Tanya's babe is younger - 10 days I think. But E's been teething nonstop for almost 3 months now. :

HI PAV!!!! How's it going?

(I'll be here all day, folks. My only goal in life today is to get some laundry done, so lots of internet time in between )

SARENKA, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Enjoy your day and may it be the best year yet.




OMG, juicy! Those teeth are outta control.

And Mattie, STANDING? Again, someone control that child.

Amara is sitting well, and her forte seems to be almost-crawling (she leans forward and balances on her feet for many minutes) and singing. When I sing to her, she pitches a high tone and tones along with me! It's kind of amazing.

JessJoy, I am seriously thinking about that dancing-with-toddler video. How FUN would that be? My prob is that I teach adults, and teenagers, and have to really rework my wiring to teach (or entertain) the younger set. I wouldn't take it all too seriously at first, but then, who knows???

Hey, Juice, awesome teeth on that litlle guy. My dd1 was like that, but not this one. I also wanted to mention to you that wi the link you put above, I can see all your pics. I can delete this if you want. I just wanted to be sure you knew and for some reason, i can't pm you.

I would offer to nurse after a meal. Sippy cups at this age are pretty much just for play/learning. It takes time to figure out that there's something inside that they can ingest, so nursing can take care of his thirst requirements.

The dental developmental king! And I the shades. We like wearing ours in the house, too. I must say that I also love your pink bathroom. We had one in our house in LA before we moved here. Pepto pink. Shower and halfway up the walls, too.

Pav! We've missed you!

homeopathy question

The dd's have a cold and I got some of Hyland's Sniffles 'n Sneezes 4 kids. I've given it to dd1 but I want to make sure it's ok for dd2. The bottle has dosage for 2+ years. I think it's ok based on my simple understanding of homeopathy. Here's the ingredients:

aconitum napellus 6x hpus
allium cepa 6x hpus
gelemium sempervirens 6x hpus
zincum gluconium 2x hpus

squirmy babies make for tricky typing.

jjoy, thanks for the headsup - I make all my yahoo albums public, and I just don't put anything in there that I don't want the whole world to be able to see...

Tanya, if you want pepto pink you should see my livingroom! We've been meaning to paint it for, uh, three years but we can't agree on a color.

I don't want pepto pink. I had it and we lived with it because the tile was still in excellent shape. I found a striped shower curtain at Target that was primarily pale yellow and green with a very thin pepto pin stripe to tone down the pink. I love the colors the previous owners used in the new place (well, new to us ).

Mattie with the standing is nuts. She's all over everything. She doesn't just wanna stand she wants to stand on everything. So she pulls up on the couch, gets down, crawls to the chair and so on.
That's incredibly cool that Amara sings along with you. You gotta get tha on video. Sounds super cute.
With regards to the dancing, I was thinking teaching the adults and just having Sol do her thing next to you. That's what we used to do with yoga.
But I don't really know what bellydancing invovles so that may not be possible.

It takes some time to get a back carry. Just keep trying. You'll get it.

Daisy and Mattie seem to be synchronised. She's so happy standing now that it has actually slowed down her mobility! She still likes going up and down steps though - bit of a challenge...Can Mattie sit? Daisy just can't be bothered with that...
It's my birthday today!! 37! :
That's cool that They are moving along at the same pace. It hasn't slowed her down much as she likes to move around and stand different places. And she squirms in my lap. She actually mastered sitting and standing in the sam day. But she can't sit herself up, we have to put her there. And she doesn't stay that way long.

I offer her a sippy cup of water during play times. This child is loving food and I'm a little nervous about losing my breastfeeding birth control. I also want her to get maximimum breast milk. So I limit her solids and I nurse her before I feed her and after and I only give water when she's not hungry or thirsty.

Okay I gotta go. Mattie is trying to jump off my lap. Emma is whining. And there are various stinky smells in the room.

My baby has turned into a squealing banshee. Ahhhhh Ahhhhhh Ahhhhh is all she says and it's LOUD. The first few times I heard it she startled me and I turned to tell dd1 to please use her inside voice. They don't understand inside/outside voice at 5 months, do they?
post #695 of 822
They most certainly DO understand inside/outside voice and should be properly disciplined if not. Then you can hand them a worksheet of long division.

Just wanted to say that it's better than seeing your child choke. But i get what you mean. Yeah it looks weird.



I'm also behind, just wanted to say hi to everyone.

Could someone please convince this boy to nap for more than 10 minutes??? He's killing my productivity! He wakes after 10 minutes NO MATTER WHAT I DO. Hod him, put him down, nurse him, it doesn't matter. In the MT or the ergo - 10 minutes and he's up and raring to go - for the next half hour and then he's grumpy again. I'm over it, thank you.

end rant
post #698 of 822


holy teeth, juice!

laura, way to go! oh, and re: porn star boobs, i have heard they go down either when you start to introduce more solids or when the child weans. i did not need bigger, but i gotta say, i'm enjoying the fact that they are, er, perkier.

mattie is standing?! wow! still not even rolling here, though he is sitting like a champion. no babbling, either. i think ds is gonig to be like his dad - late for everything.

sarenka, : : (must resist bad math joke, must resist ... nope can't do it) enjoy being in your prime! :

tanya, we had squealing and screeching here for quite a while. touch wood, but it seems to be over.

elsanne,

tricia, how is your ds feeling now?

cori, it took a huge struggle for me to get that back carry. i think i could do it with a couch no problem, but i can't always count on a surface being available, so i'm really working on being able to do it standing up. the trick for me was juice pointing out that his head goes on the other side of my arm as it would if i were just holding him on my hip.

At least yours has napped 10 minutes today. Mine has been up since 6:45 am and the only nap she took was the 30 minute ride home from Wild Oats.
post #700 of 822
screeching: also seems to have passed, please. please. It passed once and came back so I'm crossing my fingers.

mesh baggie for solids: I'm in the eeew camp, sorry to say. If they are gagging/choking that much, it's too solid or they're not ready, according to my lazy methods
