Hey darkestlight everyone has been so worried about how you, Alexis, and armyprincess and Jeremy are doing. Maybe you could give us an update. I am so glad to hear from you and that everything is going good with Alexis. Yay for Alexis reaching 4 months!!!
JT is 3 1/2 months but a lot of people think he is at least already 5 months because he is a long baby! Everything is going good. So glad to hear from you.
Good to be back and see everyone's new additions. AJ is going for his 4 month appointment next week, but we have to go this morning because he woke up running fever. He eats about 4ozs also- that's pretty normal. Take care.
So good to hear from you! Yay for little Alexis and her 4 month birthday! Cash will be 4 months on Nov 1. Everyone thinks he is 5 or 6 months b he's long and chunky and has really good head control, but you nver can tell about things like that. He drinks 6oz about every 3 to 3 & 1/2 hours except at night when he will go about 8 to 9 hours without eating. My friend's LO is still only drinking 4 oz and the ped said that he was perfectly healthy and was developing just fine. So I wouldn't worry too much - each babe is different. And like Tasia said - now that we know you are ok - have you heard from Army Princess and Jeremy?
Lol, ladybugbob everyone thinks JT is around 5 or 6 months too for the same reasons except he isn't that chunky. Yesterday he was compared to an 8 month old and he looked about the same length but a little chunkier then him.
Everyone thinks Medina is at least 6 months old and I got those comments about 2 weeks ago!! She starting rolling from back to front occassionally starting from the end of the 3rd month. Now it's non-stop and she loves to be on her stomach heaps. She's with me now and wants to type with me, how cute.
We were at the dr's today because I thought she may have an ear infection but it is probably just ear pain from teething. Medina measured up as 68 cm (26.8 in) and 7.03 kg (15.5 lbs). She's in the top 3% for a baby for her height and our dr told us she'll be quite tall, at least 175 cm based on his experience as a dr (Papa is 183 cm).
Darkestlight: I breastfeed fully and Medina has been drinking a bit less. My dr said teething may be the cause of it. Also babies go through phases as well.
Good to see everyone is doing well. Pyper is 4 and a half months and 9 lbs 12 oz and 22 1/2 in long. She is a peanut. I was strictly breastfeeding but since she is soo small Dr wanted me to give her a bottle after nursing her so I only like nurse her twice a day now and then she gets formula and I pump also. Very depressing but I gotta do whats right for her. She rolls over like a pro and holds her head well. We also started rice cereal which is a nice mess. She doesnt want to take her thumb out of her mouth long enough to take a bite. Pyper eats 4 oz's at a time from a bottle. Every once in a while she will eat up to 7 or 8... not sure how it fits in there.
