How is everything going? Going good! Just been super busy these last weeks before school starts.

How old are your LO/LO's? They're all doing great.

Are you co-sleeping? Our 2 year old still climbs in to bed with us every night.

Are you BFing? No Gavin weaned a few weeks ago at 14.5 months. This pregnancy dried up my milk.

Is your LO doing anything new? Yeah he's headbutting me lol. Sure wish he'd unlearn that one.

Are you ready for fall? Not at all, that means winter is right around the corner.

Any big plans coming up? Not really, just going to my 2nd midwife appt today.

Any questions, concerns or comments? Not that I can think of at the moment, but then again I'm only on my 1st cup of coffee

How is everything going? Its going as well as it can. Our soon to be 4 year old has an attitute to match any teen out there, and our 14 month old is falling ferther and ferther behind in front of my eyes and there is a lot of stress at the moment.

How old are your LO/LO's? 4 and 14 months

Are you co-sleeping No. Kids are only allowed in our bed if they have a bad dream or are sick. Otherwise they sleep in their own beds.

Are you BFing? Yes. 15 months come Aug 14th

Is your LO doing anything new? Not really. She's stalled since 10 months. She's developmentally fally ferther behind. We're quiet concerned.

Are you ready for fall? No because DD#1 starts school and It means winter is coming.

Any big plans coming up? Wonderland trip for DH myself and some really good friends of ours. Last trip without the girls. Nana is keeping them for the weekend. We won 4 free adult tickets thats why we're going.

Any questions, concerns or comments? Not for here, but in general I am really getting tired of fighting constantly to get help for DD#2. I feel like its an uphill battle all the time to get people to take me seriously.

How is everything going? Everything is wonderful! Being a mother is more amazing than I ever could have imagined and Colette is more adorable and perfect than I ever would have let myself imagine!

How old are your LO/LO's? 1 month

Are you co-sleeping? Yes

Are you BFing? Yes! About 24 hours a day! lol

Is your LO doing anything new? She's much more alert during the day and 2 days ago she smiled for the first time (at Daddy making fish faces).

Are you ready for fall? While I hate to see summer go, I'm anxious for cooler weather so Colette and I can get outside more. I feel like she's too small to be out in 90+ degrees for long.

Any big plans coming up? The end of this month we are taking her on a beach trip to visit my brother. Granted, she won't care about the beach, but I'm excited for a getaway!

Any questions, concerns or comments? I just posted one in another thread!

How is everything going?
Pretty well, although Ben did have an allergic reaction to something he had for lunch a few days ago. We had to drive him to A&E but fortunately it wasn't serious and some anti-histimine sorted him out. I've a few more grey hairs

How old are your LO/LO's?
Almost 11 months.

Are you co-sleeping
Yes, although I recently moved Ben into his nursery at night now, on a mattress on the floor. When he wakes up I go there and co-sleep with him until morning. So we're 50% co-sleeping.

Are you BFing?
Yes.

Is your LO doing anything new?
Climbing is his new thing: on top of his toy box, onto the sofa, wherever he can reach. He also likes to hold on to the sides of his cot and bounce up and down.

Are you ready for fall?
Yes, and Ben's first birthday

Any big plans coming up?
See above. His grandparents are coming to stay (both of them!) for his first birthday.

Any questions, concerns or comments?

Not really. I'm starting to think about trying some gentle techniques to teach Ben to sleep without nursing (or rather, trying them again; I went through them all when he was younger, but no success then). I've not set a timeline and if it takes until he is four years old LOL then so be it.

Hi!

How is everything going? Well, could be better. There is a possible case of H1N1 at my job... and Hugo is going through the "terrible twos." But I still feel blessed.

How old are your LO/LO's? Hugo is 15 mos., Sergio has 2 more mos. to bake

Are you co-sleeping? Only on vacation... we have a short one coming up in 2 weeks. I do nap with him though.

Are you BFing? No.

Is your LO doing anything new? Everything... today he went #1 and #2 on the potty and then said "More poo poo" because he wasn't done. He also said "I love you" all by himself today!

Are you ready for fall? Yes, because that means a new baby for us!

Any big plans coming up? The vacation will be to Myrtle Beach for a reunion- just a weekend but we'll see how well I feel by then... hopefully none of us have the H1N1 by then.

Any questions, concerns or comments? I would love to hear stories of APing through the terrible two/tantrum stage. Hugo sure is in it and some days I worry about how we'll make it with him and a newborn!

Ok, i'm a lurker
How is everything going? Pretty good.

How old are your LO/LO's? 3 1/2 and 1

Are you co-sleeping? The 3 yr old sleeps in his own bed in his room and the 1 year old has been co-sleeping pretty much since birth. Just today I sidecar'd the crib. So we're going to see if it will work out better since DH doesn't really like the little guy in our bed.

Are you BFing?No

Is your LO doing anything new? The LO just learned how to walk about a month ago.

Are you ready for fall? YES! I am so tired of this hot weather her in socal.

Any big plans coming up? Nope.

Any questions, concerns or comments? Nope

How is everything going? Pretty good.. this pregnancy is kicking my butt most days.

How old are your LO/LO's? DS is 5 years old, and Baby#2 is due 01.26.10

Are you co-sleeping? No, DS sleeps in his bed in his own room. Baby will be sleeping in our room, but probably only in our bed about 50% of the time.

Are you BFing? No, but I will be once baby#2 gets here!

Is your LO doing anything new? He's always doing something new.. he's learning how to write now.. he can write about 10 words without any help, and can write anything if you'll spell it for him.

Are you ready for fall? Yes, DS starts Kindergarten in 3 weeks, and we find out what this baby is in a month or so!

Any big plans coming up? Just school starting and the big U/S for this baby!

Any questions, concerns or comments? Not yet! =)

I am a very recent lurker.... but I thought I would introduce myself. I am Toni and my DH is Steve... we just had our first child together. He has two from a previous marriage and this is my first.

How is everything going? Everything is going much better, especially after reading some of the links on this board. I have had everybody and their mother trying to tell me how to take care of my little girl.

How old are your LO/LO's? 6 weeks old

Are you co-sleeping I never believed in co-sleeping until I had Kerrigan and saw for myself the awesome beauty of it.... and how much better she sleeps. So that is a yes.

Are you BFing? Yes

Is your LO doing anything new? She is now smiling when I motorboat my lips. LOL

Are you ready for fall? No. I will be back to work full time

Any big plans coming up? I am going to A Dave Matthews concert tonight.I made these plans quite a while ago. Now I don't even want to go. I would rather be home with my little girl.

How is everything going? Good

How old are your LO/LO's? Abby just turned 3 and Anna is 7 months

Are you co-sleeping Yes, not fulltime, but we never really have. She started pulling to standing, so we stopped using the co-sleeper and she starts the night out in her crib. It's strange to have her so far away, but she's had a few nights she's slept until 3-4am, which she never did in our room! The other nights, she's up when we go to bed anyway, and then we bring her into the bed with us.

Are you BFing? Yes

Is your LO doing anything new? Everything! Anna started crawling, pulling to standing, and picked up on eating, all in the past 10 days or so. She cut her first tooth last night too

Are you ready for fall? I love fall, so sure

Any big plans coming up? My sister will be home next week, the first time since Christmas! She eloped in January and they are coming back to have a reception, so it will be the first time seeing her as a married woman too

Any questions, concerns or comments? Not really
