    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc
    Henry, 8 weeks 2 days, last weight at 6.5 weeks was 10 oz
    2) Latest milestones
    He grabs his rings on his playmat and it makes him so happy. He also leans his upper body forward in his bouncey seat
    3) Baby is happiest when.....?
    When he has had good naps
    4) Baby is saddest when......?
    Unfortunately lately is has been after eating. But his reflux is worse if he hasn't napped.
    5) Are you exercising?
    I just started doing some crunches and plank poses. Only like 10 minutes a day. Besides that, carrying a baby around is a pretty decent workout.
    6) Are you dieting?
    Yes, still no dairy or soy. I added everything else back in, but I am going easy on the peanuts and wheat gluten.
    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner? We cook 6 nights a week. DH and I take turns. Right now we eat around 6:30-7. But when I go back to work we will likely eat later.
    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with?
    We all go together, we go every sunday.
    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed?
    Henry has been going to bed around 8-8:30pm and me around 10-11pm.
    10) How are you beating the summer heat?
    By not going outside and eating coconut milk ice cream. Although I shouldn't complain, its been a mild summer here so far. Only 2 days in the 100's so far.
    11) Any 4th of July plans?
    We are going to my brothers. They just bought a new house and I get to see my nephew that is 3 weeks younger than Henry. Henry and his cousin have never met. Excited to get cousin photos.
    12) Anything else you want to add?
    Dreading going back to work, dealing with lots of insurance and hospital crap from my birth, and started studying for my next architecture exam. But in good news, I think Henry and I will try to make it to a crybaby matinee this week. A movie sounds fun!

    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc... Rylee, 3 mos, hasn't been in a few weeks but she was 14 lbs and almost 25 in and I think at least a lb bigger

    2) Latest milestones. Lots of giggles... Nothing really big comes to mind

    3) Baby is happiest when.....? Someone is talking to her. She loves the attention

    4) Baby is saddest when......? She has gas.

    5) Are you exercising? Ehhhh fell off that wagon but hoping to get back on

    6) Are you dieting? Some days. Again hoping to be more consistent

    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner? Some weeks 3-4 times we order out and I hate it! Such a budget killer but we get lazy. Mostly it is take out. I do most the cooking but DH helps and he does all the clean up. We eat dinner around 5

    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with? We used to all go before Rylee but now usually me and DD go or I go alone at 7 am on Sundays. This week we didn't go yet so I am going to try today with both kiddos. I need some things for the baptism on Sunday that are on sale as well as a few regular stuff. We go once a week and the $150 makes me sick... Groceries and gas are so damn expensive now

    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed? She usually goes to sleep between 8-9 and I am right behind her. Depending on her bottles DH wakes her up to take a bottle around 10 but some nights we just let her go like last night and then she was awake for a bottle at 3

    10) How are you beating the summer heat? Last week DD had hand foot mouth so we were inside in the a/c for a few days. It was horrible!! We have one of the 12ft blow up pools and there is a lake in our town but we haven't used either yet

    11) Any 4th of July plans? Our town usually has a big 4th cookout etc but there is construction this year so no carnival. They do a bike and carriage parade with pony rides and stuff that we may do but we are not doing fireworks sinc it is way past DD bed time. The 5th we are going to a zoo and amusement park.

    12) Anything else you want to add?

