Sorry it's late-- March questions  
Happy March!  I've been loving the birthday posts-- looking forward to more!

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them):
2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month?
3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans?
4) Show us a baby pic or two

extras...  I'm going to skip them this time, since we should be having lots of year-in-photos posts coming up!  Plus, I'm super busy today (which is why I didn't post this this morning).  But feel free to add something if you want to!

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): She is exactly 11 months, or 11 plus 1 day, depending on which calculator I look at.  I don't know her length/weight, but I believe she is in a growth spurt.
2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month? She's just cuter and more engaging all the time!  She's starting to walk, she's using words (most adorably calling all cats Tuckah! because one of our cats is named Tucker), she's finally starting to sleep a little bit better.  I hope the sleep thing sticks!  Still hoping she will get better about naps, too.
3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans? I've been enjoying working very very part-time (2 evenings a week), and otherwise things are good.
4) Show us a baby pic or two  We went on the swings 2 days ago and she just laughed and giggled.  It was awesome!

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): She'll be a year a week from today, somewhere around 19 lbs

Okay, I'm going to be honest and say I only look at the pictures here, so I'm only going to post them too, haha...

1. Sophie; 30-something pounds and very tall. I don't know exact height, but I know it's off the charts, haha. She's wearing her brother's 18-24mo hand-me-downs.
2. She's pretty great unless she's teething. She's all over the place despite not walking yet and is very playful. She thinks her brother is just the greatest.
3. I'm doing okay. No real plans for anything since we're trying to save up for a car (it's been almost a year and a half since we've had one and it's driving me insaaaaane!).

Oh that rawr picture is too funny! Anya doesn't say "Rawr" but she likes us to say it, while pretending to eat her, or while making her stuffed animals pretend to eat her.

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): 1 year and 2-ish weeks. She has her 1 year checkup tomorrow (they accidentally scheduled it for January so when I had to cancel that tomorrow was the first available day) so I'm not sure on stats. She's still a bit of a peanut-- thin, though I think she's getting pretty tall. Still in 6-9 clothes for the most part but outgrowing them in length.
2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month? Good! Well, we had a birthday and a birthday party. :) We went to My Gym and I strongly recommend it for a first birthday party if anyone has one nearby. We had so much fun. She just got her 7th tooth and I'm sure molars are going to be giving us an issue soon. She's walking almost exclusively-- she's been stepping for months and "walking" for a month or so, but right before her birthday she seemed to realize that she could actually use those steps to get places. She hasn't figured out how to stand without using something to pull herself up yet. Dealing with another cold-- December through February has just been one cold after another. She's enjoying real food, which is so weird since my son was so picky and was still nursing every few hours at this point. She's cut down on nursing a lot, and my period returned. BAH!
3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans? We're going to go to the snow this weekend-- fun! We'll see how Laurel enjoys it. I'm sure her brother (3 1/2) will have a blast. We went to Disney on Ice last week and she seemed to be entertained by that for a bit (LIGHTS! ooh!). She's really into animals so we've been going to aquariums and zoos and whatnot.

I think Anya is finally gaining some weight, but she still fits her 3-6 month onesies, too (although, like Laurel, they are getting short-- but I wonder if that is just because of the cloth diaper?). Her pediatrician was totally unconcerned, even though she used to be on the big size at her early appointments. My mom told me I was in the 3rd % for weight around 9 months, and I certainly didn't stay tiny!

Anya has been able to stand without pulling up, either pushing off the floor, or just standing from her crazy hop move without even touching the floor, but she still falls over if she takes more than 3 steps (or sometimes more than 1!).

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): Colin is 1 year + 2 days old. :-) He's still hovering around 22lbs and has been for a couple of months. It's starting to concern me, but I'll definitely be asking his pediatrician about it next week. He's still nursing 4-6x per day, but I'm struggling to increase the (healthy) fat in his solids diet. If only he liked avocado! And if only I could feed him dairy! (He's sensitive to cow's milk still) Not sure on his height, but we'll find out next week.

2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month? He's doing so much now. He's trying to walk and has taken up to three steps so far before falling down. He loves standing and getting him to sit down these days is pretty difficult! He's started saying "Da-dee" (daddy) and "dough" (dog) and "tittat" (kitty-cat) and "ba" (ball/book). Still no "mama" though. :-( He's finally starting to sign back too! He's known a couple for a few months (when I signed them), but he's only recently starting signing himself. The most consistent is, of course, "all done" because he wants down to go play again! Today he's pretty miserable, but I noticed that he's working hard on tooth #8. Guh. I hope we get a break before he starts working on those molars. He's a HORRIBLE teether.

