General Baby Thoughts
I think this month it’s finally hit me just how fast our girl is growing up. In less than a month, we’ll be celebrating her first birthday! I’ve been having so many flashbacks of this time last year when I was waddling everywhere and frantically preparing for the arrival of our baby. Boy, have our lives changed since then! Baby Girl brings so much life into our home. Currently, she loves clapping, shaking her head “No,” and trying to tickle her dad.
In an effort to keep things real, I have to confess that up until a couple of weeks ago, I was still nursing her one or two times during the night. But since she’ll start drinking cow’s milk come January, we decided it was high time she sleep through the night without feeding. And so with a few days of sleep training, our girl is now sleeping eleven or twelve hours without waking up. I know we’re late to the game, but better late than never, right? She’s happier during the day, and so are we!
Financial Baby Thoughts
In the past month, we haven’t had any expenses out of the ordinary with Baby Girl. Aside from diapering ($40) and feeding ($40), we haven’t spent any other money. Of course, this is partly due to the fact that we have a Christmas budget to spend on her. We’ve used that to buy her some more clothing and some toys — she can only play with measuring cups for so long! We’ll be detailing how much money we budgeted on her Christmas this year and how we spent it, very soon.
Our baby finances only came to $80 this month! Hallelujah! I think this calls for a few extra pictures of Baby Girl at eleven months, if you’ll indulge me 🙂
