Just watched Sicko (Michael Moore) for the 2nd time with DS and DD#1 (the LO was asleep in bed). DS wants to move to Norway and DD#1 to France...for the socialised medicine.

Good morning!

climbing - yup, that's Omiros too. There's no way to gate off my stairs at the bottom, and he can be up them in a flash! Coffee table, couch, chairs, you name it.

Sleeping, like a pp said if he eats something later in the evening he usually sleeps much better. He wakes about once/night along toward morning.

Nursing lately has been a challenge, as it's all he wants to do. He's been teething and sick, and I have been unable to put him down without him crying. But holding/wearing is not enough, he must be attached to the boo. I hope it slows down soon, truly. He is wearing me out!

OMG! I am right there. Atticus is like a fifth limb lately. He's completely attached to me all the time, via the boob. He's teething right now, but I'm about to go crazy!!!!!!!

We are with you too! I called my lll leader the other night because I thought something was wrong - like I just ran out of milk But she assured me it was just teething & her age. But still enough already!

Thanks mamas, at least it's nice to know I'm not alone! I don't have dh's support anymore, he thinks I should wean (due to my own health issues), so it's a bit rough. This too shall pass though.

I am so glad to hear all of you saying this. We went to visit a friend today who is exclusively breastfeeding her four month old, and DD nursed more frequently than he did!!! I too was starting to wonder if something was wrong.

DD is still biting, and it frustrates me. I am so afraid that telling her that she can't nurse (when she bites me) is going to lead to her weaning, and I don't want that. I am pretty worried about it.

On a side note, where do you all recommend going for play kitchens? Any likes or dislikes? Any important features? We have some money from relatives for DD for Christmas, and I was thinking of getting her one in the spring.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Same here for the nursing. He seems to nurse more now than he did as a newborn,

I can't help with the kitchen recommendation, I don't know anything about that.

Omiros was biting like crazy, and I started pulling him off as soon as he bit and closing my shirt/bra and saying "Biting babies don't get boobies." Very calmly. Which was very difficult sometimes because it really, really hurt! And he would sit on my lap and have a little temper tantrum, and after a few minutes we'd try again. It took a little time, but he finally got it and hasn't bitten for quite a while now (knock on wood!)

Asheby almost always ends up in the bathroom with me, because he can't stand for me to be out of his sight these days. Well, I guess he has always been that way, Amethyst and James leave the door open when they are in there also, so he has seen the toilet used a lot.
Anyhoo, he has started copying the noises and facial expresions of whoever is doing there business And he always tries to see the results, ewww. Well, just now I was peeing and he started pulling his pants down!!! I think he wanted to go on the potty!! I sat him on the toilet with his pants on, just to give him an idea of what its like.
He tells us when he poops or poots by making sound effects and he always hides beside the couch while going, so he knows whats going on. Do you guys think I should get him a little potty? Since he is so interested? Amethyst was 27 months when we potty trained in a day.

FIL is a carpenter and made Atticus a potty for his bday. He mostly just plays on it like it's a normal chair. I'd say go ahead and get him one. Maybe just so he can sit w/ you while you go.

Hi Ladies!

Emerson is a climber too! Just this weekend, he climbed onto a dining room chair onto the table and stood up. He was mad at me when I brought him down. He also loves to climb and stand on the coffee tables. He will swat at my hand if I try to hold him. He has quite the personality.

I love Asheby's apron! So cute.

Aww, thanks! It's actually Amethysts but I put it on him, cause I'm a nerd

Where is everyone? :

For some reason, we have been blessed with 60 degree weather here in Upstate New York, so we have been outside. DD loves being pulled around the neighborhood in her wagon - she sits like a little queen in it. So funny.

What kind of wood kitchens do you all like? Are any brands better than others? Would love some opinions.

It's been crazy warm the past 2 days here too. I had to go for my follow up ct today, will get results tomorrow. Everybody send your positive vibes that there's nothing there!

I agree, MPsSweetie, get a pottie even if it's only to sit on and get used to if he's showing interest. So funny about making the faces.

It's been warm here, too.

Okay, I'm really bummed. I took Atticus to library story time today, and he was so wild. It was with other kids his age group, yet he was the only one hitting and throwing things. The other toddlers seemed fine. I was so embarrased. I've been worried about his behavior recently, and this just made me paranoid.

warm here as well (indiana), nearly hit 70 yesterday but today while still warm it's been rainy.

i wish i would have gotten a wood kitchen for dd1, unfortunately we got what she was asking for....the dora kitchen ( we did remove the big dora off the side of ut ) but whatever. it's still this big plastic eyesore

we will deffinately replace it with a wood one for dd2 when she gets closer to 2!

Weather around here is nutty too. Sunday, DS and I had a nice outing in the park, but I'm at work crazy hours nowadays so we don't get to enjoy this week. And he has the nastiest cold -- he can't nurse (though he lies in bed with my nipple in his mouth), his eyes and cheeks are all swollen, and his cough is just horrible. He's only running a low fever, but he looks so awful that MIL keeps calling to ask me about taking him to the doctor -- I just don't think a doctor will do much for a cold. I want to move him out of my bed before baby comes (37w6d!), but it's getting closer and closer and I don't have the heart to move him in this condition. Besides, I'm gone so long each day it feels like nighttime is the only time he gets to spend with me. I've been feeling rejected because he's refused to give me any kisses these past three days even though he'll kiss DH while in my arms. I know he loves me; he screams bloody murder if DH tries to take him out of my arms, but he won't give me a kiss and I don't know if it's because he feels rejected when I'm gone all day or because he just thinks it's funny. He does give me spontaneous hugs...

I'm sure it's nothing personal. But I'd be upset, too, if Atticus suddenly didn't want to kiss me.
