We have a talkative bunch huh? DD is also a parrot but she'll usually only say the word the once or twice and forget.

I have a question about pronunciation. DD cannot produce the "R" sound and replaces it with "ee". More sounds like mow-ee, and water is wat-ee, and if a word starts with an "r", well forget it. Any LO's with similar issues? I'm not super worried about it now but is something I'm keeping and eye on - or would that be keeping an ear on anyhoo...

AiisonR, I know you mean about them doing the opposite of what you say. DD's word of choice seems to be no, even when we try not to give her questions that have a yes/no answer. We've been offering choices and the answer is still no. I'm hoping its just a phase.

Happy Monday! You know, I don't think Atticus uses R sounds too much either. When he water, it's wa-wa. Maybe it's normal for this age?

Pronunciation: Lea does R sounds, but the danish word for mommy is mor, so r is sort of important! She does not do S well at the beginning of words. So Snake is 'nake...

If she sees a picture of anyone with their eyes closed, she says søver (sleeping) and then puts her finger to her mouth and says Shhh in a stage whisper. Cracks me up. Hmm, well I guess she does do S sometimes. Never mind.

Anyone having sudden sleep trouble? The last 3 out of 4 nights Lea has been SCREAMING - as in non-stop, uncontrollable, banging head against wall ENRAGED sobbing. For like 30 minutes straight. At bedtime only. Goes down for nap fine. Nothing has changed in her or our routine. Dh is still holding, patting her to sleep (we co-sleep and I am putting DS to bed in his room at the same time, but we have been doing this for 5 months now, no problems.) Could she already need less sleep? She gets 1-2.5 hours daytime nap, plus 10 hours at night. I think normal? 3.5yo DS goes to bed at the same time and he still NEEDS the sleep. What's up???

No R sounds from Fiona, either. Frog comes out "gog" or "og". I think r's come later developmentally in terms of speech, but I could be wrong. I know that it is a sound that gives even older children problems.

Hope everyone is doing well. The sun is shining here today, which means I will probably be doing bubbles later! New favorite thing to do here.

It's a great day here, too. I'll prob take Atticus to the park after work. It's become our new ritual.

It's a great day here too! I've been outside with the boys most of the day, and I am paying for it now. I am exhausted.

I can't recall Homer saying any "r"s, so maybe he doesn't? I know he does have trouble with s's at the beginning of words (I tuck instead of I'm stuck stands out...)

He learned a new one today - I want chips :. Chips are something I never, ever, ever have in the house - we just don't eat them! BUT I've been so darn sick and my mom brought over some stuff and of course THEY eat chips so they assume we do too and so I let the kids have them and he's hooked. : I'm in serious trouble next time we hit the grocery store, he's going to be pitching a fit when he sees them I WANT CHIPS! Thankfully it was a small bag and it didn't last long with 5 children.

My 4yo has strep, we were at the urgent care place last night. HOpe he keeps it to himself. I have to call my dr. and see if I need more antibiotics or if it's okay to wait and see since I'm completely immunosuppressed on this med. I'm on a prophylactic antibiotic, but not sure how effective that one is against strep (It's more for an opportunistic pneumonia that affects people on chemo).

Hope the rest of us stay well, and 4yo continues on the mend. He's feeling much better today thankfully.

Anyone heard from Dov's mom recently? Was just thinking of her and wondering how she's holding out with the new baby and Dov. for Dov'sMom if you're reading!

Oh my, it seems so looooong ago, our due date club. I used to wonder where some of those mommas went. I know a lot of us were planning home births and such, and maybe when it didn't work out as expected, people just left. (I did, for a while) Or more optimistically, they just are spending more time IRL! But we have a great group now - those that have been here since week XYZ, and those that were lucky enough to find us afterwards!

As usual, I start wondering why I'm not getting emails from MDC anymore, only to realize it's a week into the new month

Lets see what I can answer... Mikaela is in her own crib - has been since about 10 months - but still nurses on demand. I'm starting to have her wait when we're out and about until we can get someplace a little more private, but that's more because she's easily distracted and will leave me totally exposed if I'm not paying 100% attention to her. My son weaned on his 17th "monthaversary," so this is all new territory for me!

Words... she says a lot. I'm sure I'm not going to remember them all:
mama
dah-dee (daddy)
bah-bah (Bob-Bob, her brother)
Oma
at jee-see (Auntie Jessie)
dow (down - means up )
ow (out - can also mean down)
mine
mo (no or noes)
eye
toe
shoe (her favorite)
heh-woe (hello or telephone)
hi
bye-bye
ni-ni (night night)
taco
tuh-ta-toe (tomato)
pee-tah (pizza)
doggie (means dog, cat, squirrel... pretty much any animal)
ju (juice)
yah (yeah - the answer to any question, including our favorite, "Do you want to go skydiving?")
ah-mee (amen - also means "the end" and "all done")
ah-do-tee (1, 2, 3 - any more is just repeating "do-tee-do-tee" over and over )
baw (ball)
baby (baby or doll/stuffed animal or any child)
uh-oh
wow-wow (for her brother's cartoon, "Wow Wow Wubsy"
hi Teve ("hi, Steve" on Blue's Clues)

If we ask her where ____ is, she can identify eye, noes, mouth, cheek, chin, hair, fingers, toes, ear and sometimes elbow.

She sings "uh uh" in pitch to twinkle twinkle/ABCs, some of the hymns/liturgy from church and tries really hard to sing along (a note behind) whenever someone else is singing. Last week she "conducted" the choir at church from our pew in the back. At home, whenever ANY music comes on, she has to stop what she's doing and dance (bounce, spin in circles, wave her arms like she's trying to fly and laugh). Even if there isn't any music, she'll usually start dancing if you just say "dance."

She has used the potty once (to poop - when I stopped her from pooping in the tub... her favorite), but otherwise she just likes to open and close the lid. Since her brother still isn't usually interested in the potty either, I'm planning some major naked time for both of them this summer as it continues to warm up a bit. We're renters of a house with light carpeting throughout - everywhere except the bathrooms and the kitchen. If I can figure out a way to fence off the back yard, we (meaning the kids) will most likely be running naked in the yard quite a bit. Maybe some time indoors in the kitchen, too (the main bathroom just is kinda tiny to spend too much time in there, and I just can't trust M not to poop on the carpet - pee I don't care about because it cleans up easily enough).

As for teeth, I'm not sure about molars, but she has everything else - the last 3 (both upper canines and her left lower canine) have broken through and pushed up within the last 2 weeks... so for baby book purposes, I'll say 4/28 for those three.

Wow, so many words! I don't think Asheby has too many yet. Let's see....

mama
dada
bobba (for Bobbins aka Amethyst)
mimi
hat
lie (for eye)
no (nose)
hat
ear
ba-ball (baseball)
aside (outside)
ball
boo (book)
pops (aka poots, lol)
poopoo
moo (moon)
bi (bike)
ri rove roo (scooby doo for I love you)
nigh nigh
bye bye
boom (when he falls)
bonk (when he bonks his head)
mum mums (food)
and thats all I can think of!

He is also the king of sound effects...
sirens
trains
cars
motorcycles. One of our friends has one and he has seen him start it up, so now when he gets on his riding toys he has to "start" them.

He still wants to be outside ALL day, he would never come in if I didn't make him. He loves to vacuum, which is good because we just bought a Kirby yesterday. OMG. Talk about some bucks. But its SO dusty here and I was saving for a new one.

Asheby loves to dance too. He has a ballerina dance, a bouncing his booty dance, a side to side dance.

Congrats on a 1000 Katie!! I'm catching up to you!
