So, what do you do when you have a biter? I thought I had nipped this in the butt the 1st time it happened. Sofi would bite feet. This time, it is Ian's arm. I know it happens when they are vying for the same toy but anyone that has more than 1 kid knows that fighting for toys is a constant battle. I need to get her to stop. She has left bite marks on each of his arms. It looks bad, like I'm not watching them but I am. She is quick! For the record, she doesn't seem to want to bite Gabi either. I think she knows that Ian is the weakest of the 3.
Any suggestions on how to make this stop? Please leave a comment!
Of course, I have to write more! The kids seem to have gone through a pretty serious growth spurt. Their legs are much longer, looking more like kid legs than baby legs. Gabi has even lost 1 set of rolls! She has started walking as well. That makes 2 for 3. Here is a video of her practicing (don't mind Miss Sofi, apparently she likes the spotlight).
Ian is also doing much better. He is pulling up on just about anything. He is still a bit wobbly though & we attribute that to balance or core strength issues. He continues to wear shoes all day to help him w/ standing. He will have 2 therapy sessions on the 12th. They will assess his needs again & will decide if he needs more services. Also, I am weaning him. I really wanted to go longer but unfortunately I am battling mastitis again. They say once you get it, you are much more prone to getting it over & over. Hence, my decision to wean him. He has been fighting me anyway, probably more so b/c he is cutting 2 teeth. It is what it is. Since he is the only one left, I figure it is time.
Sofi experienced her 1st split lip about a week ago. She fell while she was walking & cut her upper & lower lip on her teeth. She was a bit hysterical at first but Daddy did a good job patching her up & stopping the bleeding.
This weekend is their birthday party so I am going to be pretty busy but looking forward to it!
