It’s Getting Better All the Time
Now that Langdon is almost one, it’s getting a teensy bit easier every day.
I know that in one of my old posts I called all my mommy friends with older babies big ol’ liars when they promised me that one day soon it would get easier. And I know that in my last post I complained about Langdon’s pre toddler temper tantrums. But lo + behold a ray of light.
First things first. The reason for Langdon’s hellish Dementor behavior last week was bad sleep + horrible naps. With the time change + schedules getting out of whack, that guy was pissed off like you wouldn’t believe. Jeff criticizes me for being psychotic about having Langdon home for most naps – but guess what?! When he sleeps well he is a delight!!! Look at him gazing adoringly at his father!!!
Jeff questions me no more.
Langdon is most definitely a character. I try my hardest not to laugh, but lately he is taken to putting food on his head. I don’t know where he gets it from because Jeff + I most certainly do not put food on our heads!
We try to get out of the house + be social as much as possible. There was a meetup with my mom group Vancouver Active Moms + Moms to Be at the Vancouver Aquarium.
I always think Langdon is such a grown up big boy now – but whenever I see him teensy tiny at the park amongst all the big kids running around his little crawling form, I let out a sigh of relief. He’s still my baby.
I often drive down Fraser + the cafe Sweet Salt always caught my eye with strollers lined up outside the shop. My buddy Tiffany + I wanted to scope it out. It’s so cute + SUPER baby/kid friendly! I let Langdon loose in their little play area + sipped my London Fog!
That is until little Maddie joined Langdon. It’s so interesting because Langdon is quite the rambunctious ragamuffin at home, but he really is a very sensitive little man. And Madison is wee + tiny but full of spunk + power! Look at the two of them!
HAHAHA!!!! This is classic. Langdon with his furrowed brow + Maddie with her roar! Langdon is a little emo rocker Dashboard Confessional boy. Maddie is the lead singer of The Runaways.
What’s that in his mouth??? I just want to tell all you new mommies, it’s the only teether Langdon likes – the Zo-li. I’ve tried Sophie, the ones you put in the freezer, etc. + he was having none of it. This teether can get to the spots that need soothing. It’s kind of shaped like a toothbrush.
Now Langdon + I can communicate with one another, he’s sturdy enough to not always be so precious with + he can play by himself without shrieking when I step out of the room. Activities are so much more fun + I don’t have to watch him like a hawk as much as I used to. All of a sudden one day it dawned on me + yes, it’s become easier! So take heart new mommies! It WILL get easier!
