Re: May 2011 Mamas Chat

Hi everyone!

Rachel - I was reading about how Toby is small and a picky eater. I think that it's hard to really judge where children are at until they're at least 18m-2Y. And even then they're all their own being.

For example, Max was an early mover. Early roller, crawler, scooter, etc. Then he pulled up and cruised. And kept cruising. And it wasn't until 14-15m that he started trying steps. A little girl in one of his baby classes walked before 12m.

On the other side of that, Max has maybe 3 words. Mama, Dada, and Lola (the dog.) He says arf and chirp but that's about it. He consistently uses the word "Da!" for everything and anything.

Sizewise, I think if they're the same as they've always been, that's just who they are. Max has always been long and lean. Still is at about 10% weight, 90% height. My husband's cousin has two babies - the first was like Max, long and lean. Her second is a huge chunk. They are opposites.

That's all I really have to add. Have you considered any food sensitivities being the cause of low weight? We just switched to a mostly vegan diet and put Max on hemp milk. I'm curious if it will affect him at all. Like you I walk the line between worried and letting it go when it comes to food stuff. I try and just figure he'll eat what he wants when he's hungry. I have found that he enjoys food with flavor a lot more than "kid" foods. Although today he put away a ton at lunch. You can always cook his food with more oil, etc!

Good to hear from you!

Hey! How are you?? I was thinking about us all again, wondering what everyone is doing and who has had more babies in the last two years None for us, but we are thinking about trying again when Toby is close to 3!

Hi Rachel!
I love your new avi picture. So cute -- your boys are getting so big! We don't have anymore babies and I don't know if we will, although I wouldn't totally rule it out. DD is so much fun these days. She's talking a lot! And she is DEFINITELY a 2yo. But all is well! Maybe we can revive the chat a little! So nice hearing from you! Wonder if anyone else is ever around anymore...

Oh my gosh, I know what you mean about being 2 Toby has started getting sassy and he has sentences upon sentences that he throws out at us! It doesn't help that he sees Quinn at his 3.5 year old stage and tries to do it all like brother!

Thanks for the avi nod I'm always mobile and can't always see my pic, I had to think about which one it was! LOL

I'd love to chat again, I miss having a crew to discuss everything with. Definitely struggling more with my oldest than T right now. I really hope he starts to mellow when 4 arrives in August....is. there some magic switch?! I love him like crazy though
