Offer is in. . .
Ooooooh....fingers crossed? Is it one you like??
good luck Anna!
Jackie, Lucas had a piece of cheese bread for lunch. he wouldn't eat anything else
Molly, that would be a shock!! it's a similar situation to mine except her husband wasn't abusive.
just came back from Lucas' two year appt. Ya, we were late. He is 32 inches and 25 pounds. I believe she said he was in the 10th percentile. and a little small for his age. She also said he was behind because he didn't say enough sentences. Not a surprise, he is always "behind" in something when we go. Oh well!
What a peanut! These things are so inexact anyway--you can tell from the Halloween pictures how much taller Adair is than Teagan...and the doctor's measurements were only 2 inches apart. No way. I don't know why they still measure them lying down like babies...standing at the wall or chart seems much more accurate to me! Addy squirms around so much on the table but will stand against a wall long enough to make a pencil mark just fine.
Aiden is only 32" too (taken against a wall :lol:)! But he's about 27.5-28lbs. And not saying enough sentences?! Ummm.....I thought at 2 years they're just looking for words and two words put together counts as sentences. :p Cause Aiden doesn't really talk much at all. Or rather it's mostly toddlerese that no one understands.
Aiden had a corn dog and mandarin oranges for lunch. Once I remembered to feed him. Ha. He "talked' to his Nana (my mom) on FaceTime for an hour. He played in the bath tub for over an hour. Now he's watching Cars 2. We've survived!!! Kid has been yawning, but I'm not going to press my luck for a nap with my recent track record. ;) About to leave for DH's squadron potluck anyways. I did get the cupcakes baked. I'll frost tomorrow.
Yay for survival!!!! Yeah, that's my understanding too...two word sentences. From the AAP:
"It’s human nature to measure your toddler’s verbal abilities against those of other children his age, but you should try to avoid this. At this time, there’s more variation in language development than in any other area. While some preschoolers develop language skills at a steady rate, others seem to master words in an uneven manner. And some children are naturally more talkative than others. This doesn’t mean that the more verbal children are necessarily smarter or more advanced than the quieter ones, nor does it even mean that they have richer vocabularies. In fact, the quiet child may know just as many words but be choosier about speaking them. As a general rule, boys start talking later than girls, but this variation—like most others mentioned above—tends to even out as children reach school age."
Have fun at the potluck, Jackie!!!
have fun at your potluck!
Aiden, you better give your poor mama a break!
Anna, good luck with your offer!
Janice, he sounds fine to me.
Sorry I haven't really been around much lately. I got slammed with stuff I have to do for my grad school project this week (stuff I was not aware I needed to do). And I've got a bunch of stuff I have to do over the next month that is probably going to consume most of my time. And DH and I are trying to paint the house, as I mentioned before. He was off this week, so I spent as much time as I could at home so we could paint, but then I found out about all the crap I have to do this week for grad school so it hasn't been relaxing for me. We did get the kitchen painted though.
Then the girls and I have all come down with a stomach virus, not a pukey virus but the other end. And nausea. And exhaustion (and I know it's not just pregnancy exhaustion because the girls are lethargic, too).
And my origami owl business is keeping me hopping, too. Add in holiday orders, and I am really stressed to the max. The extra money is wonderful, though, because it is all going to the midwives we would not otherwise be able to afford.
So that's me right now.
Sounds like you're sticking to your mama gut which is good. :) Aiden is definitely not picking up on new words daily. I'll catch a few new words one week and then nothing for a week or two. Even then we usually don't pick up that he's got a new word till it's really obvious. lol. He's not a clear talker, but I have no ear concerns for him. I think he hears just fine, just doesn't care to waste the effort to pronounce things better.
