Oh man.. I'm so glad I can be a stay at home mom its got to be hard leaving your baby. I can't imagine =( I'm only now starting to be ok-ish with being separated from my son for more than a couple hours. Emery on the other hand, so not ready to leave her for the day (and especially not over night)

I was just thinking today that I really need to go back to school and finish college. I want to be a social worker. I want to either do adoption cases working with teen parents or a cps worker. Preferably the 1st but I don't think there are any adoption agencies near me =/ It takes a masters degree in social work..so thats another 3-5 years of school. (going to try doing summer and winter classes too to make it a little quicker

Aww cute We're still waiting to get more pictures done, we didn't get to finish when we went in last time, we ran out of time but I told the lady I didn't think we took many pictures at all so we're going back on wednesday for more.

We actually are just getting over sickness, we all have colds and my son even got croup (same as laryngitis in adults) seems much better now though. Though I have barely had any sleep lately due to being sick myself, Spencer being SUPER clingly the first few days of his sickness and (I can't believe this is happening already) Emery is teething! Nothing poking through yet but she's got the classic signs. Especially chewing her fist and drooling buckets. My little baby used to sleep like an angel, now she wants to be rocked to sleep and is super sensitive to sounds for the first few minutes. Teething tablets help the drooling but doesn't seem to help with the pain for her. Tylenol helps though.

Well now since most of the kiddos are nearing 4 months old is anyone going to start solids yet? I know some prefer to wait till 6 months. We're already doing rice cereal and thinking about starting solids in another week or 2. My son started solids shortly before turning 4 months as well. He'd eat the whole jar even. Didn't hurt him, didn't even effect my milk supply . He was more than ready for it, actually got to stage 3 foods by 7 months and he weaned himself off the jar foods by 8 months.

Emery doesn't seem quite as ready as he was back then but pretty close. Like with her cereal, she wants it (only if its slightly sweetened with juice, she won't take it any other way) but still spits some out lol so I think we'll give it a try with the jars soon and see how it goes, if we need to wait a bit longer I'll try the wait another 4 days and try again approach.

Just curious to see what everyone else is planning on I was actually reading an atricle that stated starting solids before 4 months may actually reduce the risk of certain food allergies (not cause them) especially if they run in the family. Particularly penut allergies. Seemed interesting to me.

I'll be waiting until at least 6 months for solids. I am goin to make my own food and no rice cereals or pablum will be given to her. You know what they say "solids before one are just for fun!" My family has no food allergies so I am not concerned. Avah will be 15 weeks on Sunday. Time flies. She seems to be teething as well, but she's not in pain and she's a great sleeper. Only wakes once through the night usually. I love her to bits. She loves standing and she loves to be rocked as well. The majority of her day is spent in someone's arms, whether it be mine, my husbands, or my moms...She sleeps with me in bed but naps on the couch or wherever I am and sleeps fine. Here she is the other day, my mom was holding her to look out the window.

aww all these cute baby pictures

Jac - Emery loves standing too! So did my son and he started walking at 8 months. So be prepared, you too may have an early walker in the making lol. Emery usually sleeps great but teething is disturbing the sleep but the tylenol helped a lot. I don't want to give her that too much though, only if she really needs it.

Kind of wondering how tonight will go..My son didn't have a nap but fell asleep early..like 2 hours early =/ may regret this later. About to wake up Emery. I don't like waking her but she's been asleep for a while and my boobs are hurting haha

Emery has been trying soooo hard to crawl lately. She's got all the movements down but can't figure out how to put them all together yet (and I wouldn't expect her to at this point anyway) but she's learned how to scoot. She gets her knees up under her while her head is on the ground (she uses it as a weight) then she pushes off lol I don't know whether I should consider that smart or lazy LOL. (maybe a bit of both). Super cute though

Looks like all the kiddos are doing well, how are all you mommas doing?

I'm ok for the most part. Hoping we get to go to Utah to see my hubbys family but it depends on if he gets any time off for the summer.. His nursing program is going well but it will be 22 straight months, no big summer or winter vacations. I actually get to see him more than we expected though. This semester he has mondays off (which works great with his work schedule since he works nights all weekend, he gets monday to recover) then Tuesday-Friday he has classes. Time varies but its not too bad. Just waiting for him to get an actual calendar. I'm thinking IF he gets any time off it will be between semesters so we'd have to go to utah in either May or October. (It would probably be May if those are our only options) We're hoping he gets some time in July though (even if its just a few days) His Grandmother's birthday is July 2nd so we'd like to be there for that and the 4th of July. His cousin is also getting married in July but not sure what date. If its around then we'd love to be there for that too.. just have to see how it all goes!

Hope everyone else is well!
