Oh wow! We're not even to 2 months yet!
None of my kids have been early teethers. My oldest got his first tooth just before his 1st birthday, then bam got them all at once (it seemed). I actually liked that way better than how it went with my 2nd. With him, he started getting teeth at about 7 or 8 months and it seemed to drag on for months. My DD got hers around a year as well. I'm praying that Kellen is like DS1.. also makes for a great nursing relationship
Sam will be 6 months on Friday. At his last appointment he was 13 pounds 10 ounces. We have been dealing with some breathing issues but all in all doing well. I think he us starting to teeth

LOL We are way behind! I think Marek might be the youngest baby on this board...
Anyway, we are finally starting to get more of a routine going and I'm starting to feel like a better mom LOL. Everything feels more under control and more manageable with a loose routine. Marek is great and so happy most of the time. Kostas is doing great as well, its so nice that he doesn't have any negative feelings toward Marek. I've also been working really hard to break out of my shell and be more social. I've done several play dates the last 2 weeks and taken Kostas to several activities too. He is much happier since I have started this. It also recharges me. As much as I want to just stay home and hole up, I have so much fun when I do get out.
Picking up Kostas at the bus stop
Cloth diapering is going much better than I thought it would. I haven't bought a single disposable diaper since Marek was 10 days old. I have bought more pocket diapers and they are even easier and so darn cute. I'm also dabbling in Elimination Communication!
My newest pocket diapers!
Breastfeeding is still going really well. I have NIP in soooo many different places, I feel so proud! I would always go sit in an empty room or in the car with Kostas but this time I just do it wherever I am. It is so empowering
Sleep is getting better and better. I actually woke up engorged this morning because Marek slept for 6-7 hours straight! That didn't happen with Kostas until he was closer to a year...
This Woombie swaddler has helped at ton!

Callie had her 2 month appt yesterday, a few weeks late since we have been out of town.
11 lbs. 4 oz. - 75th percentile
23 1/2 inches - 95-99th percentile
Her pedi is thrilled with her growth, as am I! She put her on her tummy to see how well she would hold her head up and she suprised both of us be rolling to her back! Breastfeeding is gong great and am so proud of myself for NIP several times! I was only able to BF DS for 3 months, so I am nervous as we approach that milestone this time. Callie had a few rough weeks in the sleep department, but is doing great since we have been home, sleeping 6-8 hour stretches at night. The only problem we are really dealing with right now is terrible gas! She is very difficult to burp so that is part of the problem. Might try eliminating milk, cheese, and yogurt from my diet. It will be hard as I love those things!
And finally, some pics!
My mom took this one, I love it! DH nicknamed her ping pong because her head is so round!
And one of DS that I took in KS that I love.
Carson was 2 months a week ago and we had his 2 month appt this last friday. He's definately way more chunky than DS1 ever was and we're doing great EBF. He's up to 15lbs 15oz from his bw of 9lbs 9oz! I think it's so interesting to see the difference in my boys, DS1 was always super nosey, wanted to know what everyone was doing all the time, and really social. Carson on the other hand has a completely different personality, he's way more serious, wants to do what he wants to do, and more interested in everything BUT the person holding him. I was a little worried about his lack of eye contact/being interested in faces but I've learned that he just has to be in the right mood.
Finally getting around to reading all the updates! My they're growing!
We still haven't had our 2 month appointment, but I did try to make one! lol. Base clinic wouldn't let me make an appt till she was in their DEERS system and well we waited as long as possible to get her birth certificate and just got her registered right before the 60 day mark. Guess I should call later today. She won't get any vaccines and I have no concerns, so I'm not exactly the most on top of this.
Zoe is my Ms. Chub Chub. She started off weighing less than her brother and I'm pretty certain that she weighs more than he did at 2 months! She's super happy still (remember smiling within hours of birth!) and started baby laughs at 8 weeks. She sleeps fantastic - anywhere from 3-9 hours at a time! Pretty much her brother's sleep opposite. lol. It's fun watching her learn how to grab toys right now. She loves to flirt with the hanging toys from her rocker/bouncer chair.
