Lora - I agree - the working mom stuff isn't easy! We drop Molly off at daycare (which is two blocks from our house) at about 7:45. DH and I ride together (I work at a college and he works at a high school that are just down the street from each other). I go to the daycare at lunch to nurse her, then we pick her up around 5:15. Needless to say, that is our favorite time of day! The evenings go so fast now with spending time with Molly, feeding her, fixing bottles for the next day, washing pump parts, dinner, laundry, etc. We really treasure our weekends with her (which also go too fast). My house is a wreck a lot of the time, but I'd rather spend that time with the baby.

Kaj- Yes! your nights sound like mine! It is stressful trying to fit everything in. Plus I need to go to bed by 10 the latest b/c I get up at 5:30 on the days I'm in the office. I have to say making all the bottles for daycare is my least favorite chore. Doesn't take long but I dread it for some reason. Maybe b/c it's the last thing I do and I'm tired. Also need to work in picking out Evan's clothes, my clothes (which usually need ironing) and packing a bfast and lunch for me. I try to make dinner on the days I'm home b/c I have a bit more time and then we just do leftovers on my office days. Definitely a balance though!!! And yes, I have no desire to go out and do adult-only things onthe weekend...that's our time with our little Ev-Dawg. He goes where we go

Not a lot...but enough to still be in the same percentile. Cian was 11lb 6oz today (2nd%) and 24.6 inches tall (10th%)...so that was good! I think I want to go see a new pedi though. I had being treated like I don't know anything. I wish this part of my life was easy...

Lmohall our babies are close to the same size...at our 4month appointment they weighed Evan: 11lb14oz and 23 3/4" and Taryn: 11lb4oz and 23 3/4".
Great job on the growth :-)

lmohall - yes, congrats on the growth! GL in your search for a new pedi - I'm sure there is one out there that you will end up loving
lora - DON'T feel bad about using jarred baby food!!! It's perfectly healthy for babies & you have enough to worry about! Did you have fun at your sister's wedding?!
loren - sorry about Kline's skin. Did they recommend anything to put on it? My niece had eczema really bad when she was an infant. I know they used Aquaphor lotion and for a short time they used a steroid cream from the dermatologist...I forget how old she had to be to use that. Hope his itchies go away!
OK, DUH! I just read Gena's post about the Aveeno bath soak...sounds good, too. I may even try it, as Evan has more sensitive skin. Just bought the Burt's Bees baby wash to try with him. I can only wash his hair once a week, otherwise his scalp starts flaking
AFU - went for our shots today. Booo. the boys did ok & only cried for a few seconds. Nicholas weighs 20 pounds 5 oz and is 27.25 inches long. Evan weighs 20 pounds 4 oz and is 27.75 inches long. Growing faster than weeds, they are! Time for food, so gotta go. Have a great day everyone!

IMO - wow Cian is a peanut. Why do you say they treated you like you knew nothing? Gotta love doctors.
Heather - OMG - you are growing basketball players

Heather: how old are your boys? They are huge, especially for twins! Way to go!!! More like Defence football players!
IMO AND GENA: You have such cute little peanuts!!!!!
Kline was 16 lbs yesterday at the dr and 26 1/2 inches long.....75 % weight and 95 % height and his head was only 50% , he has a small peanut head like me!
He has been sleeping for over 2 hours and he slept well last night....he hasn't even moved during his nap so maybe all the aquafor is helping!!!!???? Hope so!!! Maybe if he gets his itching under control he won't need the woombie! Thanks for all the tips on the exema....I'll try to oatmeal bath...I already use the oatmeal soap on him and that seemed to help...but the dr said don't use any or very little soap at all. Hopefully we get it under control, I'd hate to put him on steroids!
Lora: I'm sure organic baby food is as good as home made!
I'm off to tap class tonight, wish me luck, I hope my bum/boobs don't bother me..........can't wait to see my huge ass giggling in the mirror! ;-/

Calley~ He is a peanut! People don't recognize it though because he's tall(er) and skinny...so I think it throws people off. It's amazing how many people think that he's BIG. And about the pedi....it's just the way they talk to you about the charts..."this is the way we want it to go"...HELLO...I MAJORED in MATHEMATICS!! I know about GRAPHS and STATISTICS! I feel like they don't take the time to get to know you because they don't have the time. That it's all about numbers. I understand the numbers...I would just like part of it to have the human element. I'm rambling...and I don't think I'm making any sense at all. Sorry.
Loren~ Have fun at the tap class!
Lora~ I wouldn't worry about not making your own. It's work...and if I was working out of the home, I'd probably buy.

Hey...don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but it crossed my mind when Lora was talking about dinner & leftovers...
Is anyone interested in an Easy Recipe thread? We could post quick & easy meal ideas (I love using my crock pot, as we always have leftovers from those meals). Sometimes the hardest part about making dinner is trying to figure out what we're going to have.
