I've been gone for a bit(just plain busy), but I have been wondering how all of you are doing???

Our little guy is now 7 months old and going through the crawling/furniture grazing part of life. I am constantly throwing pillows and padding all over the floor in hopes to protect him from every scratch and bump. He has started some solids, but is mainly breastfed and he still takes one to two feeds a night. We are working on the sleeping through the night business. I am loving every second of having him in my life.

How are your little ones?

I haven't been on the forums much lately either - just too busy! Our rainbow baby is now a healthy, rambunctious 2 year old. Looking back, my 2nd pregnancy seems a distant memory, but at the time it was fraught with anxiety and stress. For those of you currently going through a subsequent pregnancy, try to look forward to the wonderful times to come.

She is gorgeous! You must be having a blast with her!

I am still a pretty anxious mama, but thankfully I am pleasantly distracted by our little guy! Every morning I wake up and still can't believe he is finally here.

You both have beautiful little ones!

I can't believe my little princess is 3 months old today.

Things have gone so well this time that preeclampsia and prematurity almost seem like a distant memory (almost). :D It's been such a wonderful and easy experience. I really enjoyed a somewhat normal birth - a scheduled C section - and all the little things that have been normal and successful since then. I feel so blessed to have my babies.

Oh my gosh! Too adorable! Love seeing all the happy healthy lil' ones! I know they were all hard won fights! :)

Our lil' one is 2 months and some change and just starting to smile... she is one tough audience! She's just broke the 9lb mark- oy it goes too fast.

Our 2.5 year old adores her and I think she adores him always watching for him... maybe to be able to brace for the big huge hug that is about to come! :) Watching their relationship grow is so very bittersweet to see as we very much miss our eldest who we know watches over her lil' sibs.
