Jenn - glad you're still with us :) If Ashley is like my SP, I'm sure she's finding plenty of things to entertain herself lol

Hey Megan! Glad you and Ashlynn are doing well. You probably already have found these resources, but just in case, here are some sites that might be useful:

Ashley has been doing the same thing - saying down no matter what direction she wants to go! She started saying up for everything, then switched to down (I guess because I was trying to emphasize the word when I put her down)... and now she occasionally will say the words properly, but usually still says down for everything.

I'm here! I haven't been here much recently, but may try to get more active, especially since "things" are going on right now with my SP, Adam!

When I say, "Things", I mean we're entering into the realm of Terrible Twos! I'd always heard it starts around 18mos, and that it hits earlier for boys--I never went through the Terrible Twos with my daughter, it was more like the Horrendous Threes! But anyway, Adam is doing the hitting, throwing, and tantrums--none of them MAJOR, but all of them more than I ever dealt with for my daughter. So looking for advice from BTDT moms of terrible tots!

In other news--I'm pregnant with #3, due at the end of September. Just this past week I've moved my little guy into my daughter's room. We'll work on transitioning them into Roomies, before I tackle the transition to a big bed come August.

Life is good, albeit hectic, and certainly with considerable ups and downs....

Congratulations Krista! My SP s going through the terrible twos as well. I've been trying to ignore the occasional tantrum or distract him. No hitting or throwing yet thankfully. No real advice - I'm just hoping it's a short phase!
