Oops, I forgot a pretty big milestone that happened on his birthday … his fifth tooth finally popped out of the gums! He was particularly clingy today – I don’t know if it was the other teeth that are so close to coming through, side effects from the shots yesterday, sympathy for how sick his Nana is feeling, or just not having had a break from me yet this week (by this time each week he’s spent 2 mornings with Petra, but we don’t want to expose her to the bug).
Another great sleep last night, waking up only once at 2:30, but I was able to get him back to sleep without having to nurse him. What a change! He’s gone to bed without nursing for a few nights in a row now. He still nurses to sleep for naps (sometimes – other times he’ll fall asleep in the stroller or car seat). I don’t want to jinx anything, but this is a pleasant change.
