2 Year Old Molars

We already knew this kid has a lot of teeth, and she got em fast. What we didn’t know was that she’d start sprouting her 2-year-old molars at 1 and a half. So here we go again with the same teething symptoms as before…except worse. Worse because the teething tablets that we used when she…

Naughty Words

Our chatty baby has started repeating what she hears. Very good for her vocabulary, but not so great for us. We definitely have to watch what we say from now on. I started being more careful at around one month, when I read that babies can start learning languages at that age. We talked to…

Surgery: Ear Tubes

It’s pretty common nowadays for kids to get tubes put in due to a chronic ear infection. Of course, this was unheard of when I was a kid and the idea of my tiny baby going under and having surgery is super scary. But after talking to the pediatrician and then seeing a specialist, this…

Pediatric Dentist

I didn’t know that there were dentists that specialize in pediatrics. Why didn’t I know that? Did you know that? I actually didn’t realize they existed, until I saw one next to a restaurant in a shopping center I frequent. I honestly thought people didn’t go to the dentist until they went to kindergarten. At…

Air + Scare

Happy Halloween! Since our little bug is too young to eat the candy she’d get door to door, we decided to take her to an event instead. I know I know, the candy she gets are actually for us and should be considered a perk. Our friends have told us we were missing out on…

Walking + Talking

Whoa. Time is flying by. She went from taking cautious steps, to running (like Naruto) and pacing like an old man, zero to a hundred real quick. Things are happening so quickly that I can’t seem to write fast enough to keep up. There are lots of times where I look at her and I’m…

Night Terrors

One of the things no one warned me about were night terrors. When the little one was sick, with probably a combination of HFM and an ear infection, I noticed that she wasn’t sleeping through the night. She would wake up screaming and crying, and no amount of comfort helped. It only made it worse….

Hand Foot Mouth Disease

The germs are here. Summer germs. Apparently, Hand Foot Mouth disease is a summer virus. And my tiny little one got it. And in my eyes, she got it bad. A big brother of a kid in her daycare got it from his preschool and it spread like wildfire. Everyone I talked to said their…

Baby Steps

I didn’t think she would ever walk. Part of me really wanted her to, part of me really didn’t want her to. Stay my little baby forever. But it’s happened. She started walking along things and then one day when she thought we weren’t looking took a few steps on her own. It was a…

Baby Teeth

Guys. My kid has a lot of teeth. I don’t know if it’s normal, but her friends don’t have this many yet. She’s got both her molars and 4 top, 4 bottom, and her pediatrician said her canines are coming in. She can, for the most part, chew anything. It’s scary. Mostly because I am…
