Hey I am so happy to hear from you. I have been busy on my break from school. Actually the whole house is just getting better from some virus. My poor Tj ran 102 fever for 5 days including all of Christmas and most of New Years. It was miserable for him, I hated to see him sick. But he is doing so well, he is 16lbs and 6 oz. Actually just learned to roll but he is sitting up pretty great. He is still a little spastic but maybe he will learn how to control that soon. I sometimes worry about how slow he is going but maybe he is just being a lazy baby. He is such a happy baby, he loves to be held though. ALL OF THE TIME!! He is eating 3x a day solids and it is loving it. But still loves his bottles. Waking up one time throughout the night and sleeping in his crib like a champ. Makayla and Tj really keep me busy. Seline, I totally understand about the mess and the constant laundry. I sometimes want to run away from the house b/c of the mess. But I start back to school on Monday so I will be busy again. Renee good luck on your trip. You are brave, flying with baby! So nice to hear from both of you.I have been missing you ladies. I kept thinking about posting and then TJ would cry! Oh the life of a mom. WOuld not trade it for nothing in the world. Talk to everyone soon. I did post a couple of pics of Tj.

Hey ladies!!!

I don't think I've posted here in forever but I lurk all the time. My life is so full right now. I went back to work in December and it's been a struggle to adjust. I miss Kaiden so badly while I'm at work. His dad is staying home with him until March and I am so jealous!! He just turned 4 months old so his current milestone is holding his head up like a little pro. He's starting to try to roll but hasn't accomplished that yet. He's a little over 13 pounds now. We are starting to introduce cereal so we'll see how that goes. I love all the pictures. Your babies are gorgeous!

OH how I miss everyone! I hate that with the new ivillage has made it a ghost town EVERYWHERE. 2 of the boards I was on jumped ship to FB and I like that I can keep up with them there. I miss my rainbow mommas!

WOW Look how big all our rainbows are getting! And so cute! I love seeing everyone's picture. Oliver is doing good. He's 16wks now. He has started to smile all the time and coo. He did roll over from his tummy to his back this week also. He's loving his jumperoo and saucer too. He likes to look at this brothers and sister. Calla is over the moon in love with him and always asks to hold him. The boys just want him to get bigger so they can wrestle! Elliott does like to show off all his animals to oliver - about 1 in from his face! Oliver's still no where near sleeping decent at night. Actually he's been up more like every 2-3 hrs yet. I'm not getting much for sleep! I did start him on cereal 1x a day and I'm not sure it's helping much.

This week has been very bittersweet. Tomorrow is Abby's 1st birthday in Heaven. I'm dealing with a lot of guilt. I'm so sad and miss her so much, but yet if she was here, Oliver wouldn't. I just don't know how to manage those feelings. And it's hard to believe it's been 1 year since I kissed my little baby girl. Sigh. I know all you here know exactly how I feel.

anyway-Here are some pics of Oliver. I put them on my new blog that I made. I took them this week! You'd never believe he was ever a preemie! LOL!

Hi ladies! What beautiful babies everyone has!!!

Noah is going to be 6 months old this week and time has just gone by WAY too quickly! I only have a few more months of mat leave left and then I'll have to leave my precious boy. I haven't even begun to think about daycare yet because it gives me heart palpitations.

Speaking of hearts, Noah's is doing great so far! His last appointment was in November and all was well, we go back this Wednesday for his 6 week check-up again and hopefully all is still well. Last time his blood pressure was a little bit elevated so they were considering putting him on medication but were going to wait and see if it regulated itself. The medication would be temporary just to give his heart a break so that it would have time to heal completely.

Noah is doing great as far as milestones go. he sits on his own, has rolled over a couple of times (both ways) and he just loves standing up. He's a super happy boy and an absolute joy. On top of it all he's a great sleeper. he just moved out of my room this week and into his own crib. The transition went off without a hitch!

At his check up this week he weighed 19lbs and was 26.25 inches long. Here's a picture of him from last week.

So good to read everyones updates here, and to see all your cute babies!! I miss all you! I do lurk but never find the time to post since Selah arrived:) She has kept me busy at 6 weeks she had still not gained since birth..so she was only 5.5 pounds and her blood gases were off too, So she stayed in the hospitals PICU for 3 days. After switching her to the bottle she started to thrive. at 10 weeks she reached 7 pounds and now she is 11 weeks and 8 pounds! so she is doing much better! She has reflux pretty bad..so its a constant puke fest around here! She takes meds for it but they dont do much. She is a super smiley baby when her tummy isn't acting up. We are so in love with her, even despite the fact that she has been our most 'needy' baby she just brings us nothing but Joy. I feel guilty for spending so much time just holding and loving on her when I have so many other kids to give attention too as well, its been a huge adjustment.

Wow, so much time has flown right on by!! All these babies are beautiful!

Breanna is 5 months old now, eating baby food 2x a day, sleeping through the night, rolling all over the place, trying to scoot around, up to about 12 lbs.. She's still kind of small but dr says everything with her is great. She goes for her 6 month appt on 2/17 -- the shots are horrible but we make it through!

Here's my baby girl now :) -- this picture just makes me laugh, lol. I love her so much.
