Rough Night for the WTT

Today was my switch day for my Nuva Ring and DH just happened to start talking about what if I just didn't put another in next week. It is so very tempting and we talked about how amazing it would be to have another child and for Ashlynn and Baby # 2 to be closer in age and for me to get to stay home with # 2 from birth and What if it ended up a boy? What would we name it ... and on and on and on until we came back to earth and admitted the truth.

Hi I am Mandy- I drop in from time to time. But I normally stay away because when I come here the baby bug hits me harder. lol. Kinda opposite effect on me...anyways...

Why are the doctors concerned? My daughter was only saying moma and dada at her 12 month and the doctor didnt have a problem with that. Also I majored in early childhood development. And MOST children wont say many words till closer to 12 to 18months and even then it wont be much but maybe a new word every few weeks (if that).

Just food for thought on that. Also on my playgroup we got to talking about this whole talking issue and MANY of the other kiddos arent saying much either. But of course there are those that are saying a TON and those that say nothing!! So really I wouldnt stress over that.

Being in earlychildhood education for many years and STUDYING it for many years the brain just doesnt develop all at once. And around a year they are TRYING to master sooo many skills at once that sometimes one will lag for a bit so that they can conqure the other. (For example walking- if they are focusing on that skill, they may not talk as much) Now if you daughter only says moma and dada at 2 I would be concened...but dont stress it. And maybe get another peds advice before sending her for unnessessary labs.

The labs were more to do with the exhaustion :) For the speech we are just waiting a couple months to see if she picks up some more words. She has always been ahead of her markers on everything else. I wasn't really concerned with it at all before the appt and now I'm just making sure that I tell her what things are called, still not really stressing about it. I'm also an ECE major and worked at a daycare up until a month ago when i quit to become a SAHM, so I'm familiar with children developing at different rates. But family history dictates that she may be a pretty late talker. My brothers and cousins were all late talkers so she might just take after them, but I don't want her to be like them if we can help her. My half brother didn't really talk talk until after starting Kindergarten and my parents refuse to admit that he could have
