~Eliana is 29 months old~
We have been taking some time just "being." We have been enjoying the warmer weather. Elli has enjoyed playing in the kiddie pool, trips to the park, bike rides, a trip to the fountain (I enjoyed this more than her ~ she was a little afraid of the big fountains). We have read book after book after book and have done lots of cuddling over the last couple weeks. I am trying to wean her - I am ready now, even if she is my last. I'm not sure child-led weaning is for me - this girl is not showing signs of weaning herself AT ALL so it has not been easy. Mommy decides when and if she nurses and I am limiting it to once in the morning, when she wakes from a nap, and before bed. I say "no" to her many times a day, so I think this is a good compromise - for now.
We planted our garden late this year and she helped me plant some carrot seeds in our garden.
I really hope they grow so she can see how her seeds grew into carrots. We covered them with hay to keep the cats out and the watering down.
Over the last couple weeks, Elli's free time play has really blossomed. She is using her imagination and playing with her brother more and more.
It was nice to take a break, but I am ready to get back into a schedule and do some more planned activities.
