So Much To Say May 10, 2011

Filed under: Baby G — arminta @ 7:34 pm

Right, so I have three things to talk about (yes, after all that silent time I’m suddenly interesting). There are updates of the mundane nature (who’s standing, who’s crawling and who’s decided not to poop for two days… hint hint none of them are me), of the pissed-at-national-magazines nature and of the MIL Hell nature. So, there will be three posts, because obviously so not related. This is the mundane post.

This has been a mega week for development! The boy now pulls up to a stand and stands. Like on his own. For like 5-10 seconds. Or, he’ll hold on, for minutes. Several of them! AAAHHH!!! Dear toddler person possessing my infants body: slow down!!!! OK, yes, it’s awesome he can do this at 8.5 months, but also, he’s ONLY 8.5 months.

Another development of the week, we went from army crawling to mixed proper-belly-off-the-floor crawling and occasional army crawling. Leaning more toward the proper crawling. He’s mobile. Real life, honest, no shit mobile! Good thing we been a child proofing πŸ™‚

OK, now a question… how long do I wait before worrying about no poo? He last poo’d on Sunday. He still nurses and sometimes has a little water and eats his solids. On Sunday he was sick and had 4 movements, but he hasn’t had one since. So, when do I get worried? Should I bust out the prunes? Are you tired of hearing about poop, yet?

The most beautiful sound in thee world:

    That is the most awesome sound ever! πŸ™‚ If by tonight (Wenesday) he still hasnt gone I’d totally bust out some prunes. But a word of assvice from someone whos been in a poop stand off before. DO NOT give him more then like 2 tablespoons… and DO NOT attempt to leave the house. Bad Bad things will happen. πŸ˜‰

    So cool! and scary… we have a hint of the toddlerness over here to but I want to squish it all back down. Its too soon!!!

    Go G! πŸ™‚ Love the laughing – so cute. No clue about the poo. If it was regarding an adult I’d say give it a day or so more, but really, no clue. I, uh, hope he poos for you soon!

    Hoping that the poo issue has been resolved by now. Ginny does that from time to time… will have a poo-y day, followed by a couple of poo-less days.

    Love the laughs… I can’t wait for Ginny to laugh like that.

    We’re planning on starting the baby-proofing in a few weeks. Want to be ready just in case.
