We’ve been trying to teach Teapot more sign language. She just picked up “please” a couple of days ago, but rather than a hand making a circle at chest level, she kind of scrubs her hand up and down her sweater. It’s pretty close! Today, Teapot’s dad told me he was trying to teach her […]
Sometimes when I lean in to kiss Teapot, she squeals and squirms away. I blame Teapot’s dad – the way he kisses her, he makes MUMMUMMUMUM sounds and tickles her ear with his lips and prickly facial hair. She has this radioactive-green gibbon (we call him Gibsy!) that she will hold out for me to […]
Sometimes she’ll say “all done.” Sometimes she’ll say “all bun!” And sometimes it’s “all bum!” which makes me laugh and laugh. I love you, Teapot.
14: how old lil Teapot is in months now. Dudes, she’s a year and two months old. How can that be? She tells me “all done!” and throws her hands up even when she means “more!” She can do a half-assed version of baby sign language for “more” – all fingers on one hand touch […]
…so I can start again. That’s how the song goes, anyway. It’s been a pretty good couple of months in the dog-and-teapot household, with a few hiccups. On the Teapot front, we have four teeth now, walking > crawling and a *toddler* of 12.5 months. On the Dog front… we have a dog who occasionally […]
Teapot is almost nine months old. I can’t believe it. She’s now been out longer than she’d been in. Now she has two bottom teeth (one fully erupted, the other right on its tail). She can feed herself about 70% of all Cheerios we give her… her pincer grip developed surprisingly quickly and now it’s […]
Dear Teapot, Just because the ad has a picture of pizza on it does not mean it is pizza. Sorry for the disappointment. love, mom.
Home from the allergist’s office. Skin prick tests for tree nuts, peanuts, fresh peach and peach extract: negative. I let out a sigh I didn’t know I’d been holding. The doctor told us that we were free to try Teapot on any food that had caused a possible reaction (avocado, peanuts, peaches) and to let […]
If you’ve read some of my prior posts, you’ll know that Teapot and I had a rough start to our breastfeeding journey. Well, today, we went to the grocery store and donated just about all of our leftover formula stash to the food bank. Gathering up the stock, I felt strange. I didn’t expect to […]
