Celebrating four, one milestone at a time

My third (and last) child Dominic turns four today. He was the only child I didn’t push to hit milestones. I knew he would be my last child, excuse me while I cry. If it where up to me he’d still be my gummy six month old and if kids weren’t so expensive I’d have a baseball team by now. I always looked forward to milestones with my other two. I couldn’t wait to start making baby food, putting my baby in walking shoes, buying undies instead of diapers. 

With Dominic it was different, I hate the idea of him growing up. Mostly because I know I will never experience these milestones again. And then there comes the pressure. I made the hard decision to put Aiden and Brody in public school this year. I’ll share our decision to put homeschooling on hold later. But for right now I am struggling with public school, on one hand my kids are thriving on the other I am watching my kindergartner being pressured by state mandates to be on a first grade level (or at least the first grade level my now middle schooler had). Bottom line, I feel like the pressures are so big and coming too young.  

I chose not to pressure Dominic to walk, rather I encouraged him taking steps when he would try on his own. He walked for the first time at 14 months. Some may argue that is late or my daughter walked at ten months. As much as I enjoy hearing comparisons (NOT) I had an eleven month old walker. I don’t know if our pressure got him to walk faster or if it was just part of his make. But I do know that the months that my baby took to “catch up” to his brother in age development has no bearing on the differences I see in them. Dominic seems to have done everything so far a bit later.  He hadn’t picked up more that 10 words by two years, potty training st almost three and I still found myself struggling to keep him accident free.  I have never pushed him through milestones, but watched him enjoy them at his own pace. 

Domi four

At four we are hitting new milestones like singing the alphabet, counting to ten, recognizing shapes. Learning to play hopscotch, kinda. Is he on development for his age? I am not sure that anyone can answer that. What I do know is he enjoys singing the alphabet, because his kindergarten older brother frequently recites it. He has  become a parrot when it come to his big brother, Dominic enjoys learning and repeating everything his big brother does. I refuse to run the milestone race.

My only concern for our four year old milestones is that he has the opportunity to explore, engage and enjoy being four. Happy birthday to my beautiful boy I am going to enjoy celebrating four.

  70. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  71. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  72. Whats up are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up
    my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  75. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  77. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  83. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  84. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  87. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  88. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  113. I don’t create a comment, however I read a ton of remarks here. I do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it look like some of these comments come across like they are left by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting at other places, I would like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  114. I tend not to drop a great deal of responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here . And I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be only me or does it look like some of these remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of every one of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  115. I drop a comment each time I appreciate a article on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s caused by the passion displayed in the post I browsed. And on this post. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😛 I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  116. I think what you posted made a bunch of sense. But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier title? I am not saying your content isn’t good, however what if you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create post titles to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

  117. I believe everything posted was actually very reasonable. But, consider this, suppose you added a little information? I am not saying your content is not good, but suppose you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  118. I just could not depart your site prior to suggesting that I actually loved the usual information a person provide for your guests? Is going to be again incessantly to check out new posts.

  137. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  138. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  140. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod.

  143. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  144. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  156. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  159. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  160. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  213. Hello there friend! An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers Again thanks alot for this!
