Alyssa- Teddy was so close to walking for months, our doctor even confirmed that for him it was totally a mental thing, just not wanting to let go. He started walking "for real" at 14 months and 1 day and now he spends all day running around. Don't worry once Evan starts he will catch up really fast.

I agree.

We've been having some sleep troubles the past few nights, which have been frustrating.

Other than that David still has an ear infection in one ear.

Not sure if you know this or not, but chronic ear infections are almost always a food allergy--9 times out of ten the problem is dairy.

Hey ladies, any good recommendations on product for sensitive baby skin? Elia is getting a mean chin/around-the-mouth rash from all the drool. The dr recommended aquaphor, but she's constantly sucking on her lower lip and licking around her mouth and I dont want her ingesting it.

James is sensitive to pretty much everything.

Morgan: Teddy had a very low weight gain between 6 and 9 months. BF babies tend to have a plateau at some point, in weight gain, very typical. He's probably just a little late in a growth spurt of sorts. How long are you at work and typically how many bottles does he get? In table foods you are feeding him may need to be altered... maybe more higher fat foods and less of the grains. Avocados are great.

I completely agree and James was the exact same.

Adrienne: I thought my DH was the only person ever allergic to coconuts (OK, I think he made it up)... so maybe he's not crazy since James is allergic as well.

Morgan: I agree with Adrienne here and I should have mentioned that in my original post... when Teddy weight % dropped between 6 and 9 months he was put on a high fat (high iron too, but that's because he's anemic) diet and that really helped.

"Is Evan more cautious, doesn't like to fall, prefers to examine and learn before trying himself?"

Absolutely. He's very cautious when he's learning to do something, but once he can do something he takes a lot more risks. For example, once he figured out how to climb one stair, he climbed to the top of the staircase with no problem.

He definitely has the physically ability to walk...he walks with a walking toy and is barely holding on with one hand, but he just WILL NOT let go and try it himself for more then 1-2 steps. Even when he stands up on his own (not pulling up), he will sit himself back down before he falls down.

He also doesn't like us trying to help him. If we try to stand him up, he'll just collapse in a heap (and usually gets angry/frustrated). He'll do the same if we try to get him to walk by holding his hands/arms and moving him forward.

I'm just getting SO TIRED of people asking me if he's walking yet, and then having to explain that he isn't, but he's close, but he's cautious, etc, etc.. I find it so frustrating, that i'm practically crying as I write this post. I don't know why I feel so strongly about it...I just want him to walk already!
