Where are the Sept '10 babies? - Page 23

post #441 of 658

I find it really interesting that a lot of the babies who wanted to stay on the inside a bit longer seem to be way ahead in terms of milestones! Lots of early crawlers in this group!!

 

Simon is now 8 months, still not even close to crawling, very limited babbling, no teeth, just sort of content to hang out. :)

That usually tends to be the case in my anecdata.  My cousin's son went past 42 weeks and WALKED (as in, walking by himself, real walking all over the place) at.... 7.5 months.  I'm not even making that up.

People told me that last week that that happens. I didn't care at the time I just wanted her out!

DD2 crawled/pulled up/cruised at 7m, walked before she was 10m old and took off 6 steps the first time. She was a 41-weeker. DS is slow compared to her so far but I think he may walk sooner. So I guess my anecdata supports as well!!

Lila was born 2 days before her due date, she's officially cruising furniture.  :(  I'm so sad.  She's a late Sept baby too.  I've got video of her pushing her highchair around like it's a walker.  She's growing up so fast!

Hmmm... Caden was born 38.5 weeks and was pulling up and cruising at 7.5 months. He's 9.5 now and still just cruising and crawling...

Clayton was over a week late and is just now crawling. He is a velcro baby though and hates being put down.

Ozzy was three weeks "early" (37-weeker) and started army-crawling 7 m, cross-crawling 8 m, and just turned 9 m and just started pulling up and cruising furniture.  But he's not vocal at ALLL.  I mean he's loud and hollers and screeches a lot, but not a lot of "babble."  His sister (a month early, 36 weeker) was about a month behind the rest of babies her age... didn't roll until 6 months, didn't army crawl until 8, didn't cross-crawl until 9, didn't stand unassisted until I think 11-12 months, walked at 14 months.  BUT she was a babbler from a very early age, all kinds of varied consonant sounds, a little chatterbox.  I think babies tend to focus on one or the other most of the time.  And I think that very late, and very early, babies show it in their gross physical milestones.

 

 

 

But, meh, by the time they are two years old it all shakes out anyway, lmao.

I love all the cuddles.. my little guy is wiggly if we stand still too much, army crawls fast now! just really starting, smiles and looks back at me! laughes and sprints if I call him back!!!!! oh man, slow the time down,, 9mo ...I almost passed out -told someone he was 8mo, and my oldest was like 'ma, its June.. he's 9mo now" AAAck.

Anyone else go through the "bathtubs are scary!" phase yet? Mae started at about the time her daddy left in January and just NOW got back into thinking they might not be so bad... maybe... lol

Lila's still pretty in love with the bath tub.  :) I can see teeth 3&4 and maybe even #5, but they're still not breaking through.  She's a trooper though, I wouldn't give up her amber necklace for, well, I guess I'd give one of them up for $50 and just buy a new one lol.. nevermind. 

 

Poor girl keeps trying to walk, she'll stand, balance, step and fall.  I still haven't invested in a little walker,  I should, she's constantly pushing her high chair around the dining room.  That's damn cute! In honor of father's day I made up a side by side of my sleeping girl and her Papa.. She's a little Mini-him. My SIL asked if I was sure she was mine lol.

Awww!

 

 

 

Ozzy is finally starting to "talk" instead of just screech.  Lots of "ba ba ba ba ba la la la blah"

 

 

Working on tooth 5 here.  Miserable.  He's pulling up all over the place but showing no inclination to stand independently.

Ahh talking is so much fun! A few days ago we had something dangerously close to "mum" but that's about it.. She still says "hiiiiiiiiii" when her daddy comes in the door.  We don't have any syllables no ba ba ba, mamamam, dadada ect.  She screams when she's happy. Grocery shopping with her is great fun lol. 

post #454 of 658

We've started getting excited "HIIIII!" and wave... when she sees our neighbor lady come over, when she sees the bus pull up with her brother and sister at the end of the school day... and the most excited (and seriously MOST adorable) when daddy calls on Skype and she notices him. I can't wait for him to be home!

 

We've been working more with sign language... I only get "daddy" and "sleep" and a sort of odd version of "all done" that we are still working on. She quiets down if I do "milk" and she's hungry or if I lay her down to change her, she fusses until I do "change" and she knows why she's laying there.

 

Our first anniversary is this coming Monday and I'm in tears because I don't even get a hug or kiss for our anniversary :(

9 month check up today, 24 lb 11 oz, 30.5 inches.  Still a giant, but at least the gain has slowed down and he's lengthening out.

How's the weight loss going? Last month I signed up for a weight loss challenge with The Sparkle Mama http://thesparklemama.blogspot.com/2011/05/june-get-your-sparkle-back-weight-loss.html  I came in 5th with a loss of 6.71% of my body weight (22lbs!)  We had 20 mamas join the first place winner got 10 (cloth)  diapers and the 2nd and 3rd got 5 each.  I'm sure there will be another one next month.. anyone wanna join?  Since giving birth I've lost 75lbs! (50 of that was baby weight) This month we only have 13 mamas.  Help us keep this going, we need more interest for July! :D

post #459 of 658

I have way too much going on to keep trying to lose weight. I'm stuck at just over 200 pounds and gave up caring. 35 pounds down... 35 to my goal weight and yeah. Meh.

 

I think the whole having no clue when my husband is going to be home thing has a lot to do with it. And raising 3 kids with NO help and now no school to take two of them off my hands part of the week... I feel like I'm going crazy.

post #460 of 658

I'm hanging out at 130.  I'd love to get rid of that final 5-- then I'd be back to pre-Emma weight.  But, I'm pretty happy as it is.  If I drop another five it will just be the icing on the cake.
