Name/Age: Kristi, 30
Kid(s) Name/Age: DD1 (4), Lainey 18 months
Height: No idea
Weight: Maybe 22 pounds?
Clothing size: 18 months fits perfectly, and has for quite a while
Diaper size: Fuzzibunz one size
Nursing? How's that going? Yep. It's going fine, but I'd like nightweaning to happen sooner rather than later, and I wouldn't mind getting down to 2-4 times per day. She thinks if I'm sitting down she should be nursing, plus lots of other times, too.
Talking yet? Favorite words? She is quite the talker and is completely verbal. She can talk in pretty much complete sentences and repeat pretty much anything you ask her.
Most recent milestone: Counting. She can count from 1-4 on her own, and fill in numbers up to 10. She also loves to sing and can fill in words if you sing "Twinkle Twinkle" to her
Number of naps each day? 1 - 45 minutes
Sleeping through the night? Ha! She wakes 1-2 times per night on a GOOD night. We won't talk about the bad ones.
Favorite toy: Pull toy doggie or any other dog toy
Favorite food: Cheese
Favorite song: "Twinkle Twinkle"
Favorite book: A book that has pictures of babies making different faces
Best thing about this age: Seeing all the new things they learn and discover, and watching her play with her sister
Most frustrating thing: Lack of uninterrupted sleep, and tantrums (which she doesn't have often so I won't complain too much)
Sibling update! Are you: TOC, TTC, pregnant, have a new baby? Still undecided. If it were up to me alone we'd probably be TTC.

Nursing? How's that going? Yep. Same boat as Kristi & Lainey except we have night weaned.

Favorite book: She likes Knuffle Bunny and all her Eric Carl books.
Best thing about this age: She's starting to play pretend and it is OMFG cute!
Most frustrating thing: The constant nursing during the day and the beginnings of the terrible twos.

Anything else you'd like to share? We are seeing a dietician about his weight and he doesnt eat unhealthy, just too much, so we are slowly trying to reduce portion size and give more fruits and veggies, which is challenging because he doesnt always want them. They dont want him to lose weight, but plateau for a bit.
