Hi everyone!<br><br>
So, Zoe and I just got back from going to my sister's graduation. We flew from Maine to Portland, OR, and it went OK. Long flights were a little stressful, but it was all OK. That said, life is pretty good here. DD is pulling herself up on everything that comes within a three foot radius, and crawing to things that don't, so she can pull herself up. She has five teeth, and is eating a bunch of veggies. Her hair is growing, and she is growing longer. Zoe is way more opinionated as of late, she knows exactly what she wants, and refuses to be distracted until she gets it. So she is having frequent melt downs these days. Unfortunately, I cannot let her have the power cords. Or the phone book. Or the woody bits next to the woodstove. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> But she is talking a lot. She says mama and nana (nurse) and papa and bye bye(while waving, although she does it after she or the other person has left the room) and lots of other syllables, where she looks like she is really trying to communicate something, but it comes out dadada.<br><br>
So, how are your dc doing? Any walkers yet? More teeth? Words? Funny stories? Check in, tell all about your little one <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

My ds is 9.5 months, Ahmet Atilla, named after my late FIL. He is crawling and eating table food. bypassed all baby food, store bought. Loves to smile, laugh, be outdoors,nurse and sleep in mommy's arms. He has two bottom teeth in and three upper ones on there way. We are leaving for a trip to Turkey on Monday. I am so grateful he still nurses a lot :).

We are doing great here! DD has been pulling up for a while and a few weeks ago took her first step!! Then, last week, she took 3 in a row! It's amazing! Not much of a talker in words just yet. She waves and says "fish" sounds more like "vissssh". It's so cute and funny! Still has 8 teeth, been woking on some more for us. Boy oh boy! She doesn't eat any solids regularly-but we give her usually one sort of meal a day and she likes to try to eat paper or fuzz balls on the carpet. DD has these occassional meltdowns too missbliss-thought it was only us! ha! They aren't real often-but when they happen she is usually sitting up and then just flings back to a lying down position! It scares me! We're trying to figure out what triggers them right now. It's looking like when she is tired mostly.<br>
Glad you started this thread! Can't wait to hear about everyone else's DC! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hi, all I have not replied in a while, but I have been reading.<br><br>
DD is 9.5 months old and was at the dr last week (for big sis) and weighed 16lb 6 oz. She has 5 teeth, but #6 will be here in the next few days, you can see it. DD has just started "crawling" since Saturday. She crawles the same way dd#1 did, by sitting up and using her legs and arms to scoot, but she can really move! She is also starting to pull up on everything and then lets go and can stand for about 30 sec before she falls. #1 started walking at 10.5 months, so this one may not be far behind.<br><br>
Gen says Moma, dad-dad, Hi, Abba (for big sis) and waves, and "talks" non-stop. She is a very lovey baby and constantly gives hugs and kisses. SHe also HATES to have anything she thinks she needs taken away from her and crys and throws herself backwards.<br><br>
Gen will only eat what we are eating - she will not eat any baby food. She is mostly BF, but likes to do what we are doing, so if we eat, she will too.<br><br>
We think she is very texture sensitve. She will not eat anything mushy or with a grainy texture. She also hates grass and carpet. Has anyone ever had a heard of this?<br><br>
Hope you all have a great week!

Hi I'm new here! DD born on 8/20/03. She cut her first tooth a couple of weeks ago and I think the second will pop through any day now. She's not crawling yet but she is regularly getting up on all 4s and rocking back and forth - any day now!<br><br>
Solids are hit or miss. Lately the only thing she will eat are steamed carrots and cheerios!<br><br>
She squirms if I try to sling her and often pushes away when I try to hold her. My babe is way too independent for me already!!

Delilah is doing great. She has four teeth now. She's pulling herseld across the floor, trying to pick herself up and crawl. Breastfeeding is going beautifully. She's just starting to get into solid foods. Last night I mushed up half a banana with some rice milk and nutritional yeast and she ate it all. I was suprised that she finished it.

I am a new to this board August mommy. Maggie will be 9 months at the end of the week - where has the time gone? She has 2 teeth in and two more just cracking through. She is a VERY fast crawler, loves climbing stairs, tables, chairs and anything else she can pull herself up on. She is cruising and can stand on her own for a few seconds, but no steps yet. Her favorite word is "hi", she says it to everyone, even the cat, and waves while doing so. We are teaching her sign language, so she signs for "milk" whenever she wants the boob! She hates being fed with a spoon and insists on doing it herself. Dinnertime is always messy, but her pincer grip is perfect and she does a pretty good job of feeding.<br><br><br>
I am having so much fun with her. She is the coolest person I know.<br><br>

Kai is 9 months old now. He figured out crawling after a month of rocking back and forth on his knees. He isn't talking much, he only says boo when he is wanting the boob. He is eating food, Os, noodles, lots of veggies. We started yogurt and he loves that. He had some mushed up chicken the other day. He loves bread. He doesn't eat very much, but likes to be able to.<br><br>

My dd Aria is so much fun - every week she interacts more and more, it's so amazing!! (can you tell I'm a first-time momma? LOL).<br><br>
Ari has four teeth - two top and two bottom. She just started waving bye-bye with a LOT of prompting and clapping she does it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> She's gone on strike from pureed baby food and will only eat finger foods - but only if I feed it to her. She'll grab food but just moosh it in her hands and then drop it.<br><br>
No crawling, but she likes to grab onto people and the back of the couch to pull up into a standing position. She goes from laying down to sitting up to leaning forward to tummy-squirming to lying on her back again in no time flat.<br><br>
We just had her 9 mo. checkup yesterday, she's 18 lbs and 27 inches. We used her new carseat (grew out of the infant carrier) for the first time on the way to the dr. We also just got her a bike helmet and so she rides in a trailer behind me when we ride bike in the evenings. Winnie-the-pooh is strapped into the seat next to her. LOL.<br><br>
We're just having sooooo much fun!!

