Catching Up

Hi...sorry I was MIA for so long. I've been swamp with work (you would think that since I am joining the unemployment line in the next couple of months that I would just be cruising and kicking back--well not in this case). Things are going good. I met my new OB last Friday and she seems nice. It is a very small practice-only 2 doctors. I am not used to this-but maybe it is a good thing. I guess we just have to wait and see. The baby is doing well and measuring right on track. I still have 3 sacs, but they are so small compared to the baby so I am feeling so much better--I think I can say that they are almost a non issue. I don't have to go every 2 weeks anymore, my next appointment is not until the 22nd of May. I still haven't really told people, I have no idea what I am waiting for. Of course, people around here know since you really can't hide it anymore(and we really don't know anyone out here), but our close friends and family outside of CT, which most of them are, have no idea. S said, it is easy to hide when no one can see you!!!

On the B front, he is doing perfect. We went to his 15 month appointment a couple of weeks ago and he weighs 23.6 pds and 32 1/2 inches long!! He is slim and skinny--okay, well he really doesn't look that skinny! The last couple of weeks he's been very vocal and just a chatter box. Granted we don't understand anything he is saying, but it is nice to hear him vocalize himself. He also dropped his morning nap, but now we need to work on getting his afternoon nap in a more normal time. He goes down around 12:30 and I am hoping eventually that will be pushed to around 1 or 1:30. It such a difference now that he only takes 1 nap...I feel like we have this chunk in the morning where we can do stuff because we don't have to worry about the morning nap!

There is one thing that B started doing that worries me a little. Lately, he's been into humping. Yes you heard me right ladies, humping!!! I was so beside myself the first time I saw it. There are 2 things that he "enjoys" humping, his monkey blanket and his sippy cup!!!! I have no idea what to do. If he does it in front of us, we take the item away-usually his sippy cup-and we say that this is a no, no. But I am pretty sure he lays in his crib and humps the monkey to no end!!! Have you guys heard of anything like this? I it and found out that this is normal, mostly it starts at 2 and girls are more likely to do it than boys!!! I am too embarrass to ask our doctor, but I think I will have too, but we are not going to see her until July!!! I know this is a normal thing, and everything I read said this is normal--but I guess I just didn't expect it from an almost 16th month old boy!!! I get pictures in my head that he will be this or something--I know I am overreacting, but this really worries me.

On another topic, we were supposed to take a family vacation to Ma.zat.lan this May but since S is so busy with work and they have a major project that keeps getting pushed back, we had to cancel our trip. Needless to say I was very upset, angry, etc. If I wasn't P, it won't be a big deal since we can just re-schedule to another time, but with the P we are kind of in a time line. To make a long story short, we had to pick another destination and start from scratch. We can't go to Ma.zat.lan since we are only going for 6 days vs. our original 8 days and the flight alone takes almost a full day. We need a destination that is a direct flight and a short flight-around 4 hours. So we decided to go to Can.cun. I am not too happy about this, but it is better than not going on vacation at all. The resort is beautiful so that is a plus, but I know that the surrounding area caters to younger crowd. Oh well, as long as we stay in the resort we should have a good time.

Well, this is all for now ladies...sorry for the long post!

Hee hee...BG isn't into humping (yet?) but she has definitely shown more interest in messing with herself when we change her diaper. I say as long as it's just the monkey, let him hump away! (But I agree that humping the sippy is not so appropriate. :) )

Sorry about your vaca getting canceled. I bet Cancun will still be nice. You're not going at peak spring break time, so it's not like you'll be surrounded by kids with beer bongs.

I've been wondering about you! And just to make you feel better, I have a humper too! Hailey has started humping her blanket in her crib! She hasn't done the sippy cup yet (owww!) but she seems to do it more as a soothing technique. From everything I've read/heard - completely normal! Strange, but normal. 8-)

Anyway, glad to hear the P is going so well and normal. Although it does stink about the vacay being changed. I'm just jealous that you are going away!!

So glad to hear things are going well ...

Hi Momo! So glad to hear that the 3 sacs are so small now. That is very good news. The short, direct flight and nice weather will do you a world of good. I hope B loves it there!

Yes I have a humper. I always feel so bad for the stuffed animal that has to sleep with him!!! he doesn't do it as often anymore (or at least I don't see it that often), I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thingg! He's 25 mos old btw.
