 Poor Shay, Hope he's okay.hug2.gif

 

 

Harlan babbles alot like saying Ahh and what sounds like yeah , but not saying Dadda or anything yet. He also does a high pitched happy scream. Alex swears he says her name lol.gif

 

  I got a response to a complaint i filed with our insurance about H's dr from last month..  The letter states "That the care that was provided was appropriate "…. umm how the hell was it appropriate that a dr blatantly ignore a parent. Really i would love to know? Oh yeah and it’s BS that a dr needs to check a intact male for infection which was what she told the case investigator. I’m so glad that i filed a formal complaint against said dr with the state medical board.

Sora has been babbling a lot for months but started saying Mama and Dada last week. It melts my heart hearing her say, "Mamaaaa greensad.gif" all sad-like in the middle of the night when I go to change her diaper and feed her. Also, when I had her sitting in a shopping cart this weekend, she sounded like she said, "Hey!" when a woman walked up to her. lol.gif We were laughing. Too cute.

Whoa, wait.... Did the doctor pull back the foreskin?

 Yeah, After i clearly told her " don't retract him"  she did it anyways to the point of seeing urine opening. angry.gif and then she babbled on how it need to be done constantly or else he might need to be circed later.  I made sure in my formal complaint with the state to say that she was trying to diagnose him with phimosis.

Wow. That's horrible, Kami. greensad.gif I'm sorry you had that kind of an experience. I am appalled that the doctor ignored your wishes for your own child. Just wow.

 I have all 3 of the kids on the wait list for a new pediatrician so until spots open up with her,If i needed to take them in for anything i could just request to see any other dr but that dr that i complained about.

Not behind! Enoch isn't sitting 100% unsupportive. He's a big roller but no crawling or pulling up. He loves to stand but we have to hold onto him when he does. He is a big babbler though, multiple sounds.

 

Ash: you never know about words! My 5 year old is very likely gifted, but we didn't start noticing until he was past a year- he was pretty much dead average on everything until maybe 17 months. Then he started putting together puzzles meant for three year olds and starting basic phoenics reading..

Sara - Oh my gosh, poor little guy!  Poor YOU! I'm so, so sorry.  Thinking about you guys tonight! hug2.gif

 

Kami - how awful, ugh.

 

Jaimee - There is such an incredible range of normal, as you know!  And Avery is our young guy :)

 

KJ is sitting up and babbling lots of "da-da-da"s and "na-na-na"s.  She waves "hi" and consistently says "hi", too (really I swear!).  The only thing that concerns me a *little* is that she really isn't eating much solid food.  I mean, I offer her something daily (avocado, banana, sweet potato, cucumber and celery for teething, broccoli, etc) and she puts it in her mouth but most of it ends up being gagged on and/or spit out.  I'm assuming this is normal and that she's just taking her sweet time getting used to eating... Her favorites so far: cucumber (she doesn't get any but loves to gnaw on it), broccoli, and... wait for it... green juice!  I made a potent green juice yesterday (kale, broccoli, cucumber, lettuce, and celery) that was so intense I cringed when I drank it.  I offered her some from the end of the straw and she could NOT get enough!

post #173 of 352

Ugh! I would not have let her touch his penis AT ALL! If it's not red or swollen, do not touch! Just because it's intact does not make it unclean. angry.gif I'm glad you lodged a formal complaint.

post #174 of 352

Sorry for Shay, Sara! Hope he is feeling better.

 

Katie, in my completely un-expert opinion, I really don't think solids are such a big deal until closer to a year. I really didn't feed my girls much at first. I'm feeding Jasper much more than I did my girls... I think it's because of doctor visits (I didn't used to do those blush.gif) and hearing about what all the other babies are eating. But I wouldn't be worried.

Shay is ok. He does have a scratch on his cornea but it is outside his visual field and should heal quickly. Antibiotic ointment. No stitches to the eyelid.

I hope Shay is OK!

 

Oren's sitting unassisted (but he still falls over sometimes - it's been two months and he still hasn't figured out a graceful way of getting down to his belly), rolling and pivoting to get where he wants to go, at the backwards pushing stage of crawling, but not pulling up or anything. He just started putting weight on his legs. He's clapping, and starting to get the signs "more" and "all done." Kind of. He says "Mmmmm." when he wants to nurse. He does say mama and dada, but not really at us, KWIM? Though he does say mama when he's upset, so who knows, maybe he does associate that noise with me. He also has a slew of other consonants (ga, ba, na, tha, ta, ra) and he babbles and chatters constantly. And growls and roars when he's excited. It's funny, he has such a deep voice, even his cry is deep. He's still super chill, though he gets really mad when DD takes away anything that he's really interested in. And he's chilled out about food a bit, but he still loves to eat and can feed himself all his wedges and chunks really easily now, which is awesome. He's even got the pincer down, so I'm going to try him on peas next. 

 

Babies are all so different! I like these little check-ins, it's neat to see what other babies are up to. Waving and talking and cruising! Oh my. So big.

Kami- that's awful!

 

Katie- I know it can be frustrating, but solid foods are not really important until over a year of age.  Some say breastmilk can suffice upwards of 16 months.  No worries there, but I understand.  It's yet another thing in our culture that doesn't make sense... solid food consumption is not a mark of a good parent or good baby!

 

Sara- ugh!  So sorry you had to go through that and so happy to hear he's fine!

So far Coralie is my perfectly 'average' baby.  She can sit, has 2 bottom teeth, babbles a lot (mama, mmmm, aahhh, screech, ba, etc), she rolls both ways and eats very small amounts of food.  She is not close to pulling up or crawling yet.   My DS did everything on the later side and Olivine did everything on the early side, so I guess I needed one of each kind of kid.  ;)

I'm glad Shay is okay, Sarah. That would have been heart stopping, I can't even imagine. =( It's always the stuff we don't think about, eh?

 

Conner is, I guess, average? LOL I don't know. First baby. He's army crawling, he can sit up unassisted but can't sit himself up from a laying position. His balance still isn't perfect because he falls over easily. He rolls everywhere though. Words? Hah! I'll go, "Conner! Mamamamamamamama. Dadadadadadadadada." and he laughs at me. O_o

aaaannnnndddddd now Dylan is crawling on hands and knees.  Holy cow.  He still army crawls most of the time because he is more adept at that and thus faster, but he can definitely crawl.  Oh man.  

Ash, I compare my two boys all the time, too!  It's hard not to, I think.  My older son just started army crawling at 6.5 months, and now at the same age Dylan is truly crawling, pulling up, cruising on his knees, etc.  On the other hand, at this age my older son was babbling more- dadada etc, and Dylan isn't yet.  He is very vocal, but not too many vowel-consonant combos yet except "ra".  

 

It's also hard not to put them in a box, so to speak.  Dylan just seems way more PHYSICAL than my older son, who is very intellectual- he is an outstanding verbal communicator, emotionally he is an "old soul", and is just a sensitive, intelligent little guy BUT he is not so physically advanced- he is still pretty slow going up and down steps, for instance.  

 

But I'm trying not to categorize them too quickly :-)  It will be interesting to see how they continue to develop and what the similarities/differences are.  love.gif
