Last night was also a big night. Sadie's ten nighttime feedings a night finally pushed me over the edge and I announced yesterday that we are night weaning. It wasn't something I had planned on doing until I completely weaned her at 24 months, but since I'll be having a baby when she's 24 months old things are changing a bit. I didn't want her associating the baby with weaning (I think that could be a disaster). I was hoping she would stop on her own (as lots of people have told me is apt to happen when a nursing mom is pregnant). Knowing Sadie as I do though, that just isn't going to happen.
It was not the disaster I thought it would be. Glowy the Glow Worm was a huge help. And Sadie seemed to sleep better since she didn't fall asleep nursing. I'm hoping that this trend holds and that I start getting to sleep through the night before long. It would be nice to have a few months of sleep before I'm up again with the new little one! And that's my real Christmas wish!
Today's Daily Dose of Sadie Cuteness is a reminder of summer! It's actually been above freezing these last few days so we've been able to go on a few, very muddy walks. Puddle stomping pictures to come!
