Hi all! As many have said, nice to see so many moms of 3 yr olds! My Billy-Ra (pronounced Ray) turned 3 Apr 8. He is a bundle of love! I have not had many problems at all in his life! As a newborn, he had tons of gas which was real hard, but since then, nothing really has caused me to say much other than "pure angel" about him!
He is fascinated with rolly-polly's right now, terrified of all other bugs (at ds 9yr old's suggestion...), afraid of walking on grass bare footed, naps 2 hours daily with pg mama, sleeps 9-10 hours a night, loves trucks, cars and other mobile things, is interrested in potty training, but only if his diaper is off and is generally, the kindest, most polite, gentle, loving, peaceful, generous, giving child I've ever met in my life!!! (seriously! I'm not being prejudiced!
The other day he was bare bottomed and we've told him not to pee on the bed...he says to daddy, "pick me up so I can pee on you, not the bed!" I laughed hysterically!!!
dh didn't. He put him on the toilet real quick though!
Today he's puting rolly polly's in the hose and turning on the water to get them out again...He stops to smell flowers all the time, loves to give them to mommy, even enjoys spending time with big brother alone in (older one's) room! That sure gives us quiet time we've been needing! So, he still sleeps in our room in his own bed, occasionally spending the night or half of it in our bed. He nursed till 2 and even brushes his own teeth most of the time! The other day he climbed on the toilet after taking off his diaper and pooped for only the second time! I was so excited!!! He never opened doors to explore, never climbs never has, asks to hold a hand at the crossing of streets, and never has run off in any way shape or form! He even asks before playing with toys!
Have any of you got younger children too?
I am due to give birth July 4 and need to think of transitioning him to his own room so we have room for the baby after a few months to sleep next to us instead of in our bed. Not sure how it'll work. I don't want Billy to feel alienated or pushed out cause of the new baby and the really nice Christian councilor we are seeing is not helping by telling dh that ds really needs to be out of our room...
Sorry so long, just really enjoy sharing all about my precious!!!
