How old is your little one? 2 months old today!

How is he/she doing? We're still struggling to manage Brody's reflux and get him comfortable but the good news is it's not affecting his growth. He is almost 12 lbs, up from 5.14lbs at birth! He looks like a little linebacker. LOL He doesn't sleep a whole lot and cries most of the time unless he's being held/bounced but he's thriving so that's what really counts.

How is Mama doing? I feel fine physically, other than extremely tired because I can virtually NO sleep these days. Mentally... ugh. It's hard to feel good about myself these days. I've not been able to get back into a regular running pattern yet and some days I don't even have enough time to myself to take a shower! I know it will get better but for now I'm just getting by.

Anything else? Hoping hurricane Sandy doesn't wipe out our Halloween. Lily, my two-year-old DD, is so excited to dress up and we've been practicing "trick or treat." Hoping it dries up enough by Wednesday to get out for a bit and take her and Brody around to the neighbors. Mommy will of course have to sample all the candy and make sure it's safe. ;)

How old is your little one? 8 weeks old today! I can't hardly believe it! How is he/she doing? She has decided to boycott napping! She does sleep for a six hour stretch every night, but the 10-20 minute cat naps through the day make it nearly impossible to get anything done! How is Mama doing? I'm doing great! I feel like I need to do something for myself though, even if I just go get a hair cut! Baby wants to nurse constantly (growth spurt maybe?) so unless i'm holding her she's not happy, she's not even fond of DH right now. =( Anything else? I'm already starting to make myself sick thinking about going back to work. I have four weeks left and I know I need to spend that time enjoying the kiddies instead of dreading what's to come!
