Caitlin loves body parts, but hasn't learned the word nipples yet. She's obsessed with "belbows" lately. She does like to tell random people, "Mama wear heart undies." or "Mama toot potty." Yeah,...

I've got a TALKER here. Maybe 300 words (I stopped counting a few months ago at 100. It's crazy.) Most of the letters, numbers up to 10, names of all the neighborhood dogs, characters from Sesame...

Caitlin will almost always eat yogurt (not helpful for you, I know), black olive slices (fun to stick on the end of your finger) and pear chunks. Also, most soups are good. I pretty much always get...

We've got walking here for about a month. And by walking, I mean running! And yes, some tantrums. So far easily defused by toddler-ese and distraction.

Oh, yeah, I'm ready. Well, as ready as one can be, I suppose. But I fully expect this to go by in less than 2 weeks. By the end of the day she could stop while walking, turn around, and realized...

I've had two PP periods - the first when Caitlin was 11 months and the second about 6 weeks later. That's definitely longer than they were pre-pregnancy, and I think it's common for them to take...
