1) Baby's name/birthday? Any other kids?
Vanessa (August 4). Her sister turns 4 7 days before so we have lots of cake that week!

2) Any plans for more Sapphire siblings?
We want one more. Our plan is to TTC late 2013-early 2014. However, I have not been as precise with the mini pill as I am normally with being on ANY pill but that would be fun too Smile

3) Height/weight?
guessing about 18 lbs and 27 inches

4) Any hair? If so, what color?
brown but still at the baby fuzz stage.

5) What size clothes/diapers/shoes (if you use them)?
clothes 12m, diapers 4

6) What kind of games/toys does your baby enjoy?
Pulling toys (or anything) out of containers, hitting keyboards, eating paper books, knocking the cats water dish over

7) How does your Sapphire get around? Crawling? Cruising along furniture? Rolling?
Up until this week she has had zero mobility. She started crawling this week and is now unstoppable.

8 ) Any teeth? Where are you with solid foods?
one tooth up today, 3 more in the near future. She eats what we eat and eats everything.

9) Brag a little! What awesome things has your kid learned to do recently?

[]1) Baby's name/birthday? Any other kids?Brad and Kaylee, Sept 6. Sydney, July 28, 2007

2) Any plans for more Sapphire siblings?I would LOVE one more but Hubby is getting the big V in a week so I guess thats not happening.

3) Height/weight? Brad is 28" and 19lbs and Kaylee is 26" and 16lbs 7oz

4) Any hair? If so, what color? Brads hair is red (or ginger as it so commonly referred to) and has a beautiful curl to it and Kaylees is bright blonde but still fussy. Brad will def need a hair cut long before Kaylee!

5) What size clothes/diapers/shoes (if you use them)? Brad is wearing 6-9 or 6-12 month tops and 3-6 shorts (he's long and lean) and Kaylee is still stuck in 3-6. Diapers they are both still in 2s but I think I'm going to move Brad to 3s.

6) What kind of games/toys does your baby enjoy?Kaylee loves peek-a-boo and patty cake and Brad loves splashing you in the bath. And as for toys they just love whatever the other has!

7) How does your Sapphire get around? Crawling? Cruising along furniture? Rolling?They are both pro crawler and are starting the cruise around furniture

8 ) Any teeth? Where are you with solid foods?Brad has 4 but is working on more and Kaylee has 2 with no sign of any others. Kaylee still loves to be feed so still enjoys purees but Brad loves to feed himself so he gets more finger food. Although Kaylee will feed herself she perfers I do all the work!

9) Brag a little! What awesome things has your kid learned to do recently?Just Today, Kaylee was playing in her crib while I bfed Brad and she stood up in the middle and stood unassisted for 10-15 seconds. They can both pull themselves up and stand unassisted but neither have stood up by themselves. They are going to walk way too early Smile

6) What kind of games/toys does your baby enjoy? anything that makes noise, pretty much.

1) Baby's name/birthday? Any other kids?CJ/Oct. 6, Brandon/5

2) Any plans for more Sapphire siblings?Not at the moment. Maybe one more in a few years, but we might be done

3) Height/weight?He hasn't had his 9 month appt. yet so I'm not sure. He's a big boy though

4) Any hair? If so, what color?CJ has lots of brown, curly hair

5) What size clothes/diapers/shoes (if you use them)?12 months in clothes, Size 4 in diapers

6) What kind of games/toys does your baby enjoy?CJ likes anything that lights up and makes noise...or anything he's not supposed to have

7) How does your Sapphire get around? Crawling? Cruising along furniture? Rolling?CJ is crawling, pulling up, cruising.
