Spring 2013 babies and mama's
How are they doing? How are *you* doing?
(Bronwen helped with his diaper cover, so its on kind of sideways, lol)
The Wolf-man is growing and so adorable! Such a calm, sweet baby (all but one of the others were "high needs" and 2 were colicky, yikes!) and the only things that make him cry are having the hiccups and being stuck in the carseat when we drive anywhere. Dare I say he is a great sleeper too? At night nurses and falls right back to sleep...very different from all but one of my others. Almost makes me want just one more, until I remember how miserable pregnancy is for me and that our house is already super busy. He was 13lbs at last check, and just started rolling from belly to back. Still waiting for that first baby giggle..he smiles, squeals, and makes all sorts of cute noises but hasn't giggled yet but I'm guessing it will happen any day now. The other kids love him and argue over who's turn it is to hold him. The older 2 do a great job holding him so I can cook and even shower (!) alone, Linus and Vio are still sort of wiggly but do so with help. DH just started his summer course, so he is only gone for class now one night a week which is nice. We are all busy as school is done and we have a summer full of fun things planned. No vacation this year (going away for longer than a day or 2) due to Andy's school but are going on plenty of day trips and as soon as I can get my butt over to the township building, a pool pass.
How is everyone else doing? What cute things are your baby's up to these days?Married to my love since August 2001
My much loved, well thought out, chosen for meaning named crew:
Sebastian Elihu (7/02)
Bronwen Eliza (2/04)
Linus Ezra Graham (9/06)
Violet Leona (1/09)
and one named with help of nameberry, Wolfgang Levi (3/13)!
Always missing our Felix Emmanuel (10/10-10/10)

I've only posted a couple of times, but I'm always reading, and I want to add my little May baby to this thread! Rory Eliza is two weeks old today (which is making me sad now that I realize it!) She's my 2nd baby out of the four I have to be pretty colicky, but I think we're tackling it with little doses of colic water. She was 10lbs 4oz at birth, and was up to 10lbs 9oz last week, so we're pretty pleased with that! I'm starting to adjust to having 4 kids, 3 1/2 and under, but we're still trying to figure out a routine that suits us all.

What a cutie!
Jude & I are doing well. He's pretty demanding but things are starting to settle down. He's 11 & half weeks now & weighs 13lb! Has started sleeping longer periods at night (doubt that will last though). He plays now, smiles & gurgles alot, & is trying hard to roll. Motherhood is not quite as I expected (how could it be?) but feel I am slowly getting used to it & making my own other through the hard days.Mum to Jude Michael

Wolfie is too cute! I'd post Roo's photo but boyfriend is slightly paranoid and really doesn't want me to so...
Roo (Aphrodite as we've changed her name to) is 10 weeks and three days old. She weighs exactly 11 lbs, and is very healthy and (obviously) perfect in every way. She's smiling a lot, and making these cute little noises that can sound kind of giggle-ish, but it's not quite a laugh yet. Adorable though. She's not sleeping through the night yet, she wakes up at least one time during the night. And she's refusing the bottle, so we're chained together. It's a bit frustrating as there are some things I'd like to do on my own but I'm not able to yet. I've tried going to yoga classes a few times but have been called up by boyfriend halfway through with Baba screaming her lungs out because she wants food. I'm tired... But, back to Roo. Apart from her screaming every time she sees or senses a bottle, she's an extremely calm and serene baby. She can lie for the longest time just looking at lights and shadows moving, her mobiles, my jewelry. She seems to be a quite advanced baby; she's rolled over once from her tummy to her back, and she's trying very very hard to do it again, and she's able to hold her neck up for quite some time. So I'm a proud Mama! We spend a lot of time on the floor together, playing, reading, singing. I've also been walking around with her favourite teddy inside my shirt for the past few days to make it smell like me so she's comforted when she's in her bed alone. One of her favourite activities is pulling my hair, so I wear it up a lot which is strange and unusual, but better than having her pull it all out. Her daddy does his fair share of the "work", they usually do bath time together, and he takes her in the morning after the first feed so I can get some more sleep. He's started working a little, but nothing big yet, so I guess I'm rather lucky having him around as much as I do. I'm almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight, the rest I'm going to let be on my body as I was underweight before. Most of my clothes still fit which is hugely exciting, I was sure all my jeans and trousers would have to go and live in a charity shop. I feel pretty great, I just wish my breasts would get some rest, that's all really...My darling Marian Illyria Aphrodite, March 2013 & Little Bunny (a girl!) due 9th of February 2014

With you on the boobs needing a rest! Although Jude will take expressed milk from a bottle so I do get some time out. Breastfeeding has been a huge challenge, Jude had a tongue tie tht wasn't spotted & cut till 5 weeks, his latch is still poor so I'm very sore. We are persevering though (I'm far too lazy & stubborn to make up bottles). He loves light too, and light fittings & wallpaper a his favourite thing, it cheers him up even when he's screaming! We joke he's going to be an interior designer when he's older.
Was just looking through my old threads when we were trying to pick a name. So strange! I felt really defensive of my name choice, a few people weren't keen on Michael, though I didn't say it was his daddies name. Looking back I know we made the right choice, he could never be Elijah & I knew that as soon as I held him.
I won't post a picture either as in a bit paranoid. I let babycentre use a silly picture of Jude in a blog & the daily mail stole it (& lots of other ladies pics) & used it in an article on their website.Mum to Jude Michael
