Since Charlie is now 2 there is really no reason in counting the months anymore, but I didn't want to stop the blog posts I do of him every month. I look forward to doing these and even more excited to look back on them. It makes me remember who he was at that time. Sometimes it gives me the encouragement that I need knowing that the rough times do pass and the good times just keep living on. So I am continuing my posts about him, but just as A Month with Charlie. This has been an extremely hard month. Business wise we have had to pull MANY all nighters which left us so tired and sick. Thank goodness during that week we had to do so, Charlie was a master sleeper through the night with no nightmares or anything...BUT he would wake up a 6am. Jake and I are still trying to recover from the lack of sleep.
This month: - He is loving being an early riser. Some mornings it is 6am and others it is a beautiful 8 am. - He has been testing his limits and a little more temperamental, but I know that is just his "terrible twos" - We have really been implementing time out, but take it more of a "cool off" time to give him a few minutes to reset from the mood he is in. - We are still trying to get him to be potty trained. He loves his little race car potty but still doesn't run to it when he has to go. - He will say "yes" to anything even if he has no idea what we are asking. - He has been using his words so much more now. - The month of May has been full of sicknesses and sleepless nights. I don't know why we all just keep getting sick over and over again. Thank goodness we take our vitamins, it probably would be worse! - Everything has been "mommy. mommy, mommy" lately. It feels so great to be needed and loved so much, but it makes it so very hard when you are 7.5 months pregnant and can't hold a 25 pound toddler!
