I can't believe in less than 2 weeks we'll be celebrating Cupcake's first birthday! I've learned so much and so has she! And I can't believe how big she is (and she's a tiny thing)! We struggled with breastfeeding when Corinne was first born. She wouldn't latch. She never did before we left the hospital and it was a million times worse trying to get her to once my milk came in. It took 8 weeks on shields to teach her how to latch. If you would've asked me back then if she would be exclusively breastfed at 1 year I would have likely thought no. And here I am pumping as I type (daddy put her to bed tonight).
Even before I was pregnant I had decided I was going to cloth diaper. Lots of experienced moms laughed at me. They told me I was crazy and that it was too much work. They asked why I would go through the trouble. They had never cloth diapered their kids so I'm not entirely sure where they got their information, but again, here we are almost a year later still loving the fluffy butt! (Girl needs help keeping her pants up anyway!)
I didn't think she'd be a mover. She couldn't move for 12 weeks since she was in the harness. I thought she'd be behind in rolling, crawling and walking, but turns out she hit all those milestones ahead of the curve.
And who would've thunk she'd be allergic to bananas! '
