We're okay with fairly big disruptions to DS' sleep schedule for visits with grandparents, but that's only because (a) our closest set of grandparents live 6 hours away, so visits don't happen very...

We're a little bit of both.  DS (almost 2) has never skipped a nap entirely, but it's certainly been pushed forward or back by up to 2 hours, depending on what we have planned for the day.  Same...

DS is 23 months old and he goes up & down the stairs unassisted--ie, without holding my hand.  But since we're in an apartment, he doesn't have free access to the stairs, which are outside, so I'm...

DS is 22 mos old and has been fully weaned for a month now.  It wasn't fully child-led, as I did help the process along by shortening nursing sessions (I'm pregnant and it HURT!) and offering water...

DS (22 mos) weaned about a month ago.  He went from nursing 3x a day to being completely done in a two week period.  I was really thinking he'd keep going, but he went 4-5 days without asking to...

I'm 19w, and at my appointment last week, I had gained 16 lbs.  I gained 50 with DS, but started out 10 lbs heavier this time around, so I'm hoping I gain a little less, but we'll see what happens.
