WOW, our babies are going to be 2 years old this month!!!
Remember when we were all awaiting our babes over at the Pregnancy Forum
Anyways, Amber and I do "Toddler Gym" at the YMCA twice a week. They take the area that they usually have gymnastics in (the big blue padded carpeted rug thingy
) and place tons of push toys, tubes to crawl in, b-ball hoops, swings, slides, climbing toys, etc. for the kids to play on/in. They also have a trampoline and other cushions to climb on. Then at the end we sing songs w/hand motions. She LOVES
it. At first she was so shy, but this has really helped her come out of her shell a bit. We used to do swim too, but last year she loved it and then now she hates it (But she loves her bath). So we are going to wait.
She is now potty learned too. It was all her own doing and has blown me away. Both pee and poop too. My ds didn't learn this until he was over 3 yo and she began at 16 mo. She still wears a diaper for nap and night though.
We didn't vax her for chicken pox either. I did w/my ds and he got a mild 2 day version of it in preschool.
She is a talker and loves to dance, but can be shy around others. She wants to be like brother and do her "homework" when he is doing his (its so cute).
Happy Birthday April Toddlers~
