Just curious. It isn't awful or serious but we seem to entered the "No" phase. For a while now Ceridwen would say no but not really understand it but now she uses it with great force and enjoys being contrary.

Has anyone else begun the wonders of "NO"?

The other day I went to her in her crib to get her because she was awake and she would not stand up for me. So I was like "fine I'll go pick out your clothes than." and she jumped up and yelled "NO!" at me. I came back to pick her up and she sat down quickly and shaked her head while saying "No". So I turned around and went back to the dresser and she junped up again and yelled "NO!" so I lunged in real quick and scooped her up as she was trying to sit back down. The whole day went this way. Up to and including her refussal to put her pants back on after using the potty. I guess I should just be glad she isn't refusing to use the potty. Today went much better though because I've asked her opinion on just about everything before doing it. It seems to have helped. *lol* I guess my little girl is just developing her own sense of style and independence.

Tequila recently FINALLY went to a doctor's appointment. We were having insurance issues before but now that's all straightened out. Needless to say, she was a bit late for her 12 month shots. Last week she got 4 shots and her blood drawn. I wish I had told them to wait for some of them. Now she's struggling with a fever and a swollen red bump where she got the injection. I've had her on a generic childrens tylenol which brought down her 102 temp to 100 but she threw up at night. I hope she feels better today.
Shes 23 pounds and I think they said 28 inches or so? The doctor said she was a bit short - barely making the growth curve on the chart. I'm glad that she got her weight taken though. I was getting tired of people telling me shes fat! Now I get to tell them "well her doctor says shes NORMAL! Thats how she's SUPPOSED TO LOOK!"
She doesn't speak much. The most she says is mama OCCASIONALLY - but she's done that since she was 3 months old so I doubt she knows what it means. Maybe its was instinctive. And she says oww when she falls or trips.

now for picsCollapse )

Hi guys, been a while. But I thought I would drop in a couple of pictures.

I know most of you are in the US, and I know the big thing is to put you little ones in baseball/football team colours. Of course here in the UK we don't have that, and a lot of the local football (soccer) stuff for kids is just... well tacky. But on the other hand, my husband's family is particularly proud of their Irish heritage, and I have some Irish (though more Welsh) blood. So when we saw this all in one... well it just had to be done. So here is Patrick, wearing his colours.

wearing the green and orangeCollapse )

Teb learned how to kick a soccer ball today. Happy dance also included. :)

Has anyone enrolled or thought about enrolling their little ones in Infant Self Rescue classes? Here is the website for anyone interested in looking them up. www.infantswim.com

We started Teb in ISR classes yesterday. He's had two classes now and he's doing great. The instructor says he's taking all of her cues very well and that once she teaches him the self rescue techniques she should be able to teach him to swim as well.

Our pediatrician gave us the information for ISR classes when he was a newborn. I feel really good about this. I would love for my little water baby to be able to save himself and learn to swim like a fish at an early age.
This post is brought to you by one proud mum, and one over the moon father that his son learned to walk on Father's Day. he's got a sense of occasion alright.

Happy Father's day to all our dads out there!

Well this is what the title says really. I am just generally in a proud mood and want to write it all down to look back on later.

This weekend we got my boy new wheels. His first trike! I wasn't planning on doing it so soon, but to be honest I saw the exact right one, down from £60 to £37, while I was out shopping. It was a case of knowing I would never see that one at that price again, so phoned hubby (since these days he supports all three of us) asked his opinion and into the trolley it went. but he thinks its fab.

Is anyone else having trouble encouraging their little one to walk?

Connor made 15 months on the 3rd and I keep noticing children his age or younger walking. I'm not concerned really I mean he crawls wonderfully and he stands and walks holding onto things fine he just wont let go and take a step at all :/ Even if he's REALLY excited he'll run along the table holding on then fling himself to the floor and crawl to what he wants. (this sometimes freaks me out because there's no carpet in our home) Thanks moms!
