Life update

Ooooh bad me I haven't blogged all week! It's been busy here and I've worked some extra shifts so no time to sit at the computer! It's a good thing I suppose!

What's new with us??

The biggest news is that I night-weaned Aiden on the 12th (Mothers day). I was exhausted, grumpy, stressed, frazzled and taking most of my frustrations out on Yoshi, so I just decided; I wouldn't offer Aiden any more milk!

The first few nights were rough as nursing was the quick fix to soothe him back to sleep when he woke, but he soon realized that hugs and songs were all he was going to get, and is now sleeping longer stretches than before!!!!! It isn't all night but it is a vast improvement! Yippee :)

Aiden is walking 100% of the time now (no crawling at all) and his balance and coordination is much improved! He especially likes walking with his daddy ...

In other news, I didn't get any pressies for Mothers Day (boo) but Aiden slept 5 hours in a row, the longest he has EVER slept... the longest we have both slept in 13 months! It was a good day :)

I did buy myself a wee present (to celebrate my second Mothers Day and the end of Aiden and my nursing relationship)... It is a small initial necklace (A for Aiden) that I bought here, on Etsy.

Hope you guys are all good!!
