Re: *~*Infant Check In*~*

  • Milestones: Nathan is now 6 months old as of Tuesday and officially a crawler as of Thursday! Where did the time go?!

    Challenges: Little man has recently decided he no longer likes to sleep through the night. I will also be starting a second job in about a month so I'm really hoping it doesn't cut into mommy and Nathan time too much.

    Funny/cute stories: Nathan LOVES facetiming with his grandparents! The trouble is keeping the Ipad out of reach so he doesn't keep trying to eat it and his grandparent's faces while he "talks" with them. He sits there and giggles the whole time we battle for the Ipad and talk with my in-laws. He is such a goof! 

    QOTW: Who would play you in a movie about your life and why?
    Jennifer Garner. She just seems so down to earth and fun, plus we have some similar looks which helps. Although, her body is in MUCH better shape than mine. ;)

    Milestones: He has started screeching... Hooray.

    Challenges: Finn still has thrush but it's almost gone thank goodness.

    Funny/cute stories: Yesterday I sat him in his chair while we ate dinner, every time I took a bite he would laugh. Soon he was having a giggle fit, it was too cute!

    QOTW: Who would play you in a movie about your life and why? Jennifer Lawrence, her frank nature is very similar to mine IRL lol.

  • Milestones: He is pulling up to stand on things! Yay! and OMG! 

    Challenges: He is pulling up to stand on things! Need to babyproof! We're chipping away at it but it takes so much time. I got the wrong kind of baby gate for the stairs so I have to return it. :-|

    Funny/cute stories: He got a Scout leapfrog toy and I told him 'give scout your binky' and he did! he took it out of his mouth and tried to put it in scout's mouth. It's amazing (and scary) how much he really understands. 

    QOTW: Who would play you in a movie about your life and why? Maybe jodi foster because she's around the right age and people used to say I look like her. She'd have to gain about 30 pounds for the role though. :(

  • Hugs to @Mattsgirl2004. I'm so sorry mama. 

    Thank you for taking over @MrsWallick!


    Milestones - We saw her physiotherapist this morning and she has made a ton of progress. She can now sit unassisted for short periods of time, and she is getting her legs up under herself like she wants to crawl. She still has a lot of work to do around her shoulders/arms, but the progress is good. Her reflux has also been good lately. 

    Challenges - Some days she can be really whiney, and I never know what to do because if she is bothered by her reflux, I want to make sure that I comfort her as much as I can. But I don't want to encourage whiney behaviour all of the time either. 

    Funny/cute stories - I don't really have anything good, I always forget them when I'm responding to the thread. But E loves bath time so much. Last night she was grabbing as many toys as she could and eating them all, and she was splashing like crazy, it is so cute. 

    QOTW - I never have an answer for this. I don't pay enough attention to celebrities to know what to say.

  • @mattsgirl2004‌ I hope you are taking care of yourself. (HUGS)

    Milestones: nothing really. I'm actually starting to get a little concerned that she's not rolling yet. She doesn't even seem interested in trying. We started a Gymboree class in the hopes that I can engage her a little more during tummy time. It'll definitely be something to discuss with the pediatrician at her 4 month appointment in 2 weeks.

    Challenges: see above. Since she hates tummy time so much I'm having a hard time finding activities for her to keep her off her back. I've noticed the beginnings of a flat spot and my Mom Guilt is in full swing. I have an activity seat for her but she only tolerates that for 10 minutes at most. She's happiest laying on her play mat grabbing toys or her feet. Ugh.

    Cute Story: she loves when I sing "The Wheels on the Bus". I make her legs do the motion of the wipers going "swish swish swish" and she cracks up!

    QOTW: Emma Stone. I don't have any great reason other than her sense of sarcasm in the characters she's played seems to be the same as mine.

  • @Qfrump I remember week 6 or 7 being rough. A child development specialist, my mom, was telling me that around that age they start crying inconsolably to test that their caregivers are going to respond. What kind of BFing challenges are you having? If you don't mind my asking.

  • Milestones: Anabelle started daycare today! Depressing! I love her teacher and she seemed to like her as well. There's 2 other babies in her class, but both were absent today, so she had all one on one on her first day, which was nice.

    Challenges: I go back to work tomorrow. I'm not sure how I'm going to be able to function for a day of work with Anabelle still waking up twice in the middle of the night.

    Funny/cute stories: We took her to the beach for the first time! We lasted all of 15 minutes before we called it quits and went home. She slept the entire time, but it was so hot and even under a tent with a fan, she was still sweaty.

    QOTW: Who would play you in a movie about your life and why?
    Rachel McAdams... She's cute, fun and a little quirky/ ditzy. Andplusalso, Ryan Gosling.

  • @okiewife2011 Wow! 6 months and crawling! How exciting! Get ready to be running around like crazy haha.

    @serenla Glad to hear the thrush is almost gone. And baby giggle fits! The best!

    @bootsorhearts Not looking forward to baby proofing either. That boy is on the move! And so cute (and true) how much they understand even when we don't realize it.

    @qfrump BBQ is 6 weeks! Ahh! Sorry to hear about breastfeeding issues. Anything we can maybe help with?

    @km_md Yay for sitting up and getting a foundation for crawling!

    @lunabug924 I'm having the opposite problem with tummy time! She actually likes it and just falls asleep smiling at her toys, instead of trying to kick and push her legs. Then I have to flip her and she hates it. Hopefully her pediatrician can give you some guidance and/ or reassurance.

  • Milestones:  M turns a year on Saturday!  How did that happen?!?!  She's still an infant if she isn't mobile, right?  Momma is so not ready for this!

    Challenges: Still lots of gross motor delays.  We have her 12 mo check-up on Sept. 2.  If she's not crawling by then, we are going to do a re-eval with ECI and/or private PT.  M has also decided she is done breastfeeding, so I'm slowly doling out my freezer stash. 

    Funny/cute stories:  I jokingly sniffed M's little foot a week ago, and said it was stinky.  She thought it was hilarious.  Now when we are down on the floor playing, she will stick her toes up toward my face for me to sniff.  It causes crazy belly laughs, so now I am constantly sniffing her "stinky feet."

    QOTW: Who would play you in a movie about your life and why?  Not sure.  Who does overly emotional hot mess well?  That would be me for the last month or so.

    TTC started Oct '10

  • Milestones: He's two weeks old and I think he's probably gained at least a pound (will confirm at the pediatrician's tomorrow).

    Challenges: He's generally fussy when he's awake, so we are trying to be patient while determining what schedule/pattern works best for him.

    Funny/cute stories: Our dog has appointed herself the official diaper sniffer. She also gives us a look when he's crying that seems to say, "well, are you going to do something about that?"

    QOTW: I have no idea who would play me. Maybe a younger Helen Hunt? She and I look alike and seem to have a similar demeanor.

  • @2redtulips‌ that is so funny about your dog! Ours gave us the same look when DD cried for the first few weeks. Now they know that we will take care of her, so they don't even pick their heads I up anymore. I love watching dogs and babies interact!
