annashope - LOVE the new pic of Paul! He is such a cutie! I'm sorry you still aren't getting much sleep, ugh! Hope things calm down for you soon (and I must agree, I don't know how the twin mommies do it either!)
rio - Damn, you've had some rotten luck too! Glad Lizzy is doing well and hope your doggie troubles go away soon!
Gina - the boys are adorable! Glad you posted some new pics!
ashley - Athena is a beauty! Hope you both are doing well.
blair - YAY for making it to 32 weeks! You are doing great and must be thrilled to keep on plugging along!
Kat - Glad you're going to go to the hospital. And I agree with others - don't push things this weekend. Honestly you'll need so little for the baby in the hospital, do the bare minimum this weekend.
lou - I'm so glad things with Chloe are going well! I loved that pic of her with your hubby. Soooo darn cute!! And Maribel's doing well. She had 2 months in between appointments so her next one is 11/21. I'm not sure how much she weighs now but she has to be over 14 pounds, cause she's a little chunker!
EOE, I read every day and hope you're all doing well!
AFM, things are going well here. Maribel is just a bundle of laughs and smiles so I'm loving every minute of being home with her. She's finally slept through the night a few times so she's headed in the right direction with her sleep habits. She often sleeps from about 9pm-430am but there are nights she still gets up for a bottle in between (around 2 or 3am.) She's fully on formula now so while I'm really missing breastfeeding, she seems to be doing great with it (and like others, I'm a huge fan of the Dr Brown bottles.) I didn't want to wean her off of the breast yet but I'm having issues with my joints so needed to start taking pain meds and meet with a rheumatologist next week (I have a long history of autoimmune disorders so doc's not sure if I've acquired another one...ugh!) Anyways, Maribel was eating lots and often and would mimic us eating when she sat at the table with us for dinner so we started her on some runny rice cereal at dinnertime about a week & a half ago. She did great with it. Then yesterday I made her some acorn squash and she had some of that for dinner too. Here are some pics, one with DH at 15 weeks and one from yesterday with her squash/rice cereal mixture all over her face, hands, high chair, etc. (Sorry if one of the pics is huge, I resized it in photobucket and it's still enormous...grrr!)
