Wow. I guess I am one of them. One of those people who finally has a baby and then drops off the blogging earth. I am ashamed. However, life has been busy!
My baby girl is now 13 months old. Over a year has gone by and I can honestly say I am still falling in love with this wonderful miracle. She is my everything. She is walking and using sign language to communicate. Life is simply amazing.
Working and being a momma has been tough. 2 weeks ago H and I came down with the stomach flu that kept us both up all night puking. She then became dehydrated and needed to go to the hospital for rehydrating. Then she had a double ear infection. This all occurred while I was working and still feeling crummy myself. We have an AMAZING sitter and we were blessed we could still send H when she wasn't feeling herself. Working and having a sick baby is the hardest thing in the world. I am not sure how mommas find the balance...but I will try. I need to put my family first and not worry so much about my students or what my administration will say. This is a new year's resolution of mine.
We are still very much AP parents. Still bed-sharing, nursing on demand and loving every minute of it. I would LOVE to get more sleep at night...however I know that she wont be this needy for ever and I will one day miss on the night cuddles. She will tell me when she is ready to move on. We saw some pretty amazing progress, and then she got sick and has regressed. However now that she is eating more again, I am hopeful that her sleeping will turn around.
I have so many posts I want to write about. I also resolve to spend more time doing things I enjoy - such as writing - in the New Year.
Wishing everyone who still cares enough to read this post, a wonderful holiday! Here's a recent pic of my peanut! Love her so much!
