PK – seven teeth? What have you used to help LO with teething? We have homeopathic tablets but I heard someone found drops.
Jacqueline – Thanks for the note on the Thyroid thread. It’s still a challenge to finding things on this site. I hope someone is able to answer my questions there. It’s so long though. I doubt I’ll be able to read it all and hope I haven’t asked the same question the millionth time.
Katie – I’m a big supporter of our military and member of www.operationquietcomfort.com
. I am very excited for you that your dh will be home soon.
Major-mama – I have a night owl too, DD is often awake at 10, although we start bedtime routine at 9. I liked your comment about ds fighting sleep as if it’s the ultimate enemy – I know what that’s like. DD is happy, smiley, good natured baby until we have pj’s on and her bedtime blanket, then it is crying, screaming, fit-throwing time. Usually she is so tired it doesn’t last long and she’s asleep in daddy’s arms.
j-p-i – sounds like you have a walker! Sounds so cute.
Kelly – Your baby sure is long & lean. I had my dd in for her 10 month weight/height check. I bring her in every month so that I can fill in her baby book that has these empty blanks for weight/height that compel me to do something to fill them in. At 10 months she is 18#10oz, 28 ½” She was born 8#6oz and 20 ¼”. She was hovering at 27” Dec, 27 ¼” Jan and Feb, then shot up an inch in a month. Sounds like you have a good Ped. Mine also was assigned at the hospital and she has been great on b/f too, not recommending any solids until after six months.
Olivia is getting over cold #3 or 4, I’ve lost count. I suspect she picks something up at Library time on Mondays and by Tuesday night she is coughing. This time though she had a temp of 101.4 and became a snot monster. I didn’t know so much snot could come out of such a little nose. Poor girl, she’d be fine one minute and the next the snot would be down her lips, chin and sometimes her shirt or floor.
She did her first cruising, from my chair to the end table to daddy's chair a few times over the weekend. She also stands hands-free for several seconds. It's fun to see her practice this and makes me wonder how she knows she's supposed to do something like that.
I traveled to pick up donor milk on Saturday. I’m finally happy with a freezer full between myself and two donors. We are expected to be completely weaned by next week and I have mixed feelings about it. We should have frozen breastmilk to last for at least six weeks until she turns one. I have dental and medical issues that I’ll finally be able to address, but I’ll miss our evening cuddle/nursing times.
