L is weaned and now drinking about 16 oz of milk a day and lots of snacks.  He has the most emphatic way of saying "Yeah!" while he nods his head and his whole body affirms with excitement.  He signs please on my chest when he wants a bottle.  It's like he knows what please is, and when he really wants something, he signs it on me.  He's such a darling boy.

in love with books

Today L fell in love with books.  We sat on the couch for 30 minutes as he flipped through the same story collection over and over.  He got used to manipulating the pages, then he started pointing to elements and asking me to tell him about them.  "Da?"  he'd say and look at me.  I would say the word and sign it.  "Frog", "Bird", "Car" over and over.  It was awesome.  Then he tore a page.  But it was awesome.  Welcome to the world of books L.  I hope it is nice to you.  I hope you are nice to them.

need to sleep

My new years resolutions include keeping the counter clear and weaning the baby.  Poor L and I have not been sleeping.  L also has a cold.  So he's been on the nebulizer.  And we get no sleep.  I've tried weaning him at night several times but always go back to nursing him because of traveling or visitors and I have to keep him quiet.  Well, I need to sleep so I'm done.  Sorry baby.  I love you.
