Ladies, I love the pics of all of the little ones!
Mellow - Marlo is a doll! I'm sorry she's having a tough time right now. Hopefully things will normalize for her soon.
Lou - Hmmm, that is an odd thing. I probably wouldn't switch her formula unless she's showing signs of discomfort from it - vomiting, regurgitation, diarrhea, etc. Maribel would regurgitate her first two formulas but then started the Gerber Good Start Gentle and that's been wonderful. But since Maribel will eat anything and everything I can't imagine her not interested in eating. Hopefully Chloe's appetite kicks in soon and you can rid of that worry. Keep us posted though!
Gina - I can't believe your boys are going for their 9 month checkup already. How can that be? They're so adorable btw!
Bliss - Lots of sleeping is perfectly normal and pretty soon Evelyn's going to spend more and more time awake. She's so darn cute!
AFM, life's great! Maribel is an absolute joy! Sometimes sleeps through the night and sometimes she doesn't LOL. Her nap schedule recently changed to 3-4 catnaps a day (only about 20-30 minutes each) so that makes getting everything done a little more challenging but that's ok. She's so much fun when she's awake, I can't complain. And she's stuck to me like a glue stick now. Separation anxiety has entered the building.
Doctor said it's perfectly normal at this age but it is a little hard when we visit family and she only wants me to hold her or cries when I leave the room. She cut her first tooth this week and the second one is about to break through any day now. At yesterday's doc visit she weighed 19.15 pounds and was 28 inches long (about 97th percentile for both) so she's my little hulk. She doesn't like to crawl forward yet so she crawls backwards, rolls, and spins around on her back to get to where she wants to be. She loves to sit and play with her toys and she loves when we hold her hands and let her walk around the house. She could do that for hours (much to the chagrin of my lower back.) Here are a couple pics of her from the past two weeks - giving me that yummy, gummy smile and swimming with her best friend.
