"He likes it when we give him utensils, but he definitely doesn't use them correctly. Super messy, never spoon to mouth; always spoon to floor. He will however try to use a fork, but he prefers our regular silverware forks. He…"
"I haven't noticed this behavior from him. Although, we always clap or Hooray when he does things, like put the basketball through the basketball hoop; or put trash in the trashcan; or puts his cup on the table instead of the floor. …"
"He never took to pacifiers really, buuuuuut, he still takes a bottle from time to time. Usually when he's really fussy and is going down for a nap, or if he doesn't feel well. I'm not sure how to break him of this. …"
"Weirdly, I don't have this problem. I bought a bunch of socks from amazon.com that go to about the middle of his calf so even if they start to slide off, they never actually come all the way off. I love those socks!"
"Yes. After I posted this, I was talking to a few other people and they said they've either dealt with this first hand or knew someone who had. So it seems to be quite common among little guys this age. I'll just keep working with him on…"
"My little guy loves his stackable buckets!!! we build em' high and he knocks em' down! he loves it!! The only con to this game is now he knocks things down all the time, like other kids who are stacking things at his daycare, or when…"
"Declan is a very serious child, so when he's being silly, you really have to appreciate it! I love when he plays peek-a-boo, but only covers part of his face. I love when he dances, and man does he love to dance!! I wish he were more silly as…"
"We bought him several things. He's really into things that he can interact with and the noisier the better. I'm excited for this year because he's a little older and I think will respond more than last year when he was…"
"HA! so funny this is the question this time around. My hubby and I have been talking and talking about getting our son's hair cut for the first time because it's longer than we like, and people keep mistaking him for a girl. We…"
"My son started walking about a week after he turned 1. He's an expert walker at this point, and he's tried running a couple of times, but usually falls. The funny thing is, when he first wakes up in the morning, it's like…"
"highs: I really enjoyed watching the interaction between the baby and his big brother; this baby is so different from his brother and I liked learning about their similarities and their differences; recently, he has been trying to learn to walk…"
"His first name is just because my husband and I both agreed and liked it - it was an easy decision. His middle name however, is my maiden name, which also happens to be my maternal grandfather's last name and ends with me. My grandfather died…"
"I've only been asked once by a stranger to hold the baby and I let her hold him - we were at my oldest son's basketball game and she was one of the other kids grandparents. I didn't know her name and we had never spoken…"
"It didn't go the way I thought it would. He only allowed me to take turns with him a couple of times before he either got upset and screamed at me or just crawled away, HA!! I don't think he liked taking turns, it was…"
