Wow, rebeccaxxx, the time sure flies!
I'm so glad you're enjoying this time with A; it was definitely one of my favorite ages with tiny wu.

Oh thank you scandina, I love reading about your adventures with your family. This forum definitely played a key part in my decision to start a family.

in keeping with the "my baby is growing up and i cant handle it" i cant believe how ginormous my wee sprite is. i mean she's still tiny but for her she's getting huge. every time i look at her im like "when did she get so damn tall?" we measured her up against her growth board and she has grown a full INCH since her birthday, so in less than 4 months.
of course she hasnt gained any weight really. she's still 22 lbs and im pretty sure will be there forever (actually she weighs 22.8 now! woo almost 23!)
she is all scrawny limbs. so basically she is the toddler version of what my husband is now (i guess he didnt actually get tall til high school though).
when we go out a lot of random people tell us she is a perfect split between the two of us. i think she is starting to look more like me but she is definitely built like my husband.

this picture is from tonight. she isnt even sitting in a booster! when did she get so big?!?!??!
Image

i had a hard time finding a picture of me and her where we're not making silly faces
Image

although i would not call her independent by any means she is less dependent on me for certain things now (does that even make sense?).
im going away next weekend and im not really panicking about it all that much like i was at the beginning of the summer where i was having a heart attack every time i even thought about it. ive told her a few times im going to be gone for a few days and she seems unfazed by it.

she still LOVES dinosaurs more than anything and knows basically everything about them.
things that dont interest her she has no time for so she doesnt really know any numbers as far as i can tell and knows just a couple letters. i think she can count to 10 fine but im not 100% sure because if you ask her to she will probably just say no. however then she will use words like disintegrate and oscillate correctly. she's a strange one.

she still fights me on everything under the sun and basically by the end of everyday im mentally exhausted but 3 has been better than 2 since 2 was just horrible.
she still loves books and will sit and "read" to herself for hours on end (which is basically she memorizes the books and then recites them back, typically pretty accurately but sometimes things get added in)

she starts preschool in about 3 weeks and i am simultaneously excited and terrified about it.

Every time you post about her or share photos it seems like she's made huge leaps.

LP, that's SO awesome!!! I hope Vax progresses like that soon -- a few successes on the potty and sleeping on his own would be fantastic.

I can't see the pics you posted, though. :/

it's crazy. she was always the world's worst sleeper. woke constantly. i couldnt move in the bed or she would wake up. she nursed constantly. she would wake up and just scream. oh my god she was horrible. even now she is still hard to get to sleep but seems to stay asleep once she falls asleep for a good amount of time. usually she crawls into our bed at some point in the night but she immediately falls asleep again. to think where we came from it's insane that we got here. SO THERE IS HOPE for anyone!!! you will get there i swear!

i dont know why people cant see the pics :-( im so frustrated with google pics. it used to be so easy to share pocs from there now half the time i cant see them and apparently now that i can see them other people cant. grrrr

I could see them the other day - not any more! Strange.

Every time you post on Instagram I'm shocked at how big she is, LP!

When you try does it give you an error message? They have to be on the internet somewhere (can't upload to PPK) and there's a size limit so make sure it's not too big.

yeah you need to host them somewhere else. i was using google photos and for some reason that seems to not work anymore so i dint have a good suggestion.

then i was right clicking on the pic and doing "save image address" and then hitting the "img" button on this ppk page and pasting the URL in there.

in theory that should work. why google photos isnt working i dont know.

where do people host their pics?

is photobucket still like a thing?

I tried using imgur and made the photo really small and it still gave me a hey this photo is too large error message. The photo was definitely smaller than the size limit it mentioned in the error message. So I don't know. Maybe the board just doesn't like baby lobster photos.

the other thing i remembered, that i have been doing with food in the monthly food challenges, is you can put a link to instragram. it doesnt embed the picture in the thread (or maybe you can do that i never tried) but i just use the URL button and people can click on that.

My baby legitimately CRAWLED this evening! So excited. And scared. (We have been so lax at baby proofing anything, other than I put some things in open outlets.) He's been working so hard at it for weeks and tonight it all just clicked and I know in about 3 more days he's just going to be cruising sooo fast.

I'm such a helicopter parent that I don't think any baby-proofing I did mattered, but it is nice to have one baby-proofed room where I don't have to say "no" constantly.

Ha, I have no illusions that we're going to somehow baby proof the whole house. some things, like putting those latches on cupboards and stuff, I'm sure will be some help. But mostly now, overnight, we have no safe place to set him down for a few minutes! We have a padded baby area set up on the floor in a more open area of the living room, that is also in view of the stove, so up til now that was ok so leave him sitting or lying down with some toys for a few minutes while cooking or sitting on the couch, but now we need to get some baby gates to block of a section of the living room, or one of those portable baby jails, or something.

Hey, I have a crawler now too! mini wu has been army crawling on his tummy since about 5 months (no rest for the weary around here) and just this week started getting up on his knees and crawling properly! And pulling himself up to standing!

He turned 6 months old on August 20th and I really can't believe he's been part of our family for half a year already!

Oh my goodness! So adorable. We suck at babyproofing. I too long for a room that doesn't involve me saying no. We are gradually getting there.
