How is everyone doing?!? What's new with you? Give us an update when you can!
Zoe is 7 weeks. She is a very happy baby that smiles often. I am starting to get into a routine and regularly leaving the house with them both. I recently took over the babywearing group for this area that was dying. Have our first meeting set up for next month and hope to expand from there! Lots and lots of work for me to prepare for this since I haven't done an actual BWing meeting before.
Ms Chub Chub yesterday:
She is just precious and I love your new siggy picture, too! Keep us posted on how the babywearing group is going!
Btw, Zoe is 12 lbs already at 7 weeks!!! YIKES.
12 lbs...wow! She looks so sweet! Vivi has that same outfit. Good luck w/your first meeting! I'm sure you'll do great! Will you bring the kids with?
We're good. Vivi keeps me on my toes...she is the Queen, as dh calls her. LOL! She's a pretty needy little lady. She's starting to use some signs, and just popped 3 teeth with 1 more starting to come through now. Hopefully once that's through she'll be a little bit easier to deal with. She's finally STTN for the most part, yay! Miles is good. He is still obsessed with his Thomas trains. I think he's going to be the 30 year old man you see at the train shows with his train set-up.
Yes, I will bring the kids for demos....and DH so I don't have to worry about them when they're not up.
The Queen! Well sounds like she'll keep life interesting.
Ashley - that is great that Vivi is STTN for the most part! Hmmm...I wonder if Miles and Michael will travel together for those shows?
What an adorable picture of Zoe!
Love reading the updates!
My boys are doing great. I just found out that I will be registering J for kinder in 2 weeks! I am not ready for that! I am now in process of researching after school care for him (how I wish I could be a SAHM!). J is doing great. He is beyond ready academically for kinder. T is doing great. We have his follow up ENT appt next week where we will get a referral for another audiological eval. I'm pretty convinced the tubes have helped as he is now working hard to add those missing sounds (especially the ending sounds). He is now participating in a new season of pee wee sports and is loving it!
Mommy to 2 amazing little boys!
Angel babies 6/9/07 & 11/16/07
Cali - Sounds like the boys are doing awesome! Can't believe it is time for J to start K! Let us know how T's follow up goes! How are things with you? How is work going?
It sounds like everyone is doing so well.
Jackie- Zoe is adorable!
Ashley - Yay for getting sleep! Welcome back to the land of the living. Isaiah was into trains at the same age. I think it is a little boy thing. He is not as into them anymore. He is almost a tween, so he is loves some little boy things like Super Heroes, Star Wars, and Legos. Ninjago is big for him right now, as is the video game Skylanders. Some of the other things like dinosaurs, Hot Wheels, and trains are waning. He still thinks they are cool, but he prefers the other stuff. I am not looking forward to the days where all of these things become too "babyish" for his interests.
Cali- K already!! I remember when Isaiah started K. What a great year that was for him. He still loves his K teacher. She tells parents that her job is the make sure kids have a positive experience with school, and she is excellent at it. Her goal is for kids to love her and to love coming to school. That is what makes a great K teacher.
As for our clan, we are still working on potty training. Bah! I have no buy-in with the girls. We tried underwear with Keira, but it was miserable for her. She started refusing to even go near the potty and would sit in the wet underwear. So, we backed off. Potty training cannot be a negative experience and she cannot feel like a failure. We never made a big deal out of wet or dirty underwear. I just think daycare was not consistent enough, and she struggled with it there. Sarafina wants nothing to do with underwear. It is super frustrating. They are too smart for their own good. They know that transitioning away from diapers means more work for them. Stickers and M&Ms don't work. I have not found their "currency" yet. We throw potty parties too. It just doesn't reinforce them enough. So, I am being patient. No pressure right now. You cannot potty train if they refuse to sit on the potty. I am debating letting them decorate their potties with tons of stickers. HA!
Isaiah is doing well. The dynamic with the boys at his school keeps getting better since the boys who have the most trouble getting along with everyone keep leaving. One boy, who had some definite difficulties, left before Christmas. Isaiah has actually been coping with school stress even better since that time. He seems more relaxed. Another parent said the same about her daughter. I feel for the parent and for that boy though. What a rough road they are going to travel.
