    QOTD: How often do you read to your DC? Everytime I try to read to DD she has a fit and wants to close the book or turn the pages in the book before I can read the page. Does your DC like to be read to?

    My DS likes books, but he won't usually let me read more than a page of two. He likes to touch the books, turn pages, chew on it, etc. The touch and feel type books are the ones he really likes. Those will sometimes hold his attention because they are interactive. We probably sit down and try to read a couple of times every other day. Not enough probably. I must be doing something right though because if he finds a book on the floor he opens it and "reads" it out loud!

    DS was watching Sesame St. this morning and he heard Ernie laugh and then he laughed like him. It was sooo cute.

    Question: My son fusses at dogs, people, the tv, etc. He points his finger and gets onto them verbally. He has seen me do it to the dog when the dog barks and scares him. I did it to be funny and make DS stop crying and he started immitating me. Now he does it in front of people and they laugh and encourage it. It is funny and cute but at the same time I think it looks bad. Like he thinks it's okay to "yell" at everyone, or like people will think I do it to him. Any idea how to make it stop other than to just ignore it and hope he forgets about it?

    No other DC (yet)


    Reading - DD loves being read to and reading on her own. She does try to turn the pages much faster than I can read and I often don't finish books. From what I heard, any exposure is good, whether it is reading books, chewing on them, or whatever. I used to have to give DD a book to hold and chew on while I read her another one. It seemed to help w/ her grabbing and eating the one I was trying to read.

    H went to the Dr. today, I thought he had a cold but it was just allergies. He is now 19.6 1/2 lbs! I've been trying to fatten him up a bit and I guess it's working.

    reading At bedtime he'll usually let me read most of a short book. Other times he just wants to flip the pages himself!

    Pink_Converse - Yeah for some weight gain!

    QOTD: What is your DC's sleep schedule?

    Before we moved DD would sleep from 7:30pm to 6:30am and then nap at 9am and 2pm (both naps around 90 minutes).

    After we moved DD has been sleeping from 8:30pm to 7-7:30am and then nap around 10ish and 2ish.

    Anyone down to one nap a day?

    MMH - We go between one and two naps depending on the day. Lately he's been waking up BEFORE 6 am which I could do without! Interesting that her sleep schedule shifted when you moved.

    shortcake - We actually had pushed back her bedtime. It allows my DH to spend time with her in the evenings plus with the days staying lighter later it just has been working for us.

    Sleep - DD goes to bed between 7:30 and 8 and wakes around 6:30. She naps at 9am and 2pm. Usually her morning nap is 2 hours. I don't let her sleep past 11am or maybe 11:15am. Her afternoon nap usually begins right around 2pm or about 3 hours after she wakes up from her morning nap. That nap is about 1.5-2 hours. I wake her by 4 or 4:30 if she's not up already. Seems we are very far from moving to 1 nap!

    DS's sleep schedule varies depending on if he goes to his nanny's house or if he is home with me.

    Nanny Day:
    Sleeps 7:30pm-6:15am (we wake him up)
    Naps 9:30am-1pm, 4-5pm

    Mom Day:
    Sleeps 7:30pm-8am (wakes up on his own)
    Naps 11am-1pm, 4:30-5:30pm

    There have been a few days when he naps just once (like today, little bugger!), but we aren't anywhere close to doing that official transition. I need him to take two naps!!
