I want to begin this post with waaaaaa! But instead of crying I will embrace the fact that we have enjoyed Prestyn Reese for 11 months already! Hard to believe she's almost a year! Time is moving so quickly! It's hard to even remember everything that's happened this last month! I'll do my best!
Allergies, colds, sinuses, etc. have been kickin' our booties around here! P can't seem to fight it! Then add teething on top of that! Speaking of teeth...this overachiever got all 4 of her top teeth at the same time! I think 2 bottom are making their way soon. She has a total of 4 teeth. Thankfully she isn't using these to bite me anymore! Ouch!! But she has figured out how she can take bites of food rather than stuff it all in her mouth.
Prestyn pretty much eats everything we eat. Her favorites are: bananas, yogurt, cottage cheese, refried beans, quesedillas, pasta, and Cheeto Puffs!She started getting 1 ounce of Organic Whole Cow's milk to 3 ounces of breastmilk. This week we'll do 2 and 2. This week is my last week of pumping. P only wants to nurse before bed anyway...it's bittersweet...
We still aren't sleeping through the night every night...but I'm ok with that...she's only going to need me like this for a short time. This time is shorter when compared to the rest of her life...so I'm just taking it all in. P wakes up for the day around 6:30. Waking to nurse around 2...sometimes she'll sleep until 5:30, nurse, and go back to sleep.
Prestyn is walking around! She enjoys playing, but really could just walk around & follow us everywhere all day...she doesn't even crawl anymore! She loves to play with her babies, walker, and Little People.
Some of her size 9 month clothes still fit, but she mostly wears 12 month clothes and some 18 month! I started buying bigger so she can wear them longer! She's growing so fast! P is in a size 3 diaper that still smells sweet..haha! TMI?!
P goes to Mrs. Amber's house during the day while Mommy works. She loves it there, but has started crying when I drop her off. :( breaks my heart...at first I used to turn around & give her 1 more hug...but I've learned that I just have to say bye & leave!
She's also moved up in car seats! So she's doing better in being in the car because she's not in the bucket anymore...still not a huge fan of the car though! We'd really like to take a trip this summer so I'm hoping she begins to enjoy the carseat more...that's why we need a DVD player for the car! P loves her some Baby Einstein videos! I don't always like to let her watch TV, but she is so clingy to me right now, and the only way I can get anything done is if I put Baby Einstein on!
When the weather's nice we love going for walks & swinging at the park! Don't tell P, but she's either getting a swing set or a swing for her birthday!
P still loves bath time, but now she thinks it's a game to stand & pretend to sit in the bath tub. She's starting to get better at sitting, but slipping & falling doesn't stop her! Maybe we should start showers with Mommy soon?!
Mommy better quit blogging & start buying stuff for the big 1 year old's party coming soon!!!
