I can not believe it has been this long since I wrote a Watch Willow Grow update. The last one I shared was her 1 year 21 week update on January 15th…. which means I have missed 9 weeks! Somehow I missed one week and that turned in to two and now she is 19 months old. After seeing a few comments on Instagram and Facebook posts asking where the Willow updates had gone I decided I needed to catch everyone up. And so here are some pictures from the last 2 months.
WHAT WILLOW’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE…
Sleeping: Little Willow Jean still isn’t sleeping through the night. She wakes up usually around 3am to nurse and I just bring her to bed with me for the rest of the night. I really would love to get a full nights sleep. Maybe someday, haha.
Eating: She loves everything. Some of her favorites are watermelon, grapes, pasta, and chicken. We went to eat at a Mexican restaurant and she was chowing on the salsa. Literally scooping it out of the bowl with her hand and eating it…. ya, she had her own bowl.
Breastfeeding: We are at 19 months and going strong. Willow tends to only want to nurse if I am sitting on the couch and in the early morning and before bed. Oh and of course in the middle of the night. I guess what I am trying to say is if we are out and about she doesn’t want to nurse. So as long as she is busy with something else she doesn’t need to nurse. I have tried to give her milk in a sippy and she takes a few sips and then tosses the cup. I’ve dedicated myself to letting her self wean and quite honestly right now I do not see an end in sight.
Diapers: We’ve been back and forth between our AppleCheeks and disposable diapers. She has had a couple sinus infections that put her on antibiotics so I would use sposies because of the chance of a yeast rash. And then the yeast rash did happen so I was very glad we had been using sposies. At this moment she is on medicine again and so we are in sposies. I will be so so so happy when she is 100% healthy and we can use our AppleCheeks full time.
Current Weight/Height: Willow had her well visit today and she was 21 pounds and 31 inches tall. She also received two vaccinations and only fussed for a few seconds.
Places She’s Been: Ummmm, everywhere. Monster Jam, Castaway Bay, Lake Erie Monsters Hockey Game, Splash Harbor, MommyCon and lots more.
