Congratulations!  That's such wonderful news!

Thanks! We're thrilled. :)

 

So, does anyone else have a toddler who takes FOREVER to eat meals? She eats plenty (but not too much), and she eats just about anything, so I don't have any complaints there, but she'll take a bite, then get lost in singing songs, trying to get the cat's attention, looking at photos on the wall, flopping back in the chair, telling me a story about something that happened, etc. She never spends less than an hour eating a meal, and it's often more like 90 minutes. If I leave the room while she's eating she tends to throw lots of food on the floor and try to feed the cat, so I feel stuck, and that's a lot of time to give up! And I don't really want to "check out" during meal time and read a book or check emails on my phone, etc. while she's eating. I will do dishes and clean up the kitchen a bit, but that just doesn't take very long.

 

Has anyone come up with a solution to make meals go a little quicker? I know it's healthy to eat slowly enough that your brain can register fullness, but this is taking that to an extreme. :) And perhaps she'll just outgrow it, but if there's something I can do to nudge things along, I'm game!

Ha, my Sept '10 son also takes forever to eat- it's not uncommon for him to start breakfast around 7:15 am and be done by 8:30 am- so I totally know what you're going through. I have no idea how to hurry it, I wait until he tells me he's done but yeah, I feel you!!

Had my 2012 baby 3 weeks ago... little girl, Roxanne Marjorie.

 

Maeryn loves her to bits. (excuse the messy hair, she was at a hotel with my mother the night before and hadn't had her hair done up yet)

CONGRATS! 

 

M has finally slowed down on the amount he eats, and his meals actually go quite quickly (as opposed to a few months ago) he tends to snack here and there and scarf down 2-3 big meals a day. I mean eating 2 eggs before I finish one then yelling "Mama, more egg!!" lol!

Congrats, Mae!

I have a two year old!  How on earth did that happen?  yikes2.gif

 

Hope everyone else is doing well!  E. just started a new Montessori daycare and loves it!  She is super verbal, super active, so much fun, and so incredibly stubborn!  I think between the start of the "trying 2s" and the personality she inherited from me we are in for a long, long year!  biglaugh.gif

Hello Friends!

 

I can't believe I missed this whole thread. Two years has gone by in a hurry. Now I'm expecting Baby #2 in August and was nostalgic for all my September 2010 peops. So great to read about all your sweet babes and hear how y'all have been doing. Lots of love to you all! <3
 

P.S. Here's my sweet Andrew at almost 27 months.

Hey, Crafty!! I may be joining you in the August DDC, crossing my fingers. Congrats to you!!
post #217 of 229

fingersx.gif for you Porcelina! It'd be such fun to be in another DDC together!
 

post #218 of 229

Congrats Crafty and Porcelina!  joy.gif

 

Wishing you guys sticky beans and smooth pregnancies!

 

Hard to believe our little ones are full blown 2 year olds at this point.  E has gone from being a holy terror of an infant to just the sweetest, funniest, most talkative 2 year old imaginable.  So glad I didn't let that pack of wolves take her...lol.gif

Hi there-

Little Liam Charles was born on Saturday morning 2/9 at home.  He is healthy and we are loving him.  Girls are in love and getting used to having another little one in the house.
