Woohoo for crawling! I find it's easier than carrying them everywhere... haha

Gabriel is pulling to stand on things now and he has two teeth. He was army crawling, but over the last week he started "true" crawling on his hands and knees.

And Ella is very "two" and independent. She loves playing outside and painting/drawing. She is actually drawing blobs that resemble faces now! Smile

As for me, I'm thinking about making a slight career change to midwifery in the next couple of years (I'm a nurse right now). And I will eventually find my way back to the TTC boards, but not for a couple of years... I think... Wink

Lisa - we have that "jail" too - we used it all last year outside for Adair. I can't believe how big the boys are getting - they are SO cute!!! And congrats on the weight loss!!

Skye is doing well, a great little sleep, but she has a good set of lungs on her and sure likes to use them! She is a super colicky baby and I find it a struggle some days. Adair is great, growing like a weed and running as fast as he can to the terrible twos!!! Yikes - I think we have out hands full!!

Sorry I have been mia for so long. I keep having login issues but I have kept up with you all. Most of you all I see on facebook. Smile Anyways all is well here. Elliott is growing and learning so much. He is so smart to me anyways. We have started trying to potty train but it is not working so well at the moment. I think one thing is the lack of being able to be home more than a day or so then we have somewhere we have to go. He talks so much it isn't funny but anyone who truly knows me knows he got it honest. LOL Anyways we are ttc 2 without any luck yet maybe due to the fact we aren't actively ttc just try here and there. I want to be more relaxed this go around than last. Smile Elliott is truly a lil sweetheart. He is at this stage where he is so so funny. He tries my patience and makes me laugh all at the same time. I added some pics for you all to see. I hope maybe my login will work now I can get back to keeping up with you all. If Elliott looks wired on the first two pics that is bc we were taking pics at 12:30am this morning. LOL Dh doesnt get home from work until about 11:30 and I have been trying to get E on a schedule but it is so hard.



Will be back n a minute to comment on the rest of this thread. Smile

Thought I'd check in here after seeing your updates, which I love!

Mine are getting so big now. Chayse is 21 months and Brett is almost 9 months old. It doesn't seem possible that I was TTC so long ago and now I have two beauties! Glad to see you guys! Pics are in my siggy of my goofy goobers.

Heather can be found on the June 09 she is due this month.
Sarah I think posted a week or so on the January 08 board & scrapbooking board.
You can find Amber I believe on the photography board.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Autumn! Last time I was here, I do believe you were still pregnant!

Brett was born on September 8th of last year. 5 days after Chayse's 1st birthday. Surprise, 10 weeks early! It's pretty fun around here. They are mostly sleeping through the night - thank goodness!

Congrats on your new little baby girl!

Wow, that is awesome! Glad you are getting some sleep! You will have to keep us updated more!

As for us:
I think we have finally got Skye sorted out after weeks of crying all day long...we have her on lactose free formula and she seems to be doing better each day. She is back to sleep through the night and doesn't seem to have as much tunny pains. Adair is growing like a weed, talking a bit more and is the energizing bunny - he NEVER stops!

It's so nice to see all of you girls! We spent so long here together and now look at us! Biggrin
William is getting smarter (and crazier) each day and I'm growing by the day too. I didn't have a belly at all until recently but it's here with a vengence! I go tomorrow for another perinatologist appointment and to see the little one again- we should get some 3D pics too. They diagnosed the baby with bradycardia the 1st time because the heartbeat was only at 75 but it's been normal since then- hopefully everything will be normal with it's heart tomorrow. We're keeping it a surprise (unless I give in lol)!!!

Hi folks - a serious oldie here - so old I'm not sure anyone's left who remembers me, but I've just posted my birth story on my board and darn it, I want to let the good ol' 0-12 (my second home for 2+ years so long ago) that I Graduated Biggrin

It's also a really positive view on uterine malformation, so please pass on the link to anyone you know going through that. Life is truly miraculous and nothing is ever set in stone.

Blessings to you all. Here's the link (it's hideously long I'm afraid, but there are pictures ;-))
