Thanks for starting this barista!
Oh goodness... we have FOUR teeth. Jordan will be 17 months at the end of June, and most of her little friends have at least 12-13. Many have molars! I just don't know about the teeth. But it doesn't stop her from chowing down on anything and everything.
She has exploded verbally. Today as I was changing her diaper (she told me "poop" and pointed to her diaper, then made the sign for diaper!
) she pointed and said quite clearly "wall!" I don't even know where she got that from.
The tantrums are definitely decreasing as her vocabulary expands. Usually we say "I can't understand when you whine, please tell me what you would like" So yesterday as we got into the car she was saying "EIEIEIEIEIE!!!!!!!!" very loudly. It sounded like she was just yelling so I gave her the usual schpiel on using her words. So she started shrieking and pointing toward the radio. Turns out she was requesting Old MacDonald (E-I-E-I-O). No wonder she was frustrated! I WAS using my words mom! Get with the program! :LOL
She is also outgrowing the hitting (yes, us too mysonshine). At first I was getting so pissed and I would say NO HITTING! Or GENTLE HANDS! (kinda defeats the purpose when you yell it...
) So I tried saying "ouch! Hitting hurts! gentle hands please" rather quietly and she started patting gently after that, and even giving kisses. It hasn't happened in over a week now that I think about it. So hang in there
