@autumnleaves: I caught my son gripping the edge of the counter top, and climbing the side of the cabinet with his bare toes to get onto the counter. I don't think it's possible to toddler proof at this time... maybe just lock everything up until hes 10...

@JennyLayneAZ: DD turned 2 on Tuesday, and I swear the 2 year sleep regression started that very night! Her bed time has been 7pm forever, but last night I tried 8 and it went a lot better. Fingers crossed!
Also, her tantrums have really increased in frequency and intensity. Just learning what behaviors to ignore and what behaviors to address.
Teeth brushing is very hit or miss for us as well. Half the time I have to hold her down and hold her head, the other half she will open wide for me.
We just made a cake for her birthday and that's it. I am finishing up my semester, and can't even think about trying to have a party. I think in mid-May we will have a picnic with family at the park as a birthday/summer is here celebration.

@rockinghorse: hope the sleep regression is getting better for you!
Oh man you guys, LO and I are sick again I'm so over this cold and flu season, this is ridiculous. LO has another ear infection, less than a week after finishing meds for an ear infection in the same ear. But she saw her Dr on the last day of antibiotics and he said everything looked good, so, it has to be a new infection, right? I had to take her into Urgent Care for this one because the fever started on Sunday, the only day her dr isn't open. Definitely will be taking her to see her ped after these antibiotics are done, so that they are aware of this and also just to be sure its gone...
In other news, LO has started kicking and hitting. so that's fun

@JennyLayneAZ: aww man back to back ear infections are the worse. What did Urgent care give her? I loved it whenever they gave LO the shots.
One of LO’s tubes fell out. We don’t go back to the ENT for almost another two months and I’m crossing my fingers he stays healthy until then.
@Mrs. Lemon-Lime: to you that lo stays ear infection free! They gave her Cefdinir this time. She's having a lot of diahrea still

@JennyLayneAZ: I hope your little one feels better soon! We went to the ER on Saturday night because DS2 had 2 febrile seizures again and 103.6 temp- we wanted to figure out what was causing the fever. ER doc said it was an ear infection but on Monday our ped said the ears looked good (though the tubes are already out) and he has a throat infection. He had a fever from Saturday to Wednesday- not all day but at some point each day it would be 102. Not a fun week but finally he is feeling better.
@autumnleaves: the seizures must be terrifying! I'm sorry you guys have had to go through that. I hope your LO is still doing well
@JennyLayneAZ: My son gets Cefdinir for his ear infections because his amoxicillian allergy. He always gets a little bit of diarrhea with it. I usually make sure he gets oatmeal, bananas, mashed potatoes, rice, etc when he's on it to help with that. Then when he's done with the course I get him yogurt pouches with probiotics to help straighten everything out.
@Sams Mom: yeah, my toddler is so so so picky the only thing on your list she'll eat is bananas. She gags on oatmeal, doesn't like rice and is going about 6 months if no mashed potatoes. But, were on day 10, so just one last dose tonight and we're done, thankfully. She does currently eat yogurt so she'll be having that this week.
Well ladies, I've gone and done it. Just got a BFP! Here's to another April baby!
@rockinghorse: congratulations!!! 🍾
@Mrs. Lemon-Lime: @JennyLayneAZ: thanks guys! I can't believe we think we can handle 2 kids!
I'm joining the April 19 board, but there isn't much action. I'll miss having an active group!
@rockinghorse: You'll do great with 2 I'm jealous LOL Hopefully the 4/19 board will pick up for you as the month goes on. I'm sad about the slowness of this entire website honestly. I've been reading babycenter a lot lately, but the boards move too fast over there and usually whatever I felt the need to say has been said a billion times already. I miss the "medium" ness of the the size Hellobee used to be. Anyway, good luck with baby #2!
@JennyLayneAZ: I completely agree!
@rockinghorse: this is very exciting one of our April babies is getting promoted to big sibling status! I bet once you have two you won’t even remember what it’s like to have one. A three year age gap is pretty darn perfect!!
One of LO’s daycare friends has a little baby brother and the two boys look so much alike. I want pointing out B’s baby brother and LO got sad and said he he wanted a brother too. Yeah, no more discussing little people family relationships.
@JennyLayneAZ: man, I miss the heyday of HB.

@rockinghorse: congratulations!! No more for me, but I have to tell you that I saw your post on the April 19 board and if your lo is born on his or her due date they will be exactly the same birthdays and age difference of my 2 girls. 4/24/13 and 4/18/16. The 3 year age gap has been pretty perfect. Congrats again and I hope you have a wonderful and healthy pregnancy!
@MrsRoo: omg! What are the chances?!? And I'm glad the age difference works. I sometimes worry that we waited too long because I feel like DD would love a sibling. But a newborn with a 3 year old seems a lot more doable than a newborn with a 2 year old
@rockinghorse: right? I had to login and post because those dates are just such a coincidence. I initially wanted a 2 year gap, but I haven’t longed for that since I saw how great of a big sister DD has been and how helpful that extra year of maturity was. She took a big sister class at the hospital and did great, she was a perfect age for it. Having her potty trained and a little more independent when the baby came along was awesome, I don’t see how I could have done it with a 2 year old.
