Phew! Just finished catching up w/ both threads!! YIKES, I've been gone awhile! How did that happen. June kinda got away from me....we have TONS of birthdays, including mine and anniversaries in June....
Thanks for J.C's birthday wishes, yes, he's the last little stubborn June baby who held out for July
: I think its because we already had 3 family June birthdays including his sisters, so he waited for his very own month.
J.C is currently running, climbing, getting into everything, and LOVES SHOES!!! He'll bring them to you (and not just his own) and plop down, shove his foot in your face and grunt. Its freakin' adorable!! He actually likes the girls "dress up" shoes best. His favs are Carson's Cinderella high heels....
On the milk issue, we don't really drink cows milk here. Its in the fridge for cereal and the like, but no one ever puts it in a glass. Chocolate milk on the other hand, the girls love. J.C's not had any. He has had yogurt and a tiny bit of cheese on pizza, but no straight cheese. We've just started to feed him what we eat and when I say just, I mean this week.
With his earlier milk sensitivities we've been very cautious in the food offerings. He has had eggs this week and LOVED them. We're veggies, but Im not raising the kids veggies. They do eat meat. Its just that Kya, our oldest, is so picky and at almost 5 years old weighs all of 31 lbs, so I try to get her to eat WHATEVER she wants!! and if that means chicken nuggets or a ham sandwhich now and then, so be it!
Car seat is still rear facing, but like Helen, Im on the fence with that one. We just got a new car and rear facing in the van w/ his convertible seat was tight, but now its fine, so Im thinking of keeping him RF for a little longer. Plus, he's not really a bear in the car, so no real incentive to turn him around, you know. Plus, he's still only waivering on the 19/20lb mark.
He has his first WBV since he was 2mo old tomorrow, so we'll see how big he is. Not really looking forward to the delayed vax discussion, but he's never seen this ped, and I really looked for someone that sounded pretty cool, so hopefully she'll be comfortable w/ our parenting choices and not make me feel like a bad mother. She is a mother of 5 boys (hopefully not circ'd) and I've heard wonderful things about her.
Kerri, the Eulogy was beautiful. You and your family are still in my prayers...
Ok, off to clean up the house for J.C's party this weekend...seems like all y'all did the party thing so long ago and we're just bringing up the rear of babyhood.....sniff...he's a toddler now? WAAAAHHHHH!
