Fun – Earth Day;

Standard

 For Earth Day, Evelyn I took a bike ride up to a nearby park where they had a Ladybug Release Event.

It was Evelyn’s first time seeing Ladybugs, and she had a great time!

They were crawling all over her, and she was so intrigued!

We then finished our bike ride up the Mountain to the top of Las Sendas. The hard trek is always worth the view!

Skill – Learning to Nap (Without Milk)

If you remember ~the good ole days~ and making a wish at 11:11, find no coincidence in my wish come true today!

Small victories with a baby tend to leave a warm-hearted Mother.

We’ve been trying to break Evelyn of her milk before naps, and milk before bed habit. She falls asleep on my breast, and passes out like a champ! However, it can make someone else trying to put her to bed extremely difficult. So, for about a month now, we’ve been trying a combination of Baby Wise and our own old methods.

It’s so easy to “give in” to someone so beautiful and precious, especially it being my firstborn. However, her dependence on breastmilk before bed could lead to problems later. We recognize this, we do.

Anywho, I’ve found that keeping a routine (or as closely as possible) has been the best course of action for my Daughter, and for myself!

If you take anything away from reading my blog, I hope that you find persistence and consistency is best. Don’t give up! However, listen to your baby. Really listen.

Thanks for reading,
