my pregnancy hormones can barely handle this
but I'm pushing through with our good old crutch denial and oblivion.
Luna will most likely start school this coming week. It's only one day a week at a home based preschool daycare. I really fell in love with the place. A very small class size, all organic, full curriculum with art, music, and education galore. Not sure how I'll be on the day she does start but I'm not necessarily looking forward to it as much as I am excited for her to spread her wings (and brain).
So we took her for a checkup yesterday to get medical clearance. It was her 22 month visit and I think I had skipped the previous well visits letting Travis take her on his own. She was perfectly calm, cool, and collected. I was so impressed, She didn't make a peep other than to say her ABC's for the Dr and she let him fully check her out head to toe. She's 35" tall, weighs 26.2lbs, and has a big ol' head at 18" around. It was definitely awesome to have the Dr comment that she acts more like a four year old in intelligence and demeanor. It's equally as funny when he comments that you've got some "weird stuff at your house" when you talk about the benefits of hemp milk and how much Luna loves it.

Another step in the big girl direction, last night Luna transitioned into
her own bed her own section of the family bed. It's lower than our main part and off to Travis' side, so I can keep the new baby on my side in the future. I'm kind of psyched at how well it came together. I used a crib mattress and two very large futon like sofa cushions we had in storage upstairs. I broke out some super soft sheets, our best quilts and throws from our linen closet to assemble what I now refer to as "the cozy pit". Her and I got cozy in her new bed and watched a movie last night as she fell asleep. I then climbed up to our section and traded sides with Travis for the next few days until she adjusts. The first half of the night there was a lot of waking and mandatory hand holding. Luna is still used to comfort nursing from months ago so she reaches her hands down my shirt when she is trying to sleep. With our bed up higher she wasn't really able to get comfortable and hand holding was just fine to reassure her I wasn't going anywhere. Even though I still had insomnia, Luna slept great for the remainder of the night. I was so proud when I lightly woke around 8:30 this morning to turn over and just find her still comfy cozy and waking up on her own. I'm looking forward to another movie in bed with her tonight and hopefully another easy night of transition. As soon as she stops waking to hold my hand I'll switch back to my side and start prepping for the new baby.
love my big girl.
