With August here we have lots of August 2012 babies celebrating their 1st birthday. We'd love to see pics and get an update from everyone! Please say hello, post a pic if you can, and tell us how your little one and you are doing!
The Happy Birth Day Thread!
This is my almost one year old. She was an accidental homebirth, and about 3 minutes away from being an unassisted homebirth. She had a brief stay in the NICU related to respiratory issues resulting from the extremely precipitous birth (0 active labor, just transition and pushing 35 minutes or so). Fortunately everything was fine and she is healthy and happy. Just started walking over the last 2 weeks. I would estimate 25lbs or so. We cosleep and mostly nurse just at night since I work full time. Definitely going too fast!
My Daughter Lyla was born on the 28th, she has been such a blessing and is such a sweetheart cuddle bug. She still loves to nurse and snuggle on me, she has been walking for about a month now, which is crazy. She is into everything, loves to climb on furniture, dance, read books, and she loves to swim and be in the water.
Lots of well wishes to all of you from Northern California.
Here's a picture of my baby girl. She just turned one on the 14th of this month and she's definitely a handful. She got glasses when she was 9 months old, which just gave her the confidence she needed to start moving. She's been walking since about 11 months and is always getting into everything (thanks to her newfound vision!). She also loves snuggling, nursing, looking at animals, reading books and chasing her four-year-old brother around. We're definitely doing great over here!
I want to invite all of you to join our latest group One Year Olds! We'll be inviting everyone in the Mothering community with a one year old to join the group and plan to have some really interesting discussions and some game threads giveaways. So please do join the group and introduce yourself and your little one!
Piper is one year old and absolutely fabulous! I love her so much. I'll post some pics in the One Year Olds, assuming it's a closed group. I think it is?
At any rate, Piper is cruising around (no walking yet), babbling up a storm, laughing a lot and generally loving life. She continues to be the happiest baby and I am just so lucky to have her as a daughter. We've started sort of weaning in that my supply is dropping and she's drinking more regular milk, but she still nurses 4-6 times a day. She's sleeping through the night, thank goodness, and is still napping 2x a day, though that might change soon.
She's just a funny little goofball and such a joy to be around. Can't wait to hear other updates from mamas I may have missed!
