Folks, we have turned a corner with little-miss-Selah in these last few weeks. She is cruising, loudly voicing her opinion, and it seems, growing up before my very eyes.
I have talked about our adventures with baby-led weaning before, but what I didn't take into account is that it is really BABY LED. Selah and her 8 teeth have taken the initiative and let me know very clearly that she is finished breastfeeding. She doesn't want to have anything to do with nursing anymore; apparently there are far more exciting things in this world to attend to! I'm a little surprised that our breastfeeding journey ended a few weeks shy of her first birthday, but here we are.
If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen some of my tweets about the fact that she is also refusing to drink milk. She won't take it, period. It doesn't matter if it's in a cup or bottle, cold, or warm... internet people, I even tried to give her chocolate milk, and she SPIT IT OUT. I'm not sure she's human...
The antics are just beginning; I know that. She's discovered that she can reach her bedroom doorknob by standing up in her crib. Oh my. Nap-time has become quite a little adventure of explaining that we do not open the bedroom door.. I tell her sternly, but she is SO CUTE. Just look at that little sleepy, milk-refusing, non-sleeping baby!
