Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Where the heck is everyone!? I've been afk because we moved and then we had some internet issues in the new place. But everything is back up now and I miss you all! So let's all stop lurking and get back to posting!

How are all your LOs? Crawling? Solids? Sleeping?

I'm around. How was the move?

Nicholas is doing good. sitting up, rolling all over to get to where he wants. Standing for several minutes against something. Trying to figure out how to crawl. Has 2 bottom teeth. Still isn't STTN but working on him sleeping in his room in his crib but with the teething it's been hard. He takes 2 great 2 hour naps a day and is still BFing. He is also eating table food, skipped baby food all together. He is 20lbs already! I can't carry him in the carseat anymore but luckuly it is warmer outside now so I can just take him out and put him in a cart.

Also, my DS1 turns 4 next week and I cant believe Nicholas will be 8 months too! Time goes way to fast!

Can't wait to hear some updates from everyone!

We are doing great. Jessica is rolling over back to front only. No other milestones yet. Can't wait for them to happen. We are sleeping 9 hours at night. She only does this for mommy though...

I'm here! Sophia has 4 teeth on the bottom and one is coming in on top. She is sitting up and almost crawling. We have moved her to her crib and she sleeps maybe 6 hours and then I bring her into our bed. We also started cloth diapering and I am having so much fun with it! Smile

I've been here and there Smile It's taken me awhile to respond to this post as I've already been on different devices and they're not as easy to type on as my laptop!

Conor is doing well. He can roll over, but doesn't really want to. Instead, he purposely throws himself from sitting position to his stomach where he curls one leg up under him and pushes WAY up on his arms. I foresee real crawling in a matter of weeks. He can kinda scooch around backwards in that position. Other than that, he is a great eater! He loves pretty much all baby food and is starting to eat some finger foods. He'll do better when he has teeth, and he's teething big time!

Great to hear from you ladies!!

Things have been crazy at work as we are getting ready for the end of the year, so I haven't even been lurking really.

Sarah is doing great. We started solids at 6 months and she has had pretty much all of the baby food vegetables. She is a good eater and is still nursing about every three hours during the day. No teeth yet, but she seems to be teething a lot. She has big swollen gums. Sad We moved her into her crib about a month ago. She slept through the night about three nights in a row, but woke up in the middle again last night. I hope we are moving toward better sleep.

Glad some of us are still around!

David and I are doing well. Still no teeth, but he's working on it. At his 6 month visit, he weighed 17 lbs, and he was only 25 1/4 inches long. He's very short, very round, and very cute! Oh, the big news. HE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT LAST NIGHT!!!! I realize using all caps means that I'm shouting. But I am shouting. For joy. This is the first time since he was born that I have actually slept for more than 5 consecutive hours. He's rolling over and he can sit unassisted, but he shows no interest in learning to crawl or push himself up into a sitting position. Any advice in teaching babies how to do that would be greatly appreciated. He has also reentered the screaming phase. He screams for joy, he screams for boredom, and he screams when he is upset. So, he must be about to hit another developmental milestone. Here's hoping it's babbling because the screaming is leaving my nerves in tatters. Anyway, hope you are all well. Enjoy your summer!

I haven't been on in MONTHS! Things have been very crazy! Levi is 7 months as of this past Saturday and he is rolling over back and forth, doing what seems like crawling...he can def get from point A. to point B. He likes to actually get on his feet and hands and tries to get around that way as well. He can also stand for a few seconds on his own, waves hi and bye, sits, has two teeth on the bottom and working on two more up top. He pretty much sleeps through the night, from 9pm until 5:30 or 6am...so all in all he is a good baby and EXTREMELY ACTIVE! This new mobility of his makes watching him so challenging especially with having a 4 year old in the house that loves to play with Barbies. I have to always make sure the floors are clear of beads, Barbie shoes and accessories, etc!

Samantha- The move was good! Thanks for asking! We love our new place, it's back in the city we grew up and its so much nicer than where we were.

Jennifer- I'm so happy you like cloth diapering! I cloth diapered my younger two and just started back with Caleb. I had to stop because we were in an apartment without w/d hookups and the laundry mat machines were awful. DH got me a new set for mother's day/our anniversary when we moved, so I started again. I love it!

Melissa- I hear you on it being difficult with older LOs around! My 2 & 4 year old are always leaving tiny toys around Caleb can't have! I never had that problem when Christian was little and Grace was a baby because he was still so little he didn't have anything she couldn't!

I'm glad everyone is doing well and your LOs are getting big and progressing :). Caleb skipped to table foods like my other 2 did. He is a complete mama's boy and he doesn't sleep through the night. No surprise there, I've never been blessed with a good sleeper. He is crawling and pulling up to stand, he cruises a little but doesn't make much distance yet. He's 29.5 inches and 25 lbs! Crazy HUGE! But still almost bald :).

We are still here just forget to pop on here most days now lol Callan is awesome all of his weight issues see, to be behind us he has gone from under the 2nd percentile to just under the 25th YAY He is a mostly happy little guy, definately a Mommy's boy. We are still b/feeding on demand and we skipped babyhood all together and went straight to whatever we are eating. He loves steak and asparagus Smile We had some sleep challenges a few weeks ago but all seems to have calmed down now. He goes to bed about 7:30 - 8 and sleeps till between 4&5 then comes into bed with us and I feed him laying down. So he then goes back to sleep till about 7am. He can roll over but doesn't haha. Loves to stand and sit etc. No teeth at all I love his gummy smile so much I am no hurry for him to get any Smile

All in all we are good Smile

Emma- I'm so happy he finally gained weight for you! I know what you mean about that gummy smile. I felt completely cheated when Caleb got teeth so early! But you know what's funny is his two top teeth on his left side came in before either one on the right. So while I got cheated out of the happy gummy smile his was still pretty funny there for a while :).

That is great news about the weight gain! Sarah is still my little chunk. Weight gain is not our problem, but she still wakes during the night. Every baby has their own thing!

We are still toothless here, too! I keep thinking that we will get one soon, but none to be seen yet.
