Eighteen Months

August 4, 2015 No Comments

Kallen is 18 months old! We have a full blown toddler on our hands! I can’t believe how big he is getting and how much he learns everyday.

Here are some things I want to remember about Kallen right now….
Kal weighs 24 ish pounds and is about 30 inches tall (his well check isn’t until the 19th so not positive on these numbers)
Wearing: 12 to 18 and 18 months. Size 5c shoes
Eating: Kallen is an awesome eater! He eats pretty much everything and always is asking for snacks. He loves guacamole, “cookies” (graham crackers), grapes, bananas, apples, chicken, hamburgers, french fries and ice water. He is not a huge fan of green veggies, tomato, and cucumber

Nursing: Kal is still nursing at at bedtime, and sometimes when he wakes up. We had a pretty rough start with nursing, and I didn’t know if I’d ever make it 18 days, much less 18 months. My “goal” was to breastfeed him for 12 months, and I feel so blessed we’ve been able to continue. He is starting to show signs of weaning , so we will see how much longer he wants to nurse
Words: If you know me and Chris, it’s probably no surprise that Kal is quite the talker. He says: Mama, Daddy, Papa, dog, cat, Leo, Bree, Russell, Dal, Kal, baby, ball, cookie, eat, treat, apple, “nanana” (banana), watch, ice, done, Thank You, walk, shoes, Elmo, uh oh, toes, kick, what’s that?, why’d you do that?, and where’d it go? He also signs please, all done, and shakes his head Yes and No. Just this last week he has started repeating things if you ask him to.

Play: Kallen is obsessed with Balls…we have no less than 10 of them and every morning he collects them all. He loves being outside and swinging at the park. We’ve been swimming a few times this summer and he has enjoyed that too. He started climbing this last month, and gives me mini heart attacks all day long. He is VERY busy and does not stop playing and getting into things, unless he is asleep.

Sleep: Kal transitioned to 1 nap right after his 1st birthday. He usually goes down after lunch and will sleep for 1.5 to 3 hours, depending on the day. He still isn’t a great nighttime sleeper, but it’s getting better. We start our bedtime routine (bath, brush teeth, read book, kisses, prayers, and a couple songs) about 8 and he is usually asleep by 830/845. He usually wakes up once around 4 or 5 and gets in our bed and will go back to sleep until 7 or 730

Being the mom of a toddler is exhausting, trying, and an absolute blast. I love spending my days with Kal and love watching him learn and grow. Can’t wait for all the adventures to come!

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
