Re: August 2011 - October chat

So there's other babies around here that aren't walking huh?

I put the call into the doctor for the referral to EI. I figured, he'll probably be walking before the appt, but if not, then maybe we should have him looked at. lol

Levi will stand up if you stand him up in the middle of the room, and he REALLY looks like he wants to walk to you, but he wont. he's gotten good at lapping the furniture.

I was going to get pictures done of him tomorrow, but then remembered that I'll have jake with me this week, so I should probably cancel.. or just not show up. lol depends on if I remember to do it or not. My phone is dead right now. We'll see. lol it's walmart, so it's not like I'm blowing off a actual person or anything.

I'll leave you with a picture today. this is my messy boy, Jake brought him a cracker when he should of been taking a nap. Thanks jake.

I can't either. How would a reversal for that not cause MORE pain kwim? Can e get an relief from meds? Not that he'd want to live on them.... I feel so bad for him and he's not even my hubby!

Hey everyone! I've been trying to keep up, but I have been so busy planning dd's wedding (which went off without a hitch this past weekend). I never got around to posting dgs' 1st b-day pics, and I may never, but I DID want to post this one of him dressed for his Aunt's wedding.



Here's one of my girls pre-wedding (dgs' mom is the pregnant one in the pic):


Here is one of dd and me pre-wedding:


And my handsome son walking his bridesmaid sister down the aisle:


I'll try to share some of the professional pics when they come in!

Is anyone else dealing with tantrums yet? Harper hs started throwing herself on the floor and screaming in a fit. It only lasts a minute but it is really bothering me. It's been a while since I've dealt with toddler tantrums (ds2 started at 16 months and he is still at it but ds3 didn't really go through this). As of now I am doing a mix of walking away and redirecting and it's not improving. Many times she fights me redirecting her.

I am really undecided at how I want to deal with them. She throws them if I have to move her, take something, if someone won't give her what they have and she wants (their cup of water/blankie, etc), if were out and she wants down or tries to walk off and I bring her back. Part of me wants to scoop her up and just redirect but part of me wants to walk away from her and remove my attention. I'm stumped about what the best approach is for a 14.5 month old! Why am I forgetting this??! Obviously I want her to realize tantrums don't get her way but also to realize I can help her communicate better and I understand.

Here is my underlying issue.....I am terrified that I dealt with ds2 wrong at this stage and somehow caused the issues he struggles with. I know that is absurd but I have major guilt over withholding affection/attention because I fear separation. (We used removal from the situation and forced timeouts and it was MISERABLE for everyone, we just didn't know other ways then). I also fear having another child on the spectrum with odd and that is always in the back of my head.

So?? Mom Squad... Wwyd?? I'm desperate to get past these fits and encourage positive attitudes and behavior.

How old was your son when you started doing timeouts?

Not sure how much Harper will understand atm but she seems to me that she is pretty intelligent. I gather that from your posts but still not sure what she can grasp. I think re-directing is a great place to start. With Peyton--she sometimes yells at us--yes yells at us. Its insane--but I know she doesn't quite understand but I tell her "we don't do that" I sometimes say no but I try not to say that too much bc them I will have a 1 yr old telling everyone no, she already tells the dogs to "go lay down."

Blu use to have the craziest of tantrums--like afraid he was going to hurt himself tantrums. We would ignore him, leave the situaution, and when he got to the point of understanding privledges like toys were taken away. As cruel as it sounds the toy taken away works. But I do not suggest it that young.

I would not worry to much about her being on the spectrum. Is she showing other signs or just the tantrums. Blu is not on the spectrum but he does have behaviors of someone who is on the spectrum--I hope that makes sense. I know this bc I researched it bc DH nephews are on spectrum and Blu had speach issues early. But some things he has issues with is he is obsessed with string (it is the craziest weirdest thing but apparently my father has it too and I find string everywhere) he can not move onto something else unless it is completeled or now if he "wins." There are others but I can not remember. My point is they could show signs of things and not actually be on the spectrum.

How old is the son that is on it and where on the spectrum do they say he is. I ask bc of my nephews. Apparently, before I moved to NY they were really far on the spectrum and distant. But they changed diet and saw specialist, are on a vitamen regiment and you would have no idea the were even on the spectrum.

Maybe she is just that crazy girl you always hoped for

Dominic is 7 and his clinical diagnosis is PDD-NOS, mild autism spectrum disorder, and ODD. He is high functioning and main streams in school. But you would never know that when he gets home and has to blow off all the steam he has held in all day at school. When we started short timeouts he was 19 months. It was more removing him from the situation than 'sit here, your in trouble' kwim?

I don't worry about Harper being in the spectrum, I worry that I did something to cause it in Dominic and that Ill do it again. Stupid, I know. But that's my completely irrational fear.

She says a few words but understands far more. She says no constantly. Anytime you ask her anything she shakes her head and says 'Noooo'. She is into absolutely everything. I can't get anything done because if I'm not interacting with her she is tearing things up or climbing furniture.if I take her off the couch (after telling her sit/climb down, which she knows how to do) she arches her back and screams on the floor. It's crazy! She is so young!
