This, That and Tot Talk: Get Presents

Not much to report on the home front (Prayer in the morning is going fine, so long as Kristiana does not cry half the night like last night.  Maybe she didn't like the coffee I had at 8:30 p.m. last night.  Andrew and I think it's time to begin weaning, which is so bittersweet), BUT enough of that, today is Tot Talk Tuesday...

My father-in-law came for a visit over the weekend.  It is always sad when he has to leave again.  Alexander has become quite attached to him.  They were totally engaged all weekend long.  When Granddad (a.k.a. Gaw-maw, which is what Alexander calls all his grandparents) was saying good-bye, he told Alexander that he loved him and that he would see him at Christmas.  To which Alexander replied,

"Yeah okay.  We go play outside then and get presents. Bye. Love you."  We were all impressed that Alexander remembered what we did last Christmas.

"Where are your sugars?"
Are you kidding? How could he forget something as AWESOME as that?! :D I just love your kids, Renee. Give them a squeeze for me!

Time to wean already? How long did you nurse Alexander?

For me, I feel like I/we just got to a point where nursing is a pleasant experience so I really don't want to wean any time soon. But it's uncharted territory so who knows what could happen? I could get preggers again, or Louisa could self wean....I guess if I've learned anything from this parenthood business its that you should expect the unexpected!

I agree with Kayleen! I wanted to nurse both of my kiddos until 18 months, but Punky weaned when I got pregnant Spunky and then Spunky just completely quite one day at 11 1/2 months. I hope Bunky goes a little bit longer than the other two.
