So, it’s been a couple of days. I’m getting engorged. And it’s really uncomfortable. I can’t put pressure on my boobs. So, I have to be careful when I carry Babs.
Other than me feeling uncomfortable with full breasts, weaning has been going well. Babs has only been waking up once at night. And he will usually go right back to sleep after a couple of minutes. He’ll still try to climb on me sometimes, when he wakes up, but dad will usually take him and he’ll be ok after a couple of minutes.
And he’s doing well during naptime, too. He can just fall asleep without nursing. I’m kinda excited about not nursing anymore. But at the same time I’m sad. It’s like he doesn’t need me anymore. :'( Waaaah! He’s growing up so fast. *sigh*
He’s been drinking so much milk, too. I’m surprised he’s still 20lbs. He’s been stuck at 20lbs for the last 3 months. But he seems like he’s getting a bit pudgy, though. His tummy has been bulging out of his shirts. So cute!
That reminds me…I need to go through his clothes and pack up the old ones.
We’ve been saying “Please?” everytime Babs asks for something. We’ll say “You want this? Say, ‘please, mommy?'” And when we give him whatever it is, we say “Thank you!”
So, Babs learned to say “Thank you.” But he says it when he asks for something. Silly, Babs! The other day, he was asking for whatever I was eating and he goes “Tankoo?” And he holds his hand out. I’m not sure how to teach him to say please first and then thank you. But it’s too cute. Haha.
So, an update on Babs:
He’s super mobile. He loves to walk around and explore everything. He’s starting to talk a lot, too. He’ll say bye to people. He’s starting to expand his vocabulary. He’s getting friendlier and less shy. But it does take a while for him to warm up to you. Unless you’re a cute girl. He’ll flirt with you if you’re a pretty girl. He’ll smile at you and laugh and wave. So cute. I can’t.
Bubs just started 1st grade today. I can’t even wrap my head around that. He’s in 1st grade, guys! Aaah! His teacher from kindergarten moved to 1st grade. So, he has the same teacher from last year. So, it’s not too bad of a change for him this year. There are 3 teachers in the 1st grade and they all rotate for math, reading, and writing, I think, so he’ll actually have each teacher at some point during the day.
So, we’re slowly starting to get back into the grind. When we dropped off Bubs, Babs was kinda confused. He was like, “Goh-goh?” (I guess that’s like Kuya in Chinese.) And was looking at Bubs’ seat. He was asking me where his Kuya is. He’s gonna have to get used to not having his Kuya around all day.
I hope that the school year goes by without a lot of problems with Bubs.
