I haven't been getting the notices from here either
Ursula is 27 or 28 lbs (has been since she was 9½ months old)... at her 18 mths well-baby visit, she was 33½" tall... grew 2½" in 3 mths!
She wears a size 6 shoe... normal width.
Clothing? Size 24 mth or 2's... barely ever put bottoms on her though... her bottom is big... esp. in cloth diapers.
She can easily wear other bigger sizes though... she fills them out well! lol Just they might be a little longer... like, she'll want to wear her sister's clothes
Night time nursing... its getting better. Recently, she'd wake up, I swear, every 1 to 2 hrs to nurse! It was driving me crazy! But, I figured it was some sort of growth associated with that and went with it. Now, she wakes up about 3 times a night to nurse... which I can easily tolerate! lol
I can get through a good bit of this because of having an older child who never really night-weaned until I weaned her at 4 yrs old. Not sure at what time, but, eventually, she'd only wake up once a night to nurse. But, I knew she could go through the night because by the time she was 3 yrs old, we'd let her sleep over at her grandparents' house for a night at a time.
Hitting, biting, pulling hair... all things my firstborn didn't really do (she did go through about a month of biting)... Ursula does all of them. Its really driving me insane. My sister and her 2 girls were here from last Tues. to last Sat... her youngest dd is 3 mths older than Ursula and Ursula bit her 5 times in that visit!!! It wasn't like they weren't being watched either! It would happen right in front of us! Now, my niece did push, poke, and scratch Ursula first... but,... yet, Ursula seems to really love other kids... follows them around and imitates them... LOVES babies... will kiss their pictures when she sees them... its just crazy... I see this sweet little toddler of mine... then, next thing you know, she's biting others... and most of the time, its not out of anger. And, usually she doesn't hit or bite me... the only time she hits me is to get my attention. She'll sometimes hit me or grab my hand to lead me to where she wants to go.
Speech... my oldest was talking really early... singing songs by the time she was 2 yrs old. Ursula... she's just now trying to talk. However, like a lot of you have commented about your own children, her understanding is incredible!
Screaming... both of my girls love to use their lungs and vocal cords to scream... I'm SO glad I don't live in apartments! lol
Potty learning... I've been putting her on the potty in the mornings since she was like 6 wks old. Nowadays, sometimes she'll let me know she has to pee or poop. Other times, she just starts pulling at her diaper and complaining about the wetness. And, it doesn't seem to make a difference if she has on cloth diapers or is naked... because if she's naked, sometimes she'll tell me about having to potty, other times, I have to go clean up after her... good thing we don't have carpet! lol
