Sometimes he walks through the room hands in the air laughing at himself and his ability to walk :) It's the cutest thing I have seen. like ever.
And he climbs up on the sofa, the stairs and my legs if I don't pick him up. He is so much fun to be around these days especially when he is making silly faces during dinner time or hugs me real tight.
He is a bit more balanced, because this boy (I still can't believe this) is sleeping through the night. People, I feel like a human again and could hug you all. People told me it would come and I didn't believe it. Guess they were right in that and I am so entirely grateful.
We had to go the Cry It Out route and we are still not at the finish line where he falls asleep without a peep. But we will get there. Soon.
So, I am working hard for this class. Brainstorming ideas to decorate our house and trying to cook a healthy meal every day.
This far it all works out good. Some days I want throw a fit. Some days I want someone to care for me, just for one day. Some days I want someone to cook me something lovely, but in real life most of the time I have to do this all for me. I am taking humble steps at self-care and self-appreciation.
The pregnancy, birth and caring for a demanding baby and toddler on my own threw me way off my schedule in self-love. I try hard. I practice hard and some days it is just not enough.
And that's okay because I take every effort I can every single morning. Getting up when I rather lay in bed but I have people to care for, laundry to clean and fold, I have dogs to walk.
I have my hands full and I am trying.
