If there are typos, I apologize. I'm typing 1 handed and Ashlynn is trying to help! LOL
Anyway, we are doing well
(totally just had to bribe her with a toy because she kept clicking the mouse.. but now she's back)
Ash is still nursing 2-4x a day (usually 3 times a day) but nursed at least 5 or 6 times today.. not sure why, but it drove me nuts!
She's starting to talk sooo much more! I'd say her vocabulary is easily 40+ words and she can say quite a few 2-4 word sentences Even if she doesn't know the word for something, she can get her point across pretty easily.
She also counts to three! Usually I say one, then she says "two, two..THREE!!!!" She LOVES the number three. but tends to repeat two.. LOL I think its how she says one..not sure.
She's also hitting the terrible twos..ALREADY!
When she's really mad, she bites.
When she's feeling fresh, she swings at whoever is around.
Spits because she thinks it's hilarious..
I admit, I do say no..a lot! No biting, No hitting, No spitting.. It's just the quickest way to get her to stop.
but I do try to say "We don't ____" or "That's not nice, please don't ____"
She's finally sleeping through the night!! She's still in my bed and I it.
She spent her first night away from me last week when I went to the carnival with a few friends.
My best friend was only supposed to have her for a couple hours but then she decided she wanted to keep Ash overnight. Hardest thing ever! But Ashlynn loved it and slept great.
I hope everyone is doing well! I've been super busy and don't really get much time to go on JM..sorry! I'll try to be around more often.
I have to get offline now though.. Ash is dancing to some music while lying across me and pointing at the "Bub" (bug) on the wall..
Miss you all!!

Thanks for the update! Colton is starting to give me STTN until 5am or so, then he nurses and goes back to sleep! That's better than nothing. He's been pretty consistent with that for a couple weeks now.
