Name: Jessica

DH/SO/PS*: Mike

Kiddos: Gabby

Tell us something each kid is up to: Gabby is walking and talking like crazy. She has her own little language, but we definiately are hearing words. Her Yes is more like "eh" but it works for her :) We we also hear Papa this weekend and she has a few other ones that are escaping me now. She shakes her head back and forth for no, but sometimes I wonder if she just does it because it's fun :) She walks everywhere now and she gets mad when she can't get down and walk. She was pushing the umbrella stroller around the driveway this past weekend at the lake.

I wish I could say she is sleeping more but she isn't...we are laying down some rules/boundaries more for us then her, because I truly believe she is just comfort nursing at night and to be honest after a year of getting up at least 2 if not more times a night. this mama needs her sleep. We aren't letting her CIO more than 10 minutes at a time, but if she wakes up before midnight then we are checking her diaper and then putting her back down. I gave her a sippy cup of water

DH/SO/PS*: Sean

Kiddos: Peter Amias, 1 year

Tell us something each kid is up to: Peter turned 1 yesterday! I still can't believe he's so big; where does the time go? He's still not walking, but he's starting to talk some. He says Mum-ma and Dad-Dad consistantly, as well as Bye and Kitty (anything with four legs). He also says "WOOF" if we ask what the dog says. I posted a video in the other thread from this weekend. He was calling Jack, one of my mom's pups.
We're trying to work on gentle touches since he's so rough with the cat. Sam doesn't mind, but we're getting a new one tomorrow, and I have a feeling he won't be quite so tolerent. I don't want him to be scared of animals, but a healthy respect would be nice. Poor Sam keeps losing clumps of fur.

Are you planning anything special to welcome the autumn season? Sean is already asking if it's time to decorate for Halloween. I'm just looking forward to Thanksgiving. Other than that, I don't know what we'll get into.

Erica can you add me in? I will try to come visit this thread more often! Jensen, birth date 1-9-10! :)

Check in please!

Name: Amy

DH/SO/PS*: DH is Rob

Kiddos: Jensen, 20 months on the 9th!! Can't believe it! And Blake and Elaine due 1-8-12 but to arrive before 12-25-11.

Tell us something each kid is up to: We are currently working on counting to five. We started last week and already Jensen is getting the pattern down. The problem is he does not like SAYING any number but two, but he will hold up the correct amount of fingers. We count on my fingers and if I ask "What comes after one?" Jensen will say "Twoooo" lol. It's SOOO stinkin cute! He is also into saying "ooo wa iz dat?" all.the.time. AND is now saying banana and it's so cute because he says "bana". All in all he says several 2-3 word sentences, knows who ma ma and daddy are, points to my belly and either says two or babies, because we tell him there are two babies in there, and says over 50 words. He knows what the right foot for each shoe is and while he doesn't like wearing them he tries to make us put on our shoes all the time lol. He goes in for his very late 18 month shots on Thursday so I am not looking forward to that. He also has certain dances for certain songs. Rob watches Top Gear a lot and as some of you saw I recently put up a video called "Top Gear Dance" on FB and that is the dance he will do EVERY time he hears the Top Gear music. He literally has to stop what he is doing and do his dance, it cracks me and Rob up every time.

Jensen is getting a LOT better at not hitting but I did notice he slapped my MIL yesterday when she would not put him down. He likes her ok but he does NOT want her to hold him, only my FIL can. But I didn't so much as tell him no, I pretended not to see because after all the racist comments I had to listen come from her mouth on Saturday during the football game part of me felt she deserved it lol!

He is in 18 month gerber onsies but Carter's are still long on him (although he has a few) but he is still in 12 month pants in all brands. He wears 12-18 month shirts, it depends on the neck size because he has a big ole head! At his appointment last month he weighed 24 lbs, only up 2 lbs since his 12 month appointment! So he is a little shorty! He is also only 31 inches, also only growing 2 inches since 12 months.

I think that's pretty much it as far as quick updates go.

Are you planning anything special to welcome the autumn season? Not really. Just trying to make it through this pregnancy without shooting my in laws!!

Amy_ David is the same way. Will not say any number but two. At least he will be able to say his age in a few months.

Amy and Sandy- that's too funny because William will not say one, but will count two through seven skipping six. If I give him a cracker or such, he will look at me and say "no, mama, need two" and hold out both hands. If some one starts counting, he has to count as well. It's quite funny.
