Where are the Sept '10 babies? - Page 10

post #181 of 658

My older two never army crawled, they both went straight into hands and knees... so its new and horribly adorable to see Mae doing this.

 

With Mae when she was first starting to sit up I had the same issue with her lunging forward. Then I learned if I gave her a toy she likes and sat her up she would be more likely to sit there and gnaw on it... even if just for a few moments. Now, she can sit until she decides not to sit anymore... which is usually when all the toys within arms reach are no longer fun and she wants the paper her brother just dropped on the other side of the room.

Wow....all of these babies are SO big and doing so much!!!

 

My little peanut is just 15 lbs 10 oz at her 6 month appointment and is actually delayed in her milestones. I'm trying not to dwell on it too much and just take it in stride, but it's hard sometimes to see babies who are MUCH younger than her do so much more than her. She is nowhere near scooting, sitting up or anything like that. She just started swatting at toys and things at 5 months. She will now grab at stuff, but cannot hold a toy in her hands for very long. She has rolled over a handful of times. But she is here and we love her so much. 

 

This is her a few weeks ago...

Love seeing everyone and hearing how everyone is doing. 

 

This time, last year, many of us were hoping to get out of the 1st trimester!! How things have changed!!!

 

 

I guess I can't figure out this posting picture thing...help?!!

according to the milestone charts i've seen "most" babies are not scooting yet until 8 months. and even thats just most, not all. 

 

Your baby learns different things at different times than other peoples. Mae is, I am positive, going to be a late talker. Your little girly may be talking well before its time!

Ok Lila was being particularly cute today.  So here's a pic lol! 008.JPG

 

I would cry if my bitty girl was crawling!  She can get up on all 4s but I think we have a while.

She has some seriously gorgeous eyes.  It looks like your firstborn does, too.

:) I'm so smitten.  I still wake up wondering if it's a dream.

Such sweet babies!   Reece is also learning to crawl right now, he gets up on all fours really well.  Sometimes he'll straighten his legs and looks like he's doing push-ups.  So far he hasn't figured out the forward part but he reverse nicely.  Haha!   We are in the same boat on the "no-sitting" action and he's also not very interested in his feet yet.  He's very long in the waist so I'm curious if that's not part of the reason.  These last two weeks have been action packed!  It blows my mind how quickly Reece has changed from his 6 month check on the 2nd.

Mae is 15.7 pounds and 25 inches :) 

post #191 of 658

Ellie just had her 6.5 month checkup on Monday--she's 14 lbs 12oz and 26.5 inches long...my tall skinny babe!  I'd still classify her as being high needs, but my oh my have we had such an improvement in her general levels of happiness in the past few weeks!  I remember reading somewhere about HN babies not liking being babies, and it certainly seems true for my girl.  The more things she can do independently, the happier she is.

 

No crawling/scooting here yet (when I put her on her tummy she'll hang out for awhile then roll over and look at me like, "really, mom? 

You're still trying this belly thing?"), but she loooves when I stand her next to the couch or ottoman so she can hold on and stand.  She can stand unsupported by me for a few seconds, and it seems to get longer each time.  Each time she does it she smiles and makes her "happy monkey" noise.  It'll be interesting to see if she's an early walker.

 

I'm also afraid to say this, for fear that I will jinx myself, but my girl's been sleeping through the night for about 2 now.  She goes to sleep around 8:30 - 9 and is up anywhere between 3:30 - 4:30.  So we went from 1-2 hour stretches to 6-7 hour stretches *literally* overnight!  We started giving her avocado in the evening, which I think helps her reflux (old wives' tale or not, it seems to help her!) and having her sleep in her car seat (also helps with the reflux at night).  Unfortunately her reflux overall seems to be getting worse, so we're switching meds and, if that doesn't work in a few weeks, seeing a GI doc.

 

Oh my, I've written a book!  I'm just in such a better place with my sweet Ellie than I was; I really struggled with just how HN she was, and now that I've grown to understand her and her needs better, and now that she just seems so much happier since she actually gets some sleep and is able to do more things for herself, I really, truly understand why people not only do this parenting thing once, but sometimes multiple times! love.gif

Laurski--great news!!  I'm so glad you and Ellie have come to an understanding ;)

 

 

Had T's well visit today:

 

19lb, 8oz

27 7/8"  

 

I forget what his head circumference was, but it's only in the 40th%tile while his height is over 90% and weight is close to that!  Hee!  He's normal, just tiny-headed ;)  What's funny to me is that he' smaller than DD2 was at the same age.

Happy 1/2 birthday Clayton! Kellan is also 6 months today. He's definitely crawling in earnest now. It's shocking to me. He has his older sister beat by about 3 months! He's not babbling all that much though so I think he'll be a late talker like his sister.

 

Parkersmommy-I know it's hard not to compare your baby to others but try not to worry and try not to torture yourself. My daughter is speech delayed and I used to torture myself when she was a toddler thinking, "When is she going to ask 'why' questions?" She's caught up just fine and actually has a vocabulary several years above her age (though she's still a delayed in other areas). Your baby is BEAUTIFUL by the way!

Ack!  We just had the boy weighed and at 5 1/2 months he is 23lbs 7oz!  

 

 

post #195 of 658

WOW.  You just dethroned Ozzy as Chunkiest Sept Baby.

I don't think my back would have minded if Ozzy kept the title. 

 

I've been concerned that he is going to outgrow his one-size cloth diapers but CD veterans have promised me otherwise. smile.gif  Hopefully he will thin out once he can get his massive belly off the ground and starts crawling.

post #197 of 658

well... maybe. 

 

My friends son cant fit one-sizes and is wearing the largest sposies she can find... and he just turned 1 :/ boy is a chub monster! 

 

shes soooo skinny too... i joke that he just sucked everything right out of her... as he didn't start eating solid food until he was 8 or 9 months old even!

 

Not that thats a bad thing, he was obviously getting all he needs from her milk lol

post #198 of 658

I guess I should keep the possibility of needing to use disposables in the back of my mind!

 

Beckett is definitely taking everything from me.  I'm almost 15lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight because of his constant nursing and casein sensitivity (it's amazing how much cutting out dairy can do to your caloric intake!).

post #199 of 658

speaking of weight loss!

 

I'm losing weight while my husband is deployed (on purpose, carefully and healthily) and am down 23 pounds as of weigh in today! :D I am so excited. He's gonna come home to a bigger baby Mae and smaller big Mae!

I hear ya! I'm 20 pounds below my pre-pregnancy weight (also nursing exclusively and not able to eat dairy due to milk protein sensitivity). I'm sort of dragging my feet on starting solids because I don't want to lose the weight loss benefits!