    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc: Emma is now 12 weeks. At her 2 month appt she was 11lbs. 3oz. which is 56th or 57th percentile. She was also in the mid 50th for head and length (21.5" if I'm remembering correctly)
    2) Latest milestones: She rolled over from tummy to back a few weeks ago! It's so funny to me that she's doing this sooo much ahead of when DS did it, but is still barely grabbing at stuff. She seems to have her own idea of when to do things!
    3) Baby is happiest when.....? She's happy most of time. I feel so lucky with her. You get really big grins when someone talks to her though, and toys with music and sound get her too.
    4) Baby is saddest when......? she gets overtired, oh and too much time in the car. She hates that.
    5) Are you exercising? I walk a lot.
    6) Are you dieting? I am just trying to eat healthy. I'm cutting out dairy at the moment too.
    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner? We're hit and miss on this. I try to cook every day, but it just doesn't happen some nights. Weekends can be really bad. DH is good about helping, but will only do a few dishes or the boxed meals. I typically don't like eating those, but some days, it's all we have time for.
    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with? We either all go on the weekend, or DH goes during the week in the evening.
    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed? She goes to bed between 6-7pm, but her night sleep lasts until about 8am. It's an early bedtime, but it seems to work for her. She's a bit of a catnapper, so I think she needs that extra night sleep. I go to bed between 8 and 9. I get up really early for work and am usually dragging by 8.
    10) How are you beating the summer heat? Mostly staying in. The bugs are TERRIBLE so far this season.
    11) Any 4th of July plans? My dad and brother get her for a visit today. I'm very excited for my dad to meet his first grandaughter! We'll cook and and blow stuff up though I doubt I'll stay up for any of it, lol.
    12) Anything else you want to add? Things are going really great for us. I'm suprised to find that I actually really enjoy nursing now. I do think she's a bit sensitive to dairy though and I'm working on cutting that out. She's pretty gassy and the one time I had milk, she had a really bad couple of days.

    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc. I'm guessing about 11lbs now and 24in long
    2) Latest milestones Just more smiles and coos, almost laughing
    3) Baby is happiest when.....? He wakes up in the morning.
    4) Baby is saddest when......? He's hungry
    5) Are you exercising? I try to a couple times a week.
    6) Are you dieting? No
    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner? I aim to cook dinner every night but we usually eat out once a week. DH rarely ever cooks and if he does it's mac n cheese or some other pasta meal. We eat dinner around 6pm.
    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with? I go 1-2 times a week with all the kids. If I wait until they're in bed, I'm usually too tired to do it.
    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed? Baby about 9pm, me about 11pm
    10) How are you beating the summer heat? Wearing tank tops, staying inside; it really hasn't been too bad.
    11) Any 4th of July plans? My parents are going to be here for the Wing Ding which is a rally for Goldwing motor cycles and they will have all kinds of festivities later in the week.
    12) Anything else you want to add? I ran myself to the ground and now am fighting off a cold and sore throat. And on top of that I have mounds of laundry, grocery shopping, and the house to clean before my parents get here tomorrow evening.

    Yes actually Henry is the happiest when someone is talking or playing with him, but only if he has had a good nap. I came here to update that Henry rolled over this morning! Yay! He has been working on it. He has a sort of giggle too, its like a talking giggle rather than a hehehehe giggle. I keep asking DH if its a giggle and he says it is so I guess it is.

    And Joan the bugs are bad here too, probably the main reason I don't go outside much. I am so scared of west nile virus. Texas had like 700 cases last year or something crazy like that. We know 3 people that got it last year, so I am not taking chances with my little guy. A friend of Dh's parents is still suffering from it. Its crazy we never worried about this when we were kids.

    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc - Reid - 3 months, he hasn't been weighed or measured in about a month now, but at his 2 month appt he was 12 lbs 6 oz and 23.75 inches long. We don't have another appt for another month though, so will be interesting to see how much he has grown by then.

    2) Latest milestones - He is working very hard on rolling over. He keeps pushing with his legs and tilting his head, but he hasn't quite figured it out yet. T was really late rolling over, so I'm not too worried about it. He grabs things with his hands and seems to intentionally kick the toys hanging down from his play mat with his feet, and he smiles and laughs all of the time.

    3) Baby is happiest when.....Someone is talking to him and paying attention to him

    4) Baby is saddest when......He gets tired

    5) Are you exercising? Ugh. I was running 5x a week at one point. Ever since I went back to work, I'm lucky to do it once a week. Sigh.

