    Megan and Baby Melody

    Melody is 5 weeks 4 days old and weighs 12.5 lbs now!! she is also 22 inches long.

    She now mimics me and my hubby when we stick our tongues out at her and she smiles more at me

    My only struggle is waiting for my 6 week check up next week so that I can be cleared to have sex which I missed dearly.

    This week I think I am going to go and get my hair cut, that will be my brief me time lol

    For sure feeling Fall here in WI it's been getting down in the 30's at night

    Hi Megan -

    Hope you have a pic of Melody sticking out her tongue - too cute!

    I attended postpartum lunches at the hospital after I has my daughter. The first group was birth to 5 weeks. The second was 6 to 12 weeks. When you entered the luncheon the nurse said "Welcome to Sex!" Seemed to be the topic of most discussions.

    Carson will be 6 months on monday! Can't believe its gone by so fast. He will be getting his check up that day and I will be able to give stats then

    Firsts: Carson is still working on his little tooth nub and now he is working on trying to crawl. He has gotten the hands and knees and rocking thing just hasen't figured out how to put it all together yet. Its so cute though because he gets so excited. He can scoot to the side and backwards and in circles just not forward yet. Oh and we bought him a jumparoo thing yesterday. He loves it! (played in it for almost 2 hours just bouncing up and down and wriggling and playing with toys)

    Monday-ish moans: umm still really smokey off and on and so asthma still not so happy. Out of the 10 fires though most of them have been mostly contained if that makes sense. Our air has been at hazardous levels for about 2 weeks now. We had one good day yesterday but the smoke came back today and back at bad levels again. bleh. To the point that people have to wear masks outside. The DOH is handing out small particulate masks as a result.

    Doing for myself: umm I bought myself a new pair of work pants lol

    Fall: we are feeling smoke lol. Its cold at night but warm in the day time.

    I also can't believe 6 months has gone by! I have heard about celebrating 1/2 birthday's, are you going to have a celebration?

    Jumparoo = Lifesaver for me at the same age. Seemed like I could not get dinner made when my daughter began to be mobile. She loved it and I could concentrate in the kitchen.

    Yikes - The smoke sounds miserable. Hoping for rain and clear air.

    we won't be doing 1/2 birthdays but on a more fun note. We are going to be starting solids (he has been doing rice milk for about 4 weeks but otherwise has only had mommys milk). We are going to start vegetables this weekend!. On a not so fun note, my husband and cousin (who is currently staying with us and he 2 children who stay part time) both are sick and little man has a little bit of a cold now too.
