Well I've been meaning to do this for so long that I'm not even sure it can be called a 4th tri thread anymore?! A will be 13 weeks on Monday and time is flying by. I love him more and more each week, in fact I think I'm a bit obsessed with him! At 4 weeks he was diagnosed with reflux and we had a rough few weeks sorting out the best treatment but now he is for the most part a very happy little boy who is wonderful to spend time with. He's always had good head control so is only happy sitting or standing in people's laps having a good nose at everything! He is also INCREDIBLY loud and likes to chat away constantly (even in his sleep...). His favourite trick is to wait until I'm on the phone or at a class where someone is saying something to the whole group and then go "WOOOOOOO!!!!!" at the top of his lungs.
I'm having trouble adding photos but will keep trying! How are all the other babies doing?

...hours from when she last woke. This has made me very happy as I'm quite an organised type of person. When she's not asleep or feeding she'll kick around happily on her play mat or just on the floor. Not so keen on her swing which her sister loved. Nights are pretty good too. Isla adores her little sister And helps bring me nappies and Muslins. And shhhs Maya when she's crying. I miss my bump terribly and find myself jealous of people announcing pregnancies so a third at some point isn

E is now 2 weeks. Sleeping and feeding ok and not much else! Loving him more and more each day and his mad facial expressions never cease to amaze me.
We have a bout of thrush making feeding painful, hopefully the treatment will kick in soon, also have a posterior tongue tie which next week I will try and get a referral to get it snipped, other than that all is good!

Aww thanks Lolly!
MrsB Isla looks so proud in that photo, your girls are so gorgeous, what a lovely family. I can never get Alex to smile for a photo!
MrsP E is all squishy still :) I miss that scrunched up stage! Hope the thrush clears soon and the tongue tie is sorted.

Hi all! I was going to start a tri catch up, I miss the daily threads still. Lovely to hear how some of you are doing.
TT A is gorgeous! Glad he's more settled now.
MrsB your girls are lovely, isla sounds like a fab big sister!
KeeP hope the TT snip goes ok and thrush is sorted soon, he's a real cutie :)
S is 17 weeks now, how did that happen?! He had silent reflux which is now under control but had a tough time with him from when he was 3 weeks to just after Christmas. He's amazing now though, like a different baby. He's sleeping amazingly well now - 10-12 hours straight through and in the last week has started self settling for naps! He's rolled a fee times too so right now I'm feeling immensely proud. He's such a smiley little chap now, he totally lights up my life *fluff*

Well done Tina, ive been meaning to start one of these for yonks!
Evelyn is 6 weeks tomorrow! Part of me cant believe how quickl that has gone and part of me can't remember what our lives were like without her!
she is a pretty chilled out baby! tends to have a couple of naps during the day and is alert from 4pm which is great as H can interact with her when he gets home from work. we then take her to bed sometime between 11-1 and she will sleep until 4-5 and go back down after until 8-9ish. If I don't nap during the day I tend to fall asleep on the sofa about 8 for a couple of hours!
she is starting to react to light a lot more and seems to be focusing on our faces which is lovely!
We had a real tough time with breastfeeding. she latched on and fed great the first couple of days, or so i though, but it soon started to hurt and after seeing 3 midwives and a latch expert and tryng everything they suggested, I was dreading feeds, had H helping me latch her on, i was in agony and most times in tears whilst feeding. We persisted for 2 weeks then after chatting with my midwife, decided to express and bottle feed. We are so much happier, i get a lovely cuddle whilst feeding her, she gets my breast milk and there are no tears!
We are getting out a few times a week for coffee dates or to get to the shop which we both really enjoy.
here are a couple of photos

Popcorn I'm so pleased reflux is under control for you too, it makes such a massive difference doesn't it? I felt like I was finally uncovering the real baby who'd been in there all along!
Banzy not another refluxy one! What is going on with our babies?! Glad all is well though and how lovely to see I enjoying her big sister role!
Mrs Bass how cute is Evelyn?! That last photo especially is wonderful!

It's so lovely to see all these lovely squishy babies.
B is 16 weeks tomorrow .
I have to say she is the total opposite to everyone else's second baby! I am definitely finding it much harder this time. She is extremely clingy. All she wants to do is be held which I would love to do but as W has reached the terrible tantruming twos it's not so easy! I do feel guilty though at getting frustrated with her as all she wants is a cuddle and so I have to remind myself that the baby stage goes far too quickly and as much as I want her to learn to settle without me I know I don't want her growing up too quickly!
She is a lovely little girl though and she has the most amazing smile. She loves watching her big sister and has got very strong legs so loves a good kick about on her play mat.
I can't believe how quickly all these babies are growing up, it only feels like two minutes since we were on the tri boards.

I can't believe how quickly our babies are growing! They are all looking gorgeous and it's great to hear how well everyone is doing.
Oliver is 11 weeks now, it's flying by! He's such a happy baby and I absolutely love being a mummy. Day time naps are usually only 45 mins but he will sleep for 3 hours on your chest! Night times are ok, he usually sleeps for 3/3.5 hour stints starting at around 7. We used to always get 4 hours and I'm hoping we will soon be back to that and more. I tend to bring him into bed with me at the second waking but I'd like to get back to sitting up to feed him and putting him back after, must get on the night time thread!
I love seeing how his little personality shows, he's cheeky! Going to start swimming with him at the weekend hopefully. We're going out on Friday evening which will be the first time I've left him....I'm not looking forward to it at all but I know he'll be fine with my mum. I still can't really believe he's here, it's just such an incredible journey xxx
