Age of your lo now 19 months (can it really be already?)
Milestones they have recently met She is chattering up a storm. I only wish I understood what she is saying. She talks in what sounds like sentences -- at least it is long enough. Then she will repeat the exact same pattern, so I know it's not babble -- I just can't understand it yet.
How is mommy doing? Pretty good -- work is crazy busy!! Some days I have baby fever and others I am just content with what I am blessed with. Right now DH and I are waiting until May for ttc.
What is new in your life? DH's parents are coming to town on Friday. We are taking a week and spending it down by Disney. It's gonna be great to have a vacation.
name of lo......Cecil and Asher
Age of lo...21 months and 2 1/2 weeks
Milestone for Cecil.... He is starting to name colors and count...up to 4. He talks all the time and tries to repeat everything we say. He also has an awesome sense of humor and constantly tries to make us laugh.
Milestones for Asher... He is an expert breastfeeder and he is now awake more.....he loves to follow rattles with his eyes.
How is mommy doing.....great -still a little sore from the c-section,but other than that doing reallygood. I'm loving spending time at home right now .
What's new in my life......just Asher ...and that's enough right now lol . I will say that going from one kid to two is not nearly as hard as I thought it would be though.
Sasha.... I can't believe How old all of our babies are now...time has really flown by!
Do you have any recent pics of makenna?
Good idea, Sam! Sorry I've been MIA, checking the board but usually no time for posting. I will post pics and a birth story on the main board. I read your story, Sam. Sorry it was so scary, but glad it all turned out okay!
Name of your lo - Juliana and Toby
Age of your lo now - Ana is 20 months, Toby is 10 days old
Milestones they have recently met - Juliana has a HUGE vocab and seems to be extremely proficient at puzzles and memory type games...she seems less like a baby and more like a little girl every day
Toby is just eating, sleeping, pooping, and GROWING. At his 10 day appt today he was 14 1/2 oz over his birthweight.
How is mommy doing? I'm doing good, just learning to balance the whole circus I've got going on here. DH is still on paternity leave, so that helps a lot.
What is new in your life? Toby....and how far little baby boys can pee...wow.
Kelly....he is sooooo cute!! Just a tip from a mom of boys....... Keep wash clothes handy, and if during a diaper change, if he will be uncovered for a little while, put the washcloth over that area. It will help keep you from getting dirty lol. They make pee guards, but a plain washcloth does the same thing.

she can count to 15, sometimes 20.....10 in spanish, knows a few words in spanish also! thanks to Dora....knows all of her shapes,colors, learning to identify letters and numbers now also.
How is mommy doing? exhausted !!!!
What is new in your life? hmmm....well Mick started working again in Nov after almost 18 months, I got a minivan for Christmas, and Mick just had to get a car when his died a few weeks after I got the van ! ugh...
Milestones they have recently met--new sentences every day and counting and colors. We are hoping to get her into her toddler bed this weekend, yikes!
How is mommy doing? I'm doing good considering all we have been though but I just hold onto God, He really is my rock. Elijah's dd was last Friday and we went to the cemetary to lay flowers and brought his bunny from the funeral home and his Christmas tree. They will toss old things away so I was suprised the bunny was still there.
What is new in your life? I think most of you know that we are pregnant again! Really scared but mostly excited and thankful. Oh, and Gabriella has a baby in her tummy too...she is so silly. We have also found an amazing church back in January and it just feels like home there, love it! I've seen so many changes in my children and we pray together as a family at night and it's been so cool to listen to their prayers and how much they have grown since we first started.
Great idea Sam...I've been MIA and love to read everyone's updates!
Name of your lo: Savannah
Age of your lo now: 14 months
Milestones they have recently met: wow i almost don't know where to begin she's been doing so much in past few months...she has 16 teeth now (!!) She has been walking since early Dec, so is quite good at it and seems to be venturing toward running (ack)....Savannah has about 9 words she uses consistently (mama, dada, baba, hi, bye, no, dog, that, this) and signs "more", "milk" and "all done". She's learned to open doors (soooo not excited about that new skill) in both directions (pulling open and pushing open)....and probably b/c we're first time parents and clueless I've been really surprised at her recent ability to follow instructions and understand us - she now consistently can bring her bottle to the kitchen, throw something in trash can when asked, go to her highchair, go to her room and sit on changing pad when we tell her we need change her diaper, and she'll go grab her coat, socks & shoes when asked. She's getting really good (usually) at helping us dress her too - particularly with socks & shoes b/c she LOVES her big girl shoes.
How is mommy doing? Mommy is exhausted!...work gets busier & busier, and it seems almost impossible some weeks to keep up with anything - the house, bills, errands. I do really enjoy my time with Savannah though b/c she's becoming increasingly FUN to play with -- not that she wasn't as a baby, but now we play hide & seek around the couches & chase each other around and she LAUGHS sooo hard that it's just adorable. She also loves to come sit in my lap and read her little books together
What is new in your life? Not too much new...we're doing Little Gym with Savannah once a week and she loves it. If i can figure how to squeeze in another class on weekend I want to take her for baby swim lessons soon too -- since we have a pool, even though it's got a child safety fence, i want to accelerate swim lessons for her and her pedi reminds me every appt b/c drowning is very (scarily) common in TX with so many pools & lakes around.
Remembered Forever with Love
