    Quinn hit 6 weeks today. VERY fussy today for some reason. She sleeps 3-4 hour stretches at night. Though last week she did a 5 hour stretch and I would love that again.

    Oh wow Lyndzo those are beautiful pictures! What a sweet little girl you have :)

    We've been so busy! Having two little ones is wearing me out!! Emmett is still cranky in the evenings...it starts about 4 or 5 and lasts until bedtime. The good news is that he's starting to go to bed earlier, around 9 or 9:30. Otherwise he's doing really well. He's over 14lbs and aside from the evenings is really happy.

    Hope everyone is doing well! Great to see pictures :)

    Awwwwwwwwww she is soooo cute!!! I want some but I don't think I can afford it!

    Jaxson slept through the night 9pm till 6.30am 2nights ago. I was awake just watching him, checking he was breathing, in disbelief that he could sleep that long! But then last night he woke up twice and was really unsettled :shrug:

    But he did it once so he is capable so I remain positive that it's only a matter of time before he does it most nights

    Emmy that's amazing! The longest stretch we've had so far is 7hrs...maybe 8, I can't remember...it was a few weeks ago. Right now Emmett is up for his feed anywhere from 2 to 4am and then up for the day around 7, so not too bad!

    Wow great sleep stretches! I'm jealous!

    Quinn ate at 10:30pm last night and fell asleep at 11, woke up at 4:15am. That's our longest stretch yet! She's 7w today, she's getting more "chatty" and lots of smiles. I think she's definitely in a growth spurt.

    We are doing good. Jaxson is very smiley at the moment and making so much noise like he is talking to us, I'm loving it! He is almost 10 weeks, he turns double figures on Wednesday! Crazy how quickly it's gone! Sleep is still going well, he did another all nighter last week 8pm till 6am. Every other night he wakes up between 2-4 for a feed. After that feed his sleep is a lot more unsettled, he stays asleep but makes loads of noises and moves around a lot. Anyone else's do that? Keeps us awake!

    I see we all have pretty much gotten too busy for forums (babies have a way of doing that to you haha), but just wanted to drop in and say hi to everyone! All of your babies are absolutely adorable! <3 I will share some pics of miss Hayley. She is now 8 and a half months old, 11lbs 7.5oz, and close to sitting unsupported and will be on the move before I know it I'm sure! She is an absolute joy and I love her SO much and being her mommy is the absolute best <3 <3 Hope you all are doing well :)

    Quinn turned 5 months this past Sunday. She is such a good girl, she sleeps so well and she loves food! There's hardly anything she doesn't like yet.

    She sits up really well and loves to shift around on the floor, rather than rolling. She's a very happy baby! :)

    Wow marks wife!!! I hardly recognised her! What a big girl! Brilliant that she is doing so well! And such a cutie xx

    Lyndzo such a cutie xx

    Jaxson is 5 months 2 weeks old. He weighs a shocking 20lbs he is huuuuuuuge and breaking my back lol but I love him. He has just learnt to blow raspberries, say ma ma ma ma, roll one way and sit unaided for a few moments before falling backwards. We have just started weaning too which is lots of fun! Plus he is a paid model now :coolio:

    Aw thanks ladies <3 <3 OMGosh your babies are too cute! Love seeing updates on all of the rainbows <3 They are all getting so big!

    Hayley has pretty much gotten the whole sitting unsupported down over the past few days. She sits up without help for the longest time. Once in awhile she'll fall sideways or backward (mostly when she stretches out her legs to stand up, which she LOVES to do, lol, but she, of course, needs help to do that so she falls backward) but not very often.

    Oh my gosh, Jaxson is SO cute! 20lbs wow!

    Quinn is about 16lbs, 24.5" long. She was 15lb 6.6oz 10 days ago, I took advantage of a vet visit and plunked her on the scale haha!

    Yeah he is a big boy, he weighed 16lbs when he was only 14weeks old lol he is in the 90 something percentile. He is pretty tall aswell so that must have something to do with it.

    I saw a friend who has a little girl who is 10 months and i held her and she was sooooo light compared to Jaxson. She only weighed 16lbs at 10 months!! But her mum is tiny, she is only 4 foot 10 so I think she must take after her.

    I miss my baby and bump family :hugs:

    Wow I can't imagine a 20lb 5 month old! What a tank! <3 Maybe he'll be a linebacker one day? He sure is a cutie <3

    Hayley is 12 lbs at almost 9 months, haha. :p But then she was suuuuper tiny when she was born, born early, and a month behind in growth, so overall she's doing great for the start she had :) Love my petite little princess <3

    She is doing amazingly well!! And she will catch up I'm sure!! There is a little girl in my nursery who was born at 23 weeks and she is petite sort of still wearing 2 year clothes at 4 but apart from that oh boy she is just as loud as all the others! Right little bossy boots she is lol and was a bit unsure of the playground at first but I think that was a lot to do with her parents wrapping her up in cotton wool! She gets stuck in and runs around boisterous like all the others now!

    Gosh it seems I would have updated way before this but I swear running a business and then new baby and now toddler I have not had time to even post I think it's because things have finally settled, business is no longer needing me 24 hours a day and we are thinking about adding number 2!

    Anyway, I was apart of this thread not as active as some but still around, wanted to post McKenzie's picture when she was 19 days old. She was born Jan 24th at 12:04am by c-section turned EMC. I was having labor pains but nothing serious I lost my mucas plug Thursday morning was up all night was told to come to the hospital as I was scheduled for a c-section because she was breech from 33 weeks on. Thursday I got up started moving around a labor stopped so I went into the office instead of the hospital was checked around 12 not even a cm dilated, so they gave me the option of waiting until the scheduled c section tomorrow or head to the hospital, I choose to wait (not smart).

    Later that evening during a last baby free dinner with my parents labor started again and it was back with vengeance. Got home got settled even tried a small glass of wine helped for a hour but then labor was back so at this point I had been up 48 hours almost so I was not going for another all night labor session, got up to get dressed and my water broke (huge issue when you have a breech baby). My poor BF almost wouldn't let me change he wanted me at the hospital right then, I think we made it in record time.

    We got the hospital at 11 and I was admitted, prepped and in the surgery room quick I was exhausted and ready for a baby and a good nights sleep. She was born still on her planned c-section day, she had a little problem breathing at first because it took them longer to get her out because her head was so far up in my ribs. She weighed 8 lbs 6 oz and was 18.5 inches long. I was up the next day walking around at 8 am from the c-section, did y laps around the nurses station to get the horrid leg pumps off and only took the hard core drugs that morning they made me so out of it that I then stuck to the ibuprofen extra strength after that. McKenize had a slight infection they were watching so she ended up staying a week in the NICU because of it I was discharged the following Monday and she came home that following Friday.
