A year and a half of Biscuit.

2009-12-03 - 4:48 p.m.

A year and a half ago, my second baby was born. Today I have to admit that hes technically no longer a baby but a toddler, but hell always be my baby to me, no matter how big or old he gets.

Biscuit is not exactly thriving if you look at his weight (still only 3rd percentile as far as we know), but hes certainly alert, active, adorable, and insatiably curious. We cannot keep him out of the cupboards and are seriously considering putting kid-proof locks on them. (His sister could have cared less about the cupboards so this is a new experience for us.)

He is very much a stereotypical boy in that loves cars and makes little vrroooming sounds as he runs them over the table. We can barely understand a word he says (its common, Im told, for boys to have slower development of language skills), but when he holds a phone up to his ear and chirps hawo? we can barely contain our swooning, so high is the cute factor.

Hes got a checkup this coming Monday with the family doc and a follow-up consultation with the dietician on Thursday, so well at least find out if hes still following the various development curves, even if he isnt gaining on them.

Im considering when to wean him these days: hes not getting much from me in the way of nutrition at this point and it seems like hes dependant on it to fall back to sleep when he wakes during the night. This is obviously not an optimal situation. Its not the worst either though, because I love having his little body snuggled up to me and I know its only a matter of time before he wont want to cuddle at all.

That means no swiping my stuff - text, images, etc. - without asking.

P.S. If you're emailing me, replace the [at] with @ in the "to" line. Oh, and if you put the word "journal" in the subject line it'll have a better chance of making it past my junk mail filters.
