    1. Name: Mia
    2. Baby's Name: John
    3. Baby's Age: 3 months, 2 weeks
    4. What size diapers are they wearing? Size 2 in disposables
    5. What milestone(s) are they working on? He's been rolling over from tummy to back for about a week. Giggling sometimes.
    6. Any routine developing? His sleep schedule is fairly predictable
    7. Any favorite toys (or places like the bouncer, car seat)? He loves the mirror and some other toys on his play mat. Likes the bumbo for sitting.
    8. If you have other kids or pets, how are they all getting along with the LO? DD still has her days when she gets jealous but she only takes it out on us, not the baby. Overall she's doing really well and loves him.
    9. How many naps and how long do they sleep at night? Usually two daytime naps (one short, one longer one) and most nights he'll sleep from 8 pm until between 1-3 and then down until 5 and sometimes back down until 6:30. A few nights in a row he slept from 8 pm - 5 am!!
    10. How are you feeling? Are you feeling back to your old self or still adjusting?
    Okay overall. Anxious to have true spring weather and get outside, I'm itching to get more exercise in for myself and DD.

    Anything else you'd like to share? I'm just trying to soak up every minute with John as a baby. It goes SO fast and as it stands right now, we doubt we'll have another one anytime soon. We'd like another kid, but financially we can't do it right now so we're planning things with just these two for now. Bittersweet.

    1. Name:Tiffany
    2. Baby's Name: Hayden and Caleb
    3. Baby's Age: 3 months today
    4. What size diapers are they wearing? Just started size 2
    5. What milestone(s) are they working on?Caleb is giggling and needs better neck, upper body control. We think Hayden is probably smiling at us sometimes. He coos like crazy and is obviously happy to see us so we are not too worried.
    6. Any routine developing?They tend to take their first feeding around midnight. Hayde does better to go to bed on the early side. Caleb likes to sleep in and stay up late.
    7. Any favorite toys (or places like the bouncer, car seat)? They both love the swing and the bouncy seat.
    8. If you have other kids or pets, how are they all getting along with the LO?Luke loves them. Sometimes he doesn't know when to stop touching them. He gets in their faces at times.
    9. How many naps and how long do they sleep at night?They usually take a long morning nap and a long afternoon nap, not necessarily at the same time.
    10. How are you feeling? Are you feeling back to your old self or still adjusting?I am tired, but I think that is more work related.

    Anything else you'd like to share? I am not ready to call them my last. Maybe someday, becuase having little ones doesn't fit in with our overall lifestyle plans, but we love our babies (and oldest) so much. I think there will always be part of me that says maybe until I can't anymore.

    1. Name: Holly
    2. Baby's Name: Reagan
    3. Baby's Age: 2 months 2 weeks
    4. What size diapers are they wearing? Size 1
    5. What milestone(s) are they working on? She's starting to coo and really wants to talk. She's a smiling queen
    6. Any routine developing? Not yet....we're working on a bedtime routine, but other than that I'm not home enough during the week to see a routine just yet.
    7. Any favorite toys (or places like the bouncer, car seat)? She loves her swing!! She is just now starting to grasp for toys, but hasn't gotten ahold of any on purpose yet.
    8. If you have other kids or pets, how are they all getting along with the LO?The kids love her!! They all fight over who gets to hold her, feed her, and pick out her clothes. We have one dog and one cat. The dog ignores her, but the cat likes to lay on her...almost protective like. It's pretty sweet, but I only let her when I'm holding Rea and can see what she's doing.
    9. How many naps and how long do they sleep at night? She sleeps 3-5 hours at a time during the night. I'm not too sure on naps during the day, but on the weekends she takes one in the morning and two in the afternoon.
    10. How are you feeling? Are you feeling back to your old self or still adjusting? I'm feeling alright. I am not feeling like my old self yet, but I'm getting there. I've been experiencing a lot of muscle spasms on the inside near my incision site, and it bothers me. I've started running though, and that's helping me to feel like my old self again!

    Anything else you'd like to share? I cannot believe how quickly time is going by. I'm trying to soak up every moment because I know Reagan is my last. Like Mia said...it's bittersweet.

    1. Name: Amanda

    2. Baby's Name: Spencer

    3. Baby's Age: will be 3 months on the 9th

    4. What size diapers are they wearing? size 2

    5. What milestone(s) are they working on? he can lift himself right up on his elbows now for tummy time, so I think he will be rolling over soon

    6. Any routine developing? He's pretty easy to figure out. He starts to just cry out a bit when he's hungry. If you don't feed him right away then he goes into full on crying. If he starts full on crying with no warning that usually means he needs to burp. And he has a little noise that he makes when he's getting sleepy too.

    7. Any favorite toys (or places like the bouncer, car seat)? he like to be in his bouncy seat, and he now hates the swing.

    8. If you have other kids or pets, how are they all getting along with the LO? DD loves him. She loves to help me feed/bath/change him. She is still super jealous of me and him though. We also have 2 dogs and a cat. They all pretty much just leave him alone. I think they are scared of kids now because my DD is all over them all the time and they just want to be left alone. LOL

    9. How many naps and how long do they sleep at night? usually 2 short morning naps, and a long nap in the afternoon. He goes to bed around 8pm, the same time as DD, and sleeps usually until about 6am.

    10. How are you feeling? Are you feeling back to your old self or still adjusting? Pretty much back to my old self, except the weight. I still need to loose 10lbs. I haven't really worked too much on that yet. I want to join the gym, but right now it would be pointless because I would never get there. I have no one to watch him while I go, and the gym has a childminding program but they have to be at least 6 months to take them. So I will have to wait a few months.

    Anything else you'd like to share? I am reeeeaaaalllllyyyyyy looking forward to some nicer weather so I can get outside with the kids more!

    Name: Lesli
    Baby's Name: Alivia
    Baby's Age: 14 weeks tomorrow
    Diaper size: still in 1's
    Milestone: haven't got a good laugh out of her yet, she talks all the time.
    Routine: trying to get into a routine, nighttime is a breeze, she is so tired around 8 and is pretty easy to get down just trying to work on naps
    Favorite toy/place: not too interested in toys, her sister is FAR more interesting...she LOVES baths
    Other kids/pets: DD is great with her, she is doing a bit better staying out of her face and being careful around her....our dog is super gentle with her she just likes to sniff her and occasionally lick her (when I'm not watching, ew!)
    Naps/sleep: she goes down between 8-9, sleeps until 2-3 am, goes right back down until about 5-6 am, will go back down until sister wakes up around 7-8 am. Will take 1 long nap (but not in her bed, she does fine in her bed at night but not during the day...ideas?) in her bouncer and a few catnaps
    How am I feeling? Finally back to normal! I am a very active person, I love to exercise. My friend and I try to go running after our kids are in bed and we go at least 3-4 times a week running 3 miles each time. I also try to do 30 day shred every day while baby naps. I still have at least 20 pounds to lose
    Anything else? I agree with Amanda, ready for good weather Utah is being psycho, last week it was in the 60's , this morning we woke up to snow I am NOT a snow lover
