We have been busy. Work has been vicious for both of us for the last month. AT spent a week in Maryland and we wore out both grandmas with some babysitting. (Though Im sure neither one would complain).
MastaG is doing his teenage things. Not much new news on him. He and his girlfriend celebrate their 2 month-iversary this weekend. He is pretty happy about it.
Pigpen is doing great, too. He has ALMOST mastered bike riding. He can coast amd pedal…and brake. But he cant quite get the bike started with his feet on the pedals from a stopped position. But hes practicing. The boy has motivation. Ive never seen him dedicate himself to something that is so hard. Im proud of him.
WeePT is getting big so fast. She says “dadada,” “maamaa,” “daaa”(dog), “deeooooow”(when you ask her what the kitty says), and a bunch of other babbley things we havent figured out yet.
She is crawling on all 4s and prefers to be pulled up and standing. Yep. She is VERY mobile.
Wee has 3 teeth in…2 bottom and one top. I looooove her toothy little grin. Teething sucks, btw.
And now…we are teaching her how to sleep in her crib. Yeah, I know. Bad habit sleeping with us this whole time…but we opted for getting everyone as much sleep as possible. And now it’s time for her to use her nursery for something other than diaper changes.
We started this past Saturday night. Night 1 was a no go. Screamed bloody murder for an hour. I slept with her on the futon in her room.
Day 2…attempted nap1- nope. Screamed for an hour.
The rest of the day, we played in her room, played with toys in her crib…just kind of hung out in there all day. Bedtime…AT got her in her crib. She slept for an hour. Then she and I crashed on the futon.
Day 3- AT got her to take two 20-30 min naps in her crib. Better than no naps…Ill take it
Last night, bedtime went over ok. She slept for an hour and 15 min.
Day 4- Today, my sweet girl took an hour and 15 min nap in her crib.
I think we are gonna do it! Yep. Baby steps…but it’s better than nothing. I’m proud of my big girl.
Boy, this is going so fast. I love it so much.
Is there a “pause” button?
