We did it! We flew with two kids and made it. I wasn’t ready to celebrate until we had landed back home since the flight home is actually longer than the flight to Maryland.
Let’s start with a brief reminder of why the Fudgelet is named the Fudgelet…
Halfway to becoming a toddler–wow! He has made some big jumps over this last month with his development. It’s so exciting to see. Keep reading if you want to hear more!
Another month has gone by! The Chiplet is once again throwing curveballs at us but yet reminding us of the baby Fudgelet, too. I am really trying to appreciate all of the baby snuggles since I feel a bit more relaxed about taking care of a baby this go-round. Comparing the two of them is fun, but they are definitely their own people.
I can’t believe I just typed that title! Someone asked me at the store how old he was, and I had to say it then, too. He is getting so big and so aware of everything. We finally can drive places (if it isn’t nap time) and not just have him fall asleep. That might sound crazy, but since he does a decent job napping in his bed, we’d rather he stick to his routine and not have random car naps to throw off his groove. Of course, his awake times are still rather short, so if we go out, there is usually a car nap involved anyway. But, I try to save those for his shorter naps of the day so that we just keep him in his car seat for a bit after we come inside, and I usually have to wake him to eat at a certain time anyway.
I am writing this after a pleasant day with both the Fudgelet and the Chiplet. It has been a rough week. The Chiplet randomly went from doing awesome naps like clockwork to short naps and being cranky about it too. So much screaming and crying from the three of us. And then poor K got to come home each day when we were all exhausted and cranky. So, I don’t know if he just had a rough patch and today is back to normal, or if today was a gift and the “rough patch” is the new normal. Either way, with how fast time is flying, all of the baby sleep problems will be over before I know it.
We are in the stage of baby-time when I have lots of recipes I want to make but not much time to make them since the baby is a bit picky with his sleep. So, read ahead to see some food I would like to make as well as some pictures of my two non-napping sons.
