I'm missing everyone too. This is about the craziest time of year for me....dh is working constantly.
Name of your lo? Juliana (and Cori is my first)
How old is your lo now? 15 months
What new milestones has your lo met? She is still the most physically adept baby I've ever known. Today, I put all of my chairs in the garage (we have to bring them in to eat at the table) because she is ALWAYS on the table and I'm worried about the countertops too. She has a handful of very clear words and lots of "words" that only we can understand. She knows tons of words, though, and can follow simple directions like, "point to your hair, give me a kiss, go find a book, etc" She is just starting to enter the tantrum stage, which looks like it could be more of a challenge than with Cori. She is generally pretty easy going, though, very social and very funny.
What words does your lo say? kitty, EAT, dada, HI!, uh oh, Hap (the cat is Happy), ball, ba (means pacifier to her ), ow She also signs "more" and "all done".
What is thier favorite game? She is a big fan of peekaboo...she puts her blanket over her head.
What is their favorite food? She just loves food in general so its tough to say. We've yet to find a food she doesn't like.
What is the cutest thing they have done lately? When we say its time for night night she runs down the hall to her room, takes out her pacifier, and opens her mouth wide (for kisses).
How is the mommy doing? Still pretty terrified about having another so soon, but handling the actual pregnancy pretty well.
Have you done anything for yourself lately? We leave for Jamaica soon...we haven't been anywhere just the two of us since our honeymoon. I'm very excited.

I felt like that after cecil was born until I had my first Post Pardum Period. After that I felt more "normal" again. That was at about 6 months. I hope things get back to normal for you soon.
I know I totally suck and haven't been around - things have been soooo crazy between work & home (it's amazing how much MORE time consuming watching Savannah is now that she's mobile - we totally took for granted how much you could multi-task before she could crawl).
Name of your lo? Savannah

What new milestones has your lo met? crawling, clapping, hugging (omg the BEST skill ever!!), kneeling and she's just started to pull up to her feet from crawling position
What words does your lo say? only real word is Dada, but she says Baba quite a bit, definitely recognizes it for bottle but uses it for everything She definitely recognizes "Mama" too but just grins and laughs when I try to get her to actually say it...lil stinker...
What is thier favorite game? toss up between patty cake, peek-a-boo & daddy swinging her from side to side (which we refer to as Pendulum Baby)
What is their favorite food? Still definitely BM...she likes her baby food (bananas esp) but doesn't LOVE them the way she does nursing
What is the cutest thing they have done lately? Soooo hard to choose...but I think it's that lately when she wakes up in the morning she begins clapping delightedly as if waking up was just the most wonderful thing that could happen to her - absolutely adorable (and only happens in early AM LOL...she hates naps)
How is the mommy doing? I'm exhausted and work is beating me down...other than that life's good...did I mention I'm hosting Thanksgiving for all grandparents since it's the day after her birthday?..and now maybe also hosting Christmas too??...ughhhhhhh I need to clone me!!
Have you done anything for yourself lately? Mostly nothing but after my dr kicked me in my butt at a regular appt last week ("So WHAT are you going to do to make sure you've lost the last 15lbs from the pregnancy before I see you again in Feb?"...yes that's a quote ) I just joined WW online to help motivate me. I am quite sick of not being able to lose the last 15lbs, so recommitting to diet and hopefully scraping a little time together to excerise too is definitely doing something just for me
