21 Months


My boy is turning 21 months old today (ok, not today, on 27 of June) . Life has been chaotic these days. Huge changes. Nereus was not making it easier at all. He was teething and his pain was making him whining all day long. It's very sad to say, but I had no patience with him. I was feeling so much pressure to make everything right and I was so busy that it was impossible to cuddle and breastfeed all day long. I even yelled at him on my most overwhelming situations. I feel so bad about theses moments. I'm so sorry baby. I felt that I shouldn't share these bad moments, but what I want to do here is to keep every memory and I can'to do this if I'm not 100% honest, right?

Now, on the fun stuff! Nereus's development has left me shocked.

* He has actually started talking!!! And when I say talking, I mean really talking. Like..."Nereus say this!".."Zees". Or "what's mama's job"?..."Low (=clown)".

* He's still obsessed with books and trucks.

* He has been making all these -fun for the parent- activities, like throwing toys on the toilet...fancy!

* He's been biting me on purpose when he breastfeeds. Ok, I know that this is not a fun fact about Nereus, but it happens and it hurts so much. When I started writing this, I was actually asking for help from you guys...but now I have already found the solution for us and I'm sharing it with you. I really hope that this can help you. So the situation was like this...Nereus was biting me and I was really hurt and confused and I was angry of course and yelling and crying. Nereus was as confused as I was and he was crying too. So, one day, when he bit me, I just kindly told him that biting hurts and that he shouldn't do it if he wants to breastfeed. Then, immediately, I suggested that we should play with his cars or read a book etc. and voila! no more biting! Seriously. That easy.

* Unexpected hugs, kisses or tickles make my heart melt.

* Jumping seems to be very interesting for Nereus lately.

* He is so social and amazing with other kids. He shares his toys and plays so well. Even if other kids hit him or grab his toys from his own hands he rarely makes a deal about it. I just wish I had a friend with a kid so we could hang out and he could have company.

(Seriously where does the time goes...I know, that's all I'm saying these days. But seriously I've never been more busy. I really really do miss this place.)

  1. I am so lucky Jarvis never tried to bite me while breastfeeding. Oh don't get me wrong he is a biter. Just never the boob.

  2. Eloise loves punching & pinching me when she's eating so I'm afraid she'll be a biter!

  3. I love your honesty! I've been short of patience lately.....from being absolutely exhausted! The baby I'm growing is taking all of my energy...not leaving much for anything else. It happens my friend!

    Nereus sounds like he has the same demeanor as Amar'e! I really wish were closer to have a playdate! We could have coffee and talk while they played together! That sounds like so much fun to me! If we ever travel to Greece we should set this up! :)

    Amar'e bite a few times and she was old enough to understand when said "No, that hurts and please don't do it or I wont be able to feed you" and it worked like it did with Nereus. Im glad he stopped bitting that easy because getting that good mama milk is really good for him and you! :)

    P.S.-Thanks for entering my giveaway!! I wish you luck!! :)

    1. My friend I admire you for having 3 kids. Me and Philip don't even think about having a second one. I wish we were living closer,too. It would be awesome.

      Thanks for everything!
