Seriously, though. My kiddo is no longer a baby and instead is big, strapping, 30lb 2 year old! How did that happen?? And how did I let almost a year go by without updating this thing? Oh, that’s right…life with a toddler is, well, BUSY.
It’s fun and crazy and out of control most of the time, but busy is definitely the word to describe life. I’m still working part time and staying home with M the rest of the time. He still doesn’t going to daycare, although I am already looking around at preschools, even though it will be at least another year and a half before he attends. He is growing up into a pretty amazing little dude though.
He is incredibly smart and mischievous and stubborn to a fault. He figures things out that I would never even expect him to, he is definitely a thinker. He is behind on his speech, but excels everywhere else. We have a meeting with the speech therapist next Tuesday to evaluate him and determine if he needs to begin speech therapy. He has excellent understanding and communicates in his own way, so I’m hoping he is being stubborn verbalizing and will pick it up pretty quickly. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t worried, but I’m trying to wait until his appointment to get worked up about anything.
We just got over a cold/flu epidemic at my house and then last week our first ever experience with a toddler with the stomach bug. Boy, was that NOT fun!!!
Any plans for more babies? Maybe. I’m getting the fever. I don’t want another winter baby right around Christmas though, so it will probably be this summer before we would start trying again. I’d also like to lose a little weight before getting pregnant again… I gained all my baby weight back after going back to work and I absolutely hate myself for it!
I’m scared to start trying again. I don’t want to go through the infertility thing again. But its been a year since I had a period on my own, so I know it’ll be back to the old grind of meds and shots and scheduled sex. And heartache and disappointment. So. Much. Fun. I’m also terrified of being pregnant while also having a toddler. And of having a newborn while also having a toddler. Both things were difficult the first time around WITHOUT a toddler lol! But I guess women do it every day. I’m sure I’ll be back here more often if and when we do start TTC again. Although I may move to another blog, I’m not sure. I’d like to start a blog I can share with my friends and family, and there is just too much here that I cannot share with them. Who knows.
Ok, I’m cutting it off here because it naptime and I’m on borrowed time haha! Sorry its been so long. I don’t even know who all would even still be reading this! I’ll leave you with a couple of updated pictures of my big boy. Hopefully I will be back soon 😉
