This weekend is my birthday, and I mentioned to chris that I deserve a "thoughtful" birthday gift. He was trying to think of some thoughtful things last night, and I reminded him that it doesnt have to be a "thing" or a gift in the traditional way. So I suggested that he thinks hard and put some thoughtfulness into this. He did come up with one "thoughtful" idea- clipping my toenails for me. I told him good idea, now work with it... keep going.... I'll keep you posted on what he comes up with! (really, clipping my toe nails is thoughtful. He realizes that it is getting difficult for me to do.)
We are making it official and announcing that at 21 months we are 100% bottle free! Brady just quite asking for it about a week ago and hasnt asked for it since. woohoo! now we are working on establishing a new night time routine to help him settle down before bed time. Falling asleep has been taking him 30-45 minutes because he just hasnt settled down. My hopes are getting his father on board in the new nighttime routines, since chances are this will become a daddy thing when baby #2 comes home.
