June chat for October 2009 moms!

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
We are already 1/3 of the way through June and no one has posted in our thread since May 27th! At least not that I saw! I hope I'm not duplicating a June thread. I take that to mean everyone is out enjoying the nice weather with the little ones. Just wanted to say hi and see who is still around.

So adorable! I love little Lyra. She still looks like such a baby. I feel like mine is looking more like a toddler these days and it makes me sad.

It's 'cause she's bald as an egg.

Clapping, crawling, standing, and haircuts??!! Oh my...that's impressive.

Dylan is busy working on his 3rd tooth. No crawling or anything even close. Still majorly struggling with sleep issues. It's a good thing he's so cute!

He is so freaken cute!!!!!! By the way... I was thinking of you. I know Dylan and Israel have been on the same growth curve... I dont know if you saw my other thread or not. I just weighed Israel at home and is still so tiny... height wise and weight wise. Whats Dylans stats these days?

Crawling, lol. Clementine is my second child in a row who sits wonderfully from an early age but could not care less about mobility.

In fact, when she's on her tummy, she just rolls over on to her back. You can keep flipping her over but eventually she'll get annoyed. Harrison was showing her how to do an awesome army crawl and she was all, whatever.

She does like to stand but does not pull up.

Tiny!!!! I haven't had him weighed since his 6 month visit, but I'm sure he is in the 16 lb range. I'm spacing on his height from that visit, but I'll look it up. He's still wearing 6 month clothes though! He's a small dude.

Haven't posted in quite a while, so here's an update on Reagan. She got her first 2 teeth 2 days after her 6 month birthday. She crawls, sometimes too quickly cause she throws herself off balance. She prefers to stand. She loves standing and walking around the coffee table. She has started to stand by herself, and everytime she does it she stands for a little bit longer. She loves her kitties, one in particular (Helmet) lets her crawl all over him. He'll even come over to her and sit down so that he can get her "loves." She's just about at 20 pounds now I think (I weighed her on a scale we have at work, but she had her clothes on), so she's just about the same weight as Helmet. She talks alot more, says dada and occasionally mamamamamaaa. But mostly it's nananannenenanene. She's eating and currently has an aversion to any food that is orange. She loves applesauce and gumming on bananas. She's working on drinking water from a sippy cup, but isn't a super fan, hopefully that'll change. She likes being outdoors, but does not like crawling on grass. She's doing great!!

We have a walker. At 7 months and 10 days he crossed our apartment by himself - 97 steps!

Does he now count as a toddler?

WOW!!!! That's impressive. Owen is standing, cruising, crawling and climbing stairs!!!!! The other day DH let him crawl up while he was behind him, today DD let the gate open and he had crawled nearly half way by the time I got to him, he's freaking fast, like crazily fast. He's saying very clearly mama(more mom-mom) and dada. He has very good taste in foods and is loving local goat cheese, which is funny because it was one of the few foods I really craved while preggers with him.

He doesn't like not being a big kid, he was sad today having to sit at the park-the boy wants to run. He is such a great little guy-he's pretty wonderful. He adores his sister, and she loves him, fun times.

Nora, climbing stairs is pretty awesome! Our fellow skipped crawling and went straight to walking. Which was a bit scary because very unexpected in the beginning, plus he cannot handle stairs at all.

A lot of people keep telling me how essential crawling for babys (brain/language/physiological) development is and that our son will be prone to all sorts of disabilities, which sort of freaks me out, but what can I do? I never forced him to walk nor can I force him to crawl.

Eh, I wouldn't worry about it, I mean what if he crawled for a day, would that be better? I think it sounds great. I think we all have our own learning, it's just like the food thing, there are those who adamantly say if you give a baby food before 6 months they'll all be prone to a life of food issues, for my kids they'd have issues if I didn't give them food. They have both had massive appetites, they are just early eaters, gosh both had teeth before 6 months, lol, something must be up.

I wouldn't worry about it, lot's of kids don't crawl and it's not that uncommon.

Nora, thank you for your words. Somethings just start bugging me in the back of my mind.

Regarding food, we just give him pretty much anything, if there is a reaction, than we wait a bit longer or stop it. After having read the "rules" about when to introduce what food and what to avoid from different countries, I decided it doesn't really matter all that much, and its better to look at my child and see how he does with everything we offer him.

great pics/videos ladies!!!

millie is officially pulling up!
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...00000132384461

she started scooting/army crawling this week, too. no teeth, not really teething and her tort is very minimal now. she goes for another hearing test tomorrow.

as for eating, i think she missed the note that eating is for practice just now. she eats everything and still nurses about every 2 hrs. even at night she lost some weight a few weeks ago due to an ear infection, but she's back up to 19 +lbs now. she's about 29", too.

walking right now scares me. this child has no fear...

Lyra is now able to get from sitting to her tummy and back again, and is up on hands and knees, so crawling will be any day now, I think.

She is also still biting. She put another hole in me last night. I'm trying to stay positive and keep on going, but it's really starting wear me down. I hate that Ic an't trust her while she's on the breast. I sit there with my hand by her mouth waiting to unlatch her. Not that it helps, but the time I get my finger in there, the damage is done.

boobs4milk, we still nurse quite a bit as well. 19lbs sounds great for a 27in breastfeed baby, of that age! DS is 27'' as well and weighs 17.4 lbs.

Our son needs to learn how to protect himself when falling, we have wooden floors, and especially when he's tired, he falls and bumps his head. He loves going over things or on top of things and has no sense of what is dangerous. Maybe that's just how babies of that age are?

MsVyky, that hurts! DS sometimes bites as well, but never too bad. I put him down immidately, if does it though, but I am sure you've tried all those tricks.
post #20 of 50
To the ladies with the biting babies, have you pulled them in so close that your boob covers their face? I had to do this to both my kids, plus I've realized with DS it's when he's really teething that he bites more, so I give him some teething tablets or something.

I kinda feel badly for blocking their nose with my boob for a second, but biting is not ok. DD was a big time biter(at times she still is). When she was this same age I was literally covered with bites on my arms, I think her teeth caused her so much grief(she was a wretched teether) that biting was the only thing that relieved the pressure.

Owen has a HUGE appetite, he nurses still about every 3 hours, eats a TON of food, and also has a bottle of formula while I work. I pump him an 8 oz bottle and work for 6 hours and that EBM+dinner+formula barely keep him satisfied, the kid has a CRAZY metabolism. WOW! My kids hit 8-9 months and they both have been so active that I cannot keep up with the food intake, even with pumping and taking all the milk-boosting supplements, they still need more. Oh well.
