Ava is talking!!
She just exploded this week. She said Madeline (Mala), Mommy, Daddy, and "Hi Baby!" which I thinks she assumes is just a generic greeting since it is the first thing everyone says when she walks in the rrom. It must be nice to be the baby of the family.
And she walked!! My dh came hjome from a week and a half long business trip and said "I bet she is so excited to see that she will walk to me" I made fun of him a little assured him she was no where near walking (she wil not move her feet for anything) and before I was done calling himi a doofus she took three very steady steps toward him and smiled a great big smile much to my chagrin. hasn't done it since but none the less
We are staring night weaning tonight. She has gone from taking great naps and waking once a night as a newborn to waking every hour on the hour and refusing to sleep until I nurse her. Also this is obiously keeping her from napping well. So tonight we are starting. Wish us luck. Dh is on board today. we will see where he is by the end of the week (hopefully we will be done by then.) I have read the no cry sleep solution but I am a pull the bandaid off all at once type of gal. It is going to suck for everyone for about a week (although she will obviously do things for dad that she won't do for me
: ) but I think that is better than dragging it out over months. So anyway, I will keep you posted on how it goes.
Oh my gosh! We are going to start having first birthdays in a couple of weeks. Whose babies are going to be one first?
