Potty training has officially begun!

Potty training has officially begun! Lila pooped in her little potty for the first time today! happy dance Lila has known for a long time now that “potty” means to sit on her little potty. Recently, I’ve been having her sit on her potty without a diaper on a couple times a day. Normally it doesn’t last longer than a minute. She does, however, always ask for toilet paper so that she can “wipe”! Today,...

Bye bye breastfeeding

Bye bye breastfeeding Well. It’s official. Lila is no longer breastfeeding. Yesterday was the first time she went an entire day without nursing. Lila’s such a little busybody that I’m convinced that she thinks nursing interferes too much with her “plans”. With a sippy cup, she can take drinks in between doing other things. I know I’ve already said this, but I am so glad that I made the...

A year of breastfeeding

A year of breastfeeding I did it! I met my goal to breastfeed Lila for at least one year! Despite our rough start, breastfeeding this past year has gone wonderfully and I am so glad that I stuck with it. Except for the first week when we had to supplement with formula to get Lila up to her birth weight, Lila was exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months – and I mean breastfed. No bottles. On her 6 month birthday, we...

Falling asleep on her own

Falling asleep on her own It all started a couple weeks ago. I got up and fed Lila before heading to work. When I left, Dave joined Lila on the floor of her room and they both fell asleep on the floor. We expected this to be a random fluke, but the next day, I left Lila in her crib (awake) when I went to work. When I came home, Dave told me that she fell back asleep in her crib and had just woken back up. This has been happening...

Lila Pic of the Day #57

Lila Pic of the Day #57 Lila had her first solid food yesterday! Banana! It was a lot of fun and she loved it. Dave fed her while I took pictures and my mom took video.

We’ll be continuing to feed her banana for the next couple days before trying out a veggie If you haven’t already, check out the...

Lila’s first night in her crib

Lila’s first night in her crib Last night was Lila’s first night sleeping in her crib. Until now, she’s been in our room. Quick history on her sleep routine. When she was first born, Lila was strictly in bed with us. Then for the last couple months, we’ve had her start the night in the co-sleeper bassinet that is right up against my side of the bed, and when she wakes up, I bring her to bed so I can nurse her back...
