I agree but I feel like this is at least a step in the right direction. I don't care about celeb gossip but hopefully we get some of the other forums back eventually. I would love for N&CE to come back too!!!
It sounds like normal 2 year old behavior to me. It sounds like you are handling it beautifully, and I doubt that anything you are or aren't doing is causing pushing and hitting. I have yet to meet a kid that doesn't experiment with being physically dominant. Hopefully this is a brief phase that will pass quickly-just stay close and redirect as much as possible!
Sounds good. I might even start posting more often now lol! Before I was always afraid I was somehow violating the UA and gave up trying and moved to other boards. Thanks for working hard to improve MDC!!
I'm so glad that you updated! I have been wondering how everything was going for you and your baby and I am glad to hear that she isn't dropping weight.
Do you have any breastfeeding support groups in your area that have a scale you can use? Do you have a naturopath who would be willing to do allergy testing?

It was really scary and I wish I would have gone to the doctor the first second that I thought something might be wrong instead of waiting a week. Better safe than sorry...hope everything works out well for...

I have only heard of it being a problem online. Bet I could call everyone I know and they wouldn't have an opinion either way Maybe it's a regional thing?
Also, am I the only parent who DREADS the gifts that people will bring for my kids? I would rather no gifts but apparently it is rude to specify that none be brought, so I grit my...

What is the difference?? I just don't understand why it matters what date the birthday is celebrated on. Please, someone enlighten me...what is so offensive about half b-days?? This is assuming that you don't have a party for the regular b-day of course.
