Hello everyone!!

Sorry I haven't been on here at all lately. I have been so busy with three kids of which as you know one is a newborn. Jaylen is doing great he is over 10lbs. now and just the cutest little thing. I have his hospital pictures now that I can share and also some new ones. I feel so behind on what is going on in your lives. Please update me if you can on what you and your baby are doing, and how old your baby is now.

Jaylen is now 7 weeks old and for the first time it doesn't seem to be going by quickly like with my girls. I am savoring every moment of it since this is our last baby. I am so thrilled that I get to be a mom to a baby boy. Having a son is quite different then it was with my girls. I get peed on a lot more. LOL He is spitting up quite a bit after every meal and I just read online that he may be getting too much breastmilk. I am still breastfeeding and it is going great. I guess doing it with Jayla for 11 months made it easy to do it again this time around. He is mainly on the breast, he has had breastmilk in a bottle a handful of times when I needed to be out of the house and he was home with his daddy or nana.

Pics posted below in another post.

How are you doing? How is your little one(s)?

I need to get a new siggy!!!

Jay

Hi!

I love the pictures:) It is great to hear from you! I am glad you are doing well!

Theodor was born on March 27th and will be a month old tomorrow. He was 10 pounds at birth and even though he went down to 9 pounds and had to be readmitted to the hospital for 5 days due to jaundice, he is now doing great and is at over 12 pounds!!

Unfortunately he is colicky so we get a lot of screams and tears but that should be over in about 6-8 weeks which DH and I are VERY happy about.

He is getting better at sleeping although a long stretch for him is still about 2 hours, thankfully breastfeeding normally calms him down and being in the wrap can help him sleep as well.

You can see some pictures of him here,

Hey Jay!! It's good to see you! Your lil' boy is so precious!!!!!!

My boy is 4 months now. And growing so fast I can't believe it! He is so plump and so interactive now! He smiles all the time and keeps "talking" to us in his weird little gugu-dada language... I'm so in love!!

Hi Jay! I was wondering about you lately as well. Glad to hear everything is going well and you're enjoying your DS so much. He is super cute! Keep taking lots of photos, you can never have too many pics.

My Ethan is almost 3 weeks old, and seems so different already from how he was as a newborn. Alex is such a good big brother and is not jealous at all. He is getting plenty of Daddy time while I tend to Ethan's needs (which is usually him wanting me to hold him.) This newborn phase is so hard, I forgot how challenging it is. But I keep telling myself it will pass, and to enjoy the snuggle time as much as I can, he won't want to snuggle when he's older. :)

Keep us posted on how you and the family are doing whenever you can! :)

Jay, good to hear from you again :-) What a gorgeous little man you have there! I love the pic of the two of you together - it's so sweet.

My baby is no longer a baby - Teddy is 14 months old now (where did the time go!) and doing mostly well, apart from his fussy eating.

P.S. Julie, love your new siggy!