    6) Are you dieting? No dairy, but other than that I am pretty much eating whatever I want. I am STARVING all of the time, and I am almost 30 lbs down, so I'm not worrying too hard about dieting right now.

    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner? - Oh jeez, this question is my secret shame. We are SO BAD about cooking. I'm hoping that DH will take it up now that he is home for the summer. He's a teacher, but he was taking a class that went from 8-5 the whole month of June. So yeah, basically we have been living off of sandwiches and take out for 3 months. So bad for the budget.


    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with? Weirdly, I do go grocery shopping about once a week (someone has to keep this family in lunch meat and hummus!) I always take Reid with, and usually T too.

    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed? Reid is in bed by 8, and I try to be in bed between 9:30-10.

    10) How are you beating the summer heat? Mostly just staying inside

    11) Any 4th of July plans? We will be going to DH's aunt's house. All of his family will be there. I'm supposed to bring a cake.

    12) Anything else you want to add? We are hoping to get our house on the market by next week!!!!
    -Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)

    1) Baby's name, age, weight, percentiles, etc
    -Kylie, 2.5 months, last check she weighed 11lbs and 23.5in
    2) Latest milestones
    -Trying so hard to roll over but that dang arm gets in the way if she is on a flat surface. But she will roll on the couch or our bed.
    3) Baby is happiest when.....?
    -She wakes up in the morning or someone is talking to her.
    4) Baby is saddest when......?
    -She's tired or hungry and we aren't getting to her fast enough or when she's done playing on her own.
    5) Are you exercising?
    -Hahaha...no. I really really need to be though. My parents are more then likely buying a boat and a pool in the spring and I need to lose weight so I can actually feel comfortable in a bathing suit..hubby thinks i'm nuts, but eh!
    6) Are you dieting?
    -No, never have. I don't eat a whole ton, but ice cream is my weakness...who can just have one or two scoops...not this lady!
    7) How many times a week do you cook dinner? How often do you dine out or pick up food? Does your DH cook? What time do you eat dinner?
    -We cook almost every night. We did eat out this past Sunday(well DH and DS did because I ate with my parents since I was there doing laundry.) DH will cook some things but not a whole lot, but he does try and help. We usually eat between 6:30-7 since thats when DH gets home from work.
    8 ) How about grocery shopping? Who does it, how often, and does baby go with?
    -I do the grocery shopping(now that DH is back to work) and mainly once a week, but i've been trying to push it to every two weeks. Gas is insane in our truck having to use premium gas and it's close to $4.50 a gallon! If I go grocery shopping I have the 6 year old and Kylie with me and my mom will go with to help. The only time i've gone shopping on my own with all the kids is when my 13 year old step son came with and he was able to push one cart while I did the other.
    9) What time does baby go to bed? What time do you go to bed?
    -She is usually asleep between 9-10(some nights differ of course) and within an hour of her falling asleep is when I go to bed.
    10) How are you beating the summer heat?
    -It really hasn't been all that bad here. Only 72 today and maybe 80 tomorrow then we will start getting even warmer this weekend.
    11) Any 4th of July plans?
    -We'll go to my mom and dads for a cook out. Maybe a parade on Saturday if we can get us all up and out of the house early enough.
    12) Anything else you want to add?

    I can't copy and paste on his phone...so.. gonna trythis out.
    Julie. 12lbs and..um..10 oz I think. 24 inches long (96th percentile! Gets that from daddy)
    She's been giggling a couple times. She laughs..but the giggles are hard to come by.
    She's happy when someone is holding her or when you're in her face smiling.
    She's a crab when she wakes up too early from her nap or when she gets gas.
    No.
    No.lol
    I cook every night. We never eat out. DH does zero cooking and we usually eat around six.
    She goes to bed early..around 630 but we are also very early risers for work..so it works out good.
    I'm not beating the heat. Plus where I work there is no air. I usually drop 20 lbs in the summer from sweating.
    Going to MILs house for a cookout possibly.
    I can't believe time has gone by so fast!
    Jessica, Tim and Baby Julie
