Why is our board so quiet as we're approaching b-days? Just wondering where everyone has gone?
I know...I was just trying to think up a post this morning actually which I will start in another thread.
Guess things are plateauing? I'll ask a question here...what is the newest development with your LO?
For Tigh its learning to climb on the couches. The thing is he doesn't exactly know how to get himself down yet. DH and I have caught Tigh several times trying to just walk right off the couch like gravity meant nothing. Now that he has learned he won't stop so we had to move anything that level which was dangerous or fragile away (i.e. candles, picture frames). We've been working with him on the descending part by turning him on his tummy and sliding him down that way. Hopefully he will catch on as quickly as he has other things.
What about your LOs?
Sophia's been playing the "Uh Oh" game. She likes to drop things, smile, and say "Uh Uh Uh" cause she doesn't quite have the "Oh" down.
She also does it when she falls. It's pretty cute.

Sophia can do this to get OFF the couch, but she's way too short to climb up. She's tried climbing her toys, but always gets really frustrated and cries at us to get up.
Hadleigh is ALL about walking all over the house right now so she slithers off the couch as soon as you sit down with her. She slides off on her belly and has perfected it and made it quite graceful actually!
It HAS been really quiet! Lots going on over here. I have 3 more weeks of clinicals left before the semester is over- so I cannot wait to be done with all of that for a bit! We will be going out east to visit DH's family right after Christmas- so I know it'll be a bit hectic to be flying with a one year old (well almost 1 on the way there and 1 on the way back!) while 34 weeks pregnant on the way there and 35 on the way back, but it'll be fun too I'm sure!
Ronan is really into giving kisses, lifting his arms when we ask how big he is, and saying "hiiiii", and dancing ALL OF THE TIME! He's standing more and more- always while holding on- so even though he's not walking yet, I know its in the not TOO distant future.
Glad everyone is doing well!
This is Olivia regarding how she gets off the couch. She hasn't been able to get up on her own, but down is easy for her! She's taken her first steps but is too cautious to let go much! She's babbling up a storm lately and "fights" with her brother over toys now - funny, but not!!! LOL
Payton's b-day was today! already one, hard to believe!
She is now climbing........lil too short for the couch, but she gets up on bins and boxes now (i was using some of them to block exits, now i need another baby gate).
She is starting to use more sign language. Not talking much yet, but she makes her needs known
Been cruising furniture for a long time, but will not let go yet..........looks like she might, but then she changes her mind. She can stand but once she notices that we aren't holding her she lowers herself to the floor......just cautious.
