The past 31 days have been the best yet- something I'm sure to say every month until...well, a long time. We've finally got naps down to schedule (two a day, each about 1.5-2 hours long), he's eating great, and he sleeps at night without waking us up. Someone pinch me.
August continues to be a pretty happy kid, and I just love getting to spend my days with him. We have a wonderful group of mama and baby friends, some older and some younger, and we have play dates nearly every week day. Although he's not really playing with other kids yet, he likes being in a group of babies and is pretty well-behaved with them. Playgrounds have become a favorite, and he really enjoys climbing up and down the stairs, and pulling himself up on the bottom of slides.
We're still nursing a bit, but it's really declining. I'll spend this month weaning him, and my goal is to have him on cow's or soy milk by his birthday. You've got a dedicated post on breastfeeding coming up in the next month or two, where I'll wrap up my experience and lessons learned. It's been great, but I'm really looking forward to having my body back!
I can't believe that I've been August's mama for almost one year! I'm soaking up this baby period while I still can. Can you blame me?
