Our girl is finally a year old. The days are long and the months are short, I keep getting reminders with photos on my phone “one year ago” and well of course I have baby fever now. My husband and I haven’t used protection since being pregnancy and now I feel I’m ready to actually get pregnant again, so here’s hoping.
Little munchkin is now a toddler, days before her birthday she started walking independently. She’s been cruising on furniture for awhile now but it’s amazing how quickly it went from one step to walking across the house without stumbling. Took less than a week. Im wondering what it will look like in another week!
Sleep is still a tough point. She seems to be transitioning to one nap a day which I just read is super late but I don’t fallow milestone so I can’t say much else about that. She’s taking a really short nap around noon then a 1-2 hr nap later on usually starting 3ish. About 9/10 times it takes at least an hour to put her down for bed for night usually start around 730 or 8 but sometimes takes up to 3 hours to get her to stay asleep. She’s a decent sleeper when she’s down though. Up 2 or 3 times a night to nurse, my nights are still a blur and up for the day around 730-830.
We got peanut a small baby doll for her birthday and a little stroller. She also received a bigger talking/laughing doll from her paternal grandfather. A bubble making lawn mower from my landscaper dad and Sleepers from my mom.
We did loads of gardening leading up to her birthday so the yard looks lovely, it’s been so nice to just let her run wild out there, play in her inch of water in the kiddy pool or push around her little lawn mower and turn on her bubble maker. Makes for a lovely hour or so.
She’s eating lots of solids all of a sudden and only nursing 3 or 4 times a day now. Not that weening is a priority but our breastfeeding journey has been a nightmare from the beginning and I’m looking forward for it to be over. I hope if we are blessed to have another baby it will be smoother. So I am gently and slowly trying to replace nursing. Getting up in the morning instead of nursing her to try and get more sleep, I still nurse to sleep for her two naps and to bed at night, but if she stirs I’m trying to shush and pat instead nursing her right away. I’ve never been a ‘nurse her for every little thing’ so at least I dont have to break that habit. Hoping in about 2-3 months we will be weened at least during the day.
In other news we are hoping to get pregnant again, though we aren’t BDing as often as we need to, we are no longer concerned if it was to happen. Cross your fingers our infertility has resolved itself as the specialist says it can do after being pregnant. If not, in 6 months we will seek help out.
