i start every post by saying this... but where the heck is the time going? not only is adam 5 months old.... but its october already. wtf? its actually getting cold out now!
things are great in the wannabe household. adam and i are keeping ourselves busy with all kinds of fun stuff. we meet up with other friends regularly for play dates (as much as any 5 month old can play...), we go to classes at the local library and other classes through the local ymca, adam is in swimming lessons now, trips to the zoo so adam can stare in amazement at the animals, and many other things fill out time. i absolutely love being at home with him and am so thankful for the full year maternity leave we get here in canada. i can't imagine being back at work right now. in fact, if we were in a position to afford it right now, i'd just stay home. but alas, the mighty dollar will force me back in may next year. hopefully i'll be knocked up when i get there so i can look forward to another year off with my boy and a new baby. time will tell.
adam is fun. like, i'm talking F.U.N. he is babbling up a storm, grabbing at everything, jumping away in his jumperoo and jolly jumper and laughing much more these days. he's now eating solid foods but only sweet potato and bananas so far. this week will bring peas and apples. he's also tried all the grains as well. and lets just say he's got the same appetite his mommy has. this kid can eat! he's probably close to 20lbs now! we've had to buy a new car seat already since he's so huge.
i'm still breastfeeding but have started the weaning process. before having him, i never gave any thought to weaning, well other than the fact that i was going to have him weaned by 6 months. now that he's here and breastfeeding is so easy for us, i am having a hard time with it. if we weren't feeling like there was a bit of a clock ticking in the background for baby no. 2, i'd continue breastfeeding him until at least 9 months. i'm going to be really sad when i feed him for the last time... but we've got to start preparing for number 2 :)
i've been catching up with you guys and am so happy to hear about Gurlee's pregnancy and Oak's too! so awesome! a few of you are getting closer and closer as well, Adele, Roccie too. lots of good news out there :)
i'd like to say i'll update more... but i've said that before. so how about i'll try? i'm having so much fun being adam's mom that this seems to fall by the wayside. i do check in fairly regularly to see how everyone's doing ... thats got to count for something, right?
