15 Month Pediatrician Visit

I took Nora to the doctor on Friday for her 15 month check up.  Yes, it's almost 16 months.  I didn't realize that I needed a 15mo appt!

She weighed 17lb 14oz (<3 br="">
She was 50% for length and between 25-50% for head circumference.

The doctor we saw was a PITA, but that kind of stuff rolls off of my back now.  I wish people like her weren't spewing misinformation about breastfeeding though.

Nora got two shots, but she did great afterwards - no fever or obvious discomfort.

She is walking, "talking", and understands a lot more lately.  Her favorite things are animals, particularly dogs, but also horses (uh oh!).  She loves to sing and dance.  She is very feisty and does not particularly care for being treated as the 2nd child.  Hahaha!  She wants ALL of the attention. 

Nora loves to give hugs and kisses, too, and absolutely adores Joseph.  She loves to hug him, touch him, and aggravate him!  She races to his room in the morning - well, not anymore!  They are sharing a room!  Not sure if we'll keep it that way but we think it'll work well for now.

Breaking news!

Joseph and Nora are both asleep... In the same room! We moved the crib in there tonight to try it out. So far so good!

We night weaned Nora 2 weeks ago and I'm hopeful that she and Joseph can make each other feel less stressed about night time.

Cross your fingers!

Winter wonderland

Last week-ish we got a bucket load of snow. TJ was out of town, so Nora, Joseph, and I went out to tackle the shoveling. Our neighbors came to help us (I must look really pathetic, lol) and We got it all done before Nora had had enough! So we went and helped our neighbor for about 5 minutes until Nora turned into a little Popsicle. So fun!

Night weaning

To me, night weaning really signifies when my babies turn into toddlers. We started a long process with Joseph around this age (15 mos) and we felt it was the right time for Nora, too. We're handling things a little differently this time, though, and I have to say that the results so far have been amazing!

Phase 1: I moved in with Joseph at night this weekend. T.J. Still has Nora in our room. I nurse her before bed, give her to T.J. and don't look back! The first night she was up about 3 times (on the nice end of normal for her) and at 6am I went in because I was a leaky mess and needed relief! The second night she fussed while TJ was trying to brush his teeth and iron, but settled right down next to him and went to sleep! She woke up once, and I went in at 5:30. Tonight, no tears at all! Cannot even believe it. I'm so glad we waited until she was this age, she clearly understands and is able to cope just fine!

Phase 2: will be moving nap time to her crib in her room. Not gonna lie, I am dreading this.

Phase 3: daddy puts her to bed in her crib... Mom and Dad sleep all night. ;)
