We are now down to one nap per day. Not the smoothest transition we’ve ever made. Some days she sails right through the morning like a champ. Other times we hit a few snags and the sounds of her whining are too much to take. So even though she had weaned herself off daytime feedings we’ve begun sneaking in a snuggle and a snack when things get nutty. I’m applying it to napping/nursing here, but generally this just gets filed under the strategy of ‘path of least resistance.’ My favorite path of all.
It took our neighbor Towa a few minutes to warm up to our girl, but once he did they bonded over the physics of this particular bouncy ball. I’m told there is an age when I will have to discourage her from hanging on the stoop with boys. But we’re not there quite yet.
This child will wear my sling and try to carry around any and all babies/bears/dogs/slippers that she can shove inside the mesh. This has prompted me to decide that I will have another child when this one can safely carry the new baby around herself. Around 2020 I’m guessing.
While I had the nerve to try and blow dry my hair, my child found the flour and the tactile experience led her into a frenzy. Despite my initial negative reaction, I decided to simply take the bag from her to salvage the situation a little and then let her play with what was already on the floor until she lost interest. See the aforementioned ‘path of least resistance.’
