Quoting meggymama:" thank you She is currently learning to count and recognise numbers against letters so maybe thats ... [snip!] ... this is? Her speech is becoming incredible too - it all happens so quixkly doesnt it? OT - Is your AVI from the upper hand?"
My avi is from Arrested Development.
It sounds like she is doing great. LOTS of people told me to not do this or that & try to push Ds into "growing up" as I was prego with #2 (he was sleeping with me still, not pottying, etc). I did just the opposite & catered to his little regressions & I had the least trouble with jealousy between my kids I've ever seen. I also accommodated what I could after the baby came. They just want to be sure you are still there for them if they need you. If you let them know you are...they are more likely to act independent because they know it is safe to explore & still come running back if it gets to be too much. He wasn't ready to PT while I was prego - I'd ask & he'd get upset so I let it go. After the baby he decided one day he was ready & that was done. So much for all the people that sai dI needed to put my foot down. I've never changed a pair of dirty pants on him ever save a few wetting the bed accidents - and I mean a FEW.
Do what works for your
child...and you'll be fine. Every kid has their own needs & as long as you don't mind whatever it is, then there is no
problem. Both my kids transitioned out of our bed fine. I also waited
until I felt like they seemed ready, but there was no crying & such people talk about. I've never had that with ANY thing we've done. No need. I am patient & they seem to get there when they are ready regardless of anything I or don't do anyway, so I've learned if I wait it out it often happens in the same time frame anyway - with less stress.
