Happy Friday, mamas! Can you believe I'm here like 3 times in one month?
The girlie is gathering pillows and blankets for our Friday Night Nest, so this will be a quick post-by before I'm off to watch library videos. Sorry, but I at least wanted to add my two cents here and there, for what that is worth.
on teeth - Boo didn't have a single tooth until she was over 15 months old. My husband's grandmother actually blamed it on my breastfeeding her
I think, at age almost 6, she's incredibly bright - and has a gorgeous smile to boot (but I might be a little biased) I guess you'll have to check back with me in half a decade or so for the puberty thing
on sleep - we're very "musical beds" at this house. Sometimes all four of us are in the same bed, sometimes just me & the kids, sometimes Boo sleeps all night in her bed, or JuneBug starts off sleeping on his own (especially if he falls asleep before 8pm) but ends up in the family bed later. No one is banned from our bed, but it does seem that we all have different sleeping needs, you know? It works for us.
Max says words: "uh oh" "up" "go" and "mamamamamamamama" and he points to things. And turns into a howler monkey when he's displeased. But, you know, he's also been walking since a few days before 10 months old. My brother frets a bit that my neice, who was born the same day, isn't walking yet, but she is says SO many words and even simple phrases so I figure it all balances out.
My daughter was a "late" walker and talker (which went over real well with the in-laws combined with the no teeth yet thing
) ... but must have been perfectly on track for her, you know? On the other end, she's an "early" reader, teaching herself to read last summer. I learned to chuck out those developemental milestone charts (or at least take them with a HUGE grain of salt) and just let it go and not worry ... (easier said than done, sometimes, I know) In the room full of five year olds today I can't pick out who talked last or walked earliest or whatever, you know?
Okay, off to watch Veggie Tales (do my friday nights rock, or what?)
