Introducing ... Big Kid!



Ah, my little girl grows less little by the moment. So astonishing to watch; never has there been a more fascinating show (to us). Her new, excited proclamations of "Oh! I yike dat!" are the best best best. She yikes yots of things :-) 

This New York trip was the first time I've left her, and I was full of anxiety, but she and Jim did beautifully. New sleep routines were established, and ... I might cry ... weaning has been accomplished. *sob sob* It's a new phase. My baby isn't a baby anymore. Two nights of the past three she has slept all night, with only a brief wake-up to ask for milk (the cow kind). Don't get me wrong, she slept well pre-weaning, but I had the easy remedy going, the almighty boob. The transition has been easier than I expected.

*knocks wood*

And now, to work with me, to the Big Scene that I have been courting for a couple of days. It's the idea that, when I was daydreaming up this book, went BAM! in my head and I knew I had a story. Now to bring it to life. Off I go ...

Happy day!

She is so sweet! When I was her age, I needed yots and yots of yove (doesn't everyone?)

I hope your Big Scene goes well!

I can't believe it. Seems like yesterday you were preggers.

:)

Aww, weaning and words do suddenly make little ones seem so grown up so quickly! And hopefully the former explains some of your pain the other day. ;)

Time flies, no? I yike yooking at it through your eyes. Oh, Clementine Pie. She's the cutest.

Oh. Put that photo of Clementine next to the new one of Magnus on my blog. So cool! Those kids should meet!

As in:

Clementine: I found an old cd that my Dad used to listen to. The Arcade Fire. They're really good.

Magnus: That's so cool! My dad never bought any cds. He just kept his stuff on the computer, and that's all gone now, after the Apple Plague.

Clementine: You can come over and listen to mine, if you like. Mom made aebleskiver last night. They're not as good today, but they're okay.

Magnus: Haha. Aebleskiver. That's old school.

Clementine. I know! But she's sweet.

Her little face always makes me smile. So sweet!

That little girl is way too cute! I just had my first child in February and I rue the day my son is this big! Sadness. :(

That headband is beautiful-- almost as beautiful as Clementine.

Laini, as a reader, I already love your books. And now I find out you're a breastfeeding mama, too! I nursed my babies to 14 months and 20 months. My daughter is three now, and she still loves the "Mommy Chessie." So, don't feel too sad. Maybe Clementine will still take comfort from the "almighty boob" even when she's bigger.
