We're a terribly slack bunch. DD was born on March 4th. She just had her 9-month well-baby visit (although she's only kind of well, she has two ear infections, and the antibiotic is giving her diarrhea which is giving her diaper rash, arrgh) and weighs 19 lbs 8 oz, or 2 oz less than her 15-month old cousin. She can stand up by herself but is not yet quite walking, she eats all sorts of solids and also nurses like a fiend, and night before last she slept more than 3 hours at a stretch twice. Her greatest recent accomplishment is starting to actually stack up one of her sets of stacking cups (the easiest one, and she can't do it as intended, but she sometimes gets a smaller cup on top of a bigger one in some orientation).
my little boy isnt even crawling yet, im a bit worried because ds1 was crawling at 7 months. he's a very happy little boy though and says mama , dada and culcul - we call him cully but his names michael.
he had his 9 month check a few weeks ago and failed his hearing test but re-took it a week later and passed fine, i think it was because he had an ear infection at the time.
we took him and ds1 to the curry house with us today and he loved it. you should see his little face when he sees the christmas lights - i am so looking forward to his first christmas
It's so easy to focus on what they don't do, isn't it? DD crawled at 6 months, but I'm a bit worried because she has no words yet! She says "mamamamama" and "dadiddledada" all the time but doesn't mean anything by it, it's just random.
ds was born on 6th March - but I've decamped to the April babies thread as there was more going on. Come and join us - ds seems v. advanced cos he's really 3 or 4 weeks older than the others!
He's crawling, cruising and yesterday started walking using his push along thingy.
Bit hit or miss with food - some days woofs it others picks and then refuses - but hey ho - can't have everything.
DD would have been eating steak at 4 months, but we pried the bit she grabbed out of her fingers before it got into her mouth...
And she'd sure send texts if I let her, but I don't think Daddy would understand them as she wants to chew on the phone, liable to produce odd words.
People tell me what great sleepers their babies are (because of their careful schedules and/or by the book sleep training ie they have more will power than I do!) and how many words they have. Or maybe that's just what I hear them telling me because I'm paranoid about it?
I'm also convinced that everybody else feeds their baby lovingly prepared fresh food. I did actually lovingly prepare courgette for her yesterday, but what she actually ate was mostly store-bought turkey meatballs.
DS was born on March 8th. Probably weighs about 21 lbs. He's sitting, commando crawling and babbling but i've met dismal failure so far with finger food and introducing cups. And lots of jars here - DS never seems that keen on my cooking - possibly a bit of a vicious circle here - really should have started off weaning with homecooked food
don't think it's unheard of for babies to virtually skip crawling, and either bumshuffle or go straight to standing
hello, how were your christmasses? my ds got board with opening pressies so my elder son opened them for him!! he loved his christmas dinner though, esspecially the roast potatoes. he's getting really good at finger foods and can drink out of a beaker. Still not crawling though, hes getting there.... really slowly
been a long time since I checked out the march thread - good to see you guys are still around.
ds2 is cute cute cute and love him to bits. he's got a right little temper on him though and woe betide his brother if he tries to nick his toys. or if I confiscate the mobile phone.
he's eating everything he can get his grubby hands on and pretty much feeds himself these days as the tantrums have put me off the spoon feeding thing unless he is totally distracted by something else at the time.
crawls at great speed and loves to crawl towards forbidden things, stopping once in a while just to check I am chasing him then falls around in hysterics when he is stopped at the last second from destroying the video, putting his hands down the loo etc
he can race around pushing one of those baby walker things but no signs of walking independently yet
waves bye bye
oh the list of adorable things he can do could go on forever!! forgive me please - smitten mummy!
has anyone started planning the bday bash yet?
hi is this thread still active? my dd was born 17th march st. patricks day! shes walking but not really saying any words apart from daddy of course!! trying not to get paranoid about other babies who can say words! as for food she flings most of it at me!
