So I just wanted to share about my little girl. She is coming up on 20 months and everything we have had to do with her has been well easy. She started sleeping through the night at 6 weeks of age, always a happy child. She took to eating solids when we tried her with them, took to her high chair no problem. If she got fussy with the high chair we moved her to a booster seat at the table and no more problems. I have found myself haveing a fight with her because she wants a bath on non bath nights...which I give in and she gets her bath. Seriously..wouldn't you give in too? Argueing with a 20 month old and telling her no to having a bath? How foolish. Anyway, I find my journey with my first child a little nerve racking. When it came to weaning her off the bottle, I was nervous, did it very slowly. Explained in full detail to husband how I wanted to go about it, but when all was said and done, not a single fuss about moving to the sippy cup-again easy. My daughter has always been attached to her nuk. It's a comfort item for her but again, it was time to wean. We've tried random days but she just cries all the time so we gave in and gave it back. Last night was a differnt story. We actually lost her nuk. Not on purpose. We looked and looked but couldn't find it. She was sad, but didn't fuss, went to bed and started the day fresh..again no fuss. Meanwhile I'm awake half the night wondering if she's going to wake up and want her nuk and what do I do to calm her. No fuss. I guess I just make things out to be worse then what they really are. My daughter is a blessing and really making parenthood easy on me. Was/is there something in your journey as a parent that you thought was going to go horribly bad and it was actually a good thing? Thanks for all your stories and I hope you can relate a little to mine.
