Making a mess!!!!
I am ready and excited for Alex to pull all the toilet paper off the roll, pull the pots and pans out of the cabinets, and pull all the books off the book shelf, but for now I will settle for the mess he makes in his little area that I place him in. He managed to pull out every last toy in his basket of toys, and he does move around in the area I place him in about the width of a three to four foot circle.
Speaking of which this brings a question to my mind for you RTS moms. When my other boys started crawling they went from rocking to crawling all around the house in a matter of days maybe a few weeks. Alex goes forward on his hands and knees (well one leg is usually stretched out to the side), when you other moms say my child started crawling at 10 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years did you mean they were crawling all around the house, or taking a few "steps" in the little circle you placed them in? I don't think its time for the he is crawling post, but he certainly is mobile to a certain degree. So what did you mean when you say your child started crawling at this age? Were they crawling all around the house or just in a little area? That was a lot of rambling for one question.
Now for your questions, I have received a few emails asking about the recurrence of RTS for us. Thank you for your question. The chance of us having another child with RTS is the same as you having a child with RTS, it happens spontaneously, and most literature will tell you it happens 1 in every 100,000 births. So I suppose I would have to have 100,000 more babies:) RTS is not inherited, no one is a carrier, unless they themselves have RTS like Alex. So I'm not concerned with having another child with RTS, just the other million things that could go wrong.
Even though he has nap bed head, doesnt he look handsome with his new haircut.
