We had a wayyy earlier morning at the gym than normal but luckily KB also had a wayyy too early wake up to go with it. Usually I’m late because I hate waking her up. This morning she woke up just before my alarm ready to rock. 🙄
She was in such a great mood and played by herself (almost) the whole time I was coaching! Erin freed her from baby jail at the end and homegirl tried to relive the glory days.
I spent the drive home trying to talk and give Kensie toys so she’d stay awake. She had some seriously heavy eyelids as we got inside so she went straight down for her nap. When she woke up, she still wasn’t having it. I laid her down in her playroom and put in Baby Einsteins and she stayed like this for the next 20 minutes.
You do you, KB.
Kensie did lots of standing practice today and even showed Aunt Shell how she unlocks her baby gate through FaceTime. 🤦🏼♀️ Aunt Shell also ordered K a walker (spoiled rotten) so I give it a solid 2 weeks and Kensie will be running around this place on her own.
She was a happy and independent little lady today which made this momma’s life easy.
I was trying to get a photo of her playing SO well all by herself while I coached this afternoon but then she saw Bah Bah (uncle Rob) and it was game over.
Only 4 more sleeps (or lack there of) and sleep training starts! I know she’s “ready”, I just haven’t been. Ready as in she doesn’t need extra food at night and she’s old enough to sleep though the night; but, it’s a bittersweet thing for me. I know that sounds absolutely ridiculous….I need to sleep longer stretches at night for my health – and I know it’s good for K, too. I’m just going to miss the few extra minutes and cuddles I get with her in the middle of the night! The fact that she sleeps in her crib all night now and not in our bed at all is depressing enough for me. Plus, it’s one more sign of independence and this first year is just going way too fast for me!
Can the baby blues come back around a year in? Because I might cry all month when she turns one and I need something to blame it on. 😂🤷🏼♀️
