October 2009 Mums and TODDLERS!

post #1 of 119
Thread Starter 
Our first thread over here in Toddlers. Mamas whose babes have had their birthday already: how did it go? Tell us all about it!!!
post #2 of 119
I can't believe it's been an year! Dd's birthday is tomorrow, but we'll celebrate it with family and friends in a couple of weeks, when my sister (dd's godmother) is visiting us.

I'm so happy dd graduated to toddlerhood, but sad in a way; she's my last baby.

Happy birthday everyone!

For me it's funny Owen has been a toddler IMO since about 10 months when he started walking or toddling, LOL. We're not huge 1st b-day people, I think it is too overwhelming for many kids that age, so we just have a mellow family dinner planned.

IDK how much I'll be able to post since DS is such a toddler, he's a BUSY boy.

DD will be 1 in less than 2 weeks. Where did the time go???

I guess this means I'll have to check the "Toddler" thread only from now on. Bye bye babes, hello big boys and girls!

is it really bad that i teared up when i saw the post in LWIB saying we moved to toddlers? eeeek.
she didn't want to come out into the world, so our birthday celebration is quite some time after the dd and not for a while. but she's toddling all around, that's for sure. walking like crazy!

Lyra's not walking ye. Cruising a bit while holding onto furniture, but not standing independently either.

S is not walking yet but will hold our hands and walk, and in fact demands it, has for awhile. She cruises on furniture too. She says dada and mama and dat and ba (ball) and bee bee (baby -- her favorite toy, a baby doll).

No words over here except "mama" and "da", and we suspect that "a-DAH" means dog.

Hey I was just lurking in the newest DDC & saw that kawa kamuri is pregnant, too!! Has she posted here recently? Hooray for all the new babies!

I totally wish there was an easy way to send a PM to every member of our old DDC, asking them to come join us this month. I actually lie awake at night thinking about things like that. I'd so love to hear from everybody!

My Oct baby has started walking! He still says only mama & dada.

I finally had my 1st PPAF, which is why I was over there lurking in the DDCs. Maybe I'll get to join the party over there again soon.

I'm not kidding, this past year has whizzed by so fast that it feels almost like a Twilight Zone episode or something. Like, people around me must be lying- didn't I just give birth to this baby?? Er, I mean..... toddler!

Edit: and I JUST got my first PPAF yesterday. Right as DH and I were eating dinner, ready to go out on a date.

for everett's 1st birthday, my mom made the 4.5hr drive up and surprised us
that weekend we just had a few friends over for a bbq and a friend made some yummy cupcakes - everett didn't have any but callum did

everett babbles but no real words, or maybe they are - sounds like he says mama to me but not totally sure. he loves climbing stairs and the usual cruising, and can stand on his own but no walking yet

the biggest change is how much he actually plays with his older brother. they really interact which is great

everett has 9 teeth and is still nursing what feels like non-stop, and for long periods of time. it's kind of a chore, and sometimes i kind of hate it (like after 45 minutes on the boob non-stop), but i know it isn't forever and i remember how positive it was to let ds1 self-wean. so hanging in

still haven't got the balance right, but trying.

i have not got ppaf yet. i am still waiting. i am afraid though. lol. when DD1 was 18 mo old i got a 3 day bleed, the first ppaf, then 6 weeks later found out i was 6 weeks preg. this time i am charting and checking cf. hopefully another preg wont sneak up on me, i much prefer planning them.

still havent made plans for a bday party. i keep telling everyone i am denial. i do not want her to be a year already but tues is her bday. sigh. better get on it. if the weather permits i would like to have it at a park, maybe fly some kites. then go to the grandparents houses separately.

DD2 can walk now only holding one of my hands. she says mom and dad. she signs mom and milk. she doesnt like putting blocks in holes but she loves taking my bbt in and out of its case.

she will only eat what she steals from me. if i give it to her on her tray she will play with it and throw it. but if i am eating it, she will steal it and wolf it down. she can eat almost anything except normal choking hazard stuff. she has 6 teeth now.

it sounds like everybody's babies are about on the same page. isnt it amazing how babies grow?

Lyra cut her first MOLAR over the night!
post #15 of 119
Wow, molars! Youch! With us, dd doesn't nurse much at all lately. She is too distracted, and frankly she seems to prefer the company of dh or even a friend of mine to my company. She nurses mostly when I can get her into bed -- when we're out it's a lot harder to get her to nurse. I often resort to nursing her in her car seat or sometimes just sitting up in the front seat holding her, because she gets too distracted or busy. I think she may be cutting some more teeth too soon. What is the usual order? She has eight teeth so far.

Aw Zjande, I miss you too! I wish they would just re-open our old DDC.

Toddlerness

Yeah, it hit me a while back when Kara started unloading drawers and emptying cabinets, disappearing into empty rooms and throwing mega-tantrums .... She's acting like a toddler already!

They recently built a new pavilion in a private area of the park with it's own small play area, so I'm planning to get there early and put my dibs on it for her b-day celebration. Her dad's b-day is the week before and he's working that day, so it will probably be a double celebration. I'm excited!

Does anyone else have a climber? Owen is climbing, pulling the chairs out from the dining room table and climbing up ONTO the table. He also climbs the picnic table. Yesterday was a very pivotal day of maturing into toddler status, it seems like every month Owen has a developmental leap a week or so after his month birthday.

Yesterday he was just acting so little boy. Not baby-ish at all.