Hi everyone! Hi Jess! I haven't posted but I have kept up with you all so far- just never able to easily type! I really enjoy reading about how all of your August babies are doing!<br><br>
Well, just in the past 24 hours something has been up with my little guy. He has been sooooo fussy. He didn't settle last night until after midnight (normally goes to bed around 6:30) and has been miserable most of today.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> There are no signs of teething, no illness that I can see, just misery. He was a fussy baby for about the first 5-6 months and with time has gotten much happier. He's just an intense little guy!<br><br>
Anyhow, my biggest news is that on mother's day weekend, and on his 9 month birthday, he started walking! He's been primarily walking ever since. He took his first steps about 2 weeks before that. I cannot believe my little guy! Last night when he would not settle he would stand up in the bed!<br><br>
He just recently took to solids. I offered but he was totally not interested until he was about 8 1/2 months old. Even now he mostly makes a mess, but knows that food is for eating. He prefers foods that he can feed himself. Like many of your babies, never liked mush. He literally would not let pureed baby food pass his lips!<br><br>
I can't believe how fast his babyhood is going by!

Hi everyone! Yanek still has nooo teeth and variable interest in solids, but most of the time willing to try out new stuff. Crawling and pulling up to stand since a while, standing alone just since a week or so, for seconds.<br>
Lots of syllables and babbling, but I cannot detect any meaning to any of them yet. I am more or less expecting him to be a late talker since he hears 3 different languages spoken to him. We'll see. Actually, he might talk right on schedule, it'll just be a while before we understand him, lol.<br>
He does make his wishes very clear though, and has an occasional minor fit (preview of toddlerhood??). Oh well. We're having a blast and he loooves his new sitter who has two small kids and takes them outside to play all the time (used to go to daycare), I'm so happy (wish I could be her though..) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Great to hear all the update! And welcome new mamas!<br><br>
Zoe is also now refusing to eat anything that needs a spoon. Finger foods are the only acceptable thing. And then, only if she puts them in her mouth, usually after squishing them and dropping most on the floor. The dogs adore feeding time :LOL If I manage to poke something in her mouth, she takes it out, looks at it, and drops it on the floor <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
Also, today we went to playgroup, and after watching the older kids run around, she started standing on her own. It is funny to watch her, it is like she doesn't realize that she can't walk yet. She'll stand there, and then it seems like she tries to take off running, and falls down, then pulls herself back up, and repeats the whole sequence. I am also really looking forward to the end of the oral phase. We played outside today for a long time, and I spent the whole time prying rocks, sticks, leafs, hay, etc out of her mouth. And I am certainly not opposed to her ingesting non-food organic matter, I just don't want her to choke <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">:

My dd wakes up every couple of hours to nurse, but I guess I'm used to it by now because my 3 1/2 year old has never slept through the night. Though lately, he's waking up to go to the bathroom, which beats him wetting the bed.<br><br>
Does your baby sleep with you? It's really helped me to nurse lying down at night.

Mine wakes up constantly throughout the night. Last night was the only night it has really affected me. I had to work yesterday and was up close to 21 hours before we went to bed. Having her sleep with us is wayyyyy easier IMO and usually doesn't even wake me!

Hey everyone. It's so interesting that they are all the same age,and at such different stages, kwim? Samson only has two teeth, and they only came about two wks ago.<br>
He can crawl, but rarely does so, he's happier standing (holding on to furniture), or cuddling...He's a huge cuddler.<br>
the pic I posted, Sammy is the redhead,but the two boys are 10 days apart, hard to believe!!!!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie">

Yanek wakes up anywhere from 3 to 10 times a night, and he does sleep with us, and I do fall asleep nursing too, but I still get really tired sometimes (I have to be up at 6 to get ready for work). For a while he was doing great, just waking up twice between midnight and 6 am, but lately he's been really restless from 4am onward or so. Maybe he's finally teething.. (still nothing!)

Christopher is nursing maybe 4 times per night. I honestly have no idea- once I'm out, I'm out. My first child trained me well.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
My only real complaint is that he goes to bed around 6:30 and it's so hard to put him down without him popping up every 15 minutes. I usually hold him until I go to bed. That and the fact that he wakes up at 6 am.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hammer.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hammer"><br><br>
Samsoliel- Samson is such a cutie! Love the red hair!<br><br>
My little guy's hair looks like it's growing in red, but it's hard to believe considering my dh's hair is black. My dad's hair is red though. I think C's will be more brown as he gets older, but it looks pretty red when the sun is shining on it.<br><br>
Here he is:<br><a href="http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/ViewPhoto?u=4159200&a=31237857&p=68105148" target="_blank">http://albums.photo.epson.com/j/View...857&p=68105148</a>