3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans? I'm doing okay. Got my period back since Colin is nursing less (SUCK!), but I noticed I'm actually feeling a bit more like myself since it happened. Hormones back to normal, I guess? I joked around that I almost want to get pregnant again so I don't have to deal with the monthly visitor... but I'm so not ready for that. Maybe in a year. Maybe. ;-) No real upcoming plans. Still thinking about when I'll return to work and just looking forward to spring and summer so we can get out more!

4) Show us a baby pic or two: Since I just posted Colin's "year in pictures" about a few photos of the various stages of birthday cake?

Uhm... what am I supposed to do with this?!


He seriously sat there and held onto the cake(s) for about 10 minutes. Just sat there.


Okay, Mama, playing with icing is pretty fun after all!

Great photos! He looks like he wants to show you his creation in the 3rd one.

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): 11 months, around 20 pounds. not sure of the height.
2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month? walking, talking more, copying EVERYTHING you do, and getting into anything she can. she is currently sitting at her toy basket saying "uh oh uh oh" over and over.
3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans? we are trying for bebe number two! i'm semi hoping it'll take a few months so i'll have another spring time baby.

this was yesterday before we cut her bangs (my husband called her emo baby!) i didn't get a chance to take an after picture because we did it right before a bath then it was off to bed.
Dillyblith on March 2nd, 2010 03:39 am (UTC)
i just posted my pictures! because i am way too tired to try and find links you'll have to go back and find it!

1 Caya is 1! and about 22-25 lbs, and almost 3 ft high. i have to do a wellness check for her soon.
2 she is doing great! and trying to stand on her own more! she is getting more word-like sounds in too!
3 how am i doing? slight seperation anxiety going on as i had to go back to work (today!) and this is the first time it's seperation by choice. last time was a seperation by hospitalization. i'm going to learn to deal though.

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them):
She's 11 months and 1 week - I think. She weighs around 6.4kgs (Oh my gosh, I can't believe in 21 days she'll be ONE! It's so surreal)

2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month?
She's doing great, a few more teeth have cut through, after 2 months of just 2 at the bottom. Total teeth count is 6 :) She's standing alone now, we're just waiting for her to take her first steps. She has tried but fell after one step. She's kind of asking for things now - she reaches out and says mum with a questioning look on her face. It's the cutest thing ever, I always give in :P
We took her out to the park for the first time, she went on the swing and a few other things while having a blast.

3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans?
I'm doing good. There's not much to report besides my fiance and I have decided to start TTC for baby #2 at the end of the year.

First, I haven't posted here in so long! I just got a paid account again and am finally getting into the groove of using the internet, again. (I was without it for about 10 months.) So, anyway, hi, again.

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): Olivia is 11 months 4 days old. She was 20.06 lbs last week (we caught the flu!) when we went to the doctor. Not sure how tall, last checked (at 9.5 months) was 29".

2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month?
Besides getting over the flu, she's doing quite well. She started walking about 3 weeks ago and has been everywhere she can possibly go! She has a new tooth and I believe she's working on the 4th, too.

3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans?
I'm also getting over the flu, and I'm currently 24 weeks pregnant! I'm not working, but still being a stay at home mommy with Olivia and eagerly awaiting the arrival of my son, James, in June. And my most recent venture is cloth diapering! Ordered a trial package today and I can't wait to see how well it goes/doesn't go!

4) Show us a baby pic or two
I really hope these come out okay. I'm so out of practice I have no idea how to resize these images here. Sorry!

Smiling for the camera.

With her Zoey-dog.

1) Baby's age and current statistics (if you know them): 1 year one week! Not sure how much he weights or length. He has his yearly appointment next week.
2) How is your little one doing overall? What fun things happened with babe in the last month? He is great, still hasn't gotten sick (knock on wood), walking up a storm. Body surfs down the stairs, no real words yet but he is getting close. Working on his fourth tooth.
3) How are YOU doing? Anything you want to share about what you have done or felt in the past month? Any questions or concerns? Any upcoming plans? The whole family is doing great. Saturday is his big birthday party. We are very excited!
