    1. Baby's stats: Age, Weight, etc.

    He is 3 months on Saturday and we go to the pedi on Friday, but I weigh him at home and subtract my weight and he's at about 12.5lbs.

    2. Baby's milestones

    He rolls both directions now, although I have only seen him roll back to front 3 times. He also grabs everything and puts it in his mouth. Not sure that's a milestone.

    3. What size clothes is baby wearing?

    He still fits in the carters 3 months but they are tight. Anything that is 0-3 month has been packed away. He has some that are 3-6 month that fit perfectly. And there are some random 6 month clothes that fit him too.

    4. Do you put socks and/or shoes on your baby?

    I never did until he started daycare and now I put socks on him everyday. We received like 15 pairs of baby shoes and I'm thinking they will never get used. I even tried one day and couldn't easily get them on and was like this is pointless.

    5. Do you put pants/dresses on your baby?

    Nope. I don't understand baby pants. If his legs seem cold, I use baby legs, that way I can still change his dipe without all the hoopla

    6. Baby's favorite toy

    He likes different ones each day. He has some hanging rings that he just loves. And recently MIL got him a sofie giraffe that he likes to munch on. But lately he loves his lamaze caterpillar, DH says he manhandles it. He squeezes it like he is giving it a hug and he munches on the caterpillar legs too.

    7. What is one thing that your DH is doing these days that drives you nuts?

    He has to ask before doing anything with the baby. Like if he should put a cloth or disposable diaper on. I don't care, just do it. And since I have been back at work, I have asked him to wake up earlier and start helping me with the baby. And his idea of helping is sitting on the floor playing with him. Cute I know, but how bout changing a diaper, giving him his medicine, dressing him, or packing his bags. Ugh.

    8. What is DH best at helping with?

    Since I started back at work, I am putting the baby to bed (which takes forever) and DH cooks dinner, does the dishes and takes out the trash. I guess I shouldn't complain about my morning routine then.

    9. Do you still take a prenatal vitamin?

    Yes. Also taking Lecithin supplements for clogged ducts (I'm prone to them) and a probiotic.

    10. Has AF returned yet?

    No, and I am fearing her return.

    11. Latest mommy brain moment?

    Well I have lots of them. The biggest one was a couple of weeks ago when I took Henry to a restaurant and changed his diaper and then he peed all over himself mid-change and I didn't bring a change of clothes. I had to bring a nakey baby out into the restaurant and my dad called him a hillbilly baby. Hahaha.

    12. Any plans for the month of August?

    Try to get some sleep and save my sanity. Seriously. Oh and a couple family birthday parties this weekend.

    13. When is your next day off or day to spend with the entire family, minus the weekends?

    Labor day and it can't come fast enough. Although I did take this Friday off for Henry's vaccinations, but its just me and the little guy. I miss my hubby so much. I feel like we never see each other anymore.

    14. Last movie you saw and was it good?

    We rented promiseland. Pretty boring. I'm looking to add to my netflix queue, so suggestions are welcome here.

    15. What is your favorite quick dinner?

    Pasta, its my go-to quick meal. And I'm never bored with it, because there are so many different things you can do with it. It also really fills me up and I'm hungry ALL the time. I'm losing weight like crazy over here. I ate 3 bowls of pasta last night and didn't gain anything. Nursing man... its like running a marathon. But its kind of nice that I fit into pants that haven't fit in a few years. I'm about 3lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight. Shirts on the other hand, well I need to go shopping, I went from a B-C cup to D-DD cup. All my tighter fitting shirts are now too short because of the boobage.

    1. Baby's stats: Age, Weight, etc.

    4 mos. 17lbs 10oz, 26 in

    2. Baby's milestones

    No real big ones that are new. She rolls over but has been for awhile. She's been sleeping in her crib which is new but not a milestone really

    3. What size clothes is baby wearing?

    6 mos but prob will need 9 soon

    4. Do you put socks and/or shoes on your baby?

    No to either. Far too hot for socks and I have a bin of shoes for babies but neither DD or Rylee wore them

    5. Do you put pants/dresses on your baby?

    Right now for summer she wears a lot of romper like outfits. Dresses sometimes. When it gets cooler she will wear pants

    6. Baby's favorite toy

    She likes playing with her rings... Eating them mostly

    7. What is one thing that your DH is doing these days that drives you nuts?

    Nothing really. We make a really good team with stuff. He loses his temper with DD a lot because he doesn't remember she is only three.

    8. What is DH best at helping with?

    Everything. He helps around the house and with the girls all the time. Lately he has been doing dinner and stuff so I can go take spin and fitness classes. We just had our 9 yr anniversary and every day he makes me know that it was the best choice ever to make a life with him.

