As we inch closer to my son’s first birthday, I am finding out just what a big deal this is.
Most things are pretty obvious and exciting! Celebrating his first birthday party. The introduction of whole milk (NO MORE FORMULA…HOORAY!) He will be eating all table food! (This is going to make my life a lot easier, I think.)
The parts that make me sad… He’ll be a “toddler”, not a “baby”. He’ll be moving to a new class at daycare. He will sleep on a nap mat, not in a crib (good luck with that!) He will be drinking from a sippy cup during meals and snacks. (I’m afraid he’s going to have a tough time with this…he’s pretty attached to his bottle!)
But maybe he will surprise me. He usually does. 🙂
So, on that note, any recommendations from “been there, done that” moms on the toddler years? (Particularly info on transitioning to cow’s milk, meal plans, etc.) I need all the help I can get!
