our pediatrician snipped it in 2 seconds, but my niece had to actually have it cut in via her neck. Yikes...

Thankfully, M's tongue-tie can be released using a laser to cut it, so nothing as major as your niece! I just wish they had done it when it was first diagnosed, and not taken the "wait and see" approach. More nerve-wracking for me, but I guess it's all the same to the baby...

Good luck.

Major growth spurt over here He gained 10 ounces in 4 days! Still only 13.2 though at almost 13 weeks. Took him up to my job today and he smiled at everyone! Only fussed a little, snoozed in my arms, and cried at the end (almost 4 hours later), even though routine was off.

He really is becoming more fun and coming into his own....this is much better than the newborn stage to me!

Chel I’m with you. I far prefer everything over the 3 month stage.
Before that it’s so draining and you don’t really get anything back because they can’t smile or interact.

I’m getting to my fav stage with Ryan. Once he starts laughing and giggling it’s perfect. That’s the stage I always want to freeze forever.

Draining is a great word for it. I was getting the blues.
Now he will lie in the swing or playpen for awhile on his own.
The crying is less, less intense, and not as loud, rofl.

He smiles all the time! I love it. Hubs got a real laugh but I'm still waiting.
If only we can do more than 20 minute naps.
Morning nap is at least 2 hours, then they get less as the day wears on.

At least he's moving his bedtime up himself and sleeping 7-8 hours through. I've even stopped bringing milk upstairs at night!

My favourite stage was definitely 9-12 months. But I’m enjoying every stage moreso with #3 than I did with my other 2... maybe due to it possibly being our last. Or maybe because she’s just a good baba!!

So in a post-partum funk, and my cry for help, I whacked off my hair, like 8 inches. With house scissors...hubs was mortified but it gave a talk about me getting OUT of the house without baby! Hairdresser did blue highlights for fun (I'm so not a colored hair girl) and gave a cute stacked long bob.

Siler sleeping roughly 9 hours a night! And he's falling asleep better on his own for naps. I let him cry a minute and re-try pacifier and he goes right out. He's too heavy to hold and swing/shoosh anymore, lol.

I prefer the 3-6 months stage. They stay where you put them
But DH found some old video of ODS when he was 2 and it was great watching little toddler him. Makes me super excited for all the stages Ryan is gunna go through. I’m trying to enjoy every bit because it’s the last time.

Chel, I cut half my hair off after I had Ryan. I felt better for it too. I hate my short hair currently because it’s on my neck and I hate that. But once it grows out a little more I’ll be happy. If only it would stop coming out in clumps atm.
I’m glad you like your new hair tho! It can be hard to refind “you” after your first baby.

Ryan is getting interested in the tv a bit now. He likes watching YouTube vids with me as well. We found a baby tv channel for him to sit an enjoy for a little while. I think they just like the lights and sounds at this age.

Is anyone else really excited for Christmas? ODS was 3 weeks old at his first Christmas. So he just slept. But Ryan will be 7 months old and I’m so excited for him to see the tree and the lights and open his presents and stuff.
I detest Christmas for various reasons. But I put on a brave face for ODS and now Ryan. But I am kind of excited for this one.

Btw, what does one do with a baby a Christmas? ODS was 3 weeks and then a yr old. I have no idea how to Christmas with a real baby

As soon as the fall hits I get impatient for Christmas. I love it. Favourite time of year. I wouldn’t worry too much about a 7 month old, he still won’t really get it so presents and such aren’t a big deal. But you’ve got to wrap something up because your older son will be excited to help Ryan experience it . 7 months you might do some baby snacks and a new baby toy and some Jammie’s and a book

We’ve got school starting, thanksgiving, and Halloween to get through before Christmas and I’m excited for all of those too!
