Kiddo(s) age: DS 18 months

Estimated or known weight and height: checkup week ago he was 27 lb 14 oz & 33.3 inches

Recent accomplishments/milestones: climbs up on everything and has managed to find all our poor cat's hiding places

Favorite activities: empty the dishwasher - clean or dirty - what's the difference mom?; takes all our shoes out of closet and the shoe rack (which leads to one of my least favorite activities putting the shoes back in order :p); likes to ride in his wagon and play at the park

Favorite foods: pizza, edamame; the kid has a pretty big appetite if you couldn't tell by his weight, the pediatrician had us switch from whole to 2% milk because while he is height-weight proportionate now she was worried he may start gaining weight faster based on his growth trend

Anything else you want to share? You probably saw my earlier thread that we found out recently I'm pregnant - EDD in late Feb

Anything else you want to share? We are on round hmmm..... 1 billion of sleep training. Seriously, WTF? Why can he do all these other great things but he will not go to sleep on his own? He only has slept through the entire night one time ever!!! Vent over.

Kiddo(s) age: 19 months

Estimated or known weight and height: 22lbs (13%) even a few days ago at her 18m check. They got 36" for her height, but she was screaming and I don't believe that's accurate because she's pretty short.

Recent accomplishments/milestones: Talking a lot! She just learned how to climb up the rock wall on our swingset. Awesome!

Favorite activities: Being outside!! Going on the 4-wheeler with dh to see the cows. She says "4 wheeler. Ride. Daddy. Moo." Biggrin

Favorite foods: cheese

Anything else you want to share? I am so enjoying her naptime these days! She is a good sleeper, and has been napping 2-3 hours. I really need that break from her.

Anything else you want to share? I'm with Elle in the why won't my kid sleep arena. She sleeps great in my bed, with or without me but won't sleep in hers past 12:30. She still nurses to sleep which I don't mind but last night I put her back to sleep at 12:30 by laying with her for almost 30 minutes, walked out of her room and didn't even make it back to mine before she woke up and was screaming like the world was ending. She has STTN twice ever.

Man I feel your pain! It worries me now that we're working on No.2. I cannot eve imagine having an infant to take care of AND have to deal with a toddler who sleeps like an infant. DS might end up an only child if he carries on like this Wink

I joke that Claire wants to be an only child because she seems to do a great job of interrupting DH and I, if you know what I mean. haha
