Here are some of the thoughts swirling around in my head lately.
-I wonder when Sullivan will start to wean himself. He is about to be 15 months old and he is obsessed with nursing still. I have nothing but good things to say about breastfeeding but at this point he is rougher, heavier, and harder to wrangle, lets not mention the nipple twisters (TMI alert) and I am tired.
-He's not sleeping through the night. Our nights usually go a little like this.
7:00 to 7:30 bath time
7:30 to 8:00 I rock him to sleep
11 to 12 he wakes up, I rock him and put him back in his crib. Or if I am functioning on autopilot I bring him into bed with me.
2:00 to 5:00am he wakes up and I almost always bring him into bed if he is not already there with me.
7:30-8:00am wake up to start the day.
There is definitely room for improvement here. I am not worried about it because we all get plenty of sleep and honestly that is all that matters.
-He likes to eat:
orange peels(true story)
pumpkin and sunflower seeds
-I am also pretty sure Sully has an allergy to milk.
This picture was taken after I tried giving him baby yogurt in November. He gets contact reactions even when he touches milk with his fingers.
-I started working out at the student rec center here. They have child care for a few hours each day and it is so nice to exercise again! The first time I took him he cried but calmed down when he was held, the next time he cried for thirty seconds when I dropped him off and then started playing. Yay! I also took him to the pool three times last week. He absolutely loves it and always has a great nap after.
-We got a juicer and have been enjoying all kinds of fresh juice!
This one was:
I just add ice and enjoy!
Well that is about all I have at the moment.
