Life is Good

It has been a busy time. Baby D is growing and changing every day, and trying out new skills. He is trying hard to roll from his tummy to his back. He pushes himself up almost to the “tipping point”, but is not quite there yet. He tries and tries to crawl, and he can move forward a bit, and move himself around in a circle, but has not got his knees under himself enough to take off. He is enjoying making “raspberry” sounds and blowing bubbles, and looks right at us and makes sounds that truly appear to be attempts at speech. It frustrates him when we don’t understand. In about four weeks of elimination communication we have had four misses– not bad at all. We show him words every day, and rotate a new word into each set every couple of days. Doman suggests adding a new word and removing an old word from each set daily, but we don’t get to each set three times a day– more like twice, or once on some days. So I let him see each set at least three times before changing any words. He enjoys seeing the words. I say to him “Mommy has some words to show you. Would you like to see the words?”. He usually smiles, and when I show the words he focuses on them and smiles. All in all life is good, and Baby D continues to grow and develop.

    How old is your baby? Love the hair! Mine is 3 and 1/2 months and really starting to interact. I love it!
    ps-As a mom you might like this resource called the Mom’s Guide to Caring for Little Teeth ( This is my 2nd child but I’ve already forgotten what things are important to do when they are babies. Helpful stuff.

  2. It’s amazing how quickly they grow and change, isn’t it!? 4 misses in 4 weeks of EC is AMAZING! I’m pretty sure we’ve had 4 misses THIS week, and we’ve been practicing EC for nearly a year and a half! Baby D’s hair is awesome, plain and simple.
