Rowan finally started mimicking this weekend. Maybe that last ped's visit where he was concerned about his "lack of words" gave a little oomph. yesterday we were playing with his colored blocks... purple "pooplllllle", red "wed", yellow "elloooo"....
He also says "here you go" Eer(g)o when he hands me stuff.
So all of the sudden he has words he didn't. And he mimics anything you make a point of him saying. Yay!
I need to catch up on some Teeth education. Cause he is just finishing his bottom front fourth tooth. Four HUGE molars in his back, but they've always been there. Maybe there's a second round coming? I feel like an idiot asking. He can now bite/chew into anything. We're both trying to find a healthier diet. My lack of gallbladder has been acting up on me, so I'm going vegetarian for a few months to try to get rid of the red meat fats; limited dairy as well. Rowan is still eating meats, but I'm making it just healthier all around. He's such a big kiddo! And not just the belly :-) The whole person that is him seems to be bigger/taller than 2yrs old I see. I'm not concerned about his weight, nor is his ped. But me being healthier just makes for a healthier household. And I'm a heavy girl, so that's not a bad thing.
I'm wondering about sleeping arrangements. He lunges out of his crib. Granted, he still LOVES his crib. And he's great about it going down. I'm not opposed to him crawling out in the mornings or post-nap, but it's dangerous. He face dives... and that's a good 3 feet. He could really hurt himself. I've considered giving him steps, but I don't think he'd stay in it going down, if the steps were so easily accessible. So I took apart the toddler bed and put the mattress on the floor. Just to see what he thought. How does anyone do this? Cause... Why Would he Stay in it? When does that discipline happen? He'd just play for an hour and, if fell asleep out of exhaustion, I'm doubting it'd be on the bed. I just don't get the transition to a big boy bed at this age. Doesn't seem old enough?!
For those of you using a crib, do they crawl out yet? What are you thinking for the next step? btw, co-sleeping is OUT. One thing about selfish separation, too many times of bringing the baby in to sleep with me. Yeah, NOT happening. He wakes up and then just hits me with toys for an hour. No successful sleeping.
