I cannot believe it has been almost 2 months since my last post.  (Hangs head in shame.)

All I can say is, life happens.  Let’s see if I can do some catching up.  I am so behind on my weekly challenges.  I will catch up, even if it means I will need to do 3 in one week. 🙂

Little guy is doing well.  We had his 15 month check up back at the beginning of April and he is doing well!  He was 33 inches long and 26lbs 10oz.  He was in the 98th percentile for height and 90th percentile for weight.  Poor guy got 2 shots, one in each leg, but 2 nurses came in and they did them at the same time so he did not have to get stuck and then stuck again.  I was glad about that.  He did cry but as soon as I picked him up he was ok.  Such a brave boy.  We go back for his 18 month check in July.

He is walking now and really starting to babble.  He is such a happy guy, but does get fussy now and then like most toddlers do.  We were still having sleep issues and talked to the doctor and he suggested that we do cry it out in the middle of the night.  He had started waking up 2-3 times at night and it was getting really tough for me to get up with him and nurse him back to sleep.  So that evening we did CIO when he woke up around midnight and he cried for almost an hour (I cried a little too) but then he slept great.  The next 2 nights he woke up and cried for just about 5 minutes.  Now he sleeps through the night from about 7:30-8pm to around 7:30am.  It is so great!

We just started transitioning him to one nap from 2.  He had been doing 2 naps really well, but then he started not doing the afternoon nap or doing really short naps, so about 10 days ago I just started with the one nap a bit after lunch.  It varies from 1 to 1.5 hours.  My goal is to get him to take at least a 2 hour nap so I can have some time to get some things done around the house.  We will see if he cooperates.  The other day he only did 30 minutes, so we are still working on it.

All in all things are going well.  With him being more mobile he is taking more of my time now, which is ok with me!  He also plays well by himself for a bit so I can get some things done here and there.

I also finally got around (in April) to heading out the library to sign myself up for a library card so I can sign up for the story time they have for babies.  But wouldn’t you know it the program was in its last week!  It starts up again in June.   I think he will enjoy that.

My little felt ornament side business is doing well.  That has also kept me away from here for a bit catching up on special orders.  I have so many ideas for ornaments in my head that I need a solid week to just make the patterns and the ornaments so I can list them in my shop (but that won’t happen).  I was able to get a couple of patterns made and now I just need to find some time to make the ornaments to post.    If you haven’t checked it out, please stop by:  https://www.etsy.com/shop/FeltNostalgic/

Well, that is about all I have for today.  Gonna try to get back to my weekly challenge.   I actually have 2 that I did, but have not had time to post about yet.  Look for those to come.

 

Thanks for reading!
