1 pound in 2 weeks!

What a long day but a good day! Today was the 1st time I have had to take the kids to the dr alone. Todd has ALWAYS been there to go w/ me. It is so much easier to have 2 adults but he couldn't make it today so Mommy had to attempt it all by herself. This meant waking up at 6am to get ready, then pump for 20 min, followed by BFing the boy, giving the girls their bottles & then breakfast. All while keeping the kids clean & ready to go before 8:45am. Yep, I did it! Let me pull out my golden laso & my invisible jet. Call me WONDER WOMAN! I feel like a super hero today!

Not only did we make the appt, we actually got there EARLY by 30 minutes. Our pedi is so great that she saw us immediately. The girls ears have cleared up. I mentioned that Gabi has been super clingy the past few days so she checked out their molars. Gabi is trying to cut all 4 at the same time. Sofi caught Mommy by surprise & has already cut 1 molar. Ian is still a little behind but is working on tooth #7 & #8.

I asked if we could weight check Ian b/c he was a bit behind the last time we went in. Nurse Charlotte proudly announced he was 20lb 2oz! My boy gained 1lb 3oz in 2 weeks! GOOOOO MAMA & IAN! As a matter of fact, I got scolded (in the kindest of ways, lol) & was told to "back off" the food. I guess I shouldn't be putting butter on everything, huh? KIDDING! I'm just glad my boy is doing well w/ weight again.

We also made the best of Easter w/ the sad news we had about my uncle. The kids loved their Easter baskets that the Easter Bunny brought them (eh hem...Grandma & Papap actually but SHHHHH, don't tell anyone).

WTG Ian!! Glad to hear things are looking up for all 3 kiddos! I am glad you guys had a little bright spot in your sad Easter day.... What are the popums in their baskets? What is in the tubes? Looks pretty cool!!!

The popums are like rice cakes w/ yogurt. The kids didn't like them but I sure do, LOL! The tubes are sunscreen.

It's so funny to read your posts about Ian because his weight is following the exact same curve that Marcus' did! We have skinny mini boys!

And we did 4 molars at once too. And that was only with 1 kid. I def. call you super woman!! If the kids get to be teething monsters, google Amber Teething Necklace. Those are the only things that worked for Marcus. He got molars and I didn't even know after we bought that thing!

Astrid,
I have a friend here locally that just found out she is expecting quads. She already has a 3.5 year old. I just found out from another friend yesterday and have not had a chance to talk with her yet. She mentioned that she wanted to talk to me about it for support. I do have five kiddos but 5 kids ranging in age or twins alone do not compare to HOM. Any advice you have to pass along? I'm on JM (kwilder)-April 2008 PR if you want to PM me.
