the pterodactyl phase

Oh my.  I had forgotten about this stage!  We have entered the pterodactyl phase.  My happy little shriek-er is sooo loud.  And he's up being a pterodactyl at midnight. Sigh.

Re: the pterodactyl phase

  • Oh yeah. And DD1 thinks it's hilarious and imitates it or, if I'm in another room, comes in and screeches to inform me that DD2 is screeching in the other room (as if i couldn't hear it), so I've got 2 pterodactyls flying around. Well, one running and the other laying, but whatever. They both screech loudly.

    BFP1: DD1 born April 2011 at 34w1d via unplanned c/s due to HELLP, DVT 1 week PP
    BFP2: 3/18/12, blighted ovum, natural m/c @ 7w4d
    BFP3: DD2 born Feb 2013 at 38w4d via unplanned RCS due to uterine dehiscence

    Me too! It's too cute.  

     Dd imitates him all the time.  Yesterday, she was walking around with a rattle, and a pacifier saying wah.

  • We are just now in this phase.  With the three year old.  Any time he gets mad, he shrieks like some kind of rabid dolphin.
    Missed m/c discovered 3/15/12 at 8w2d: "Henry."

  • I think DD is finally over her pterodactyl phase. It was pretty funny while it lasted...except at 4AM. That seems to be her time to wake up and try new things out.

    Yes! Mine also communicate through shrieks and babbling.  Then they look at each other and bust out giggling!  It's pretty cute. 

    And pp -- I doubt it's over.  It comes and goes (in Target or the library usually) for years. Stick out tongue

  • Omg, tell me about it! E loves to scream and mostly when you don't anticipate it so it scares the crap out of you!

  • My LO is trying so hard to shriek, but hasn't quite grasped it.  She'll take a deep breath, hold it and squish her face up. It's cute to see her trying so hard :)

  • I love this b/c DH is famous among our friends for his pterodactyl cries. Now that DD has been doing it they have pterodactyl conversations.

  • DD is loving her new little voice. Her eyebrows raise up so high and her mouth opens slightly to let out this ear piercing shriek. A my sisters house the other day, a firework went off in the afternoon, so we only heard the loud shriek and popping. A few seconds later DD sherieked so loud and poor auntie thought a firework went off right next to her. No, just DD and her lovely shriek.

    Ummm... I can't really tell my 2.5 yr old and my 5 mo old apart if I'm in the other room.  Sorry for the bad news. :)

  • Hello ladies! Long time lurker here, but I just had to comment in relief that we are not alone with the pterodactyl that has taken up residency in our home! I'm a FTM and was beginning to wonder if something wasn't wrong with DD! Glad my little shrieker isn't the only one! Cheers! :)
  • Finished that last week and do I ever miss it! E just yells up a storm now like she's lecturing me, her toys, her bottle, the cat, you name it!

  • Haha omgosh, I thought I was alone with this! At first I kept thinking DD was upset at something, but she kept shrieking but smiling. She is crazy loud. My fianc? said they stopped at a stoplight, and she let out one long squeal for almost a minute until they started moving again!
