My adorable Wee Two, you are the cuddliest, squishiest, silliest little guy and we love seeing more of your personality emerge day after day. That said, could you please, pretty please, sleep more at night?? (Sigh.) We’re in a huge sleep regression right now and while we’re hopefully near the end of it, The Wee Two’s ability to sleep through the night has gone away this past month. This means more sleep training unfortunately. It all makes sense due to the major cognitive and physical developments that happen around this time, but coupled with teething and winter colds it feels like we might never sleep again- there is always something! And yet we get up each day, we survive, we laugh, and we hug our boys tight, and it’s OK. We are healthy and happy and we know how fast babies grow up.
The biggest excitement is that The Wee Two has officially started crawling and pulling up on everything, especially his brother’s train table and the fireplace which is NOT ideal. This is the most exhausting stage of babyhood in my opinion because they don’t understand what areas are dangerous and their urge to explore is so strong. I’m constantly on the go following The Wee Two but it’s been really fun watching him learn so many new skills.
He’s also looking so old these days, ahhh, where is my baby?? His hair is definitely getting longer and sticking up more (another kid with my crazy hair haha). He’s also starting to say real consonants like “mamamamama,” which of course makes me very happy. And he can nod his head “yes!”
For some reason I have trouble coming up with accomplishments each month because it doesn’t feel like we do much but survive sometimes, haha.
