LOL! Most of the day I get to listen to a chorus of MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MORE MORE MORE MAMA MORE MORE MINE MINE MINE! Haha, Ash! This literally made me lol. Btdt... ;)

Size conversation- I think people just don't know what to comment on with kids besides cuteness so they just say it. Grey is on the high side for height and the low to normal for weight, but everyone used to comment what a big boy he was. It was starting to give me a complex bc he's also a big eater and I become paranoid I was making him fat. When I could see the situation rationally- he eats healthily, is in motion constantly and he was doing what was developmentally appropriate, I told myself no more. And I stopped obsessing. Life has been better since! ;)

Happy 2nd birthday to Simon!

I hate the "why" stage! That one is obscenely annoying to me! LOL

AFM: Zaydren crawled up a stair the other day. Still teething which screws up our sleep patterns, and is uber cranky that way. BLAH! Ready for them to pop so we go back to our pattern. Otherwise all is good. Found he's allergic to raw carrots and egg yolks. Blah! Went to the Parents as Teachers Playgroup on Monday. Its at 9am which is wayy to early for us. But we'll still try to go so he has new friends. And there is a girl there just 7hrs younger than him which is cool. I don't know if I'm a playgroup kinda mom though. The funniest part is Z is almost the youngest there and almost if not the biggest there. Its for babies that were 2-7 months by Sept.

We have passed through the no stage for the time being unless we are out and he doesn't feel like talking to the cashier, etc.

I am sorry for all the sleep troubles, fortunately William has been a great sleeper since the beginning. I'm sure #2 won't be the same. Pay back has to come with how easy William has been.

We also get a lot of nos. Of course it is how he answers every question- unless you ask if he wants a cookie or a treat then it goes noo..yes!

But I just ignore it and try to pose questions that can't be answered with a yes or no. Plus I don't ask him very much right now. Gentle suggestions are given followed by me leading him to the next activity/task :D

We're in the NO phase too, only (like most of Peter's words), it's shouted with a drawl. It comes conplete with scrunched up eyes and dramatic head shaking.

Oh..... I thought it was just that he didn't handle "yes" very well... Glad to know it's normal, although totally annoying!

Sandy,

We've been in that "NO" phase for a few months now. Totally annoying indeed. :-/

Ash- Wait until he enters the "NO"phase. We are in the no phase now. Everything is "NO" even if he wants it. Also he changes his mind constantly which just started a few weeks ago too. Totally annoying but probably totally normal.

I agree, Ash. So many of our sleep troubles have been passing phases. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Jonah's "issues" are going to pass sooner rather than later!

Well, our family has just reached out into the realm of organized sports. Oh, boy...I'm not sure I'm ready for this! Fletcher is officially signed up for t-ball. They start practices during the first week of February. Games (every Saturday) start in March, and the season only runs through mid-May. I'm a little nervous about the time commitment. We guard our family time like gold, so I'm having a little trouble letting go of that. I think Fletcher is going to enjoy it though.

Hi everyone, Posting quick beforeI head to a mothers meet up. Things are going well here Teddy has had a few more tantrums since his first but I realize that they all tend to be occuring right after picking him up from the tagesmutter and that I need to just try and schedule down time for an hour or so then. However I also will just ignore the cries if it happens in the supermarket, etc as he seems to do best if we just continue doing whatever we were doing and he just gets to be grumpy for a few minutes.

It is hard sometimes because he still uses so few words consistently that I can tell he is sometimes just frustrated but can't tell me why. Oh well that is part of growing up I guess :) We do think that he has about 100 words now - too bad many of them he has only said once or twice and then never again LOL! Most of the day I get to listen to a chorus of MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA MORE MORE MORE MAMA MORE MORE MINE MINE MINE. As he has figured out that more is pretty much the only word neccesary to get his point across- and of course what child in a daycare setting or with siblings doesn't learn mine pretty darn quick? LOL He still is speaking almost solely in German but I think just to annoy me :P :D

Also for everyone having sleep hiccups just remember often times it is only a phase. We just went through about 2-3 weeks where Teddy started getting up at 6-6:30 which is WAY too early for us! However I thought it was just a wierd phase and it was- he is back to sleeping till 7:30/8:00 and it is SO great! That extra hour makes all the difference for me especially in this first trimester where I can barely get out of bed anyway.

I hope everyone is doing well!
