Should probably mention that Lycan started walking a bit here and there on Christmas and the day after, then didn't walk at all until this week (Jan 6) and he's been walking like crazy, multi-tasking, and trying to run, too.
Today I also bought Lycan some wooden blocks from Playskool. I wish I could've found plastic or cloth blocks, because these are rough to the touch with sharp edges. I still want to make him some Pagan themed blocks, which are well sanded, corners rounded, and sealed. These are not sealed. However they did come with a nifty bag. But yeah....sharp and rough. He seems to like em though.
Aside from their texture, they're colorful, with upper and lower case letters, woodburned pictures of numbers, animals, +, -, =, and a door, bricks, 40 blocks, etc. Pretty nifty. Here's a customer review with pictures and play.
Last weekend, the fetus--ranging 18-19 weeks-ish--kept me awake just a kicking and squirming. It was great, even though I was needing the sleep. This evening, they gave me quite the kick.
Over all, I've only gained 7 lbs, despite the junk I've been eating, so not too bad. I thought I was gaining a ton due to my diet. With my son, I ate super healthy. With this one....eh, not super duper, though I'm getting better.
Speaking of the squirms....
