We always go to DH's aunts house for Easter and crack confetti eggs on each others heads. Smile

Sophia has 2 bottom teeth and loves to bite while nursing. Ouch!

Just going to church here. Hoping we can take some Easter pictures.

Sarah is laughing at everything! She thinks we are SO funny! She has been laughing before, but this amount is new. It's a fun development.

What are your Easter plans?

This isn't necessarily an Easter thing, but my in-laws are visiting and we will probably do a few things with them this weekend.

What's new with your LO?

David has suddenly forgotten how to have a bowel movement. He is usually a once, twice, heck, even three times a day baby, but he just got over a nearly seven day span where he didn't do anything. We finally had to give him an enema. He pooped once, but he hasn't pooped again, so I guess I'll be calling the nurse again tomorrow. Sad

What are your Easter plans?

No big plans this year. We're moving the Friday before and DH is working that Sunday.

What's new with your LO?

He is 100% mobile now! He army crawls all over and chases his brother and sister all over the place :). He is just so desperate to be involved with whatever they're doing!

Paula- Does he seem uncomfortable or is his stool hard? Because it's completely normal for a breastfed baby to not poop very often. Caleb goes every 10-14 days. All 3 of my kids have done about the same. Our pedi said that they're growing so fast they use everything, and breast milk doesn't have any filler that isn't being used up. If he's really constipated then nvm :).

We'll go to church. if it's nice we'll picnic b/c church is a 45 min drive. Then DH will probably smoke a turkey or I'll cook a ham for supper. No family here. They all live 20 hrs away.

I organized an egg hunt for dd's preschool, so we're doing that Thursday.

Kessler likes to be loud. He is really testing his vocal chords these days.

Karen - WOW! I'm so not ready for a mobile baby!!! That's crazy!

Well, the thing is that David has always been a frequent pooper, I mean once, twice, or even three times a day. His poop wasn't hard, but it was, as my husband described it, like melted chocolate--pretty abnormal for a breastfed baby. I supplement a little bit with formula but not that much.Anyway, I'm waiting to hear from the nurse.

Not sure what we are doing for Easter yet. Definitely going to do an Easter egg hunt for my oldest.

Nicholas just started sleeping in his new room in his new crib. The first week didn't go so well but now he is more used to it but still wakes to eat so we are working on cutting a couple feedings so he sleeps better at night. I'm in need of some good sleep!

Since I last posted, Sophia is now sitting up all by herself! She's actually been doing it for a week in daycare. They thought I knew so they never mentioned it to me. Made me a little sad that I missed it. It reminded me of all the things I will miss while working, but it doesn't count when mommy doesn't see it, right? I missed my son's first steps too. Sad Makes me wish I was a SAHM!

What are your Easter plans?

Currently our only plans are to be home and enjoy the day with the family. There will be a small egg hunt for DD and easter baskets!

What's new with your LO?

Conor does not want to learn to roll over, so he just skipped that. He rolls up onto his sides from his back to look around, and can wiggle himself absolutely anywhere! Since he decided rolling was pointless, he's sitting up instead. Kids are weird!

No specific plans for Sunday, there will be a Easter Egg hunt for the girls and stuff. Then just spend the day together.
I am going out tonight in a Girls Night Out and other than once getting my haircut it will be the first time I have been away from Callan. DH will be putting all 3 to bed for the first time on his own tonight. Worried about how it will all go. Looking forward to a glass of wine but need to make sure I am still ok for expressing at 3am then feeding him after. Concerned how he will do for DH as he is still a a major Mummy's boy in the evenings. So tempted to call and say I can't go lol just to make things easier.

Callan overall is great he will be 6 months old next Friday where did the time go. He laughs and smiles and 'talks' all the time. He is still in with us but has about outgrown his Moses basket. I am not ready to move him so need a new plan lol

Easter plans are it's Annabelle's 2nd birthday, and all the family made other plans, so no party on her birthday weekend. We'll chill out by ourselves.

Gillian has just recently started on solids, loves loves loves her sweet potato, and finally gave me 6 hours straight last night:)
