Apr. 7th, 2005 @ 03:21 pm Amira's 3 months!

Well Amira is doing good. She LOVES to talk and talk and talk her baby babble, she has been doing that for some time, but now she is doing that much more frequently. She sleeps pretty well, but she easily gets her days and nights mixed up. Her newest thing is that she likes to wake up at 5 am and talk and talk to us which is adorable, but I wish she would do that at like around 10 am - hahahaha.... ( her talk consists of Ahhh goo, and yeaaaaah, oooohh, gaaa goo etc....) She is getting sooo chunky and I have no idea how much she weighs, but I will find out next month, I will be in for a surprise and I hope she is not as big as her bro was ( he was 18 lbs at 4 months) because that would mean size 3 diapers - hahahaha, honestly I don't care just as long as she is healthy! She hates being on her tummy and does not roll all the way over because that would put her on her stomach, she does go from her back to her side to follow us and keep an eye on where we are. She also watches us intently while we eat and moves her mouth, maybe I will start solids next month - that should be fun! She also LOVES to stand up - we hold her and she occasionally will throw a fit if we do not keep her on her feet - she also loves to sit/stand in her exersaucer for quite some time ( I took some of the cutest pictures of her in it and will post them once we get them developed) & her swing is her favorite place to nap! I have mood swings I like to attribute to PPD on occasion, and I feel more tired than normal - my thyroid usually does wierd stuff at about 3 months postpartum so I am figuring that is what it is ( I need to go to the Doc), other than that I am fine. How is everyone else & their lil ones doing? :-)

I woke up this morning, rolled over and looked at the clock, it said 6:30... I went into see if Aidan was alright, he was still asleep. My mom and I put him to bed last night at around 7:30pm thats 11 hours of sleep. He must have been worn out from all the running around yesterday. Normally he sleeps from 8pm ish to 3am ish, and I was considering that was though the night, but wow.

When Adam was born, he was 7 lbs. 9 oz.. He had his last check-up two weeks ago and he weighed 13 lbs.. He will be 3 months tomorrow.

I have a few questions for everyone!

^What is the average age that a baby learns to roll over?

^When does the line that you get during pregnancy that goes from your belly button down go away?

^How many here are suffering from post-partum depression?

Oh what a day I've had. Actually the last two days have left me feeling like the most incompetent, incapable mother ever! Donovan cries. I know babies cry but I feel like he cries more than others. Everyone says I've spoiled him rotten and that I should just let him cry but honestly I don't feel comfortable with that. But then again, if I don't walk around with him, he has a tantrum. I can't even drive in the car or go to the grocery store without chaos. What am I doing so wrong as a mother that he must cry like this. It's different than his colic. I feel like I don't know my own son. They say mother's know the varying cries their babies have for hunger, fatigue, and pain. But I DON'T!! I can't tell if he's crying bc he's tired or hungry or whatever. It all sounds the same to me. I feel out of touch. I'm so worn out from doing this alone and there are days where I wish my husband were here so badly. Yesterday I had a migraine and I couldn't just close my eyes and sleep it off like I used to do when I got them. I'm sorry to be bitching so much but I feel so overwhelmed. Today I finally just mentally brokedown and luckily my parents and sister were here to help me. Thank buddha for them lol My mom took him and I went and cried my eyes out. I felt guilty that I wanted to be away from him. I wanted to go be alone and cry. So, I did and then I worked out. My sister then took him (she lives across the street) and fed him for me while I showered and ate and relaxed a little. I feel awful to want a break. I feel like I should be able to do this all on my own. But I can't. I'm thankful that he sleeps through the night but during the day its a battle to keep him happy. I love him so much but I feel so lost. Anyway, he's I don't know how many weeks old haha I lost count but I know he's in his second week of being three months old. So he's 3 months two weeks old. Here are some recent pictures...

I heart my mommyCollapse )

YUMM my arm tastes goodCollapse )

What I'm NOT supposed to eat my arm?Collapse )

I'm strongCollapse )

My playmat is da bombCollapse )

More playmat actionCollapse )

rowdykowgirl:

How big is your baby? I thought it would be neat if we all stopped and did a little something...if yall don't want to that's  fine b/c I know most of you are really good about updating and keeping in touch and posting pics, but I'm not...lol.

I thought maybe we all could post past monthly info/pics kinda like...

Babys Name, DOB, Birth Weight, Birth Length and picture. Then do the same for each month - Include a highlight from the month - like a milestone or achievement for that month - Just a thought b/c I'm so very far behind...lol

I haven't gotten the chance to update really - but everything is going just peachy! I adore my lil rowdy baby. He's getting so big - he weighs in at 15lbs10oz and is now 26" long. He's mostly wearing 6-9 mo clothes! I have TONS of pictures and will get some up ASAP! We bought him a walker and he's doing awesome - put him on the porch and he goes backwards all over it. lol. He's drooling like a mad dog - Doc said he may be teething - isn't it a bit early? I started him on a little cereal to supplement his milk b/c he wasn't getting full enough - he does great now. He's been sleeping ALL THE WAY through the ENTIRE NIGHT for almost 2 weeks now - goes to bed between 8 and 9 and doesn't get up until 4 or 5. I was worried at first but the Dr said he's probably trying to hit a growth spurt. He stays up ALL day except for 2 naps...one isn't but an hr, the other is about 2 hrs...otherwise he's up playing. Every AM he sits in his walker an plays and watches cartoons...Any of your children just seem older than what they are? He's not rolling over from his belly yet - but can roll from his back to either side and then from his belly to up on his side, but not over to his back...I swear if he could - he'd be up and running...lol. He's been my little Angel - I was scared/skeptical when I was pregnant being a first time Mom wondering if I made the right choices - but God he's awesome! I've never been this in love with anyone...it's really amazing. He's also been smiling NONSTOP for about a month, started to giggle a little bit but doesn't quite get it - lol. And this past week he really found his voice...he goos and makes all sorts of noises - real convos...lol. He's been such a good baby too *knocks on wood* I mean he doesn't cry a lot - not that loud when he does. He thinks he's a big boy though and wants to sit up when you hold him when he's getting to where he can stay up by himself once you sit him up...(pillows really help too...lol) He's just as content to sit on the floor as he is to be in your arms, his swing, backpack thing or walker...I'm so in love. Thank you guys for all your help and advice pre-baby :) I'll have lots of bragging pictures up soon (hopefully later today) Can't wait to get back in here and start talking again...

How are you Moms doing? I'd love to hear about your babies too, but how are all of you doing? Anyone working or in school? I think I'm going to start some classes this month....

And what's your favorite things to do w/your baby? What really makes them smile? Are they really interested in anything special?

CONGRADS ON ALL YOUR GORGEOUS BABIES!!!

I am 12 weeks old but I am technically not 3 months until next wednesday. Here are my most recent pictures. Mommy doesn't have any after my new haircut that I got this past weekend. It was fun. I got to sit on Daddy's lap and watch cartoons and the other kids in the mirror while this lady cut my hair. Mommy didn't like her much because she kept saying things like, "This baby is too young for a haircut," or "This baby shouldn't even be out of the house yet." I don't know why, I like going to the mall and out to the park with Mommy.

My first cloth diapered butt photos!Collapse )

Well Mommy says she has to check her email now so I better get off her computer.

I know it is a little early for my weekly update but I am not going to have much time the end of this week. My in-laws are coming up for the first time to see the baby so I have to clean. It is the first time they will have seen our house at all and the only time they have visited since the wedding in 2002. I hope that all works out well. It will be the first time for me spending a whole week with them. Lets all hope I live through it or rather that they do.
