If you want to refresh your memory from 14 months, here it is. I left off talking about his snuggles, and really he is still like that. He has separation anxiety in such a big way. It started when he was around a year, but it has gotten worse over the last few months. What makes it really bad is he mostly wants me. Even K isn’t enough to appease him sometimes. I think part of it is he sees me as his food source (he doesn’t like to eat much for other people) and his source for sleep, so if he is hungry or tired, he wants to come to me. He also wants to come over to me to check on me and make sure I’m still around and okay. So, all of this to say that he is still quite attached. I’m not worried, though, since I remember the Fudgelet was also quite attached and he has no problem being dropped at school; sometimes, he won’t even say goodbye until I remind him!
So, I thought I was only going to update every 6 months or so now but then I remembered doing every 2 months for a bit with the Fudgelet so I might do that at least for now. I thought of it because I was thinking about all of the advances he has made since I last posted about him…and yet I didn’t get to share it. But now I can! It was fun reading back over the Fudgelet’s post too.
So, here we are! We made it to one year. Knowing that there is a lot going on this month, I can pretty much guarantee the Chiplet’s one year pictures will have to be shared in an upcoming post instead, but I still wanted to post about this milestone. I finally have two kids who aren’t “babies” even though they kind of still are.
So, in Chiplet news, there has been some great news and much progress! I am getting a little anxious trying to plan for his birthday. I’m trying to figure out what kind of party I will do since I want to do something…but it is tricky since many of our friends have a lot going on this time of year. So, we shall see…but let me update you on what he has been doing.
Let me start by saying I spent much of this last month feeling anxious about the Chiplet. I know every kid is different but it is hard not to compare the brothers, or even with the milestones you see online. But, thankfully, I am feeling a bit better about things and the Chiplet is exactly the same level of happy that he has been his whole life.
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!
