Chicken is still worrying me with his speech. I know, I know, he's a BOY and boy's are traditionally slower at learning to speak, especially since he's the middle child and after a girl. Even though he's met his milestones, I still worry. Punky was putting words together by 12 or 14 months. He's 18 months and can barely say 20 words. I try not to compare them. I KNOW Chicken comprehends a lot of things. He can point to almost anything I ask him about, follows directions well and is healthy and active. It's just how long it's taken him to get to the few words he does know. Maybe I should start sitting down with him more and teaching him. Never too early to begin homeschooling.
Cupcake is having tummy troubles, although I think the formula switch we made is doing wonders. I took her to the pediatrician yesterday just to talk with the doc about it all and she weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs 13 oz. I can't believe she's already gained almost three pounds since birth! She still doesn't look fat to me although I can see a few little creases where rolls will be, she just looks ridiculously long. She's got long skinny legs and arms. Her cheeks make up the most of her weight I do believe. Anyway, we switched her formula to a lactose-free (sensitive) formula - not soy - and I have barely known she was in the house. She had one little crying spell last night around midnight but put herself back to sleep after about 5 minutes (and I think that's because we were a couple of hours off on her reflux medicine). She even slept a 5 hour stretch and I was able to hold her off all night without eating (with her pacifier.) I do think she'll be sleeping through the night in another few weeks. I can tell her sleep is getting straightened out because at precisely 7 at night she goes into a deeper sleep and doesn't really wake up again until sometime in the middle of the night. I'm amazed at how well she's doing! Let's just hope the tummy troubles are straightened out with this new formula!
Hope everyone is doing well. I think this week on weight watchers has been a bust after the holiday and such. Plus I still haven't gotten any exercise in. I know now that's definitely the difference.
