How is everyone?? Tired! And, haven't been feeling myself since the boys' birth - went to the doctor today and have PPD - starting medication today, so hopefully that gets better!
Breast or Bottle? How's that going? Any problems? Bottle - going ok - might look into different bottles, both boys' seem gassy and it's affecting their sleep
Recent Weight/length?? Length - unsure; we weighted them at home and Rayce was 10.6 and Ryin was 10.14 - just estimates though.
How's the LO sleeping at night?? Co-sleeping (not by choice), and getting up once to eat
Brags?? They are very close to smiling for real!
Complaints?? Just want to sleep in my own bed - between sleeping on the recliner when pregnant and now, I haven't slept in my bed since April!
Besides taking care of a newborn What have you been up to? Just hanging out at home and taking care of my 5 year old
Anything else???

How is everyone?? Pretty well! As of this moment, pretty sure I have mastitis. Yuck!! This is my 4th time to get it. I'm an old pro at this. Lol!

Breast or Bottle? How's that going? Any problems? Breast and bottle. Mostly breast. I give them pumped milk with a vitamin in it. It's going great. It was a lot of learning and work but we finally got it down!

Recent Weight/length?? Close to 10lbs for Jeremiah. 8 1/2lbs for Evie. Both are almost 19in.

How's the LO sleeping at night?? They have started giving me 5-6 hour stretches!

Brags?? Lots of smiles from both!!

Complaints?? Mastitis. And witching hour!!!!

Besides taking care of a newborn What have you been up to? Taking care of my 3 and 5 year old. Figuring out this family of 6 thing.

How is everyone?? We're doing good, DS1 is having major sleep regression so he is making our nights LONG!
Breast or Bottle? Breast and one pumped feeding per day How's that going? Great, I had a hard time pumping with my last but I have tons of milk this time around. Any problems? Thankfully, no.
Recent Weight/length?? At two week check last Monday he was 8lbs 5oz and was 21 inches.
How's the LO sleeping at night?? Better than his Big Brother:) He gets up every 3-4 hours and goes right back to sleep, pretty easy.
Brags?? At this point with a 2 yr old and a newborn I am just happy to have a semi-clean house and dinner ready every (well most) night.
Complaints?? Nope.
Besides taking care of a newborn What have you been up to? It is all about the kids these days, I did take Anton with me to the local theater to see the musical my DD is in...it was awesome and he didn't make a peep the entire show.
Anything else??? I haven't been around much because the site seems to be having problems with Android devices...anyone else having issues? Thanks Erica for doing a checkin, it is nice to see how everyone is.

How is everyone?? We are good. We're tired, but preschooler and newborn will do that to you.
Breast or Bottle? How's that going? Any problems? BFing. Sydney is a champion eater. Finally fixed latch on right side, so she's doing well on both.
Recent Weight/length?? She was 10lbs, 9oz at 2 week appt and 21 inches (she was 22 at birth so that might have been a wrong measurement)
How's the LO sleeping at night?? She is bouncing between colic-y crying all night and sleeping 5 hours at a stretch. I'm trying to figure out what in my diet is different on her colic days.
Brags?? Ummm....she's the cutest baby ever? hehe
Complaints?? I'm struggling to get the hang of 2. IT seems like I am the circus leader anytime we want to go anywhere it just takes forever to get everyone ready.
Besides taking care of a newborn What have you been up to? Keeping DD1 busy-playing at the park, etc. Otherwise just enjoying mommy time before work begins again.
Anything else??? I can't figure out why on days you finally get a full nights sleep you feel more tired than when it was interrupted???

How is everyone?? Good so far
Breast or Bottle? How's that going? Any problems? Bottle, only takes 2 1/2 to 3 oz at at time, every 2.5 to 3 hrs during day
Recent Weight/length?? 11lbs 12 oz, 22 inches
How's the LO sleeping at night?? he sleeps from 8-9ish at night to usually 12-2 and then resumes the every 3 hr schedule-so he gets a good stretch however its when im still up at night cuz i cant sleep that early and so it doesnt benefit me-one of the things in which he still does at as his adjusted age
Brags?? Love his smiles he gives me, reaching for things that appeal to him but doesnt grasp yet, loves to talk to you, love when he sneezes its always at least 3x and then the last one comes on but passes and he goes oooohhh every time
Complaints?? he doesnt really fuss before he wants a bottle-its 0-to peeved off-and he SCREAMS sooo LOUD and doesnt be quiet until he gets that bottle...sigh
Besides taking care of a newborn What have you been up to? Went back to work and painted the whole office, making sure my preschooler gets to his field trips on time-i swear he has a busier schedule than I do, had a halloween party, and thats about it
Anything else???
