Guess who turns 1 today?
I can't believe it's been a year, but then again I kind of can-chaos pure chaos this last year. I love this kid! He is such a silly monkey.
What I remember the most though...
When he came out I latched him on only to not be able to nurse him 2 days later. I had sore and painful, bleeding nips that caused me to go exclusively to pumping. This was devastating to me. But I persevered and got him latched on at 2 months and kicked the pump to the curb! Baby J though didn't give momma much of a break with screaming 3-4 hours a day, every day. We cosleeped with him, something I said I'd never do-my how things change! At exactly 7 months I reluctantly stopped nursing and he amazingly stopped crying. He became a happy baby, not sure entirely of all the reasons. And he started sleeping 10-12 hours a night.
Unlike my other babes he started crawling at 8 months and barrels through life pushing his way through. I swear he is as strong as my 2 year old! I'm excited for this year as he begins to walk and talk and interact more with the other babes.
Oh how I love Baby J. He smooshes his nose into my cheek to cuddle and he does this funny snorting thing when he's being silly. It is usually accompanied by him sitting cross legged on the floor and bouncing forward-such a goof!
Happy Birthday my 3rd babe I love you!
