So I just got back from the dentist. Had to go for the whole, let me look at your teeth and make sure you really have a problem before I can schedule a real appointment to fix the problem. Yep I have a problem, I was wrong about what the problem was, but still. I get to get a crown! I am just jumping for joy can't you tell. Apparently what I thought was a popped cavity (although a big one) was really my tooth breaking in two places. So I get to go back in a little over a week and get a crown. I am just so happy, I always wanted a crown, though I was thinking more one for my head when I became ruler of all, then one on my tooth.

Is anyone elses lo starting to have "fits"? Ashton is already having little fits. He gets so mad sometimes when I set him down that he starts hitting the floor and smacking it. I don't remember Elijah having fits so soon. I'm not really sure what to think of it. Maybe he is really strong willed. I have taken some pics. I will post them soon. I've been lazy about uploading :

Boy am I cranky today. I woke up to Miss Scarlet banging on me with both hands at 3am. It was 5am before she got back to sleep. :

She has been saying "raaaahhhhh" all day and very clingy. It must be teeth, she's getting her sixth and I think maybe more are coming in on the bottom. Plus, she's only had one short nap today. Can't wait til bedtime.

Sorry, the dentist sucks. I'm afraid I need to go, too.

OMG yes. Johnny doesn't hit the floor but he throws himself back and goes limp and screams.

On a more cute note... a couple days ago Johnny crawled over to the jogging stroller (that we usualy take to the park) and pulled on it and cried, he kept that up for a while despite me trying to distract him so finally I thought he might be tellign me he wanted to go to the park and he calmed down as soon as I put him in...we went to the park and played for about 30mins - he did the same thing today, I was a lazy mommy and didn't take him out today though.

jumping in for a bit
Our internet's been down so I'm connected sneakily right now from some unknown neighbour. We had a well baby visit today and it went really terribly. Ion isn't on the charts weightwise and barely height wise (16lbs and 27 1/4 in) He eats solids voraciously, nurses a good letdown at least 10 times a day and has more chub on his body than ever. I almost don't trust the measurement because he was jumping on the scale. The doctor pressured us to give the flu shot (we didn't) and we had to sign yet another vaccine waiver. He also suggested benadryl for him rubbing his eyes without even looking. And this is from our D.O. who we go to because of his practices in alternative medicine. *pout*

icky-icky... why are there so many narrow minded docs out there?! I am sooo anxious every time we go. So far so good, but we've been dodging bullets.

more doc venting...
They also asked if he was talking and understood and used titles of family members. He says mama, dada, beka, gaea, cat and all sorts of other things but I can't tell if he actually means them. He should also be playing patty cake which he is no where near and just looks at me like I'm dumb.
Are 8 1/2 month olds really supposed to talk??

OMG Hanno, what a crazy doc!! Romi doesn't speak... 8mth old babies babble, practice vocalization. She doesn't play patty-cake, WTH?? I mean, didn't he know he was dealing with Superbaby??

As for the weight, doesn't matter if he's off the charts, Liam weighed 16lbs and was very short when he was Ion's age. I got the whole formula speech everytime we went to a doctor's visit. So much so that I ended up in tears at the breasfeeding clinic, where they promptly told me Liam was just perfect. He was thin, so what? He still had a bit of chub. At about a year old, he turned into the biggest baby in daycare. I was astounded. Proves you just never know!
post #73 of 712
Wow, hanno, I wouldn't listen to that doc! Talking and pattycakes?? I can't even get Finn to play pattycakes and he's 2.5yo.
Was he using the new growth charts or the old ones that are based on formula fed babies? Honestly, I wouldn't worry since Ion is obviously alert and meeting all the (real!) milestones appropriate for his age...earlier if anything!

don't have a lot of time but wanted to comment on this-- zenon started saying words (as i posted a while back with a video) and we were shocked b/c we thought it was so strange. kaylo definately didn't until he was closer to a year and then it was only a few things. patty cake??! that is ridiculous! way closer to a year or probably a lot later...i think it's all silly. don't worry
post #75 of 712
I think I would fall over in astonishment if Scout started saying actual words and understanding their meaning right now. That doctor is full of crap. And pattycakes? No way. She claps her hands, but it is rarely "on cue"...it's just some random thing she does.

Yep, Scout's been starting the "fits" as well. Mainly if I pull something out of her hand that she is not supposed to have. It's sort of cute now...but I know it will get old fast.

I gained 5 pounds over the holidays. (over roughly 3-4 weeks) Wah!

Talking? hahhahahahah...ya right!
Sorry your dr visit was so crappy- that definately is crappy. He sounds stupid. (sorry. he does!)
Not that some kids couldn't. Just most don't.

Hey guys I forgot to mention that the painting on my blog (birth project) amandagreavette.blogspot.com sold! I'm excited, even though I've sold lots of others, this was a labour painting, the first of the birth series, and someone loved it! It was 3x4 feet so it wasnt' a minor purchase. yay!

Congrats on the sale of your painting. It's beautiful...was it hard to let that one go?

Hanno Your doc sounds crazy - Johnny does babble various words, but I doubt he really means any of them - he's never said mama even babbling...patty cake? Umm he doesn't even clap his hands - he barely waves..I wouldn't expect an 8-9mo to do any of those things.

Insane doctor as everyone else said. Desmond can talk, he does connect Dada with DH and he says hi correctly, but it is really rare for him to actually speak still. He also says mama but I don't think it means me yet. He is now say ummm after eating a bite which I think means yummy, but not sure. That being said I really wasn't expecting him to speak yet, so I am shocked he is saying anything in the correct context.

As for patty cake, yeah right, he still isn't clapping really let alone patty cake.
post #80 of 712
We had a bad night sleep wise last night. I tried to get Desmond to bed at 9:20 or so (really early) and he won't go, so I brought him back downstairs, no problem. He was ready at 10 and went right to sleep. Only he woke up 30 minutes later, I'm really tempted to stay with him for the first hour after he falls asleep, but that kind of kills the whole reason for putting him to bed earlier. DH brought him downstairs and we all went to bed around 11:30. He was up every 2 hours (I really wanted another night of only 3 wakings oh well).

Maybe tonight will be better, I can hope anyways.

Oh we bought him a snowsuit yesterday in 2t. We weren't sure the 18 month sized one would work for the rest of the winter so we went with 2t. It is really cute and we got it at a decent price since LLbean has all their winter coats on sale now and we had a $10 gift certificate from when DH got my coat there.
