13 Months Come and Gone..

Not much new going on around here in the Kleckner house. I decided to move Astoria into a daycare facility beginning June 1st. Her time at the home daycare has been amazing and I will use her again should we have another. Debbie did everything we could have wanted for Astoria from using breast milk, switching to formula, using all of my homemade baby food, and even switching to cloth diapers. I'm not sure I would have gotten all of that at a daycare. Now however, I think she needs more. She needs more interaction with kids her own age (much older or younger at Debbie's) and more independence (Debbie, I think, still sees her as an infant). Astoria is not walking but can crawl as fast as a blink. I'm getting a little more jealous of those around her walking yet still trying to hold onto the fact that she will indeed get there! I'm so ready though, I know people say you'll hate it when she walks but I'm ready, ready to have her follow me around, chase after the cats and all of those fun things. I went back looking at pictures this week and noticed a few that looked very similar except for the baby growing and all, hehe.

Hours after coming home from the hospital.

August at Nana's.

Just the other day at home. Boy has she grown!

They sure do grow way to fast! I think your right about the daycare, it's a great move. Can't wait to see you guys again!

Aww.. she's so precious! My neice will be one in just a few weeks and isn't walking yet, I think everyone just does it in their own time, just like potty training. Good luck on the daycare move, I'm sure she'll love it!

She'll be walking soon enough, I'm sure. I was the same way with Katie- eager for her to crawl, then eager for her to walk...I'm okay with Zuzu taking her time getting mobile :)

Good luck with the day care. I'm sure you made the right decision. I think good day cares will accommodate some of your choices (i.e., feeding and diapering). Looking forward to hearing how it goes!
