Weigh in, peeps!
- I have been nursing for 10.5 months now and have yet to get my period. Just curious how other bfing mamas compare.
- S is 10 months old and we have never left him with a sitter.
I’ll add more items as they occur to me as I’m sure I have many.
ION, we have a play date set up on Saturday with the Mamas we met at Gymboree a few weeks back. So looking forward to it! We need some new Mama friends as much as S needs some friends with 2 Mamas (try saying that five times really fast)!
While I am not currently participating, can I just say how much I’m loving NaBloPoMo? New content all the time! Love! I’ll try go post more often this month, too, so I’m not too much of a hypocrite 🙂 On that note, feel free to ask me any nagging questions you might have to give me something to blog about.
The family went on a lovely weekend getaway to Cambria (central California coast). We pretty much have been going yearly for ten years or so, but it was our first time with S. We all had a great time! We stopped in to see our friends in Santa Barbara on our way up for lunch on Friday and baby had fun playing with our friends’ sweet little guy, who is 9 months older than S.
At lunch, S really got into the food! I ordered a pesto pasta and veggies dish (all organic) and he could not get enough of it. Seriously. It was the first time he’s shown such an interest in food. That trend continued during our trip, and we discovered that baby loves salmon! We have officially graduated to having dinner with baby and sharing our meal with him. I love it! We are in need of some new recipes as we have very few that we make now and some are not baby friendly, so if .you have them, please post!
In Cambria, we took baby to the beach, where he was much more interested in the seabirds than the ocean. We Ergoed him and strolled around the adorable little town. Everyone was besotted with baby. The place we stayed has really pretty gardens so we walked him all over and let him crawl around in the nice grassy area.
At night, he went down like a champ in the Pack N Play and then joined us in bed when he awoke after we went to sleep. The trip also seemed to have an added benefit – baby’s sleep schedule has shifted out!!!! He slept most of the ride up, so he didn’t go to bed on Friday until around 7:30PM. He was up for the day at 5:45AM! Sure as hell beats 4:00AM! We made sure he got good naps back at the hotel Saturday, and he stayed up until 7PM. Sunday he slept until 5:15AM. We have continued this trend back at home (today he slept until 5:30AM). Yay! I sure hope this continues and that we are able to keep moving him out come the end of daylight savings time…
On our way home, we stopped in Solvang, an adorable little Danish town known for its wine tasting. We are not wine fans, but we love the year-round Christmas store they have there!
A good time was had by all 🙂 We are thrilled that baby seems to love to travel and do new things!
Today S is 10 months old! The last month has been both super fun and crazy difficult. He is a very happy baby who laughs all the time. He loves to jump in his crib, on the bed, in the Pack N Play, on the couch, you get the picture. We’ve given him more solids to try including pasta, steamed carrots and broccoli, and various cut up fruit. He enjoys playing at Gymboree during their free play times. The child loves to talk. He babbles constantly – I think he gets that from his Mama (me). He loves to roughhouse with Mommy.
The difficult? Sleep. We have transitioned to being a co-sleeping family as it is really the only way to get any amount of decent sleep with baby. We put him down for the night in his crib and when he wakes after we get into bed, he comes in with us. The night starts off with us staring at our beautiful little guy all tucked in between us sleeping. Wonderful. Somewhere around 12-1AM, he starts in with crazy tossing and turning and that generally lasts off and on for a couple of hours with some nursing going on in between as well. He is up for the day usually between 4-4:30AM. We are trying to push his schedule out so that he goes down for the night at 7PM, but we are currently stuck at 6-6:30PM. Our mantra? This, too, shall pass.
We love our little guy more than I could imagine and are so excited to watch him grow.
