    F is on the move!

    And like any baby practicing mobility, the best motivation is the stuff you're not allowed to have.

    What do you mean I can't chew on the dog bowl? That's the only reason I crawled over here!

    Chargers are a scary one during that phase.

    Overalls are so great then because you can magically pick them up by the back and fly them back to where they can be. Can’t tell you how many times C1 got snatched away from the dog’s bowls.

    Ugh I know it. She's already gotten ahold of one charger. It's like a beacon in the night for her

    We have baby gates everywhere. That's the only way to keep her out of things.

    Although, she is in her extreme climb phase. She will use anything and everything to try to get over the baby gates. I really miss parent & tot gymnastics class.

    FWIW, from a data point of 1, our kid loved the dog’s bowls and toys and he’s fine.

    Not my finest moment, but I can remember snacking on cat food once with my little brother. I was maybe 3? Probably old enough to know better :shrug:

    Same. We figure it was on us to keep the kid away from her stuff. He def got into it a few times but he did learn eventually.

    I also miss your parent & tot gymnastics class. She looked like she had so much fun at those.

    I definitely ate dog food as a kid. We're constantly pulling A away from the water dish. Gross and I don't need the mess.

    A loves blueberries and they're usually the first thing she goes for on her plate, but apparently she loves bread and cheese more as she just downed an entire grilled cheese sandwich.

    This child has now figured out to scream to communicate. She will look at you and yell if you are not following her commands.

    E figured out the dog bowl. When we were headed out, she picked it up and dropped it. It scared her and she repeated, "Uh oh!" over and over again. We told her it was ok, but that is what happens when you play with the water bowl. She has been tempted at least once more, but hasn't played with it since.

    ETA: Would not recommend intentionally traumatizing your kid.

    I am eating a CHEESE sandwich because GI okayed me to go back to as much dairy as I want. Pool full of tzatziki here I come.

    Oh that’s next. I have a dairy wish list. Currently I am eating smoked Gouda.

    Today mamafish and my mil threw out the idea of having a third. Slow your roll ladies, #2 isn’t even out yet. Also hell no.

    FYI, there is such a thing as too much Gouda.

    This happened an alarming amount when I was pregnant with S. And all kinds of people (family, friends, coworkers, randoms). Wtf people, let me get through this one first before asking your obnoxious questions that are non of your business.

    I just think that is so rude. My aunt (who has two boys herself) said we needed to have a 3rd to have a girl. Um, fuck off?

    I wonder what the logic there is. “Since you’re making more than one, keep that baby making factory in business!”

    Rooster did point out to them that it’s a lot easier to have a third grandkid than a third kid.

    I will admit I never considered a third until I was pregnant with my second. Until shit hit the fan I was feeling like I could do it again. Riding those hormones, lol. Then I was sobbing to the OBs that this was supposed to be different, I can’t do this again, sterilize me.

    so much of it is gender based too. I had one person say “oh, a girl, your husband must be so disappointed. I’m sure he’ll be ready to try for a boy soon”.
