William updates

Master William is now 18 months old and is FULL of energy... he's a firecracker. He wants to climb most anything and never sits still. It's hard to take him to places that require sitting down for more than 10 minutes. I am sure some of you will comment and tell me that it does not get any better for a long time. Yes, I have noticed this in boys.

I decided to make a list of all the latest strange and cute things the boy is doing these days.
  • We attend both of his sisters volleyball games frequently. If you dare try to clap or cheer he will start to cry as if you were beating him. I have to remember NOT to cheer. It's hard.
  • William is teething and instead of biting on a toy or washcloth he prefers his hands. Yuck
  • He does not put things in his mouth like normal toddlers. He never really did that even as a baby.
  • His new thing he loves to do is find random items and bring them to me. His latest finds: a staple, paperclip, half a toothpick, thumbtack, dog fur, an electric outlet "safety" cover and a variety of tiny pieces of string or plastic. All of these are choking hazards and thankfully this is where the not putting anything in his mouth comes in really well.
  • He loves to do his dancie dance when watching Yo Gabba Gabba (so do I)
  • When he does something wrong and gets yelled at he comes up to my face and kisses me repeatedly. On the mouth.
  • William thinks he is my husband, he really does.
  • He loves to plow. Plow??? Yes plow. He takes his chair and pushes it around the house like a plow. He is really serious too when he is plowing! It's the funniest thing! He even knows how to maneuver his plow around tight corners.

Well I hope everyone is caught up on what the little guy is up to these days!

Nasty little habit

My sweet little son has developed a nasty little habit to go along with the numerous other icky habits that seem to be male gender related. He likes to stick his fingers in his mouth. I am sure you wonder what is so bad about that since it is very normal for little ones to do that. He likes to take both hands and stick as many fingers into his mouth as far in as he can get them. He does it until he makes gagging noises. He then laughs and does it over and over again. This is entertaining to him and disgusting to me. The other day I had just dressed him and we were both getting ready to walk out the door to a school function for his sister. He decides to put his hands in his mouth except this time it was a very nasty and stinky outcome. I had to run over to him immediately and strip all his clothes off and bathe him from head to toe. Good thing I am super mom and still made it out to the high school with time to spare. Wow, boys are some interesting little creatures. When I told Dwayne the story he laughed. Anyone surprised?

Questions for my parent friends

From time to time I come across things that are child related that I draw a blank on. I always resort to my blog parents to help me out. Here goes my first question. Have you experienced teeth grinding with your toddler? William has been doing that recently and it's not all the time but periodically throughout the day. It think he is mesmerized at the fact that he has teeth! Is there anything you can do about it? We usually take our hand and put it on his mouth and say "No! Don't do that" I'm not sure how well that's working. Any advice on this one?

My next one is that I suspect my kid has nasal allergies. He tends to sneeze a lot in the morning and evening hours. Do you have a toddler with allergies? If so how was it determined that they are in fact allergies? Does it require medication?

I know some of you wonder why I am asking you these questions and not the doctor. Well, his doctor thinks I need to fatten him up, others would swear he is two and quite big for his age. I just don't always trust everything the doc says. Thanks for taking the time to help me here!
