How are all the mommies doing? Here is an August roll call to see who all made the leap over.
Name:SO's Name:Baby's/childrens name(s):How old is/are the LOs:Any new milestones or fun stories:Favorite part of August:
Name: AnnaSO's Name:MattBaby's/childrens name(s): TeddyHow old is/are the LOs: nearly 6 months!!
Any new milestones or fun stories: He's crawling forward now as well as backwards and rolling. He tries to sit himself up (doesn't always work though!) and sits unsupported without toppling over now. He's not really babbling yet, but definitely "talking" more and trying new sounds! We've also started introducing solids and he likes proper foods (like a whole strawberry) better than mashed up food or purees; and he's drinking water from a cup now (which is a relief as he won't take bottles!). He's now into banging things together/against the wall or furniture, which can be very noisy; sleeping in his own room now (and sleeping through again!) and slightly better at daytime sleep.
Favorite part of August: I can't believe Teddy is going to be half a year tomorrow. Half a year! Where did that time go! We also had our wedding anniversary which was fun (we went to the zoo with Teddy) and our first night out together as a couple (MIL was babysitting). Dreading my upcoming birthday though (30 - eek!).
Thanks Katie for my lovely siggy!
Nifty, our own board!
Name: MeganSO's Name: DylanBaby's/childrens name(s): Rylan
How old is/are the LOs: 10 months
Any new milestones or fun stories: He doesn't generally make a lot of noise, but in the past couple of days, he's started letting out these huge, joyful squawks! They sound so funny and clue me in to what his voice is going to sound like when he finally decides to talk: raspy because of the laryngomalaceaand adorable
Favorite part of August: So far, Ry learning to pull to stand on furniture :).
Name: KellySO's Name: CalBaby's/childrens name(s): ElenaHow old is/are the LOs: 2 and a half months already!Any new milestones or fun stories: she slept for 10 hours last night! paranoid mommy had to go and check on her at least once though. Also, she's been cooing up a storm lately - she's been cooing for a while now, but lately you can really see the concentration on her face, like she's really trying hard to form words! LOL.Favorite part of August: the fact that September is right around the corner! Fall is my favourite season, it's the start of a whole string of birthdays (starting with mine) that go right into early January, not to mention it means all the fun holidays are coming soon!
I didn't know about this place! lol.. I'm slow
