I guess we've been a bit busy eh?!! With an "almost 2 year old" I'd say that's an understatement. She is my little wild child, always on the go. Currently she's talking up a storm, even putting together 2-3 word phrases and sentences.
Oh and that nasty ear infection? It turned into full on brochospasms... so that was terrible. Olivia was such a trooper, and had to be put on breathing treatments every 4 hours. Poor babe. Seems to be on the mend now, and we're stopping the treatments today.
We can't wait for spring, our driveway and yard are a muddy mess. We get out as much as possible, but with this cold she's had and the temps still in the 30's, we still feel a bit cooped up. We do get to go to Mommy & Me dance class every Monday and have made some friends in our playgroup, which has been a lot of fun for both of us.
Josh is finally back on a day schedule (as of this week!) and I'm hopeful that'll be better for everyone. Olivia seriously misses him, especially when he's at home and has to sleep. Now that she's learned how to open doors I've had to keep her away from that part of the house all day.
Last night was the 3rd or 4th in a row where Olivia had woken up for seemingly no reason and just wanted to chatter and sing, and be a nursie monster. For approximately 2 hours she was counting, pointing out body parts, and then singing Elmo's World... so extremely cute AND exhausting! I'm torn between thinking this could be a developmental thing, she's certainly happy enough while she's awake at night, or it could be related to my trying to wean her during the day. Maybe she's making up for it at night?? Or maybe both?? Either way, I'm going to go back to our old nursing routine (basically on demand, but really only 2-3 times a day... we were down to just nap and bed and I'd try to redirect her any other time she asked).
How much of this blog is me trying to figure this kid out anyway... God help me when she's a teenager, I'll be writing here every day!
