You guys are amazing...I was hoping to find a thread still going, and here you are! Yay!
MP, it is SO GOOD to see you with your dh. :D Is he home for good?
Here are some recent photos of dd... the first one is on her birthday:
And the rest are from Halloween weekend:
She's such a sweetheart, though she's starting to get into a tantrummy phase. Anyone else dealing with that? She has a great receptive vocabulary, but not a ton of words yet (though she's very reliable with yes and no, and uses them appropriately to tell us what she wants)...I'm not sure if her tantrums are because she's frustrated at not being able to talk, or if they're just part of the "learning what no means" phase, or what. She IS getting all four molars at once, which looks b-r-u-t-a-l :(, so that could be part of it. Poor kid. She's been so fussy with molar pain, along with pointing at her head when I ask what hurts, that I took her in yesterday to see if it was her ears. Nope. Just molar pain.
I have question about the holidays, too.... what are you guys getting for your little ones? I'm in need of some age-appropriate gift ideas. I was thinking of getting her a doll cradle for the kids' dollhouse (really a closet in our house, but it's a doll house to them), but I'm just not sure. I did find an embryonics sing with me cube on craigslist, which we'll be picking up for one of her presents. I think she'll LOVE that....it's always been one of the favorite toys for our little ones, but after four kids our other one is kaput. I'm also going to get her the next size up in that dress she wore for her first birthday...it's my favorite on her, and boatbaby posted that she'd found where to get larger sizes online. Yay!
What are you all doing for this holiday, though? I wish I had something that was perfect for her, but I can't think of anything right now. It's such a strange time to think of gifts....I don't feel like she has any concrete interests yet for me to work from.
Nice to "see" you all...now I'm going to go catch up on the last few pages!
