January 2010 Mamas - Page 2

post #21 of 41

OH MY GOODNESS!! I love catching up with everyone! I can't believe so many are pregnant again!! I still haven't gotten my period back yet~Liam is 15 months & this is the longest I've ever gone without. Can't complain & it gives me more time to figure out the more babies thing. I go a little crazy with 3 children & can't imagine a 4th, then we have an amazing day & I can't imagine NOT having a 4th.

 

Liam is running, biting everything (tons of teeth still coming through) & has that personality shining through. We're trying to encourage baby signs & so far, he just looks at us & goes "uhhh" or "whats that". He really only says 4 words...what's that, mama, dada & the screech for get away from me big brothers!! LOL

 

I'm so glad that all our babies are doing well & growing healthy. It just makes my heart sing!

Congratulations Angela!  That is definitely funny timing!

I want to see some booty shaking videos, I love dancing toddlers.

 

Ethan is getting a bunch of teeth too.  He's been getting molars for about 2 months, with 2 through and 2 partially through.  In that time, he's also gotten his top incisors, the bottom ones are red and swollen but not cut yet.  Teeth are stupid - he has days when they don't bother him at all and days where he cries as soon as he wakes up.  Ethan says about a bagillion words.  Ok, not that many but he says a lot!  Everyday he surprises me with more words.  He loves birds and trucks ("big trucks" sometimes sounds more like "big f@#ks, haha).  We put up a bird feeder a few weeks ago so he could watch them from the living room. 

 

It's been so long since anyone's posted, it's so nice to hear updates!!!

Wow, great to hear some updates from this group orngbiggrin.gif

 

Congratulations, Angela! Funny timing, indeed!

 

I'm currently "waiting to O" and hope to try this month! My O has been very late in my cycle since AF returned in January.

 

Skylar will be 17 months in a week! She's running around, seems to be learning a new word every few days, loves dancing and music, and is still nursing up a storm smile.gif This is SUCH a fun age...I'm really enjoying it. Here's a short video from last month that highlights one of her many talents winky.gif

 

We are patiently waiting for the last 4 molars....she got her others quite quickly but nothing (except on/off teething discomfort) for months now.

I hope the adoption goes smoothly for you (and speedily). ... We gave my Malachi a haircut a couple months ago and took so many pictures. It's amazing the difference a haircut makes.

Catubodua- keep us posted and yay for puffs and pizza!  

PoetryLover- congrats! I think I have seen you around on other boards, I also have a Malachi who is 15 months in two days!

 

As far as ttc....I definitely want another one soon.  We are planning on adopting our second child and have turned in the very preliminary papers for it.  A lot goes into adoption and it is hard for me to play the hurry up and wait game.  I want to breastfeed this one too (hoping to breastfeed all of my kids) and I think that is what is at the forefront of my mind right now.  So, next we have interviews and a home study then we wait for someone to choose us.  It could take 16 months to 3.5 years from now.  That is what trips me up because I don't want too much space in between but it's not like I can make the process go faster :)

 

Malachi is a ball of energy these days.  Seems like we are working on molars too.  I gave him his first hair cut this week, so sad to see those baby curls go away!  No STTN yet and not even close.  He is a night nurser and he is no where near ready to give up the milk at night.  Some nights it drives me crazy, others, no big deal.  It usually has more to do with my own psychological state than anything else.  Anyone else notice a dip in their milk supply around AF?  I always have and it seems to be getting more pronounced.  Lots of trying to say words, a lot of communication and really concentrating on what I am saying.  I think I name ball and dog a billion times a day.  Malachi also has to stop and point up at the sky for EVERY airplane.  We live on a flight path so there are tons for him to point at.  I love seeing his personality develop, I knew he was an individual from day one but it is neat to see what he prefers and what he thinks is funny.

 

I am still getting adjusted to moving to another state but I have made some new friends and I am starting to really feel familiar with some places which is so nice!  Now, I just need the weather to be warm and sunny all the time!


Congratulations! I'm 28 weeks pregnant and am definitely feeling it.

Hope you all are doing well.  I want to hear more updates!  And see more pictures!!

 

 



 


I'll look forward to seeing the video. They're so cute at this age.

