Our babies are at, or nearing, or in some cases past the 18 month mark. What goals do you have for your little one before they are 2?
~Beth~ Wife to my Airman Chris, and mommy to: Anthony Nathaniel (8/31/04), Anastasia Fae (8/01/06), Baby C (lost on 10/12/07), David Cillian (7/31/08), Charles George (4/29/10), and Alan Christopher (2/22/12)
1. Night weaning and/or STTN on her own, in her own bed, alone. We've fallen into a routine of she wakes up, I bring her to my bed, we finish the night. But DH isn't big on co-sleeping and may be going to day shift this winter. So we need to break this habit.
2. Quell the separation anxiety and jealousy. No one else is allowed to touch me if Kolbie is around. She will literally push the other person out of my lap or away from me. I'm also not allowed to go anywhere without her. I want to be able to leave her with someone and not feel guilty that she's just screaming the whole time.
1) Sleeping in her room that she shares with Lily. Right now, she sleeps in there only about 20% of the time at night, but she does nap in there.
2) Potty trained at night. Right now she's pretty much day trained, but is still wetting at night a bit.
3) Get her used to more adults. She's good with DH, me and my parents, but she tends to cry around other people, including our close friends that see her all the time. I'd like to be able to leave her with some of my friends sometimes without worrying about her being upset the whole time.
Separation anxiety- she needs to stop screaming her head off if I leave her with someone other than DH. She also freezes and gives this look out of the corner of her eye like "Why are you talking to me?" when someone comes over and tries to play or talk to her.
Tantrums- mild ones involve just stomping her feet when she cries, but they can also evolve into rolling on the floor and shrieking and shooing my hands away if I try to pick her up. It would be nice if she wouldn't do that any time I say no.
I guess the main obvious one would be talking - so just working with his therapist to get him to have some words. I probably wont even think about PT until he's 2 by his adjusted ago so thats not anywhere on my radar right now
Other then that we're doing pretty good - he doesnt have separation anxiety, is on par with gross and fine motor skills, sleeps through the night etc.
To take her paci away, I've been waiting until she understands who the paci fairy is and them vaamoose it'll be just gone over night.
Potty training, I've moved the potty into the bathroom and she understands what it is and the concepts it just needs to mastered. It's going to be such a challenge for us since our family is constantly on the move.
