Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

I love Graham's eyes, too cute!

Yesterday my 3 year old jammed a coffee straw into Elias' ear while I was in the bathroom. I didn't know what to do because I didn't see blood or anything but he was acting super fussy. I called the pedi and they said to bring him in right away and they would check it out. I took him in and the membrane was ruptured and bloody. They had us get an emergency appointment with an ENT specialist and we are heading down there shortly. I have no idea what to expect, I'm just hoping it is a simple fix.

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

How big is your LO now, and how big was he/she at birth?

Jack is about 15 1/2 pounds and 27 inches. He started at 4lbs 7oz and 18 inches so he is growing quite well on mama's milk.

Have they met any big milestones and when?

He started to roll a few weeks ago and is learning how to sit. I had the Early Intervention people out and he qualified and of course as soon as he qualified he started doing everything he is supposed to. We just started a bit of solids last week. He is hit or miss with it. I am not in a big hurry with that anyway.

Planning any other LOs in the future?

Yes, but I can't tell anyone IRL that. With all the complications I had with Jack, it is risky, but I plan to wait at least a couple of years before TTC.

Have a recent picture you'd like to share?

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

I wasn't active in the ddc, but i'm an Aug. mama too!

Simon weighed 16 lbs at 4 mos, so I'm guessing he's about 17-18 now at 5.5 months. At birth he was 7 lbs 8 oz.

Have they met any big milestones and when?
he rolls over all the time. he can't sit on his own yet though.

Planning any other LOs in the future?
I'm thinking 3 is a good amount.

Loving the pics guys. Everyone's LOs are definitely growing!

Elias saw the ENT today and his eardrum wasn't ruptured, just scratched. Thank goodness!

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

I don't know how I missed this thread!

How big is your LO now, and how big was he/she at birth? I'm guessing around 17-18lbs. She doesn't have her 6mo check-up for another 2 weeks. She weighed 10lbs 13oz at birth.

Have they met any big milestones and when? Heather has been scooting around since she was 3.5 months (she was able to do a full 360 when on her belly), and around 4mos she started army crawling. A few weeks ago she started getting up on her knees but still isn't technically crawling. But she doesn't even have to because she gets EVERYWHERE, really really fast. She isn't sitting on her own yet and has no interest in rolling. She just wants to move, move, move.

Oh, and she has also found her voice. She started babbling this week and sometimes my 3yr-old interprets what Heather is "saying" for me.

Planning any other LOs in the future?
In a few years.

Have a recent picture you'd like to share?
Only two. I thought I had more but I guess I took more videos than photos in January.

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

Hi Everyone! I've been going nuts around her planning our real wedding. I haven't had a moment to myself.

How big is your LO now, and how big was he/she at birth? Brooklyn was 6Lbs 4oz. and 19 inches at birth and is now 14lbs 10 oz. and 25 inches She's on the smaller side which is kind of strange, because my husband and I are 5'10 and 6'3. She's also one of the first born (maybe the fourth?) from this DDC, so I surprised she's such a peanut.
Have they met any big milestones and when?We are crawling, she is everywhere and into everything and it's driving me nuts. I loved when I could just lay her on her playmat and run to the kitchen, but now I find her heading toward power cords and naughty things that she shouldn't be into. She's also saying "Mama". Everyone says it's just babble, but she says it at the best moments, like when I get her from her crib or pick her up.

Planning any other LOs in the future? We talk about it the other day, perhaps before BK turns two we will decide if another one is right, but for now I am swamped with just the one.

Have a recent picture you'd like to share?
I'll try to track on down.

Re: August 2010 Babies- Checking In!

Cute pictures everyone!

Well, it seems we can't catch a break here this week. Yesterday DH lost his job so now we are scrambling trying to figure out what to do! I have a limited income on my own through child support from my ex and unemployment, but it wouldn't even be enough to cover rent here. So, we will likely be moving (luckily our lease is up at the end of the month, we had just re-signed for another year literally the day before but after we found out we told the management and they were understanding and let us cancel it). I have no idea where to move to! Just a little overwhelmed to say the least...
