Ok, let's see if I can remember everything I wanted to answer here - since I've been MIA for a few days.
I give Jessica Tylenol or Motrin for the teething at night. It does help - when I remember to give it to her that is.
I gave Jesi a bit of peanut butter on some toast a few weeks ago, she licked the PB off the toast and threw the toast on the floor :LOL She likes it! I wasn't afraid to give it to her because there has never been anyone on either side of the family who had any peanut allergies. She's had a few bites of egg white too. There's really nothing that I'm not giving her, except honey. I usually hold off on that until 18-24 months.
I don't think we'll get the flu shot. Jess goes in for her 1 yr check on the 24th and I know the doc will ask about it. If I can get the no mercury shot then I might consider it, if not then no. Mikayla and Danielle both got the shot in previous years but that was before I knew anything about it. We don't go anywhere and Mikayla is out of school a week from tomorrow until the first week of January so she won't be bringing anything home anyway. Dh is the only one I have to worry about. I usually get the shot, but don't know if I will or not this year.
Christy~ I think "insert Senior Name here" is cute - and it's only 2.50 to change it later.
OK, my turn :LOL Jessica took a step last night, actually it was more of a lunge, but it was unassisted. She was standing up with her back to the couch leaning on it and she went forward to get me. She took one step then fell into my arms. She was proud of herself though.
She fell off my bed the night before last. I have a tall bed, 31" from the top of the mattress to the floor. She went over on her belly, did a flip in the air and landed on her back. I was RIGHT THERE too. Scared the bejeepers out of me. I picked her up, dh comes running like her leg had been cut off or something "OMG, OMG, what happened!" I almost had to laugh at him. Anyway, she cried and then threw up onme, that's what scared me. I couldn't get her to stop crying then she just fell asleep on my shoulder. Danielle came in and woke her up and after that, she was fine. She was playing and moving, and crawled over to the edge of the bed - AGAIN! We don't sit on the bed anymore unless it's time to go to sleep.
No more new teeth since the 4 top front ones gave us so much trouble, but I'm not brave enough to stick my fingers in her mouth to check either. She has problems nursing now with the top teeth in, her latch just isn't right, and it hurts. She bites down more, which hurts, my poor boobs are having such a traumatic time right now!
On a good note, my mom is coming to town tomorrow night! I'm so excited! I haven't seen her since July.