Emily is doing such cute things lately.  Such a charmer and a great dancer too.  I must get some video up of her shaking her little booty.  I can't belive they are almost a year and half old!



 

We've been teaching Malachi signs, too, and so far he can sign "more", "please", "thank you" and "all done." "All done" was a big one for us because it helped him to communicate that he was done eating without throwing his food on the floor. LOL

Oh, molars are the worst! Poor Ethan to have to go through that pain for 2 whole months. Teething tablets really helped Malachi to sleep better, but it was a huge struggle for all of us. He was in so much pain.

I LOVE reading everyone's updates! Malachi turns 16 months on the 30th. He's running around at this point. He has so many words. We counted something like 70 words and phrases that he can say. He has started to chase the cats and sometimes he'll try to coax them by saying, "Meow" and walking toward them very slowly. His dad plays the guitar and Malachi has a little electric guitar. He uses the pick really well and handles the guitar well (he is a lefty, so he plays a right handed guitar upside down). He also sings while he strums; it's so, so cute! He LOVES flowers. We got some cute photos of him in a field of dandelions. He also loves our beta fish, bubble baths, being read to and nursing!

Anybody else *not* cutting hair just yet?  Griffin is getting some curls (we live in a high humidity area so that helps...I'm not sure he'd have them otherwise) and I just can't even think about chopping them off.  BUT he looks like he has freaking wings!  It's nuts.

post #26 of 41


We do the wings too:) I don't cut until close to the 2nd birthday. With my second, he had a massive head of curls & we kept them as long as we could. He loves his hair super short, but I miss those curls!

Yay for updates!!! Congrats to everyone adding to their family! We're finally TTC # 2 officially. love.gif
Sasha is almost 17 months, is changing every day, although we still have hardly any hair so nothing to cut and only 6.5 teeth. shine.gif
He is obsessed with balls and helping around the house.

Skylar doesn't have nearly enough hair for a hair cut! I love curls...looks like Skylar will also have some which is so great because my hair is SUPER straight and I think curls are adorable....

post #29 of 41

No hair cuts here, yet!  She barely has enough hair to comb, let alone cut.  But then DS didn't get his first cut until he was over two.  I wish DD had enough hair to consider cutting it. I'm jealous.

That would be us. My son Rowan gets "girled" a lot as a result, but hey- he IS really pretty. He is running, playing, getting in a few molars (he has all the front ones), and talking and signing now. He is a delight- doing super cute things all the time. He is almost weaned as well.

 

Congrats to all the mamas out there who are preggers again, and best of luck to those TTC.

post #31 of 41

I just got back from doula'ing a mama who had a delightful water baby today. It made me want to get pregnant again to go through labor & birth. I sound crazy when I say that, but I still feel cheated out of my last birth.

 

It was a girl too...my house is full of three beautiful & very loud boys hee hee!! run.gif

This is my Alice at 16.5 months (taken Sunday at the zoo). Someone mentioned curls :)

post #33 of 41
Cuuuuuurls!!
post #34 of 41

Oh my, Alice is adorable!!

Ethan doesn't have enough hair to cut at all!  My nieces and nephew were all born with lots of hair, but my two had very little at birth.  With my oldest, he was fairly bald until he was at least 3!

HI everyone!

I haven't been on MDC in so long!  

I'm here because I just joined the Jan 2012 DDC!

So I thought I'd see if we were in the toddlers area yet!

So Hudson is such a sweet boy!  He has a half head of blonde curls (only the back) I won't be cutting them any time soon!  

He's walking, has a mouthful of teeth, and still sleeping with me, every night.  

He adores his big sister and always want to play with whatever she is.  

I think he's a fabulous artist, and a Olympian in the making.  (we're doing gymnastics with him since his sister does them and I could not keep him off of the equipment, so he's enrolled!) 

He's so sweet.  So I needed to have another!

Congratulations! That's awesome news!

I cant believe how big everyone has gotten. Panda still seems so little to me,probably because she's so bald lol  You can see some little blond curls in there though.  She has a ton of personality. She's very persistent and smart, not a big talker though.  She has a toddler bed and sleeps in that about half the nigh and still nurses too. 

 

Here she is at Pride dancing with a drag queen lol
