What's the most surprising thing about baby so far? His size! DD was only 16 lbs at 1 year. He was 14lbs 6oz at 3 months!
What are your goals for the rest of the year? Don't get pregnant again? Blum 3
Best thing about not being pregnant? It feels nice to be able to actually accomplish multiple things in one day. Having normal iron levels sure has helped my energy level!

What's the most surprising thing about baby so far? How observant she is already and how giggly

What are your goals for the rest of the year? To sleep, my goal is to sleep. Oh how I miss it.

Best thing about not being pregnant? I actually miss being pregnant. I'm better to my body, eat better, no drinking, etc. Other than constipation I generally feel pretty good. If I had to pick though, maybe not bumping into things with the belly Smile

What's the most surprising thing about baby so far? He's up on all fours and rocking, and trying to crawl. He has his legs going, just has to figure out the hands.
What are your goals for the rest of the year? Get caught up in some work and get my back better to get back to the gym.
Best thing about not being pregnant? Not being pregnant.

What's the most surprising thing about baby so far? Not sure what is surprising.....I just love having a little baby! Even though I am sleep deprived, I am so sad realizing it is my last one!
What are your goals for the rest of the year? Don't get pregnant. Nurse for at least 6 months. Start exercising. Survive our upcoming move.
Best thing about not being pregnant? Sleeping on my belly. Having a baby to hold and look at while he sleeps Smile

YUP! He's superbaby! He was creeping across the floor since he's a few weeks old, but now he is getting up onto all fours all the time. He is starting to use his hands to reach out. He can get to where he wants to go too which is why I consider him totally mobile and crawling even though he doesn't have the technique quite right yet. He puts his arms in front of him, then boosts his feet underneath (sometimes even into a down dog). Then will launch or flop forward. But he will see what he wants and go after it. He will crawl across the room to get to his playmat, then play on it for a while on his tummy, then roll himself over and play with the hanging things, then flip back etc. He loves to crawl after books and eat them. And once he was on his way towards me, when he saw his jolly jumper then crawled to it and looked at it longingly. I put him in it - he loves that thing. It's by no means full on crawling - but it's so cute and so close, and I do have to keep an eye out since he will crawl into things and bump his head or get stuck.

What's the most surprising thing about baby so far? Hmm, nothing really jumps out at me...I guess how she is so alert to and interested in her surroundings. She is always paying attention, loves watching her brothers as they are always running around. She hates to lay back in anything like a bouncy chair, the rock-n-play or a lap. If you try to put her in an incline position she starts doing crunches and trying to get up.
What are your goals for the rest of the year? Enjoy the holidays! I'll actually feel like decorating and doing active things this year. This time last year I was feeling horrible and had zero energy. Also get the kids moved around so the big brothers are sharing a room and Ainsley is sleeping in a separate (from me) bedroom in her crib.
Best thing about not being pregnant? I was thinking the same thing as Adina before I even read her answer so yeah...not being pregnant! Smile

What's the most surprising thing about baby so far?How good he is
What are your goals for the rest of the year?Getting my house clean
Best thing about not being pregnant? not sure, being comfortable when sleeping I guess.

Jonah is getting up on his knees, he can push himself forward a little ways. It makes me sad, because he was supposed to be my baby!
