I feel like a broken record with whats going on with us. J is still slowly progressing with her speech therapy and working on getting her mouth to make vowel sounds and putting multiple sounds together. I still get my moments of frustration and wondering if and when its going to really click and she just starts talking away instead of babbling.
M started another session of swim lessons today and is just loving it. I'm going to have to try and figure out scheduling to see about continuing it once she starts school.
Then theres Aj, who is just growing like a weed. He is already 10 months and in sz 18 month clothes, dabbling into the 24month stuff. No walking yet but he is starting to think about it more and working his way towards it. Im in denial on having to start thinking and planning his 1st birthday but at the same time it seems like it was forever ago that I had him.
Also has anyone had their kids tooth come in cracked or with what looks like a piece missing? He hasn't had any trauma to his mouth or anything that would make me think cause it. But one of his top front teeth looks to be coming in either cracked or with a good little what looks like a good sized chip in the middle of it.
E chipped her front tooth almost as soon as it came in. I never did anything about it.
Things are going pretty well. I'm having to work a lot more than expected which kind of breaks my heart. I just want to snuggle up on the couch with her but I work when she sleeps. Probably 2-4 hours a week day

We are doing well over here. The kids were at the IL's house for a few days, and got back last night.
DS was scribbling with crayons and then held up his paper and said, "Look! Look!" and it was OMG ADORABLE. He was so proud of his scribbles. SO CUTE.
DD was in hysterics last night because we didn't have her 'octopus'. Well, I (like the dumb mom I am) thought she meant the octopus star lamp she has at MIL's house in her room there. NO. It was that blasted pink glo-worm seahorse she's had since she was a baby. I had put it away in her stuffed animals instead of putting it back on her bed. Sigh. Octopus.
We're trying to enroll G in a trial for peanut allergic children to gradually desensitize them to peanuts through wearing a skin patch containing peanut protein. Part of the enrollment process is "proving" their allergy by giving the child a food challenge and having them react to the doses containing peanut, but not react to the placebo doses. We were at Seattle Children's yesterday for day 1 which we assume was placebo. We go back Monday for the doses most likely containing peanut. Some of the other children in the study have needed multiple doses of EpiPen to halt their reactions to the peanuts. I know it's for her long-term benefit, but it's sooo hard to potentially be poisoning your child.
X is picking up new words and phrases all over the place. He told DH yesterday "I got it" when DH was trying to help him go down the stairs. He also started the night sleeping in G's room for the first time ever. We're hoping to move him there so we can have our room back before baby comes.
