Sarah - how nice that Eloise is night weaned! It sounds like it was painless for everyone, which is even better! And I'm so impressed with Desmond and how he's falling asleep on his own now. It's so good to hear such positive sleep experiences from another co-sleeping (former, now?) mama :)

Wow, I've been really MIA! I love reading all the updates, all our toddlers are soo cute!

How are my toddlers?
***James is doing pretty good. We went up to the mountains Sunday-Wednesday, and he was sick the whole time we were gone, he wouldn't eat anything (seriously, nothing, I think like one jar of yogurt a day, total) and he had gross diarrhea type poo and tons of blowouts, not fun! Now that we're back at a normal (for us) elevation, he seems to be doing much better, and is back to eating his normal favorite foods!

What words is your baby/toddler saying?
***He can say a lot of words, but he prefers to babble most of the time. The words he says most consistently are "yeah", and "no", but he can also say "please", "dog", "ball", "mama", "dada", "duck", "cup", "cheese","all done", and I'm sure a bunch more that I've forgotten about because he uses them so infrequently. Some days he'll get into a mimic mode and repeat everything you say. My MIL swears he says "I can do it", but it seems like a bit of a stretch to me! ;-)

If you have an older kid, have they said anything funny recently?
*** James really knows the word "no" now and that can be pretty funny, but it broke my heart when he was sick because every food I would offer him he would shake his head and say "no, no" and then push it away if I tried to give it to him :-(

Any new behaviors or new skills that you are noticing?
***climbing, he tries to climb on everything now.

What is your favorite thing about toddlerhood (or childhood) vs. infancy?
***He can do so much more for himself, and he can communicate so many things. I love watching his little personality grow and develop!

Grace glad to hear James is doing so well. Don't you love those little climbers? Eloise's favorite place to be right now is on top of our dining room table. If I turn around for even 10 seconds she will be up on top on the table having a blast.

Ella, no full time co-sleeping for me right now, it is nice. To be fair Desmond will still come into my bed in the mornings sometimes, and I will still go snuggle with Eloise in the morning after DH leaves sometimes, but it is nice having the big kind bed all to myself! I really enjoyed it last time I was pregnant to actually.

As for us, not much new. Desmond is enjoying camp. DH called birth to 5 yesterday and we are going to get his speech evaluated. His articulation is and has been right on that edge of needing help. DH and I keep debating calling and then he makes a huge language leap and we decide against it. Seeing how much clearer all the kids at his camp talk then him though made me decide to go ahead and call. Also a lot of the words Eloise uses are actually clearer then he is, so we figured it was time. So he'll get evaluated and either get speech therapy or not.

In other news my milk supply is definitely down and Eloise wants to nurse every 30 to 45 minutes because of it which is getting old fast, especially since I have semi sore nipples thanks to the beginning of pregnancy. She is eating more solids now which is nice, now if only she would cut down the nursings a bit.

Not many real changes going on here, been pretty quiet all in all. They are both still doing great and I am sure they will have a blast again this weekend when we go to Sesame Place.
