Happy Belated Birthday to all the April babies.

Can't believe they are now three!

From formerly krissyfits and Bodhi.
Here is my question for the day:

Do you give your 2 year old a multivitamin?

My daughter turned 2 on April 4th! Time flies, it really does. I can't believe it's been almost three years since this community began. I know there's lots of other birthdays coming up so please post pics of your little ones! Let's get this community active again :)

I'm already pregnant with #3. Has anyone gotten pregnant again yet? Is anyone else planning to?

Hope you all are well.

The weather is finally approaching normal for October. Is 18 months too young to introduce a kid to hot cocoa? I make my own from scratch and he's eyeing my mug like I've been keeping a secret from him.

Nap Question

Hello Ladies,
    I have a problem I hope you can help me with. Cameron just turned 18 months today and for the last 2 weeks or so has started regressing when it comes to nap time. I used to put him in his crib with his blanket, stuffed tigger and baba and he would go down within an hour and sleep for at least two hours but now he's fighting it tooth and nail. He'll throw all his toys and blanket and even his baba out of his crib. For the most part he doesn't cry in there though he'll sit there and play with his feet and laugh but won't sleep. I try to keep him in his crib for as long as possible hoping he'll go down but sometimes he just won't and then of course around 5pm he gets crazy cranky! He wakes up every morning at 7am and goes to bed at 7pm so he's on a healthy schedule. 5pm is bedtime and then bathtime, we put on his Mickey Mouse Club house DVD for an hour and it's off to bed at night. I don't see why his naps are becoming an issue now all of a sudden. Is anyone else having problems with naps? If you are what are you doing to resolve it?

Imagination Station

Does anyone's baby 'pretend' things?
Developmentally, this is bizarre, and my daughter is weirding me out.

A few months ago, at La Leche League, a little girl had animal crackers.  
Apparently, Abigail wanted one, but the girl wasn't sharing.
So, Abby sat down next to her and pretended to eat a cracker.

I thought it was cute.

Now, however, she spends quite a lot of time eating fake food out of anyone's hand.
She'll go up to you, make your hand into a cup, and take a fake bit of food out. 
She eats it, she offers it to everyone around her.
It's weird.

She also pretends to drink.
She'll take a container, tip it to her mouth, and go 'Aaaaah' like she's refreshed.

She also pretends to fall out of bed, so we'll rescue her.

These are all cute games, but developmentally not on track.

Am I over-thinking this?

What activities do you do?

So Kimberly is now 14 months old and I find myself constantly trying to think of things to do with her so we don't get bored. Yesterday we went to the park and played in the sand but I'm not sure I'm up to the walk again today so I am trying to think of activities to do with her. What do you all recommend or do/have done yourself to keep a toddler entertained?

Drinking from a cup

My son, who hit 1 year Saturday, will only drink from my breast or from a bottle. I'm having a really hard time getting him to try trainer cups. He can hold them just fine but refuses to drink from them, no matter how much we market it, no matter how hungry/thirsty he is. I've tried putting all kinds of things in there--diluted grape juice, breast milk, formula (which he also consumes). I admit he ends up getting so upset I end up either nursing him or giving him a bottle, so now it's feeling a lot like a power struggle. I've even tried making sure he's had enough to not need liquid urgently before encouraging him to finish things up using a cup. Any advice/suggestions?
