Hi all- happy new year!!
suga, michele hope those babies are loosening up- poor dears! congrats on getting the twins to sleep in their cribs- i hope the travel didn't get them off schedule too much! I think you are a real trooper to have done another road trip with them-
Pulman had a nice holiday- saw both families- 2 hours to dh's, then 4 hrs to mine- and all were mostly on good behavior. we're doing bf, pumping, and formula and he seems to be gaining weight- he's getting some chubby cheeks and is finally fitting in the cloth diapers without too many leaks.- we're doing disposables at night as he gets very upset when wet- i mean, who wouldn't!
jomae- how's the weather down there? happy warm summer i hope!
I love all the new photos- beautiful babies- and oh such mean mommies making them wear little santa suits!!heeheehee!!!
sounds like everyone is progressing well- save for some reflux and poopin issues--when you talk about spitting up- how much is it? I was told that some is normal- is this truly a reason to be concerned? how can you tell your babes have reflux? Tammy- so sorry about Gavin needing surgery-
rio- glad you're back! I getcha on the bf-- it's hard. I'm pumping to see how much I get for him, bfing morning and at night, and i'm supplimenting with formula due to the weight issues, but now i'm finding it hard to produce more milk to meet his needs. i don't want to take away the formula and risk that he'll stop thriving, so I guess i'll just keep up with all 3- he gets about 8-10oz formula/day and the rest bmilk.
Suga- you're feeding your girls 6oz or so per feeding? how do you know how much to feed them? When did you start giving them more? Pulman gets 4oz/ every 3hrs during the day ( when i can measure) then I don't know how much when he bfs
WHEW it's chilly here. Obama is coming to Baltimore this weekend, his train will pass right by my house, and unless he's waving off the back like they used to do, i don't think i'll see him. the whole region is buzzing about inauguration day!
tammy- great to hear from you! gavin is a cutiepie!
how are all the mommies feeling? we've talked about the babies, but how are the mommas? I had a bit of a rough patch, but am feeling good now-
wow- all the talk about siblings for our beans- awesome!!!! i know it's pretty important for us AMA's to get on the bandwagon- it's amazing how soon some of you wonderful women are getting started on #2 .
dh & I don't have any frosties, so it would be from scratch- I plan to finish school, and perhaps at the end of grad school ( before I lose my great insurance) I may try 1 more time- that would be about 1 1/2 yrs from now (42!!)- we'll see- dh is happy with a singleton, and adoption is still on the table for us as well. My sibs are adopted, i like the idea of having more than 1- however it works- the universe will figure it all out. I wish we could just have one of those happy accidents and wind up with a BFP!!!!
Pulman now weighs about 9 lbs- he's doing well, is very strong, and is grasping at things like mad- he loves the dangling toys I hang over him. oh and boy does he kick!
I promise not to be such an absent friend in future- I guess the wind was just taken out of my sails. Oh- and I just finished my 1st post baby sculpture installation! it's a 2 person show at Loyola College- I couldn't have done it without dh & some wonderful friends who looked after Pulman so I could get in the studio and get some work done- it was exhausting, though!
ok- that's it for the very long post
LOVE TO ALL!!!!
