I'm looking into starting the master's program in the fall. I'm doing better with my PTSD and PPD, but every day is still a challange. My next move is to start going to see a professional to help with some of the issues I can't seem to fix on my own.

Can't believe they are 1!!!

Height/Length: 32 inches
Weight: 26 pounds

Clothing size: 18-24 but can still wear 12-18 in most of Carters clothes but thats the only brand that still fits that 'small'

Shoe size: 4... We finally bought 2 pairs of 4's and they fit great even with some room in the toe to grow.

Walking: Nope. We've 'tricked' her a couple of times to stand on her own in the middle of the floor but thats it.

Words: Mama, Dada, Baba, Nana, Wow... none of them have any meaning or association though.

Diaper size: Size 4 disposables.... Size 2 Ecobumz cloth diapers (yes we are cloth diapering during the day now)

Anything else? She plays patty cake all day long, claps, waves, and she has recently learned where our noses are... no idea where her nose is but if you ask her where your nose is she will show you Smile

She's happy as can be all of the time! Such a sweet baby. She's gotten sick so much this year, she's scheduled for tubes 1 week from today. Sad really hoping tubes help fix the frequent ear infections she's been getting since we moved to Utah.

Do you have any fun summer plans? Hoping to visit Arizona as often as possible, go swimming, play, have fun. Sad that my SIL and nephew will be moving at the end of May Sad wish they could stay the summer and play with us too.

Update on you: Busy taking care of Ava and working hard on my etsy shop. I don't have a lot of free time anymore so I've been on the board less because of 'work'. Started Weight Watchers again just over 2 weeks ago. Going pretty good, looking forward to getting the baby weight off and then some. Want to get pregnant again as soon as possible but PCOS is not allowing that to happen right now. Hopefully by the end of the year we will be pregnant again.

Clothing size: Mostly 18 mo.

Shoe size:4s but they are a little too big, 3s are too small.

Walking: Not independently. He can stand by himself but like Brittany said, kind of has to be tricked into it.

Words: Mama, dada, cup, gook, baby (not sure what that means but he says it all the time)

Diaper size:4

Anything else? Getting lots of teeth in right now! Loves cars and wheels.

Do you have any fun summer plans? No, we suck

Update on you: I'm good. Working a lot but not getting too stressed yet Smile I'm trying lose a bit more weight too. Tom is working on going back to school. Hoping to move and get pregnant in about a year. Getting baby fever!

So, Chloe's not officially one until tomorrow morning at 12:08a. Smile I know our weekend/next week is going to be crazy though so I'm doing this now!

Height/Length: 31 1/4" (95%)

Weight: 18lbs 7oz (10%)

Clothing size: She can still fit some 6mo summer stuff, lol. 9mo tops, 12mo pants and sleepers. Girl has loooooong legs!

Shoe size: 3.5-4 depending on the brand/type of shoe

Walking: Oh yeah! Try running!! She's a busy girl!

Words: Mama, Papa, Dada, Gramma, Kee (Keeva the dog), Kitty, Doggy (first time she said this was Monday! Up until now everything fluffy has been a kitty), I do, I go, I see, Thank you, Yes, No, Birday (Birthday) (we've been working on this one for a few months!), Up, Go, and probably some other ones I'm forgetting. Chloe talks to me all day long.

Diaper size: 3's. I think the next box we get will be 4's, but we still have 100 or so of the 3's left and she's not hanging out of them yet. Wink

Anything else? Chloe is a busy, energetic toddler. She loves to climb and explore EVERYTHING. She loves to dance and any time music is playing she's boogying it up! She has different moves for different types of music. She cracks me up. Smile

Do you have any fun summer plans? We are trying to get the $$ together to go to MN for a family reunion in July. It's not going so well though, so we may just be hanging closer to home and hitting the beach and Disneyland a lot. We'll see!

Update on you: Right now, life is going okay. MIL is foreclosing on her house, and moving in with us! Lots of stress there, but we'll get through it. My body seems to be getting back on track and I've been working on losing some more weight. Trying to work on building our savings account and get our finances in order, but we aren't doing so well on that one! Mostly, we are just enjoying life, each other, the outdoors and an occassional cupcake. Smile

Height/Length: 32.5 inches
Weight: 27 lbs
Clothing size: Mostly 24 month. 18 month pants are too long, and 24 month onesies are getting short. Must have short legs!
Shoe size: 6!! I thought he was wearing a 4 and they were getting a bit small, bought a size 5, came home, and they are too small. I checked his old pair and they were a 5 Sad
Walking: Yes! He is very old man like and takes small, jerky steps, but walks all the time.
Words: I think so. He says Hi to himself in the mirror. Mama, dada, and all done. Signs milk, more, all done, bye, cracker.
Diaper size: 4

Height/Length: 30 1/4 inches
Weight: 23lbs 10oz
Clothing size: 18-24 months
Shoe size: Size 5 for now, I'm sure we'll be moving up to a 6 sooner than later
Walking: Yes since about 9m3w, and running. He's such an adventurous boy. He's always on a "mission" going somewhere.
Words: Mama, Dada, Nana, bird, ball, book (but it's never just "book", it's always "a book a book a book", 3 times lol), kitty, if you ask him a question he always says "yeah", uh oh when he drops something (or before he purposefully drops something), and.....sh*t :confused: That one's my fault. I've stopped saying it though! I'm hoping if he doesn't hear it anymore he'll forget about it eventually. He can also say his first sentence, "Do you see it?". He points at anything/everything and asks "Do you see it?"
Diaper size: 4, soon to be 5..I just want to use up all the 4s we have
Anything else? Like Hudson, MB LOVES to be outside. We're always outside playing and walking around and exploring. He loves to read. He'll bring a book to me and say "a book a book a book". He knows what 80% of his books are, so you can say "Go get Elmo and Angela (or something)" and he knows exactly which book. He's so so so friendly! Yesterday at his party he hugged and kissed all of his friend when he saw them, regardless of whether or not they wanted him to lol. And today at the doctor's office he went and checked on all the babies in their car seats, and ran up to every kid that walked in the door and tried to hug them lol. He's awesome.
Do you have any fun summer plans? Just swim a ton Smile I'm going to get him his swim outfit, diapers, etc. today. Hopefully we'll make it out to the lake a lot, too. I just want to enjoy this summer with him. It'll be the last before I'm in nursing school and working, etc., and he'll be at such a fun age.
Update on you: I'm doing well. Taking 16 hours this semester, and making one B and the rest are all As. Still doing yoga daily, running, going to the gym and stuff..that all keeps me sane. Life is good!

Update on you: Not a ton to report about myself. Still staying at home with the boys. I've really been working on my photography, and wanting to get better. I need some new subjects though, because my kids are getting really tired of me taking pictures of them.
