Max and Claire had their 18th month well baby today. I was looking forward to this appointment for many reasons, the major one was to discuss behavior. The past few weeks have worn me out, so much I was wondering if you could have 18th month postpartum. Not really, but these last few weeks have not been the most fun. When they were younger, I controlled everything.... sleep schedule, food, etc.. Now all I hear is "NO" 10000 times a day, throwing food, cups, toys, hitting, pushing, crying while holding my legs and the ever famous tantrums. She assured me that was normal and I was ok for feeling the way I did and that it is very hard esp when you have 2 doing those things at one time... or spread throughout the day.
She suggested time out in the pack n play for one minute for misbehaving and to just ignore when they had tantrums. Sounds easy right? I try to ignore Max but after a minute of blood curling screams, I give in... a minute seems like 30.
On to the fun things...
they are doing great :)
Max: 30 lbs 1.5 oz 95%
34 inches 92%
Claire: 24lbs 7oz 75%
32 1/4 inches 75%
And if I can stay awake long enough tonight, I will blog about our "baller" status... flying (thanks to inlaws) to Philly Saturday and returning home Sunday (thanks to my mom for watching the kiddos)
