8 lbs 13 oz and 20" long. The doctor says she's top of the charts for height and weight...my son was the same. I dunno what's in my breastmilk, haha.

Hey ladies! How is everyone doing? Olive is doing great and turns 13 weeks on Monday. At her 8 week check up she was 10 lbs 6oz and 23 in long! She rolled over for the first time on Monday and is starting to laugh out loud, I love it! I can't believe how big she's getting and I wish I could freeze time. I went back to work this past Tuesday since being off for 11 weeks and it was sooo hard. I made it through the week and I hope for it to get better. I HATED leaving Isabella and Olive:( I hope you all are doing well:)

Riley had his 2 month checkup last Tuesday. He was 13.12 lbs and 24 inches long. This was the first visit that the doc didn't have any issues with anything. Got his shots and was all smiles the next day. Yay for a happy baby!

It's kinda funny because he's only 3 lbs heavier than his birth weight but he's still bigger than most babies his age. lol

Two more weeks and I'm supposed to go back to work- we have 26 wk guaranteed maternity leave. I'm debating on taking another 2 weeks, opinions?

I was going to do the same thing because I was really having a hard time coming to terms of leaving both girls and going back to work. I decided to go back when I said I would (after 11 weeks) and this is week two and it's much better! I say take as much time as you need but I know I knew I would have to go back some time so why not get it started, lol. Good luck!

I think I'm going to go back- I just feel like a terrible person. I want to spend all my time with them and I'm heartbroken that ill have to be away from them 30 hrs a week. Ugh it sucks!

I went back after 8 weeks (couldn't afford any longer) and it was hard but it gets easier! It helps that I only work part-time and that the kids are with DH while I work. At least I don't have to leave them with a sitter.



P.S.Here's the most recent pic of Aria -