    9. Do you still take a prental vitamin?

    No. My hairdresser told me since I am not nursing to stop since it is part of the reason my hair comes out in clumps after pregnancy. Happened with DD too and it's gross.

    10. Has AF returned yet?

    Yes

    11. Latest mommy brain moment?

    None that I can think of. Sometimes I open the car door DD to get in then go around and put Rylee in band I will get in the front and DD reminds me I forgot to buckle her in lol

    12. Any plans for the month of August?

    We are going to the beach for a week. I hope it is nice weather. Then I go back to work the very end. We also may take DD to this amusement park place called storyland that she's been dying to go to.

    13. When is your next day off or day to spend with the entire family, minus the weekends?

    All days off until the last we'd of aug. it's been bust this week and next because DD has ill camps she is doing so running around.

    14. Last movie you saw and was it good?

    Have not seen movies in awhile. Been more tv focused lately. Just watched first season of scandal on Netflix and loved it

    15. What is your favorite quick dinner?

    I like a lot of dinners in the crock pot that I prepare the night before or in the morning. The other night I made a delicious pork tenderloin!

    6. Baby's favorite toy Lamaze Dragonfly

    7. What is one thing that your DH is doing these days that drives you nuts? Being busy during bedtimes because that means I usually have to listen to a screaming hungry baby while I get the kids in bed. He is either taking a shower, mowing the lawn, on the pot, etc. etc. It's not normally his fault but geez it's annoying.

    8. What is DH best at helping with? Usually, bedtimes! It takes me 45 min - 1 hour to feed Judah before he goes to bed so nowadays he almost totally gets the kids in bed.

    10. Has AF returned yet? No and it probably won't until I wean off my lactation drug.

    12. Any plans for the month of August? DS starts Kindergarten on the 12th which will be a huge change in our schedule. We *may* do some camping for Labor Day, not sure though. DH's birthday is also on the 30th.

    13. When is your next day off or day to spend with the entire family, minus the weekends? DH just took off last Friday to spend with his parents and sister who were here for the weekend. He will also take off this Friday morning for DS's orientation.

    14. Last movie you saw and was it good? Despicable Me; we watched it with the ILs because they love it. It was cute!

    15. What is your favorite quick dinner? Crock pot rotisserie chicken - SO easy. Just stick the whole chicken in the crock pot on top of balls of foil and let it cook for a few hours - voila! it's your main dish!

    ---She is just starting to be able to sit up on her own. She will also scoot herself when she is doing tummy time.

    3. What size clothes is baby wearing?

    7. What is one thing that your DH is doing these days that drives you nuts?

    ---The only thing he ever really does that drives me insane is he plays a computer game and a couple nights a week are "game nights" He is already gone from 8am until almost 7pm working, so his game nights make me feel like a single parent. But, he doesn't go out with his buddies and he doesn't drink hardly at all, so...i'll give him this even though I HATE it.

    8. What is DH best at helping with?

    ---When I can get him home long enough to help with anything, he is great at whatever I ask of him.

    9. Do you still take a prental vitamin?

    ---No and I was really bad about taking it while pregnant too.

    10. Has AF returned yet?

    ---Yep

    12. Any plans for the month of August?

    ---Back to school for the kids!!!!!!! My step son also turns 14 on the 17th but other than that just making it through each day.

    ---Every day since i'm not working at the moment.

    14. Last movie you saw and was it good?

    ---Yeah, can't remember the last time I was able to sit down long enough to finish a show let alone a movie. Ha!

    15. What is your favorite quick dinner?

    ---Chinese take-out if we have the extra money. Or Spaghetti(I used to make my own sauce but when DH lost his job we had to cut down on groceries as much as possible and that was one of the things to go so we just use the jar sauce now. Feeding a teenage boy is insane!

    Jill, my hubby does computer games too. He has in the past done WoW and LOTRO and Diablo. He now does Torchlight and Guild Wars. Lately though our computer has been on the fritz so he hasn't been able to and it's great lol! HE also has game days where he plays a tabletop game online with webcams that lasts from like 12-5 on Saturdays.

    Vicki-my hubby does WoW...I have to say I hate the game. LOL Well wait maybe it's not necessarily the game I hate, it's the amount of time he plays that I hate especially after he has been gone all day at work and then i'm still the one doing everything with and for the kids on his game nights. Yes I get that right now i'm able to be home with the kids and not working my butt off like I was before Kylie was born, but it would be nice to not feel like a single parent 3 nights a week. But like I said, he doesn't go out. He goes to work, school, and home with us, so i'll give him his game time. Even though I do complain about it. Haha!

    I feel ya! I feel like he's not around at all when he plays those games.
    I used to play too but I just find I don't have the time to do it nowadays.
