|Playing at ECFE open gym on his actual birthday|
As of his first birthday, he was nursing four times a day and if he woke at night (once, sometimes twice, but quickly so whatever). Since then, I have eliminated two of those day time nursing sessions, so it's just morning and bedtime and if he wakes at night, which he's been doing less. Bonus: he is less distracted these days. I can actually nurse him while sitting down and sometimes I can do it with other chaos going on. For so long, I'd have to pace around and even then sometimes he would get distracted. Now it doesn't even really matter since I don't nurse throughout the day anymore.
Niko loves to crawl and pull up on stuff. He has stood independently for a few seconds a handful of times. Six teeth have poked through, minimal drama there. He says "mama" and "dada" for us, on top of lots of other babbling. He loves to hear his own echo ("AH! AH!") Today he seemed to be saying "ba ba ba" for book. Speaking of books, his favorite thing to do is pull all the books off the bookshelf over and over. He's very tolerant of Myra holding him, burping him, and a variety of other things he outgrew a while ago that she still enjoys doing. Sometimes he even enjoys it, too.
Saying Mama then thinking he's pretty funny.
