We were busy these past four days – lots of firsts!

A set of cubes was his Christmas present from his aunt. Two weeks later he figured out how to stack them – and I didn’t spend all that much time showing him how!

I am weaning him off of nighttime nursing. It’s part of the whole ready-for-daycare transition. He needs to have one nap a day, he needs to get up earlier (no more sleeping in until 8:30-9:00… *sigh*) – and to have restful sleep, both of us need to sleep all the way through the night. At 11 months he definitely doesn’t need this nursing session. He wants cuddling, not milk. And as much I actually came to like this nighttime cuddling, this needs to stop in order for both of us to be able to get up at 7 am.
Boy, were the first two nights hard… this picture was taken during his nap after the worst night EVER – he woke up every 2 hours, all night long. I prayed for a longer nap, exhausted.
The following night he slept all the way till 7 am. Today (2 days after this nap) he woke up at the usual 5 am for the nursing, but went back to sleep with the pacifier. I think soon this nursing session will be a thing in the past. I feel sad.
But the morning and evening ones remain.

Picaboo! Timothy learned to play picaboo. He hasn’t mastered the covering of his eyes yet – but he totally gets the concept. I say: “Timothy, picaboo!” – and he covers his eyes and then uncovers them, to my cheering, smiling proudly. He even went as far as covering my eyes, too – all in one day! Only yesterday he had no clue how to play picaboo…

After MONTHS of nesting the buckets, Timothy all of a sudden figured out how to stack them! Yay! And he spent about 20 minutes mastering the skill, clapping and smiling proudly. And thoroughly enjoying the pyramid-destruction part 🙂
The most awesome thing about it is that the packaging for the buckets said 12+ months. Timothy isn’t 12 months yet – but he figured out how they work. I am one proud momma 🙂
