So, there is another woman that goes to our meeting that has a son a few months younger then my daughter. (Liv is 14 months, her son is 11 months) and yesterday I took my daughter with me to the annual Tea. This woman's mother was there and was making comments about my daughters lack of teeth. (She only has one so far.) I honestly felt like screaming at her that Her grandson is fat! He is, and I know babies are supposed to have extra chunk to them, but he weighs 30 lbs already! My daughter weighs 24! (She is very tall and lean.) it seriously annoyed the crap out of me as she is going on and on about how unstable my daughter is with her walking, (I think she walks like most new walkersy) and how her vocabulary isn't huge. (She has about a 6 word vocabulary that she says. It includes dada, momma, Aahgah (her word for dog or a victory depending on the inflection), and a very rough 'thank you, here you go, and what's this') I feel like both the kids mom and grandmom are putting my husband and Is' parenting style down just because they think they can. Oh yeay for you, you are still exclusively breast feeding your baby and he weighs so much he JUST started rolling over all the way on his own, refuses any solids, and can't fit any shoes made for babies because he has (direct quite from the grandmother) 'little meatball feet'. Their family and my husbands family are two of the more influential families in our Meeting so I thinks it's a turf war type thing but I wish they (the other family) would leave me and my baby out of it!
